States Where Welfare Recipients Are Paid More Than Minimum Wage

Have you seen those "Work At Home" Ads?
Well, if you're a moocher, look no further.
I've discovered states where "Work At Home" does not require you to put any money up front and hope you're not about to get ripped-off by whatever the ruse may or may not be.
Just get on welfare and make more than minimum wage by watching TV and/or playing video games all day.
This article tells professional moochers where they should live the life of Riley all year round.
Oh, I have a caption for what the guy in the most pricey giveaway #1state on the bottom of the column may be saying: "I'm spreading the wealth around."

    Its worse than that. Now that the "needy" get a credit card style ID for food stamps, cant have them feeling embarrassed by having to pay with coupons - just isnt "fair". The card is reloaded every month with whatever the amount taken from taxpayers and given to the "hungry" . On the face of it, were not paying printing costs, but there is a larger issue, the allotted amount is added to the card no matter if there is still an unused balance, I have seen amounts in the hundreds and read reports of amounts in the thousands, if you look at a receipt from a food stamp purchase, the amount available to the account is printed on the bottom. Apparently, no one in govt. bothered to install what I would assume is a simple procedure to only add the difference in the amount payable to any existing balance when the card is reloaded. I wrote an article about this several years ago - I`ve not seen where the practice was changed. http://4thestatemedia.com/?p=226

    and you ask why people don't care about working.
    altruism is working quite well these days.
    eventually it will take over and even the elites will have to clean their own homes.

      Back in 1982 I graduated from the Alabama Department of Corrections training academy in Selma on the same day I took the final exam.
      Before my class took the exam, word got out that a group of black trainees would "play the system" by deliberately flunking the exam.
      From day one at the academy were all paid employees and flunking the school would get you fired from the job, that making you eligible for unemployment benefits.
      When we graduates (half of my group still black) were ordered to form up for our graduation photo, I recall about seven failed trainees staring at us after having changed into civilian clothes.
      They went to their cars while I began a career with a retirement plan that I now enjoy for getting old with.

    The slippery slope to communism starts with altruism. Welfare entitlements and The collective greater good sucks the freedom from a nations
    Citizens. Like Dracula feeds on the life force of blood at the expense of the living ,there is always the next victim.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gqr3yzr64V4

      I was not fully grown when I saw that movie on TV. It made quite an impression.
      That movie was based on a play but not the original work, a novel by Bram Stoker.
      I read the novel as a fully grown teenager. It is presented as a chronological compilation of writings by fictional characters.
      Very eerie is a ship's log about people disappearing until it crashed into an English shore with all hands lost.
      The scene in the link is about Jonathan Hawker meeting Dracula all at the start of the book, the play and the first movie called Dracula. The very first was a silent movie called Nosferatu.
      Hawker becomes enslaved by a nonlethal bite, develops an appetite for flies and is thrown into a lunatic asylum.

        Hawker sounds like a libretard kissed by the Evil hag , most of them belong in the looney bin as well. Thanks for the background on Dracula very interesting.

          I've read "The Bride Of Frankenstein" (the first one) described as one of the best fantasy films ever made.
          I enjoy it as a comedy. Several scenes are a hoot.
          At the end, who the heck ever constructs a "Don't touch that lever!" that blows you up along with your castle?

    I don't know how anyone could survive like that - I was out of work for 6 months in my early 20's; the result was so traumatizing I swore I would never do that again.

    Surprisingly, even tho back then I was a proud-as-poop leftist commie-leaning socialist sympathizer, I never took unemployment insurance. I lived off my savings and a few investments. Still... I think back all those decades ago to that 6 month period of ungainful unemployment - and it STILL makes me shudder.

      I had a similar experience and that was shortly after the Jimmy Carter debacle I voted for killed off the last of my Vietnam War generated left wing leanings.
      Being out of work and having trouble finding a job can instill one heck of a work ethic when you finally do get hired.

        Time to put the moochers and looters in the same coral...let em eat their own feces.

        Contrary to popular misunderstanding of the teachings...We are NOT our brothers keepers.

        Would it be called "Hate" if we "Drum" that into their empty heads?...seems there would be plenty of room in there.

          They'd run out of feces quick for starving.
          Without go-between producers to feed upon, mooching and looting parasites just gotta die.
          I predict the looters will die first because there are far more moochers~just like the zombies of The Walking Dead.
