Default 449,200 welfare families in California,

So out of 449,200 welfare families in California, 50.9% of them are
HISPANIC. And we are told that the mexicans are just poor people who are
very hard workers and they come here to work? Looks like the facts speak for
themselves.

WOW, Junkman . . . impressive "claim to fame" for California.

Out of that 50%, I wonder how many are in this country ILLEGALLY?

Check out Texas and New Mexico, if you think we've got it bad in CA.

Got that right, Don'tH8Me

Arizona has a whopping 50% as well, however, California has such a huge total.

The grocery stores here on food stamp day (when the Lone Star Card is replenished) tell the true story about these "so-called" hard workers. Not a word of English is spoken and virturally everyone is loading up several carts and proudly paying with their Lone Star Credit card.

Not only that -- many of those families are the very large hispanic families with the welfare mother having 8 or 9 kids. The non-hispanic welfare families tend to be quite a lot smaller - 1 or 2 kids.

Isn't it great! And to think, the working middle class is paying for their sorry asses. Let's invite more in! I'm not poor enough. They haven't turned off my power, YET!

I agree, but "claim to shame" may be a bit more appropriate!

I will have to take your word for that; if I see more that three kids under the age of 10 with the same 'Latino' mother, I am surprised. Most of our Hispanic couples tend towards 1-2 children anymore.
