Immoral v Illegal

Have you seen the story about the $2 million lottery winner in Michigan who is still collecting food stamps?

There is a loophole that allows him to do this. Makes me wonder how many others are doing the same thing - they just don't happen to have millions in the bank or have won a lottery that brought attention to their situation.

This makes me both sad and angry. Yes, legally he is still entitled to food stamps but can he honestly feel he's entitled? Where is his sense of shame? We watched a movie on Will Rogers last night and how he helped those that had been effected by the Great Depression. He sought aid from millionaires and one of his arguments was that these people weren't looking for a handout, just a helping hand to get back on their feet. Mr. Lottery Winning Asshole sure puts a dent in that theory.


  1. Unfortunately there are two kinds of people in the world, the givers and the takers. This guy is obviously a taker but his day will come.

  2. Shut uP! No way! That is straight up a total A$$. He'll have some 'splainin' to do to St Peter I tell ya!

    Yes, I found a new job, but not nearly as exciting as staying home and being a housewife! I enjoyed that WAY more!
