in my opinion there are some real legit reasons why people need foodstamps and other forms of PA...obviously physically handicapped, if you cannot walk or have no control over your body, then by all means...but what about mental disabilities? i guess if you're crazy you can't work either, so then that would qualify, what if you are a single mom or dad, who works part time and goes to school part time? obviously if the other parent was not involved and not paying any cs, then that mother/father would probably need the assistance, right? like worse cast scenario she/he didn't have anyone to keep the kids while she/he was at school/work, so she/he would need help with childcare, right? and then probably help with foodstamps, possibly help with rent and utilities if she/he is only working a part time job....my point is there are valid reasons for applying for and recieving PA...

the ones who abuse it and get it when they don't need it are the ones that piss me off, the ones that CAN work and WON'T....to me that is stealing, getting free stuff meant for the needy when your lame ass could be working to take care of your family...ok, what if you ARE working and still can't feed your family? i don't know...what do you all think?

I think as long as people are not making it a life style simply because they are too lazy to change, then whatever.

It only bothers me if people aren't even trying. If your working and need help or trying to better your life and need help absolutely but there are people who have made the welfare system into their career choice.

I agree also being elderly is a legitimate reason for PA

So give me shit for POS autocorrect?

To make it worse, I wasn't even insulting somebody.

If you're working full-time, manage your money better, love within your means, and you won't need PA. It's intended to be short term to aid in finances whole you get back on your feet. Not to be used as a source of income. I was the only worker all winter, mortgage, car payment, utilities, gas, and food all for a family of four, on one salary (and not a large one at that) and a bit of money management, we made it through on no PA. It all comes down to choices.

So how was I being insulting?
