Both of these stories are personally true. I didn’t even search to find these, some friends just happened to mention these to me. Imagine what we’d find if we searched.
- I have a friend who is a teacher. We spoke recently about education. She said that many of her students who don’t care about their school work gave her the following explanation: “Why should I care about school and getting a good job when I can just be on welfare like my parents”.
- I have a police officer friend who responded to a domestic call. He found out that the father was unemployed and drunk, and that the mother (of 2 kids) was getting a welfare check. He saw that the son (age 5 or 6) had a flat screen TV mounted on his bedroom wall, and an XBOX 360 and PlayStation3 in his room.
