STORY TIME.
>grabbing milk at the grocery store for my Reeses Puffs.
>get in line behind a woman in her early 20's
>notice she has a lot of freshly done tattoos
>compliment her on them because they look well done
>she pulls out food stamps to pay with
>asks cashier for cigarettes
>also see vodka amongst her food items
>she pulls out her IPHONE to answer a text
>mfw I see another twat abusing the system

I'm really tired of people that don't need help, getting it anyway. If you can afford high quality tattoos, cigarettes, alcohol, and foot the bill for a smartphone, you don't need food stamps or welfare.

The idea of shared contribution-shared benefit is politically dead in this country. Granted not all of the 47% of people that pay $0 in Federal income tax are lazy good-for-nothings, like retirees or unemployed/under employed looking for work, but a good chunk of those people don't feel it is their duty to contribute at all to the betterment of the nation. It those "rich people" that should pay for everything. That's both childish and selfish. Welcome to Greece, ladies and gentlemen, where everyone that works for the government is intrinsically better than those that actually contribute something to the economy.   
   
My only hope is that those heading into college today, regardless of their major, take a basic business class. There they'll learn about the differences between operations and overhead. Business with too much overhead and not enough operation go out business. There will always be a non-zero quantity of overhead in any business, but if it grows too much the whole enterprise (hence the gif) crumbles.    
   
I hope they understand that in any economy the government is overhead. Yes, some is necessary. We  need cops, firefighters, teachers, and regulators. But the Federal government actively encourages people to take themselves out of productive endeavors and grow economic overhead. It won't take much more to kill a once vibrant economy with the huge, cancerous, malignant tumor that is the welfare state.

I'm sad to say, but this is how Welfare works in the United States at this point, and it's disgusting.
Sure. If you're down on your luck, and need to collect, it's understandable.

But I live in New York City. I go past the Welfare Collection Offices every day on my way to work.
It's disgusting seeing the lines of people with 10 Kids out the door, driving up to the office in Cadillacs and **** .

Come on America, really?

Also I hate Affirmative Action. (And I'm an Immigrant.)

I am the only ******* one that sees it? Romney is purposely made to look bad, he is paid to look bad. So Obama can win. Like everyone hates Obama, but he is such a good puppet that the people who are actually in control of America found someone that looks worse than Obama and a offends a lot of people so that Obama can win. American Politics is ****** like that

My family has been below the poverty line my whole life and sadly I've seen a good deal of people on welfare misuse it for alcohol and drugs. While my mom who worked two jobs try and try and get us on state insurance and welfare, and they kept denying her. But we had 3 trashy neighbors, all with atleast 4 kids, who didn't work and sold drugs... and other things to make a living, and they had both welfare and medicare or w.e.

The system is broken, but I also know of quite a few people who were on both and really needed them and worked hard also.

The system is there for people who truly need it, and they are included in the 47%, mixed in with people who don't need it.

Now that i've got your attention,   
   
I am an avid believer that if you receive any sort of benefits/welfare then aswell as &quot;looking for a job&quot; you should have to do some form of community service, whether that be 'cleaning the streets' 'restoring community areas'    
   
This way you are still giving back to society even by not 'working'
