The best thing to do is ignore Jester and dont feed into his sick and twisted black hole he has on his shoulders. For people that respond to him, you are giving him just what he craves, attention, no matter how you are protraying it. Come on, that is not a normal human being there.

I'm a single mother of 2 and yes w pos father that does not want to help. I work 40 hrs a week and make $12 per hr. could I qualify for link or welfare not sure but probably but I choose not to. When I'm not at my regular job I find other ways to make money whatever I can that does not go against my morals of course. They are my children and it's my responsibility. You do what you have to do for crying outloud! Make your kids proud of what you do for them so they will know what it takes to make a living and not live off of the government. I also beleive that SOME do need to use it but should not make a lifestyle out of it. That only teaches your kids to do the same! Yes I struggle a lot to make ends meet but how do you think I feel knowing I probably would qualify but choose not to and my tax dollars also go to welfare recipients!! Not fair!! I work for my kids not yours! If you have to use it fine but do it to get on your feet and that's it!!! It's rather aggravating to us single moms that don't use it and struggle daily but I want my children to look up to me and hope that they are hard workers as well when they are grown.

Family of 5??? Holy hell. That's part of the problem right there. People shouldn't be having so many kids. And ladies, I would suggest not letting your husbands be the sole breadwinners. Get out and do some kind of work, whether part time or whatever. With the divorce rate in this country, you've got a 50/50 chance you're going to end up on your own someday. Plan ahead so you don't find yourself in a mess when it happens.

you're not the only one in that situation. I think it's hilarious people always assume when someone is on welfare they do nothing but sit at home and eat bon bons. While there are some people who abuse the system, with todays economy many people need help. I've seen families go from having a lot to having nothing with a loss of a job. You cannot predict these things. When something of this nature happens it's okay to reach out for help. I however, do not think people who do not have children and are not elderly should be able to receive link. Todays generation is a lazy one. It's a shame how many people I see say they want/need a job so badly, but not once do you see them apply for a iob.

Just wanted to point out, I work 8.25 an hour and 40 hours a week and have a daughter and use link. I need it to make ends meet right now until I get out of college. Between the previous debt I am paying off from my hospital bills, paying for a newborn, paying a car payment, paying rent/cilco, clothing myself for work and various other things... The 100 I get a month really helps me. Also, not ever is the same. I buy salad, grilled chicken, oatmeal, rice cakes... on and on. I know the majority do it, but don't act like they all do.

It amazes me how the majority of the linkers are divorced or single mothers. I guess America has became the country of let me f&&k up and I will have the government take care of me. It's time to own up to all of the stupid decisions you make and make the deadbeats not the government pay for the problems. Maybe you should let dad bare the burden an the thought process may change.

That is what's wrong. First if your going to school you should be intelligent enough to realize the cost of raising a child far out ways the cost of school. Oh but I forgot the state will pay for the kid. You lazy ass people need to drag you head out of your ass and jump back into reality. What are you going to do when the well dries up and those free hand outs are gone.

Why am i punishrd for some dumb punk kid getting preganant or for some dumb ass cheating the system by not getting married so his girl friend can keep collecting link.

I believe all link card and welfare receivers should be drug tested first!!!! then they should have to do some kind of work to get there free money. instead of laying around looking for a hand out. there is people who work 60 to a 100 hours a week and pay tons of taxes to support the leeches of society. who go buy hundreds of dollars of groceries on a link card then whip out a pocked full of cash to buy cigaretts beer and video games and who knows what else. and its bull shit.
I know that drug testing sounds plausable and totally legit, but that is because you are refering to the adults. You have to remember that there are hundreds of kids who would suffer. I think it should be done like this; how about having to turn in signed receipts for everything you purchase. Then every dollar spent would be backed up with a receipt tha had your signature on it and then public aide could reduce your money the next month for shit you buy that isnt approved. Just an idea.

you're a moron & your idea is stupid!! Lol that would take up to much of the states precious time to even think about doing that. If ppl get help for themselves or their kids,they should be able to buy whatever the hell they want of the kids want!! It's none of your business or anyone else's for that matter.

You people can not put all link card users into one category. there are plenty of people out there who get link benefits that have jobs.and you should watch wat u say because one of these days you may loose your job and need help. and before any dumbass on here asks i do not get link or any other assistance.
I fully agree with you on that. However, a few bad apples will spoil the entire bushel. The link system needs completely overhauled somewhat similar to neighboring states (Iowa for one). Up there, there is a five year life time limit on government assistance and when they instituted it, there was an uproar. Now, sometime later, those folks who were abusers of the system have figured out how to survive without it and it is being used for the purpose that it was intended for, short term assistance.
