If it hadn't been for that horse, those kids never would've spent that year on welfare.

Here's the story of a slutty lady
who was bringing up a dozen boys and girls
all of them had hair of red, like their mother.
the youngest one's a horse.

Makes sense. She obviously has trouble keeping her legs closed, so riding a horse around should be a natural fit.

One, that horse is dressed like a hobbit. Two, what's the matter with horse people? On the scale of people who like their animals way too much, there are crazy cat ladies on one end, and way, way, way down in the deep end are horse people. If I walked into a room and there was a group of furries on one side - in full costume - and horse people on the other, I'd think long and hard about walking to the furry side before I immediately turned around and left the room.

Sometimes a simple misunderstanding can lead to bigger issues;

"Look, miss, you owe a lot of money and I expect you to pony up the dough"

Nobody here is getting their information straight from the horses mouth, instead of giving this mare the benefit of the doubt you chauvinists are riding roughshod over this lady just because she's champing at the bit to go hell for leather with a big strong stallion. Every one of you needs to use some good old horse sense and  trot along.

glassa: Citrate1007: People on welfare tend to make poor financial decisions.....shocking!

But...but...but, the liberals don't understand WHYYYY the rich keep getting richer!!!

You're answer makes too much sense so they'll ignore it.

Woman in the article is Obama's wet dream.


In fact, poor communities have their own, almost entirely off-the-books economies and people learn very quickly to make smart, shrewd decisions to survive.  If we were suddenly thrown into that world, we would flounder (unless of course you're some Randian superman who was born with supersmarts and would always rise to the very top because you're so very very clever).  Drug fiends and alcoholics don't make very good decisions, but that's true whether you're filthy rich (*cough* Texas Rangers *cough*) or very poor.  Assuming that poor=stupid and rich=smart is pretty facile.

It's easy to believe troll headlines from the likes of the Telegraph and assume that everyone who has ever received a nickel of money is nothing but a lazy, sleazy scammer stealing your money.  Now please tell me how the media leads sheeple to believe whatever they want.

One other thing, I hadn't heard that Obama was pushing to give horses to poor families.  Do you have any citations on that?
