It's so very easy to condemn other folks and then try to justify that condemnation with the Bible.
Jamie, the same standard you are throwing up in this other person's face is the same Bible you too are going to be judged about.

If you read, God loves a cheerful giver.

If you read, God hates the proud.

If you read, God tells us that vengeance is His.

If you read, God tells us that none are righteous.

If you read, God says do unto others as you would
have done to you.

If you read, God says to judge no thing before it's
time.

You never know what situation you might be in during your lifetime. You never know when someone
might be on topix belittling you because they saw you having to use EBT.

God also says you reap what you sow.

If it was me, I'd keep that in mind and leave
these people alone now.

Your feelings of compassion for the needy are shared by many.
My compassion is limited to the 10% of EBT recipients that
are truly needy. I have witnessed cashiers in small food
stores ring up $70 in groceries for $35 worth of beer,
cigarettes and cheap blunt cigars. Then accept an EBT swipe
as payment. I know people with good paying jobs, a leased
car and high rent apartments who have EBT cards in their
wallets. The fraud is rampant in this program. It's on every
scammers list by default. 90% is a conservative estimate.
Understanding the reality of a situation is no reason to be
judged inhumane. Lying to yourself isn't noble. It's foolish.

<quoted text>FYI, I eat the best food in the world on my food stamps. Good ole cornbread and milk! If we want a snack, we eat canned biscuit donuts. As for voting, who cares! I never voted in my life and don't ever care too. They are all rich scum anyway. I am disabled and 76 years old, so I don't need birth control. I don't live in public housing either. Some people really need this help. Goverment should help people in the United States instead of other counties that United States should keep their nose out of!
If all the 76 years dumb, and never voted in their life
“citizens” did vote maybe we wouldn't have all the rich
scum holding office.

There is several black woman who hang out in the parking lot at food lion and walmart in morganton selling their 350.00 worth of food stamps for 150.00 each month.If they have kids, how are they feeding them? Probably with the food from the food banks and from selling drugs. The food stamp card should have a picture of them on it so they cant sell it. No one ever cks ID for food stamps.
The food at the food bank at our church is not out dated but it is NOT brand name either. You would not believe the people who complain about the brands! ITS FREE and they want to whine about it. I know of several who used to come load up and then turn around and sell it at the flea market. They hit several food banks and then sold their free stuff.
I agree with who ever said the food stamps should be like they orignially were. Buy the basic's and thats it. NO CHIPS, SODA, ICE CREAM, 80.00 CAKES! If you want this type stuff, get a freaking job!We have supported the freeloaders long enough.There should also be a limit of how long you can receive food stamps for healthy able bodies adults. If you are disable or elderly, no limit. But these 30-40 yr olds who are capable of working should only be allowed to receive food stamps for 6 months then it ends. They have to be taught that the goverment is not going to support them and all their kids. Our grandparents never had the chance to get food stamps even during the depression and they didnt expect the gov. to support them and their kids like these folks do now adays. They knew they had to grow it or starve. Need to teach the free loaders a hard lesson!

I'm not bragging on myself for sure. I've made many mistakes in my life, and not one of them have anything to do with you. You obviously haven't read my post. I didn't claim to be a Christian- that is to say, I haven't claimed anything. But like I said, everything I say is going to piss you off because you are just a mean and hateful person in general. Pathetic, I think, was what I called you. I am, however, happy to help others- and that's not patting myself on the back- its called "returning the favor". Like I said,(obviously you can't read very well), as long as I am alive, I owe someone because others have done for me. Christ died for my sins (which are adding up everytime I see your overated dramatic rants), my mother gave me life, my friends have listened to me, etc. Tell me, Jamie- I didn't see anywhere that you claimed to be a Christian, and yet you are quoting God's word to me left and right. I believe someone else in the Good Book witnessed and quotes scripture, then, sold the Savior out over a buck. Think you should change your name to Judas, Jamie. How sad- but again, I am not trying to convince a hard working, self- preserving rear-end like yourself to change your mind. I'm simply saying mind you own business. Your posts are very entertaining-but I was raised that if I didn't have anything good to say, to stop saying anything- so I am out. I will just go on and follow the rules. Because in reality, your stupidity will one day be your downfall. And no one will care.

If I were lying to myself. Time will tell.
What you speak of is not SNAP/EBT
It is called TANF-temporary assistance to needy families.
SNAP/EBT cannot be used to pay for non food items. Period.
EBT cards programed for TANF can. There are many less people
that receive TANF. Educate, don't hate.

Hope everyone doesn't have to wait much longer for your EBT. The food ministry that I work for has a list of places that give food out every day each week. Crossroads in Lenoir can print you a copy.

Reading all these posts makes me feel sad. I have a very hard time understanding why. Why are most of you posting here so cruel? It's nobody's place here to judge anyone. Your tax dollars? Food should be the last thing you're concerned about. You're lining the politicians pockets, and supporting the upcoming wars with your tax dollars! Out of all that we pay in taxes, food for the poor should be the last thing you're worried about. Do people abuse the system? Yes. I don't know about you but I'm a firm believer in people getting what they deserve, so if y'all would mind your own business and quit worrying about people that you have no business worrying about, you'd probably be a lot better off instead of the miserable cry babies you're all being right now.

It is OUR the taxpayers business when OUR money is going to give people food stamps and they are selling them in the parking lots of stores to get money for beer or drugs. We work to pay our taxes and most of us can not afford to buy 40.00 pks of steaks. And while we are in line waiting to pay for our beans and taters with cash, we get to watch someone buy tons of junk food, sodas and steaks and pay for it all with food stamps.Thats kinda a slap in the face for us who work to pay for the food stamps they are using to buy this stuff and we cant afford one pack of hamburger. So IT IS EVERYONE BUSINESS !

I've added a petition at change.org .

As listed in the petition, I have been supporting an elderly neighbor but no longer to do so. She has gone without for 3+ months with no response from our local DSS during that time. Not even a confirmation that they have received her certification form.

Someone has to stand up for the poor and needy.

I certainly agree with you 100%. We have to show ID for everything else. If you have a Sam's card your picture is on the back. I remember hearing my Grandpa talking about "The Hoover Times". There were no soup lines here in these mountains and even if there had been he said he would have rather jumped in the French Broad in the dead of winter after a water dog. Hell there are way too many squirrels that visit my bird feeders for me to starve to death. People need to get back to basics and learn how to be self reliant. Don't get me wrong I am a Democrat but it seems to me that the ones who need help can't get it and those who don't get more than a fair share.

Yup take a moment and GlOSS over that .
I just want to take one moment to applaud the fact that even being young and I'm sure not prepared to be a mother she has stepped up and became a mother instead of just giving the children up, no one wants to think about things like that they only want to judge and put people down, shame on those of you looking down on this girl.

<quoted text>Who the hell are you to complain about off brand or processed friggin food, if you are unable to buy what you want then take what the hell you get. It should be illegal to purchase name brand food with food stamps in the first place. I work two damn jobs to make ends meet, BUY my groceries. I have to bargain shop and buy off brands so should anyone receiving EBT. Sick of seeing people at the store getting 300 dollars worth of free name brand groceries, steaks, ice cream and sodas only to pay cash for damn beer and cigs then go get in a nearly new car.
ha ha poor u I guess it sucks to be you how sorry do you have to be to work 2 jobs and still bargain shop maybe you should focus on getting one decent job instead of complaining about everyone else you sound like a true republican and if it makes you feel better when I get my food stamps ill go out and get a lot of the best brand name food I can get and I'll think about you while I'm eating it good luck with your generic food and by the way it's people like you that are making this country so pathetic

It's bad enough struggling to find a place for my 12yr old girl & I to live. Plus lost job due to law removing my tags for not paying insurance so i could buy us food! So it was either lose car & job or let my little girl starve. So I sacrificed a lot. Been to churches & salvation army but no meats or drinks. All I know is benefits were supposed to go on the 9th still waiting! No calls back from DSS workers or there supervisors.. It would be nice if someone would let us know when the EBT benefits will go on.(Burlington NC).

Because meat provides nutrients and minerals kids need for growth. Wow- now bashing because someone wants to eat meat. What if she didnt want to wear tampons- because of the environment? You would want to force that issue. How pathetic some of you people are. I hope there is a God- and I hope you rot in HEll.
