I also worked 16-18 hour days, 3 days a week and every weekend and attended college classes the other two days. I never got welfare and the one time I applied for food stamps they told me to qualify I would have to sell my 1964 volkswagon (this was in the late 80s) because it was an asset. When I asked them how I was going to get to work if I sold my car, they looked at me like I was crazy.
So...it is a choice, they can get off their ass and get an education. or they can NOT have 3 kids by the time they are 19. there are plenty of programs available to anyone who has the desire to apply themselves that will provide training or an education. If you are able bodied and not a drug addict or a criminal, join the military for 4 years and Uncle Sam will pay for your college.
If I can do it, anyone can do it. Unless, of course...I am just better than they are.

I answered but it's a silly poll. I see no reason why earning 1kk$ would be reprehensible and only by the inclusion of the word "intentionally" can you consider it to be reprehensible to be on welfare. What is reprehensible is that there are people who have no choice but to live on welfare. But that is the situation that they are in that is reprehensible, not themselves or their actions.

Living off welfare on purpose unless that million was made by enslaving children or something.
