Most of the people commenting are making assumptions and are flat out lying. The other half are just wishing and fantasizing about what they want welfare to be. First of all, if you are a stay at home mom with a husband that works and his income falls below a certain amount you can receive food stamps. It depends on how many in the household and his income. A family of 7, 2 adults and 5 children, no matter who works, if the total income is a certain amount that family will receive food stamps. Also, no matter the bull crap you hear on this site, no matter where you work as long as you have a job you will NEVER receive money. Food stamps, maybe, money, NO. What is sad about this site is any redneck mofo can type false hatred and b.s. about a system they don't even know about. They are only on the outside looking in and think they know everything. Remember, these are the same mofo's who refuse or are unable to take a government handout yet they make comments and sware they know everything about the system.

All I need to know is the government is forcibly taking my money from me and distributing it to deadbeats who have more children than they can afford. Let the deadbeats eat what they can afford from their own labor. You might have some credibility if you learn the sills to communicate without incorporating profane remarks in your posts. BTW, everyone who dislikes the socialist distribution of our income are not rednecks. The founding fathers never approved of it, nor do many of today's economist. Bless your little heart.

lighteredknot I know not everyone who disagrees with the food stamp program are rednecks I'm making generalizations just as you and mostly everyone else have. Please spare everyone with the holier than thou b.s. and the condescending bless your little heart crap. If you can't receive the truth and disagreement unless it's served up on a decent plate then this is your warning to stay the f away from my posts. I have no problem with you being in ignorant bliss discussing one sided issues. Now do yourself a favor and go chastise your friends on this site who have used way more profanity than me but you seem to have no problem communicating with since you have the same agenda.

I never require profanity to express my thoughts. Glad you have started doing the same. If you love the democratic socialist programs so much do something novel, pay for them with your money and leave my money for my family. Financial support for the deadbeats has proven to be a massive failure, 1 out of 5 families are now on food stamps. BTW, calling everyone a "redneck" who disagrees with your socialist agenda is not an educated fact. The school of thought where you acquired this "fact" is in need of a curriculum standards audit for its teaching of fraud and deceit. Bless your little heart.

Detroit mayor admits Detroit is headed for bankruptcy it can't pay its bills, high unemployment, and can't fund its promised pensions to workers. This is the product of failed democratic leadership providing years of socialist programs to deadbeats who never pay taxes. We only have to look at the massive spending by obama to see what America will be when we can't even pay our interest on his spending.

The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money to spend. When that happens, those who choose to have children (and it is a choice nowadays) that they can't afford to support, will have to go looking for some way other than welfare and taxpayer funded handouts to support them.

That's why they should not have children until they have a good economic foundation to support them.

Might as well flip the script and turn this possible socialistic problem into a "dictatorial solution": if you make X amount of money, then, by law, you should only have Y children. If you do not abide by the law, the state takes the kids you aren't supposed to have.

But the cons would be is that the state can't take the parents to jail bc they still have the legal Y amount of kids to take care of and the remaining Y that had been transferred to the state would need more state money to take care of those Y children. Plus, the state can't fine broke parents. THEN, no one wants the govt to tell them how many kids they are supposed to have. So the responsibility is of the public's...skinny pockets can't have fat (pregnant) bellies.

So to all parents with adolescent kids, tell your children to not bear children before finishing high school, before finishing college, and before you have enough of money saved up to take care of you, your family, including kids, in case the economy goes bad or job loss strikes the family. I'm doing this now. I don't fall in love, marry and have kids since I feel that my economic situation will not support these choices. But yet, Sally loves Sam, then they have kids before they have money.

Hmm...I wonder if China still performs the population control of infants. May need to be practiced over here in the States.
What do you think?

Now, if you give a broke man with very little ability to make money a loan, what is the chance that he will pay it back? Detroit is that broke man.

But since it seems that the city itself won't be able to support its own local resources (police, firefighters, etc.), it has to "go default". But at least it seems that the GDP of Detroit has some noticeable positive results:
http://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/regional/gdp_...

So if you live in Detroit, get yo money and run to Dallas TX, because ole Motor town will take a while to begin a new economic renaissance. Tigers, Lions, and Pistons fans: still continue to support your venues, bc they may be the only economic structure in your city. Detroit should have diversified itself like other post-industrial cities like Baltimore, MD or Pittsburgh, PA.

Anyhow lighteredknot, that article is based on more of Detroit's failure, not entirely the incompetence of the Obama administration. Betcha Detroit's gov't know they couldn't pay back that money even before taking it from the Obama administration.
The pissy part about it is that a local govt has the capability to "go default". Sh*t, wish I could "go default", too.

Section 8 could be a small catalyst for those who take advantage of it so they can afford to live in the soon to be gentrified sections of those "once prestine areas". That is part of the cycle which Section 8's existence rides on. But those who take advantage of it to be complacent are 'putting salt in the game'.

Section 8 won't disappear anytime soon because those who participate are participants who support a specific form of govt.
Yet, that is another cycle of Section 8's existence.

Did I not respond to you and say I know not everyone who disagrees with me is a redneck? It's called a generalization. Please don't act like you don't know one when you see it. And the 'facts' I posted was in regards to the 'food stamp program', not the generalization. Dude are you educated? You obviously need to learn reading comprehension.

If you are a stay at home "parent", household income falls to the level you need welfare, then you need to get a job also, and/or your partner needs a second job.

So, you mean to tell me for example; a working couple with three kids, one of the parents decides they don't want to work anymore, he/she can quit their job, and get food stamps? And since he/she no longer has a job, he/she can get money, Medicaid, Peach Care, etc???

So, you mean to tell me for example, a couple with three kids, and one income, already receiving food stamps, Medicaid, and Peach Care, can get more welfare if the sole bread winner quits working?

So, you mean to tell me that you see nothing wrong with this?

A family of 5, 2 parents and 3 children, only one parent is required to work. Yes they qualify for food stamps if the gross income is less than $3000 a month give or take. The children will qualify for medicaid unless they already have insurance. No cash assistance. Sometimes one parent won't work because they can't afford childcare and working minimum wage won't cover daycare costs for 3 children even if they're only going to the after school program. Even still, only one parent is required to work. If the sole bread winner stops working they will then qualify for cash assistance. Both parents have to work, or not work at all, to receive cash assistance. If they both work and the combined income is less than $1000 a month give or take, they will still be eligible for cash assistance and if you qualify for cash you automatically qualify for food stamps and medicaid. But if you get cash assistance and don't work the kids go to childcare for free while the parents are job searching. They get free bus and marta tokens and also gas vouchers if they own a car. They get clothing vouchers to buy decent interview and work clothes. If they don't work they are required to get up every day and actively job search and go to job workshops and other programs until they find a job. Once they get a job and depending on how much the monthly income they may still be eligible for cash, food stamps and free or discounted childcare. In some states they even give $500 towards the purchase of a used car. I never said I didn't see anything wrong with it. Unfortunately there is no gray area. I know people who genuinely need the help so I can't say I'm against it but I am totally against the abuse.
