    Welfare Recipients Freak Out When They’re Told They Have To Work For It

    http://http://rightwingnews.com/top-news/welfare-recipients-freak-theyre-told-work/

    *GASP* Imagine that! You might have to work for something! You know, kinda like the rest of us. Thousands of childless, able-bodied adults in Maine just learned that they are going to have to work in order to receive their food stamps, and they aren’t happy about it.

    There are those of us who work several jobs and still struggle every month to make ends meet because some of the money taken out of our paycheck for “taxes” goes to “help” people like this, who simply don’t want to work. It’s much easier to sit on the couch, watch Dr. Phil reruns, and collect money that other people work for, but we can’t all live that way. Thank you, Governor LePage, for seeing an issue and confronting it head-on.
    Work or starve, sound good to me.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

    So what do you do when there's no jobs or other opportunities or people just won't hire you?
    She cries, children often do
    When they're cold, and hungry too,
    Come closer, look deeply in her eyes
    So delicate, quite unlike her smile

    Life clinging backwards,
    In the fall of dread confusion,
    Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips,
    All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation,
    Far more sinister than the price of doubt,

    Yet you remain,
    Still you remain,

    And she says:
    Pray for daylight,
    Pray for morning,
    Pray for an end to our deception,

    I still think that they all should be able to pass a drug test before getting welfare.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    All these people have to do is volunteer 20 hrs a week or enroll in a job training program. Remember these are people that have no dependent children and are between the ages of 18-50, if nothing more, they could join the military for a couple of years get some training. That would get them off the dole completely and they'd have a job with paid benefits.

    Does anyone remember the 1973 CETA program? It was supposed to provide jobs and training to people on welfare. The people on the program were furious. They called themselves modern day slaves. The program failed.

    I worked with CETA workers back in the day. Their primary goal was to sabotage any job they had.

    Create daycare centers for mothers who can find jobs. Let the working mothers pay a stipend for the day care and use that to offset welfare payments to the day care workers

    You see, this is something I just can't wrap my head around. You're pro-life and want to see babies born.

    But, with you, and others like you, when people become adults it's either work or be left out in the cold to die.

    Sorry but this is something I just can't accept, and never will.

    This is also something of a faulty argument. Because the most common reason I hear for wanting babies to be born is that they can become productive members of society.

    But somehow they lose that value when they become productive members of society.

    This is contradictory to me.

    There were 5.0 million job openings on the last business day of November, 2014, little changed from 4.8 million in October the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported.

    EVERY MONTH,,,,,,,,,there are more than 4.5 million jobs ADVERTISED in the USA. And maybe that many MORE that are not advertised in newspapers.

    If I wanted, or needed to work, I could find a job and START tomorrow. It might be a shit job, but it would have the respect of A job.
