hasty ambush: New York: Welfare $$ Used at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores

$69 million in California welfare money spent in Vegas and Disneyland


So farking what? At least it goes back into the American economy. Also, you do realize that in many urban areas, the only grocery stores in town are liquor stores?

Have you ever looked at "hot" british chicks before?

Same problem in the USA....MILLIONS of welfare bums would rather sit on their butts,
than do WORK. So, the few of us who have jobs, are supporting those who WON'T work.

I like how they save the best part for last
A staggering 29 million citizens of both countries will be entitled to flock here regardless.

DIAF Murdoch. People are entitled to move and live freely.


But not on the backs of others.

$15,000... isn't that what a part time Starbucks barista makes?


Not $15,000. £15,000. It's around $30,000, depending on exchange (haven't looked lately)

On the flip side, there are plenty of people on welfare who would LIKE to work. I was once one of them. I can appreciate the welfare system, but I get irked when I hear of people milking it like this. That's not what it's meant for. In Maine, welfare is known as "TANF." The "t" is for "temporary."

If I had my druthers, I'd re-direct social moneys towards education and programs that assist people to get off of welfare. I, however, suspect that this would cost MORE than just giving people a grand or so every month. :/

Agreed, I was wondering if FARK was ever going to get a "Troll" tag but I suppose it's pretty much a given here, eh?

Oh, uh me too. Been on welfare since 2 years before I was born. I live in a huge mansion with an elevator for my many cars. Tax payer money has been good to me. Not sure why more people don't do this.

cig-mkr: 14,500 pounds equates to about $23,001.35 in US dollars.
Nope, not enough to live on....Better then Walmart pay, but still not enough.


That's 23K with no rent, free child care, free utilities, and coupons for part of her groceries. Part time work of you can call 16 hours/week work. It would make you laugh if the US weren't heading for the same situation. Yeah, Republicans buy votes wholesale, at least some people get to work for what doesn't get raked off the top. Democrats buy their votes retail and cut out the middle man. Just handing out free stuff in return for votes from people the politicians are terrified of. Once they have bought a solid 51% there is no going back even if they run out of other people's money. No politician can manage the economy for anyone's benefit but his own.

LOLWUT??! Why is there a picture of a harried family of six that I'm supposed to apparently feel sorry for how hard life is on them... making $650k per year.

You are supposed to feel sorry for them because the amount more they will pay this year is as much as the woman in this article gets so she can live the high life with her crotchfruit.  And that could be you some day.

KwameKilstrawberry: hasty ambush: New York: Welfare $$ Used at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores

$69 million in California welfare money spent in Vegas and Disneyland

So farking what? At least it goes back into the American economy. Also, you do realize that in many urban areas, the only grocery stores in town are liquor stores?


Under that theory, with all that money" going back into the economy", areas with a high percentage of the population on welfare should be economic boom towns-you know like Detroit. If the liberal theory about Food Stamps contributing so much to the economy were true those neighborhoods with a lot people on food stamps would be thriving economic centers.

Your liquor store defense does not hold water when it turns out California welfare recipients are making trips to Vegas but somehow cannot make it to a real grocery store.

my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: ///And how can someone who legitimately speaks 6 languages not find a job somewhere? Unless she speaks pig-latin and obscure Lithuanian dialects spoken by the mute tribes of the northern hinterlands.


there is surprisingly little work which rewards you just for blabbing your mouth... at least, which would reward you above and beyond what you could get for blabbing in just one language... it is an advantage though... for people who are inclined to capitalize on advantages, which she clearly is not...

I don't understand this. Saint Krugman and 90% of fark tell me that Britain is an example of the failure of austerity.

I looked at the number cited in California's study - they say 10.8 billion went into these welfare payments, and 69 million got misused. Or to make it less vague.

1080 million in, 69 million misused. Or about a 6% misuse rate. Yeah, it's a problem, but I wouldn't exactly say "DOOM OF THE SYSTEM".
