EvilEgg: "Their lounge is dominated by the huge TV"Thirty five inches isn't dominating or huge.
a login name very similar to this one: I think were all missing the more important underlying story here: where the fark does this guy get his hair cut?[img.thesun.co.uk image 620x467]
GAT_00: Oh look, it's this story again.
Flaumig: Think about it. If it were that bad objectively, then children, retired people, and those too sick or infirm to work would be the worst people ever, right? Most people don't feel that way, but show them some folks like this couple and their inner four year old comes out and they start to whinge and cry about how it's just not fair. Life isn't fair, so get used to it you farkin crybabies.
Mean Daddy: s
jso2897: I wonder if there are British people who read the Enquirer or the World net Daily and think it's really about stuff that actually happens in America.
xria: even just a millionaire is probably not 100% safe if they get the wrong illness and their insurance guy wants a bonus this year
clapperton: I work with a Guy that likes to play the system. He has a baby with his batshiat crazy girlfriend (she's 21, its her 3rd kid with her 3rd baby-daddy) . When I say batshiat crazy, I'm talking diagnosed, unmedicated, split personality disorder. One personality even tries to kill him sometimes. Needless to say, she's receiving disability and all sorts of other benefits. So back to him, every January and July he calls in to work at least 2 or 3 times a week because he has to recertify for his handouts so he has to show he doesn't make much money. He even brags about it at work. We all biatch about how much of our paychecks is taken out in taxes, and he brags because he is collecting it.
LiberalConservative: A SOLUTION. Long-term unemployed are required to log a minimum number of hours of community service in order to receive their welfare payments. Ta-da! Suddenly they must work either way, and contribute to society either way. This was done in Australia (blessed Howard by memory) and out came the bleeding heart libtards saying its disgustingly unfair.
violentsalvation: The Sun and the Daily Mail sure report a lot on people like this. They must handsomely compensate the lazy bastards. Either that or they just feel THAT entitled that they are willing to talk about it. Maybe both. I dunno.
Coco LaFemme: ......and we think the welfare system in THIS country is abused. Won't look for a job because it would pay less than what they can suck off the government teat. That's farking pathetic.
Ishkur: Liberals are always afraid that innocent people might be unfairly punished.Conservatives are always afraid that innocent people might be unfairly rewarded.
Wolf892: Seems a solution might be to not grant the dole to individuals who are not physically disabled, or are not mentally incapacitated...If you are physically and mentally able to work, even shat jobs like McDonald's, then get out there and work. Life is suffering, get busy.This would reduce stories like this and perhaps reduce the burden on the dole system...Or perhaps government sponsered homes should be dorm style...just one apartment building with two families per suite, this would ensure that either you are desperate for a home or encourage you to better yourself as soon as possible.
