 If you are going to be rude  i will skip by your reply but i will answer any "normal" questions. I am doing this post so maybe some of you can understand why some of us are on PA.

We are not leeches or moochers. I am not lazy, or worthless or anything else that you pa hater want to call those of us who are down on our luck.

Please try to keep this post nice and clean.

THANKS!

 What makes you think that people "misunderstand"? 

Did you ever stop to think that maybe we just hate a system where taxpayers are forced to give money to people they don't give a shit about? 

The misundestanding is that we are all lazy and don't work.  That we are leeches and moochers, that we all "LOVE" to be on PA.

I made this post so if anyone want to ask any question i will answer honestly. That is why i am anon, as well.

Yes I agree that taxpayer are force to help people who are on PA that they really don't give a shit about but we don't  ask the taxpayer to  do that, the government does.

 In all honesty, I think you are the one who is misunderstanding.  The point is that we don't care how hard you work or don't work, the fact that you collect  at all is our point of contention.  (unless of course you are there because of accident or illness) 

The point you need to understand is that many of us DON'T CARE what got you there.  You are there and until you are not, you do not deserve respect.

Do you live in a rural area? Why are jobs scarce for your DH?
