If you think the government will stand by their word and take really good care of you, just remember how well they took care of the Native American Indians. Makes me feel safe.

If you are able to work and wont..then starve, When you get hungry enough, you will find work. If your family suffers then its on you, no one else.

Got to church more than when you broke, from buying meth and junk. Get a job and stick with it longer than crying because you didn't get a raise. Stop the cycle of I am on welfare because my mommy was. Dress like you are more than trash. Raise your kids with respect for others so they will have something to look forward to other than stamps and hud. and last get off here if you don't have a job..

Why are you all worried. You're not going to have to work, or move, or swing a stick at a snake. Have'nt you heard. Obama is in for 4 more.

your the only fool on here besides the so called The Specialist
i can barely walk yet i am out trying to do right by my family

Whom ever you are, My Heart & prayers go out to you. I too know what it means to be sick & not be able to just set back & Not work. I have been in & out of the Hospitals so many times, God only knows what I owe. My Husband works 2 jobs & only brings home under $1,000.00 a month. We pay a vehicle payment, Insurance & his chils support. With what we have left we pay Bills & try to buy food. It's tough & we don't apply for food stamps because we feel that others need it more than we do! People who call people Lazy A-- es, you just don't know how tough it is on people sometimes! May God never place you in a position that you have to face this situation yourself. Or should I pray that God does let you go through some tough times, so you will have more Compassion & have a Humble heart towards others. God Bless you whom ever you are that doesn't give up & tries to care for your Family... May God shine Favor down upon you... Much Love, Many Prayers...God Bless you !!!

You are nuts.For one You can not own a new car and get foodstamps go try it and see they will turn you down.And they are people who really draw ssi that does deserve it.The ones who needs cut off is these drug heads.Not the truly disabled.They need to start drug testing and if you test positive for drugs and do not have a doctor saying you medically need them then your stamps and ssi should be cut off.

Btw I work everyday n drive 32 miles one way. I don't get any government help. Why should you get help and I can't??

Well ya know *local*...back in my day ..It took both my husband and I working to raise our kids...and if need be.. on his 2 days off from his regular job ..he'd work a second job..oh YES we were tired and would have enjoyed more time off for fun stuff...but we knew that wouldn't pay the bills..and we NEVER once ask for a hand out..Nor did we ever whine about it! So instead of calling this town names..how about getting out there and working some more ..suck it up and stop whinning about what you don't have !!

Stop crying I'm layed off atm and drawing 1100 a month, no food stamps, health care about to get cut off with 0 government support. These people sit on their butts all day and complain about free medical care, free food ect. Only thing the government doesn't give the lazy is a nice big house but besides that you eat like kings, can go to the doctor every time you sneeze and sit around doing nothing.

Most poor people are poor by choice. They refuse to do anything better in their lives. They get comfortable, and are afraid of change. They are also afraid of challenging their selves. That's why they settle with just getting by, and in a small town like Barbourville, they decide to live off government assistance. I Think that just cutting down how much assistance people receive is not the way to go. In this city they just need to drug test every one receiving these benefits. That would filter out about 90% of the ones receiving it.

Most people are also very lazy. I see so many people with kids quit a job because of foolish pride. If you find a job keep it. At least until you find some thing better. Don't quit out of anger and make your family go without.

I also hate how people use "real" elderly, disabled and children just to get a nice tax refund, and receive government assistance and set at home eating and playing video games instead of working. They get these poor people checks or EBT...foodstamps how sad...

I don't see why people decide to live on a 600 to 800 dollar check, and a few food stamps. They could work and make much more, and earn it....Oh and not to mention have something to show for it. Maybe ACTUALLY own their own home, and properties.
I agree

Depends on if people have land to grow crops. I see where you are getting at though. I have land, but most people don't anymore. I would suggest people start buying can foods, and cooking at home. Its much cheaper. Oh, and people should put back money and not put every cent in the bank. If we go through anything similar to the great depression banks will freeze account. I am putting half my tax refund away, and out of the banks ability to freeze it. Haha, I might just be 27 but I have done quite a bit of research. I plan on using my land to help all my family and friends if it ever get that bad. My dad taught me all I need to know about growing crops, and raising chicken, and using their eggs. I also was taught how to hunt, and not just with guns but traps. So yep! haha Good suggestions though. If any one lives in a hollow they can grow cops, and if they live in town they can store can foods, and grow indoor veggies.:)

Food stamps are also a supplement! It is called SNAP (SUPPLEMENTAL nutrition assistance program). To supplement low income. The government can't AFFORD not to count SSI. It is income! So it counts.
