I'm around someone who thinks she's entitled to everything. You can never be kind enough because she eventually gets condescending by her smart aleck remarks. There are usually two reasons that people acquire food stamps/ governmental benefits while having big ticket items (1) they got the item before the job was lost,(2) there's fraud involved,(3) maybe, it was a gift. I know, it makes an honest, hardworking individual become irate to notice this kind of lifestyle of someone. I would just recommend keeping your integrity intact and minding your business. Others personal business is really not yours to be involved. And I wouldn't want to be involved in any nefarious arrangements if I were you. Keep marching right because if they're having to fight for a few measly food stamps seems to me like their road might be getting rougher;) ;)
Too much

Because they are lazy to the core. That is why. Too many check drawers out there that want everyone to feel sorry for them and yet they won't get off their ass and look for a job. Jobs are everywhere. A person just has to look. It isn't that difficult but most people
Wanna set around on their a** and do nothing

Foodstamps can be a good thing if the recipients are truly struggling and need assistance. Some people do not make enough money and need some assistance, and I believe that is a good thing. When I first got married seven years ago, my husband and I both worked full time jobs. We were not making enough money, so we had to get assistance until we got more established. Now I am very proud to say that I am an RN and my husband is a PA. Not everyone that receives food assistance are lazy or on drugs. Some people do work and try, but they just can not make the ends meet. I do believe that a drug test should be required in order to receive any type of government assistance. Many families, especially families with children, need assistance, and that is when foodstamps are a good thing. People in this area believe if you receive foodstamps, you are a lazy piece of crap, when in reality, not everyone that receives the stamps are lazy. I also see a lot of people complaining over being at the store and seeing others with two buggies of food and they pay with the food with foodstamps, before running your mouth about it; maybe that family needs all of those groceries. Don't judge everyone who gets assistance, some people are trying.
Report Them

The answer to your question is they don't qualify with two new cars, home and all that you have described. They are defrauding the state/gov. and should be reported. Didn't you see where the woman below fallsburg just got caught defrauding for a med. card and food stamps? She is soon to be arrained in court. You have to have a certian income level and only a certain amount in assets and that includes money and personal items. Check it out and report their stealing a--.

For Lorie, yes my dear many people do need the assistance, but to many don't, they just don't want to do what old timers called cutting back. I raised a family and went without many times but never got a food stamp or commodities as they called them then ever. I never had a medical card of free service of any kind, we lived within our means and many times that was very rough but it made great people of us all and today we are all financially secure and have carried those same practical managment ideas right on in the good times as well as the lean years and it works for us. Don't owe a nickle, money in the bank nice home new cars all paid for and the state or gov. never helped us have any of it, as a matter of fact we accumulated it while paying for the foodstamps and assistance for those that feel entitled to that crap.

I agree with you Lorie not everyone who receives assistance is lazy. The government has it backwards, if you are working and trying ti improve your situation then you should receive assistance, BUT if you are not working, have not worked in years, and keep having innocent children then you should not get anything. Sadly the children are the ones who always suffer in these situations.

I agree that not everyone that gets foodstamps is lazy or unwilling to work and provide for themselves, but my dear getting foodstamps, med. card and all the freebies is ever reason to boast about it like so many do today. If this country doesn't wake up and see what is happening to our nation we are doomed to be a place that those of us now with a desire to be free won't even recognize. When you pander to the welfare single mothers, illegals and legal family members of illegals, those that want to run over here to have their babies so they will be citizens and entitled to all benifits, gays, poor, uneducated, dependent types that look to someone else to take care of them, then you get a man elected like Obama, thats how he got in, it can work locally as well as nationally, just let a govenorial candidate announce that he/she will give free this and that and put a chicken in every pot and money in the mailbox every month for you and he/she would win if they were black, muslum and retarded, thats just about what happened this time when obama got back in. Not many are looking at the long range effects of what is happening, like prayer taken out of schools and abortion, next will be gun control it is on its way and you that support having the government take care of you will be resp. for them telling all of us what we have to do. Who thought Hostess Bakery's would shut down? that's going to be the story with our mines and many other employers, they have made their money why should they be concerned about our jobs, walk away injoy their retirment and fortunes they have made and let us suffer they don't owe us anything we were paid for every hour we worked so they can walk on if they want to and that is going to be what you see a lot of in the comming years I am afraid.

I am so sick of men whining about "they're going to take our guns' how about the government tells you what to do with your body instead? How about every man by the age of 35 must have a vasectomy that would help with unwanted pregnancy now wouldn't it? How about all these 'welfare mothers' as you call them perhaps would not be on welfare if the so called 'men' would pay for their children?? As for the country well it did not get this way in just 4 years, its been a long time coming and will get worse no matter who is in office. And before you reply with smart aleck comments NO I do not have children nor do I live off the government. I am a young single woman with a college degree and a good job and I will not sit around and watch women and women's rights be pushed back 100 years!

You go girl, the very idea that you can't get your birth control pills or an abortion is appaling but you call one of the old brothers he'll bring his gun and you can shoot it when you have to bring it home, same thing rigt? oh no the other way you don't have to look at it, sorry, or bury it God forbid that would cost you funeral expense. I say castrate all men that fail to pay support to some loose woman that has to have a dna to even know who to charge for it. Don't you know the only protection our men have rom you modern women with RIGHTS is a gun, they tried beating them off with a stick and that didn't work and now they want to take their guns, say it's not so. If you are a young single woman you don't need to be concerned about birth control unless you are a loose woman, lets call a spade a spade, decient women don't spread their legs everyime they get around an interested man, thats what is wrong with this generation, in my day we called them like it is "whores", now whores want rights, wow.

LOL wow is right the ignorance of some men is astounding, I really hope you do not have any daughters. I am sure you would rather have sons and lets get it clear men can be whores as well but its just easier to blame the women right? of course because men never do anything wrong. You are a total joke and I am not a 'loose' woman but if I was it certainly would not be any of your business. I think ts time for your generation to be in bed. Night Night Gramps

Mary, Mary, just can't keep bed off your mind can you. With the rights you are so hung up on mary also comes responsibility, if you want to lay around the consiquences many times is an unwanted pregnancy, I just happen to be opposed to murder of another human being regardless if it is in the womb or on the street. Now that is your choice Mary and you, not I have to live out your life with the choices you make. It is so simple to fix, don't have unprotected sex and there won't be any unwanted baby to have to kill. I have raised mine, all of them, never chose to get rid of any of them and when I look at the baby Jesus pictures this time of the year I don't have to be reminded of one I chose to toss out like garbage, for convenience sake. You have a degree, good, now all you need is a brain.

You are such a sad pathetic little man that much is obvious. Keep looking at that picture and tell yourself what a wonderful person you are and I am sure you will believe it. I suppose I should pity you and your stupidity but I will just laugh at you instead. I wonder when you look at that picture do you call his mother a whore too? That is what many thought, and you seem to love to judge people hmmmmmmm Also if you are so against killing why do you need a gun? You said you are against all murder again hmmmmm Oh well maybe its just your mind going bad on you and you get confused.

Good to see you are in from school mary. lol Quit trying to act like a big girl and you should have better things to do than get on topix before and immediately after school. You sad kids make me weep for what things are comming to in this world. Lets see, they want to use abortion as a means of birth control and yet they are for gun control. Well mary when a home invasion happens at your house just throw your birth control pills at them and maybe, just maybe they will have pity on you for being so stupid and allow you to live. lol

Poor little man you want a gun in case of a home invasion but yet you said i don't believe in murder whether its in the womb or on the street make up your mind old man. I never said i wanted gun control you just assumed that like you have assumed everything else. I bet you are one of those men that beat their wife, ran around having affairs(and kids) drank all the time and when your kids got older they RAN from the house to get away from their redneck daddy or did they have to call you big daddy lmao As for being home of course I am home I am on a 2week paid vacation from my job. Go take your meds dear its time for your nap :)

You sir, come of as a pedantic moron. At least I assume you are male as you seem to have little care for women's rights. Perhaps you are compensating for a lack of some sort of attribute and are afraid of independent thinking women who believe in life outside the kitchen, only your shrink could say for sure.

First you seem to blame Barack Obama as if he is the man who invented food stamps, you should know that the first time food stamps were used in the US was between 1939 and 1943, the food stamp program similar to what we use today was introduced between 1961 and 1964 with the food stamp act being approved officially in 1964. Our president was born in 1961, so you see without time travel he could not have invented them. What he has done is try to provide a way for millions of children to have a warm meal once or twice a day. You say you'r anti-murder and anti-abortion but do you care so little about the children after they are born?

Next you seem to be blaming the poor and the president for the failure of the Hostess company, which shows you know absolutely nothing about why the company failed. For the record it was bad money management by the rich executives that ran the company. While in the process of going bankrupt the CEO gave himself a 600% raise and gave his top executive officers 100% raises while laying off thousands to pay for it. Tell how did the poor and the president cause this? Seems like free will and bad choices made by the people in charge.

Moving on, you claim to have never received government aid, even once. So then i must ask, did you go to public school? That is government aid, did your kids get scholarships? Did they go to public school? Many scholarships and all public schools come from government aid. Are you retired and getting medicaid and/or Social security? Did your parents? Those are government aid. Ever go to the hospital or the doctor? You realize many of the doctors you see received government aid and in going to see them you indirectly got it as well. You may think or want to believe you have never been given help from the government but you are wrong. You are no better than the rest of us.

As for women's rights. Not every woman who uses birth control is a whore, many women need the effects of birth control to manage other diseases and mental disorders. Do you not believe people should have access to medications? As for abortions there are medical applications for those as well, many women find that after they have gotten pregnant their bodies cannot support the pregnancy and that continuing the pregnancy would kill both the moth and the baby. Should these women just die for something they could not control?

Outside of medical reasons for abortion we have children who get molested by fathers, grandfathers, family friends, cousins, or by random strangers who kidnap and/or assault them and end up pregnant while still too young to give birth without dying. Are these victims whores? Should they be forced to give birth to a baby that might kill them? Should they then be forced to sit through custody hearings where the rapist wants parental rights after his jail sentence?

Next, you issues with gun laws. If you do not believe in murder you have no use for a gun outside of hunting. If you are a hunter the guns you legally own are not in danger of being taken away. I see you mention that you need a gun to protect yourself from loose women, I highly doubt that. first just because a woman likes to have sex does not mean she is going to force it on someone, women are generally not rapists. Second rape rarely ever has anything to do with the act of sex, it's more about dominating someone to steal their power. Perhaps if these women are all over you you should consider spending you time in less unsavory places. Try church instead of the bar.

Continued from last post.

Speaking of church, you mention prayer being removed from school being the reason the country is in the state it is. I would like to know which prayer you want to see back in school. America is home to many religions and children would learn nothing if we had to spend time each day teaching them prayers fro every religion. Would you be okay if the school you children go to suddenly brought prayer back but the only prayers allowed were Muslim? What if the only prayers allowed where Jewish? Maybe Catholic? How about Pagan? It's not so easy to choose is it? You cannot force your faith on someone if you will not accept having their faith forced on you.
