Now if most people on welfare were like this, I would actually support it. As we know, most of them are worthless losers who leach off of all of us working people.

Um, if we put caps on welfare, I think we'd see a lot more success stories.
What's the incentive now?

I agree for the most part. I think we'd see a lot more success stories but also a lot more stories of desperate poverty.

There are other ways to limit welfare, though...

Yeah, and all those people not on welfare that haven't made a million are also losers too, I guess. When surveyed, many monetarily successful people stated luck was a large factor that contributed to their success. Obviously, if many could make a lot of money, they would freaking do it.

Luck helps. That's all. It just helps.

Regardless of luck, she went to college so she would not be on it forever. That is a far cry from the lifetime welfare queens who have kid after kid draining the tax payers.

If you are sitting at home, relying upon others for your livelyhood, i'd call that a loser, what would you call it? The new meaning of success?

One isnt successful simply because they chose to go to college, (as the woman in the story did), and going to college isnt "lucky".

You dont need to make a lot of money in order to stop being a leach upon society.

For some people it truly is. They don't have to work and they have no worries at all in life because their every need from food, housing, and health insurance is taken care of.

As a moonbat liberal of course you want to talk about the rich and successful people. These people must be evil because they are wealthy and successful of course (unless they're liberals). Taxing success to subsidize failure is the liberal way.
