While standing in line at a convenience store near my work:

In front of me in line,The "woman" with 4 kids pays for a bunch of candy and gum with a WIC card and a Lonestar Card "aka food stamps". She walks out and gets into a 2007ish Ford Explorer with rims and leather.

Then there is a group set up in the parking lot of the store selling food and ice that they just got for free from the "POD" around the corner.

For those of you who work (which is where I am now), WORK HARDER! You are supporting these vermin with your tax money.

It never ceases to amaze me that this type of stuff still goes on. The people that do these types of things with government assistance that we taxpayers bear the bill on, really ruin it for those that genuinely rely on government assistance due to disability, etc.

What a shame.

You should definitely report these people.

It's horrible to see it actually happening, but you can't really be too surprised that it does happen.


I can't imagine what kind of person would take advantage of the system like that... I have no idea. They probably don't fall into a stereotype do they?

Yeah, here in Austin "Refugees" are whining that they are not getting more comfortable accomodations and free services provided to them.

This ain't a vacation and emergency accomodations are not suppose to rival the Hilton. they SHOULD be thankful they have a dry place to sleep, food, and water to keep them alive.

Anything else that they might happen to get from volunteers giving on their own accord should be considered a luxury....

A friend of mine had a name for those types of people.....OT.....oxygen thieves! He was referring to his sister in-law, but it applies here.

Be careful on quick judgements, I know people on welfare that I will and could at any time let them borrow my navigator to go buy groceries or what ever. They too need time away from their lives and a little luxury, like buying candy for their kids may be all they can do for them as a treat. I'm not naieve but not everybody can fit on that latter we're tring to climb and I feel blessed that there is a small handhold for me to hold on to.

Tell me about it I drive an old truck and give up alot of things(except hunting and fishing) so my wife can stay home with our boy. I am not complaining one bit b/c thats the way it should be in my eyes. I have a problem with 600 a month just for medical insurance comes out of my check to cover all the scum ect ect. Then see people like that and it lights a fire in me. Pretty **** sad. Shark bait is not a bad idea.

Oh PLEASE! If they need time away from their lives they can get it on an interview. They do NOT deserve luxury when they cannot provide basics on their own. What they can give their kids is a great lesson on good decision making - 4 candy bars at $1 each is $4 - thats enought to get bread and balogna to feed the family for a few days instead of a few minutes.

I HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

ANYONE CAN FIND THEMSELVES IN THAT POSITION FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME - AND I REPEAT, ANYONE.

Don't EVEN try to make excuses for people who live in this country in poverty for an extended period of time. They are there because they are either stupid, lazy, or choose to be. It's bad decision making over and over and over again that keeps someone in poverty for extended periods of time.

Just like there is generational wealth in this country where people show their kids and teach them how to manage their resources, there is generational poverty where degenerate loosers show their kids how to mooch off the system and get something for nothing.

Luxury my ***!!!

Where's the tylenol........

I just saw a person here at work (ER) with "tongue pain". I looked at her tongue and saw absolutely nothing abnormal with her tongue-except that it was pierced. I told her to avoid spicy stuff and acidic stuff for the next few days and it will be fine. then the S.O. says 'we've been drinking a lot of OJ lately'. there ya go,
who was their 'insurance' carrier......................medicaid
doesn't cost them anything so they go to the ER for anything.

I agree, people are in that situation because they are dumb and lazy. I ask this, do you know any smart, hard working poor people?

You can never fix poverty, because you can't fix dumb and lazy.

These are the same friggin loosers that drive their new car up and park in a Handicapped spot with a bought hanging tag, and roll their fat butts out to go shop with their WIC cards. When exactly did fat, stupid, lazy and unethical become a handicap?

Don't even bother to flame me with your retarded rationalizations of how this could be legit, I see it every day, with 99.9% of it being fat, stupid, lazy or unethical.

Sorry - this has NOTHING to do with Bluewater fishing, but it is QUITE topical currently in our Bluwater community given the nature of the disaster we are dealing with now.

Good people in Galveston and Freeport and Boliver will be on FEMA support for quite a while - people who desperately need it, deserve it, and typically are embarrassed to have to resort to using it - but they should NEVER be embarrassed.

It's the dirtbags who have no sense of shame who need to be drug out in the road and beat with a bat. I personally wish I could be the one swinging it.

Where the hell IS that Tylenol?!?!?!

I`ll go ahead and tie in this subject matter with blue water fishing just to make it more legit...

In the ocean and in nature, if your slow, stupid, lazy, and sometimes just unlucky...your gone...recycled into the protien chain of life....

quite un-naturally, the human species actually profligates these failures thru welfare and all other manner of "scocial advancement"......

ultimately the species is weakened....dramatically faster that you might imagine...

take a walk through a Target store on any givin day and have a good look at America.....

make your own conclusions about our state of health, nutrition and education...or lack there of....

quite a parady.......?? eh??

You should have told them to eat LOTS and LOTS of pineapple for a week.
