I know I am going to rant and ramble, but I can't help myself. I am getting fed up.
I drive by the Mystery Mansion every day on my way to and from work. I am constantly amazed with the number of people that are coming and going from that establishment.
What does it say about our society that so many people are requiring services from our Health and Human Services offices. The office in my community is certainly not any different then others across the state or the country.
I asked DW tonight. What do these people ((S)s parents and others) do? They have no job. They now have no children at home. They are not getting any social services from DHHS. All they do is collect whatever funds they can get from the state and spend those funds as they see fit. Certainly not a bad gig if you can get it, but why don't these people have any ambition?
Bio mom and dad have not even called DHHS to check and see how there children are. It seems to me that the kids are just a tool to get them more money. We need to stop paying these idiots to have babies. The more they have, the more money the state decides to give them in welfare, food stamps etc. What these people need is a serious stimulus right in the backside.
We keep bailing them out of their problems as well. they end up in jail and we give them more services to try to help them to become part of and act like the mainstream society, not like a bunch of Wall Street CEOs and Bankers. I am getting sick and tired of the whole thing. It certainly won't keep me from being a foster parent. I am enjoying that too much. But something is going to break at some point and it may be a big part of what we are seeing in this economy.
When I was a kid there was no such thing as "welfare". People were on "assistance" and it meant just that. Assistance until they were able to take care of themselves. Now we have created a whole generation/group of people who think the American Dream is getting free healthcare, food stamps and some spending money as well as housing assistance and they just sit around breeding.
