Why is it do hard for white people to get food stamps in this town??? My food stamps went down from 206 a month to 16 a month my income has not changed. When you go to the food stamp office you see all these people in brand new cars, clothes and everything and here I am poor and I mean poor and I can't even gets enough food stamps to provide for my family. I know a lot of people cheating the system and they get paid way more then I do and still get a lot in food stamps. So can someone tell me what is so messed up with hopkinsville that they let the poor suffer and the rich get richer cause I'm not understanding

I know what you mean you can't get by in this town unless you are a Gibbs we all no they are cheating the system getting paid under the table and on all the dope at the same time I don't know how they do it. This world is going CRAZY and know body can do anything about it all I say is marry a Gibbs and it will get better cause they are the ones with all the money, food stamps, and checks every month and don't forget about all the nice cars they are always ridding around in........

You can thank the people abusing the system for that. A lot of people on food stamps don't need them. And the ones that does need them cant get nothing at all. It's a sad world out here and it's not just black people some white people are on food stamps and abusing the system to

They really need to start drug testing!! That would elimante a lot of people getting them. I hate sitting down there at the welfare office and seeing people in pjs and IPhones and 600 dollars a month in food stamps. And then turn around and sell half of them...just plain crazy!!

glad to see I'm not the only one noticing the problem. Something really needs to be done if these crazy people can afford nice stuff then they can afford their own food every month they need to quit abusing the system just saying

Classic.. that's what happened to me in TN and I am also white and my worker is a blk man.. I had to call and call and call... and all my income is right there in the computer..... and they were trying to say I made $400 a month more then what I made... it pissed me off... and I never got a return call until I called the supervisor... then I finally got it taken care of... and I know that there was a blk girl who lived next to me who was getting 1,100 a month in foodstamps... tell me why her kids were always dirty and hungry.. It made me sick... we all turned her into to dcs.... white and blk ppl...and they never did a thing too her... but those kids I felt sooo sorry for them...

This crap is really making me mad now. I went to the store and some black guy was in front of me checking out he used a food stamp card to pay for his ice that he bought and pulled out a s*** load of money out of his pocket and I mean loads now you tell me the people that don't need to be on food stamps cause this guy sure didn't I really think they need to start drug testing every body on stamps cause I bet a lot of people in Hopkinsville will not have their food stamps anymore.

yeh.. I agree ticked off... and what about the 400 cars with the 4,000 rims~ if you can afford rims then you dont need foodstamps!!!! And I agree drug testing should be mandatory... and then if they are on drugs take there kids away as well... they get the foodstamps for their kids not their drugs!!!!

Maybe you people should become republicans, then vote for Romney! Obama is all about his foodstamps and letting people live for free. Don't stand for it.

Exactly...I stood in line at Pig Wig last week when a girl used a Wic card and answered her I-phone then got into a new car with temp tags.

i think they need to drug test people on foodstamps and checks cause alot of people are on checks just because they say they cant read or write or chase cars..that is a bunch of bs..alot of them are on checks and stamps and work everyday..i think the government should get a little stricter on them instead of just giving the states money away..

First of all it is a federal program...it doesnt matter what your race is to qualify...second of all the workers dont wave a magic wand and say approved or not....if u r eligible ur eligible...it is all based on your income period....thirdly it is a supplemental assistance program a temporary fix to help if u r eligible...not live on or rely on to soley take care of u....but generations and generations seem to think it is.

I agree it doesnt matter what color you are... just so happens that I hear some folks bragging about lying and not telling the truth about there income... or they have relatives that work there who dont care bout cheating the system. Yes exactly it is there to help it is a HAND UP, and should never be USED AS A HAND OUT.... some folks should be ashamed of themselves.....that is all races included... but if you single your race out by showing your ignorance, folks are gonna talk bout you....
