Let me guess, you saw them at the grocery store with a cart full of steak and lobster too.
Having grown up in a trailer park among fellow families and adults on welfare or public assistance, most of this feels very familiar. Parents being bad with money usually sets a precedent, and not a good one at that, then it becomes generational since the kids learn from that. Most follow that same path, very few that I grew up being friends with made much of their lives'.
Unfortunately, you have to teach some people how to live.....which is probably what we should be doing more of in schools from a young age.
Elect them president. Burn.
She's got some tig ole biddies
What's social security vs unemployment assistance?
OP let me introduce you to the actual term for the phenomenon you describe:
A great man once said...
"You can't fix stupid."
I wish the same scrutiny was put on CEOs who outsource their workforce, drive their companies to the ground, and then get golden parachutes and tax dodge for their entire lives.
Tell them to sign up for platinum.
I don't know about the "better car" thing. I found from the years I spent working with people on social assistance that they get almost cartoonishly grateful when you hook them up with extra bus tickets. I'm talking about forty year old men.
If you really worked with people on welfare you'd know that they have very slim margin of error to fuck up their budgets, so any addiction like cigerettes, alcohol, weed and opiates is going to have extra negative resonance, and of course perpetuate the cycle.
So the main focus instead of tearing them down and pissing on them should always be on economic literacy, while also attacking the entry points that lead to drug addiction. (imo)
You'd be surprised how fast people get their shit together after they over a paticular hump. A shave, and a months sobriety can be a high-beam halo in some cases.
A picture of a parking lot won't do much for me.
I make a comfortable amount of money and I drive a 1992 jalopy. That doesn't mean that I'm poor, nor does it mean that people who drive newer cars are living beyond their means.
it worked for farmers who didn't set aside an emergency fund
Why dont you just assign every minority a white handler, that way they can live up to your lofty expectations.
Farmers produce for society and are in fact, the bedrock of society.
Please read the below, especially from Dekulakization on down.
Lots of victim shaming in here.
what does that have to do with people being stupid with money? If you save properly you shouldn't need temporary welfare
social security is guaranteed money when you turn 65 you can also get less and start taking it earlier. I think 63. Unemployment is for people who suddenly lose their job and are out of work for a short period of time.
So, in your opinion, why are they stupid with money?
First step to a change is defining the problem.
You brought up farmers as if they are equal to people on welfare that do not produce.
Farmers feed the country and make next to no profit on it due to the costs of running a farm.
Farmers are NEEDED. People that produce nothing and are on welfare do nothing for the country.
Dont bring up piss poor examples if you dont want info showing your example was piss poor.
Separate names with a comma.
