But that's just it... I don't mind if people own those things, I mind that people buy those things (before necessities) with public funds... I mind that the government allows them to qualify for the programs in the first place.

As a buisness man... imagine you offer a man $10.00 per hour to do specific tasks of work/labor for you for 8 hours. At the end of the day, he has earned that which you promissed him hasn't he?
What will you do when the man across the street, who has done nothing but set on the sidewalk for 8 hours watching the two of you work, comes to you and demands to be paid for having done nothing for you? Will you give him $80 also? How will the man who actually worked for you feel if you give the "sitter" that money? How will he feel if you give the sitter $40 (half wages)? $20? $10? How motivated will your worker be tomorrow, if he can join the sitter across the street and watch you work and STILL get paid?
