Over e-mail transom: Other side of the Great Divide

A regular reader send this video. As I was reading George Rebane’s post on the Obama now ‘The Divider’  and this e-mail and attached video came to mind. What side of the divide do you think she is on?

    I checked the benefits in California and this does not check out.

    Whether or not the video is accurate, fraud is a very real problem. I’m speaking as someone who has been at the low end of the economic scale and has seen it with my own peepers. I know too many people who collect disability and are far less disabled than I am, or the people who decline employment because the benefits are less than what they receive for free from the government. If I see too much of this from my tiny corner of the world, then it would stand to reason that it goes on everywhere.

    The thing that pisses me off is that there are many who DO need this assistance, and that the freeloaders who game the system could make it harder for them to receive the help they truly need.

    The EBT website indicates they can get cash and food in our county, but no restaurants or farmers markets are listed. http://www.ebt.ca.gov/caebtclient/usebenefit.jsp

    Are those refrigerator magnets on her tube top?

  4. Having rented to women with children who are in rehab a few years ago (no one else would rent to them), I became schooled by these women on all the programs they were signed up for. They lived quite comfortably.
