This is why I am not on Facebook. I was for about 2 weeks but people posting stuff like this made me like them a little bit (or a lot) less and I felt I was sometimes better off not knowing.
As for welfare, DH and I get nothing (no baby bonus, FTB, gov't maternity leave) except for CCB which I believe benefits the child care centers (or was intended to) but I don't begrudge a penny of my taxes being used for welfare. As Ghandi said, a nation's greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members. Without dignity, independence and free will in how those people make their decisions, we cannot call ourselves a society. I do not want my children growing up thinking that a person's worth is measured by how much money they earn. It makes as much sense to me as judging by skin colour or whether they have straight or curly hair.

depending on who it was I would just delete.
I have one friend who posts similar crap, but shes led a very sheltered life, and hasnt had a great deal of education or life experience, yet is a lovely person and has been there for me when I needed her.
So I have her on a FB filter.
most other people I would delete. DHs uncle posted a homophobic update the other day and I had a lively 'discussion' with him
I know I am unlikely to ever have a mortgage. I will be nearing 40 by the time I am back in employment and will have a single income.
