I was in Save A Lot in Richmond the other day and saw a guy in his late twenties to early thirties with a girl around the same age as him. They must of purchased around $1500 worth of food with food stamps. They had 4 shopping carts 100% full of food. His car was stacked to the roof in food!! Why would anyone need that much food and that much at once? The reason the economy is the way it is today is because of people like that. People that are hard working and work 40-60 hours a week are lucky to get a bologna sandwich to eat, but someone who doesn't work and sits at home with feet prompt up in the air can get $1000-$1500 a month in food stamps, eat steak everynight, get part or all utilties and housing paid, and much much more. There will always be millions of people like this, what's the point in working when you can sit at home and do nothing, have the tax payers, and government pay for $1000 a month in food, utilities, and your housing and much much more? They say to thereselves..hmmmm..should i work a $7 an hour job and bust my asss or sit at home and get all of this...??? That's why the economy is the way it is today.. Also, I think its crazy how someone can have a $500 iPhone,$200 tennis shoes,$400 coach purse, and much much more, and go to check out and save a lot and use a food stamp card and have no medical insurance or nothing...wtf is wrong with the world?? MAKES ME SICK!! EVERYBODY WHO MAKES $8-$10 DONT WORK!! JUST SIT ON YOUR ASSS AT HOME, YOU WILL BE BETTER OFF, COLLECT THAT $1000 A MONTH IN FOOD STAMPS, GET YOUR HOUSE AND UTILITES PAID FOR..WHY WORK??? GET YOUR OBAMAPHONE FOR FREE TOO!!! IM DONE WITH MY RANT!!

You are so right.. and it is disgusting. I have neighbors just like that, they are huge, their place is huge, their vehicles are huge, they are very dissrepectful, they have garbage everywhere. But the good news is, when the kids grow up.. guess what, they won't get anything in life free. Let them enjoy themself, and live in their lazy world, because they are hurting themself. All that food eventually that is "free" will cause them to have a heart attack. I am disgusted as well. Live free, free medical, free college, after having several kids. Just let the government feed them, but they will reap it eventually. I will be glad if their freebies stop.. maybe they will MOVE.They work for cash, by the way, to get all them freebies, that is how they get it. To get help, you have to have 0 income. So that is how they do it, then they say... God is Good.

Bullshit is what I call it. When my husband got laid of they wouldn't give us shit. We practically starved for months. I worked nights at a shit job to keep the house and feed the kids. When his cousin got laid off the same way he got welfare, stamps, and medical card. I told him in front of the case worker because we both went at the same time that he must have sucked her ass good because us with 2 kids didn't get squat. She was appalled but I didn't care. Its bullshit. Hes still on the crap too even after work picked back up 2 years ago. At least I can sleep at night knowing I earn what I get.

Really sad.. this is what it should be for, not for people who just live on it and take advantage of it. If only they would drive by these people's homes, and see the toy's they have lined up outside, it is ridiculous. But it will catch up.. and yes you can lay down your head and know, your living the truth, not a lie. Sad part is the kid's are watching their parents do this, they are asking for future problems. They won't feel the need to get a education if they see their parents living free. So after years of this being a family lifestyle, I guess these case workers already know, if they don't feed the kid's their parents wont. It is usually a "family tradition".

Another sad fact about it, if you have worked any at all in your life, you can't get any help. They see that as proof you are able to work. But if you've never worked a day in your life, you can have everything handed to you. I know entire families that do this. They raise their kids this way, and they in turn raise their kids that way. It's a never ending cycle. So all of us working people will always be working because we can't get help, even if we need it. Meanwhile, these sorry asses get to sit at home and watch tv all day and have everything handed to them. So if you want free food, free housing, and help paying your utilities, just don't ever get a job in the first place, and you will be set for life. And you can't blame Obama because it's always been this way. Welcome to America.

There is no way anyone spent $1500 in food stamps. You can't get 1500 in food assistance. Lmao. And why the hell were you all up in their pocket anyway? I mean how the hell would you know? Sounds sad to me. Maybe they had to do all of their shopping once a month due to no transportation. Maybe they have a house full of foster children to feed. The point is you have no damn idea what someone's story is so focus on your own story so you won't be such a bitter bitch. If you are really working a 7-10 dollar an hour job and you have a family than you most certainly can still qualify for food stamps. I'm calling bullsheet on the lady that says she couldn't get them with two kids and her man laid off too. Lady you must have didn't qualify for some reason you aren't stating. There are many families that work very hard and still struggle to make ends meet. Also there are people who have done well for themselves and happen to fall on hard times do to layoff, illness, cutbacks etc. That lady may have had a great job before her company started laying off. So yeah she may have an iPhone that she got while working or a brand name purse that she had. What on earth does that have to do with where that woman is now? You have no idea because its not your business. What you want her to sell her iPhone and feed her family for a week? Now she has no phone to look for a job and she's still broke and starving. Get a damn grip! Stop judging others because you have no right. If you're making 7-10 dollars an hour you ain't paying enough taxes to worry bout payin to feed anyone anyways. You have no tax liability azhole. Truth is many people work and receive help. And that's how it should be. Because honestly $7 hr isn't enough income to live on. There are people who abuse the system but there are systems in place to take care of that. It's none of your business. Stop worrying about what someone looks like, what they have, what they drive. Sounds like you're just jealous and bitter to me. Go to a thrift store and buy you a name brand purse for a couple bucks so someone can judge you. I guess you have to be dirty and naked to really be broke? No this isn't the way things work. You no good nosey azz bitches need to get a phucking life and focus on making yours better instead of venting about something that's irrelevant and has no effect on you other than your jealousy.

thank u for this post because there is a limit on how mic a family can get in food stamps n nobody can get 1500$ plus 4 buggies is not 1500$ in food I go to Walmart and a full buggy is about 180-200$ that's with pop and all! So at Save a lot it wouldn't be that much!!! People are so quick to judge my parents could never get govt assistance but they got custody of my cousins 6 kids and were given 600$ in food stamps and they spent them all at one time because with so many kids it's hard to find time to go 3 or 4 different times a month! People kill me talkin about others like they sh** on a golden toilet seat!

Yeah no, not hardly bitch. You didn't hit my nerve, I just think its a friggen joke when nosey ass Heffers like you spend all of your time worrying bout what the hell other people are doing and get on here ranting straight untruths. And yes bitch I have nice things as well. I own my home drive luxury vehicles and type this on my ipad as we speak. I don't receive food stamps because my husband makes good money, enough to support our big family, and I am blessed to be able to stay home with our children. My problem with you is that you're running around judging other people for no reason. At $45,552 a year you ain't rich bitch so get over yourself. And at your tax bracket you still ain't paying that $1500 in supposed food stamps. I sure hope you aren't feeding your kids save-a-lot bologna while you're tag dropping and flossing your iPhone. Lol. What a joke!!! You are the one who said something bout making $7-10 an hour. So why keep reiterating it if it doesn't pertain to you? Oh yeah, I forgot you're all about worrying about the next mans life.(While you need to get one of your own) don't get on here saying someone gets $1500 in food stamps when that's just not true. I wish your azz would be so close to me as I'm swiping my credit card that you know how much I'm paying and what I'm paying with. You'd have had something to talk about really then!!! You've got a problem to be that damn worried bout another person you don't even know. But back to the point at hand, people don't get that much in food assistance. And so what if they had several buggies you have no clue how many children they are feeding. Point is you don't know where someone is in their life.....and for a reason (NOT YOUR LIFE!). I don't have an issue feeding people. We are in the 28 percent tax bracket and I think the droplets in the bucket it takes to help support and assist the needy here at home is a far cry from the monies spent on endeavors that are unnecessary overseas but that's a whole other topic. Point is you're going to be paying the same taxes regardless if they get food assistance or not. You're still going to be paying that rate to fund civilization. We all have to pay taxes so stop whining. I think your whole story sounds fishy. You seem a little too jealous of people eating. Anyone who's not struggling themselves wouldn't be so jealous of that! Don't assume these people aren't working just because they're getting help. No one likes a nosey ass whining ass think they know it all azz bitch. Stop crying about what someone else has and start shopping somewhere other than save a lot which has mostly poorer customers due to lower prices. If you hate to see them get help so bad, go spend your 20 bucks an hour at Kroger.

FACT : People who shop at save a lot either are on food stamps and shop there because they're trying to stretch their benefits to feed their family for the longest time possible or they don't get food stamps but don't have enough money to shop at regular supermarkets. Nobody shops there because they just love to shop there. People shop there because they have to not because they want to. "Oh save a lot has the best produce ever let's shop there!" Said no person that makes $50grand a year EVER! Someone's telling fibs.....tisk tisk!

Hooked on phonics? I suggest that "I'm calling bull". You probably work at Dairy Queen. I'm sorry, the more I read your comments on here the more I wonder if that was really you in the line? LOL!! You're probably one of those wanna be thugs, pull up your jeans and wear a belt. I wish police could go around using whips, and smacking every person with baggy jeans!! lol...

Great attempt at diverting the fact that you're a looser lying about your income pretending to have more, simply to hate someone who has less. You're a real class act buddy. And I speak English very well thank you. I'm sorry I'm not a toothless bum like you and I actually come from a city outside of KY where people talk a little differently. That doesn't make me a wigger or have anything to do with my pants. You moron I plainly stated that I was a woman with a husband and a family. Why would I wear my pants sagging? That's the silliest diversion I've ever heard. Face the facts. You've been called out for your idiotic ways and absurd statement that was cram packed with lies and BULL! It's sad really! To be so pathetic you must spend so much of your time and energy worrying about others that you make up fairy tales to try and justify your fact-less position. Get a life! Oh and sorry hun but no Dairy Queen here, remember I don't work outside of the home. My husband is an attorney and I am a homemaker. My life is great thanks for trying to mind my business too. Just pitiful.

You'd be looking at a defamation suit. And if you're not on government assistance yet hate those that are, what a great opportunity to give them more of YOUR money. Some jack asses just can't be helped.
