Hunger and lack of housing REALLY allows people to find out what they are made of. I am a more confident and appreciative person because I know what it means to eat out of a garbage can. Nothing in life is scary because I know that I have what it takes to take care of myself.
My adult son left home and started getting food stamps. Then he got a temporary job and when that was over applied for unemployment. In the fall he will be taking thousands of dollars in grants to attend college. This boy has NO idea what to do without his "Nanny State". He is going along with what all his friends are doing. This, to me, is a national crisis.
Morally, taking money is sick, but we can't judge those who take it without disenfranchising my sons entire generation.
