All The News That Fits

The Dole

Posted by liloladenvers on November 15, 2009

Everything goes back to music for me; there is a song for every situation.  And I finally found one that explains the “moocher” class that has grown in this country.  Welfare, foodstamps, Medicaid, affirmative action, WIC, government cheese.  All seems to be beneficial, they are helping out the disadvantaged, the unfortunate, until they can get back on their feet.

But that isn’t the way it works.  What really happens is that they are stuck, bound, chained into a life of dependence.  It’s a life from which they cannot escape and that they believe they deserve.

How do they get out of the chains that bind them?  It’s very difficult, especially if their dependence has been going on for years, even generations.  We help people with other addictions.  There are 12-step programs and interventions to get them out from under the monkey on their back.  But we are not doing anything to get them off the dole.  And they don’t see any way out.  Why?

They owe their souls to the company store.
