Fort McMurray, AB has been burning for over a day now. Some of the pictures and videos make it look like the apocalpyse, or maybe a live version of Fallout.

VinnieFFirst, back that up that it's all eastern people looking for handouts. You can't.
Second, I'm not against the handouts and I'm 100% for helping those who need it.
I just question the need for handouts and why so many seem to require them on an individual basis (IE pre loaded debit card handouts to everyone). I'm getting bombarded with news that everyone has no money. How they have no money is what I'm questioning.
Then you hear money is going to pet rescues. Just leaves a bitter taste that the generosity of the country might be going to save someone's pig who drinks beer (there was an actual story on that)
Then the last reason is that it's rather entertaining to rile people up on the internet and this is the perfect opportunity now that it's past crisis point and really wasn't nearly as bad as originally thought.
Rusticleswere you supporting a family? whole different ball game.
californiagrownTotally agree. A single parent household with kids at that income level needs the money.
A single working adult, or dual income household largely does not. Unfortunately they are all getting the same handout when some need more, and most need none. I'm not a fan of people taking charity when they don't NEED it. Until you are out of options and the ends still don't meet, you aren't in need of charity.
RusticlesYeah that's true, Not sure what the best way to differentiate who needs or not.
californiagrownYeah, it's an easy ethical problem to identify, but nearly impossible to logistically identify on any kind of scale in the real world.
It sucks people feel morally okay taking charity they don't need.
