Yesterday must have been foodstamp replenishing day fat peopel with hundreds of poiunds of groceries piled in trains of carts - I was in line and there was a young man standing in front of me he had about 10 dollars worth of groceries, I had about the same. He turned around and looked at me and said People that work don't get to eat so good do we. I said nope then he said if I had to depend on someone else to feed me I'd just go our in the woods and blow my brains out, he said I don't see how any Man could take handouts every month and still show his face in public.

I had to completely agree with him.

I totally agree with you. The way times are now you bout have to let your kids eat first & go back and eat their crumbs. These people that have their good jobs ought to have plenty of money to buy groceries instead of $10 worth first off oh wait a minute my bad their above people who gets foodstamps tho.. It pisses me offf that ppl can't mind their own business and go on without talking about others. I work, but have 3 kids and a husband that is disabled and he refuses to sit down one minute to even consider trying to get a check. Are you gonna judge me? I have to depend on a few foodstamps a month too, but you know what so did my mom when she was raising 4 kids on her own working her butt off too.. Geez! You know never know peoples story until you walk in their shoes so don't judge. One of these days you will be standing in line, buggy full of groceries with a food stamp card in hand well you wont see this woman judge you..we need to pray for our economy instead of pass judgement.

you do without a lot of stuff? i bet you draw enough food stamps to pay 2 car payments!! you all who work, manage to get food stamps, wic and all the other nice commodities are a hell of a lot better of than those of us who work and pay the f'n taxes that allow you to get those f'n benfits while we try to figure out how to make it till the next payday, the pay we get after the taxes are ripped out for the f'n deadbeats!!!don't give me no sad as* story, your situation is at your own doing. if you hate getting food stamps so bad, get another f'n job and pay cash for your groceries!! yea that's what I thought!
For sure

There's still time for the country to go down hill like Greece. We ALL may end up on food stamps the way things are going. Anybody learn anything about The Great Depression? It's going to happen again eventually. Rich are getting richer and the poorer are getting poorer and the Middles Class pays for it all. Eventually we are going to stop getting worked to death and quit. It's coming. It's not a question of if its going to happen, it's a matter of when. Socialism doesn't work people!!!!

pretty soon there aint gonna be no food stamps for nobody! the well is running dry! they should give out commodities like they did when i was growing up. you ate podered eggs powdered milk yellow corn meal and anything else u could get your hands on. you didnt lay back and throw tv dinners chips pop and fast food to the kids and what ever they whine and want... and now these women get their ssi food stamps sutitily bills paid medical care and move a man in that works on the side and they have fancy cars any kind of game you want to play.. fancy clothes purses and lots of up to date stuff to decorate yeah they got it all. tallie up the math!! working people should be the first ones to these fringe benefits they pay the taxes in and sorry ass people benefit from it. i have worked all my life and do you know i come about 20.00 a month from getting any assistance of anykind. id give my twenty dollars to trade with them.. and they go to the dr.s and load up on pills and take their trips and vacations... hell yeah im pissed! but we know all this its time to start reporting these sorry dead beats! they know all the ropes but eventually they are gonna hang their selves!!!!

What I think the tax payers are trying to say is...If you are working and trying to make a living and also receive assistance to help supplement your income that is one thing. But to sit back, nothing wrong with you, nothing wrong with your man, collecting ssi for an ailment that doesn't exist, having more children each year when you can't even afford the first one, being raised on assistance by your parents as a way of life and then you repeating the same cycle...its called fraud! I for one have no problem with somebody that is down on their luck, struggling and using the system for what it's intended to do. But when you see these people out, able bodied, 4+ children, living in subsidized housing, hiding a working boyfriend on the side and abusing the system, that is a problem. Anybody that disagrees with my statements is committing fraud and abusing the help. I can't wait til they force drug testing on recipients. And I also agree with a previous poster about bringing commodities back.

My husband works every day, he comes in with his hands bleeding, sometimes working 12+ hours a day. I worked two jobs for over ten years. I limited myself to one child because I knew I couldn't afford any more. It isn't my husband's fault his ex run off and left him to raise their kids. We get about 300 dollars a month food stamps, which we are very grateful for. What burns my biscuits are these dopeheads in Manchester and every where else that trades or sells their stamps, while letting their babies starve.

I have worked all my life and now that I am disable I can't get enough to do me from one month to the next. I sure don't drive a new car or live in a nice house. I would love to go back to work but my health problems want let me. I sure lived alot better working than I do now. I have no problem with the disable and the elderly getting food stamps it these big able bodyed men and women that to sorry to work. Some of them are to sorry to take a bath or comb their hair. The government has destored the young people giving them free hand outs. I sure never grow up with a silver spoone or a bed of roses. We had to work.

what high paying jobs are you referring to? you frigging moron, did you forget this is clay county, s/e ky, the appalachians, one of the poorest spots in the nation? there are no high paying jobs. there are jobs slightly abover minimum wage but for that reason there are higher tax brackets, so even though they make more, they pay more, which essentially means that come out the same as one who works the min. wage job. everyone and i mean everyone is struggling to make ends meet. even the people with those high paying jobs you refer to, they have mortgages, car payments, insurance and all that good stuff to pay. far as i see it, in this day and time, with the economy rocky and the government on the verge of collapse, we are all in danger. better get ready people the days are winding down and if you can't see that then your just totally blind.
