The above two posts sound like people for which this program was designed for. It is a shame that the system is designed to help only after you fall off the cliff, not before. So many people in this country are right on the edge just waiting for the event that will finish them off, I could be wiped-out with one major medical problem. It is hard not to become cynical, I think the above article used poor examples. For those interested, go to and, well, you'll figure out what to do with it.

Why not spend the money on teaching them that blowing out kids one after another when you are poor is not the way to get out of the projects? I noticed that one of these people has a fifteen year old with a three month old of her own. I feel sorry for these people but if I see someone hitting themselves in the head with a hammer, I am not going to reward them with a better hammer. The cycle of ignorance needs to be broken and rewarding people for bad behavior as well; some have figured out that kids equal dollars. "It (the house) should have plenty of windows, lots of space, a backyard and front yard." and she "expects God to deliver." He might deliver but he will send the bill to me and every other person that pays for this. There are a lot of people that play by the rules, work hard and have fallen on hard times but for each one of them there are hundreds that simply have learned to work the system.

I saw an article today that stated over half of American High School students today do not know how to operate a can opener and stare blankly at an ice tray. If/when society crumbles, I will be a god!

I know how to operate both!

The Lee web page says: " Americas most energizing CHRISTIAN university." LOL

Do it in the name of heaven, you'll be justified in the end.

I have seen how some of these people live, my work took me into the deepest, darkest places and some of them are in very bad shape indeed. But a awful lot of them drive better cars than I have, have cell phones, HBO, big screen televisions and money for drugs and still blowing out kids. It's very hard not to become cynical when you read an article like this and know that you have played by the rules, worked hard and are borderline broke and yet still paying for this.

I can think of a more colorful metaphor to describe kids today. Even if you take into consideration the normal generation gap, this lot is in trouble. All an enemy needs to do is shut down the power grid and they could walk right in and take over. I own a car but still know how to walk.

I made far less than that and was going to school at the same time and I was able to find a place to live; did not need the government to hold my hand. A lot of people are in a bit of a rough patch but this is ludicrous.

I doubt if many people today even know who these characters are. Hey, anyone here remember the name of the horse?

I'm more worried about cell phones in cars than guns. I have never had a gun pulled on me but have been hit twice by people talking on cell phones and seen multiple accidents involving other people, one deadly. I wonder how much longer before you are required to have a permit and carry additional insurance to own a cell phone?

A government of the money, by the money, for the money.
