A Guide for Getting and Keeping Your Welfare Entitlements

By Joseph K. Waltenbaugh

A lighthearted, almost farcical, representation of the entitlement culture in the form of a "how-to" or "self-help" guide for scamming the American welfare system. It lays bare the techniques and motivations of the entitlement subculture, and it skewers all the sacred welfare cows ... and elephants. No preaching, just some disturbing truths sandwiched in among the humorous stories and unique characters.
