Profound Statement

Sunday, December 29, 2013

The question of the year!!!!??

We are now always hearing about how Social Security is going to run out of money.

How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?

What's interesting, the first group "worked for" their money... the second didn't!!?

    There are plenty of retired folks having to also use welfare in order to survive. And, if it weren't for welfare there would be lots of single mothers, with young ones, in a real hurt. Who should they leave their babies with while they go to work not even making enough to hardly cover the babysitters?

    There are good reasons for welfare. Yes, it is abused. But, maybe we should also look at a government that is paying $300 for a hammer. Who really is scamming the system?

    I know. The land of entitlement is starving out the rich. I know there are lots of people who need help, and I want to see them taken care of, but those who take advantage of the system are killing us.

    I never thought of that but I don't believe it, that AS A will run out of money. I generally hate political discussions. Sorry about your stress. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon We have all seen these people. During the holidays the county I live in does a big drive to buy new coats for kids. While I'm not against this I just don't see why the coats have to be new. I don't buy new for myself or my own children, why do they get new? If they would shop resale they could probably get a lot more coats.

    Very astute!

    I personally think that anyone who receives monies and services from welfare should have to work for it.

    I hear ya'. Welfare was designed to be a safety net, not a get out of work system. A friend of mine thought she wanted to be a social worker, but when they had to do OJT, she quit. She said she would get ticked at the clients in their knock-off Prada and other designer clothes, barely able to get off their smart phones long enough to spin their sob stories about not being able to find work.

    emoticon I have no problem giving welfare money to people who are truly incapable of working or people who are temporarily out of work. But I saw one of my OWN nieces literally raise her children on welfare when she was quite capable of working - and that is just WRONG!! Little wonder that her children are lacking in ambition.

    I believe God put the desire for productively in all of us! My daughter is a stay at home mom who home schools - and money is TIGHT for them living on one salary. But they CAN do it - so I KNOW it is possible.

    Opps - better get off this topic. I feel my blood pressure rising LOL.
