I’ve come across many of them on a daily basis. People that can barely understand basic English or math can tell you the ins and outs of welfare programs like with the confidence and expertise equal to listening to a rocket scientist talk about Orbital State Vectors.
I don’t get out much, but I’ve encountered the same thing. There were some folks in their 20s at a get together acting bored and listless. But when one of them mentioned public assistance, they perked up and jumped in with comments like
“Tell the XYZ - they love it and you will automatically be enrolled in this and that and THEN you can apply for this state program & the county will provide you...”
“They NEVER check! That’s the beauty - it is your word alone.”
I had to leave before I got in a fight. If they put half that much effort into a business, they’d become a huge success - but then, they think they ARE a huge success because they play the government agencies like a computer game...they know every rule, when to apply what, what disability gets you the most cash for the least risk, etc.
This is the ugly side of entitlement programs, the people who perpetually have their hands out for freebes, feel that they are owed, entitled to anything and everything..didn't obozo tell them so, for the vote, of course? The Link Card
crowd on the other hand demand, expect to receive any and all entitlements, freebes they can grab onto. It is a generational way of life for them. And then there are those who are employed, earning an income, but who yet feel that if the government/oboma is giving away something free, to be paid for by the taxpayers, why shouldn't they take advantage and make a grab for it also. Years ago, you would not take assistance from the government unless you were in dire straits...today, everybody’s doing it, so why not?!
The freebe merry-go-round must be overhauled after obozo is kicked out of OUR White House. Rules and regulations have to be put in place by a govt. who will hold people to be accountable and follow the rules. And we must once again instil the moral value of WORKING by the sweat of OUR brow for what WE want, in order to achieve OUR goals.
Hope to see this in my lifetime again..for the sake of the future of our country.
