I think its kinda funny the way most religious conservatives are against social services. Here in California, (a very liberal state). Religious organizations benefit from social services. I’m currently receiving services from the state. First of all anyone who thinks you can sit back and pop out more kids and get more money is wrong. Clinton took care of that. If you are currently receiving services and are pregnant, that child will be ineligible for benefits. Also the social service programs are work first programs. They give you job experience. That translates into a few things. They help you with resumes education and such. You are required to participate in activities of those kinds in order to keep getting aid. Once training and education is up to par, you are required to “volunteer”. Here in our county the only places I was told I could volunteer at was, The Salvation Army, A Christian Fellowship program, Or a Christian program to help developmentally disabled adults. I declined the latter saying its against my views. I was asked if I was refusing to participate, (wich would get me sanctioned and my benefits would cease.) I took the Salvation Army position in order to be able to feed my family. In doing so I found out 80% of the SA’s work force is “volunteers”. As is most of the other organizations the county cooperates with. Basically the state is making me work for an organization, if that organization knew my beliefs they would terminate me. This I dont understand.
This is kinda off topic, but you also have to list all assets. If you possess items worth a certain dollar amount you have to liquidate them. 401K’s, burial plots, vehicles, homes, and firearms. Basically if the state finds out I own guns they can deny me of my second amendment rights in order for me to receive wellfare. I have done nothing wrong, just down on my luck in the job market.
This is exactly how it works. You can’t own SHIT if you want to be on welfare for any reason. You. Can’t. Have. Shit.
And they don’t care what bills you have to pay, how high your student loans are, whether or not your lights are about to get shut off, because you WILL burn through your assets, or you WILL be denied.
And if you had that shit in the bank, and had to take it out? Bring receipts. You WILL need to prove you spent that fucking money.
But yeah, folks are just sitting back happy to be broke.
