Why don't you report her then?
Honestly, I hate to have to get involved and two, I worry what will happen to the kids when / if it gets investigated.

I'm pretty sure the kids would get taken away because of the stuff that goes on in that home and these foster homes are known to be as bad or worse than the drug homes.

Sounds like they are already in a bad environment. What do you think they are learning from all of this? A repeated pattern of the same she is doing. Maybe there is family that could step in and help take care of them if need be.

If it was just her selling food stamps for drugs and no kids involved, I would turn her in in a second, because that's just like stealing from me, that's part my tax money.

But since there's kids involved, I don't think I'm the right person to make that decision. If those kids were sent to a foster home and abused or molested, I could never forgive myself. WJHL just posted the other day about a child in a foster home, tied to the front porch with a dead chicken around its neck. Then again I don't know what all is going on in this home with the type of drugs that are being used and the type of men coming in and out of there.

I can understand your concerns. But, I think the previous poster makes an excellent point: maybe there is family in the area who could take in the children so they would not be placed in a foster home. DCS is mandated to consider kinship placements (and kinship is broadly defined) before foster homes.

Everone keeps saying that people on food stamps need to get a job please tell me where in the hell is there jobs in Greenville at because there are none. Everone keeps saying that there are jobs everywhere that pays 10 dollers a hour but truth be told you know there are none of those jobs here that are hireing. I agree there are people who anuse them but there are goid people who work and do need them. If no one got food stamps then you all would find something else to bitch about. Be glad you don't need them and quit worrying about everone else. And as far as people saying its there tax dollers paying for food stamps most of your tax dollers are being spent on a war that we should not be in and being spent on oboma care and other wastefull thing because of the president you all voted for twice that has never done one positive thing. So grow up and worry about your own home first.

Yes you have a right to your opinion just like everone. But explane to me how someone on food stamps is hurting you or your family. Because no matter what you and I and everone will have to pay taxes your taxes doller are not solely going to fund food stamps there are other thing that your tax dollers fund if that cut out food stamps they will still take the same amount of taxes out of our check like they do now. Yes I agree there are people who should not get them and abuse them but what about the people who really need them and try to make a living and still need a little help. I have yet to see anyone on here explane how it is effecting them because someone gets good stamps.

I get so sick of hearing people say they are no jobs in Greeneville. There are jobs in Greeneville, they're in the Greeneville Sun, on jobs4tn.gov , craigslist, temp services, fast food places and caregivers are always hiring. And you can come up with every excuse why none of these jobs will work for you, so you must continue on with your food stamps.

They're are so many companies in Greeneville trying to find good people to hire and can't find them. They can't pass drug test, they come in today, late because out partying all night, lazy, stupid, can't stay off cell phones and all these crazy reason you people can't get or keep a job.

Everybody blames temp services as why employee pay is not as good. Temp services are only here because of crappy employees. Companies are sick of hiring these people, putting time and training into them and then having to fire them cause they suck. I don't know how many temps we've brought in and after 1st day, don't send them back.

You don't have a job because of you and you only.

Look it up people more of your tax dollers are being spent on oboma care and the war we have to reason to be fighting than is being spent on helping people who need some help. You keep bring up people not working but are not realizing that people who work get them because they stil can't make it so what about those people? And like I keep saying please explane to me how it is effecting you and your family personally that there is people who work and get them or how if food stamps get cut out that your taxes will get lower. You can't answer eather one because you know our taxes are not going to get any lower and you know that you are not feeding anyone on food stamps your taxes go to many thing not just food stamps. And you can keep trying to convince people that there are jobs in greeneville but there is not. But I guess you all are so much better than everone else and have never in your life need anyone help. I sure it say not to judge people.

Which part of "there are jobs in Greeneville" don't you understand? Why can you not comprehend this? Have you even bothered to get a Greeneville Sun and look for a job?

You can keep saying there are no jobs out there until you're blue in the face, but it's still not going to be true. You either just keep saying this for an excuses to be a bum or you're just insane.

I just happen to be a member of a partnership here in Greeneville and I talk to business owners everyday saying they can't find workers. They're even putting ads in the JC and Morristown papers trying to find help. So get off of the there's no jobs in Greeneville crap or go see a shrink. I'm sure my tax dollars will pay for that also.

You are dumb you have no odes what you are talking about. First of all if you were as smart as you think you are you would know where you tax dollars go so let me explain it to you and the rest on here who have no idea what they are talking about 60% of your taxes goes to the war and oboma care only around 8% of your taxes goes to food stamps the rest is split up for other thing so first of all its not all your tax dollars that are going to food stamps. And as far as these so called jobs you clam that are out there most of them you either have to have a collage degree or have to have worked in that field for a period of time to even get a chance. And as far as me and my family goes we are not bums we make 1100 dollars a month working and after bills and raising 3 kids there is none left and I'm not the only person who is making it from pay day to pay day. And before you start I don't have a phone bill or buy beer. Maybe before saying all your tax's are going to food stamps you should have done some checking.

So now we are getting to the truth. So now you're saying there are jobs out there, just none for stupid, lazy, drug addict, deadbeats. Is that what you're saying?

But seriously, can't about anybody deliver a pizza or wipe an ass?

Ok I'm done, this is a waste of energy, I got to get to work and make some money to buy me some groceries, cause I don't get food stamps.

I can't believe you all want to even argue about foodstamps. I don't care if you think it's taking from you or your family. If you have such a big issue with it. GET OFF TOPIX and get off your azz and go do something about it instead of talk about it. I am sure some of us didn't grow up with a silver spoon in our mouth. To the person knowing someone selling them for drugs. You sound like a good person, maybe you can talk with her about her problem and offer some help. We should be helping other's, not always trying to find something to cut someone down about because you don't agree with it.

Just a thought but maybe if they would cut the waste out of the budget such as people abusing food satamps then they could use my tax dollars to actually start reducing the deficit. If we dont get our deficit under control our children will not have the same standard of living as we do now. We cant keep spending more than we take in revenues, its ridiculous.

It hard to believe how much you people don't know but you all think you do. Yes I agree there are people who abuse the food stamp program but the facts are that the food stamp program is a very small part of what taxes are even spent on. Of any of you would bother to take the time to learn something by checking where your tax dollars go you would see that most of it is spent on the war and on health care. Only around 8% of taxes is used for food stamps and that 8% is used to fund food stamps and government housing and other program to help people who need help. So the truth is that out of what anyone pays in taxes only 10 of that goes to those programs there majority of what you pay in a year goes to find a war we should not be in and to find health care. Mabey before talking about something you might want to learn how it really is because it easy to see know one that is bashing food stamps has any idea where there taxes are really going.
