ummm I dont follow heavy ppl around or ask them if they are on food stamps but stress and not eating right are factors in being overweight. the eating hotdogs to steak is just silly because hotdogs are crap and will make you fat. being about to afford to eat healthy and go to a gym is why I am not fat... posts like this just make you look jealous of those on foodstamps like really why kinda fucked up I dont want to end up that broke I need foodstamps do you?

You'll change your tune when you're out of a job, and have to be on welfare and get foodstamps to feed yourself, and your family.

No job is 100% secure anymore.

While you're complaining about people having foodstamps, that's all it covers is Food.

You work. You have money for the things you need. You can actually go out to a nice restaurant. Foodstamps do not pay for that luxury. People make the best out of what they've got. For some, it's to have a nice steak dinner.

The people on welfare that you're probably referring to that drive nice cars, etc.. probably are cheating the system. There's actually people who are on the program who need it, and drive clunkers. Maybe they had a nice car, and paid it all off, and lost their job, or whatever and only have money to barely cover the house bills, and not enough for food on the table. Doesn't always mean that they're cheating the system. But it's possible. It could be someone else's car. No one really knows.

Sorry that there isn't an answer to make you feel better.

then they get an Obama phone too.

I freaking can't take it, I feel so for people that have lost their income . Those who year after year remain on the system shouldn't keep getting freebee's ..

The phones arent even a big deal. They get like 60mins a month or something like that. No internet. Depending on the company you signed up with to have a phone with, you can buy minutes, and even upgrade your phone, and I think even get internet.. but it's not free.

Well, someone's panties are all up in a bunch.

You can't get a government phone if you don't have foodstamps. Don't think it costs you extra out of your tax dollars. It's not like it's brand new phones. It's recycled phones. But of course, Anything to bytch and whine about. You'll be thankful for SOMEONE paying for your shit when you lose your job.
Not everyone who's on the program cheats it. You're being narrow minded.

Don't like the taxes? Or the way that the state or the USA tax shyt... get the fawq out.

Very simple: They eat too much and they don't get off their fat @$$e$ and get any exercize. In my town there is a Christian food bank right near the Section 8 housing complex. You can see the welfare leeches lined up at the food bank on an early Saturday morning. Most are fat, most are smoking, some drinking stuff out of paper bags. Your donations at work...

The bigger question is how can women on the public dole can afford weekly manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling; tatoos and piercings; gold and diamond jewelry; designer clothes and shoes; and above all cigarettes and booze and still expect us taxpayers to buy their food too?

A lot of you sound real ignorant. Them people? White people get food Stamps & Medicade also. I have a job I love , support 3 children, & going to school. Do I receive benifits from the government yes. Do I want to continue? No. I agree a lot of people of all ethnicity abuse the system sometimes but there are hard working people like myself that do not. Racism will never end bc of comments like this. You get to hide behind a forum knowing damn well you wouldn't express your thoughts to THOSE people lol..

They don't work, sit at home, watch TV (most likely imbecile shows, daytime junk, etc.) and don't spend energy, their brains become covered with layers of carbohydrates eventually blocking thei rmental ability and turning into pigs.

One fateful day there will be a Night of Long Trees and your EBT card won't save fat flucks sucking blood from my taxes.
We can stage it soon simple:
We STOP paying taxes, your Dear Leader "O" will drown in multi-Trillion debts & will be impeached. Simple :)
We just stop paying taxes, end of good life fo fat flucks

hey Sasha11, how come you made "3 kids", but no education, no good job and have guts to claim your "right" for foodstamps? You made 3 kids, which are likely to growup tobe as stupid as yourself and get on government assitances & make more kids, more, more more until intelligent skillful genetic pool will be swarmed by your kind of apedom Why do I pay for you to make 3 kids? I'd rather spend txes you steal from me, to make 10 of my own kids. This day will come. I'll stop paying taxes & start making women pregnants and then claim "fairness"

You sure are one to throw a stone when your post lacks education in grammar, and spelling in itself.
