The poor are smart enough to game the system as much as I do, and I spend a lot of my time doing it.

The "welfare queen" is merely responding to the stupid incentives of the system. The system pays well for breeding and some women smartly respond to the incentive. I know I arrange to take all the unemployment compensation, affirmative action benefits and tax benefits I am "entitled" to. It is the socialists and their stupid policies that are to be condemned, not the person who merely responds to stupid incentives.
