You don't get it. My family wouldn't take it if they could. Evidently they make more then I thought. They think that sort of thing is for the poor, and the pitiful. They could get free school lunch I know but they won't do that either. Sometimes you have to have a little pride in yourself.
Since your family qualify for free lunches they definitely qualify for the EIC "Poverty Payment" to lift you out of poverty and although they are employed, Food Stamps too.

Do you really think that the EIC "Poverty Payment" actually LIFTS people out of poverty??

That would be like saying that living on 'life support' is actual 'living'.

Neither one is all that great !

Tell ya what - when you're on life support, have the nurse call me, and I'll pull the plug, with you watching.

You can tell me as I shut you down how shitty life support is then.

Thank you.

The QUALITY of one's life is important. Being strung up to machines is NO WAY to live. Can't eat, can't drink, can't smoke. What kind of life is that?? <breathe in, breathe out - >

sounds like you would be a big fan of capital punishment....am I right? That's unusual, mostly libs don't like it...don t know why, it rids the earth of scum, and is an excellent deterent for future crimes.
