This statement....
""With certain exceptions, people who get food stamps may be required to work or participate in a training program"
Says nothing about LOOKING for work. Does it?
Notice the word "may", there is no requirement.

Good point, LOOKING for work is not required.

Okay, so she's getting loans and grants for school, yet she's supposed to stay at home and take care of her kids?
You DO realize that not ALL programs allow you to take classes online, right? Do YOU want a nurse taking care of you who has never been in a lab or clinical setting?
And what, in the meantime, is she supposed to do to feed her children, clothe her children, have a roof over her head?
And how many people like you would rant and rave over the fact that she's getting assistance, yet can pay for the internet in order to DO classes online, IF she can?
You people just don't think things through.
Actually she could take her prerequisite courses, English, History, Math, Biology, etc on line so that when her children are in school she would be ready to take her clinicals.

Because every woman on earth should be a nurse.

Good grief.

Why don't you just admit that you believe all welfare is wrong, except for the corporate kind, and that anyone on food stamps or TANF is a lowlife who shouldn't have kids?

It says nothing about looking for work, may or not. I says may have to be currently employed or in training. Not looking.

But, at least you got up off your cyber ass, and actually did some research. Good for you. Next time, you might want to do that BEFOREHAND.

They want to HAVE their cake AND eat it, too. There are absolutely NO shades of gray in their narrow-minded little worlds, everything is a black/white extreme.
What I find odd are the inconsistencies in this type of extreme thinking. Like all their compassion reserved for the embryo/fetus who has no capacity to appreciate it or even want it, but not a shred for the women facing unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies. Of course, that also highlights their blame game mentality. And yet, they're blind to it! Very odd, imo. But laughable, like a bad horror film that comes off as a comedy.

"Because every woman on earth should be a nurse."

That's not what was said, no was it implied. Bitner used nursing as an example and I explained how the training could be accomplished.

"Why don't you just admit that you believe all welfare is wrong, except for the corporate kind, and that anyone on food stamps or TANF is a lowlife who shouldn't have kids?"

Why should I admit to something that I don't believe in? Welfare is necessary in every society, but it should be temporary help for those who are working toward rejoining the work force, unless there is a medical reason that prevents them from working long term.

Riiiiiiiiiiight, inky, and what would you say about the woman who chooses to be childFREE (no kids by choice) and does very well financially in her job/career as a result of NOT having children? Women like Oprah Winfrey, to name a perfect example?
Oh that's right, such childfree women are called "selfish," primarily by far-right political and religious conservatives, the ones who think a woman's ONLY valid functions in life are marriage and motherhood.@@
I would say if you don't want children, don't get pregnant.

Another liberal not having a child is probably a good thing for the country.

For every sharpton on our side (and I'm no fan of his), you people have a limbaugh, a robertson, a coulter, etc. So you might want to notch down the self-righteous rhetoric.

Have to say I don't listen yo much any more..But what I do .

Never heard any one say they were afraid of those things,Peter ..
..except the guns ..
The other side blames guns for everything ..excusing the people wielding the guns ..
Those kids that killed the Australian. They are yelling about the gun they had..those kids and most if the other thugs out killing
Are ALREADY BREAKING EXISTING LAWS even possessing the weapons .

More laws on gun owners who register their weapons lawfully ..Will mean
Only the criminals have guns .idiot reporters published their addresses.

The criminals tdon't follow the laws ..the ones we already have .

Now I agree no one needs all these automatic weapons .

But most of the people using them..again ..are criminals to begin
With are criminal again ..Not following any law ..

In the case of those Kids..it was boredom??

They wanted to kill more people ?

Many murders in Chicago in just one weekend ..it's easy to blame the
Guns ..Not the criminals holding them. Who would never register them anyway .

However never heard I was going to be forced into abortion or same sex marriage ..Lol

That's s New one ..

We can start by requiring that anyone who is physically able to work either:
1) be employed
2) seeking employment
3) going to school to train for employment
4) accept any job that is offered (they can seek a more desired job while they are working)

Do you have proof that 2 and 4 aren't required for anyone on Food Stamps?

was nothing more that creating an argument just to have an argument. Numbers 2 & 4 are not required.

What part of free will don't you understand? If He prevented everything He doesn't like, where is the freedom to make choices? One of which is to know and love Him. Aren't you glad He doesn't force that on you?

One, he is NOT buying gourmet food everyday on just $200 a month, you Moron.
Two, because someone Joe Schmoe, who could very well be an ACTOR says so, is not proof.
Three, I find it very interesting that they mention that in NINETEEN NINETY-SIX, there were more regulations, but that Obama got rid of those in TWO THOUSAND AND NINE. What happened to the intervening years? If it were a legitimate claim, they'd have been able to say that in TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHT it was different.
Use some damned logic for a change, and stop believing everything you see from a source just because you agree with them in general politically.
Washington Post and others have reported on this guy too. Wake up.

You people just don't think things through.
The conversation was about what women who are currently on welfare could do to prevent their own children from following the same way of life.

I think I have it well throught out. It makes more sense to support a woman who is interested in bettering her life and those of her children. It would also send an incredible message to her children about working hard to obtain self reliance.

If you have a better solution, let's hear it.

Maybe availability to her children is her top priority. I have no problem with women treating their motherhood, as the most important job there is.
Why do you?
Motherhood is far and away the most important jobs a mom will ever have. The priority would be to have your own life on track before you have children either with a career or a husband to father your children. Something to sustain children and offer them a stable home.
