I think the point was if you're destitute enough to need Foodstamps then you should be spending cash on your necessities! Cigarettes aren't a need!!! But then again Lung Cancer from Smoking and Obesity are the two leading causes of preventable death in this country! So smoke and eat on you gluttonous, pathetic, chain smoking, lazy drain on decent tax paying citizens!

I'm just happy we live in a society where there is available help for those who truly need it.
As for the people that don't really need food stamps,but get them anyway that's just their choice. I am very happy to pay my taxes to help.
I hope and pray that I never find myself in such a situation.
you all are stupid

You realize the amount of idiots on here that would love to find out where a single mother and three kids live. Here's the deal, as long as I don't see you being a smart a**, I will leave you be but, be warned, I will be watching.

The argument was "buying expensive steaks with money you didn't work for." Not "you shouldn't receive EBT period." The whole point was if you're broke, make the money last instead of buying expensive food... Some people are too damn stupid to work though... As this thread shows. I'd rather they sat on their lazy asses and ate their steaks than having to work along side them.

We got to start somewhere don't we? If you look at everything seperate, then of course it looks like a small issue. If you put all the little stuff together, well then you have the "grand scheme." How is the "grand scheme" going to improve if the issues are "no big deal" and we don't change anything?

If a person is stupid enough to spend ebt on expensive steaks, it implies that person is disabled, because stupidity is a disability. But you don't know that person. Just because they're stupid doesn't mean they're evil. They might run into a burning building to save your life. Never judge strangers till after they've been your neighbors long enough for you to know them well. The root causes of hate are lack of communication, lack of knowledge, and lack of understanding.

And it might not even be stupidity. They might buy expensive steaks once per year, and eat gruel the rest of the year.

My little girl and I received EBT for about a year while we were kind of in a bad spot. I was so thankful for that! However, I did see so many people being wasteful with their benefits. We were staying with my parents at the time and although we didn't receive tons and tons of benefits every month - it was definitely enough to get us through, if you are competent enough to budget accordingly.

I took advantage of coupons and sales and purchased meat in large quantities at times. We did have steak sometimes, but only if I got a really great deal on it. That's not to say we ate unhealthy food either. I think people just need to use a little common sense when they receive their benefits, plan meals and use coupons. It really was quite easy to get us through the month - and that was even buying groceries for my parents too.

I'm not sure what we would have done had the EBT program not existed. We really needed it. Perhaps it would be a good idea for the government to require recipients to go to classes on meal planning and/or budgeting when signing up for benefits. It seems as if some people just zip through the market and toss all kinds of crap in their basket, not giving it a second thought.

Maybe someday soon some of these employers enjoying record high profits and record low taxes will start sharing some of that profit their employees made them and won't have to depend on food stamps anymore.
It would be nice, however it will never be!

Anyone with an EBT card can buy what they want. Just because someone buys a ribeye doesnt mean they do not deserve to eat decent food. Maybe they wanted to feed their children something half way decent. Maybe it was on sale, who knows. Do not judge anyone. Your tax dollars are being used to kill people in wars. Dont bitch about what someone is spending their EBT benefits on. Its none of your damn business !!!! Who ever said snack cakes, sodas and chips should not me purchased is a twat too. So you mean, poor families with kids cant give their child a soda or snack cake with lunch sometimes? Bitch to your government and tell them to lower the price of fresh fruit and veg. Your f*ckin stupid asses that say stupid a** sh*t.

Then the government should make everyone take classes. Even people who are not on EBT blow their money on junk and stupid shit, write cold checks, have to borrow money, or get on the EBT program. Maybe everyone needs to take a class on how to blow their nose and wipe their own asses. That makes as much sence as the comment to take a class in order to get an EBT card!!!

My whole post went over your head I think. Your sarcasm isn't helpful and didn't really add anything to the conversation. Thanks though!'Preciate ya!
