Political Correctness means You aren't to offend others so it suits an agenda, yet the agenda allows for others to offend you. F that!. Grow a skin and live and let live. Don't like my attitude, remove yourself from it cause with me, it aint changing. This country has no balls left as it try'* to cater to each minority and minority view. What happens to majority rules, don't like it, LEAVE.

I think this is related, how my deadbeat uncle applies for food stamps and he doesn't earn a penny, he actually lives in his mother'* basement and leeches off of her. He just gets this money that I'm paying into because he cant get off his *** or put the drugs down. He lives off from my grandmothers money that she worked to the bone for and he feels he is entitled to it. And if someone comes over to borrow money from her he gets pissy cause its not going to him. So I agree with every bit of that article..

What I like, is Kentucky passed a law, requiring people who apply for public assistance pass a drug test.
Its about time! I have to pass a drug test to get a job!
For someone whos worked in retail for way too long, I get sick watching some people buy what they do. If people really need it, then yeah, help them out. But what gets me, is that people who come in the store, paying with food stamps buy shrimp, lobster, buy 30 packs of beer, buy soda and all sorts of junk by the cart full. I mean, I bust my *** and eat shrimp flavored ramen so they can buy shrimp and lobster? Hells no. (Not that I really buy that junk now, but I used to have to.) I saw way too many people take advantage of the system in the last place I worked. I couldn't stand it. I had to be a front line cashier for awhile if it got busy, and they eventually had to take me off before I jumped over the counter and strangled the next idiot buying top grade cuts of meat and seafood waved their EBT card in my face.

Why would anyone want to work, when working means struggling to buy food period, but not working lets them eat stuff like that? I think its one of the most stark examples of how our system is broken. People who don't work, eat better than those who do. Why work then? And they know it. So they continue to not work! WTF people?!?
