Who cares who gets food stamps and welfare. Do you think political leaders read this crap you are writing? This is all ignorant cheap talk. If you want to do something about how people get or use the Lone Star card go to this website http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/
and write your representative.

I don't know if this helps... But it helped my daughter and even though I can't hire at this time, I do know who is. Express in Longview. I know you said medical field and even though my daughter had no experience she got hired through express personel in Longview with a local hospital. Hope that helps!

First of all, I will acknowledge that the people who started this topic are from good ol' racist east texas. So these stereotypes and generalizations of people are not at all surprising. However, its ignorant nonetheless. Who gives a shit what she bought? Her kids are eating. What would you have said if she pulled out her wallet and paid for those items with cash? Would it still be an issue? What if she decided she wasnt going to feed her kids at all? The woman's poor parenting skills have nothing to do with her need. You dont know what she can afford, whose car she was driving. Plenty times i have taken my MOTHER'S 2012 Jeep Liberty jet limited to the grocery store and paid for my groceries with MY lonestar card. Ignorance is so ugly.

if you get a lone star card we all should. NOBODY helps pay for anything I have. I don't care what color you are but I know just by your post. Society does not owe you anything. If one job won't do it get two. I'm sure you have kids that are also on Medicaid that my check is paying for. How great is America when all the racist people are buying u breakfast lunch and dinner.

I totally agree. I am a 48 year old african american woman. I drive an old model dependable car. 20 years ago when I was a new mother I was on foodstamps For about 2 years. I got a job making pretty decent pay and I didn't need it anymore. When I'm in the store pants on my phone with my hard earned money I look at other people baskets and I feel the same way when I see how they waste The opportunity to get free food. I pay more money for healthy foods. And I do agree when you see people shop on lonestar card there kids do seem to be hyperactive and quite overweight. Its ashame before God and the taxpayers.

ok I have a lone star card you think I can't have a diet pepsi or some chips or maybe some ice cream. The only reason I have a card is because I was disabled in a car accident and you want to tell me what I can eat. Your crazy why do you judge when you don't someones circumstances.

No I don't have sprained ankle I had a stroke and it affected the left side of my body. I'm from lazy and there you go judging people. I wish I could go back to work. I get out and down what I can. I wish I could meet you face to face and see what a hateful person looks like. I have worked all my life and what I have I worked for. God has blessed me. YOU MAKE ME SICK WITH YOUR COMMENT AND SO DO ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE WITH ALL THE JUDGING YOU ALL DO. YOU JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH. FOR A PERIOD OF TIME I WAS UNABLE TO WALK. I DON'T FEEL SORRY FOR MYSELF I DON'T DEPEND ON ANYONE IF I CAN'T DO IT I TRY NOT TO WORRY ABOUT. I WORK HARD EVERYDAY TOOVER COME WHAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH AND HAVE COME ALONG WAY AND WITH GOD'S HELP HOPEFUL SOMEDAY I WILL BE HEALED AND BE ABLE TO GO TO WORK. I type this with one finger and I'm not able to stay sitting for to long because of the pain. Oh and I don't rely on drugs I deal with.

I think for ppl in your circumstances that's exactly what the system is for. I'm proud of you. My belief is you work until u just can't. The elderly and disabled. I work and hope to always be able to. But someday I may need help. But for those who just sit and do nothing including trying to make themselves a life do not deserve help. I know so many who work and deserve to not have to but do till they can't. What angers me is the young ppl who go out to the clubs are involved in drugs and seen drinking more than the average joe, I find problem with. If you can party and dance your butt can work. I'm sorry about your stroke. I took care of my father in law who worked hard all his left till he had a massive stroke destroying his entire left side. He died a year later wishing he could have lived a full life. So I can see your pain.

don't hate anybody if you really need the help take it. If you don't fall in the category I have referred to in my post then you should not be offended.

Cost of living is high.

My husband and I have begun to struggle recently. His job is highly dependent upon sales and the economy just isn't conducive to a sale position right now. We have 3 kids and both work such strange hours that we can't find a 2nd job to fill in our little time off. When I mentioned to him that I thought we should apply, he became adamant that we should definitely not. He doesnt think benefits should be used just because its convenient. We are making it and will continue to survive. Our kids eat healthier than most and are very healthy, so we are blessed. I sometime get angry when I take a few dollars to the store for a specific item and see someone pay for junk with their food stamps, but I know exactly how far in life anger will get me: nowhere.

The other day I bought a diet pespi I felt so bad. But I was thirsty. Please forgive me. But you know what I can't buy toilet paper or other personal things either I can't even afford dog food. But I had the dogs when I became disabled. Don't judge people just because they bought some junk food with their card we are human too. I'll let you walk in my shoes at least you can work I'm not able to. I promise I never by a diet pespi again pr any other kind of snack. God please forgive me.

Saw someone using a lone star card tonight. Funny that he had money for all the tattoos all over himself but not enough to pay for his own food. Doesn't have enough money to feed himself, his wife and the child that was with them yet she is pregnant. Guess the tax payers have to pay to feed that kid too.
Been there
