uhhh? Have you ever been to a grocery store and seen all the scum bags buying high end steaks and expensive foods with their link cards then whipping out cash and buying cartons of ciggs and liqour all the while wearing nicer clothes than I can afford. Yeah, sucks doesn't it. Nothing like seeing some of the jerks scurrying across Schulyer avenue all pimped out in their "bling" on a tuesday about 11:00 when they woke up to go get their check while everybody else is out working.

Then they have the nerve to complain that they don't get enough. Well, instead of that $12 package of steaks maybe you should load up on some $0.98 boxes of stove top stuffing and a large family package of chicken or porkchops. That would go a lot further than one ribeye.

I feel bad for people who ligitamately need the help, but these lazy 3rd generation scumbags that don't know even know that they are taking advantage of the system have to go.

I agree with you that there are people that must depend on the "system" for their needs and I for one feel for them,It just makes me angry to see the ones that use the system when they are getting paid "under the table"for work done and don't report it or the ones that get money for part of their rent perhaps utilities too,and have their lovers living with them and getting money from them too,it's sad that this is going on,I'm not collecting any kind of assistance and struggling while there are "users" that abuse the system,they need to be reported,I'm just trying to find out where/how to go about reporting them.

I have reported a specific person who was selling their undeserved food stamps for money, getting free state aid and claiming dependents she didn't have to the IRS.
Now I find she gets free health care for the kids when her employer and her husbands employer provides for free health care. Is she just stupid or out to scam the world?
It really irritates me that my taxes and donations go to pockets of theives like this and nothing gets done to stop them.
I don't know if Welfare did anything about what I reported the first time or not but probably not since it continues.

This is good.More complaints need to be made.. I think more people should report these scum bags,These people abuse the system.I feel for the people that really have to depend on the system and are not getting the help they need. It's the ones that have the boyfriend that gives them money plus money that they get for food ,rent,utilities etc. and free medical care,all while they have a job,getting paid "under the table". Shame on them..Lets start reporting these people...

you people are foolish.
check the FACTUAL AMOUNTS and understand that these people manage money better than 65% of you 'other' people who go to work and complain about money.

i'm supposed to pay rent.. utilities.. food.. car payment/insurance.. clothes.. and daily condiments (toothpaste,toilet paper) on a punk $600 a month.

some of you people complaining are spending TWICE that amount on rent.
YEAH, you heard me.. RENT

lemme tell you about the dumb asses in the trailer parks who could be buying TWO houses together at the same time instead of paying off a loan on their trailer PLUS lot rent.

my income doesnt come out of the community taxes.. but the way people spend the money, thy theives are the least of the worries compared to the intangible money management.

there simply isnt enough available from the system to actually be considered a thief.
you could be saving $20 bucks on doctor co-pay and whatever the pill co-pay is.
i only get $11 for foodstamps each MONTH
i really dont see how i can be a threatening prospect with such a low amount.

there are more than one way to get assistance, but ya'll talk as if those funds are able to be combined to equal an amount worthwhile for arguement comparing wallet amounts.

any-way you slice it.. the assitance available is enough to pay for food or fun.
there simply isnt enough to pay for both.

and besides the foolish overlooked motive for arguement.. everybody has credentials and the credit system has existed for many years, all the while growing stronger with each financial/unlawful decision made.

if you dont live in high prosperity, you'll know when you try to get a cash advance for a toy or whatever you consider 'fun'.
sure, you could try to find a loan from a buddy or something off the streets.. but you wont gain credit this way, and also your possessions are on the market to be destroyed because of your debt.
not being able to keep up with maintenance, the job of destroying what you DO have is being made easy.

Somewhere in there I do see your point. I hear your frustrations. The reason for mine is that I believe that welfare assistance is needed for many people and I hate to see someone who doesn't really need it but takes advantage of it which in the long run hurts those who really depend on it. The more that is taken advantage of by this person and those like her the less monies for social service programs for the truly needy. And I certainly don't begrudge you your $11 in food stamps even if not gotten ligetimately, if the need is there more power to you.
This person has the welfare mentality that its free money available for those who know how to scam the system. My point is that money needs to go to someone who actually needs it. What about the welfare mothers who have more babies soley for the reason that they get more welfare money for each kid? What kind of a message does this send your children and what kind of way is this to bring up a child? It really is true, I've heard it from their own mouths.
The other reason for my foolish argument when time could be well spent doing something more constructive is that this one is personal. I'm normally not a vindictive person nor one to hold a grudge but this is someone who is not a good person and has hurt, caused harm and destruction upon others who didn't deserve such treatment.
So enough of this, I'm going to go balance my budget now.

There is this person who always come to this country specificly to have her children so they can be american citizen,[on the third child],return to her country and then return a few years later to live off the welfare system,living from shealter to shealter.Keep in mind this person have no form of legal stay here,just the status of the children.Is this right?Are these children really american citizen?I HOPE they send her back before the time the immigration give her run out,because the city will have to shell out more money to keep her and her children here.

Listen I see everyone on Kankakee using there link cards to buy steak and drive off in there caddy. Yes most of them don't have a job and sponge off the government just like my neigbhor. Get free medical card. The list goes on and on. It makes me sick to see and I say something about it very chance I get when I see one being used. It's away of life for that type of person. They are all scum and low life's that don't care about bettering themselves. They always have money for beer, crack, weed it seems like.

I work 80+ hours a week and make damn good money. I have never had a handout and I don't want one. It's a respect thing. People abusing the link cards and all of the free handouts will never amount to anything in life cause they don't want to try to better themselves. These type of people I'm sure voted for Obama as well. Just wait you have not seen shit yet. We are so fucked it's not even funny.

Save your money load your guns and get ready.

you either get loads of money from the link card to pay for eligble items only.. or you get a check that is turned into cash to buy whatever you 'think' you need.

you wanna run your mouth about something 'important' turn to people who drive without car insurance.

by feeding the poor.. we prevent violence and criminal activity.
those same people would have to find a way to stay alive somehow.

i think it is better that the government is taking money from everybody to feed these people, rather than the poor holding a knife to you and demanding money.

you would be in trouble too if somebody took all your money with a knife.
some bills would not get paid and you would go into debt. maybe creditor collections calling you asking for money that you WOULD HAVE had if you hadnt been robbed.

we cant kill the poor, but we can ban certain problematic DNA strings.
we can take 'KNOWN' problematic family last names and offer them an exclusive chance to better themselves.

i believe most people in trouble are not a 'runt' from an otherwise good group of people.
me thinks the entire family is poor and uncapable of helping eachother, which leads to the young ones struggling IN PUBLIC.
the older ones are too busy at work, while the young ones are too busy in school.(cant make any money while you are in school)

i think it is easiest to compare humans with their money as animals and their food.

step one:
there is not enough jobs to support all the people on this earth.
the increase of businesses to accomodate an ever-increasing population is senseless and not efficient.

it is comparable as such when there is not enough vegetation to support the vegetarian species that are then eaten by the meat-eating species.

(it is an extinction event that i am talking about.. and obviously must be avoided)

step two:
i dont know of any animals that refuse to have children because the group is becoming over populated, but we as humans are intelligent enough to stop having children so there is enough resources to fulfill each and every one of us.

i'm glad that kankakee is a great example of an over populated area with a high unemployment rate.
THERE ISNT ENOUGH JOB OPENINGS in the area to provide for such a high number of people.

there are two reasons for this..
1. there are more houses than buildings made for business.
2. the buildings made for businesses that already exist are not big enough to accomodate lots of workers.

IT IS VERY CLEAR..
there are some businesses in the area that are owned and operated by ONE SINGLE PERSON.
and what i'm saying is simple..
the single business owner/operator doesnt PROVIDE an assembly line big enough to support kankakee county.

see.. we have a dozen computer repair shops in the area.
and if those dozen shops got together and united into one business, they would be able to purchase parts AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE because they buy 1,000 pieces instead of only 10 pieces of the same item.
then those savings could be passed along to the customers and we would stop seeing a cheap replacement USB mouse for $12.
that same mouse would be $4 and a much more economical buy for the customer.

the only time you can walk into a small shop and pay decent prices are when the business owner gets supplies together with a large purchaser.
for instance..
say tigerdirect buys 20 cases of a product and the owner of tigerdirect lets his best friend buy 1 case.
the total amount ordered is then 21.
tigerdirects best friend then gets 1 case at a huge discount.

this is known as a GROUP BUY.
you and your friends get together and purchase the same thing with the incentive of getting a price discount.

i blame the small businesses for the high prices and lack of jobs in the area.
are these business owners too selfish or too stubborn or just stupid?

to anybody reading this..
look at candy for an example.
see the price of an individually wrapped package and note the size.
then see the price of a 'family sized' bag and note the size.
it is the same method for people who purchase 1 carton of products compared to people who purchase an entire warehouse PALLET of the same.

obviously if you only want 2 candy bars, purchasing 10,000 candy bars to save some major dollars is stupid.
but if you want to sell candy bars to people, maybe 10,000 is a lot, but you can find help to get rid of those candy bars; or you can sell 5,000 of them to somebody at a discount that is not as great as what you paid, but is cheap enough to move the product and still provide the original purchase to be a 'discount purchase'

this area really sucks at management and economics.
i see people complaining about their job, yet i can look around and find flaws in their management skills.

a recent stay at the local motel6 nets me fifteen(15) complaints!!

it is the person who does the hiring who is in trouble.
the business owner hires supervisors for an entire state.. and then those state supervisors hire local general managers and then those local general managers hire managers to fill 1st shift 2nd shift and 3rd shift.

my situation calls for a person who has been hired and needs to be fired and replaced.
some managers simply give up trying to find proper help.
and that is when their boss should be firing them.. but that doesnt happen often around here, although it should.

often these circumstances never make it to the business owner, and therefore never receive a fix.

I can't help you with getting information in Texas,because I can't even get any information here in Kankakee.. I do wish someone would give information in regards to reporting people that are abusing the welfare system,Kankakee county has "someone" who has an active business and is collecting public assistance.This person needs to be reported..The money being used from welfare is being spent to their benifit and enjoyment,this person has a live in boyfriend that has a full time job plus the business.... there are people that are in serious need in the kankakee county area.Can someone post how/where to complain ?

First of all go to school, take an intro to economics course or something. Your surface deep analysis on poverty seems like you smoke a lot of crack. Your ideas are forged from insanity and ignorance; you donít make any sense at all. The creation of a job is not on the same level of limitations as tangible commodities and resources are- you nescient ignoramus. Meaning the physical realm is the only one affected by scarcity. Anyway the only reason I could stomach your irrational drivel is because of how hilarious it is to read the writings of an individual who is completely full of schit and had the audacity to reply more than once to continue this embarrassment.

I for one recieve link and medical assistance. So wut everyone is saying is that because I recieve this assistance I'm not allowed to eat steak or dress nice? Am I supposed to wear rags to the grocery store. I work a dead end job, and I go to school full time. What I make working is not enough to pay my rent, bills, insurance, and other expences, otherwise I would not need the system. I have pride just like everyone else, I don't like to take handouts, but somtimes you have to tuck your pride in your pocket. If I was not recieving the assistance that I was getting, my children would starve, and we would basically be homeless with no health care. I for one do not sell my link, and I think it is wrong to do so. I have read on here where someone said, something about lazy people. Not everyone on welfare is lazy, some people just have been dealt a tough hand. I have made mistakes in my life and now I am trying to right those mistakes, and while doing so I am on welfare, but I do not think that means that I should only be allowed to eat certain foods or dress a certain way, no I don't think so

Yes I am sick of the link card as well. My neighbor has a link card and medical card for her and her kid I'm sure they get other assistant on housing and utilities as well. The thing that pisses me off is she works a bullshit part time job at a bar for cash, but seems to have enough money for a boob job, two boats, a corvette, a scooter and all the best toys and video games for her kid. I want to report her to the system as well.

i believe that if u r on food stamps u should have to take a drug test. if u fail it u lose your stamps. i am tired of cing people use their stamps and they r drunk when they come into the store drunk and buy the gro with stamps. enough is enough . this is not what it surpose to b used for. its for the elder people and handicap people. when r we going to stand up and say STOP.
