Get a job

Posted: November 21, 2012 - 4:01pm

It has come to my attention one day last week while an acquaintance of ours was at the public library, there was a crowd smoking outside. Come to find out, they were giving out free cell phones with 250 minutes to people on welfare. If these people can afford cigarettes at $5 a pack (or are we furnishing them also?), they sure can afford their own cell phones. Why not do what taxpayers have to do and get a job, like I had to do?

Your check should go for housing, utilities then groceries. Get a job or schooling and a car without taxpayers’ help. I am tired of working my rear off so they can smoke, have a cell phone and even a car.

What is wrong with us? Time to stop supporting these people.
