Ok, I am sick and tired of going to Walmart and when I finish my shopping standing in line watching the people in front of me buying expensive groceries and whipping out their EBT food stamp card to pay. If that is not bad enough, the adult and their children are all talking or texting on their expensive a$# cell phones!! I work hard for my paycheck each week and it makes me sick to know my taxes are paying for these idiots to live off of. If you can afford a cell phone, you can afford to buy your own damn groceries!

I think fat *ssholes looking down their noses at food stamp use instead of minding their own f*cking business is bad enough. Especially when you're willing to paint an extremely large number of people in a struggling economy with the same judgemental brush based on one or two experiences you've had while shopping.

In short, I think your entire post is mean-spirited garbage, and you should probably shut the f*ck up.

Thank you Stinky Pete. I don't think I find one instance that I haven't agreed with you yet :).

As for the sentiment of the original poster...I see where you're coming from but you're somewhat misguided. Not all foodstamp users are abusing the system. However, I get a similar feeling of disgust when I work my butt off to barely scrape by and I know people on welfare, foodstamps, tenncare, and whatever else while they're dealing dope and raking in about 400 dollars a day. I also get the disgusted feeling when I see people begging for money to get enough gas to get home and then they go buy a quart of beer.

On the other hand, sometimes a person has a prepaid phone that they got at tax time...and perhaps that phone is the only form of communication. Perhaps the mother is divorced and the father pays for the cell phone minutes for the kids. You have no idea of these peoples' circumstances or situations. Do not jump too quickly to judge those that are down on their luck.

The problem is the system that doesn't do thorough checks to see if people are abusing these methods of assistance. People know how to get through the loopholes and milk every dollar. If you feel that strongly about the situation, I suggest you contact your representatives and ask for a reform in the way those programs are managed and maintained.

I suspect the 'ir8gurlie' is merely a troll manufacturing some slight that probably never occurred.

Food stamps are a very minimal source of income for those below the poverty line.

It's a few hundred bucks a month, at best.

Is your claim that people on food stamps should all live in mud huts with no shoes?

If you are worried about government spending, cut the defense budget, which accounts for more than half of our national debt. Not someone buying food.

Also, stop shopping at Wal*Mart. It's unAmerican All that crap is made in communist China.

Screw the cell phone, fool. The REAL concern is why are they allowed to send their EBT money directly to China?

Oh, right, because of daddy's Bush's NAFTA.

I can just imagine you sitting there, with one hand on the keyboard and one on your privates, furiously masturbating as your little neurons weakly fire away in an attempt to give me the what-for.

It would almost be cute, if it weren't so stupid.

Fact of the matter is this there are jobs out there it is a matter of are you willing to work ? I have never had a problem finding a job I will not look to the government for a handout I understand in some circumstances that it is nessicary for people to get help from the government but at the same time there are those that take advantage of the system because they can .... America is in the shape it is because of freeloaders .....wonder what would happen if they was cut off ? I try not to think about the stuff that isn't right but try to do right in my own life and not worry about those that don't ....... You reap what you sow !!!!!

Indeed. Although not the 'freeloaders' at the bottom of the totem pole you try to blame. The REAL 'freeloaders' are the big corporations like Cargil or Haliburton who manipulate the market and legislation to benefit their own bottom-line. They pay less taxes than the average American, and receive all kinds of government-subsidized perks, all the while getting you to blame some single mom getting 150 bucks a month for food while they rape the Fed for millions.

I understand ur point but fact of the matter is that when all the money that goes out of the government goes here or there its all adds up my point is that there are those who manipulate the system to there own advantage and the working class people are the ones who have to pay for those that won't work america would be a better place if they would quit giving handouts to all and make those who are able to work work I mean think about it all the people who work in america pay ss and medicare taxes think about all the money in one week that comes in and then think about the people u know that abuse the system because they can ...
