EVERYONE USING FOOD STAMPS AND GETTING CHECKS AT THE FIRST OF THE MONTH ARE NOT ON "WELFARE" AS YOU SEEM TO THINK. SOME PEOPLE ARE SICK AND DO NOT QUALIFY FOR REGULAR SOCIAL SECURITY EARLY BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE 20 QUARTERS REQUIRED IN THE PAST IMMEDIATE 10 YEARS EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY HAVE WORKED MOST OF THEIR LIVES. THIS LAW ESPECIALLY IS A PENALITY FOR WOMEN WHO MAY BE HOME FOR SOME REASON. SICKNESS CAN OCCUR SUDDENLY WITHOUT ANY WARNING. ONCE THIS HAPPENS, YOU CAN ONLY OWN "$2000,00" WORTH OF MATERIALISTIC ITEMS AND YOU CANNOT RECEIVE ANY HELP AND MUST LIVE OFF OF, GET THIS,$623.00 A MONTH AND YOUR FOOD STAMP MONEY. I DON'T KNOW WHO CAME UP WITH THIS FIGURE BUT IT MUST BE SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN THE 1940 YEAR ATTITUDE. SO, THE NEXT TIME YOU SEE SOMEONE WITH A FOOD STAMP CARD, DO NOT THINK THEY ARE ON "WELFARE", WHATEVER THAT IS, THEY MIGHT BE VERY SICK. THINK AGAIN.

Then I see them walk out to their $20,000 car, but wait, that belongs to the boyfriend, who is also the father of some of the children and uses his money to pay for bling and chrome wheels instead of his offspring.

So Glad you found the caps lock key there SICK WORLD. Of course your posts would be more intelligent seeming if you used both upper and lower case, but, then again after reading the drivel you wrote, one can only wonder...
If you can't survive on welfare, ADC, food stamps, and other handouts by both government and charity organizations, then quit making excuses and find a job! Being disabled in no way disqualifies you from ever working again. There are many positions that don't require physical ability, but you'll have to make the effort to find one. Life is what you make it. You want misery, you'll stay in misery blaming everyone but yourself for your situation.

Wait just a minute here! You want lower case, okay. Do you not understand a Government Doctor and a Medical Doctor have to approve this situation. It could be anything from a sudden amputation to mental illness. Everyone doesn't have chrome junk on their cars. Some barely have cars. Some had cars that were very nice in the beginning but now barely have functioning cars but because of this situation, don't. Some are medicated beyond belief just to exist because of these situations. Do you not believe you can get sick? It can happen to YOU!! It can happen quickly. Did you not read the part about not qualifing because you might be a woman who has stayed whom for, say 5 years to help with an elderly parent or a child who might also be sick only to be struck suddenly with some terrible illness? There seems to be something I may also have left out. If you did want to supplement your money but getting some other job, you really can't. They will take from it any money you earn. How's that for motivation? Something is wrong. Maybe you are so dumb you can't understand this picture or you just don't get it. Who said anything about blaming anyone for anything? Sick is sick.

Also, just wondering how you feel about people who get sick and collect early Social Security, the regular type and qualify. Do you feel they are doing the same? Just curious. What is the difference? Both people paid enormous amounts into it, it just wasn't in the past few years.

TO BUZZ BUZZARD: You are grouping.
By the way, what is bling? Excuse me, but I really don't know. I don't have them, chrome wheels, but do you think a sick person should be punished and stripped of all worldly goods? I also don't have children to feed or take care of. Do you think a sick person can't have a boyfriend either? Boyfriends are different things to different people. Just wondering.

When I lived in Newport News, the cafeteria at City Hall had a blind cashier. City Hall is the building across the street from the Community Services Board with the 30 foot high letters "C," "S," and "B."

There was also a lawyer with cerebral palsy.

The blind cashier and the lawyer with cerebral palsy are heroes!!

I think it is wonderful that both of their stories ended this way. All stories don't work out the same in case you haven't noticed. Are you the same as everyone else you know? What is your problem? By the way, I would like to know how the blind cashier read the bills?

Why are you trying to put a guilt trip on someone who has had a misfortune in life? I personally don't feel like an illness which causes someone to collect early Social Security Income is welfare? Why do you? They have paid a lot of money into the system if they are almost at retirement age?

I don't know. It was the cafeteria in the basement.

Not sure what you are talking about when you ask about "my problem;" I think you are incorrect in saying that these payments aren't welfare.

You can recognize this without having "a problem."

Seems that SICK WORLD is on some type of government assistance and has taken offense. Feeling guilty are we?

If you can work then you don't need these payments. We have a blind man where I work. he does a great job.

In "The Pink Panther" the blind man was a lookout.

"Seams" are in clothes. You don't know me. It's interesting how people who just want to say something, make things up! No quilt trip here.

Actually, Sick World, your use of all caps obscured what you were trying to get across. I take it that you, or someone close to you is on disability due to life changing illness. Am I correct? If that's the case, and the stricken person can not work due to illness, then how can he/she drive a car and buy groceries without help? Just asking, not meaning to offend. There are numerous jobs available for the physically or mentally challenged. You just have to look for them.

Some people claim to be "disabled" and say they can't work so they can get free money.These people make it hard for those that actually need the help.I personally know certain people who are fully capable of working but chose to spit out kids or claim their back hurts and get assistance.This is why welfare,SSI,and disability benefits should be regulated and dispersed more carefully.
