[QUOTE who="I'm calling bull"]<quoted text>
Please state the real reason you couldn't get food-stamps? If you got laid off and were with out income with a family of four there is no way you were denied unless its for reasons you're not stating. Lets be honest about this. Even on unemployment you could still be eligible. Good lord I guess I'm going to have to get on google and post the eligibility guidelines so everyone can see the facts before they start telling stories. Those of you who weren't approved probably were too lazy to turn in documentation, make a meeting or comply with the program. Contrary to popular belief there is a process that determines who needs them and who doesn't. If you're too good to follow through with the qualifying preliminaries, then you are too good to receive the help. Get off your high horse with your I worked my whole life bull crap. Most of these people work that receive them and the second largest percentage is in between work. There are those that depend on them without putting forth the effort to become self sufficient but honestly, who wants to live a life where your only income is your $300 food stamps once a month. That idea can't last long. For those that make that their life, the smallest percentage, they are the ones who are living a sub standard lifestyle. Why don't you offer to show them a better way since you're so wonderful? Ha funny right. Sounds like another persons jealous of people eating. Who would have thought humans would want other humans to starve. Lol. And you people really need to stop with the steak!!!! My little sister was on food stamps for about six months after she broke her leg. She was a single mom and she got about $400 a month to feed her and 3 kids. They hardly through week 3 eating ramen noodles and hot dogs and at the end of the month we'd have to bring by groceries for them. I just thought this is no way to live. The assistance they get isn't even enough for the whole month and so if you're seeing steaks, so what!!! I bet they're eating crackers at the end of the month. Most people on food assistance have the worst diet because its cheaper to buy koolaid and hot dogs and chips than organic chicken and fresh veggies and milk. Gosh, be logical people. You fools are so consumed with hate. I think you just need to get laid!!!![/QUOTE]
I call bull. Many years ago, my husband and I couldn't get foodstamps when he lost his job because we had two cars. We didn't even try to get any assistance until every penny we had had ran out and we had sold personal items too. They told us to sell a car for food. He worked construction and often had to go out of state. If a job came up, he had to go right then. We had to have two cars. The problem was...we were honest when we went in to the welfare office, and we were punished for it. Had we lied, we would have gotten them, no problem. These people who mooch off the govt have their lies and manipulation down to an art form. They've got several cars and work for cash all the time but they lie about that when they go to the welfare office. It's a fact.

I'm sorry dear about what happened to you years ago but FYI that is not the way things work now. Transportation is not counted as a liquid asset any longer. That ended long ago. Someone wizened up and realized you have to have a vehicle to find work. I'm sorry that happened to you then but that is simply not the way things work now. So therefor, what this person said relative to the poster saying they got declined with no income was right! Also, lets touch on this theory about people using the system. If someone has children they will do whatever it takes to make sure they can eat and have a roof over their heads and clothes on their back. A measly food assistance allotment won't do that for anyone. Not everyone can wait in line five years to get housing assistance nor does everyone qualify for cash assistance (even if they do its not hardly enough to live on $200-$300 a month tops). Therefor if someone lies and says they live alone while their boyfriend lives there making $7/ hr (still barely enough to scrape by) to pay the rent and electric, so what! They are doing what they have to do to survive! You would too if you had no other way to survive. If you'd sit here and ball faced lie and say you wouldn't than you'd deserve to die in the cold because you gave a shit about what some assfuck though before your children's welfare. And don't even start with the you're not a good parent if you're on food stamps bullshit. Because plenty of good people whom are great parents fall on hard times and need help. By whatever means necessary. Point here is, the system isn't set up perfectly, you saw that when you got denied for having a car. Stop minding other people's business and you'll be just fine. If you don't like what someone else has to do to survive or the entities that are in place to help them, than step up and help them yourself or shut the fuck up. That's all folks!

The welfare/foodstamp programs were set up for people who fall on hard times and need TEMPORARY help. They were never intended as free monthly income for years and years for those who have every intention of milking them system to raise their children.

Solution, don't have children if you can't raise them without govt assistance. Don't marry losers and procreate.

The problem is that people are shameless now. They glory in their shame, proudly so. It used to be an embarrasment to have to use these programs. Now, people brag about it.

Many brazenly sell their foodstamps for cash every month. I know several hard-working people who buy FS cards every month so they can get their own food half price. So really, how hungry are these recipient's kids if they can sell their food stamps? They're either starving their children or they're scamming the govt/taxpayers.

I hope that each and everyone of you that speak bad about the needy at some point in the near future are in as much need or more then these people. And you get to see just how bad it can be when you start to loose everything you own. No everyone has a choice. Life likes to throw things at you that you never expect.

I wonder if they have a "food stamp" app where you can pay with your food stamps using a iphone? I see it coming in the future if it's not out already! I'm sure obama will come up with that soon, since he is giving out free handouts! Just remember he will be in office for a few more years then all you lazy fuks will have to get a job!!
You're an idiot. Foodstamps have been around for decades. And they will still be here when Obama leaves.

No one believes your husband is an attorney. I could maybe believe he's a public defender making 40k a year, maybe. But even that's a stretch. The attorneys I've met, would never be married to someone who wrote/spoke the way you do. Why are you on this topic since it clearly doesn't pertain to you? Shouldn't you be arranging play dates or charity functions?
Stop lying and trying to upset and tear down that poor poster. They obviously were upset to be labeled poor due to where they shop.

This is what's happening to our country:

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A....(substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. Could not be any simpler than that.(Please pass this on) These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. THE GOVERNMENT CANNOT GIVE TO ANYBODY ANYTHING THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT FIRST TAKE FROM SOMEBODY ELSE.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Goodbye USA. It was good to know you and you were great while you lasted.

Thanks losers.

Actually you should look that up dear before you go correcting. Either are appropriate. Also, why do you assume people who are on SNAP drive new cars? Most don't even have cars. I'd say you're a very unhappy person inside. Don't worry, Jesus loves you!

Some people are just too dense to get simple mathematics. THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TAXPAYERS TO SUSTAIN THE TAKERS ANYMORE.(btw, One who pays in a few hundred dollars a year and gets back several thousand come tax time does not a taxpayer make. But that's not the recipients fault. It's the govt's, who obviously are very poor financial planners.)

Read the analogy in my last post. That's exactly what's been happening for decades. We can't continue this way much longer. We've destroyed ourselves. The govt taking care of a huge number of the population will not work forever. The majority eventually figures out that it's easier to be takers than givers, especially when the govt paves the way for them to do so. Especially when we welcome millions of illegals in who steal jobs because they work cheap and don't mind living together, and the vast majority of them breed little anchor babies as quickly as possible (to deter deportation), all of these babies also being raised on the taxpayers' dime. Do you want to live like them?-30 to a house.

The bubble we've allowed the govt to create will burst soon. Why is it every economist in the world knows this but the American people seem to be in the dark?

Socialism doesn't work! Especially with a govt that's on a perpetual spending spree, running up a deficit well into the trillions of dollars. We've been told that they must keep borrowing or govt benefits will stop. Other nations own our debt, which we can't pay. We can‘t even make a dent in it. The people who are paying into Social Security can't cover the cost of those receiving Social Security. The bubble will burst.

The govt knows that if you're dependant upon them, you will also be obedient when the time comes. When there's no free money or free food, you'll happily line up for a box of cheese, some powdered milk and whatever is available, and you'll do as commanded. You've got kids to feed! The day will come when it's time to pay the piper. If you think you're leaders aren't aware of this, you're a fool.

If you can't see that we're living in pre-war Germany NOW, you need to open your eyes and look around. The govt is obviously starting to push for gun control. When the majorities' assistance programs have been cut and cut and people are really struggling, local govt agencies will offer 'gun buy-backs'(some already are). People will turn in their guns for cash or gift cards. Then we'll have an unarmed people under the control of a rogue govt. The people who still have guns will either defend what they have or take what you have, or both. Martial law will have to be implemented.

What a plan! You'd have to bee blind not to see what's happening to our nation. But everyone will be socially equal! Yay! Equally destitute, desperate and helpless. Think it could never happen? Brush up on your history then. History always repeats.

Keep your pants on instead of breeding like animals and bringing children into the world who you can't support. Use a little common sense and self-control, or at least birth control. How will you feed them if/when the economy collapses? Mom & Dad and Grandma & Grandpa are going to be just as broke as you.

I suppose everyone had better enjoy their freebies while they still can. Imo, it's too late anyway. No one is planning to change anything apparently and our current "way of life" is unsustainable.

Proud Liberal, if things were to continue for a few more years, which is possible but not probable, regarding giving them a FREE college education, if they obtain a college degree so as to obtain a decent paying job, then at the time of their employment, they're just as capable of paying off student loans as anyone else. They'd be making the same money as any other college educated person in the same field, hopefully. That's their ultimate goal anyway. They should have to pay for their education the same as anyone else. Everyone feeling so entitled is what's wrong now.

<quoted text> 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!
You are so right. Very few people get cash assistance any more and if they do there is a time limit. Most people who seem to have "extras" get there money from other places. You can't judge a system you know nothing about. My husband and I work very hard for the $200 of food stamps we get per month and like many others we could sometimes only go once a month to the store and had to get buggy fulls in order to feed our family because we had no ride. If you are single in many states you cannot get assistance, if you make too much money, which usually is over $1500 a month depending on the number of kids, you can still get stamps but not many. If you have more than four children you will still get some, like I said it depends on family number. Although our welfare system is broken it puts food in millions of bellies each day and if they did not get those few dollars each money would go hungry. Cash is almost an impossibility to get now and if you receiving it there are hoops you have to go through to get it. Many states have put in place work hours for people to comply with no exceptions, even food stamps you have to do this. So judge not those you have no idea about, he could been buying for his foster children or a group home, you just don't know. If people didn't have those food stamps its not like your going to give them a job or invited them to your house to eat. You never know the little girl next door to you could be hungry right now, and tomorrow you could lose you job and it will be you.

I myself would never go into a store and display a food stamp card. I mean really, why not make them wear a sign saying trash?

However, thanks to low morals, no self respect, poor education, and a need for cash to buy dope, the availability of food and pop at half price is interesting.

See these losers will take a list of what to buy and go get it. They then bring it directly to the buyer who takes the receipt and gives them one half the value.

See I will not buy food stamps as that is against the law. But if someone has a pile of food they want to sell, well that is a different story?

So let Obama give them all he wants too. They do not care. And why should we the working people. I mean you can even buy an Obama phone for 20 dollars with all the minutes.

Now tell me the democratic party is not cool. They, and their welfare minions help many of us save our hard earned money.
