Ironic you would say this, because out of the 10 or so people I personally know who are on assistance, 8 of them of diehard Republicans who seem to think that nobody deserves food stamps except them. Most of them are also drawing disability for BS "medical conditions." And even though they benefit from welfare, they keep voting for people who are against it because they're too dumb to know how politics work.
sorta funny how in one breath democrats say republicans are the 1%ers and just helping themselves ( the rich), and now most welfare recepiants are republican. So which is it9

Wow I was just looking at this and how many ignorant and judgemental people there are. My family recieves foods stamps and I think we have earned the right to have birthday cake or deli meats etc. We're on food stamps because my husband hasn't worked his way up in rank yet to where we can afford to live in the area we've been stationed at. I think our family more than pays back our debt for food stamps. So next time you want to judge someone using foodstamps think for a moment that the mother your looking at may have sacrificed her career and stayed at home to offer her children stability and support while daddy is gone for almost a year. And think maybe this whole family is doing without because they fully support your right to be be judgemental, ignorant and run your mouth. Whether they like it or not they are all sacrificing their happiness for your rights. Damn maybe they do deserve a birthday cake for their child even if they can't afford it...

You chose to sacrifice your career. When you have children, that is the decision you make, not the rest of us. Any family, regardless is you're married to the military, police force, firefighters, machinest, mechanic, nurse, etc, it makes no difference. If you qualify, you qualify. Why would anyone care who you're married to? I don't think it's anyone's business as long as you meet the requirements to receive help, it's all good and why you require them is your business. My son is in the military and my daughter in law doesn't act like everyone should be grateful to her and her situation. She chose to work to help out while raising three children. I love her great upbeat attitude and am lucky to have her in the family. And she makes each child's birthday cake. That doesn't make her a better mother, she just insists on a homemade cake, so whatever works for you, then that is what you should do.

You can buy many wine foods with foodstamps generally party items, not sustanance. You can purchase gourmet cheeses and the overpriced,smaller bottles of colddrinks near the register that have been marked up for spur of the moment purchasers.

You know what?
I don't care.

I'm sick of people using the "I'm in the military" thing as an excuse for feeling entitled or being a piece of crap. I just accepted an entry level position for a firm in California that will pay $60,000 starting in an area where rent is $5000+ per month. As an IT specialist/software engineer, I am contributing just as much to society as your soldier husband and possibly more if I transfer over into a position that contracts for the US government and armed forces.

Where's my food stamps? At least you'll be set with lifetime health insurance and all the other bells and whistles that come with enlisting these days regardless of whether or not he ever sees a day in combat. At least he's guaranteed a decent salary in time and then gets to milk his military status for jobs that he isn't qualified for once he re-enters the private sector.

You said everything I was going to. Thanks.

My wife and I are BOTH in the military and we have never used food stamps. We budget. We didn't have kids we couldn't afford. We built up decent savings while in college.

I'm sick of these army wives and husbands who married into the forces acting like they're the ones with the badge on their sleeve. I didn't go into the Army for bragging rights. I didn't go into the Army to feel important. I didn't even really go in because I felt like it was my duty. I went into the Army because it's a job that is right for me. We are not more deserving of ANYTHING than anybody else.

I respect anybody who works by the sweat of their brow to provide for their communities. The farmers who grow our food. The nurses and doctors who save lives. The police, fire fighters, and paramedics/EMTs who protect us. The teachers who helped us learn and grow. If you think a soldier is more important or more deserving than anybody else, you have a warped (and frightening) sense of values because a soldier COULD NOT exist without a long line of other professions supporting them. Period.

I've walked the proverbial ""mile in our shoes" and feel as the others do. We don't need to broadcast that we or our family members are in the armed forces. It's their jobs, just like everyone else. I've lived on bases where women like you made me cringe with the "you should be grateful and honor us" demeanor. You get respect when you give it and behave accordingly. We have a child and I work part time to keep us OFF foodstamps. I'm able bodied and can earn some to add to our income.You don't have to be at home to be a good mother either. I know a woman who goes on ad nauseum about her husband in the military and how she sacrifices for her country. She feels she deserves everyone's attention because of it. It almost makes me gag. Since when did military wives become so pompous and full of themselves?

Whatever happened to..
A: Not having kids you can't afford to take care of?
B: Budgeting?
C: Not splurging on luxuries?

My grandparents were in their forties when they had children. During the depression, people didn't have kids. People who got pregnant right before the depression when everything was dandy went in droves to have abortions after everything went down the crapper. There was no such thing as food stamps. You took what was given to you at the soup kitchens and you traded for things you needed or you did without.

You're a piece of shit.

The fact that you think you're entitled to have kids and live comfortably speaks volumes about your character. Here I am, in my 30's, and would love nothing more than to have two or three children of my own but that is not going to happen as long as my husband are I are living paycheck to paycheck. We're not so freaking selfish that we'd bring another life into this world that we can't adequately provide for and expect everybody else to foot the bill.

We have basic cable. We have crappy internet. We have normal cellphones. We live in a well used but decent double wide trailer. We manage to pay the bills and afford food and have money left over to buy the things we want. I feel sorry for your kids. I do NOT feel sorry for you.
okay then

Do you kiss your children with that filthy mouth of yours? I was understanding you 100% until you started with the bad language. Grow up and be a good example for your children, especially in the communication department.

No one is ever ready for kids.... But hey it happens. Not many believe in abortion... So its NOT easy to just "ABORT" the child for many but if it is for you... Kudos for you....
But yes. Sh#t happens they wound up with parents that cannot support themselves let alone manage their fincials properly or simply just don't make enuf and are stuck in a check to check lifestyle but MAKE it work.... But is that a valid reason to abort?? Or WAIT til ya'll are really prepared which prob wld be too late by then.... Life is not ALL about money...
It's sad your allowing $$$$ to get in the way of your option to bring a child into the world and have a child to love on and nuture with care. But yeah that's your loss.

Two words: birth control. Is more available than ever, but yet people keep having children. I'm not talking abortion, I'm talking about planning your family. I know women who have had 3, 4 and even 5 kids, all by boys or men they didn't know very well, abusive men, or all by different men. Then, it's rough when they're all alone bringing up the kids. No big surprise there. I feel sorry for the children, they surely didn't ask for their situation. I just wish people would have a little more thought when having sex as to what the outcome may be if they don't practice birth control. And yes I know birth control isn't 100% effective, but how many accidents can some of these women have? You may never be financially ready for kids, but some can at least think about it.

Seems like its always the skanky or less fortunate girls having all the kids. The college gals are crankin out sex like crazy but you don't see them getting pregnant. You have to be smart about it folks. You must plan ahead. And who are these girls having all the sex with?......white trash loser guys and blacks who will never help with the children and then you are doomed. If you didn't have much then you have a kid or two you are destined to be poor the rest of your lives.....and on food stamps. Why should normal people have to pay for your bad choices in life? They shouldn't. Everybody with a comfortable life started planning ahead early on for a carerr and for a family.

That proves that she is responsible and is considering the feelings of another human being who doesn't even exist yet. If you bring a child into this world just so you can "love and nurture" it, you're being selfish. Children have sociocultural and emotional needs that extend beyond the obvious. They want to feel like they're on the same level as their peers. They need enrichment in their lives that piques their brains and allows them to mentally explore the world they live in. You should be wanting to have a baby because you want to help another person grow up into an esteemed, productive, intelligent, capable man or woman with sound moral values. If you want something "to love on," I suggest buying a puppy.

You sound like you never mentally graduated from high school. I didn't have kids until I was 38 because my husband and I spent our 20's and most of our 30's building our careers so that we could actually support a family. You see this type of waiting a lot in the more intelligent population. Those of us who are smart enough to realize that we can't afford/don't have time for kids don't have them. Perhaps if you took a moment to think about anybody other than yourself, you'd realize that most kids aren't content with just scraping by and even worse, they don't understand the reasons behind it. They feel like they're behind punished because they can't get a toy they've been wanting because they don't understand how jobs and money work.
