Years ago a government worker tried to get my mom on Welfare. My mom has NEVER TAKEN welfare or food stamps.
She later found the gov’t worker was doing it for the worker’s job security.
Can anyone explain why there a quota for signing up people for a government benefit program exists at all?
“What do you bet the Boston bombers were on SNAP?”
Bingo! Drudge posted a link to an article stating the eldest brother’s family was on welfare.
Our Tax Dollars At Work...Destroying America!
Gubbamint exists to grow gubbamint.
That news was on the media this AM.
ALL of them: Mom-Dad-older brother-younger brother-wife of older brother-3 year old son of older brother.
They wore expensive clothes and had lots of expensive sports equipment. One attended college & had a dorm room. They were known to drive Porche’s and Mercedes Benz’s. They partied & smoked Pot.
I have worked all of my life & I have never driven either!!
The American taxpayers were bilked AGAIN-—and these people hated America & were willing to kill Americans with their actions.
We have FAR too many fox inside the American henhouse, IMO.
This country needs a severe housecleaning.
We know someone who works as a councilor for the Chicago School System. She mentioned in a small gathering how her main job was to recruit students and families on to disability, not council them on their careers or how to get into college.
She explained that disabled students (ADHD and such) are excluded from test averages for the school and those who are on financial aid, benefit the school greatly in terms of federal money.
She felt lost, and lamented about how this was not what she had signed up for (she is a good Christian woman who volunteered to work the inner city, because she thought she could make a difference).
She said she was always under pressure to get more families on public aid, and on disability.
Government is full of liberal go getter entrepreneurs expanding their growing bureaucrat empire. Obviously this is going on in food stamp/EBT programs. More people on EBT means more Gov’t employees in your bureaucrat mini-empire. More power and higher salary for such go-getters
“If you’re not part of the solution...there’s money to be made prolonging the problem”
The goal is clearly to crash the system. That is bad, but if we as conservatives plan well, we can reset it back to 1776 America instead of 1918 Russia.
