Time to monitor welfare recipients

— It would seem to me that for anyone on welfare the welfare system should have people working for them going around and seeing how the people are spending their so called food money. Over here in War, I for one have seen people on their give away system get $20  of lotto tickets.

I for one hate to think that that the country is taking  money from people who work. McDowell County is loaded by deadbeats who only get afraid when they think they might have to go to work. They are running around looking for scrap iron when they could be trying to get work.

I had to leave War when I was a boy to find a job. They could do the same thing. I of course had a dad who worked and was the enforcer at my house, which is so lacking these day.
