you know what, things are hard for everybody right now and theris "NO SHAME" in getting help if you need it. Escpecially if it is to feed your family. THAT IS WHY YOU PAY TAXES, just as we all have for all our life. jerk!

I worked twenty years. I worked graveyards, first shifts, second shifts to pay child support. After twenty years I have my child support paid off. I pay all my bills.
Due to the economy I am out of work at the time. When I USE my food stamp card...you know what??? I paid into the taxes that buys my food.

Anyone I see using a food stamp card I know I helped by paying into theirs as well because I paid in my taxes. So lol back to you.

Amen! I know some people abuse it, but not everyone does! My parents are having it hard right now, and deserve help, but they have too much pride to ask. They have worked and paid taxes their whole life and never bitched about it. I know ppl that get more income than they do that are on food stamps, so I know they could get it. I'm so tired of ppl complaining they have to pay taxes, boo hoo we all do!

Damn right I'm gna complain! While I'm buget to buy food, I c people n front of me with buggies full of junk. I understand its to help u. It's not a career opportunity or the only means of income. It's too bad more people don't have more pride, than to b on assistance. There r so many lazy Americans abusing the system. It's absolutely embarassing to live n a town full of baby mommas and baby daddys and welfare junkies.

I work 40 hours a week yet my family is also on assistance. With one person out of work and no prospects available, it helps our family. It is embarrassing to have to be on assistance but without it we wouldn't be able to afford food. My job covers the necessities but we still have to scrounge for gas money each week. No, I'm not proud that I'm having to use "the system" as most put it but it is definitly a God-send at this time. By the way, you won't find junk food in my buggy---it's the basics, what's on sale, and things we can actually make from scratch not prepackaged food. Sorry that some people abuse the system, but others really do try but need the assistance at times.

I have paid in for over 30 years and am proud to have helped people in need. If it bothers you some much that people are getting help quit your job and live the good easy life.

I work so therefore it is my tax dollars too. A thanksgiving meal is actually pretty cheap. Turkey 9-14 bucks, yams 2.00, cranberry sauce 50 cents, stuffing maybe 2 bucks. So how is that a luxury?

Don't be embarrassed!! You are working and I would much rather you have the assistance then someone that has never worked a day in their life. I know jobs are hard to come by right now, my spouse was in the same boat for awhile. We keep our heads up and Thank God he has found a job. Keep your head up and a job will come your way for your family. Hope God blesses you with a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas!!

People only get up set at the fact, their is a lot of people who abuse the system. Those who sit back and laugh while trading their ebt card for cash that go buy their drugs, beer etc. For those who truly need the assistance, I am all for it. But when a few people are sitting back trying to get disability (through a lawyer) that Truly doesn't need it. Thats when I get mad. Many people with true diabilities want to work!! And do work (with pain etc)they are the ones who take pride in their life.
Its one thing if it's needed but it's another when people get them and their family trades off for cash. When someone offers you 180 dollar food card to use for 140, thats a pretty good trade. I have heard it to often, thats when it's abuse. And sadly, the family says, they are just helping them out. Ya to buy cigs, drugs and little gas money to run on.

I work and go to college full time (on scholarship). I recieve foodstamps too. I also pay taxes, about 40% of my income is spent on taxes. In fact I pay more in taxes than I recieve in foodstamps. Im paying my own way. Im not enjoying YOUR tax dollars, Im enjoying MINE. If you think that just because a person gets foodstamps they are nt working, think again. Having a job does not disqualify a person from getting food stamps. In fact, in some states, if you are not disabled, a job or school is a REQUIREMENT for foodstamps. Educate yourself. It must suck to be such an a$$hole.

Do you know how it feels to even have to use a foodstamp card? Its humiliating. Thanks for the extra bs. Everytime I pay for my groceries with that card I have to fight back the tears anyway. Maybe this year, just to make you feel better, my boy and I will just eat pb&j. We've done it before and were thankful for it.

Good for you, and don't listen to these assholes! Their comments are the reason why some people that need help won't ask for it! Of course there is gonna be some lazy/druggie people that don't care to abuse the system! There's not a thing we can do about it, except hope our state becomes one that makes them take drug test to get assistance!

yeah and theres to sides to this story. your covering up making fun of people on foodstamps and you probably get them your self. or your mad because you dont. people like you are so pathetic you must be ashamed of yourself to hide behind a computer screen and make fun of people. i would bet my paycheck for a whole year. that you got someone in your family that gets foodstamps or has. and come back with your lies that you got this big job and have never seen or had anyone in your family on foodstamps. come on give us your bull s. you are probably a child living off your parents.that has not been taught respect. and besides that as many people that work.lol that little bit of taxes you pay probably goes back to you in your own habits. your someone that dont have a life to make fun of other people.so come on little child responed because adults dont act like that. give us what you got. give us your lies on how wealthy or a great job etc. we as adults dont pay any mind to people like you with nothing else to do. make fun of yourself im sure you have a lot to laugh at.by the way i work 42 hours a week and have worked all my life. i dont get foodstamps. but im very happy to pay those taxes to help a child eat or a elderly person or a family. god bless each family that has respect for other people. and i dont agree with the abuse. but some people need the help not your ignorance.

It's a damn shame people like you are allowed on the internet at all. You didn't read one single post in this thread. We need the stamps because unlike you we don't have our mommy to breast feed us.

I don't know who you are talking to, but if you read my first post I DON'T GET FOOD STAMPS!!! I said my parents, who are going through a hard time right now, who have worked their whole life deserve them, but they absolutely will not ask for any assistance because of their PRIDE! If you are talking to the young single mom that posted earlier, she said she works, and is going to college! Why wouldn't she deserve to get them? It sounds like she's not getting help from her sperm donar! So, if people like her, who obviously is trying to better her and her childs life by getting a college education doesn't deserve them, then who the fuck does?! If you are so tired of the way things are, and how our taxes are being used, why don't you do something about it besides running your mouth on topix, and run for office?!
