I’ve been told iPhones (monthly bill), iPads, computers (monthly internet bill), etc are a necessities because you can’t apply for jobs, read the news, educate yourself, etc and etc. Well you can apply for jobs in person, buy a newspaper, go to the library, etc and etc. You can survive without these things. Unless this is the year 3113, am I missing something? There are needs and then there are wants. For example technology is a want while food is a need. I don’t care about your wants. I’ll help you with your needs. I don’t give a shit if that offends you.
Fuck corporate bailouts but on the same token fuck welfare fraud and/or lazy people that abuse the system just as much. Greed is greed regardless of what class. But maybe it shouldn’t stop there? There is more we are not considering when it comes to entitlements (wants) over necessities (needs). Since my original welfare post that has over 55,000 reblogs I’ve read people’s victim stories and what it basically comes down to is this….
How about when two people meet and fall in love. Eventually they want to get married but they can’t afford a big lavish wedding. They often settle for the justice of the peace. The bride always wanted a wedding she’d always remember. He can’t afford a ring but no woman should go without a diamond ring. Other couples have nice weddings so why can’t these two? Tax payers should make sure a married couple has their luxurious wedding with dolphins kissing ice sculptures and chocolate waterfalls. No? Well you’re not romantic!
If the couple have three kids even though one was even too much, they’ll need a house. Apartments do not generally make living comfortable with a family that size. Since the wife doesn’t work and the husband don’t make that much, welfare will have to pay for it. Since they can’t afford the necessities and already collect for utility assistance, tax payers will also have to pay their property taxes and up keep. If they need electrical, plumbing or the roof, etc done the tax payers get the bill. No you say? Well you’re just a privileged fuck!
Next is a car because they need to get around. Everyone else has a car so why not them? Public transportation is so 20th century anyway. So tax payers will have to pay for their free cars. It has to be reliable and kid safe. It has to be brand new with the same features everyone else gets. Power windows, onstar, 4wd, etc. Since they can’t afford the insurance, it will also have to be part of welfare. Since tires, inspections, replacement parts, etc are also expensive they’d expect that to be part of welfare as well. No?! Well you’re an asshole!
When their children hear about other families and their vacations to Disney World it will crush them. How can you deprive a child of that experience? Can’t you imagine their tears? Their parents could not possibly afford paying for a family of 5 with the cost of airfare, hotel and spending money to a place like Disney World. So tax payers will have to fund their vacations because other families go on vacations. It’s only fair, right? Don’t you want little Susie to get her photo taken with Minnie Mouse in front Cinderella’s castle? No!? You’re a dick!
And if you’re going to fund family vacations you can at least fund their pets. Everything from their food to their veterinarian visits. Hey if their friends have pets then it’s only fair they have a pet as well. What if little Timmy gets stuck in a well and there is no Lassie to go get help? Eddie Munster turned out fine with his pet Spot. If the Brady kids didn’t have Tiger their childhood would have been sad. You don’t want to stop a child from having a puppy or kitten, do you? That’s just unthinkable. It’s horrendous. I don’t want to think about it.
Then you have to think about social entertainment for the adults. Do you expect them to be coup inside every weekend when John’s friend takes his wife out once a weekend for their annual dinner, dancing and a movie. That’s unfair because John wants to treat his wife. And his wife Cindy wants to have a girls night out. You think she likes dealing with her kids, and husband all the time? She needs her downtime. Tax payers should fund an allowance for social activities. What you’re against this to? What’s wrong with you! Fuck you OP!
Now I could continue with four or five more examples of entitlements (wants) over necessities (needs) but I think you should have the point by now. At what point is it acceptable for society to say no more when it comes to subsidizes? Funding education is one thing, building hospitals is another and making sure children have warm clothes is one more, but why in the hell do tax payers have to fund or it even implied we’re responsible for anything outside of food, water, heat, clothing, etc along those same reasonable lines of needs?
Why should we keep our mouths shut when people are blatantly defrauding the welfare system? It’s our taxed income being used irresponsibly by the government. Why should we be shamed into silence? “Oh you must not care about poor people. You must be privileged. You just play classism.” Excuse me are you not the one playing classism when you complain how someone that planned ahead in life by working hard in school, then finding a good paying job, and then love, marriage and had kids after the honeymoon is “privileged”?
Oh but it doesn’t end there but this post does because I could go on all day with these examples. The modern day logic of what welfare should entail has gone from making sure people have necessities to, “Hey when you’re poor your bored so having an iPhone is important. Fuck you and die OP for being uncaring.” There is making sure people can survive but then there is rewarding their laziness or bad decisions with money and lifestyle they do not deserve because they don’t work for it, and have no reason to when it’s being handed to them.
Who the fuck would ever want to work and contribute when other people are paying for it? Just be the victim. Claim you’re poor. Shame others into charity and force government to use their tax income on you. Blame society and those more successful or at least more responsible by taking the initiative to get out of the poor house or never get in it. By all means make it out like they’re evil and not caring to get what you want. Idk but I can’t think of one society where this was allowed and it was prosperous, safe and secure one. “FUCK THE OP!”
You class warfare welfare people on tumblr can suck my …… IDC about your feels or wants. If you’re “poor” in the USA you are still better off than %70 of the world’s population. Quit your bitching and whining about a post on tumblr that has no cause or affect over your life or any ability to stop you from collecting or defrauding the system. Grow a spine you sensitive half brainers because you all failed to realize the point of that post. You went straight into “poor wittle me” victim statements. With that attitude you’ll always be in the lower class.
