Personally, I don't judge anyone based on the color of their skin; however, I do judge them by their actions. When I drive down the street and see the young punks, black, white or hispanic, walking with their pants sagging and their hats sideways it really ticks me off. Or when I am forced to hear their music thumping in their vehicles before I can even see their vehicle coming down the road, I get really ticked off. It also gets to me when I am on my way to work and I see all the people standing outside the check cashing business around the 1st of every month, knowing that these are people that are fully capable of getting a job and supporting themselves and their families, but instead rely on me and you to pay our taxes to support them. These people are of all races, black, white and hispanic.
I think it is past time for us, the majority, to demand that everyone be held accountable to support themselves. If someone wants to have 8 kids, they should be able to support them without government assistance. The only people that I think should be able to draw government assistance are the ones that are truely unable to help themselves like physically or mentally handicapped people. Unfortunately, we have certain segments of our society that know how to beat the system and get themselves declared incompetent or crazy in order to draw a welfare check. I had dealings with a 28 year old man the other night that admittedely had never worked a day of his life. When asked how he got his money to buy his dope, he responded with his gubment check. He claimed that he was schizophrenic (SP?) and had to take medicine, therefore he was unable to have any sort of real job. The only thing that I could tell was wrong with this guy was that he was as high as a kite. Another thing that gets me is when I go in someones house and they have a $3000 dollar big screen tv, but the 7 kids are sleeping on the floors, some were fortunate enough to have mattresses while others didn't. I questioned the lady, who was pregnant at the time, why she had so many children when it was apparent that she couldn't support them and she responded that she gets more money for each child that she has from the government.
Why do we reward people for having children that they can't support and the majority of these will be just like their parents because the so called parent(s) don't care enough about them to see that they get a good education?
