Let's clear up a misconception: not everyone on PA is lazy
December 27, 2012 at 10:24 AM

Honestly these posts about lazy people on PA is driving me a bit nuts.

Why?  Because I know many people on PA who work their asses off and still can't make ends meet. 

Right now DH and I are on WIC, food stamps and heat assistance.  Why?  Because he has cancer and can't work and I lost my job due to state budget cuts.  We are both disabled veterans and when we looked at the economy and how things are going we decided that we should go back to school.  So we are both full time students in college so that we can make the future better for our family.  While we are doing that we need a bit of extra help mainly until DH is finally approved by the VA for disability.

I have a friend who is also on PA.  She is currently working 4 jobs (2 seasonal and 2 part time).  She works her ass off but still can't make ends meet so she has WIC and food stamps.  She also goes to school part time.

I know many hard working people who just can't seem to make ends meet in this economy.  They are either working hard on getting their education and they are working hard in multiple jobs or working full time.  

You can't judge every situation just by seeing one side of it.  Things such for a lot of people in today's world.

    People like you need it and deserve it. There are a lot of people that abuse the system and use it as a lifestyle without bettering their situation. Those are the people that are lazy.

    i agree and it is sad that so many women on here talk outloud about how they are abusing the system and proud of that ----  honestly no one needs to know your plight in life and keeping it to ones self is a better method of containing the spread of "how to" on abuse for our Gov't aid programs.  

    those programs do so many deserving families so much good - it burns me to hear first hand from the abusers how genius they are for getting what they do and how they use it --- nothing to be proud about.

    I think that the women who come here and proclaim they are abusing the system are honestly trolls.  They know it will work people up.

    It's a stereotype, and just like every stereotype it's true for some but not all. *shrugs*

    Stereotypes exist for a reason. Pat yourself on the back for not perpetuating this one.

     Many of us only know those on welfare that take advantage, so that is what we see and know and I tend to believe what I see more than what I am told on the Web.

    Quoting blues_pagan:

    I think that the women who come here and proclaim they are abusing the system are honestly trolls.  They know it will work people up.

    There are many women on this forum who are extremely immature.  It's scary that they are moms.  Calling them trolls is kinder than what I think of them lol.
