Everything louder than everything else

Today was like every other day, in that it had its ups and downs.

Up – got some stuff done this morning, played pharmacology baseball (awesome study tool by the way), had a great lunch and did some zumba for the first time ever. Had a lot of fun.

Down – I almost walked out of my EMT class. My instructor asked me if I needed to go snoke a cigarette for fuck’s sake.
Before we got started, people were chit chatting and ranting a bit. Someone suggested that people boycot welfare. Every person that gets government help in any form is apparently lazy as they can be. They all don’t want to do shit with themselves but sit and collect free stuff.

This brings me back to my whole people need to educate themselves thing. If everyone only knew what life on welfare was like, and what you go through to get help and keep it, I believe they’d change their minds on a few things.

Take it from someone who has been there. It’s not easy, free, or anything of the sort. Research the rules for your state…. I’m in Indiana if you’d like to look up mine.

Yes, there are peolple that lie, cheat and abuse the system. We don’t have enough manpower to catch everyone doing it. I wish we did. I’m all for requiring drug testing to get welfare, and don’t understand why more states aren’t doing it.

I’m still having a hard time believing I got that offended. It doesn’t happen often. On a lighter note, I’m going to finish watching this comedy special. Rodney Carrington is hillarious.
