This came from a friend of mine in email. I’ve already shared it there and thought I’d share it here for those who might not have seen it. Really amazing where our money’s going.

I heard this on Rush and had to share the story.
[T]he fact that some seasonal landscaping workers choose to stay home and collect a check from the state, rather than work outside for a full week and spend money for gas, taxes and other expenses, raises questions about whether extended unemployment benefits give the jobless an incentive to avoid work.
“It’s like, you’ve got to be kidding me,” Pompeo said. “It’s frustrating. It’s honestly something I’ve never seen before. They say, ‘Oh, OK,’ like I surprised them by offering them a job.”
Some job applicants are asking to be paid in cash so they can collect unemployment illegally, said Gayle Younglove, vice president at Outdoor Experts Inc. in Romulus.
“Unfortunately, we feel the economy is promoting more and more people and companies to play the system and get paid or collect cash money so they don’t have to pay taxes,” Younglove said.
This is what decades of leftist government has done to Michigan. And Michiganders keep re-electing these politicians. Detroit closed 23 schools in the last 2 years and laid off thousands of teachers because there’s no money and more and more, there’s no population. The middle class is leaving in droves. And the wealthy almost don’t exist there anymore. What does that leave for the future of Detroit and Michigan?
A leftist utopia: a huge ghetto.
