    Default Tomfoolery inside the Welfare Office...

    Well-fed, energetic, in possession of smart phones with data plans....so, why exactly aren't these people working?

    the simple fact that this thread had "tomfoolery" in the title had me instantly hooked.

    We have approximately 10% of our population that are lazy pieces of shit.

    Just let them have their basic standard of living that makes them happy. Otherwise they are criminals.

    It's the basic European model, and I think it works better than incarcerating half of them.

    Here is minimum standard of living. Don't go fuck things up for the rest of us and stay out of our way.

    Add in a total sense of entitlement, a lack of respect for authority, a lack of education, no sense of morality or values, and a complete inability to function beyond a 1st grade level, and that is why these people cannot work. Who would want them working on anything important or in a trusted position anyway? I'm with DD, give them the basics and keep them out of my way.

    There's a difference between laziness and gaming a flawed system to take advantage. At higher levels we call it brilliance.

    Exactly.

    What is the difference between the people in this video and the people in charge in Washington? Nothing.

    What is the difference between the people in this video and others whose job it is to find loopholes in the system to benefit from? Very little.

    The only difference is that one group works, and does it, and the other sits back and collects a check. It's perfectly legal to take advantage of the system, if the system itself puts the carrot out. Yet we'll sit here in our ivory towers and lament the drain that welfare recipients have on our society? If one can work, then one should, but let's not get carried away, because at the end of the day the Federal Government is the villain not the person with an iPhone at the welfare office. You expect people to "do the right thing" if free shit is being given away?

    Don't see the point in this video, unless it's to make us feel superior somehow.

    There is no defending this and the "sticking it to the man" defense is ridiculous. The American people are the ones being stuck by having to pay for this situation. We are also at fault for allowing to continue.

    Nobody is "sticking it to the man". The "man" is giving it away...

    You guys are forgetting human nature in your analysis.

    I would rather pay them a certain amount to just stay the fuck out of my way than have to pay for them being incarcerated after they ruin someone's life to take what they won't earn on their own.

    Without getting into a long drawn out discussion on it, it's the European model, and I personally think it is better. Between that and our antiquated drug laws there is a reason we incarcerate more per capita than just about anyone else in the world.
