when the deer population has a meager feeding season thye don't produce as many fawns. Maybe if the dirtbags cut back on their eating their reproduction rate will drop . Many of the third and fourth generation female welfare babies have developed extra teats for feeding their large litters.

Let the leech monkeys eliminate one another then those of us who actually work and pay taxes for a living will no longer have to support their lazy procreating asses.

Why should the rest of us work and pay for our own food just so those chimps can splurge on ice cream and steak and shrimp on the taxes of their hard working countrymen.

Are companies like wal mart who underpay their workers and even actually encourage them to apply for food stamps. This amounts to a government subsidy for the largest seller of chinese crap, which led to the jobs being outsourced in the firstplace. Raise the minimum wage to a living wage. That will stimulate the economy, get peopleoff food stamps, and create new jobs as people actually will haave disposable income to buy stuff. It will also make the price of american made goods competitive again.

Plenty of working people get food stamps. I mean working two part time min wage jobs with no health care, even if you went to college. The Erie way!

Walmart, McDonalds, Burger King etc. etc. are meant to be jobs that you work at until you finish your post high school education. After you finish your education you can get a better paying entry level career job. The whole idea is first you educate yourself after high school. Then you get an entry level job. Then you work hard and get promoted. Then you find a mate that you fall in love with. Then you get married. You then after you are financially stable, plan a family and have children. The minimum wage was never meant to be a family sustaining wage. Raising the minimum wage won't stimulate the economy, it will just increase inflation. See how many jobs are lost when McDonald's has to charge $10 for a cheeseburger and Walmart has to charge $20 for a t-shirt. Walmart doesn't underpay their workers. They pay a fair wage for unskilled work. How much should someone who stocks shelves make. If they want more money they should go back to school for a degree or a trade and move on.

People came from Europe in the beginning of the 20th Century to start a new life. People traveled by wagon train in the 19th Century to the great west to start a new life. If you can't make it in Erie, move!!!!!!!!!!

If you are working two part time minimum wage jobs with no health care, go back to school or move. It's not the systems fault. Look in the mirror.

The average food stamp cut will be $36. Suck it up and purchase different types of food, go to food pantries, ask the baby daddy to pay or go eat at mom's house.

what you are describing is pre NAFTA America. Alll of the displaced workers are now working at places like wal mart, if they are lucky enought to hae a job. And if you think unskilledlabor should be low wage, why don't you try taking your own garbage to the landfill, or swinging a sledgehammer in a foundryfor a week?
With skyrocketing tuition costs, only he rich can afford to send their kids to the best colleges. Most other college grads caan't find work. The game is being stacked eer higher in faor of the rich - almost as high as tthat stack of bullshit you typed.
