there we all are standing in the long line at one of the four registers that are open and this lady at the back starts yelling about how every person in line is buying their food on foodtsamps with taxes that she paid. well lady you don't know who is paying with food stamps and who is not. and you don't know these peoples situations as to why they have to use food stamps to feed their families. so keep your opinions to yourself. and have a little heart this is the holidays a time to be thankful not complaining loudly in a packed grocery store.

Rude lady thank you!
Foodstamps lead to obesity problems, obesity problems lead to health problems, if they getting foodstamps they gotta have medicaid to pay for the health problems. Health problems turn into disability, now it is free everything all because of free food. Yep, taxpayers pays for it all.

I don't think you can shame the riders though.

not all people on foodstamps are on medicaid or disabled. and in todays economy some people have a hard time even with a tax paying job feeding their families.not all foodstamps users are taking advantage of the system,and the lady who was yelling this out had a cart full of groceries to how do we know she wasnt paying for hers with foodstamps. she was accusing everyone in line. not all of us pay with foodstamps.and some of us who do still pay taxes.just like some us pay for the schools when we have no school age kids.

Mouthofdasouth is right. The lady had not right assuming all the people in front of her were paying with food stamps, probably based on their race, let alone voicing her opinion so rudely in public. Yeah, she has the right to freedom of expression, but manners will take you further in life than being rude. I can not stand when people display such rude behaviors in public.

Food stamp usage does not mean everyone is on all other forms of public assistance. People utilize public assistance for all kinds of reasons. I know that there is abuse, but there is also abuse by corporate America in choosing to make profits above the needs and rights of their employees and customers. One Denny's franchise owner has decided to deal with Obamacare but attaching a 5% surcharge onto his customers to cover the additional employees he will have to provide insurance for or cut employee hours so he doesn't have to pay for insurance on part time employees, more the second than the first. This is appalling that he puts his profit over the health insurance needs of his employees, most of which are currently uninsured due to not being eligible for it because of how many hours they do not get to work.

Also assuming that food stamp usage leads to obesity is foolish. Eat leads to gaining weight period, let alone standing in line at a fast food restaurant. We all purchase foods that lead to obesity and eat in excess all the time, so don't put the blame on public assistance.

All of this is why I avoid WalMart on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays after church lets out. Go early in the morning...the peace makes it all worth it.

You know that the price you pay for one of them cars built by obamamotors has the cost of employee insurance and pension plain added in? Takes total cost to do business then figure profits.

Yes... all these restaurants who want to add a surcharge to the big salaries of waitresses need a lot more money in their wallet.. God bless the republicans who want to shaft these women who make about $2.80 an hour.. wow.. why not make the girls give the ceo their tips too. Maybe the food stamp person who was screamed at is working for the great wages she gets toting your plate to you while you stuff your face every day at dinner.

All that mess is built into the cost of everything. Why don't you explain why diesel fuel is cheaper to make and a by product of gasoline had suddenly increased in price above and beyond the cost of gasoline, when it is and was way cheaper than gas? It is because our country ships its goods with diesel. This increases the profit of the oil industry....ie BUSH and his cronies. You can not blame Obama for the mess this country is in. It has been brewing for the past 30 years, so blame the Republic party that had the majority of control of the Presidency and Congress during those years. You don't want to pay taxes either, but you want nice roads to drive on, public education, electricity, clean water and air, and everything else that your tax dollars go to support, the good, the bad, and the ugly. If you want to be equally represented, then go for a true flat tax for all people and do away with all the deductions and loop holes. I can rewrite the tax code with one sentence. All persons on these shores will pay a 9% federal income tax, a 9% state income tax, and 9% sales tax. That will balance the budget and all people are treated equal under the tax code. But wait, that cuts into profit. There is a reason why it is easier for a camel to get through the eye of the needle than a rich man into heaven.

Some liberal hugging trees said the sulfer in Diesel was bad for the enviorment, now we have to pay union workers to build another scrubber then pay to run diesel through it to get the diesel to 6 ppm sulfer. Before that rule diesel was cheap.

last account of waiters salary was 2.13 plus tips. If that amt doesn't equal min wage, the restaurant has to pay the difference to make min wage.

Naw,wasn't me . can't say anyhtign when I see them with fs carts,just makes me speechless. I'm scared to speak out, afraid I might really be ashamed of my actions.

You know I have empathy for people who have lost their job or are sick,but I just remember how my parents worked hard,went without and struggled to raise thier little gaggle of children.Moms brother were all farmers so we had plenty of veggies and fresh meat but still had to gather the veggies.I just wonder where people pride,morals and self respect has gone.
The people who receive the freebies have abducated[sold out] their families, this country and themselves[pride] for so called free stuff.How can children learn to be productive,self respecting people if they follow the example of their parents.

times were not as hard back then.i was raised on the farm,share cropper parents.came up the hard way.dont remember a thing called food stamps.dont think they existed.but they woyuld have helped feed us someting beside fat back bacon and chicken they my mama raised.
we al worked hard.i was picking cotton when i was solittle i had a 10 pd sack to put it in.not every one was borned with a silver spoon,or family to help.
i remember when i was a teen ager a loaf of breadas 25 cents today irs something like $3.00. i can see where the system is being abused but i also can see where some are really in need.i do so get tired of folks who look down their nose at people who have than they do.reminds me of how i was looked down on by some class mates after we moved from the farm to town.we moved into the housing projects so some thought they were better than me.they were not.and some of them have way less today than i had back then.i feel so sorry for snobs.
