From My Observation Tower
Before winning the lottery, she was receiving $200 a month in state food assistance.......and still is......after winning over a half a million dollars!
Here's what she's quoted as saying, "I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn't, I thought, maybe, it was OK because I'm not working."
Help me out here. Where are the people who are doling out our money? Are they sound asleep in a cave in Pakistan? A Michigan resident who's on the state welfare roster wins a Michigan State Lottery and the Michigan State DHS workers don't hear about it? and don't take her off the welfare roster?
When asked if she thought she had a right to public assistance now, here's what she said: "I kind of do. I have no income, and I have bills to pay. I have two houses....It's hard. I'm struggling."
No frickin' wonder we baby boomers are all on blood pressure pills and serotonin reuptake inhibitors. There are a whole lot of people in this country who need one good, swift kick in the ass!
Whew! Where are my pills..........
