Its the typical crapola argument used to discredit people on welfare. Because if one per4son abuses the welfare system, all of them are is the inconsolable argument.

To start out, In most states its illegal to cash welfare checks at casino's or use welfare money to buy booze or similar products.
:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I Totally agree with Lemon Law on this...Its the typical crapola argument used to discredit people who through no fault of there own are on welfare in order to make ends meet!!

This is not just one person, There is widespread abuse of welfare and it must stop now.
no it is not wide spread abuse of the system at all!!

I cannot believe for a moment that you of all people would advocate throwing people who through no fault of there own are on welfare and follow the rules out in the cold to fend for themselves......

Maybe because most people who are on welfare are there because of making poor choices?

Go to your local wally world on whatever day the refill food stamp cards (used to be 1st and 15th not sure about now) and stand outside for a few minutes. If you are the least bit resourceful you will find plenty of people willing to sell you their foodstamps for 50 cents on the dollar.

The problem is a lot more widespread than your side makes it out to be yet not as bad as the other side makes it out to be.

LOL! Leave it to our politicians to pass laws that are virtually impossible to enforce.

No, A much better idea is to stop wasting money on this nonsense which serves to gather votes and produce more class warfare. End welfare which is the only real solution
Truly hungry people, which we do not have in the US mostly due to programs such as this, are absurdly bad for society. You see, real hunger always leads to very desperate actions because the truly hungry people are indeed desperate. Those desperate actions can be seen in any 3rd world shithole that has actual hungry people. While I have seen the system abused, the actual dollar amounts are so insignificant that its not even worth thinking about ending them and putting society at risk of those desperate people.

There is massive abuse, read the rest of the thread. Where do you think the money for these welfare leeches comes from? It comes from taxpayers, I dont want to pay taxes for this crap. As well its to get more votes so people are more reliant on government.

I will advocate people be thrown out of the country when they steal my tax dollars

If I dont pay my taxes then I go to jail so essentially I am forced to pay for them.


Are you really that stupid to believe I would pay my taxes if they were voluntary? Oh wait I forgot I was talking to my stalker:D

Taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for this nonsense though, If people want to donate money for this then let them but dont force it
Dont force me to pay for all the shit I don't want to pay for. That goes for everyone. From now on we all get to decide exactly what programs get finding and directly pay our tax dollars.

What could go wrong?

So it seems you are sarcastically saying that people should never complain about what the government spends money.

What could go wrong?

Getting rid of corporate welfare is a partisan issue?
According to the moron I was quoting it is.

I am against all welfare, yet this idiot ASSumes that I support corporate welfare which is still welfare and supported by the pos obama.

He wants to get rid of corporate welfare but not other forms of welfare

Incorruptible, you are claiming massive abuse:
There is massive abuse of this.
Yet, you've done nothing to support that statement.

Dozens, out of 200 MILLION does not equal massive.

And, if you had half a clue, you would realize that we would need to spend MORE money on welfare to fund more people to investigate fraud. While I agree, and I doubt that anyone in this thread disagrees that people shouldn't be abusing the system. But, if it only amounts to dozens out of 200,000,000 transactions, then the cost of fighting that limited abuse would exceed the amount wasted through that abuse.

It's much the same as the marijuana users on welfare in Florida - Florida spent far more money testing people than it saved by finding a few people who used marijuana while on welfare. As such, I don't want them spending $2 of my tax dollars to save $1. Since you appear so burdened by this entire thing, perhaps you'll chip in more of your own money to help fight it. Seriously - donate extra money to the government with a note "please spend this extra money to fight welfare fraud." I mean, if that's the way you really feel about it, then you should be willing to do that. Else, you should shut the hell up about other people staying within the law when they pay their own taxes (and not paying extra out of principle.)

you say most of the people....as if most of the people made bad choices.....one bad choice does not equal irresponsibility......everybody needs a 2nd chance.....

Thats just jibberish the bad choice argument.......there are professional people who through NO FAULT of their own other than they were in the wrong place at the wrong time....

Dude you really need to be more compassionate and stop lumping everybody together!!

A few dozen people abusing the system does not mean that all abuse the system...

As far we we know you yourself could be collecting government aid...but we would never know it...
you come accross as being uncaring and real douche nozzle...etc..

There is no use in pointing this out, or even attempting to actually converse with him Dr Pizza, he is simply trolling.
Because of this obvious trolling I will offer him nothing but contempt and the several pictures I have until he is gone.
