    Three welfare workers sentenced for scheme

    Three former state workers stood before an Albuquerque judge Friday pleading for mercy for stealing thousands of dollars worth of food stamps.

    Roenetta Ransom, Soledad Segura and Martha Rodriguez and two others used their government jobs to steal more than $100,000.

    Here's another example. This loser helped steal half a million tax dollars from CYFD and only rec'd probation..

    I can't see the connection between the title of the thread and the topic of the thread.

    Room for criminality does not show inherent failur of government programming. It just shows a particular imperfection in the system allowing more freedom.

    So like because somebody steals $100,000 foodstamps from the government, the foodstamp program is a failure?

    So, using your logic, Madoff's $50,000,000,000 ripoff shows us why free market capitalism fails?

    No?

    Didn't think so.

    I said another reason....as in one of many others.

    This happens frequently...the government employees ripping off the programs they work for and tax payers pay for it. Note in the article,that one of these idiots was "given" a house by Habitat for Humanity. Wonder how many other programs these dorks have ripped off. Nice to know you don't mind your tax dollars being ripped off constantly,in these two cases alone.. to the tune of $600,000.00.

    But this isn't a reason. To be another reason, it must be included in the list of reasons. Things that aren't reasons are not included in the list of reasons. Therefore, this is not another reason.

    Sure it is....you are just being stupid.


    Now I KNOW you don't think the government social programs are working as is. If that were true, you libs wouldn't keep crying about them every election cycle.

    Woe is me,the poor starving two headed babies (thank you Peggy Noonan) and granny's need more social programs...elect the messiah and he will feed you "hope".

    Now,when shown some of the problems with these programs and out right fraud, libbies deny and ignore....why is that? You do realize these people are stealing from the very poor people you supposedly worship every four years...right?:cuckoo:
