Army Emergency Relief Fund

There’s this fund in the Army that soldier can donate money into that assists other soldiers who are in desperate need of emergency funds. This sound likes a great idea but in practice, it is a complete waste. The only people that dip into these funds are financially irresponsible and can’t balance a budget, let alone know what a budget is, to save their life. They have to have the newest phone, the biggest TV, the most expensive Direct TV plan, and a brand new car but when a family member suddenly passes away (bless their heart), they have absolutely no savings and need money from other soldier (who make jack shit) to get home to be with their family. It’s completely retarded but then again, this is America, and its full of dumbasses.

Well, that seems kind of sad, but I bet it helps a few unlucky guys.

Here in the UK, there are also benefit frauds. It's sad really.

Sounds like a lot of attempts to help the "needy". It generally doesn't go to those that need. :/

LOL. Generalizing, but yeah I can see how that would happen.

This country is wayyy too wasteful. People spend like idiots, but I don't think we should blame the sheep. Blame the herder, and the sheep for not recognizing their sheepness, I guess. xD
