its just sad you ppl are even talking about wendell like this. his wife does not make killer money at csc. they don't pay very well that's why she does the flower job on the side. as far as I know whe doesn't work at the school . she works at csc full time and helps take care of her grandkids when she's off work. as for wendell I've onlt heard good things about him. u can get foodstamps for yourself. without anyone in your household being counted. if u qualify. maybe he drinks a lot of pop. maybe he's smart enough to buy it a ton for it. anyway its none of ur business. id like to see what u buy with your food stamps.
It is everybody's buisiness stupid we pay taxes !!! So all those deadbeat bastards need to get a job
Just wondering

Please don't judge people just because they have a f.s.card. I work full time, am neat and clean, sometime carry a Coach purse, ( fake ) , that I got at a yard sale. I use a food stamp card often, but it belongs to a family member that is not able to get out much and I do their shopping for them. So please don't judge a book by its cover.

saddened... i work and pay taxes too. and i know plenty of people who need food stamps and use them right. it's nobody's business what somebody buys with their foodstamps. the only way to stop the people who abuse them is to cut everyone off. i can see alot of old people dying off then. unless you spend all your time with wendell.... see what he buys and what he eats and go with him everywhere he goes. you people should just chill out.

NO, because I earn my money, not one single/group of tax payers buys anything for me & I don't think we should pay for junk food when anyone is on food stamps. I do not have a problem helping people with food, however I do have a problem with food stamp people buying junk food, as well as being on food stamps from one generation after another.
Also, I just found out people on food stamps that can get cash from their food cards can buy cigs, gas, anything that want, now that is total BS.

You do realize that all those Grants, Funds and Aid that go to Frankfort come from the Federal Government, The Federal Government get that money from working folk... So YES.. Every Tax Payer pays for Every Dime spent of Food Cards... Last Year the Tax Payers of the US paid 80 Billion Dollars in Food Stamps...

Since only 52% of Americans pay income taxes that comes to 157 Million people... Do the Math... Each Tax Payer is paying $509.00 a Year for Your Food Stamps....

well, for one thing, you are not as smart as you try to think you are because i dont get food stamps. i work and pay taxes. no, they dont pay for every dime. each person that pays any taxes act like they are better than people that recieve government help. dont you draw a check big Q. There is no way you could work because you post on EVERY topic on here and have to make ur post so long and boring pepl dont read half of what you say. sooo since i work and pay taxes, i guess i pay for every penny of your check out of my pocket. im happy to help out people that need it. i know every penny i pay in taxes dont go solely to food stamps is what i was saying. you are in on every forum. how do u get the time to do this day and night if u are working?

The United States is losing tax money due to people keeping their money in other countries! It's not millions we are losing but trillions on taxes!

I call Bull Sh!T... total in the World there is 15 to 20 Trillion held in off shore accounts... A Very large percentage of that is from the Middle East but also Russia, China, Britain and all other countries... Of that around 2 Trillion is from US Sources, Of that 500 Billion is from Investment portfolios with 10's of 1000's of Individual Investors holding stock options.... Of that 1.5 T left much is from Criminal Activities such as drugs, organized crime, and other sources that would never be taxed as it comes from an underground economy... Of what is left it would be taxed at rate so it would be maybe several billion, if the holders didn't have good tax lawyers, in actual Tax Revenue to the US Government... And it would be a one time gain... As the following year those that had the funds taken would stop doing so and go to another country where they could continue finding ways to keep their money... Losing the US the tax revenue from that portion of their money that was being captured by the tax system... You would see a larger drop in revenue the next year and a large jump in unemployment rate... Good examples of this abound... I'll take Detroit simple because I used to live there... They raised taxes, they have been a bastion of Social Justice since the 60's ... If your positions were valid Detroit should be a shining light on the hill... They attempted to tax the rich to help the poor... The rich left, The poor stayed... The situation now has caused a rate of Actual unemployment of around 27% with a Fake Rate of around 9.5%,,, I say Fake rate because it does not account for those that have stopped looking for work or working part time... But it also does not take into account a 40% drop in population so the unemployment numbers don't give the real over view... Less people gives a skewed view of unemployment numbers...

A drive through the Socialist Experiment that was Detroit and it's stunning... Entire neighborhoods have been wiped off the map, buildings falling down, weed fields where yards were and children played...over 60% of the population receives most of it's livelihood from the Federal or State Governments..

The Rich have the wherewithal to Leave... Without the "Rich" the Poor starve and the Middle Class become the new poor...

Actually I don't, I acquire info from all kinds of sources... Left, Right and right down the middle then I consider all the information, Toss out that which makes little to no sense, Form my own views based on what I can verify and what I can't....

What I don't do is rely on one sided political dogma and feel little tingles run up my leg to form my world view....
