why does everyone act like being on state assistance is a bad thing?
I have been a victim of scrutiny for the later 3 months. I just had a beautiful little one boy 3 months ago, im also a sophomore in college with a 3.45 gpa. HOWEVER i am also on wic, foodstamps, and medicaid. Not welfare though. The father bounced when i got pregnant so I enjoy no other options. However people look at me like i am a burden to taxpayers. And its similar to that is what state assistance is for, for people who need it to utilize it similar to i am. I am hoping after i get my bs degree i can get sour assistance and attain a job. So until then why does everyone act similar to i am a welfare mom sucking the government dry?
Hate to break it to you, but receiving foodstamps is being on welfare. As for your interrogate, I understand where your coming from. When I raised my child, I received assistance while continuing my training and holding full time employment. You and I are the very small percentage that use the system as it was intended for. Alot of people use it as a free ride. And I guess that's where on earth the stereotype comes from. They think because we're receiving assistance, we're just too indolent to go find a job. It's all stereotype. Don't verbs about it. Hold your head high, bring you know that this is temporary. You're one of the few that deserves this assistance.
It is not bad if you have a valid claim. However, government supported welfare fraud is alive and in good health. May God protect the American People and the Free World from the Democrat Party and Barack Hussein Obama. Semper Fi
Because that money is for AIG the bank and Fannie-Mae, not for you.
Toooooo several abuses of the system. "Guilt by Association" Sounds like you are making the best you can and I hope you make it.
I hope that you do well, also. You sound approaching you have made some wise and some unwise decision, and are trying to make the best of them. However, how is it the burden of others to pay for the mistakes of your life? When one isn't forced to retribution for errors or poor judgement, one is more likely to make them. Additionally, when a man is forced to work to support another, he is a slave to the state, which makes his work first and foremost production for the state. The state itself claims first rights to his production. How is that do?
Most people that act like this are the ones that enjoy never had to get Govt. assistance. And I'm going to tell you that associates will say that what you are getting is welfare. Most people will tell you you should hold gotten a degree first, got a job next had kids so you can support them, blah, blah, blah, but reality is things don't always transpire that way. It is basically a stereotype because there are individuals that religiously have children they KNOW they can't care for so they can get assistance and not hold to work. YOU are clearly not one of those people, but people wont know that just by looking at you. I speak, continue get the help as long as you stipulation it, screw what people think, they are not going to help you and do what you have need of to do to take care of your son. Put the father on child support to make sure he pays, do not agree to him go scott free. I understand and I wish I could hold taken my own advice because when I use to get FS, I went through self checkout at the grocery store instead of going to a teller to avoid getting the dirty looks from people. Good luck.
Tina your son will be proud of you for trying to do the best that you can for you both. Hold your head high near dignity and try not to allow people who judge you harshly bother you. Peace, Love, Understanding and Respect, Marilyn
Being on state assistance is not a problem, the ABUSE of state assistance is the problem. If you don't fall into the latter, then I wouldn't verbs about it.
as long as you are trying to better your situation and not looking at it as a long term solution I have no problem with it.
