Obama might be the reason that you are 'stoned' all the time, but the reason that your remarks are so cold is probably because of the way you were raised. My guess is that you would rather watch wrestling on TV than do something productive. Hopefully you still have time to grow out of the rut you made for yourself.

That's why I worry about me and you worry about you! I'm definitely NOT the only one who feels this way! I'm entitled to my opinion so the "proper authority " can kiss my a**! And I'm very wise thank you!

Old Timer, you are allowed to give these kids a warning, but you can't beat some sense into their head. He will be wishing he had listened to you when he's crying to the feds.

How much money do you think food stamp recipients get. Dont think its enough to get rich. You folks dont mind giving millions to a farmer who grows the food. I dont think I have ever seen a food stamp recipient on the Forbes 500 list , but have seen corporate government subsidized farms

Opinions are only a way to relieve the pressure built inside. And I don't think you would want me to voice my opinion of you!

It is concerning that such negative stigmas have been tied to government assistance. Yes, some people who receive rent assistance and EBT cards abuse the privileges but not everyone. The economic situation has caused great heartache and hard times throughout this area. In my personal opinion, there should be stricter regulations on those receiving assistance and those receiving the benefits should have some expectations (Yes, exceptions should be made for the elderly and disabled). It is sad to see and hear about those who abuse such systems that were set in place to help, but it is also unpleasant for people in a community to verbally bash one another. No matter how tempting, it is not our place to judge one another based on appearance. Yes, people may appear flashy (clothing, cars..) but they could also live in a horrible environment (Keep in mind, not ALL people are abusing these privileges, just some). Who are we to judge? The economic and government problems are not going to fix themselves over night, so let’s do the best with what situation we are in. If you are the political type, contact your local representative and voice your opinion. If you have children or are a caretaker, teach them the value of good work. Let’s work to create a brighter future, instead of shaking our heads at the current situation.
As you were reading I know you probably wanted to know…I am a college student. I support myself and live alone. I receive no government assistance, other than the Tennessee Hope Scholarship (which was awarded on an academic basis). I work full time and commute daily. My parents taught me to work hard to create a future for myself, and I am listening. Do I financially struggle? Yes, but most do. The struggle makes you stronger. Struggle, overcome and be proud.

we are to judge the abusers and get them off the system.
this hurts the ones for whom this was intended.
if these abuses are not brought to the attention of the public, then the silence is an accepted silent approval.

, I know what you mean. I know of a few people who get food stamps and sell them for drugs. And it's sad because I know some that should get stamps because they're older and disabled and can't. I'll try and find the article and link it on here, but it says it's only to be for the homeless, elderly and the disabled, not for everyone receiving food stamps. But,like I said before, I see a lot of people driving around with disabled tags and they seem fine, ya know what I mean? How will they be able to tell whether someone is disabled or not? Anyone can say they have a disability.
Here's the link to the article, for those who would like to read it:
i disagree with u on children getting disability for child with mental challenge or special !because my child is and dont receive nothing from the state not nothing not even insurance ! it is out of our pocket or payments!! and my husband works everyday dont make a whole lot just to get by and i have three more children!! here what i think y cant everybody that works get state funds!!! thanks for my dad and mom and grandparents for teaching me how to garden! we pay taxes on this! its going to get worst so brace ur self for the worst!god bless us all!!!

First, there are regular Food Stamps which can only be used for food/soft drink purchases. The cash part comes into play for those people who get the cash benefit too. So not everyone who has an EBT card can get cash back. Most can't.
Obama has screwed things up so badly many people who normally wouldn't want to use Food Stamps are having to. The unemployment rate is 13.8% in Lauderdale County, 11.9% in Haywood County, Gibson 13.0%, Dyer 11.8% and even Tipton County is 11.5%.
When people can't work they do what they have to do to feed their children & families. Obama appears totally unconcerned about the economy these days. He's more worried about giving amnesty to illegals and letting more in. Yeah, that'll help.
While I totally capitulate with your claim about Obama's lack of interest in the economy, I think it goes well beyond that assessment to be honest. I honestly don't think he understands what a good economy is let alone knows how to run one. This typical liberal notion that you can spend your way out of a recession is idiocy borderline cumbersome. Here we are in his second term and he has the audacity to push the same policies that have been an overt failure since 2008? This tax and spend agenda of his continues to beset the economy while drowing America in even more debt. That said, it's absolutel unfathomable how this dilettante has managed to double the amount of food stamp receipients and he still has over three years left. Unreal!

hope, that was a good post.
I know there are folks who are disabled that at first glance, would not seem to be. those with some heart or lung conditions could fit in this category. also those with some auto-immune diseases or cancers could fit here. I have spinal cord damage, have had a stroke, to start naming several conditions that qualify me. But on the days I feel better, I do not use the "spots" Me and my tricycle walker just bebop the best I can.

What gets me is this:::there are many who drive the cars of their disabled family members and they are not. They are the ones shopping and the family member is not present. They are just using the car for the advantage.
Or, frankly, those who use the restroom for those with the wheelchair access and do not have walkers or wheelchairs or small children...they just want the space. THAT is awful and they usually get an earful from me. If it is an employee, I go to the manager and make a formal complaint.
There are always those who will abuse any system of consideration for those who need some assistance for whatever reason. They are just selfish horrible people who waste air. I pray that they never are in such a condition that would require them to really NEED what they are abusing.

Do you know how I can report him? Obviously the site does not have a moderator.
It is one's duty today to report terrorists and assasins to law authorities.
Has already been reported to FBI

Did not trust this topix site to report it.

No American president should be threatened whether democrat or republican.

No elected official should be threatened .

To threaten a President is a potential felony.

And... Yes, left in 56....it is our duty to report..

Was reported to FBI about 2 wks ago.

I don't know how to report this terrorist from this site. I do do such things when I see it. does anyone know how to report the terorist, a potential Preaidential assassinator. It is my American duty.
Can't believe that this post was not "reported" on this site,.
For those who call themselves patriots, how can that be?
Can't believe topix did not remove it.
Obviously, this site only reports those who hold different political beliefs than the majority if posters.

And, yes, where is the moderator?
Is it the wild, Wild West?
