    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Welfare Recipients Take out Cash at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores and X-rated Shops.

    Terun, if you read closely I specifically stated that I am on a smart phone not a computer and my texting wpm and accuracy are severly lacking at the moment.

    I
    We do have horrible credit steming from everything from apartments we've abandoned to a reposessed car I don't have any business ideas that aren't already monopolized or at the very least graciously covered by multiple vusinesses already. I'm also very noncompetetive. As for authorship, I have been working on a book, but I've torn it up at least a dozen times already. I don't think childrens books would be an acceptable genre for my dark mind to get into... Unless, of course, its halloween.

    All-in-all if I could somehow visualize a viable business scenario and come up with the resources to kickstart it, get a bit of marketing in etc... Therr isn't a very good chance of success in this economy. I've worked for Medical practices and small business gas stations that have declared bankruptcy. I ts not an excuse so much as a reasonable fear. I'm hesitant to move forward because my kids aren't starving, or homeless, or without adequate medical care. It's also that they are young. 5, 3, and 1 year old. That makes it near impossible for voth of us to work and I couldn't see running a business when working two seperate fulltime jobs is trying.

    If I suddenly have an amazing business idea, shoot my credit up from 500, oor get childcare that wouldn't kill $900 of income per month it might be a possibility. And my husband speaks Spanish, has a hard time grasping written English, and has spent his entire life in front of the latest gaming console.

    Well that might be part of your problem.

    Look, I'm no councilor, but it seems to me that most if not all of your problems are self realized.

    You should tell your husband to try to be game tester since he enjoys playing games so much. At least that way he will get paid for it and better yet be part of the process. Though he will need to learn english for that.

    Was there any indication whether these people voted Democrat or Republican in the last election?

    That might prove to be an interesting finding.

    (Though I think we already have a good idea.)

    I never said he was good at video games and he speaks English he's just not very good with the written language. Being a game tester is actually pretty difficult to get into. What prepubescence doesn't dream of getting paid for playing games all day? And I know that my husband is probably 50% of what has held me back but I value strong family ties for my kids sake. Not to mention that aside from him I am utterly alone i the world. No friends or family to speak of.

    Social Security checks are also cut the first of the month - and many government jobs pay monthly as well. Dividend checks and bond interest are often monthly occurrences, too. You can't pin all the extra economic activity at the first of the month on welfare recipients.

    None of those with their panties in a wad seem concerned as to how the monitors came by the information... Do they really believe that it's only the poor whose transactions are overseen?
