I don't cre what u topix people say I don't think the govrrmemt helps out enough. I only get 423.00 month in food stamps to feed me and 3 kids, that's not enough! What am I supposed to do? I don't work anymore because I have anxiety and some nerve damage in my back. The gooverment should help people like me out more. My HUD only pays 300.00 month of my rent. I don't do drugs just need help. Is there any more assistance. In this area?? Food bank, clothing drives??? I just get mad when I get on my computer and see people gettin mad at people like me that gets help.

Yes I smoke but I'm a 26 year old grown woman so I can do what I want, what's that gotta do with anything? I have 3 kids and only get 100 month in chIld support from my youngest's daddy.my other 2 dad won't pay shit. I'm On fixed income because I'm disabled that's not my fault. With 3 kids as a single mom I should get enough on my ebt card to cover all our groceries not just some of them. Trust me if I could work I would love to.

90% of trashy bums in this town are runnin around here smokin like a freight train, car full of kids buyin food on stamps then droppin cash on cigs. It makes me sick the low life scum that gets food stamps and sells them or trades them for dope.

you need to find a way to support yourself. You keep alluding to this fantasy of the government paying for your lifestyle. The truth is there isn't any government money there is only tax dollars. You are not taking money from the government you are taking money from everyone who works and pays taxes.
for sure

I feel like you just wrote this crock to yank our chains! If you are seriously wanting people to feel sorry for you, it's not likely to happen. You mention anxiety & nerve damage, do you also get a disability check? If not, why not?The best advice I can offer you is to sell your computer, you'll have a little extra money there, and at the same time eliminate the internet service bill.It would also seem to me that you should be able to feed your family on $423.00 a month.In fact I know you could if you actually cook, instead of just buying junk.Pinto beans & rice are very cheap! Try shopping at save-a-lot, I've done it for years.

Im on a fixed income to but u know what. I dont buy cigs and other unneeded items. I have a few electronic thigs I have recieved as presents over the past few yrs. If u have internet then u can apply online for help. U dont get help unless u first get up and look for it. As far as foodstamps. That program is to help not supply it all. Instead of purchasing namebrand foods try the store brand. It works. If u are seriously running low on food quit buying pop, candy, chips and cakes. Those things are unhealthy for kids and high prieced. That will make enough to buy a few more meals. I have cable and internet for my child and myself but it is the last bill I worry about paying. If I have enough I pay it in full on time. If not it will get shut off b4 my child goes without food.

LOL...423.00 a month food stamps is way too low you should be getting 800.00 a month and the Government..ie...us tax payers is only paying 300.00 a month on your rent...my God...you should be living in a huge house for free.The Goverment...ie...us tax payers...should be paying your electric bill and buying you a brand new car also and paying your full coverage insurance.Go on down to WalMart and grab a buggie...heck make it two...fill those suckers up with whatever you want...may I suggest a couple of boxes of comdoms..wait in line for awhile and I'm sure somebody will see you standing there and pay for everything for you.

In order for Government to give you anything, they first must take away from someone else!!
We are getting sick of supporting Socialism. Just like you, It doesn't work!

why don't you take your children to daycare and let the government pay for that too...go get A JOB. But wait? You would rather stay at home in your pajamas and watch TV right? Or why don't you get a nasty tatoo on your chest. Sound familiar? I thought so. Get a LIFE. You can't live on foodstamps all of your life, but you probably will try. Good luck on that future of yours. Setting a really fine example for your children.

I said earlier I have a fixed income fom disability because I have anxiety and nerve damage. I'm not tryin to sound ungrateful just think I should get more help than I do. I hardly ever get to buy stuff I want due to buying food and bills.

Just because some of us are poor we should still be able to buy stuff we want occasionally. Not everyone is born into money and gets stuff handed to them

You hardly ever get to buy the stuff you want? That statement implies that you at least get some of the stuff you want sometimes. I feel sorry for the working folk that NEVER get to buy any of the stuff they want because they have to spend their pay-check on bills, food & housing.
