    Nothing bad happens to them for feeling ashamed. They need to be on it and there should be no shame in that.

    Or having sex without being married. Or dressing like slobs and going out in public. A lot of things have changed. What was once important is no longer important. And sometimes that's not a good thing.

  • The financial grab of 2007/2008 that the Bush clan pulled off.

    Some label it as a "financial crisis" but it was deliberate just like 9-11

    You should ask all the farmers that get subsidies and all the businesses that got massive weflare in the form of huge tax cuts (that the middle class will end up paying in interest).  Thanks Trump!

    That was only for a short time after Reagan spread false propaganda about “welfare queens” getting filthy rich off the taxpayers dime.

    The kind of people who take advantage of welfare and similar programs are the kind of people who would not be ashamed. They are bottom feeders of society, they dont care. I'm not talking about disabled or elderly people who actually need it mind you
