    I grew up on welfare and am very thankful that it existed at the time. I wish that it still did.

    I go absolutely crazy when I don't have something to do. I certainly prefer work that I enjoy but will do anything to avoid being without work. I consider myself lucky that I've always been able to find it. There have been times when I've sat by a pay phone waiting for a call because I listed that as my home phone because I had no home.

    Ironically, I do have some republican relatives who are on unemployment and intend to milk it for all it's worth and have said so.
