Neither a borrower nor a lender be:
I rent houses to a lot of people who collect a LOT of our tax money. I showed a duplex to a lady today that is well known as a druggie and a hell raiser. She gave me her application. When I added all her 'entitlements' she made $2000.00/mo! The house I was going to rent her, til I found out she was trouble, is only $395/mo here in NC. That is a lot of remaining expendable income that is our money we go to work for every day that she gets to spend as she desires.
I am qualified to complain about our fatally flawed social programs. I see and live it everyday and I get angry so that our system is irreparably broken and also sad that these people EXPECT this kind of money to sit on the couch watching Judge TV all day and then complain that they are on welfare.
My answer is we help people for a time while we train them to do a trade or something that will give them a good head start, then set them free. With the exception of the infirm there is no reason people can't get a job and stand on their own two damn feet and sink or swim!
There is nowhere in our Constitution that says half the people are supposed to support the other half. It is time to stop socialism from taking over our republic anymore. We MUST fix the abuse of our social programs and restore our great country where life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is guaranteed. NOT contraception, abortion, houses, food, medical care, cell phones yada yada yada yada!
Our forefathers would laugh at us now! I personally believe live free or die!
