She lives in AZ now and post on an article on FB about Californian's moving to AZ, "people in California should stay there" um hello your from California....

No wonder we barely speak lol
She's obviously OK with welfare programs when she's the one benefiting. It's just when other people get help, that's the problem.

I used to have these 'conversations' with my mum all the time.
She'd complain upon reading about the latest grant given by the GLC to a yogurt knitting, disabled lesbians collective and I'd point out her decisions and lifestyle had been a series of subsidies, one after the other; four kids, child benefit, tax allowances, kids education, family healthcare, subsidised social housing when their privately rented place got too small; tax relief on the mortgage when they decided to buy a house etc while people without kids and spouses had paid more in tax and taken less out....

It's really tricky to teach a yoghurt how to knit a lesbian correctly I've been told.

You're quite right BB, I've heard the same thing. I believe yoghurts do make quite nice crocheted lesbians though.

Well they are worthy, of course. It's those other deadbeats who aren't worthy.
