I mean, we're getting into the tax season.
There is a whole parasitic tax prep business model, that thrives off low income people and their tax refunds.
Those popular tax prep businesses, they nearly completely derive their income from doing taxes for people who get EITC.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Being very conservative has nothing to do with taking welfare. For instance I knew a single mother who was just divorced due to the husband cheating on her. She had to raise two children on her own. She needed 18 months on welfare to get re-trained and day care assistance so she could get re-trained. She is very conservative in her beliefs, but her children come first. Today she is a successful and productive member of society without welfare.
I really feel bad for you that you go through life with such bitterness, hatred, and utter contempt for people. For me it would be a shallow, meaningless existance. My hope is that you change to realize life is not this way but I am not holding my breath. Instead I will enjoy my life with my wife and daughter every chance I get.
Just dropping by to clear up some misconceptions in this thread about food-stamps and welfare: === All states now use something that looks like a debit card for food stamps - this was implemented at the federal level to cut costs. The limits on what people can buy with the cards are the same as they were for the paper stamps. Certain high dollar foods (like caviar) are not allowed nor are prepared foods allowed (exceptions for some grocery store deli-type food because some elderly and disabled receipts cannot prepare the food - things like pre-roasted chicken, fried chicken, roasted meats, cooked veggies and pasta/potato salad). FS cards cannot be used at restaurants. They cannot be used to buy personal toiletries , cleaning supplies, any alcoholic beverage or any tobacco product. == All states also use a something like a debit card for granting welfare benefits - also implemented at the federal level to save on administrative costs. The use of the cards has not been restricted to specific items - so they work at liquor stores, casinos and strip clubs. They can be used at banks to withdraw cash (so the House law will do little to change how welfare recipients use their benefits) . == Some states have opted to put both welfare and FS benefits on a single card to save money. When this is done, only the amount of the welfare benefit can be used on non-food items or withdrawn as cash. Once that dollar amount is used, the card will only work for food purchases.

I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
"Half full or half empty doesn't matter. What matters is, you've only got half a glass...so what are you going to do about it?" - Me
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
