When you live off the fu*kin system...absolutely!

When you're in that situation and you're only "surviving" off the American working-class tax dollars through public a.ssistance then you should be forced to do what you are told and buy what you are allowed to. If you want expensive sh*t then get off the system, and go buy it. By having expensive things and being on welfare, it shows that you clearly don't need it. My tax dollars don't need to pay for perfectly capable peoples lifestyle because the mother is an irresponsible crackhead wh0ore that gets knocked up by other random unemployed "disabled" crackheads, or better yet an "unknown."

I work for my money and pay my taxes so I should be able to buy whatever the fu*k I want, if you receive public a.ssistance it should be going towards NECESSITIES and documented FAR MORE closely...not top of the line sh*t either. You are supposedly IN NEED. If your rent is being paid for, you get food stamps, cash a.ssistance, utilities paid for, and medical coverage then you are OWNED by the government. The problem is that there's so many scams around all these systems and people literally breed generations that live off this, and that's what it has turned into, a way of life. If you need it then that's fine, but nobody should be given decades of live for free passes.

Sad part is that we haven't even scratched the surface, seeing how out of hand this is all going to get with many more girls getting pregnant at a far younger age. Add to that the amount of refugees we have been bringing into the Country, then combine it with the current problems, and the welfare system has no positive future.

Then again who the fu*k is going to work for minimum wage when they can live off the system that pays better and has better benefits than an average middle-class job?
this is y this country has went to sh*t.cause u people are idiots.that ipad might cost 400$ max,this war in tha mid east has cost 400 bill.there are damn near 200 millionaires on congress,yet yall mad as fu*k a poor family has somethin nice.which do u think gets a bigger piece of your taxes.tha poor or tha rich?wake tha fu*k up stooge

People aren't mad at the fact that a black kid has a nice thing. They're mad at what would appear to be the abuse of the system.

If you live in government funded housing, or you're on welfare maybe you shouldn't have an iPad.

Even a used first generation basic iPad runs for about $250. People see that kid, and of course the first thing they gon think is

"Wait, you're getting my tax dollars because you claim you can't afford the cost of living, but you can afford to buy a little kid an iPad?"

That $250 could have gone toward

- the groceries (which you claim you can't afford)
- Rent (which you claim you need help paying)
- A savings account to help you one day be able to get out of the hood
- clothing for the kid (since you're supposedly poor)

But an iPad though? That's just insulting to n*ggas going to work everyday and paying taxes. I can see why they mad.

Ya'll in here acting like its just a random black kid and people are mad because he black and has nice things. NO. They mad because his family is on government a.ssistance (my taxes), and they buying bullsh*t they don't need with it.

Nothing "Right Wing" about me. If you've seen me post in this section before you know I'm extremely liberal in my views on most things.

I just don't believe in people abusing the system. Sick and tired of walking out of my crib and having somebody walk up to me with their EBT card trying to sell it to me for the low so they can go buy some bullsh*t.

Sick of seeing people on welfare but their baby got every single pair of Jordans.

Like I said in an earlier post. I work for a bank, we see how people live first hand. Sick of seeing people getting Unemployment checks and the next transaction on their account is a trip to the sneaker store to cop a $250 pair of Foamposites.

Let's stop pretending like this is some racial thing and not about people being fed up with lazy people abusing the system all the time.

no one is saying abuse is a good thing, but if we are gonna get real with this stuff then lets do that, and lets start with the real problems. The corporate welfare, which is 1000x more draining and hurtful to our economy. And unemployment is yours, its not welfare, you can do w/e the fu*k you want with it. if thats buying Jordans, than thats your prerogative.

When you factor in the fact that they get free food, free medical care, free clothes, free education for their children and most people on welfare spawn like fu*kin rabbits, you are damned right that comes out to more than what an average middle class person makes because they have no deficit. 90% of my middle class income goes towards paying for me to have all the things these people get for free. They get their food for free. I pay 200$ a week. They pay no rent. My mortgage is $800 a month. They get to send their kids to head start for free. I'd pay hundreds of dollars a month for it. When its time to go to real school again their kids go for free while I have to pay ridiculously high school taxes, Heath Insurance costs thousands a year and I still have a $20 co-pay and a $800 deductible, they go for free and get their meds for free. That's not to mention the 70 grand in student loans I'm paying back while they get grants and a.ssistance out the a.ss. He's not an idiot, you are delusional and have no idea how much it costs to live when you're not taking a free ride.

I'm delusional? You're a fu*king idiot, do you know how much money in benefits you get for food stamps? Its something like $30 a week. And since when did poor people get free medicine? And since when is student loans something you have to pay for but poor people don't? Also, you have a mortgage, of course you're gonna pay more, you're paying off something you're gonna own. The only delusional one here is you. And I've been on my own since I was 19, I know exactly how much it costs to live on my own.

This story and entire thread is crazy. Why are people jumping to conclusions on something they don't know about? All they see is a black kid with a nice item sitting in what appears to be a poor neighborhood. I remember when I got the original Playstation for Christmas from my grandparents. I lived in the projects and they made a lot of money and lived in a nice neighborhood. But if someone were to come in and see me playing my Playstation they're going to a.ssume it's wrong. WTF?! Not saying that's the case here, but the notion that poor people should have nothing but food, water, and a roof is fu*ked up. And those of you defending this story need to spend a month in the shoes I spent 18 years in before you fu*kin judge someone and get prejudice about their circumstances. I fu*kin hate you holier than thou, racist, socialist f*ggots who have those predetermined idea of what someone should be doing based on what type of money they make. What if that iPad was bought with a life savings of $5 a month? Highly unlikely, but who the fu*k are you to judge? I had nice sh*t when I lived in the projects and it wasn't because we were taking advantage of the system. Even without the "unnecessary" things we got each year we would have still been considered in poverty and eligible for a.ssistance. Shows how much you dumbfu*ks know about the system: try and tweak that before you judge the people it's granted to. I fu*kin hate the internet because it shows me just how many of you close-minded, ignorant, hateful fu*ks are out there. PS: if it weren't for having my computer while I was living in the projects I wouldn't be living in the suburbs and making a nice living now. So fu*k you, fu*k your system, fu*k your beliefs, and fu*k your life. f*ggots. I'm mad. fu*k you.

Okay so when the unemployment runs its course and n*ggas aint saved nothing because they were too caught up in buying nonsense, what do you think the next step is? It's government a.ssistance. Thats how they get caught up in the cycle, that we all have to pay for..

Its more about mentality that has to shift among poor people. Poor people make bad financial decision (mostly while trying to keep up with the Joneses) and when somebody says something about it, now its made out to be that "nobody wants poor people to have anything", when that's not the case.

Duck tales.

What kind of house and where is it that your mortgage is only $800? You must live in the middle of nowhere or have a shack.

News flash you already pay high school taxes, that doesn't just start when you have kids of age.

You a fool if you don't think poor people have to get student loans for college, grants come with grades.

You should get a better job, your insurance plan sucks.

You pay $800 a month for food? You must be a fat boy, try Costco. Welfare don't even give out $800 a month in food stamps.

You think welfare is better than your minimum wage bank attendant job, sucks to be you, I see why you mad.

Unemployment isn't meant to be saved, its meant to be spent. Usually on things essential to your survival but spent nonetheless, especially cause spending helps the economy, which is prob why Obama wanted unemployment extension. And yes some people make poor financial decisions, but the effect of that is far less than the aforementioned corporate welfare and fraud. I'm all for reform, but lets be real here, the biggest most glaring problems come from the corporations living off the gov tit. More so than any poor kid whose mom gets gov a.ssistance.
