COMING SOON TO A COUNTRY NEAR YOU…

While this story comes from across the pond, there’s no doubt in my mind that we’ll be hearing more and more stories like this here at home.  The ever-growing welfare state in the United States will make sure of that. Lisa and Carrie-Ann Beaney currently live in a taxpayer-paid “single B&B room” in England with […]

DRUG FREE FOR FREE MONEY – REVISITED

Almost two years ago, I wrote an article, “Drug Free for Free Money,” in which I applauded Florida Governor Rick Scott for requiring adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug screening.  I thought it was a great idea and still do. But, then, I don’t wear a black muu muu.  Immediately after the law […]

Follow Up Story on Lottery Winner/Welfare Recipient Amanda Clayton

A while ago, I wrote an article “Stories that Put a Smile on my Face”  It was an article about Amanda Clayton who won a $1 million lottery and still continued to collect welfare from the state.  The reason it put a smile on my face was because she was caught and forced to pay […]

NO THANKS TO THE GOVERNMENT

Very recently, the President said the following: “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If you’ve got a business, […]

“I’M TRYIN’ TO GET SOME OBAMA BUCKS”

That’s one of the responses from a man standing in line at the welfare office.  If your stomach can take it, please watch this video.  Our country is spending money faster than we can print it and there’s no doubt in my mind that we’re heading in the same direction as Greece – a big […]

THE NANNY STATES OF AMERICA

Minnesota, like so many states, is facing a harsh reality.  On July 1st, the government shut down and each side began blaming the other for failing to pass a budget that would solve the $5 billion deficit. What caught my attention was the story of Sonya Mills, a 39-year-old mother of eight children – six […]

“MONEY FOR NOTHING AND YOUR ‘CHITS’ FOR FREE”

I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but I just can’t help myself. I run a law office which operates in Washington and California.  I keep calendars, meet deadlines, know in which court my husband is expected to be, and do tons of paperwork.  When I order supplies, I know exactly what I’m buying […]

DRUG FREE FOR FREE MONEY

Anyone who’s ever read my posts knows how much I hate government waste.  The only thing I hate more than the government hemorrhaging money is the lack of oversight and accountability to the taxpayers. I work for my husband so I don’t have to drug test.  But think of how many millions of workers have […]

WHO’S RICH? WHO’S POOR?

Almost eighty Catholic educators recently criticized U.S. House Speaker, John Boehner, due to speak at Washington’s Catholic University.  They claim his record is “among the worst in Congress” when it comes to protecting the poor.  The letter called on Speaker Boehner to “reawaken your familiarity” with church teachings on the subject of poverty.  The letter […]
