Honestly, it was ducking horrible. Not because I didn't have fun money, but I was starting to get depressed before J&J picked me up (6months no job).

Not you. You appeared to have actually needed it and didn't go out and waste your damn money on a ridiculously expensive sport.

You mean it wasn't all it's cracked up to be? Lies, we've already heard all kinds of testimony about how amazing welfare is. So much free money and you get to eat lobster and gamble while not working!

I was getting 1600 a month. If I rented, I would have had fun money and then some... but I own a house.

Don't be ridiculous, we know BR isn't a minority.

Sounds like you were living beyond your means if you couldn't support yourself off of savings for 6 months. I thought you were a true American, not one to take handouts. For shame.

He has to be a minority, otherwise he would have been a responsible American.

Of course they should be able to use the money to gamble. They can't be expected to work for money. The only other logical way for them to make money is to gamble.

That's not true! Drug dealing is quite common and perfectly acceptable.These poor people can't be expected to actually get a real job! that's racist!!

I hope you aren't suggesting that somehow I wasn't right to spend my money on paintball. Anyone who suggests that can eat a dick, there is zero wrong with doing whatever you like with your income (legally), whatever it is, within a financially tenable and socially responsible framework. Ironically, the worst thing you could do with UI money is not spend it.

Basically your philosophy is you can do what you want with your money, until someone says "Hey, you have to much money. Time to take it from you and give to the poor."

edit: and to answer the question, no they should not. That money is given to them so they can cover their living expenses to get on their feet. Gambling does not help with that.
