Oh look, right on time with the "cringe" accusations, this has now become a "Why Welfare Just Keeps the Afro-American Population In the Gutter" argument when they aren't even statistically the typical welfare recipient. Again, dodging reality because THIS SOUNDS GOOD TO ME. Man, you fudging showed me. Where's the plus button...
What's that, ignoring the fact that you're wrong, still, for the eleven billionth time and more dumb fudging quotes that make you feel good about your dumb opinion? You bastard, that's twice ya got me in one day. I'll never live this one down!
