A Michigan man who won $2 million in a state lottery game continues to collect food stamps 11 months after striking it rich.

Character must be at an all-time low in this country. The attitude that everyone owes a person is at an all-time high. "I am going to get what's mine, whether I earned it or not" is a value that has been proliferated by government.
