And rightfully so. I did. I chose to screw around in my late teens and early twenty's. On the brink of homelessness I joined the Army, became a man.
There are now so many social programs in the US, its freekin mind boggling. If a person wants the help it is already there.
I earn what I have, I'll do what I can to keep as much of it that I can, thank you very much.
