    Seniors are angry over having to wait in sun for $25 food vouchers | The Post and Courier, Charleston SC - News, Sports, Entertainment

    I've heard it all:

    - Complaints about the near free section-8 housing
    - Complaints about what you can/can't buy with FREE food stamps
    - Complaints that the welfare checks aren't enough

    You get the idea. Well, here is a new dandy: Seniors are angry over having to wait in sun for $25 food vouchers | The Post and Courier, Charleston SC - News, Sports, Entertainment

    Lined up for FREE $25 food vouchers from the local county government. And how do they show their thanks? By complaining that it was too hot for them to wait for the free vouchers, that the gov't "should've" known and moved it somewhere air conditioned. Yeah, getting FREE food vouchers isn't enough, you wanna be pampered while you wait?

    My response: "THEN DON'T GO ACCEPT THE TAX FUNDED FOOD VOUCHER BITCH!!!"

    Good God. Our society becomes more helpless by the day. Most of these people would've died off in the 1800's, we've become so freaking SOFT.

    Years ago, when central FL was pounded by 3 hurricanes in a row, I was managing a popular BBQ restaurant.
    After several days of no electricity our meat was beginning to thaw and needed to be cooked.
    We fired up our portable catering grills and recruited as many others we could find and just started cooking everything and GAVE it away.
    Power&Electric personnel and first responders got front-of-the-line privileges, of course.

    I can't count how many times I heard, "What?! No ribs?!"
    You're welcome, asshole, keep the line moving.

    Following Hurricane Hugo in Charleston, 1989, the local police rounded up as much water as possible, and was filling Coke bottles with it (1989 was before the explosion of bottled water). Anyway, they were giving it away to people. And people were outraged that the water was not cold. Seriously.

    Thats why our society is screwed. You'd think the people would be overly appreciative of a FREE food voucher given out to anyone who showed up.

    Instead...they complained about the heat. In Charleston....in June. And said the government should've done something about it. "It" being the heat....in Charleston, SC, in the summer. Brilliant.

    Our current social climate doesn't support any show of appreciation or civility.

    Period.

    Well, may God Bless You for serving that food to the emergency workers and others. You're a great citizen for doing so.

    And this isn't NBC....I can still say God, right?
