Easy Money

2007-08-10 - 12:39 p.m.

More house cleaning and laundry. Today I have to head to the post office to get a CD I ordered. Also, I'm going to the laundromat to wash some big items...which means lunch at the cheap Chinese place nearby.

Kung pao chicken. Yum.


From Hud's blog:

A couple in Sweden are refusing to work, insisting that it's their "right" to live off the welfare state...and they're mad because their benefits got reduced. There aren't any health issues that prevent them from working - they simply don't want to:

"Conventional work is out of the question for me - both in terms of my conscience and on an intellectual level - as it seems objectionable with regard to both my personal well-being and the well-being of society as a whole. Emotionally too it creates unbearable pain and dejection," [the husband] wrote.

Gee, must be nice.


Speaking of being busy...

No wonder He gave the job to Bruce for awhile.


Oh, and speaking of "easy money"'s a contest where you can win $100, proving Al Gore RIGHT.


Way back here, I talked about Jack Benny. Mark Evanier recounts this story about the one and only time he met Mr. Benny.


Stuff to do. A day to attack. A CD to pick up.

Be seeing you.

I was on welfare for five years because of my husband leaving me while pregnant and I had no choice. Why anyone would want to live like that long term is still beyond me. I love that I have been working my way off government aid to being an even better stable and contributing taxpayer. Taking the handout, no matter how much it has been needed, has always been a humiliation to me.

Thanks for God's inbox, I got a good chuckle out of that and am sending it to a friend.
