An Irish emigrant has been jailed for orchestrating a massive social welfare fraud across the border counties – while living it up in Thailand.

Paul Murray swindled the Irish taxpayer out of half a million dollars using nine different names in an elaborate international hoax.

The 63-year-old emigrated to Thailand in the 1970s but returned home every three months to collect his fraudulent social welfare payments.

Interesting.

The gang known as the State of Florida wants to test welfare recipients for illegal drugs.

Here’s an idea. DNA test all welfare recipients to establish identity.

Here’s another. Eliminate the dole. Period.

The Gooferment: Immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. In example after example.

Let’s use technology to solve problems?
