Check your facts, because the majority of people on food stamps work at least one job, many work 3 or 4, but since corporations like Walmart don't pay a living wage they have no choice but to get food stamps to survive on an income that wouldn't feed, clothe, or shelter a single person, much less a family. We are sometimes getting 80+ hours of "sweat equity" , and often from both parents, but until we give people a fighting chance to live on what they are paid, this type of corporate welfare will continue at our expense while Walmart et.al. continue to profit from not paying people enough to even fill their gas tank to get to work. Some people do give up since it doesn't seem to make even a slight differences whether they work their fingers to the bone or not.
Batazoid, even Trump has let that foolishness go, but one must be willing to learn the truth, and people like you are determined to wallow in ignorance and bigotry. You wear it as your badge of honor, but the rest of us see a dunce cap. Speaking of people needing to release records, was Trump right when he said his voters didn't care about taxes and that kind of stuff i.e. "They are too stupid to understand the hoax I'm pulling". He mocks the "poorly educated people" he claims to live to their faces and they just cheer louder. I would almost feel sorry for you all if you weren't so darn hateful and disgusting to everyone else who has to cross paths with your fat, white, ignorant, poorly educated a$$!
Fact: the counties with the most white Republicans also have the HIGHEST percentage of citizens on welfare. More white people are on welfare than blacks. White people think they should be able to drop out of HS, get no training or additional education, and not have to "lower themselves" to do the kind of work many people from Mexico are proud to do and do well instead of halfway.
As a former teacher in a high poverty area where everybody was poor (black, white, and Hispanic), if I had a problem student I would prefer to deal with Hispanic parents every time. They are respectful, grateful, and appreciate the value of their child's education. They understand thT you are on their side and they cooperate to help their child be successful. I've never had to call an Hispanic parent twice to get their child in line.
Dealing with many of the white parents and/or black parents however was often challenging. Many had an entitled attitude and believe that everybody is just picking on their sweet, innocent child rather than understanding that a teacher can't teach 28 students when 1 decides he/she doesn't have to obey the rules or respect others. Perhaps some of us need to be knocked down a few pegs to appreciate being able to work (instead of refusing "menial" tasks) and understand that the opportunity available to their children to receive a good, free, and public education is a privilege not everyone has and understand that educators shouldn't be treated like servants to them and their out of control children.
