11. Same here. My BFF complained about

All those people getting govt assistance. She asked if it was really 40%. I told her that it might be when you include Everyone getting a govt check, including Retired Military (her), retirees, disabled people, including disabled veterans, not just welfare and not just food stamp recipients.

BTW, I don't judge how people "deserve" their govt check, whether it was because of a contract with the govt to put in 20 years, or through FICA. It's not my place to judge every case of someone on public assistance and whether they already supported the system with earlier tax dollars. She, however, is inclined to judge.

Our decades old friendship is at risk.
