No, I am commenting on her gleaning. The true sense was for those less fortunate to be able to work for their food. Farmers were not allowed to help the people gather. To say the gleaning system is dead is false.

I have no problems with those who fall on hard times. Everyone falls on hard times and need help at some point in their lives. Or there are those who were stable, the parents split up and the one parent cannot make ends meet without the other parent. So the remaining parent needs aid. I had a friend in that position. Then there are the less responsible who know ends can never be met and keep procreating. Yes, there are services, but to keep going and going tax them. So more and more funds have to be put into those programs instead of into other programs.

Yes, small families and single people do abuse the system as well. I am not saying that it is only larger groups that do. I am not saying that all larger families abuse the system. What you are reading as anger is not anger.
