Re: “Handouts, handouts, handouts

I have been on the 'system' my enitire life, I didnt choose to be born with multiple disabilities, nor did i choose to be a rape survivor as well as growing up in a broken home with a mother with disabilities herself, i didnt choose to be born into a society that wont hire multiply disabled people because just maybe we'll appreciate the job more than an able bodied person & stay at the same job for 30+ years, I have NEVER panhandled in my life, I do use soup kitchens when I need to, I have only used a food bank 5 times in the last 17 years I've been on my own, I DID choose to become an advocate for disabled people, I DID choose to volunteer for various organizations for 15 years, before my sight got to a poitn that I cannot do the jobs they need done, I DID choose to be a poll clerk for 3 provincial & 2 Federal elections, also for 5 municipal elections in my home town in ontario, I DID choose to try to get my education, but be turned away because no where is equipped to deal with my disabilities..
I hate being on the system, I really do, but society seems to think that people that are multiply disabled are worthless & a waste of their time, so we are stuck to exist on peanuts..
I'm sorry, but how do you expect a person to live on $98 a month after rent & hydro are paid?
