A person I was talking to said they deserve the same rights to buy the same food as everyone else. I don't believe that for a minute. I believe if you are given food stamps, link cards etc you dont have the same rights as I or anyone else who has a job and spends their money that they earned as they see fit.. Im not saying they dont deserve to eat, but definitly it should be restricted as to the food they can buy.

Any thoughts out there?

Im standing there in disbelief, but knowing better how screwed up Illinois is. I pay for my item and what does she get into to? AN Escalade on 22" with her boyfriend? driving with new applied for plates on the back.

Now before I blow a gasket, It would be nice to see RESTRICTIONS placed on what kind of food you can buy with those cards. I dunno, generic only, hamburger not steak or t-bones, select fish...you know stupid stuff so its no so friggen abused.......

Oh well back to work I go....
You should have gotten her plate number. If she owns an asset like that she is not entitled to welfare. If she doesn't it isn't a crime to get a ride to the grocery store in a Cadillac.

Tell me, do you get all worked up over white collar criminals who screw their shareholders out of their life savings? I'll see your million welfare chislers with my one Enron.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Yes they both piss me off. Exception is I dont see the corporates screwing me everyday in my face. But I would love to see all of them spend long cold nights in a jail cell. Its too bad that last fuck died before all his assets were taken from him and before he served a day in jail.

And to see our own hometown crook George Ryan out on bond is getting under my skin too!! At least for now his 198k/yr pension is gone!! The criminal seems to be a both ends of the spectrum in greater numbers. A ton who are at the top and bottom while us in the middle routinely get screwed.

I would suggest some volunteer work at a local soup kitchen. Perhaps you would have more compassion for these people if you had to look them in the face.

Compassion for those who abuse the system. No thanks. I do plenty of charity work for those who deserve it. And I do look them in the face. Those who truely need it, Im fine with that. If you read what I wrote, its those that take advantage and play it to their wanton needs. Its far easier for alot of those who have free housing, free food etc to never to have to aspire to work a single day in their lives because everything is owed to them by the big bad ol government.

Sorry FTL, I only feel sorry for those who need the assistance to get back to where they were or trying to get off the system they were raised on and those who can not help themselves be it through mental illness, mentally handicapped and the like.
