I got sick again, and it’s such a shame because there are projects I
want need to finish and I’d really like to get my political site up and running. Every day I come across things that make me question American culture. This just blew my mind.
Here’s a quote from the article.
A remarkable conversation happened when a woman called into a radio station and defended her abuse of welfare, and unwillingness to work for her and her children.
She called in to brag about how she gets to sit home all day and she gets to ”visit my friends all day” as well as ”smoke weed” instead of working for a paycheck. The women claimed to be getting about $450 altogether in food stamps.
[She] told the radio host, “Can you really blame us?? The caller, Lucy, goes on to claim that while her husband works part-time, he doesn’t really work that much because “he doesn’t see the need for it.
…[She] goes on to ask an incredibly valid question, “Why should I work?” She also says, “We’re the one’s getting paid, can you really blame us?”
I’m amazed, not that this is occurring, but by the brazen honesty of the caller. And she asks a valid question: why should people struggle, work and pay taxes when you can get everything you want for free?
