I work in a deli in a small town. Every day I see the same people with food stamp cards, on welfare, barely making it by. What's bothering me is that I'll see them some other time buying cigarettes, lottery tickets, candy and soda.

If you're getting money from the government, there's no reason you need to buy tons of soda, cigarettes, chew and lottery tickets. They're luxuries for people that can afford to have them. None of them "need" it to get by either. Maybe I'm wrong to say they shouldn't be buying any of this but it does bother me.

Another thing. It may just be my town, or even all of America, but it seems like about 75% of women over the age of 35 in my town are extremely obese. All of them have stomachs that hang way below their waste line. Every day at work I see tons of them come into the store and buy their weight in Mountain Dew. It's really disgusting how these women get to be, but it's so common that I just assume that all women get to be like that when they're middle aged. They're the same women that come to our store to buy lottery tickets with their welfare check.

To make this thread useful, does anyone else notice things like this?

Isn't welfare a wonderful thing?

People CHOOSE to be poor with the decisions they make. Stop taking my money and giving it to losers.

In what scientists are calling "fucking gay," large amounts of people have been revealed to suck tremendous amounts of ass. Leading experts have characterized the situation as "retarded."

In my town honestly people aren't that fat. Like the percentage of fat people here has to be like 10-15%(I really have no idea, I'm horrible with percentages, it's not a lot). Also yeah, people shouldn't be blowing their food stamps on loto tickets and cigs but what can you do?
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

Yeah, kind of how a lot of the poorer people that live in my area are always playing the lottery and Keno. It's sad because most of the people that do it are black, and I hate that a lot of the stereotypes about them are true (not all black people).

Why does this outdated idea get brought up in almost every thread? Not always the fittest survive, please open your eyes and realize this.

Let's guess that maybe they need the money, what a conclusion!

That isn't natural selection.

Not every time, however the fittest have a greater chance of surviving.

Anyway, yeah, that is pretty bad. I think the good that welfare does outweighs the cons, though.
#24
I have no problem with paying taxes for welfare and helping my fellow people out.... but when they take advantage like that it just sickens me too. Its totally not right.
#25
yep the whole welfare thing is the same around here. Just kinda like around here when you see a homeless man begging for money but yet hes got a pack of cigs in his pocket?? like wtf, if someone is so kinda enough to give them money they dont need to spend it on fcking cigs. that pisses me off.

Welcome to Liberal America.


Very wrong. Very, very wrong. Although welfare and other social programs would be considered liberal programs, it is not necessarily liberals who abuse them. If you look at the raw data, the states with the lowest median income are predominantly republican conservative states and as such would be those states most likely to abuse the programs.

They don't need the money if they're willing to waste so much money on it, they just want it.

Oh and the best part, these low lifes who should just be kicked out of the human race, are the ones who have 10 illegitimate children who go on to be just as stupid, and then we pay for them to buy these things, heres an idea. Get a job, or better yet kill yourself.

Yeah, but all of the people in this thread are saying that they have experienced people cheating with the welfare money... surely they don't all live in poor conservative states? It couldn't be just in them right?

#38
Don't turn this into a political debate. Republicans and Liberals have nothing to do with this.

EDIT: I live in Northern NY. You might as well consider the entire few counties around here "southern states" with the people in them.

You are an absolute idiot and it is not surprising considering you are voting for McCain. As long as you keep your eyes closed and ignore the issues, you will be able to support McCain/Palin. Once you can get past the smoke and mirrors that McCain has placed in front of you, you will see there is no substance to his campaign. Obama wants to president, McCain just wants to win an election. Please be informed.

Last time I checked, being a black man in politics wasn't so easy...
