    Yeah, at first that was kind of funny - until you think about it for more than a few seconds - then the Rage-O-Meter goes to FULL TILT! :mad:

    I got that in an e-mail from the mother of a good friend a few days ago. There is a huge anger factor there. :mad:

    I work in a town that is rather, how shall I say, run down and devalued due to the nature of its inhabitants.

    On a daily basis, I see people buying large quantities of junk food (chips, candy, soda, and various otherwise nutrition-less foods) on the LINK card (the food stamp debit card), and then take those 'groceries' out to their ginormous Lincoln Navigators with 24" rims and chrome decorations, while being parked in handicapped spots (with no visible physical ailments).

    I wish I could say that the above statement was exaggerated, however it is not.


    This photo hits right at home, and it makes me want to puke in their soup.

    We have a regular beggar near where I work in Beverly Hills. As I was walking by the other day he had to put his Styrofoam change cup down so he could answer his cell phone.:eek::eek::eek:

    Yep that is a good expression. I work at a food bank once a week and whille most truly need the help there are some that are taking advantage. There are weeks that we don't have meat to give away and those that get upset are also those that honestly don't seem to need the help (200+ pounds, on the cell phone while waiting and pissed that there isn't more of a selection). Those that honestly need it are happy for what we can give and with out exception thank us. The rest/few are rude and insulting. The food bank is a community effort and while a lot of what we have to offer comes from local stores the rest is up to what those that can share. All we ask for is picture state ID to show you are from the area and if you claim four people you have to have three underage kids with you. I wish we had the Ban hammer at the food bank as it is clear there are some that don't deserve the food given.

    Welcome to the United States of America, where over 40% of its population is on welfare, while only less than 3% truly need it. :mad:

    I doubt 40%+ are on welfare that would mean 4 out of 10 adults are on welfare. I might have my blue sky glasses on but would like to see the source for that makes that a fact, also I expect more than 3% honestly needs help.

    There are a lot of homeless people with cell phones now days. With the easy to buy no contract pay as you go phones they are easy to get and keep.

    I see the biggest problem now is that everyone is to worried about what someone else is doing. If more people would just worry about themselves this world would be a much safer and much more fun place to live.

    We have a guy that walks around with the big black medical boot on one leg. Well every 2 or 3 weeks it switches to the other leg. It is really funny to me I don't give him money I don't let the ones in DC wash my window they start coming to my car I wait until they get close to it then turn on the washer full tilt and spray them down as well.

    +1 Falseharmonix. I live in the welefare state of Illinois. I see abuses all the time. The governor (putz) want a 50% increase in the state income tax too otherwise thousands of 350 lb. welfare moms will starve. What a Frik'n joke!
    I don't believe 40% of Americans are on welfare YET but I KNOW FOR SURE that at least that many pay NO TAXES.

    For the longest time I came to the same conclusions as you guys about poor people being fat they must not be starving but then you realize..

    All the food they are eating is loaded with saturated and trans fat as well as sodium. Cheaper food like Ramen noodles at like .39 cents a meal (one packet is over 2000mg of Sodium, 2000mg being a daily serving) and the 1$ menus at McDonald's are what these people can afford to eat and eat alot of. That is why most poor people are so fat. Its bad nutrition it's an over load of un-healthy fat and sodium.

    Then comes the rest like being lazy not working out or having a job which leads to being fat too but I think the nutrition part really hits home.

    Not defending any of the ridiculousness that goes on I hate it as much as the next guy but this is just something to consider for the honest poor folk who look fat and happy not that you can't be happy even if your poor.

    Our local sh** heads have a pretty good scheme worked out, people who are fond of crack go to their local drug dealer and trade their link card for some crack and then the drug dealer uses said link card at ghetto grocery stores that dont ask questions. So alot of times when we go into houses we find freezers full of steak and other luxury food. Some of these guys eat a hell of alot better than me. Whats not appealing about welfare? do whatever the hell you want all day, have sex, eat, fight the po-lice, drive super nice cars that were paid for with drug money, have 3 or 4 blackberries in your HuDD house that all the utilities are paid for.

    The system is broken...........FIRE is the only cure:mad:

    One can only hope a life of honesty and virtue a life without looking over your back and sleeping well at night knowing no one is out to get you is worth more then all the cars, hookers, steaks, guns and money these guys have.
