    Myself and Welfare

    I do not view myself to be on welfare. What is welfare and am I associated with it? How do I know? As well, is there anything wrong with welfare?
    Bereishit - Genesis - Chapter 1

    1 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth.
    :א בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ

    in beginning he created gods the heavens and the earth

    It's stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, ie, stealing.

    I do not understand what you are saying.

    Are the needs of the poor provided for, or is this not about the poor?

    I do not know what you mean by that. I will try to look up a definition in the absence of one being provided. You did not address what I did not understand. That is, are the needs of the poor provided for, or is this not about the poor? Meaning with welfare. This is the opposite of what you said. Are you thinking that meager means are not so meager? Or, are you saying that welfare goes against if you don't work then you don't eat? You are not explaining yourself. I looked up the remedial English reference and I do not believe that it applies to me. I honestly don't know what welfare is and I don't believe I am on it. I believe that if I were to ask it might be possible to be on it, but I do not know what changes would occur.

    Are you claiming any benefits at present? Are you working and also claiming some sort of benefit that you're entitled to? Without specifics it's a bit hard to help. There's nothing wrong with being on them but I'm not sure what your position is here.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    I may have a Social Security income. I do not know what benefits you might be speaking of.

    Well, without wishing to be blunt, you should know if you're on any sort of benefits or not.

    Maybe Social Security has benefits. I do not know. I do not know if I am receiving some kind of assistance or just my Social Security and if that counts.

    Well, if you're out of work and looking for work then the chances are that you are on some sort of benefit. Social security is a form of benefit anyway so are you getting regular payments?

    Aim high; don't settle for a small position if another is open you think you can maybe do. Learned that a little while back
