Are americans getting that lazy? Thanks welfare for doing a wonderful job!

I'm just as much against

I'm just as much against giving handouts as anyone in America, but blaming welfare on this? What? She's 74, my guess would be her mind isn't 100% there anymore.

Are you serious??

And...are you really serious??
Some how...I thought your last sentence in your comment would have been you blaming Obama :-O
My wife works in a pharmacy, and believe me, a lot of elderly that come to get their meds "aren't in great shape or sound mind".
Why are they driving then? (you may ask). Well...a lot of elderly don't have love ones to tend to all of their needs...and driving is something they have to do.
This incident had nothing to do with Welfare...nothing! Confusion on her behalf perhaps...but no fault of the Welfare system.

I am 73 years old, certainly

I am 73 years old, certainly don't consider my self "elderly" and damn sure not confused! The woman made a mistake simple as that!
