I don't have a hate for people who get assistance...?  Wow, aren't we touchy...

Maybe, but it also seems you're also the touchy one. What, one topic wasn't enough? If you look at both or your posts on this subject you can feel the hate coming off of them. If you post a subject like this, expect that some people won't agree with you.

    The "fat slob" will need someone to wait hand and foot on him.  He is too dang lazy to fix his own food...  Hell he is so dang lazy to go to the bathroom..  Why not just relieve himself right there on the couch.. I am curious to know if he went to his father's funeral.  He refused to go to his mother's because he didn't want to get up for the 10 am funeral.  (He had played the play-station all night the night before.)

     

    This slob is not handicapped...  He is well able to get up off the couch... fix his own lunch.. drive a car... take a bath,  play basketball...

    He wouldn't tie his shoes in school.. He said he did not want to bend over to tie them.  If I wanted them tied I would have to tie them..

    I thought,  "hell let him fall..."  I am not going to enable his laziness..

    In one place, you say 'need'. In another place, you say 'able'. There is a difference.Wink

    No one 'beats' the gov't. Ever. They are (as I explained before) in on it. Think about it. If you are a gov't agency created to solve a problem, what happens to you if that problem goes away?Approve How soon are you going to put yourself out of work? About the same time as this guy -->Evil Looking goes shopping for long-undies, that's when.

    I want to clarify; if person (or group) B is willing to help person C, I have no issue with that. We do that here at LP with our systems, code, etc. 

    The problem is when person B has some type of coercive force applied by agency D to do so. When there is a barrier between payer and recipient, there will be fraud somewhere. What agency D does, among other things, is allow a family to offload their ne'er-do-well relatives. Unpleasant, but true. There is a certain state where the "jackpot" of choice, is a Down's Syndrome baby.   

    Raise the minimum wage all you like. Drop money out of helicopters if you wish. Electronically add $1 million dollars to the bank accounts of every american. Prices will simply rise faster, and you will create more poor people than less. In economics, nothing happens in a vacuum.

    In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
    Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

      The posts are completely different... One do you think one should repay the assistance they are receiving if they hit a huge jackpot.. the other.. should people who cannot feed themselves be allowed to play the lottery...

        I was/am referring to people who refuse to work... and receive monthly assistance to eat... and a check each month...

        Some people have figured out how to beat the government to keep from working.    A student I had my first year teaching... put a dog collar around this neck to get a check started..

        He stayed at home and laid on couch since quitting school... His father had to wait hand and foot on him.  If his father fixed him something to eat that he didn't want he would throw it at his father.. The father died this week...  Not sure what is going to happened to the fat slob now..

        There is a real serious mental illness problem in the world.People you consider  lazy may have a

        mental  illness.there are parents,spouses,siblings all over this world  that have to wait on them

        because no matter how they try they can not do for themselves.the world is not perfect,people are not perfect.

          Both or those posts were bread out of hatred for individuals that God forbid if they hit the lottery and have more than you.

            One helpful solution is JOBS which we have been exporting oversees for years.  It won't cure all the problems as you will ALWAYS have some people that CHOOSE to NOT work and find a way to get assistance.  And you will always have those who are mentally/physically ect unable to work, which is what the system is for. 

            But if we have good, highpaying jobs you will see a lot less abuse of the system.

            And since the goods would be made in the United States we would have ALOT fewer problems such as LEAD in the pain ect...

            The new industry that might help pull this country in this direction is Green Energy.  I could fill pages on the benefits of this industry for us but I think its speaks for itself.

              "Should one play if they have others feeling"

              No, one should only play when it feels right.

                  Maybe you didn't intend to show disdain and hatred for people who need public assistance, but just look at your poll wording to see how readers could get that idea.  You may have had the people you think are "cheaters" in mind when you posted, but the polls were worded in a completely hateful, disrespectful way that appears to include ALL people on public assistance, and doesn't even allow for someone to choose a non-hateful answer.

                  Win should pay back taxpayers for assistance

                  Do you think one should spend money on food while receiving food

                    I believe all tntea's asking is....if you receive assistance, should you be spending your money on lottery tickets? Simple enough. The answer should be, no, they should spend money more wisely. Unfortuntely that's not the case. I read somewhere that the majority of players are women, the elderly and the "poor". Nowadays everyone's poor, lol,  or your rich and why would rich people play?

                      Just wondering if someone who had been kept up by taxpayers.. regardless if it was a disability or lazy.. Would you pay back a million or so if you won 48 million dollars...

                      If you received 10 years of assistance.. it wouldn't be a million dollars...

                            the welfare bums live in apartments close to my house. they get their cheques and there gone in less than 10 days. some of them seem quite capable of working, just useless and lazy. this 1 lady stands by the store and asks for change(yes, she buys scratch offs and goes to the casino). i gave her once. she asked me again. i told you, " well if you would have paid my 2$ back, i would lend you a little again", but of you course you never see them when they get their money.

                            my buddy lives in an apartment. the people there get there cheques, spend them, then hibernate for another 25 days until the process is repeated over. they all hover around the mailbox on a certain day at a certain time. abuse the system?? truly!! try to sell their bus tickets for smokes, food vouchers for money.

                            the able bodied who walk with their signs at the intersections looking for hand outs. some of them shake their heads or get angry when they get no cash. like we got to feed you partner?? go get a job.

                            i'll say it once and i'll say it again....canada is not a country that cares about the working man!! (yeah, this might not be relevant to the topic, but it's true)
