While it's not politically correct to say so, I don't support providing gov't assistance to someone who dropped out of school as a teenager to have a child as an unwed mother, with no means of support for the child or themself. To compound the problem, many times there are multiple children involved, and often no father named or child support being paid. While I don't want to see anyone starve, it's not my responsibility to pay for their mistakes or to pay for the consequences of their poor decisions or lack of parental involvement. Work 3 jobs...get charity from private sources...etc....but it's not my problem.
Common sense is sorely lacking in terms of entitlements.

Still, you worry about the kids.
I feel bad for this lady and her kids, hopefully she will find herself in a better situation if for nothing else but those children.

Certain things are paid for collectively -- police and fire, roads, military, infrastructure, et al. But beyond those basics it is not society's responsibility/duty to take care of others. If someone overeats MUST we also pay their extra healthcare? WHY?

You and whomever else are free to dedicate your time money and energy toward the problem if you like. Go right ahead, I will applaud you for doing so. But making this a collective problem is nothing short of forced wealth redistribution, aka socialism, communism, aka outright theft.
Agreed

Do the math. If she is 35, no way, she was 12 in the 9th grade.

Sounds like, she moved here and was held back a year or two. Hence, she graduated at 20, if the numbers are correct.

It says she graduated with a nursing degree (although later it says "I do what i do because that's what i do') and claims to earn $60,000 to $75,000...that's more than I ever made and I've not had to ask for assistance providing for my basic needs.

Interesting how her page is posted with status designer brands like Chanel and Vuitton.

Scary how illiterate she is for having an associate degree (but I think that's increasingly common these days, for all college degrees).

Being from the hood I know an old school rat when I see one. Id bet money that most of that info she has on her page about her degree and what she does for a living is false. You dont have money to pay for your gas bill but you have money to ball in the club. Half of your pics are of you bent over showing your azz...id bet money she either did or does strip.

A few notable quotes from her myspace

"I project my sexuality, my unique radiance is self evident. For the week woman who can't be REAL BI**CHES, get wit me cause u B**ches can't take me!!"

"A men that is HARD WORKING, RESPECFULL and knows how to treat a black women or women in general. A VIBRANT ATTRACCTIVE Men, someone that can stimulate and turn my mind on. Let's get to know each other, and form a bond that is so characteristic of a great friendship. "

Degree.. Chattahoochee Tech from 1995 to present.. for an associates degree?



The classic stripper stance accompanied by the typical hoodrat leg tattoo. Im tellin ya... either current or former stripper i'd bet my next check on it. When you're used to seeing rats everyday you can spot em out easy and this is a rat lol.
