Its called jealousy and usually comes from people that have just a little more and need someone thats a bit poorer than they are so they can look down their noses at someone so they can feel all better about stealing half of what they have.Anyone that truly has any wealth doesnt bother to set on someplace like Topix and b!tch about the people with little enough that they qualify for something like this.
I am blessed to have what I do and thats not a lot but I am comfortable and never would I complain about what the poorer among us receives.With all the waste in this country and even feeding our enemies I have no concern about any freebie our own people might receive.Thats the main reason we are in the mess we are today...taking care of everyone but or own.

I feel just like you do about this ,what i hate worse is when you see the ones who complain about it and know some about them and know that while they are complaining about others that if they swerved over to the left side of their page on their facebook they would see their family photos and others knowing that everyone of them get ssi or welfare that none of them ever worked a day in their life but the one who complains dont know others that see that know the family.It actually makes me sick .

Even more annoying are the ones that took every frebbie there was on their way up so they basically never had to pay their own way for anything so they could keep what they did make.Now later in life they have a little money racked up because then never had to foot a bill the hard way and all of a sudden they forget their raising and how they got what they have to start with.Inheriting what mommy and daddy had doesnt qualify as earning it either.But those are the obnoxious ones that do all the complaining.
I say if you qualify for something then go get it and dont worry about what the ones that think they are better than you.They arent.They have just convinced them self they are more special.
When their time is up they will take with them the same amount as everyone else does...NOTHING...and what they have accumulated will not help one person or make anything better and it sure wont be in their coffin with them.

All the people i know who are on welfare or ssi are lazy and always looking for a handout. I know there are people who need it and deserve it. But the ones i know...lazy lazy lazy...and sorry in every sense of the word. It makes u stop and take notice when people living off of gov assistance are always going on getaways and vacations, always wearing nice clothes, smoking, never going hungry, always have a working cell phones and internet, a car and gas to come and go as they please. Don't even keep their own kids and are always looking for activities to do bc they have so much free time. Something wrong with that picture, imo, when they live a better and fuller lifestyle than people who work.

You must be seeing a whole lot different people on these programs than I do.The ones I know barely get by and their furthest getaway is Walmart.Sounds to me like you are assuming a whole lot and probably have few facts.Sometimes not every thing is as it MIGHT look.

Some people who get medical cards,SSI and foodstamps have worked their asses off about all their life but never made enough money around here in kentucky to pay enough in to qualify for social security untill they get retirement age.Alot of these old people probally made as low as 25 or 30 dollars a week
My heart goes out to these people and aches for them
But then their are others who have got ssi all their life along with their parents ,have babies let the babies dad move in with them and tell welfare they dont know who the babies dad is and draw another check for the kids , some of these families has never worked a day in their life.

OMG, Where did you get your medical license ? I'm guessing on the internet. Drawing Disability has nothing to do with your ability or inability to have children.

I don't know very many people on welfare. I know a few, and I know OF more. But you're right, I'm sure there are ones who barely get by. Didn't mean for it to sound like I meant everyone was the same though I realize now it prob did bc I was thinking about the ones i know when I wrote that. If people need it then I'm all for it. But I see some people just abuse it and have more kids so they can get more benefits. And actually say that.

I am very glad you was able to get one.Sounds as if you really needed it.So many people cant afford a home phone now and most cells are to expensive.
I dont use mine much so I got a cheap Tracfone.Even with the tiny amount I use it I still spend about $70 per year but I feel afraid when I dont have a phone.I am happy to hear that people that really need the phones can get them.

It is great. I have never had a food stamp or card in my life. A lot of people dont understand that. They just want to be hateful.

people on here keep talking about welfare ????? I thought the welfare program was cut out years ago ??? I know people draw food assistance (what used to be the paper food stamps), but I honestly thought the welfare program (free money) was done away with several years ago..........please, someone correct me if I am wrong.

Its pretty much gone.They do offer some temporary assistance and you have to job search and prove it among other regulations just to get a tiny amount.I THINK its less than $300 a month if you do get it and having more kids etc does not get you more money even though some still harp on that as if its still truth.
There is also a life time limit to getting that.Most states its 2 to 4 years max depending on the state.Its just people that want to put others down to feel better about them self and complain without any facts to back up their rage.

I know a person who complains about people getting handouts on her facebook and i swear is she looks across the page to her family pics and look at them one by one and ask herself if this one gets SSI and how many kids does she have and does them kids get foodstamps and welfare while their dads live in the house with the mom and kids and has never supported them , i am telling you every family member in her
family pics has never worked a day in their life and each and everyone of them gets anything free they can get and they all drawed SSI from the time they were small children until this date after they are grown
Why does someone like this complain about what others get ? Is her FAMILY SPECIAL OR WHAT?????

They get a free low end flip phone,those on ssi,food assistance,the elderly.. If you think people that get ssi are getting free money there not.You cant get ssi if you haven't paid enough into social security.It takes years to try to get ssi or disability, This is part of what we pay taxes for.These people then try to survive on $699 a month that is the current ssi payment amount..Ever try to live on $699 a month? "with children"They also have to prove there either mentally
or physically handicapped, this can mean years of doctors appointments all the while living on next to nothing or family members trying to help them.
That's where you are wrong. You don't HAVE to work to recieve SSI. I know a few people that draws SSI and have never worked a day in their lives. So, yes they are getting FREE money. You have to work to receive Social Security Disability. Not only do they get SSI for free, they also get foodstamps and now free phones. Get your facts straight. If a person is legitimately disabled, fine give them the help they need, but the ones who have made a way of living their whole lives off an SSI check, make them go work and pay in just like everyone else. Free phones is a bunch of bull. Give them a free phone so they can use it for emergency calls, they don't need 250 minutes a month or any minutes a month. Someone said it's so they can job hunt. No, if they are drawing a check and getting an EBT card, you can bet they're not looking for a job. How many of them do you think go through different phone carriers and get a couple free phones so when one runs out of minutes for the month they have another one on stand-by? They can afford their cigarettes, but the government has to pay for their cell phones. Running around in town on the first of the month with a lit cigarette in one hand and a flip phone in the other with their pajamas on and their hair greased over. Makes me SICK. And the people who NEED help can't get any help.
