There are people in this world who are grown, lucid people who are not supporting themselves. I’m not talking about homeless people or anyone in any way challenged or disabled, I’m talking about those of us with no impediments, disabilities or medical conditions.
Now I’ll say this, if someone else is paying your ticket and you’re not a student and they are your parent, and you are over 18 and CAN support yourself but DON’T……GET A PHUCING JOB!
It’s a pet peeve of mine and one that will always be my biggest issue, on the small and large scale. I detest endless government support for welfare recipients, I deplore perpetual benefits for those that refuse to work. This same government that provides welfare also provides tax cuts and grant programs to utilize for anyone to further their education, but millions of dollars of those funds and programs (which are federally backed) goes unused each year while welfare becomes more and more of a taxpayer burden.

MG: It’s for you governor.
I have been on government assistance and it was at the lowest and brokest point of my life ever. Six months passed and it was time for “recertification” and I just never went back. For me it’s a matter of pride to be able to say, “Once upon a time…” but letting that be history, not present tense.
We should get better at anything we do as we get older, we should constantly seek to better ourselves, our skill set, our abilities, knowledge, wisdom and a lot of other things I can’t think of right now. Some jobs are just a job but a job no matter where it is lends a learning experience that you just have to recognize. With each job you have, you increase your coping skills and people skills, at a bare minimum.
Living off the government, or your parents or anyone for that matter when there is no real justification for it…well it’s just despicable.
What would you suggest as an alternative to welfare? If you were to limit how long welfare could be received, first of all would you limit it? Second if you did, what’s the max? What kind of policies are hot with you that you would address if given the chance?
What would you tell the president? Or the governor of your state? The governing body over your province, or country?
