Hey "Man,"

I fail to see how my previous post was "stereotyping people on benefits." I was simply sharing some of my personal experiences with students/clients my wife and I have worked with over the past ten years to illustrate what I believe are problematic issues within the Ontario Works program. I sincerely hope that those who are deserving and in need of assistance receive all the support they require, but not all of the individuals receiving social assistance deserve it. That is my argument, and it is certainly naive of you, or anyone else, to believe that the welfare system is not being taken advantage of by many (NOT ALL) recipients. Based on my experiences, it is not "EZ" enough for some undeserving (fraudulent) recipients "to be thrown off OW."

As for pulling myself out of the "gutter," I most certainly was not seeking your praise or admiration. Although, yes, I do believe that SOME of the people I have personally known to be on welfare do lack "gumption." Is that a stereotype?

Sorry for bringing you down, "Man."
