EBT is a privilege for low-income individuals and families. Not every POOR PERSON IS QUALIFIED FOR EBT. You HAVE to work at minimum a part-time job and earn at least 19,000 a year. EBT is not an enabling right; it is an empowering privilege that, yes, some abuse, but many NEED in order to survive.
As for the ignorant "Need to get a job" comments: you must have a job to qualify. Let's stop being judgemental, stereotypical and prejudiced and allow the government to do their job, which is to aid each individual in their own pursuit of equality, security and wellbeing and stop THINKING we know others situations when we have no clue. I am a very proud working-class citizen, young, of black desent, with no kids and an expanding education and I'm on Stamps as well. And to another point, how do we know the poster is Indian? Pot and Kettle, indeed. End the madness. Maybe someones upset because they can't afford a Beamer, eh? It is an inalienable right to be able to speak our mind, but some people just need to shut the fuck up and stop bitching. Bitching doesn't help the gas prices.
No one deserves EBT benefits from the taxes we pay. If you can't support yourself, that's tough, get 2 jobs as I did when I was younger. The socialist lifestyle is a waste of our tax dollars, and your future. A friend came to my room when I was at UGA and asked what I was having for supper and I replied, "Grits". He asked, "Grits and what?". I said, "Grits, is all I have so that is all I'll eat." I never asked the government for one dime when I was working my way through college, try it, it will instill pride and self reliance in you, and that is something you shall never internalize from EBT or the food stamp programs. I understand you would love for us to stop complaining about your freeloading,(your "education" has taught you to call it bitching) but we still have our Constitutional rights, and shall continue to exercise them. BTW, Americans are tired of supporting you, get a job that will support you so we don't have to do it. Using the "F" word as you were taught in your government funded "education" is not a word to incorporate in a post to enhance your position of influence with others who are paying for your socialist programs. Bless your little heart.

That's the thing you complaining means nothing... I agree with you why probably should be on ebt when you have to... But at the same time if you need help you need help. As I say that I do believe if you on food stamps you should be trying to get off not just settling. And yes you are just bitching!!!! Realize you are going to pay taxes regardless it's not like the government is taking taxes just to put people on these programs... They are taking taxes then they use the money for what they want.. If they get rid of ebt you will still pay the same amount of taxes they will just take the money and use it for something else. Y'all need to start worrying bout yourself and count your blessing because just as God has giving you everything you have he can snatch it away in a blink of an eye

I've had what I owned snatched away because of some adversity, but because I didn't rely on some government assistance to regroup and revive. This is why I am now independent and don't only eat grits as I once did when I couldn't afford anything other than grits. You are responsible for yourself, others owe you nothing. If a person can't afford to go to school don't go or go at night as I had to do at one period during my life while I worked full time and supported myself without any government assistance. Taxpayers are tired of others like the occupiers living off our income. Get a job, vote for a president who is job/business oriented not a person who has been a community organizer.

Read the Constitution and you will find the job of the government is to protect us against foreign intervention, not to provide welfare, EBT, food stamps, Section 8, etc.

Right on Lightered. I managed to make it through university without taking a dime in charity, handouts, food stamps, welfare, or government loans and grants of any kind. I paid my rent, my tuition and all related costs by working the midnight shift as an alarm company dispatcher and on weekends as a loader/warehouseman at a grocery chain. I graduated with not a penny of debt. I donít like fast talkers either and, like you, believe that there are too many people who feel that itís my duty as a taxpayer to pave the way for their success. Let them work for their own success, just as I did. It will be a sweeter achievement if they work for it rather than standing with their hand held out and a look of absolute entitlement on their face.

I want your honest answer to this... You have a lovely family with mom and dad and three kids... Mom is a well respected school teacher and dad is contractor..... Dad get killed in a car accident mom is all alone with three kids and a teacher salary is it wrong for her to ask for govt assistance...... Or you have a college student like yourself that works two jobs but it starts taking a toll on his grades now he is on the edge of failing a class should he keep working or get a little food stamps so he can quit one job spend more time on school and still eat....

You asked and here it is. I ran completely out of money while I was in school so I dropped out between by sophomore and junior years and worked for a year, saved most of what I earned, returned to school, and worked to support myself until my graduation. My folks didn't offer me any money for my college education because they couldn't, but my determination was to go to college, and I would let nothing stop me. I worked on my graduate degree at night while I was employed. Employers were impressed how I worked myself through college, and I never had a problem getting a job. If you want it bad enough you can get it, this is your problem not ours.

I'm sure your dad loved his family to properly insure himself against his death so his family would be provided for. If he paid for SS, you and your siblings received SS assistance. Get to work like your mama you are no better than her. If you are failing maybe college is not for you, and a trade school would be a better choice.

The problem with these programs is the way they are managed. Those managing the programs have allowed so many to take advantage of the programs that tax payers have grown weary of our taxes being wasted on these deadbeats. So many student loan recipients declared bankruptcy to not pay back their loans that Congress had to pass a bill declaring the student loans exempt from bankruptcy laws and must be paid back in full. These deadbeat criminals have killed the proverbial golden goose just as the food stamp, EBT, Section 8, and other programs that were put into place to temporarily help people have been ruined. These deadbeats believe they are entitled to these government programs forever, they even refer to them as "Entitlements" rather than welfare help from hard working taxpaying citizens. My sympathy for these deadbeats has turned to scorn and disdain for their permanent lazy lifestyle.

Omg..its quite pathetic how some people will get on the internet just to bash people. I mean of course everyone has their own opinion and are entitled to it but at the end of the day who really cares..foodstamp, medicaid, and wic program has been around for years and it isnt going anywhere anytime soon. I dont judge the people who receive any type of assistance because obviously dfacs thought they needed it..sure their are ppl who use them to their advantage but guess what theres nothing we can do about it. Thats whats wrong with our country today..we so quick to judge and not help our country..thats why this country is failing. I dont get any assistance but i dont mind helping or paying my tax money to help anybody in need because we as a nation
should stick together.

Two things you said here are absolutely wrong. First of all, saying that "there's nothing we can do about it" is incorrect. By saying nothing we allow people to continue to cheat us. More voices are being heard on this subject and violators are going to jail right now. Our country isn't failing because people point out the failings and crimes of others. It's the people who ignore the crimes or try to hide them in the press because they are committed by minorities that we have most of these problems. Every time we look away and make excuses for minorities, the problem gets worse.

This is America, play by the rules or go to jail. It's that simple.

I love how people always say there are more whites on welfare than Africans in America. Duh. Well whites make up 70% of the current population and used to make up 90% as recently as the middle/late Sixties. While Africans in America only make up 13% and yet I still would HAVE to see some official data/info to even still believe there are more whites on welfare. One of other point I would like to bring up is there are plenty of people with so-called jobs who are basically on welfare. Useless gubmint jobs which require the employee to basically just pick up a paycheck for doing nothing. Go down to your local unemployment office or say the DMV and watch all the standing around done by those magnificent state and federal workers. Another parasitical bunch are our elected officials and Wall St. Banksters like Goldman Sachs who contribute nothing tangible at all but just shuffle papers. Our so-called first lady Moosehell Obongo was said to show up to her former non-job when she felt like it and basically just hold a title that netted her a six figure salary. Moosehell's job was so important that to this day her vacancy still hasn't been filled. From the 300lb ghetto rat to the alcoholic congressman to the money grubbing Jewish bankster, these parasites continue to suck the life blood out of America and send her on her way to ruination.

This little canard gets way too much use without the companion numbers. Say, the percentage of their respective populations. The fact that black and white recipients are almost always within a few points of each other should be an obvious flag. But it was apparently wasted on you.

Otherwise you would realize that 8% of white people being on these government programs is not the same as the nearly 50% of black people on them. Imagine that, almost every other black person you encounter in America is probably on a government assistance program. As a race, that is nothing to cheer about.

Name one first world nation that isn't Asian or White? I rest my case. Blacks, browns, and a good portion of Southeast Asians aren't capable of building or maintaining a first world standard of living. The only way blacks or browns can live in a first world nation is by immigrating to White or Northeast Asian countries. Of course we all know Japan and China aren't nearly as tolerant or a better term would be STUPID enough to commit their own genocide by assimilation with third world malcontents. The West and the indegeneous white population have been targeted by Zionist aka Ziocommie social engineers for decades now and their latest evil deed is genocide by third world nonwhite assimilation. Just as integration was forced upon our educational system, and boy didn't it really work wonders with our public school system, now we're facing forced assimilation. The Zionist social engineers have cleverly helped open the gates for hordes of Muslim invaders to enter Europe and encourage division between Christian Europeans and Arabic Muslims in their traditional divide and conquer strategy. Kind of like killing two birds with one stone since both Christians and Muslims are the Zionists historical enemy. Meanwhile in the good ole USA we're faced with the latrino & Mexcrement "reconquista" which no cowardly politician will dare try to stop. If the Zionist social engineers plan is successful all white nations will be nothing more than a polyglot of mongrelized brown masses and living in third world conditions. YOU CAN'T HAVE A FIRST WORLD NATION WITH A THIRD WORLD POPULATION.

Taking your word that only 8 percent of whites are on welfare(highly unlikely... there's more than that in 3 families in Utah alone)

If you want to get down to the basic numbers of who gets what from the government in "entitlements" let's add in those on SS, those getting miltilary pensions, those getting government pensions, those getting police pensions, those getting retirementment pension, fireman, etc; etc;...

Then it's clear that the "entitlement" money is going in exact percentage to the makeup of the population in this Country.

There's not a wit difference between food stamps and all the other entitlements.

If whites "paid" in and earned their pensions and stuff, so have everybody else.

Just because you lose your job, or can't get a job in a recession, don't negate all those years you did work.

You just need a little of your SS and Pension early.

Why don't you just be honest and admit:

1 A Capatalist system will never employ everybody who wants to work.

2. Employers have a thousand schemes that that use to blacklist Minorities--especially the young--from jobs.

3. This Country uses it's police to deliberately and systematically criminalizes millions of minorities for doing nothing but what everybody in the world does--which is try to get happy once in a while from substances, be it alcohol or MJ.

The list goes on and on.

It's funny, people like you are trying to praise China and Asians now as being on your level.

Before a certain event in history, every single negative thing you say about Blacks, you were saying tenfold about the Chinese.
