Do you think Welfare is stupid?

why do poeple like me think welfare is a big waste in 99% of cases?

answer = because myself, mom, and dad came to Seattle from the philippines in 1988 with $1,426 and 2 suitcases each.

parents worked hard for a better life starting out in modest jobs....mom worked at a nursing home changing bed sheets, dad took a valet parking position. they saved/invested/spent money on necessity and not vanity......

fast forward to 1998, parents have a good life, good money, and buy a house on clear lake. give my bro and me a really good life without getting into debt.

fast forward even further to 2006.....they have our house in CL, investment properties all around houston, and are thinking of buying another house back in seattle.....

everytime i go to a gas station and a grown man is peddling for change, i feel a little bad, but really i feel upset that he's let his life deteriorate to this point, i never give change to them because my parents showed me that you make the life you want, don't wait on others to give you the money you think you need.


i left the bottom part for the people who absolutely need welfare, i do think there are some (few and far between) cases, that need gov't help for their families. but i think for the amount of people who are on welfare, 99% are just lazy that feed off the gov't.

whats that saying.....give him corn, feed for a day, show him how to grow corn, feed him forever

some people really need it. But like you said 99 percent of the time people don't need it.


i believe in welfare but only as a stepping stone to get further in life. I think welfare should be waaaaay harder to get and waaaaaay harder to keep. if on it you should show where you have been looking for a job going to school or something. somethign to show that you are working towards a better future. also if a person is on welfare they should not have any kids or they will not recieve it anymore. Also i think one year should be the cut off point unless there are very strict circumstances.

I think the majority of poeple need to get up off their and do something for themselves. I support welfare, but only for a limited time. Everyone needs a little help sometimes, but this is outta control.

I believe in it...just for temporary assistance. i can't stand the people that won't take the steps to move forward in life. I can stand the "feed me" and "the gov't owes ME!" attitude. What me off is seeing someone pay for their groceries with a LoneStar card and their kids are wearing Jordans. Then you see their ride in the lot with chrome rims. WTF!?!

...yea I believe it should be a temporary thing too. Too many people use it as a crutch rather a stepping stone to get out of the situation that they are in. Like ol dude said a minute ago...'give a man an ear of corn, feed him for a day. Give that same man the knowledge to grow it, feed him forever...'

As for the whole Katrina victims... Not every one is using it to their advantages (I hope), but thats some serious bullshit!! Oh..... Plus the welfare.... Those women have kids to KEEP getting welfare... Thats nice that a girl can have , pop a baby out, and walaa... She gets more money. They know how to play the government... I just wish they used their smarts for the better. Thats how I feel. I hate it all.. I don't agree with it... I know its mean, but oh well...

so basically you say yo umake the mistake and therefore you should never be allowed to get back on your feet. so basically you say jsut **** 'em right?? even if they are trying and wanting to have better. forbid something liek that happens to you. (and don't say it won't because noone here can ever say something won't happen to them where they are put into poverty) then you would be singing a diffrent tune.

Props to your family for doing it the right way and F*#ck those lazy a$$es who just want to do nothing and collect. Wellfare system enables people to do nothing, kick em off I say and make them go to work.
