Yes, lets punish poor people for the mistakes of the nations wealthy (banks and wallstreet). How dare anyone ask them to help solve the problem they created. We should instead take food away from people who need it. Lets just ignore the fact that during the 2000s conservatives gave us two UNFUNDED wars, UNFUNDED tax cuts, and UNFUNDED 'prescription drug reform'. Gosh, Im glad you guys are so smart and can figure these complicated issues out for us dumb ole liberals.

Wonder how many billion we're gonna throw at Green Energy this term..

And now we got Al Gore blaming Hurricane Sandy on Global Warming,That's a crock of sh!t..

How many hurricanes you reakon good ol Mother Nature has produced since the formation of Earth..

Left wing Idiots...Scam,Scandal,Scoundra ls...

Now they are trying to hang another General to cover Obamas a$$..

Did Clinton resign over Lewinsky??/ NO!!!

The thing is now days if they get assistance from certain programs, the government also pays for a cell phone. I raised my kids by myself. I got 1 month of food stamps and then they cut them to $18.00 a month. But I workrd 2 jobs and done it all myself.

People we should be careful about judging someone for getting assistance because we might find ourselves in the same boat someday. Yes it appears the original poster has internet, but it may be paid for by the grandparents because they want their grandchildren have access to the web. I mean it is almost impossible now days for school children to not have access. Same thing with the cell phone, maybe the grandparents don't want their child/grandchildren out on the roads without a means to contact vise versa. Those name brand clothes may be an amazing find from Goodwill. That nice jewelry may have been gifts from yrs. past. We never know how hard that individual may be struggling inorder to change their situation and pay for themselves. Sure we've got the dead beats that will never change, but there are many that try hard every day to get ahead. In this day and time just about everybody I know could use a little help in one way or another, so folks let's be careful. No I don't get foodstamps, ding dang I'm almost jealous.

Your right, i do have a cell phone but i am not the one who gets foodstamps. I didn't start this thread either, PLEASE RE-READ ALL COMMENTS. I have no probably with someone who really needs the help, but so many abuse the system. Many that get foodstamps would not work in a pie factory. Many eat better than the working man. That is my point.

My point was I needed the help and couldn't get it. Because my ex- husband was court ordered to pay child support. The problem was he didn't halve the time. So I worked 2 jobs to make sure my kids had something to eat.

Weebles, now Pappaw and Mammaw surely wouldn't buy the grand kids a cell phone and internet then let them do without something to eat. Most people that are getting assistance are not struggling they have come to know it as a way of life, and I know some that are 3 generation check drawers and have never worked a day in their lives. Problem is if you have ever worked, the Government know that your capable of working and makes it very hard to get some help. On the other hand if you have never worked it seems to be easy to get on the draw. Or maybe that's just how it works for my family.

Im curious....Exactly how is someone is made a criminal by the goverment? A persons own actions make them a criminal. If a person commits a crime, is arrested and charged, stands trial, and is found guilty of said crime.....that makes the person a criminal. A person cant blame the goverment for the choices they freely make. Dont do the crime and there will be no reason to be called a criminal. There are always options to feed ones self.....family, friends, church, or if necessary picking up pop cans along side of the roadway if thats what it takes. Crime never pays it only makes the person a criminal.

Thank you True. Im wondering who will be to blame when all those people down south that raided the Walmarts while the EBT was down? The ones who filled baskets to the top knowing there wasnt enough on their card to cover what they got. They are now criminals....they swiped their card so the goverment knows who they are. The goverment didnt make the choice to use the card in that manner...the person did. I guess if the goverment does their job and pursues those people by cutting their card next month it will be Bushs fault. When a goverment is big enough to give you everything you need it is big enough to take everything you have. Imagine how many criminals the goverment would create if the entire entitlement system went down and all those who are 100% dependent on the system were left with nothing. It would be time to lock and load.

You can say that again. LOCK AND LOAD!!! These kinds of people think someone owes them something. We need big time changes in the goverment. RE-DO THE WHOLE SYSTEM! What eles will they dream up for the working man to pay for?

I'm with you...we should starve the poor and those that can't afford food. It's ridiculous people begging for food and things like that. If you don't work, you don't eat. Simple as that. Let's revoke all the food stamps, WIC, Social Security, Medicare and see how people find jobs. I'm 100% with you all. Kill em off. The poor, the single mothers with out of wedlock kids are all baggage. Kill em off.
You do not, sir, represent the Tea Party in any form or fashion. They are not for any of the items you listed above as a recourse to solve our nations current social problems. Only the Dems are in favor of abortion. Margaret Sanger who founded Planned Parenthood way back in the 1930's had the same idea as you. Why do you think they place their clinics in low income, mostly black areas??????? Because they want to wipe out all races but the white race. Educate yourself. No one has ever suggested killing off races or stopping feeding people in need, thats insane!!!! And as far as Social Security and Medicare goes they are not free programs. People who worked their whole lives, AND PAID INTO THE SYSTEM WHILE DOING SO, receive a check each month. And Medicare is not FREE!!! When a person reaches age 65 and goes on Medicare the Goverment takes $90.00 of their check before it ever reaches the bank to pay for Medicare premiums, and then you have to spend $50.00 a month for a Medicare gapper to pay for what Medicare doesnt. An example....A person receives $650 a month Social Security, minus medicare payments and gapper insurance leaves a person 65 years old a little over $500.00 a month to put a roof over their head and food in their mouth. And if the need medicine...thats not free either....they have to pay a co-pay for every prescription they have to buy. As I said before...educate yourself!

No, i am not for the above things you have named off. I am for the working man to be able to get help. Why should a working man go to work everyday and never get no help. Then take a total deadbeat that is in line for every handout there is. That shit is not right. It is time for this country to STOP handing out handouts to the LAZY! The people that really needs the help can not get it in most cases. Most of the lazy a$$ people that will not work are doing better than the working man does. That is sad.
