Being poor is *shit*. I had next to no money as a student, and the experience strongly motivated me to never be poor again. Anyone who is satisfied with such a pale imitation of life is deserving of nothing but _pity_.

We have welfare, yet people still take jobs, and it's not like those of us with jobs aren't already paying for welfare anyway. All this does is chop out the bullshit middlemen.
