Even 30 years ago, many people would have been embarrassed to take money from government.

To this day I still remember the screaming fit of rage my mother flew into when I brought home the application for the school lunch program they had handed me. She NEVER would have let us have ANYTHING to do with a handout. Today I'm afraid an increasing number of us just shrug our shoulders and look at entitlements as a way to claw back some small portion of the money the Government keeps stealing from us.

As far as I’m concerned, people on welfare should be made to feel like the slaves they are.

Its not because I hate them or want to punish them. Its because I want to make them uncomfortable in poverty and drive them to stand on their own two feet.
