    I grudgingly pity these poor ignorant souls. For they will be among the first to perish when the SHTF. You can't talk to them and convince them to preppare and take care of themselves and theirs. Uncle Sugar created this monstrous perverted situation to buy votes decades ago. There is going to come a time of atonement for all. Balance will be restored and in the process many will suffer, both good and bad. It is what it is, ..... Life.

    I'd be tempted to tell her.... "So get a JOB!" [stirpot]
    I have NO pity for those who keep popping out little 'tax deductions' while the rest of us are working ourselves to the bone....... She should not have had kids SHE cannot support. I may sound heavy-handed, but I am sick and tired of the Welfare Queens feeding off Society.
    If she can't get a job at WalMart, she's obviously 'experienced' in other ways of generating cash flow - use that 'money-maker'! [monkeyeating]

    In N.Y. they have multiple high rise apartment buildings for low/no income families. Thousands of people stacked on top of each other all living off the taxpayer. What do you think is going to happen the day the welfare checks and the food stamps stop coming!

    Erm, they are going to descend from those towers and plague the surrounding lands like a evil cloud of locust. Devouring/taking every good from local shops. Every day spreading out further and further as they will have raped and pillaged the shop keepers in their local area. Until they can no longer find anything to take. Then they will turn on their own kind. Until eventually they through poor thought, burn down their apartments are forced to walk the streets until they perish. Or something like that.

    I guess human behavior hasn't changed much since Shakespeare's day.

    —From de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, Vol. 2, 140–42

    Thus the men of democratic times require to be free in order to procure more readily those physical enjoyments for which they are always longing. It sometimes happens, however, that the excessive taste they conceive for these same enjoyments makes them surrender to the first master who appears. The passion for worldly welfare then defeats itself and, without their perceiving it, throws the object of their desires to a greater distance. There is, indeed, a most dangerous passage in the history of a democratic people. When the taste for physical gratifications among them has grown more rapidly than their education and their experience of free institutions, the time will come when men are carried away and will lose all self-restraint at the sight of the new possessions that they are about to obtain. In their intense and exclusive anxiety to make a fortune they lose sight of the close connection that exists between the private fortune of each and the prosperity of all. It is not necessary to do violence to such a people in order to strip them of the rights they enjoy; they themselves willingly loosen their hold. The discharge of political duties appears to them to be a troublesome impediment which diverts them from their occupations and business. If they are required to elect representatives, to support the government by personal service, to meet on public business, they think they have no time, they cannot waste their precious hours in useless engagements; such ideal amusements are unsuited to serious men who are engaged with the more important interests of life. These people think they are following the principle of self-interest, but the idea they entertain of that principle is a very crude one; and the better to look after what they call their own business, they neglect their chief business, which is to remain their own masters….By such a nation [a wealthy, self-absorbed one] the despotism of faction is not less to be dreaded than the despotism of an individual. When the bulk of the community are engrossed by private concerns, the smallest parties need not despair of getting the upper hand in public affairs. At such times it is not rare to see on the great stage of the world, as we see in our theaters, a multitude represented by a few players, who alone speak in the name of an absent or inattentive crowd; they alone are in action, while all others are stationary; they regulate everything by their own caprice; they change the laws and tyrannize at will over the manners of the country; and then men wonder to see into how small a number of weak and worthless hands a great people may fall.

    RE: the Shakespeare remark refers back to the play As You Like It--All the world is a stage discourse. I tend to think of this when I hear self-absorbed/self-centered people (rich and poor) speak about the affairs of the world.

    All the world's a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players;
    They have their exits and their entrances,

    The thing they dont show is these people arriving in the cars that they "don't own" to demand that we support them. When I worked in SF CA I would go by the projects and the parking lot was full. Funny thing when you cant have assets to qualify for food stamps ect. May be I'm being cruel but did most of them appear overweight?

    Hey that sounds like zombie's remeber you have to aim for the head.

    That woman said she only got 17 cents on her food stamp card that's 17 cents to much that she didn't work for. They really think that they can have all the kids they want and not work. That society owes them a free life. Im sorry and don't meen to be cold but now that County has been cut off make it the starting point tell the people 30 days and if you are not an older retired person or a handicap person or some one who has worked for years paid into the system. YOU DON'T GET THEM BACK GET A JOB!! I HAVE MY OWN KIDS TO FEED AND PAY FOR!!!

    Green 'IS' people.

    They are beholding to 'The Man'. They are his cattle. If he decides not to feed them. The wolves enter the feed lot and devour them.

    Sure some will fight but they only know their enclosed pens. If they do happen to break free they will die because they know not what to do.

    So moral of the story. Stay the hell away from the city. Let them kill themselves. There is nothing there that you need anyway.

    Just another NOTE, here. I applied for foodStamps here in Alaska last year. Now you have to understand, I am employed, but 50% of my monthly wage goes to pay for my Wife's Company Healthcare Premium. My Annual Income, is well below the Poverty Level in the USA. (middle four figures) the thing that saves "US", is that We also have very few expenses. (Long distance Phone and Internet, that is ALL) So, We apply, and because we have two lots, locally, that are NOT contiguous, (touching each other) we do NOT qualify because only ONE is exempt as our Home, but the other, excludes us. Now if we put both in a Personal Trust, then we would qualify. I have never in my life applied for ANY help from the Government, before, and this was an experiment, just to see if we could. The lady was very sorry for us, and said they (the FEDs) were watching their program, way to careful these days, because of all the Fraud, and that if we had applied the year before she could have got US on, but not "Right Now" and to apply again next year. My SS starts on October 12th, and that will Triple my income... and that will be very Welcome. Oh, and another thing. If I need extra Cash, My skillset is IN DEMAND, and I could increase my income by 20, any day of the week, but I do not need the added burden, or aggravation in my life, so I choose to stay semi-reTIRED. .... If I can do it, so can others, who are willing to WORK...

    Government And The Citizen,published 1904.."The chief danger of this entire system of relief is that it is likely to increase the poverty it is supposed to alleviate,because shiftless individuals will look to the government for help,when they should support themselves." Not directed at anybody here personally,by the way..I hope that's obvious.:)

    Read the first few paragraphs:

    Why Liberals Really Hate The Ten Commandments | Off The Grid News

    A conservative (constrained view) would not have welfare, because he knows that humans are basically lazy without a motivating factor, be that internal or external. "Shiftless" people have no motivation and are content to sit on their butt, devoid of ambition--with the exception of delusions of winning the lottery with their last dollar.

    A liberal (unconstrained view) see man as good and would rise to his potential if unshackled from his poverty (see lotto winners who are now broke for exception). It is worth it to take from those with and give to those without--equality will result in utopia. The proof is Star Trek! No one gets paid, they don't need money because they have every need met. Everyone works hard because they are highly motivated. No slackers when you have creates motivation!

    'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.' - Ronald Reagan
