People of all colors are using Food Stamps today! Doesn't anyone on here realize that the economy is bad and people are hurting for money? If anything, the Food Stamp program really needs to be expanded now.

1. heres my pic.
2. this isnt about big business, at least they work.
3. if it was about big business i would say that it is wholely unfair that the weatlhiest few get the biggest tax breaks.
4. i would also mention that Income Tax was supposed to be reppealed ages ago after the Civil War, but the gov. decided it was a cash cow and alot easier to take the money from the people than to be sound at spending what money they had. funny didnt we Leave England because of just this very thing?

Fine feed the so called poor! However limit it to one child!

If they happen upon bad luck as a family of 4 thats ok too as a temporary aid.

But the young ones who pop out babies irresponsibly so they can use the kids as a way to make money...well enact limits...1 child to qaulify for food stamps.PERIOD!

If u arent working because u are lazy..then u suffer. Not those who are working!

Once again, I wanna thank all you hard workin taxpayers for financing my Super Bowl party.

Those stamps really helped my put out a real top notch spread, everything from nachos to crab cakes to lobster. The best part about is the Food Stamp Program doesn't care what kind of food ya buy. You can not work and still eat lobster!

I just love this country!

Why aren't the tax free religious entities creating more jobs? They've enjoyed the benefits of a tax free existence since this Country was founded. Where are the jobs?

Dump the food stamp program and go back to the USDA commodity program where you you went down in person and got flour,corn meal,oil,canned meat,butter, rice,sugar,peanut butter and basics to sustain your family. If you got caught swapping your rations for cigs and beer,you lost your freebies. At the same time,the recipient could be screened for drug use. The taxpayers are tired of able bodied freeloaders sitting on their duff eating well and not working. You can vent your fustrations all day long on this forum but it's not doing any good. Vent your feelings to your elected officials in Washington in a "from the heart" personal letter. You pay these people to work for you,let them know how you feel. Peace!

It's a good thing the retailers are makin their employees work on Thanksgivin night. That means mo money in the government coffers which means more food stamps for me!

I need more stamps to put on my traditional holiday spread. Since prices have gone up, you workin Americans need to put in mo hours to support me. Plus my government sponsered cell phone is alomost outta minutes and my Section 8 monthly housing rent is due.

I keep workin harder on my XBox all day long so y'all work harder so I can take the next 365 days off.

I'll save ya a turkey leg.

The highest percentage of people on foodstamps per county are all in red states. Just like obesity, stds, traffic fatalitiies, and poverty. Thankfully iq points and education are the lowest in the nation amongst red states so they'll never learn who the real leeches of society are. And the division goes on. Half the country into 2013 the other half 1863.

Big pompous rich men musicians, and actors, created severla large small nation preteneding to be king, creating a flop house scenerio, and when they tire of fmaily or friend, kicking them out the door, taking away all the life possessions as they would have had nothing, then saying run and shootin gtresspasser prior to it reaching land marker to public territory.

I dont want to here this crap, military state wrokers, everyone has food stamps, homes bought, cars bought, reimbursement on damage or mielage free 401K and retiremnt and other.

Someone did not make the room to be killed or on some strangers insurence plan and then they get sick and die or in accidents as their bosses family play for the dumb aszes death for a life insurence payoff they made at the bank with the local doctor defecting your personal cares and refusing yor medications for pain and other for you to try sucide to eliminate pain from their friend barring you access to your right to medications for no pain or tolerence control.

The real issue is EACH USA CITIZEN FORM THE TIME OF THEIR BIRTH gets over $2100 a month for life, plus interest. Hosuing is substadised and you can take on a job or apply for small buisiness start up grants or loans, or funds contingent with a genetic birth defect or blood disorder or other disabilities as well.

All supposed to be mailed to yoru home. Nobody wanted yo to have it so allocated it to places like concert for all, neighborhood associations, and you have a wish list to fill out, they buy it with yor money and if you go to the center you can use it too.

Just go to Washington and order form Secertary a overall life suit audit and federal accoutnabilty review, 2 weeks of medical dr appoints, 2 small review hearing of 10-20 minutes and the last is 30 minutes, all your money audited from most all nations and lands given to you in a sizable sum, with deductions form your crime you leave a welathy person beyond belief and revenue is all your emaisl and phone calls and statements and records SOMEONE stole for their own persoanl gain, they go to prison and you go in a gag restraint colony for 2 years.

And for further informaiton go to a nursing home that does everyone food trays, that IS the legal food consumption for a adult on a daily basis, they drop weight so fast in first 2 months, 100 plus pounds for most all. Then they indicate demensia or alzhiemers, NO it is not, mild tranq or 5 mg valium will suffice, mucus membranes from weight loss will have you tearing at your face thinking bugs or spiders under the skin, calm down grannies, AND it is NORMAL BRAIN FUNCTION to down load your life process form 20-0 and then restablise again, a good loveling family that is honest so you can care for that 3 month weird period to restabalise is warrented MALPRACTICE all over the board, but convelesent will try to kill you to remove one of these cases THEY EXEMPTED FAMILY POLICIES and took out a huge settlement for their own policy once the person got checked in.

Meaning to prematurely put anyone in hospital psych ward or prison is not to your benenfit when the institutions can prove you spent no time with person they did so you go to prison for attmepting a fraudulant settlement policy on your family memebers life NOW>
