I should not even respond to this...the stupidity of your comment speaks for itself!<quoted text>
Hey Sweetie--You're one of those parents, who are too stingy to buy their children a snack!! I don't call it taking care of children's bodies!! I call it---stingy parents!! I bet you hide the candy and pop, from the children, and eat it yourself!! Your children will probably be OBESE, because they will eat ten times more sweets, when they get away from you, because they never had any, when they were young!! Eating candy is one of the joys, of being a child!!!Haven't you heard the old saying, "As easy as taking candy, from a Baby!! That's You, taking their candy from them!! Cinderella's Step Mother!

My steaks were so good even tho food stamps payed for them. Did u know that even some of us works we still can get stamps cause we r low income hmmm. Did u know that
#23 Oct 8, 2012
I drink only bottled water and beer. Pop will rot your teeth and give u diabetes
#24 Oct 8, 2012
I would have to say that my child has also learned to eat healthy since she was a baby and yes she likes her candy but she likes her fruits vegetables and meat just as much. Balance is the key. She also has never eaten at macdonalds. She tried it and hates it. So if u don't give your kid pop and u don't have it in the house then they won't drink it
#25 Oct 8, 2012
I agree if u smoke or drink no food stamps. Test their blood monthly. The welfare system here in mass is just as bad. They r buying milk with stamps and a ten dollar pack of smokes with their other money. Not fair.
#26 Oct 8, 2012
yes we know your food stamps can buy those artery clogging tbone steaks. I wouldn't eat one if u bought it for me! Lmao. How about a nice salad with romaine and ice burg lettuce, rad dishes, cucumbers, carrots and onions. Topped off with croutons and bacon bits with Italian dressing. You may be able to buy tbones and yes they may taste good going down but how's the plaque in your heart?

Ain't nobody gonna live forever...if'n whut we
eat don't get aroun' to killin' us, some dope
head or alcoholic drunk behind the wheel is a
clear and present danger! The years pile up very
fast once we turn 21...thought I'd never see 21
and could walk in to a beer joint for good cold
draft...once I turned 21, I found I didn't care
so much about the beer and man, did those years
ever click off ever so fast! Now at 68 and on
fixed income, I draw just enough to not to be
eligible for the food stamp program...but by the
time I get the bills paid, there's not a lot left
to buy a few groceries with, so I gotta buy what
ever I can afford with I have to buy with. I have
type 2 diabetes and my blood sugar always hangs
around 140-160...I don't need the extra stess of
worrying about it since I can't do anything about
it anyway! So I intend to eat what I want, that
is if and when I can get it...I don't care who
gets food stamps nor whatever it is that they do
with them...at least they're spent here in the USA
and not buying guns and bombs in some foreign
country by the enemies of our country to kill our
sons and daughters we send over to fight our
battles for us!

good comment. U will make me rethink how I feel. I just worked 3 twelve hour night shifts , 35 babies born and 3 came from the middle east dropped a baby who is now a citizen and on mass health. It does annoy me
#29 Oct 9, 2012
The welfare and health thing about foreign parents dropping
their babies on American soil just so they can become citizens
of America is a problem we ask for. Look at the inscription on
the Statute of Liberty, a poem by Emma Lazarus, "Give me your
tired, your poor, Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free.
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the
homeless, tempest tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden
door." One must be careful for which he/she may ask, there
may come a time when the abundance is no longer there and that
which is asked for just keeps on coming! Welcome to the new

yes steaks are bad for you. but one every now and again isn't to bad. No one wants live on stamp i know i sure don't and i do work everyday and i take care of my babies. but i'm still really low income & thats why i get stamps i don't cheat anyone. i tell the truth about how i live. some people see us shopping with food stamps and thinks its a crime. but its not i work hard for my money and i provide for my children but i'm still a food stamp case and i'm not ashamed of it
#31 Oct 9, 2012
Ah yes, but see, you ARE the person the program is designed to help. I have no issues helping those who are struggling...I do have an issue helping those who simply don't want to work. If it were up to me and a person was able to work, then before they got those benefits they would have to work 40 hours a weeks just like the rest of us...if it meant picking up trash along the roadsides or working as helpers at school or whatever...I don't even care if it was to moe a pile of rocks from one side of the lot to the other and back again...at least they'd be doing something to earn their keep and maybe they'd learn to think twice before having baby after baby that they can't afford. America CANNOT go on this way much longer...the working class cannot support more and more people each year who choose to take the easy way out!
#32 Oct 9, 2012
then u shouldn't of been so crass about rubbing in our faces how u bought tbones with your food stamps. Some of us can't qualify for stamps but at the same time can't heat their houses with oil this year. So next time please be more thoughtful when u brag about your tbones cause my family are getting cold in our house and it's only October.
#33 Oct 9, 2012
couldn't agree more. And maybe those on the system should have to donate their time. Be mentors, coaches, start a soccer league in salyersville or help with babysitting children so their parents can work and not have to pay for child care
#34 Oct 10, 2012
What America can't afford anymore is the sending
of our dollars OUT of the country to foreigners
who spend our dollars to build or buy weapons to
wage war against our sons and daughters we have in
uniform and sent to various places around the
globe to preserve our freedoms and life styles we
enjoy as Americans. Every food stamp dollar that
is spent in this country stays in this country
and is a small droplet in helping our economy. We
are going to be taxed no matter what, even if the
food stamp program was to be phased out altogether
and return to the way it was before President
Johnson's War on Poverty of 1965...we were in
South East Asia then and fighting another type
of war, a senseless war where we really had no
business, but we paid taxes just the same and our
young sons and daughters were in harm's way to
the tune that nearly 59,000 of them lost their
lives and many more died later from the orange
stuff which was sprayed to kill the foilage of
the forest also killed them after they left the
place. So go ahead and diss the people who get
food stamps here, but remember, if retail grocery
store merchants didn't have the boost given by
food stamps, and by the loss of coal severance tax
that keeps tax off of food stuff, our cost of
putting food on the table would be more than a
'working person' could afford! We should not bite
at the hand that feeds us..the reality of it not
doing so any more is all too real!
#35 Oct 10, 2012
good point. I just can't grasp what is happening to our own ppl. And how did it get this way? I'm not saying anything bad about ppl who get the free stuff. But they get more than most of us. And they know how to get it for free. Take for instance the wic program. They r now giving car seats away for free. I see so many ppl giving birth on my tax dollars that I work hard for and that I would rather see going into starting a program for... Let's see, forming a soccer league in the town we live in so every boy and girl gets a chance to play soccer and not have to drive 30 miles each way ( wasteful gas money)If I needed food stamps you bet your ass I would have the marina placed. Not a birth control pill that I forget to take but something that lasts 5 years with little maintence. I am a maternity nurse and I am constantly looking at their demographics page in the chart and I see mass health ( Boston) for their free health insurance and homemaker. And then I work for them to ease their fears of taking a newborn home and then they ask for this and that ,while pop, candy and smokes are at the bedside table. With flowers and gifts. I don't know what the solution is but start with basics " stop having children that we can't afford" and these " homemakers that r on welfare" I say band together with the other homemakers and help in your community. If we r gonna give u stuff then u should also have to give back. It could be easily monitored at the place where u pick up one of those checks.

Some people that do work get foodstamps. Just like a lot of the people in the pantry food lines work but still need help to buy food for their kids. Do you even have a clue about how many kids go to bed Hungery, right here in the God old U.S of A. I'm sure a lot of them do feel shame standing there evek though they shouldn't. People like you are the reason they do though. Those people feel bad enough without you spouting out a bunch of ignorant NONSENSE! Educate yourself on the hunger epidemic in this country. Maybe you will be motivated to help one of those hungering children.
#37 Oct 19, 2012
I have no problem with people getting help such as foodstamps. A lot of people would go hungry if it wasn't for the program. I do have a huge problem when someone isn't using it for what it's intended for. I have gotten them myself before. And I am not proud that I had to ask for help.

I have read all these comments to see if anyone mentions the elderly and their need for food stamps. Most people over age 60 are on medications for many sicknesses that go along with growing older. The first of the month arrives and they go pay their rent or house payment then pay the utilities plus trash pickup and auto payments and insurance. Next comes the cable bill and gas for the car. then comes the big decision...to fill all their prescriptions for the month or to buy food. Sure they try to sign up for help to buy food and are told " sure, you qualify for $20 each month".
I think it would be wonderful to give every senior citizen $200 in food stamps every month plus a voucher for $100 off their medicines. Then our seniors can live the way they deserve to live. Imagine our blessed they would feel to not have the stress of worrying about whether to buy food or meds. Just a fraction of the money we give to foreign countries each year would make it possible to do this. Every time I think about our local senior citizens aving to do fundraisers just to have enough money to keep their senior center open for a while longer, it makes me sick.
#39 Nov 3, 2012
you are so correct. You sound like so many of the elderly. Asking wether they buy pills or keep the phone. It's wrong all around. But ppl need to take responsibility for their behavior. No smokes no beer no fast food. Buy fruits and vegetables and protein with food stamps. If its unhealthy then it should be paid for in cash. That would make ppl think twice when they went to the grocery.

Recently I was in Sav A Lot and noticed a guy, maybe early 20's, in the checkout line. He wasn't pushing a shopping cart, it was more like a low boy or a flat bed! Unsure of the correct term for the cart but I think it's for loading large boxes. Anyway, it was LOADED DOWN with 24 packs!! I'll guess there were at least 20 or more and paid with Foodstamps! I was appalled needless to say. This reminded me of another time when I worked as a cashier in a grocery store. A young girl came thru my line with her 3 young children. They were not dirty, just unkempt. Behind her was a checkout boy pulling a cart like the above described cart and it too was stacked high with 24 packs of assorted pop. Not one single food item was purchased, not even a flipping pack of gum for those babies!! I wanted to slap her facebut what could I do? I receive assistance but my husband goes to work everyday. It's just not enough sometimes. And it's sad when unhealthy food is cheaper than the healthier more nutritious food. We buy a very small amount of pop. Just enough to put in my husbands lunch box. Our drink if choice is diet Lipton Green Tea but it's $6.49 for a 12 pack. A 12 pack of Dew is $3 or $4!! I would love to prepare the salad someone described above but that would be outrageous to buy. I even use coupons lol but getting back to the point of this thread, the limitations shouldn't be the store's responsibility. They're out to make $$$. The limits should be on the card. And when people try to buy 20 cases of pop, their card should be flagged and some kind of repercussions such as the risk of losing benefits. Assistance is great when it's not being abused.
