I remember that. They complained, and if they refused to work, no welfare.

Possibly A Reason For Our Top 10 Poverty Cities
Waiting at California welfare office
"Waiting at California welfare office
Carolina Fuentes and her daughter Katherine, 5, wait for an
appointment at the Sacramento county welfare office in Sacramento,
Calif., Monday, June 1, 2009. Facing a $24.3 billion state budget
deficit, Gov. Arnold Schwarzengger has proposed ending welfare for
poor mothers and their children, wiping out health insurance for 1
million children and disbanding care for people with Alzheimer's
disease or other disabilities. Fuentes, 22, a newly-single mother ,
doesn't qualify for benefits, having crossed the U.S.-Mexico border
as a teenage. She applied for cash assistance, food stamps and
health coverage of her daughter." I'll bet Obama is heavily
supported in these cities. Go ahead, I expect many people to call me
a racist for sharing the e-mail I received below.
Remember where the equal distribution of money goes to. Also
remember, "if you can't sell, buy." How about a new one. If you want
to make money without breaking a sweat, go into politics. Or; If you
don't want to work for generations, make people that work pay for
you. Welfare is a wonderful thing when you are disabled or have a
problem you can't handle. Don't tell me know one in a family can
find any kind of job for generations. I heard the; "that job is
below me." If you can't find any job, what can be below you? This is
an easy concept for the politicians. They get elected, are assured
of their pensions, receive great health-care, make a nice salary
hell, why should they care about those of us trying to just make it.
We need to get rid of this life-time welfare. What incentive does
anyone have when they get taken care of. I'm old enough to remember
when getting welfare meant you couldn't have a washer & dryer or a
color television. Now it means rent, washer-dryer, color TV (with
cable), car, well you get the picture. My father worked day and
night, he slept two hours a day. He told me; "he would clean toilets
to feed and cloth us. He never wanted to take from the government.
This could be said of all races at that time. It was embarrassing to
say your family was on welfare and they say change is good. How is
it possible a family can be on welfare for generations? The e-mail
below will show which are our ten worst cities for people to be
under the poverty line. Read it to the end, maybe you will see what
they all have in common. Of course there are other problem's, but
this hit me in the face.
"City, State, % of People Below the Poverty Level

What do the top ten cities (over 250,000) with the highest
poverty rate all have in common?

Republican mayor since 1961;
Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn't elected one since 1954;

Einstein once said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the
same thing over and over again and expecting different results.'
It is the poor who habitually elect Democrats---yet they are still
"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot
strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about
prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner
up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the
brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build
character and courage by taking away people's initiative and
independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them,
what they could and should do for themselves."
