Free Money? What?!

Have you heard about this?
A $200 back-to-school giveaway for needy kids sparked a mad rush for money on the streets of New York on Tuesday.
"It's free money!" said Alecia Rumph, 26, who waited in a Morris Park, Bronx, line 300 people deep for the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for her two kids.
"Thank God for Obama. He's looking out for us."
Thousands of people lined up at banks and check-cashing shops to withdraw the cash that magically appeared on their electronic benefit cards.
Some rushed out because of rumors the money would vanish by the end of the day.
"Rumors, there's always rumors," said Teresa Medina, who waited four hours at a Pay-O-Matic in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, to get $600 for her three teenagers - just in case they were true.
The no-strings-attached money went to families receiving food stamps or welfare.
Every child between 3 and 17 was eligible for $200, which worked out to 813,845 kids across the state - including 498,866 in the city.

That's great! NOT! The last thing we need to be doing during these crazy times is handing out free money to lower income peeps.
Truthfully, if Obama was really "looking out for us," he'd be trying to create more jobs so these parents wouldn't be forced to stand in line like this.
Welfare, is really just an excuse not to find work. Think about it, you have money for things you want/need and you don't even have to go anything with your life. Great, right? Wrong.
Now, I'm fine with these type of people being on welfare:
A) Out of work. BUT, only for a couple of months. Anything over a year is just ridiculous.
B) Legally immigrated (emphasis of legally) and need help getting started. Only with the getting started part.
C)Ill with something that makes it impossible to work. Only for a while though.

I'm not a supporter of welfare by any means. But, those 3 are the only ones I think are acceptable. You have your views, and they probably differ from mine. ;)

Well, off to the gym...
Love, Palin, and Crowder...
