The only thing that will "yirbu" will be the cost of food stamps, welfare payments and all sorts of subsidies. What this article doesn't say is that the ehrlich yidden of KJ have the largest welfare dependency of any part of the state

Anyplace where someone else pays your bills is a "nice place for a chusit to live".

How do you measure "success"? If you push on to others your own responsibility to care for your mishapacha how can you call that "successful"? I would also be happy a very happy yid and very content if someone else helped me to pay my rent and grocery bills.

Yes ther are many poor families in frum community but most of them are hard working people. You distance yourself from them by picturing them as parasites. thats the meaning of your post basically. They are not. A specially those poor ones. I guess that this is not only one difference between you and them.
When did you read any Mussar Seifer last time?

Granted that there are many hardworking poor people in KJ.
But you seem to over look the reason why they are poor - the lack of any serious education. No education means no profession or decent salary. I forgot that they are too busy fightening with the other group to even bother with real issues.

Not true. They are not poor because of lack of education. They find jobs that pay them according to their qualification as you do. They live a less costly lifestyle so the can cover it with their income accordingly. Their tuition if cheaper, they don't need $150,000 for a wedding, and not 10,000 for summer camp. If fact, they are not poor at all, Ýou must be misinformed. They have a lot of rich people who help out each other. They have a lot of hardworking people who work hard from morning to night. Yes they have a small number of poor people which is normal in every community. It is obviously overstated by the goyishe media and it seems that they found an OYZAN KASHAVAS by you. If you are of a decent personality you'll accept my words, if not, sorry for my atempt to educate you.

fourty million, that's 40,000,000 people are on food stamps in the united states, and you are busy trashing the few thousand, you are a self hating jew

The fact that forty million people are on food stamps is not part of the argument. I, for one, would like to know what percentage of people in kj are. If this makes me a self hating Jew fine, but there are questions that should be answered.
I would also like to know how large the families are and how many people work. I do not mind paying taxes for people who try to make ends meet but are unable to. That is what government is for. It is interesting that the more right wing commentators are not here to state how they feel their taxes are being misused on the poor.
