The woman in front of me at EZ stop this morning got a carton of Ale8s with a food stamp card and then bought two packs of marlboro's with cash. Am I the only one who thinks people that do this shouldn't be getting food stamps to begin with?

Yeah, you nailed it. Im jealous of people who can't support themselves or their children and have to beg like dogs for scraps, and are still too stupid to not waste what money they do get. I sure wish I could have that.

Actually, I just wish their stupidity didn't cost me so much. But I'm guessing most of them think hand outs really do come from the government.

Obama and the Democrats won. He will tax the rich and redistribute their money to the needy.

Handouts come from taxes. Raise taxes on the rich! The poor and needy need more!

The fact that a single penny was stolen by the government from anyone, rich or not, to buy that woman's ale8s and smokes is a crime against any human with an ounce of pride. And if you think for a second you can tax the "rich" at even 100% and still give hand outs the way we are now....you're just stupid or too lazy to do 30 seconds of research on the matter. All this rich bashing is born of jealousy and nothing more. If you took all of the income of the rich (200,000 and up) for the whole year you'd have enough money to cover this current government's spending for a few days. Then what, smarty? Soon people will be forced to start thinking of real ideas instead of just yelling about the rich. Don't be shocked when some of those idea include things like turning over everyone's rights, money and property to the government. Like you said, there are needy who could use it more, and who better to decide who needs what than the government? That's your belief, right?

You are all over it! Absolutely right! The poor will always think they are a victim and deserve something. I remember having a sense of well being from accomplishing something. Now all my accomplishments (earnings) go to pay for ale-8s and cigarettes(Taxes)for someone who could not care less if they destroy this country, as long as they get their drugs and cigarettes. It makes me sick. Our country is 16 TRILLION dollars in debt. We spend 4 BILLION dollars a day that we don't have. This craziness will run its course. Get ready for economic collapse in the future. Maybe a month, maybe a year or so. This ponzi scheme system can not continue and our government knows it. They are kicking the can down the road, which will make the bubble burst even worse. Our country can not afford all our social programs, our interest payments and a strong military. Guess what gets cut first by this administration....Military. Do you feel safer? Next would be defaults on loans (China won't care now will they...) then economic collapse... Do you get it, I said collapse. Global collapse. Everything will need to be started over with a new system.(Mark of the Beast).

There were 1620 people in welfare county that voted November 6 to tax the rich and make America a socialist country.

Prepare for the crash.

I disagree with you on the "The poor will always think they are a victim and deserve something". I know plenty of people who WORK hard every day, but with the price of everything going up and having to raise a family these people struggle and live paycheck to paycheck pretty much. And they do NOT get any kind of assistance whatsoever. Not everyone who happens to get food stamps are druggies or smoke. My family at one time had to be on food stamps for awhile due to loss of job, it isn't something I am PROUD of but when it comes to feeding my children then I will do whatever it takes and for that I am not ashamed.

OK, I was not politically correct. I am refering to those people who buy drugs and cigarettes with their check from Uncle Sam. That does not mean you. I have seen people try to sell their food stamps for money, and get drug money out of it. They feel like they deserve more and are a victim. They also will steal you blind if you don't watch them.

For one you're are right. People who are willing to work hard and struggle to support their families can hardly get any help at all. It's yet another way incentive is being destroyed in this country. It is often more profitable to set on your ass and draw a check than it is to work. There is nothing at all wrong with getting some help with feeding your children if you've lost a job and really can't afford it. I bet you weren't buying cigarettes and ale8 during that period. The point of this thread was to say that if that woman or any person like her can afford high end smokes they shouldn't be using other people's money to buy their pop.(Actually I don't believe you should be able to buy junk food of any kind with food stamps..but I digress.)

Not sure why people feel the need to get on these type of topics and post about their personal situation as if they have to defend themselves. If you aren't misusing the system then we aren't talking about you. We're talking about a young able bodied woman who can afford to buy high end cigarettes but obviously thinks it's perfectly alright to waste other people's money on junk. If someone really needed a handout in order to have food,buying smokes and ale8's would never cross their minds. There really is no argument to the contrary

Thank you for that well thought out and substantive reply. Knowing there are great minds like this one around gives me hope for the county.

Sarcasm intended.
