What are you going to do next?
What is the next thing on your agenda?
The government and states are going to stop funding social and public welfare programs, so whats your plan?
See pretty soon the people who are depending on food stamps, section 8, childcare assistance, and any social welfare program are going to be s.o.l. (shit outta luck) because the people in the middle class are tired of paying for the poor to live better than they do!
The generations of people who have lived in public housing projects as long as they can remember back in their memory are disappearing. But not because the people have decided to finally pull themselves up from the bottom, instead it is because the cities are recognizing there are opportunities for profit in the areas which these housing projects are occupying space. Whether is the gentrification efforts and example of say Brooklyn and Harlem, or the fact the projects are down town and stifle income that could be coming from high-end buyers like in Home town of Louisville, Ky. The housing projects are coming down! When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans they kicked people out the projects that hadn’t even been hit by the storm or flooding, and some 8 years later they are still empty.
Every year states do more cutting to social welfare projects, and quality of life projects are being underfunded The government has waged a war on any assistance for any of the programs and it is not just the Tea Party candidates that support the non-funding it is the traditional GOP candidates, as well as a small majority of Democratic politicians that have mixed districts that are tired of their tax dollars going to the poor and lower-income communities and never returning to their own districts. The time of the person getting on public assistance and staying there in that same financial state is over!
See I know I sound like the boy who cried wolf, but I am seeing it more and more everyday. From a perspective of a man and father who pays his own bills, taxes and buys my own groceries and pay my own rent. Also the people I associate with are doing the same as well. We are getting pissed off, and tired of supporting the people who choose not to work hard and limit themselves to just enough productivity so things don’t get hard on them.
We are tired of the fact we go to the mall and see them there, buying all the Jordan’s, buying all the Coach, and Dooney bags. They wear the finest clothing articles they can, because they have no idea that they are just walking “I am on welfare bill boards” because their children are bad as hell and unkempt even though they have on name brands they aren’t even taking care of. The looks on their faces as they pass the Gap Store, and Banana Republic store because their clothes are too tight, and make them look like they are trying to be like white people.They congregate in the food court to eat California Pizza Company, and Panera, while their children scope and go around collecting bourbon chicken from the Chinese people and free chicken samples from Chik-Fil-A. When it is all said and done they all pile into a pretty nice looking car and drive back to the projects, or the rent adjusted apartment or housing areas they live in. And of course there are those who still sit at the bus stop with all their children to catch the bus with Macy’s, Dillard’s,Finish Line,and Footlocker bags.
Not to mention when we the hard-working tax paying citizens, go to the grocery store we are tired of seeing the people there with 2 and 3 carts full of food purchasing everything we would like to eat but can’t even afford to buy. Their baskets are filled at will, with no real thought of price. The grocery isn’t really making more than they previous did, because the food manufacturer is reaping the benefits, because they just inflate their prices. The food stamp recipient is giving the store and the manufacturer the bulk of their profits, and since food stamps are free from the government the recipients are complaining about having to spend a little more than they did the last week. So basically what we have is a situation where the stores and he food manufacturer have a contract with the government.
Now when it comes to any of the programs that are offered by the states such as child care assistance, the states just simply can’t afford it! Period! That is when they have to come to the tax payer hat in hand and we are saying NO! Because we have to pay full price for day care, and schooling. The rates are so absorbent that it cost more than some people’s mortgages and car payments for the month! Which are fostered because the government has been offering so much assistance, the facilities are guaranteed payment so they can charge what ever they feel! So there you go another situation where the private business is depending on the government to basically pay its bills. In doing so it hurts the regular everyday American just trying to make it!
Now I know what I am saying hear sounds harsh and insensitive, and I want it to! I have been on public assistance in my life time off and on, as a child and even messed with some women who schemed it as an adult. The major reason I am not on it now though is because of PRIDE! I was raised with it, my mother only used public assistance when it had gotten so bad we needed too, and once our rough patch was over she got off it. She told the truth about her wages, and how much she and my father was making, it was a sense of pride that we didn’t have to be on food stamps and public housing. Even though life was hard and I didn’t have much or anything I may have wanted, I always knew I was going to have what I needed. She depended on God and herself, not even my father too much just to make sure there were no disappointments. “Pull yourself up, by your bootstraps!” & “Only person you can depend on is you!” Are 2 of here favorite sayings! All though life was not perfect, we were never dirty, beaten, or battered! With that said yes you might have on some thrift store clothes, shoes from the Salvation Army store, and a coat from the DAV (Disabled Veterans Store)store, It was going to be clean, and so was you!
That is what is missing from life now, that need to be proud of who you are and the sense of supporting yourself. So what you may have to eat hot dogs and pork and beans, or you may have to pass on the lunch with friends, because you just aint got it, but at least you know your not begging, or being taken care of by everybody else. To settle for welfare and just stay stuck is pathetic and immature! Yes, I know you say “well I am going to school!” but whats next? Your schooling should be over in a max of 4 years, now you gonna get a job, you ain’t worked in 4 years, plus if you in school and not working why do you need so much day care and food stamps? Be responsible stop having all these children by these men who can’t and/or aren’t going to help you raise them! Doesn’t the child that is being born deserve at least that much?
In closing all I am saying is pretty soon the free ride is going to come to an end at the station because there is no way America can continue this way. The next civil war is going to be a war of class, not race. The government is going to side with those that bring the most to the table, not the people who are always sitting there eating off it!
