STORY TIME.
>grabbing milk at the grocery store for my Reeses Puffs.
>get in line behind a woman in her early 20's
>notice she has a lot of freshly done tattoos
>compliment her on them because they look well done
>she pulls out food stamps to pay with
>asks cashier for cigarettes
>also see vodka amongst her food items
>she pulls out her IPHONE to answer a text
>mfw I see another twat abusing the system

I'm really tired of people that don't need help, getting it anyway. If you can afford high quality tattoos, cigarettes, alcohol, and foot the bill for a smartphone, you don't need food stamps or welfare.

so does everyone.

As much as we hate peoples abusing the system,they are actually in minority.

the republican's problem is that they think that anyone not working/not paying tax is just not wanting to work/abusing the system

My family has been below the poverty line my whole life and sadly I've seen a good deal of people on welfare misuse it for alcohol and drugs. While my mom who worked two jobs try and try and get us on state insurance and welfare, and they kept denying her. But we had 3 trashy neighbors, all with atleast 4 kids, who didn't work and sold drugs... and other things to make a living, and they had both welfare and medicare or w.e.

The system is broken, but I also know of quite a few people who were on both and really needed them and worked hard also.
#220 to #217 - cobrafan (09/27/2012) [-]
Yeah, the problem isn't the people who use it how it's supposed to be used, like your family. The problem is the lazy ******* who abuse the system.
#221 to #220 - shadowpanda (09/27/2012) [-]
That's the thing, is we couldn't even get on it, mainly because my mom only had me. More kids = much higher chance of getting it
#222 to #221 - cobrafan (09/27/2012) [-]
yeah, that's another thing that is kinda messed up, when people have a million kids just to get welfare.

The system is there for people who truly need it, and they are included in the 47%, mixed in with people who don't need it.

Both obama and romney are ******** .

I'm not even going to capitalize their names, I hate them so much
#352 to #203 - digitaldavinci (09/27/2012) [-]
Won't capitalize their names?!?
User avatar #350 to #203 - giblets (09/27/2012) [-]
This is correct, however, Obama is much less of a ' ******** than Romney.

why hate obama?

#272 to #262 - anon (09/27/2012) [-]
cause hes a moron. nothing he's done promised or said he will do has come to fruition except the damn health care bill which is a proven fact to shove any country into further debt. Canada, france, the norwegian countries. Every country that has free health care gets taxed out the ass and is still in debt because of it.

And we have the most people are in debt and we're planning to do it. everyone who is so ******* happy about this situation doesn't even realize the ********* that's going to happen

inb4 ********* I'M ANONYMOUS ************* MUWAHAHA
User avatar #279 to #272 - wallnut (09/27/2012) [-]
norwegian countries? i'm pretty sure that it's only Norway, and Norway is so god damn oil-rich that any debt it ever might have had is long gone.
#345 to #279 - anon (09/27/2012) [-]
Norway has a population of 5 million while here we have over 300 million, does it look like we can buy ourselves out with oil money like Norway?

To be fair, a lot of the lack of fulfilled promises comes from Congress being a collective wad of used toilet paper.
User avatar #371 to #272 - admiralen (09/27/2012) [-]

The idea of shared contribution-shared benefit is politically dead in this country. Granted not all of the 47% of people that pay $0 in Federal income tax are lazy good-for-nothings, like retirees or unemployed/under employed looking for work, but a good chunk of those people don't feel it is their duty to contribute at all to the betterment of the nation. It those "rich people" that should pay for everything. That's both childish and selfish. Welcome to Greece, ladies and gentlemen, where everyone that works for the government is intrinsically better than those that actually contribute something to the economy.   
   
My only hope is that those heading into college today, regardless of their major, take a basic business class. There they'll learn about the differences between operations and overhead. Business with too much overhead and not enough operation go out business. There will always be a non-zero quantity of overhead in any business, but if it grows too much the whole enterprise (hence the gif) crumbles.    
   
I hope they understand that in any economy the government is overhead. Yes, some is necessary. We  need cops, firefighters, teachers, and regulators. But the Federal government actively encourages people to take themselves out of productive endeavors and grow economic overhead. It won't take much more to kill a once vibrant economy with the huge, cancerous, malignant tumor that is the welfare state.

Nice post, well thought out. Too bad 95% of the nerds here will insult your mom and thumb you down and call it a good rebuttal.

your mother is a well respected member of her community and is a very nice person, and a green thumb for you

Yeah, that's what I'm expecting. Luckily I came armed with a wide variety of middle finger gifs.
