Default Free underware

So on the radio ( austin ) they are talking about 4000 kids are getting free back packs and inside those backpacks will be 5 pair of underwear.
So, we give these " poor " people welfare, housing, phones, food stamps etc.
And still the tax payers have to provide free underware, tampons, food.

Why dont we just open up giant orphanages and remove these kids from their ****head parents.
If they cant buy underware for their kids they need to loose those kids and any gov. assistance the adults need to starve in the streets.

Also, if a family receives CHIP, they can apply for free phones (limited minutes/data) and free home internet.

My Ex rides this train. She doesn't claim the "live in boyfriend" of 5 years as income.
Her $11,000/year income puts her in line for all kinds of freebies. Meanwhile, I'm paying her $900/month so my son can eat corndogs for dinner and be home alone 4 nights a week while she "works" at the dance studio.

Are you sure the backpacks are government funded? It sounds like a charity thing to me, but I could be wrong.

These seem to be the reasons a lot of parents do take care of their children or themselves for that matter.

Im all for privately funded/donated charity. Totally against gvt funded. ( sounds like this one my not be gvt funded ). The thing that gets me is that so few that receive it actually NEED it. As others have said, most American poverty is due to laziness, drugs etc. I have no sympathy for those, and the kids suffer for it. Neglect etc charges shoukd be filed if you cant feed your kids because you WONT work or use drugs etc. Maybe in the end its all worth it ( privately funded ) if a few REALLY in need are helped.

I know that there are lots of charities that do this type of thing but what I heard kept specifically mentioning AISD was providing the packs and the underware.and also mentioned the free lunch during summer and other stuff..
If it turns out it is a charitable endeavor I have no problem with that.
That said our taxing entities love to throw our money out the window by expanding gifts to the poor instead of making the poor accountable for what they already recieve

My son's daycare has been doing something similar the last few weeks. One week it's bottled water, next week socks and underwear, etc. We also take two nieces and a nephew each year to get backpacks and some clothes. I'm a softie for kids, partly because I was a bit spoiled but grew up in an area where plenty of my friends did without.

The parents tho...I wouldn't swerve in a ditch to miss them.

This is a good thing also to teach your kids sharing and charity.

Agreed on the parents that need to get out and find a job.

100% agree. Been pretty jaded by what I've seen when helping, but in every case it's been crappy parents. Heck we had a mom of a family we helped steal her daughters money (because the daughter was actually trying to work) and then tell her that she needs to ask us for gas and food. Like how screwed up can you be that you purposely steer your kid into the ditch and use them selfishly.

That said, I wouldn't hesitate to help anyone in need and get folks off the govt funded charity line.

Many working tax payers have to take and pass a drug test to keep employment. Folks receiving Government assistance should be required to do the same.

I haven’t read the article. But no kid should go without food and clothes and the things they need regardless of their parents. Ever. And I’d gladly help them out. Like the charity stuff HEB does. $5 extra to help feed some folks or provide school supplies to kids? They need that $5 worse than me.

Kind of my thinking too. Of all things to get worked up about government spending, getting kids some school supplies and clean underwear isn’t one of them.

I’m all for the kids sake it’s the dead beat parents who elect not to work & do everything they can to milk the system for every nickel & dime. I saw a video posted on FB about a woman who received a letter in the mail saying she was approved for welfare benefits. You would have thought she won multi millions in the lottery the way she hysterically reacted dancing & such.

Wife works in NICU at the hospital... Parents will visit the kids coming in smelling like weed, and only come in long enough to meet the minimum amount of hours to get the hospital's vouchers. They give you money to make your car payment and house payment, or pay for hotels, food, etc. for the months you're away from home as long as you see the kid every so often. But they all have their $1,200 iPhones.

So forgive me for being jaded when you have luxurious material items but beg for money to make a house payment.

I'm all for it. This is underwear and school supplies for kids, not something likely the parents are going to sell although most folks receiving it will not meet that stereotype anyway. School supply list can be a couple hundred dollars for mine. That's a lot of money to somebody scraping by. Yes you can say the parents should be able to provide for their kids but if they can't why not help them. I have no problemstelling an adult to work a little overtime if they need more money. This is a different situation though, we're talkin about underwear and school supplies that will help a kid getting an education. We fill backpacks every year and they go to kids that need it. Im all for helping a kid out.

A pack of underwear is what less than 50 cents a pair. Soap and water is what, a few cents. If these kids are that bad off, food is probably much more important that clothing.

I am never suprised by this site anymore. I would be embarrassed if I was on the side worried about kids recieved free underwear. I am about as conservative as they come but I still have a heart. Original poster either needs listening comp skill or better news source. The underwear were donate free to the kids. Link below.

It took about 5 seconds for me to google the article and get to the bottom of the story. Before I posted a "rant" I would have done a little research and had my facts straight. Might want to find a better source of news or talk radio if they didnt give the full story. All that said I missed the "fine print" and accept your mistake as I have made many in my life. Let's all hug.
