LOL Lord thats the easiest part. Take an EBT card... Find the nearest HS gym... Suspend the card from a rope hanging from the rafters at half court... then line the court with all manner of melee weapons, Have all looking to get foodstamps present their "application" on the day of the event.... Keep all "applicants" outside the double doors on both sides of the gym... Then sound a buzzer, sling open the doors and who ever walks out with the card gets to eat. Killing dozens of birds with just one card.
Take it a step further... Install cameras everywhere, record everything and then air the footage on pay per view with all procedes going to help balance the budget.

Cmon... you know you are all chomping at the bit for this. lets make this happen.
I know you're joking because it's obvious that, if a person is too lazy to work, they certainly won't risk life and limb over food stamps.

Limiting assistance.. accountability.. sterilization for non-compliance.. stricter laws as to who gets..
(I am all for old people getting assistance with living expenses).... all of this must be considered.
The cure is multi-faceted.(Picker, I just included the history of US Welfare to show a bit about how we got into this mess). It wasn't always this way. The cure is coming, whether the welfare child breeders want it or not. There will be children starving in this country sooner or later. People will die.
Now that it is Thanksgiving time, I do recall one of the laws at Jamestown was No Work=No food. It is going to be painful for many to get into compliance with the solution. No one wants to be accountable. However, accountability is inevitable, as picker has so correctly stated.
I remember when people got WPA I think it was called. Most households then had the man as the breadwinner and when he got down on his luck he went to the WPA office with his hat in his hand and had used all means available not to have to do this. He had pride and was basically ashamed that he could no longet support his family and he made sure he did everything possible to get out of that situation ASAP. Now we have made it so sterile that that is the first thing they go to when they are broke. They stand inline talking on a cell phone wearing designer jeans while buying grocery items which I as a working citizen would only splurge on occasionally. Then they take the stamps away and put it all on a card along with their monthly stipend so as to make them feel as though it is something they have earned. They have in place a time limit of benefits but there are ways around that which they use to the maximum benefit for themselves. It sounds cruel but let me put it this way. If you went to the doctor with a sore on your leg and he said it was a case of skin eating bacteria which was growing quickly. The only way to possibly save your life would be to amputate your leg and it had to be done right now, what would a normal, rational person do? Well, let me think about that and I will get back with you later in the week doc.

I find folks, who gripe about others being on welfare, are often mute about the real beneficiaries. For the most part, EBT is spent at places, like Wal-Mart, that profits from not having to pay their workers an adequate wage that would put them above eligibility for that EBT. The Waltons massively benefit from both ends. Make that last-one-standing gladiator match fair and toss the Waltons in too. Put their billions on debit cards and put those cards in their hands. Then, you'd witness a real bloodsport.

I find it amusing that "welfare child breeders" are being blamed here rather than the legislators who have put our present system in place.

Congratulations! Your starting to get the hang of this figurative thing. Maybe one day you will be able to read something and not think but simply KNOW something was intended to be taken as a joke.

Yes, I knew it was meant to be a joke. But, thanks to Poe's law, you can never be too sure.

And who do you think are putting our leaders in place? When it is 50/50 in the vote it doesn't take much to tip the scales.

Just curious.... Do you know for a FACT that the people you see are on public assistance or are you just assuming by appearance? Because I've had cashiers ask me "EBT?" when i would go to use my debit card so they could hit the correct button on their register.(They were Assuming right there) but i mean, are you looking at what card people are using or just guessing? Just curious.:)

If our economy were in full swing and jobs were readily available, with employers seeking full-time workers and providing the benefits to retain those employees, this would be a non issue. Most people receiving public assistance don't want to be in that position.

Bingo!!! It's not and they're not. It has been getting worse for the last 4 years and no hope of getting any better.

People breeding children for a welfare check. You pay the obstetric care ($10,000)) you pay each month for each and every child, you pay for their HUD apartment they live in and deal drugs out of, and let their baby daddies sleep free in, you pay ALL their FOOD, you pay 100% of ALL medical care for each and every one of them, you pay for the education of those children who disrupt the schools with their behaviors, you pay for the correctional officers, probation officers, the juvenile detention centers, and finally the prisons for these offspring...
.WAKE UP AMERICA.
Gay marriage isn't your problem. CHILD BREEDING WORTHLESS BAGS OF SHIT are your problem.
You can say what you want, but that is the 100% truth. And America is being destroyed by this huge cost to working taxpayers.
A working person can barely afford to have a child. Meanwhile these leaches on society are robbing you blind. And you sit back and let gay bashers and moron religious hypocrites tell you how to think. I say: Time to WAKE UP. See the REAL PROBLEM.
Breed a kid you cant afford? BOTH THE MOTHER AND FATHER GET STERILIZED, AND THEY FORFEIT THAT CHILD TO ADOPTION. PERIOD. No "ifs, ands or buts".
Your post is arrogant and uneducated. What is destroying America? The bigger question is what is destroying the world? The devil and his devils that was kicked out of Heaven, they are evil period. Children are a blessing from God, EACH and EVERYONE. Count your blessings that your mom decided to have sex and you was born. And America is not being destroyed by "child breeders". You make me sick saying such things about people. If you want to know the truth, if you can take it, this whole world will be destroyed one day, and not because of precious children being born. It will because of the evil devil and his devils, and the sin they caused by getting Adam and Eve to sin and get kicked out of Heaven. Obviously, your heart is being nagged on by the devil for writing evil words against precious children, and people. Jesus died on the cross for each and everyone, including YOU. Repent, and accept Jesus into your life, while you have time, you never know if you will see tomorrow or not. You might do some research and find out that some famous and successful people have come from the "child breeders" as you call them. If you can't say good things about people, how bout you keep your trap shut.

GIVE ME A BREAK, you MORON. Reagan started this bullshit of breeding babies for cash. Don't blame this on Obama. Your stupidity is showing.
You. on the other hand are a genius and are exactly right. It doesn't happen any more. The numbers of children born into welfare families is not increasing and the number of people on welfare and food stamps has not risen by several million in the last four years. The national debt is being paid off and will probably be a zero balance in the next 4 years. I am so relieved that you enlightened me on things getting better. I am so happy I think I will have a whole can of cat food for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Also glad you stopped blaming everything on Bush. Oh yeah, the stock market zoomed to higher levels since your hero was reelected, shows everyones confidence in him. With just a glimmer of hope in the days leading up to Romney being elected the stock market was inching higher so I am tickled it has kept up the trend.

I don't know why this argument has to be presented on here over and over and over again. But I will say what I've always said: don't hate someone just because they have an EBT card. Unless you know them personally, you have no idea of their circumstances that got them that card. NO idea. The only exception is the rare person who looks like they just got back from the salon, the jeweler and the Audi dealership. Those people who are obviously cheating the system, and I have seen them more than a couple of times, deserve your loathing.

Abortion isn't the fix. You don't get a bigger check for having an abortion. You get a bigger check for breeding a live baby.

People are posting lies. Welfare child birth is not going down. It's sky rocketing.

Welfare breeders are ruining this country.

Twi-tards. They have become so indoctrinated by their cult, sometimes they dont actually realize there are people who dont give a chit who they are or what they are doing and that they arent even on twitter.

They are right up there with the Cult of Jobs, Googlytes and the Servants of Steam with irrational love and devotion.

Lets face it the system has got out of hand and we can not continue to pay for it . Our government encourages this instead of making people accountable. for instance they recieve food stamps to feed their children and they are feed for free at school 2x daily five days a week and now they even are talking about sending them hoe with food to eat on for the weekends . if these people are not taking care of their children take them away for pete sakes. Make girls under 21 live at home
with their parents cause working parents are responsible for their childrens college till that age and most have to go into debt to pay. Make parents more responsible and things will change we cant continue being codependent with these people we need to let them be responsible for their actions and put a stop to this all together . As for men living with women recieving aide each and every case should be investigated and if caught lose their benefits. I mean when you have one woman that has 5 children by the same father he has to be held accountable.
