"Commie" ? For real ?
Let me know when you want to compare your service to our country with mine. That ought to be interesting.
Meanwhile, maybe they should have taught you in school that communism is an economics system, not a political system, and there is no reason a true American can't believe in communism.
That pesky Constitution allows others to believe in any economic system they chose. Why I bet you are one of Communisms best friends - just keep supporting politicians who give tax breaks to companies who send jobs to Communist China - think Romney.
My weapons are doing fine and I look forward to regulations that take them away from people who can't be trusted to use them wisely. If that's you, don't blame me.
Merry Christmas.

I have seen it over and over at the grocery store registers. These people DO have their new cell phones, cars etc. I'm all for drug testing if your receiving government assistance but at who's expense is that? I also would like to know who is responsible in this county for monitoring these people? I know of many that have felony drug convictions and also get re-arrested for felonies while receiving these benefits. Some of these people don't even have the kids in their custody they say they have and now pregnant again. They get more money and stamps the more kids they have. We need accountability for dispersing these benefits!
mabey the person that is in charge of saying who gets them should be drugged tested or fired

Good point, you might be right.
Maybe it's unfair to single out any of them. They all seem to make sure they and theirs are well taken care of - at our expense.

Groceries things I can't afford and I work full-time.

I'm almost broke until the end of the month from paying my bills and taking care of family.
There is something wrong with this picture.
taxpayer, I wanted to ask, How are you doing now? I hope your doing alright.

I have tattoos, an OK phone (I hate cell phones) and drive a paid for SUV, several years old. All I acquired over the years, not recently. I can assume, if I ever need assistance, all of you will be judging me based on outward appearance instead of actual knowledge.

People look down on me for using WIC and Food Stamps, but then again those that are judging me, don't realize that I am running errand's and do shopping for the elderly and those that are unable to get it for themselves. They have no vehicle or can't get out of their homes and I can run errands on my lunch or after work. I also shop thrift sores and gather them blankets and coats and whatever necessities they made need.

My payback, the satisfaction in knowing I have helped someone and I get the rewards points on my Ingles and Bi-Lo cards....

Keep judging, while their are several abusing the system, their are several who aren't.

As for all the hiring signs, I call bullshit. Because my daughter has been looking for a job for months and no luck. They want you to have experience, but they don't give experience. We have nothing but fast food restaurants and expensive stores and ton's of thrift stores. You have to be related to someone to get hired or have sex with the boss.

Getting assistance isn't as easy as most of you think it is. Maintaining and keeping it is, there is no follow-up to it. But to actually get assistance, is a ton of paperwork and they want you to do it all over the internet, rarely do you see a live person anymore.

So while you are standing in line passing judgement on someone, maybe you should judge yourself....

I disagree with some of what you said. No you do not have to be related to someone or have sex with a boss to get hired. Education is essential but not necessarily criteria for getting hired. Show up and ask for a job. Keep a list and go back again and maybe again. An employer has to see some energy in the person they are hiring. Unless you want the CEO's job you can find work.

Turniptown,I am addressing this message to you ,but it is also ment for other members.This woman that posts under the name of PRuth came blowing in Union county and immediately start3ed deeveloping dissension between long time members of this forum.Since she has been on the forum ,I can't remember anything that she has added for betterment.When noi members came to her rescue concerning our disagreement she insulted all other members,by thinking no one had a to withhold their opinion.She like many christians are full of hate and judging a person only because of their religious convictions.That is why she zeroed in on me,thinking I would be an easy target and at the same time establishing herself as a leader of the comminity.She is wrong on both counts.That's my opinion and I am a person that respects the opinions of all others.To organize a group of members against another shows a lack of character and a lot of pure hatefulness and disrespect.The object here isn't to gain support ,but to alert some to this woman's motive. She's a born trouble maker.

Thanks, I had pretty much come to the same conclusion. I believe and giving everyone a chance, and remained quiet when she first appeared on the scene. She really doesn't bring anything new to this forum. I have pretty much seen it all on here. It would be nice if some of the people would develop some different interest . There is only so much Florida bashing we can take. They seemed to just re-hash the same crap.

blairsville devil, Did you not start the argument with that poor person? and you got angry when they fought back.
If people read all your other posts, they would know your the one dishing out hatefulness and disrespect! You also called that person names such as a word that starts with a b. on the church thread!

turniptown, I agree there should Not be any fool language on a public forum. I see where both sides are coming from but that does not mean I argee with blairsville devil attacking a person. I do mostly argee with some of your points, if it were not for the goverment some people would have straved to death because they may not have families or any one for that matter. It is very hard for people right now.

Jenkins drinks and that's when his posts become nastier and uglier.
Yes, he starts it and always has. He did the same on Blairsville.com until everyone was sick of him. Even people who tried to like him ended up disliking the Devil.
If it wasn't insulting religion, it was insulting people in Blairsville, or women. Funny thing. Someone took one of his insulting posts about the women in Blairsville being ugly and sent it to the NGN. It was published. We all had a good laugh about that one.

Ruth is right. Education is key and so is spunk. The tattoo lady sounds like the type that is on assistance and hates everyone for their ability to survive without handouts. There are jobs. Anyone I know who wants to work, is working.

When is the last time you actually looked for employment. I guessing it has been a while. The old way of looking for a job is long gone. You don't just show up at a business and talk to someone. It is all done by computer or phone now. In days gone by you could drop by an talk to a manager and let him know you were interested in a job. Now days you are just one of hundreds of resume and applications. This pretty much hold true for places like Walmart, Home Depot and the like and even more so with bigger companies. While I agree there is food stamp fraud what are you going to do with the people that can't find a job. These people are not going to starve. If it wasn't for the food stamp program there would be a whole lot of stealing going on. People are not going to let their families go hungry.

Drug test all food stamp, government assisted under 60 Y.O.. That should clean out the riff raff. I overheard one the other day inline complaining that their check didn't provide any monies for cigarettes or lottery tickets. Got into a nearly new Ford Fusion.
Drug test all blog users who gripe about what other people buy with food stamps. Don't you have anything better to do than watch card swipes? I've watched what people put in their carts for years. One in ten is not a self-indugent pig putting the absolutely worst food in their carts no matter how they pay for it.
