Generations of welfare parasites

survivalistIf there is one thing that pisses me off more then anything else in this world its a welfare leech. Welfare leechs are parasites that suck the life out of taxpayers. They are too lazy to work, but somehow justify their actions.

I have depression,
I am disabled (but they can do everything else in life just fine),
I have panic attacks,

If you can get out of bed, fix yourself breakfast, walk out to the mail box, get your welfare check, drive to the bank, check your check, go shopping, go home and play on the internet all day, you are NOT disabled.

There is a family that I know who are on their third generation of being welfare parasites.

Think about that for a minute, three generations of receiving benefits from the government. Benefits that people who get up everyday and go to work to pay for.

The least the parasites can do is wash my truck or cut my grass, but then again, if they did that, they could not claim disability.

I get so sick and tired of seeing people buying groceries with their food stamp card, while I have to buy my own groceries.

Culture of entitlement

survivalistAfter Hurricane Katrina made landfall in 2005, I helped out at a refugee center in East Texas for people from New Orleans. We were preforming services for evacuees, such as trying to find them temporary housing, if they needed to see a doctor,,, general stuff like that.

One lady really stands out in my memory. She steps off the transport bus, walks into the reception facility, is handed an application to fill out – ask for her name, address, race,,,, other information so family members can find her – she hands the application back to the person behind the desk (she did not even look at the papers) and ask where she can sign up for welfare and public housing. The lady was not interested in filling out any “extra” paperwork, she just wanted her benefits.

What really got to me was the I am entitled to receive free stuff attitude the lady had. She did not fill out the application until it was handed to her a second time. The lady behind the desk said that she would have to go to the welfare office, and the center did not so that kind of stuff. We were there just to find her temporary housing, and any immediate needs, like if she needs heart medicine and did not have any.
