I'm from Kentucky; moving back to Lakeland or Polk County probably in spring 2010. I've applied for disability here and currently getting $200 month in Food Stamps.

How much does a person get in Lakeland or Polk County, if your disability income is only going to be about $873 per month???

We need to cut out food stamps alltogether, If you cant survive on your own you should starve! Move to Florida, we dont need your worthless freeloading a$$ here in Kentucky!

I don't know how all these people get all this money in foodstamps. I was recently denied due to the fact I have two sets of properties even though I haven't had a real job in a year and seven months, except for a temp job and haven't had that for 6 weeks. I was denied due to my little assets was more than the program. If I received it I would have gotten $80 a month. Another one got it and is receiving $10 a month. This has proved to me you can't rely on the government and now I'm an independent.

It's sad there are so many childish, ignorant people in the world. U don't have authority 2 judge N-E-1. There's a place for "people" like you. HELL. I don't get food stamps either,but I'm glad there's help 4 those who do. Do you wish that all the family members & friends you have that may be or once have received assistance starve too? Think before you speak. EVERYBODY at one point needs help. 4 all u no, your mom may have gotten stamps before. Thats why they created a govn't to make those decisions not you. You must be unhappy wiyh yourself. I'll pray 4 U.

Actually, I think the requirements depend on your household situation. African Americans get denied also. I'm African American and I can't get them either, however: I have Caucasian associates who do. I don't no about you, but I was never asked my race when I applied. The information thats entered into the computer determines your eligibility not the person who is entering it. All of this complaining, maybe all of you unhappy people should get 2gether and try to come up with a proposal to submit to the government and get things changed. The government doesn't read posts on the internet.

You must be depressed. Are your pockets suffering from the help these people are asking for? NO! I bet if you qualified, you'd be getting them to. Obviously, all the people who can't get foodstamps wanted them becasue you took the time out of your so-called "busy, independent" life to apply and were denied. Now all the "BITTER" people who are denied have negative comments. I bet if you all were approved, your comment would be different.

Then why to I see so many people in Walmart buying with food stamps while huge gold chains hang off their necks. The Food stamp admins should sit there and wait for them to come through the lines and confiscate their benefits on the spot.

When I needed food stamps, they counted my IRA's as assets and denied me. I guess gold chains and Rolex's don't count as assets.
Oh wait, that's right they bought them with drug money so that's off the books. Now I get it.

The point is if you are unemployed, you should automatically qualify for food stamps. why does America save so little, because every penny saved is counted against them then they do need help.
the bitterness is in funding those who work the system, while some of us who need the help can't get it, but still have to pay for those who do cheat the system.

i truly appreciate what you are saying...but you have to admit it is just a little aggravating that our country sends out BILLIONS of dollars to any country with a sob story....when we have our own problems to deal with including STARVING PEOPLE....all that money we send out could be helping our own right here....maybe even expand the qualifications for food stamps to include those that may otherwise not qualify.

i remember what my drill sergeant in basic training said....and those "words of wisdom" have stuck with me over the years...

and i quote "i think it is great that we live in one of the greatest country's in the world....a country that is so great that we can come to the rescue, or help just about anyone else in the world that may be in need.....however....you can not help your neighbor clean their backyard....until you clean your own"

those words have never rang more true like they do right now...

we are in desperate times right now...and as selfish as it may seem...we need to tell the rest of the world that our services will no longer be available for awhile as we are "helping ourselves" right now.

i do not even try for foodstamps as a matter of personal pride, and when times get too tough...there are all kinds of services OTHER than a simple hand out...there are barter services, food banks, and a myriad of other services that one can simply volunteer a small amount of time for bags of food to get you through a rough patch.

i truly do understand some of these folks frustrations when they do the right thing for years....and when they need help....they are denied...only to watch someone else drive off in a lexus with a food stamp card hanging on that "gold chain".

true....some are being judgmental.....but some do have some very valid points..

i think what will be a big help....is if people would start acting as a community again...instead of locking themselves away in their electronic filled homes, bring back the "community pot luck" dinners.

that old story about "stone soup"...sure has a renewed meaning in these harsh days

god bless you and may you derive all the happiness from life that you can

yes...because overstating the obvious when jobs are scarce right now....is sooooooooo helpful too.

i have a family of 4 including me my wife and 2 kids and my wife works her ass off to support us all. she has many health problems which effect her work performance. we have foodstamps among other things. i dont work but trust me i dont need any of you fuckers comments about it you are obviously idiots. the reason i dont work is because i have depression problems that psychiatrists cant find a name for which PREVENT me from working. one of them including social anxiety disorder. so look up social anxiety disorder dumb asses and actually learn why some people cant work because their having a hard enough time dealing with themselves on a day to day basis. you think you got it hard working. id love to beable to work and do what normal ppl do on a daily basis but i cant so as a human being do you think people who are prevented to take care of themselves should have to fend for themselves while others swim in money. what the fuck is the world comin to? dont people realize theres more to life then another dollar or how the fuck people get it? life is about survival. without people in poverty getting money from the government what the fuck do you think people would be doing to get it just to survive? i know what id do if my kids didnt get those foodstamps...the only thing i could. dont judge me...ill survive if that means robbin you.

There's something wrong with you if you think it's everyone else's responsibility to take care of you and your kids because you can't. Stop having kids when you can't take care of the ones you have. Stop complaining about rich people when their taxes pay your bills. Don't use some bullsh!t excuse that you're "depressed" so you can't get a job; 1/2 the country is depressed and we still manage to take care of ourselves. And if you try to rob somebody, Dyj, you deserve the bullet you get.

$16! Seriously. They don't give a crap about your disability.
