This has to be read to be believed.  I'd swear that this was a story from The Onion and not CNN:

Amanda Clayton hit it big playing the Michigan Lottery. Like many winners, she used her $1 million prize to buy a new house.

Asked if she had the right to the public assistance money, Clayton answered, "I kind of do. I have no income, and I have bills to pay. I have two houses."

Sad.........though the government pretty much screws the taxpayers over much worse than this young lady.  Of course not defending her or her actions.

I'm actually not terribly surprised by this article.

My reasons for not liking things like welfare or food stamps or basically any kind of extensive government cheese is not because I am unsympathetic or don't want people who are down on their luck to get a little support. It's because in a general sense these things just lower society. It leaves an indelible mark on societal life expectations. Extensive collection of these types of government supports and encourages people to expect such little out of life, not to step up and acheive anything for themselves, be it money or happiness or just general self-governance/self-reliance.

This is why this article doesn't really shock me. It doesn't surprise me that a person who has been dependent on government cheese would struggle to break herself out of the kind of thinking and behavior that such systems perpetuate.

I hate to say it being the non-religious person that I am, but let the churches handle support of the poor like in the old days. At least the person seeking help is more likely to run into somebody that genuinely cares about them getting their life together and not be stuck in a revolving door of government services that not only don't care about whether or not they get their s**t together, but likely want them to remain dependent so that their funding can continue.

End of rant.

Why doesn't she sell one of her houses....especially if she is "struggling". And extra especially if she didn't need a second one. This is bizarre. Question

    BION, Flickie, I'm with you on this one. I grew up in the War on Poverty system, and it's done far more harm than good, in that you have so many professional victims who believe they're owed something.

     Presently, I recieve food card benefits, as I am unemployed. I WANT to work; if I could find a job, they'd get their frickin' card back so fast the edges would be melted.
