There is nothing wrong with food stamps or any kind of government assistance if your a single mother trying to raise your babies and FYI the food stamp place looks at your check stubs this lady is probably lucky to get 200 dollars a month which is not much considering how high grocery are these days!!!!She would get more if she didn't work that's how screwed up the system is!!

All food stamps do is cause the price of grocerys to rise. Its unfair for my hard earned cash to have to compete with free food stamps at the store.

Food stamps should be based on body weight, if you weigh four hundred pounds you get cut fatty

So your saying you don't like helping the ones in need of help? did Jesus say im not going to die for all these sinners I will just let them rot in hell; No he died for all us sinners so we could be forgiving and some day have a home in heaven... I don't mind helping I saw my mother struggle so much as a kid that I would never want to see a mother do what my mom did...DON'T BE ASHAMED OF FOODSTAMPS ITS THERE FOR HELP SO USE IT IF YOU NEED IT :-)

How Pitiful is it that a able bodied mentally competent person cant feed themselves? Go to wal mart on food stamp day. See the fat slobs filling their carts with junk food. see them pay with a EBT card. It might be Ok if it was temporary but its now a lifestyle. There should be shame in drawing welfare. Folks should have some pride.

The majority of them have to use the motorized carts to haul their fat butts around because they don't have the ability to walk through the whole store..........but Little Debbie's......here I come!

What needs to be done is only FOOD should be for foodstamps. I'm not talking sodas, chips, deli sliced meat,$200 worth of steaks to have the neighbors over and act high and mighty. There should be coupons like for WIC where you can get certain healthy items and ONLY healthy items. Nothing in boxes but food prepared from scratch except for staples, like macaroni, dried beans, peanut butter, eggs, milk, cheese, and certain cuts of meat. No sodas, no candy, no chips, no snack foods, just good healthy staples like they use to give in commodities. They could even give canned meat, pork, beef, and chicken. It won't go bad and is in fact very good. It's not a 3 inch steak, but it's healthy and will keep you alive. I am sick of watching the people in front of me at Wal-Mart eating better than I do and ME paying for it.

Responsible people would have had life insurance, especially at a young age it doesn't cost much. There are jobs to be had just not people that want them. Kicking people when they are down? Then get the hell up and support yourself. Everyone has problems, but there is no free ride.......well, I correct myself.........I guess there is if you just plain don't care. It's not OUR job to take care of you and your kids. That is what jobs are for. The government will PAY you to go back to school and get an education so you can get a job that pays more than minimum wage.......USE IT!
You are a smartass, but thats why your paying for my food, and whatever the hell else I want/need. I enjoy living off you. Keep up the good work.

Y'all have the wrong outlook on foodstamps I might be wrong but don't we have a thing called taxes and o don't you get a W2 and turn that into the IRS to get money back at the end of the year so there's your theory on they are taking yalls money I myself do not need foodstamps because my man actually works but if someday I might need help my happy rear will gladly walk into the foodstamp place :-)

I don't who you were talking to, but I for one, would not hesitate to help someone that really needed it. That's the key word, really needing it. People whine because they can't find a job anywhere......well if it wasn't for 50 body piercings and their body covered in tatoos there is a possibility they could FIND a job. If they have the money for the tatoos and piercings, why couldn't they buy their own food. Even after foodstamps, they can buy cigarettes, beer, lottery tickets, and enough dog food for 15 huge dogs. Get the picture now? They don't have jobs because they don't have to HAVE jobs....the government will take care of them and they know it. How many 'single' mothers have a man living with them that they don't report his income to DHS? How many women don't get married because they wouldn't get as much help from the government if they were married? How many women keep on having kids (at our expense as well) because they can get MORE government help? You know what? It's all going to come to a screeching halt when the government goes belly up and it's going to happen. What are they going to do when we get a President and Congress that is tired of borrowing half the money we spend? There won't BE money for foodstamps.....then what? There are some people that really try that I have absolutely NO problem with them getting help. It's the other 90% that I have the problem and you know the ones I am talking about. There should be drug tests for ALL receipients. If there is tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs, or anything else in their system that doesn't have any use to the human body, they should be banned for LIFE from help. If they can buy that kind of stuff, they can darn well buy groceries. If they have $5,000 worth of tatoos on their body and piercings they should be banned until the tatoos are gone, covered up, and all piercings removed. Even David Beckham has arms full of tatoos, but you know what? When he wears a long sleeve shirt, you can't see any of them. He KNOWS that sometimes it is best for them not to show. Poorer people use them as a status symbol........hey man, look at my new tatoo! I paid big bucks for it right after I went to the beer store and bought us enough beer for the WHOLE weekend. Those are the people that don't deserve help. If they can't manage their money any better than that, then let them starve to death. If they have children, take the kids away from them until they shape up and get a job. That way the kids would at least get the benefit of the help and a bath once in awhile. You know these people, you see them everyday. These are the ones I am talking about that don't deserve help. They don't try at all!

Do you have NO PRIDE? What are you going to do when the government no longer has the money to support you? What are you going to do then?

I agree with you 100% that's why I said IF YOU NEED IT I don't agree with lazy ass men not supporting their family and expect their wives/ girlfriends to go sign up on foodstamps and hud and whatever else there is I am not for that at all what I was saying is that single mothers who try hard and still can't make it they are the ones that need the help

i'm retired but I also raised 2 daughters never drawed welfare But i did worked two jobs, helped raise 4 more children, we learned to eat what we had, some days it wasn't much but other times was alittle better, believed me we didn't go to ever zip rip shop around, we didn't have it to spend,you know beans and potatoes corn bread was awful good back then it still is today. The young ones complain about food stamps, When u retire the elders can't get alot of help if u draw 10.00 more they will cut your stamps. and they are the ones that have worked and payed the taxes. they should be the ones to get help, they make a choice every month where to buy medicine or food or pay their bills. SO WHEN YOU STAND IN LINE TO GET STAMPS OR COMMODITIES THINK ABOUT WHO HAS WORKED AND PAYED THE TAXES OF STANDING ON THEIR FEET ALL DAY EVERY DAY SO YOU CAN BE FED.

We need the food stamp program. Without it, it would be impossible for lower income people to find the discretionary funds to afford their cigarettes and lottery tickets.
