A customer, who happens to be black,told me today of a trend that outraged him. He said that black parents on welfare were teaching their kids to qualify for welfare and SSI by becoming LDD or SLD students, which automatically qualified them for SSI.....Can anyone milder tempered than me check this out? It's outrageous enough that our taxes are wasted,but to raise a generation trained for welfare abuse is OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Guess I don't know much about the welfare system since our family never had doings with it. I am confused. Doesn't this new law about only being able to be on welfare for five years do away with bums who live off it? Somebody please explain to me?

Sorry Carl, but it's not a "new" trend, as Burrhead pointed out.

I grew up living down the creek from two families that did nothing but collect their government checks and run bootleg and moonshine.

Guess what their kids and grandkids are doing today?

Lets all ask ourselves , How much of our tax money goes to support people that could work, but CHOOSE NOT TO, because it's easier to draw a government check.

Yep your friend is right.

That new trend also confuses the welfare stats too, because they move from State and Fed welfare rolls to SSI and Medicaide.

You're getting mad too late tho because the last 2 generation of bums of all races have self taught themselves, and now their children and grand children the finer points of welfare, tater tickets, and medicaide.

Around here there are as many whites on welfare and ?? disability payments than hispanic and black combined.

Well Burr, just don't go forgettin who revamped the whole Welfare system in this country, that fine Example of Texas State Teacher's College, Lyndon Baines Johnson. Can't let you miss out on takin appropriate credit for a fine Texas Dumocrat, and his brilliant ideas.

It's a good thing LBJ came along when he did. Ike and the conservatives had down trodden the working poor almost to the point of extinction.

Dear Ole Ike had used the colored folks for cooks and truck lumpers, and the poorer white soldiers as expendable items through his brilliant military career and it carried over to civilian life when he was Prez. It seems that Dear Ike thought folks could live in tar paper shacks and work for 35 cents and hour.

If you study any of your history at all the conservative party is and oppressive group of self righteous biggots, somethings never change. That's what's wrong with Scrub Jr and the party now.

Scrub wants to legalize the wetbacks now so the conservative business men can have a never ending source of cheap labor getting into America quicker and without having to be sponsored.

Franz you sure are selective with your history. A good public education in an under funded southern school would have helped you alot.

Wasn't that the great founding father Karl Marx, from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
Now let me see, the Dumocrat congress gave us graduated income tax, and AFDC under LBJ and SSDI for drunks junkies and general lobcocks, so don't that make this a communist guberment.
Seems I remember back in grammar school learnin about the Mayflower Compact, YOU DON'T WORK, YOU DON'T EAT. When did the Dumocrats repeal that one, was it under their great leader FDR?
How come all them Dumocrat bigwig geniuses all get called by their initials anyhow, is they tryin to be annonomous?
Sorta points out the brilliance of dumbin down the skewl system, don't it.
