We all need help sometimes.

Too bad these places are the fallback option for lazy folks rather than the place that someone really in dire times goes for help.

I absolutely have no problem helping someone in need. But when you have these generations upon generations of welfare bums that keep pumping out kids they cant afford and make NO attempt to help themselves thats when I draw the line.

Getting rid of food banks and food stamps is a good first step in the right direction in stamping out America's obesity problem. When you have to work for your meals you eat less and when all of your meals are freebies you tend to eat more.

Dumb tea baggers are funny with their theories based on imaginary data from a ignorant minds. America's obesity problem comes from poverty, it isn't caused by programs aimed to help people living in it. And you dumbasses wonder why the world laughs at you?

Yeah, that's real logical. Ask those starving Ethiopians why poverty isn't making them a bunch of fat, lazy slobs.

Bugs? Have to cut some rotten trees down for that. Cant help you with banana leaves, and need to find some dog meat. The ghettos are probably littered with it from dog fighting.

Dont forget about malaria and hiv.

Can anyone tell me why the folks who get food stamps children still need free breakfast, lunch and after school food?
I would think one or the other should be a rule.
whens the last time you seen a welfare mom get up at 6 AM to cook breakfast for their kids before they go to school?

just think you're paying for those not so free breakfasts ,lunches and dinners....
