I know this is gonna start an argument, but I think it's bs to give everyone extra food stamps to cover what was lost in the storm, and its based on honesty!! The storm was on June 29, I doubt many people had much left at that point anyway! I work and lost food, who wants to replace it? Oh wait, I'll have to do it and mess up my budget. The news also says that people spend their foodstamps wisely! Haha what a joke. They always have carts piled with all kinds of novelty foods, cereals, candy, little Debbie cakes and Pepsi. You all know what I mean, no one paying cash overflows a cart with crap the way they do!

I am completely with you. I over heard a girl at walmart telling her friend she filled out the form znd put $200 but they gave her 2 months worth on her card.
I would never want anyone to go hungry but this is BS!!

. I saw on the news Wic is doing the same if that's the case the state should send every person in wv 200 that would be fair I lost a lot and have no one seeding me free money to help get it back

If you work for a living, you shouldn't look for a handout. Let's just keep our nose to the grindstone and support the "unable" and "tired".

Come on MIDDLE MAN!(says loudly while cracking the whip).

This is what happens when folks vote for these worthless democrats who started all these FREEBIES with fdr years ago and up to obama today. Are you ever gonna learn the democrats are for the nonworking man and always have been but lie and say their for the working man? You wv folks must like to give money away because its been 80 years of democratic rule. Any lessons learned yet? No. It will be the same bs in november come election time.

I have to agree this is total BS. The people that have to work for a living not only have to pay to replace our own food but now also have to pay to replace food for the ones that are to lazy to get a job and pay for there own food. What a crock

FEMA is helping those of us that do work!! I believe the elderly, mentally challenged, and those who deserve the foodstamp reimbursement should get it!! Not the ones who abuse the system or sale their foodstamps!!

problem is that they don't distinguish between them... most people I know who get foodstamps are just too lazy to work. One gal has a 2 yr old child, tries to get pregnant all the time with the same guy who won't/doesn't support the one she has and she won't take him for child support because he says he will NOT have anything to do with her if she does that to him! She's dumb as hell, but lives with her mom and dad, who also get checks, and the girl gets her social security now because she missed so much school due to asthma! HONEST! She got a high school diploma but says because she fell off a porch and broke her foot a yr ago that she can't stand for too long. Yet she WALKS the road constantly visiting people and strolling the kid looking for the damn daddy who she loves with all her heart (taken from her facebook)! It makes me so mad to hear this shit over and over again because those of us who work also have it hard! This girl gets $800 soc sec check, foodstamps, WIC, is getting a hud paid apartment and they will buy some of her furniture for her when she moves in! If she had her license they will also help get her a car "for transportation of the baby". Blows my mind how our government spends our damn taxes. I really don't mind helping people who have a legitimate reason not to work, but MOST of this is just total bullshit!

Hate to break it to ya on Topix, but you're not gonna get shit from FEMA unless your house was totally destroyed. They don't reimburse for food etc......

I have enough money to replace everyone in WV's food! I'm here now handing out the Benjamin's to the possums! At least now all of the food stamp recipients can get more pills/crack/meth when they sell (loan out) their ebt cards out for half the value in cash that's added back to the card! Call it a cash bonus based on honesty. LMAO. They said on the news the people are honest! haha EVERY SINGLE PERSON I KNOW THAT GETS A FOOD STAMP CARD SELLS THEM FOR CASH!
not right

Also the ones who do work at places and get pd 3 to 4 hundred dollars a week cash under the table still cheat the system. I know of ppl who do it and get EBT cards for food, medical bills pd for and probably ck in the winter for heating their home while the spouse or gf works small job or draws a small SSI ck. Now that is cheating the system and they live better than most working ppl.

I am so glad to read everyone's statement & that you all agree with me. I was beyond furious to know that food stamps were gonna be reimbursed. I totally understand if you're truly disabled, elderly, or even if you do work but still need some help, but like everyone else has said already, most food stampers are lazy a$$es who don't wanna work, holler hogs or ghetto queens who just spit kids out left & right to get benefits. I think if you can't take care of your kids, you should be sterilized or have them taken away. Get a damn job!! Those of us that do work, can't afford food cuz all of our tax money goes to help the lazy!! This system is so jacked up. We should all protest!!

Let some of us know who these people are who sell their stamps so us hard workin folks can get discounted groceries! 50 cents on the dollar! They can drug overdose for all I care, the system is gettin played as it is, why not play it ourselves. GO WORKING MAN/WOMAN!!!!

I agree. We lost all of our food too, got our power back, went to the store this past Saturday, and damned if the wind didn't blow & knock out the power AGAIN for 24 hours, destroying the food I'd just bought.

Now bills will have to go unpaid so we can have food.

BULL SHIT.

So glad you reminded me. Here's what happens with the gal I know. Her guy gets a phone, too, and they get into fights all the time and break each others phones, throw them, stomp on them, etc. They go back after a couple days and tell some b.s. story like she laid it on top her moms car and forgot about it and her mom drove off and she can't find it. Her boyfriend goes a few days later and says someone stole his out of his trailer (dump)! They got new phones! I honestly want to beat the shit out of them when I hear this stuff! Utilities are paid for, churches give them food, clothes, and financial help for utilities, too, because churches TRUST people! They aren't my friends but because we know mutual people I hear about it, too, and believe it or not, she even puts this shit on her facebook. Not one ounce of shame to have never worked a single day in her life. You see her out clubbing on the weekends, dancing up a shine with that broken down foot of hers. Her mom and dad keep the kid ALL THE TIME, sort of enabling her to do this kind of stuff. It is a rotten thing the government does to those of us who work and pay taxes...

the storm happen the 29th and if im not mistaken food stamps replenish the first several days of the month,so WTF would they need reimbursed? I know most people on welfare are idiots but i highly doubt they are gonna go buy a bunch of groceries when th powers out. People wonder why our country's in debt. What about the working taxpayers whos homeowners dont cover food spoiled from a outage? Whos helping them out? CNN was at the kanawha city cooling center last week interviewing people and you see 400lb obese women saying they haven't ate anything in days and was starving about to pass out,it was the most absurd bs. If you lay around on welfare and refuse to work,you get free housing,free food,free transportation,free clothes,free cell phone,health care ect ect. the government will take care of everything. But if you do the right thing and work pay your bills and barely scrape by th could care less about helping you.I'm so sick of this system. the state should ban certain things for food stamps,Soda,cakes,candy bars,donuts,energy drinks,cookies,junk food. the cell phones should be banned.Welfare should make women sign an agreement saying in order to receive welfare you must stay on birth control and not have anymore babies while getting benefit,they must either enroll in classes and regularly attend or work.(unless thy are physically or mentally unable to) if they havent enrolled in school or got a job in 6 months,1st offense kicked off for 30 days,2nd offense 90days 3rd offense 1 year.
