The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides financial assistance for food purchasing to low- and no-income people and families living in the U.S.
Dear Rep. Del Bene, Let me be clear and direct. I want to see you fighting with everything you're worth in defense of Social Security, SSI, Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act, Food Stamps and all other programs that keep older citizens from sleeping in the streets; children fed, housed, and medically cared for; and, provide a safety net for those amongst that are less fortunate. That, by the way, would include standing strong on rules that limit shenanigans in the banking world. Sincerely, Judith Shattuck.

Gap between rich and poor hits record high. But Paul Ryan still wants to cut Food Stamps
The Constitution is clear. In addition to the power of the purse, the supreme law of the land gives Congress a number of enumerated powers and, in Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution, one of those powers is the power "to establish a uniform rule of naturalization..." Now... the occupant of the White House does have what is known as prosecutorial discretion. For example, Barack Obama could say that he is going to prioritize the prosecution and deportation of illegal aliens who have committed violent felonies. But that's not what Barack Obama is going to do. And he's not just going to simply refuse to enforce our immigration laws. He wants to start giving green cards and work permits and Social Security cards to MILLIONS of illegal aliens, and he ultimately wants to spend taxpayer dollars to fund programs to provide them with assistance in obtaining ObamaCare and Medicaid and Food Stamps and a ton of other goodies from Uncle Sugar. As Senator Jeff Sessions explained: "President Obama's ex ...
Dawn Ellen Wake Up America! Did you know that you are paying for 82% of Moslem families that enter the U.S. and immediately receive Entitlement Program money? Did you know that your tax dollars are going to house Moslems from jihadist countries? Did you know that the “Refugee Resettlement Program” brings whole Moslem communities from jihadist nations into the U.S.? Did you know that “Lutheran Family Services” receives large amounts of money from the Federal government to “guide” the “refugees” through the process of collecting Food Stamps, Welfare, Medicaid and Section 8 Housing? Did you know that The “Organization of Islamic Cooperation” (OIC) (made up of 56 countries) determines which “refugee” groups come to the U.S. and placed into cities like Emporia, Kansas; Nashville Tennessee, Cheyenne, Greeley & Fort Morgan, Colorado and Lewiston, Maine? See the video explaining the governments “Resettlement Programs” for Moslems…..

Republicans take control, and the Tea Party has already set their agenda: *The BET network will immediately be dismantled and done away with, it will be replaced with a 24hr NASCAR channel. *A new $20 bill will be entered into circulation, and the face on it will be George Zimmerman. *Food Stamps will be a flat rate for all, in the amount of $25 a month. *All black women will be fined for drawing their eyebrows on. *Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana will all be combined to make one state, named Geomisilousibama, and the governor will be Steve Harvey.

I have never ranted on FB before. But I need to say some things before the elcetion tomorrow. Let's look at some of the 'issues' being presented by various candidates: Education funding. We are now the State with the highest per student CUTS since 2008. The State has cut 24% from education in that period. Taxes. The State has cut the rate for the wealthiest while leaving everyone else covering the difference. Minimum Wage. This administration is against paying a living wage, forcing families of the working poor to rely on social programs like Food Stamps just to feed their children. At least Wal Mart doesn't have to pay any of that. Health Care. Rejected expansion of Medicare and oppose Affordable Care Act so we can treat people in emergency rooms instead of at a doctor's office. Marriage Equality. Marry whoever you want as long as it meets our standards. Freedom of Religion. Worship in any Protestant manner you want. Background Checks. Everyone needs a gun, the more the merrier. Prisons. Sinc ...
Yet the % spending on Food Stamps has dropped...Also? Most recipients are from RED States
Sure hope so because i dont know what to do right now. Sure dont want to go back to Food Stamps and Food Banks etc.

Why is it that if I sneak into a Movie theater, I will get Jail time, and if a Ailian sneaks into our country, they get Welfare, Food Stamps, and SSI?
Feds to Try Tying Work Requirements to Food Stamps - Governing -
On this Labor day weekend I want to give you a little food for thought. Fair pay, sick days, vacation pay, maternity leave, health insurance, retirement benefits, etc. were not given to workers by their employers, they were fought for mostly through the efforts if workers unions. We have elections in November and, if they could, the Republican would take all of this away as weel as Social Security, Disability Insurance, Food Stamps and Veteran Benefits to benefit the 2% of the very rich. They want this because people like the Koch brothers pay them to have this opinion. When you're in that voting booth, you better be thinking about THIS TRUTH any not the many lies they tell you to get your vote. Vote blue or we all get screwed!
The Farm Bill used to forced compromise between Food Stamps and subsidies. GOP broke apart the Farm Bill. Thnx!
Interesting food for thought! The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever --- to 47 million people, as of the most recent figures available in 2013. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." The stated reason for this policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
We should enable the Federal Poverty Level n your area 2 b the standard 2 receive help with Food Stamps n America. 2 help All.
Contrary To Popular Belief, The Welfare Queens Are White Women "When the United States Department of Agriculture released their latest report on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Programpoverty (SNAP) their numbers were astonishing. SNAP, better known as Food Stamps, benefited an average of 46.6 million per month. President Ronald Reagan wanted you to believe three things about food stamp recipients. According to him, people on food stamps were lazy, illiterate and worst of all……….Black. However, the average person on food stamps is not lazy, illiterate, or even Black. According to the data, 37.6% of food stamps were being allotted to White non-Hispanics. African Americans were allotted 23.6% of SNAP benefits." Ronald Reagan's LIES about Black people and welfare still affects the IMAGE of Black people today. A lazy slave is an oxymoron yet White people CONTINUE with the stereotype of Blacks being the lazy people in the USA. If you ever want to know what White people are ACTUALLY doing and how the ...
If Citizens did more research they'll be upset too. Did u know "refugees" immediately get Food Stamps, Cash Aid and assistant housing!

Obama's Minimum Wage raise to $ 10.10 should be accompanied by an 'equal' Reduction in all other present benefits as Food Stamps, Section 8 and others, Just as he did with Seniors recently on Social Security, living alone and on Food Stamps. When Social Security went up by a few dollars, Obama CUT our Seniors Food Stamps by a like ( or more) amount !!! Will he do the same with his cherished Pied Piper Followers ?

Our government's main job is to PROTECT its citizens and to SECURE our borders. We are one of the ONLY countries in the world where we REWARD illegals by providing them food, housing and education at the taxpayer's expense. Money we do NOT have because we are broke! We have veterans who fought for this country who do not have enough to eat. American children who go to bed hungry every night and military families who must apply for Food Stamps because they do not earn enough. Our own citizens cannot afford many of the luxuries provided by our government to illegal immigrants. Pro illegal immigration supporters believe immigrants need to be treated as humans. Well, so do I! They also maintain that migrating to survive is not a crime. It is when you do it illegally. There are laws in this country for a reason and they must be obeyed. If you want to become a citizen, the only thing I ask as an American citizen, who by the way, is a daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter of immigrants on both sides, . ...
By Bill Maher To the Republicans calling for military action in Iraq: How do we pay for it? Even options like “limited air strikes” cost billions of dollars, the kind of money that for years they’ve been claiming we just don’t have. They say we can’t afford health care, Pell Grants, school lunches, nutrition programs for infants, Food Stamps, Head Start, the post office, maintaining our infrastructure, and at least 15% of our federal workforce. But when it comes to paying for another country’s civil war, they’re like, “When can I sign the blank check?”
Here's an inside look at the 1% logic, that the Tea Party have so vehemently been upholding. Such logic is abusive and takes advantage of worker weaknesses, when as we can see clearly... Wal-Mart clearly thrived, and could afford the $1.15/hr Kennedy passed. It is also an inside look at Sam Walton, and how Wal-Mart came to be that its workers are living on Food Stamps in order to survive. The man said he'd FIRE any worker that cashed their new Minimum Wage check. Read the story in the thread.

Fan Q ~Can you post anon please? I need opinions. I have never been one to get on assistance, in fact most people in my family would judge me for even being on food stamps. But when I first found out I was pregnant I had just got laid off from a job that paid me really good and had great benefits, so when I was trying to get pregnant I was thinking I can afford it. Well since being laid of times have gotten super tough. I now have medicaid, food stamps and wic. All of that is great it keeps me and the little one in my belly fed and medically sound. But with still being unemployed because no one will hire a noticeably pregnant woman it's still hard to get some things like clothes and other things I need for a newborn baby. Just wondering if anyone thought it would be greedy if I applied for cash assistance on top of everything else I have? It obviously wouldn't be forever just until after the babies born and I can get a job. I just feel super greedy or like I'm "milking the system". Just because that's how ...
via Joanna Futerman: They come here and for the most part contribute nothing to the economy, they work for cash, a part of which is sent home. They may not speak English, but they know how to gain the system, receiving, health care, education, food stamps, W.I.C. etc... They take and use the investment that we have made in our country and put nothing back. They do not integrate, many live here for decades and never bother to learn the language. Most of them come her for the money and the bennies, they have no interest in becoming Americans, if they did they would at the very least learn the language, pay taxes and try to become contributing members of society.

Chapter 26 Value... It's time for 'The Massachusetts Challenge'. Why? Because one in every SEVEN Americans is on Food Stamps and it doesn't matter if you agree with The Left or The Right, there is tremendous common ground in the idea that something is going terribly wrong here in America. Massachusetts, we have all the advantages. We have rich natural resources, cutting-edge high tech, health care and financial industries and some of the best colleges in the world. If there is any state that has the ability to lead America to a better place... it's Massachusetts. But day after day after day the lead story on the evening news is The Great Debate over where to locate our new casino industry. It's time to change the subject... before it's too late! 13 years... that's all the time that it would take for Massachusetts to become the first state in America to finally bring our Food Stamp program to an end. 13 years from now, not a single Massachusetts citizen will NEED government help paying for food...

Until then, we need money for basic needs like food because I didn't make goal so with no emergency savings, cc are maxed or defaulted, short of bankruptsy, how do I sell this car for money? All serious offers will be considered.

Some of you know this already but for those of u who don't I was let go from Walmart yesterday. I had overridden a do not sell item (a T-shirt) and received a coaching. Then yesterday before I clocked on they pulled me into the office and explained that unfortunately according to policy (which they did show me) overriding a do not sell item is a termination. Not to worry though I applied for food stamps and unemployment and have a few options to me. Luv u all and will miss working there, but will be in from time to time to bug the *** out of everyone lol.

Just love how you're at the checkout person in front of you has a cart load of stuff pays a 200 in food stamps then pays 130 for alcohol and cigarettes in cash. Love my hardworking tax dollars going to work.
can you ask why a young man or women would join the service and put there life on the line because its not for the big bucks we no most end up on food stamps or is it for power I don't think so way back when I did it it was about the love I have for my country and to defend our freedom well we have so called leaders that have never thought about what is best for the greater good but what will fill there bank account we need to defend our veterans freedoms and make sure what they gave us is passed on to them its there right for what they give to all of us
I'm sure you mothers are happy you don't have to get up so early to get kids ready for school and cook breakfast but I AM NOT READY FOR THEM TO TAKE OVER MY FRIDGE THE WHOLE SUMMER.

So I was at a supermarket in Paterson getting lunch. Some couple pulls up in a new Honda Accord with probable at least $3000 rims and it was all "hooked up". The chick's got a huge LV bag and they checkout paying with food stamps. I wanted to say "your welcome". SMH
I am not one to hate on people hustling, but I would like to go to the store just one time without being hit on or being told to smile, or asked for change or donations or to buy food stamps or to visit a church or hair salon. Sometimes I just wanna go to the store and be silent. I'm not a naturally open or a nice person and I don't like being approached by strangers but I HAVE to pretend to be just to keep from being rude. I'm so tired of it! Sometimes I just wanna scream "I don't know you! Get away from me!"
I've got a certain gentleman that comes down to the store every weekend. He appears to be in his late 50's or early 60's. He drives himself down here, gets out of his car, and comes in the door on a walker. He's always in an excellent mood, very friendly and talkative. The kicker here is that he does all of this with only one leg. All that he ask is that I go get his bottle of wine for him, and I would imagine that's because he doesn't want to get that bulky walker in around all those glass bottles. He won't let me tote it to the car for him, nor will he let me open the door for him. I would imagine having only one leg would be major inconvenience, but not for him. With today's government, one could simply cut themselves shaving and get a lifetime supply of insurance, welfare checks, food stamps, and possibly even a handicap tag so that they can get the good parking spots. What's it gonna take for someone to stand up, not give 2 cents about political correctness, tell the left wing media to go fly a kite ...
For anyone who calls food stamps a "handout" has obviously never been to the family services office...ain't nothin' just being handed to anyone
I guess the good thing about only getting paid 160$ is it makes applying for food stamps easier. I just have to shuffle to downtown with my little pay stubs and be like "I fail at being an adult bc my job fails at paying me. Can I has noms?" Today is a sad day.
OK. I can't help it. As I've mentioned here before, I don't get political on FB. I try to respect everyone's opinion, even if I disagree, truly. But I've seen two things over the past 24 hours that sadly will make me block some old friends. One was a poster outraged about the U.S. response to "the several girls" kidnapped in Nigeria and how the U.S. should be doing more to help its kidnapped troops. Can't disagree with the latter, but the former? "Several girls?" The second was comparing food stamps to signs about not feeding animals at national parks because it will make the animals dependent on "handouts." I hope he/she never has loved ones who fall on hard times. These things make FB not fun for me, and only spur me to respond because I feel I have to as a thinking, human being.
Fck the people with no jobs who be living off welfare and food stamps. Thinking that life is just one big easy route. You gotta get up and strive for greatness set yourself up for the better. lifes about work and money. Sorry but it is. And that will always be my mindset and it will show in the future.
Yesterday someone used a term that has been kind of bothering me . Not that I am mad or upset but something didn't quite make sense , and after sleeping on it now I think I can comment on it ... In reference to welfare and people on it , they used the term Free-loaders . I tend to not like the word because of the tone of the word more than the actual word ...let's look at this and see Welfare by tax dollars , comes out to less then 12% yet governmental health care is 27% Government pensions is 25% hmmm ...then there is of course state tax dollars and assistance (their term) is only 1% , yet education is broken up in two parts k-12 = 25% and Higher education is 13% ...I have no problem with this stat in fact I like the idea of education ...but I do not have children will never have children so does that mean everybody who has kids and send them to school is a freeloader ? ...they are that by definition to me for my cause lol.I could lower my tax rate even more because Corporate welfare is over 12% and tha ...

The next person that tries to sell me food stamps at full price. ...I'm calling your caseworker! Lol
My new favorite argument in this Walmart game is coming from the people trying to roll the turd in glitter. The term gentrification has come up because someone learned a big word. He's not even using it correctly, shocker. We have been portrayed on a regular basis as latte-sipping yuppies; bored with our own beige toned lives; waiting to press assault on the next unsuspecting homeless and poor person. Laughable. For the record, most of us like our coffee black and I would bet most of us to go to the polls every year and make a choice to be an ally for poor people, every time. In realizing that there isn't a whole lot other than a script from Walmart for them to go on, this last attempt to make everyone who doesn't want this Box downtown look like were alienating people, shows how desperate and clueless they really are. We have known from the start that this can't be a political conversation, even though it somewhat is. But when you put yourself on a platform of accusing us of taking the poor people of Gre ...
I've just finished my report to the Labor board concerning my disability application. My good friend Jim Finnie suggested that I add a personal letter underlining the changes that I have gone through since my injury. This is what I've put together. Let me know what you think, before i send it off to the SSI people. I know it's a bit long winded, but when have you ever known me to be miniscule about anything I do. ;) To whom it may concern I was advised by a friend to detail my situation before and after my injury so that you would have a better understanding of both my injury and how it has impacted my life. I thought this very good advice as there was little room on the form provided to explain what my life was like before this work related injury and now that I have found myself disabled and unable to continue the life I once had. Let me start by giving you a little background about the struggles I’ve had to face before this injury. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Depression at the age of 15. I never acc ...
I hate this more than almost everything on the internet. These comments made by Bill Cosby are racist and ignorant (if a white man were to say this, we all know what the reaction would be - it isn't any less racist coming from a black man). Oh, "Dr." Cosby, I'm sure "they" could be more like you if "they" were handed college scholarships after failing the 10th grade and quitting school, just like you were. Unfortunately, "their" daddies aren't ranking military who can get them into the Navy like yours was. I'm sure they could be successful if they were handed everything, like you were. You skirted by on affirmative action, and now you don't believe that the younger generations should have such a privilege. You should really close your mouth when it comes to living a life that you couldn't even begin understand. It is EVERYONE'S responsibility to make sure that the children in this country are succeeding, regardless of, race; religion; nationality; or citizenship status. We are failing low income children ...
ROOT: How about Obama worries about how Mexico treats one innocent American vet who crossed the border…before we worry about amnesty for millions of Mexican citizens who illegally cross our border? Oh and while he's at it, ask Mexico to reimburse USA for billions in welfare & food stamps to take care of their citizens.
Man o man the surprises life brings. It seems so complicated so often that's it seems like a wall that can't be climbed. But then again if u take time and think about everything and how things are happening and what's going right and what's going wrong. Evaluate yourself and where u stand and the direction your headed for in life things start to come in clear. Maybe not all the answers. But knowing u are trying as hard as u can. And that you are giving life your all and an honest attempt. The answers are not always meant to be known. I've come a long way with myself since oct 11 2012. Was and still is the most horrible experience of my life but I do look back and wish I would have done and said a few things differently. I sure wish I wouldn't have let the situation drag me down like I did. But it made me into a better person. I know my limits now. I'm not scared to be alone. I refuse to be in a relationship because I don't want to be alone. The wrong reasons will put u right back to where u started every ...
Yep. We're just getting walked over, to protect profits for.who exactly? I'd rather our local people had the money to spend. Oh no...everything costs 70 cents more, and our workers get wages that keep them off of welfare and food stamps? The horror...
Girls vs. Women: Girls sell their food stamps. Women go grocery shopping with them. Girls find babysitters to go to the club. Women find babysitters so they can go to work. Girls sit at home waiting for child support. Women work or work on their degree while receiving child support. Girls feed their kids cheetos & candy. Women cook hot meals. girls date another drug dealer once he gets busted. Women learn & NEVER date another one. Girls wear pajamas in public. Women wear clothes. Girls raise daughters to be golddiggers. Women raise daughters to be independent. Girls dress their daughters like adults. Women dress their daughters like young Queens...
I had a pretty funny status posted, but I think I'm done. I've got some great friends, a beautiful family, a man who spoils me rotten, a booming career, & an exciting future WHICH INCLUDES college funds for my babies. I don't need BS from anyone especially someone who's 28 with no job, has had their kids taken away, can't keep a stable home, needs meds to function, doesn't spend their child support on the child, has had to be on food stamps more often than not, etc... Please tell me how your words should mean something, considering you lie about everything & can't go a year without saying a guy beats you lol. Go pray hunny child, you sure need it lol
Something to think about, folks. Before you condemn anyone that has applied for food stamps or social services, many of our service men and women have had to apply for them, just to get by. I, myself, I am not ashamed to say, at one point in my life, needed assistance from the government. I needed food stamps, because we were coming out of the Vietnam War, and I had been laid off. There were few jobs available, and I, at one point. worked three at the same time, just to survive. And still, I needed food stamps to help me get by. There is no shame in asking for help. There is no shame in accepting it. The shame lies in the blanket condemnation of those that need it. Remember: 'There, but for the grace of God, go I" Do not judge, lest thee be judged. I believe in helping those legitimately in need, not dismissing them as lazy.
Oh my goodness, it's been a while since I had a rant so here we go.having a child/children in no way makes you disabled. One can actually clean their house and work even though you have children. Mothers/Fathers all over the world work full time jobs to provide food, shelter, clothing, medical etc for their child/children each day. Oh and did I mention even SINGLE PARENTS do this scary thing called WORK? Oh, I can't work, I have no transportation or childcare you say? Funny, there seems to be transportation and childcare while out visiting friends, clubbing or quick runs to the store for smokes, blunt wraps and booze! Welfare is for the needy not the lazy! Food stamps is for the needy, a supplement when you run short/fall on hard times, not income for the LAZY! Selling foodstamps.SHAME! Selling WIC? SMH! Shame on you! To the single parents that get off their butts everyday to provide for their children, CONGRATULATIONS for choosing work over welfare lines!! You are teaching your children more than you wil ...
I got 1000 dollars worth of food stamps hmu if you tryna buy some frfr
Well i found out today that i was denied for food stamps, ( ove course i fell like its bacause im white! ), now just waiting to see about my unemployment, if that gets denied thin im F*d

Shake my head ijs thou Y'all b positive and have a bless night
So aint nobody got no food stamps for a young mac?!?! I hate paying full price for groceries smfh
I am having a patriotic night. I am feeling so angry that people are not fighting tooth and nail for what this country is founded on and listening to those who whine and cry when they do not get their way and give all of those who do not try, a trophy for participating and those who do not try to work welfare. It is the same thing! It sickens me to the point of puking. I recently heard of someone on food stamps complaining of getting only food that was GMO It is FREE to you *** it. Stop your *** complaining! Those people who are paying for your food stamps are eating ramen noodles. I can not stand the you owe me anything society.
I may have an apartment in Tara's building in Anoka. .Monica is moving up North and moving mid July we talked to the owners wife and caretaker. it looks promising. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get my financial situation with my housing and the county in order first. I still have to pay my full rent portion this month and a higher rate in July so I am praying the Salvation Army will help with Junes rent and I get my letter saying all the Social Security benefits have stopped .I know the letter is a bad thing but I need it to prove I have no income so I can get General Assistance and some food stamps for a few months while waiting for my Social Security to start up again orI have to go to work . .I will work all this out staying on a positive and dealing with each issue as it comes .M y doctor said I should take a few months for bereavement and think about what I want to do .I don't think she understood my situation at all I don't have months to do this I have 12 days to pay my rent.

Thanks arizona, for the SIXTEEN DOLLARS in food stamps a month and for accepting me adam and alice for insurance but not oliver... for no reason!
Just witnessed somebody using food stamps to buy cigarettes. How is that possible?
We, the U.S. taxpayers are, in effect, subsidizing big profit-making corporations like McDonald's and Walmart when we permit them to pay a Minimum Wage that keeps workers in poverty and forces them to need taxpayer funded food stamps and housing subsidies to barely subsist. Naysayers on the issue of raising the Minimum Wage overlook this self-evident fact.
One step forward and two steps back. These community service organizations are killing me. H&W stopped my food stamps because I wasn't looking for work (due to my injury, no one will hire me anyway) but I got the waver from Working Solutions to have them reinstated. I called H&W to get the food stamps reissued and they now tell me, my case has been closed, so I have to go back up to H&W with my broken back to reapply. This is why Idaho has one of the highest suicide rates in the whole Nation. These ridiculous hoops you have to jump through, are literally driving me insane. Off now to eat my last bit of spaghetti. I'm down to government rice and dehydrated potatoes until I get this worked out. Good thing I have a sense of humor (and no guns or ammo). =P
So what's the Problem? McDonald's Restaurants made $5.6 Billion dollars last year, paid its CEO Don Thompson $9.5 million last year, and has 440,000 employees in the U.S. with an average age of 29. The idea is that these are kids still in or just out of high school, is a misconception. So why can't they pay their workers a living wage, like $15 an hour? Why not, they're paying $21 an hour in Denmark? A miniumum of $16 an hour in Australia. Aren't you, the taxpayer, tired of subsidizing the McDonald's, other fast food restaurants and the Wal*Marts workers with Food Stamps while these capitalistic corporate monoliths pay little or no taxes? The workers deserve a living wage. Who knows, if the Republicans have their way we will all by applying for jobs as Wal*Mart greeters at age 80. The new Third World workers are us.
Young single black man head of house hold wit four kids I NEED food stamps.-
Always an interesting time at my nail salon. Doors locked after the crazy guy leaves. Now the Vietnamese owner is yelling about how much she pays a year in taxes, and next year she will be like lazy American and just collect food stamps.
ugh just stood behind a lady in the store talking on her note 3 phone with a basket full of grocerys paid with food stamps then bought her cigs and beer and charcoal and to top it all off got into a pretty new car to drive them home I wanted to look at her and say your welcome I hope you enjoy your bbq on my money
So this lady buys chips and coke with food stamps and buys blunt wraps with her $20 bill... Boy there is some pieces of crap around here lol
Well Friends I think we have finialy hit the wall. The wall of poverty, I knew it was coming but to actually feel it's cold uncaring presence against my back is killing me. I used to be a MAN and when my family needed more, I worked harder, if we didn't have enough money coming in I would take on another job. I can not tell you how emasculating it is to know you can not even feed your family. I have work some kind of a job since I was 8 years old, the youngest paperboy of the Sun Advocate, all the way until last Dec. when the crippling pain and injury the American Fork Police gave me on 4/18/2012. I even managed to make it a couple of years as a single father with full custody of my baby boy, and I never got one red cent from the Government, I was a MAN & A HUSBAND & A FATHER. Since Dec. I was forced to close my company, I lost my delivery truck to the lender as well as my delivery van, we have been living off of my amazing WIFE'S checks. She works *** hard to earn every cent too. But we had grown ...
Oh. You made a post complaining about McDonald workers asking for a livable wage. Congrats. Meanwhile your tax dollars are going to their food stamps so they can survive since their insanely profitable company refuses to pay them a wage they can survive on. But no. It's the workers we are mad at.
Can I PLEASE say something? Just a few years ago a surfer dude, literal surfer dude lost $4 million of other peoples money in an internet start-up. Failure, right? Well, he kept surfing and along the way tried coming up with this way to take "surfies" (which are selfies for surfers). He rigged a waterproof disposable camera to his wrist, a few tweaks later, he was out selling them to surf shops out of this van. Then through a few more tweaks he made one more compact that took video also. He was still selling them as a camera for photos until he made enough money to buy race car lessons. While out on the track he wanted to video tape his experience and these video guys were ready to rig super expensive equipment to this race car and he says, "I have one in my car I can clamp right on here and its super small. To their sheer amazement, the video quality was phenomenal and he had an epiphany! This was the true explosion point for GoPro cameras. He is now officially a billionaire. Did you know that 8 out of 1 ...
All these *** are getting enough money from the government and now they are asking $15 an hour for McDonald's? If you wanna make $15 an hour, quit spittin out kids, go to school and get you a job where your work might be worth more than Minimum Wage. What you don't understand If you get paid more,then the food is going to go up and it will equal out in the long run but most of y'all are on food stamps so it's only going to affect the ones making an honest living.
Ladies, here's a little clue. Some things really are 100% YOUR FAULT. if you're FAT then that's all YOUR fault. That has NOTHING to do with men. If you're living on Section 8 and food stamps that's NOT a man's fault. If you're loud and belligerent, that's not men's fault. That's YOUR fault. If men don't want to date you because you're a single mother, NO MAN is to blame for that. NOBODY likes a person who REFUSES to take responsibility for their actions. When people are talking about women and you ALWAYS respond with the SAME thing, "What about the men?" then you've FAILED TO GROW UP.
I'd support it. It would have to apply to food stamps as well though...
THIS is a B.S. meme from the Tea Party FB page. The truth is people that work at Minimum Wage, long term, are normally supplemented by us, the taxpayer (while the EMPLOYERS tell their workers to sign up for Government help). (And it is necessary. Certainly not against that) I can think of nothing more idiotic than this Minimum Wage train of thought. Anyone who thinks poverty helps the middle class is out of their mind. Raising wages for more spendable dollars is what helps both the poor and the middle class. Raising people out of poverty helps the nation as a whole for a more successful future most especially for children. Watching CEO recoup billions while their employees turn to welfare is a disgrace. Besides - HOW MANY college graduates are ALSO working at Minimum Wage, because there are NO JOBS available. A person should be able to work HARD for full-time and be close to a living wage, or at least, be above poverty level. And TOO MANY women either end up widowed, divorced or otherwise single, suppor . ...
My daughter who just turned 1 is going to undergo surgery in Seattle at children's to remove a tumor above her right eye June 3 we leave may 30. We just went two weeks ago to meet the surgeon and Iam in a complete panic ..I have not worked since March 28 due to her medical & get no assistance, times are tough. We are looking at a lot of medical expenses! Does anyone know where you go to get assistance w travel expenses? Public Assistance told me contact a church affiliation ! Iam so aggravated people who try & work their entire lives get nothing when they need it, others who are perfectly able to work get food stamps, welfare check! Iam so annoyed that I can't currently work but Iam planning to return immediately after surgery but can't get any help til that time , but others abuse the system !
So nice to know that our tax dollars are putting food stamps in their wallet and paying all medical bills for their kids, while they enjoy ALL the finer things in life. It's a sad world we live in when this is happening right in our backyards, while others that do deserve and really need the help can't get it!
Don't understand how courts expect fathers to provide for their child with what they take from us on a weekly basis. This state is soo *** backwards its ridiculous. Its cheaper to jus sign over my rights then to struggle paying child support health Insurence n providing clothes food and toys for my child. And all the while the mother who's on welfare food stamps and section 8 gets to go on vacation all the time... Wish I had the heart to be a dead beat done times
Really feeling diacouraged, so tired of working my fingers to the bones then going to the grocery store and tryin to feed my kids on $30-50 a week my work shoes are falling apart, my work pants are ripped and the people on undeserved welfare and unneeded disability have on brand new expensive shoes, driving New vehicles, buying cigarettes and beer then paying for $500 worth of food on food stamps. But my bills are all paid I am very proud of how far I've come
The democrats like to talk about Bush and the amount of wars and money he spent, but what they don't talk about is the amount of wars the Obama administration has got us in and the money that was stolen from us to pay for them. WAR ON HEALTHCARE: The Obama administration has spent trillions of our tax payer dollars to get universal healthcare up and running with absolutely NOTHING to show for it. Sure 7 million were signed up, but what about the millions more that lost their coverage because of costs? What about the 400 million dollars to a company in Canada to get a failed website up and running? Now we have this VA scandal where this administration has overseen the death of our American soldiers that are waiting for healthcare. This comes after Obama vowed to give more money and faster care to them while he was running for President. Sure the VA received more money than ever before, but it went right into the hands of his corrupt friends. The way our veterans are being treated at the VA is just a ...
I applied for food stamps at the VA hospital yesterday through my social worker I am waiting a reply😀
eligibility for Food Stamps (like in the State of Georgia/that's violation of sovereign U.S. citizens constitutional rights.
These little over-indulged boys & resentful, emancipated Wombmen are the death of Black Nationalism. I know that the knee-jerk response is, "well what about these deadbeat dads???", but Section 8 and Food Stamps was an incentive for them to get out from under the stewardship of the patriarchy!
don't pay attention.i don't care.i got my *** covered.. We are currently in a Depression. It has not hit us full force yet because we can print money to feed 48 million Americans on Food Stamps. I have previously said Depressions are caused by the accumulation of Unpayable Debts. Unpayable Debts are created because we allow bankers to charge us interest on money they create out of nothing. Depressions are periods of time when Unpayable Debts are cancelled en masse. I would prefer a systematic and worldwide Debt Cancellation over a 1930s style Great Depression which starved a minimum of 3 million Americans to death. Depressions are named. We have had the Great Contraction, the Long Depression and the Great Depression. I have decided to call this current Depression The Great Starvation instead of the Great Depression II. Professor Steve Keen has said we are headed to the greatest financial crisis in 500 years because we have more Unpayable Debts to cancel than any time in history. MIT did a review of the li ...
Does Reince Priebus understand that Republican candidates and office holders are driving voters away from the GOP? What kind of strategy is it to *** off all the major voter groups? Republican tactics so far: make voting harder by bringing back Jim Crow laws; economically hurt unemployed middle-class families; refuse to hike the Minimum Wage and keep the working poor on Food Stamps; give the rich more tax breaks that they do not want or need; continue the hard line on immigration to include family separations; plan to cut Social Security and Medicaid; repeal Obamacare and take healthcare insurance away from millions of Americans; cut military veterans benefits; maintain discrimination against women's equality and their choice on abortion; continue to bust police and teacher unions and dissolve retirement benefits for millions of state and municipal employees; subvert the U.S. Constitution by establishing Christianity as the official religion and repealing the fourteenth amendment to take away freedoms fo ...
100 million dollars in Food Stamps were spent at military bases this last year. Those lazy soldiers need to get an extra job to feed their families. That is why the Republicans want to cut, cut, cut, food stamps. They support our troops so long as they are fighting some foreign war for profit, but that their families should starve. Such Patriots. Ted Cruz says that anyone on food stamps is, and I quote, "like wild animals." Let's show them our support in the November elections.
This just came from a friend here in Las Vegas, please read and pray/consider what you will, I am including her email (emayfieldzso you can direct your responses to her. Maybe our Lord Jesus will move someone out there and can give her assistance/direction to send out her resume or other help as you are called and moved... May Providence bless you to bless Evelyn, in the name of our Lord Jesus. Ok - can't get the telephone company to back off just a week - need a partial payment for phone/tv/internet by Thursday, during the day...need prayers on this for $80 - would prefer $100 so I can get some cat food in here, too. Might have to go to a Payday Loan place but I really, really do NOT want to do that...they charge horrible interest. I can't think of anyone here who can lend it to me for just one week - still might figure someone out over the next day or so. Trying everything I can. Went to Food Stamps this morning and after 3 hours, was approved for, are you ready for this?, $15 a month. It all depends, I ...
How is it that one schlep abusing Food Stamps can be run up the right wingnut flagpole as a symbol of all people using Food Stamps, but the thousands of corpses each year in the US due to gun violence is not an indication that there is a serious gun problem?
As much as I LOVE MY CHICAGO BEARS (Lord knows I do), if the owners would have said the same comments as Donald Sterling did, I would DROP THEIR *** & BURN ALL OF MY BEARS STUFF!!! IT'S THE PRINCIPLE!!! Some people might call me LAME but WHO GIVES A F**K!!! I heard Chick-Fil-A has GOOD FOOD but I will never know because they DISCRMIINATE against *** & I have ALOT of friends that are *** I see that as a violation of their Civil Rights. I don't eat Oberweis ice cream or any of their diary products because Jim Oberweis is a Republican from Illinois (Who is running for the US Senate) thinks that ALL Black people are on Food Stamps & other government assistance. Back in the day, I used to wear Tommy Hilfiger until he said he DIDN'T want Black people wearing his clothes & I STOP wearing his clothes (Even though Black people helped him make MILLIONS & MILLIONS of dollars)... People have to STAND UP for something, if not, for the DIGNITY for your own people... I just want to know, what did Black people do to ...

Pennsylvania MUST have healthcare, governor outta be kicked out the back door and put on Food Stamps.
If politicians would correct these 'political incorrect' issues our nation would be stronger. Copied. 1) We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works. 2) Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't. And last but not least - 3) Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments to illegal aliens. This is what illegals receive monthly, $1500.00 per child, $500 for housing, Food Stamps, Free education including college. Am I the only one missing something. If not, repost this.
I plan to vote on June 3 for Chris McDaniel for US Senate. This is an important election, since Chris has bravely come forward to run against big government interests and the 40 year incumbent Thad Cochran. Thad has voted to expand our National Debt even as we speak it grows faster. Thad made votes to fund Obamacare and did not really fight to try to stop its roll out. Thad has voted for many helpful grants and relief funds for Mississippi and Food Stamps and Crop Subsidies, but he has become what I do not want in Washington which has reduced our future freedom and prosperity for our children. Now, I don't just vote against bad policies, I'm voting FOR a great leader, Chris McDaniel is a Christian that believes in freedom, to live and do business, as well as personal responsibility in our lives and raising our children. Chris believes in smaller federal government and more local and state rule of ourselves, because as we know that usually allows us to be more prosperous. Chris h ...
In my email today: Here's your receipt for the tax breaks and tax subsidies that you and other Americans gave to Walmart and the Walton family last year. Listed: Food Stamps and other Public Assistance. $6.2 Billion Federal Tax Breaks for Walmart . $1 Billion Special Tax Breaks for New Walmart Stores. $70 Million Special Low Tax Break on Walmart Dividends Claimed by the Waltons. $670 Million Annual Subtotal.$7.8 Billion Plus Onetime Estate Tax Savings.$3 Billion If you'd like a refund, tell Walmart's founder, Rob Walton, to pay America back. Walmart made $16 billion in 2013. The Walton family is worth nearly $150 billion -- more than the wealth of 49 million American families combined. THE IRONY IS THAT IF WALMART WORKERS WERE PAID HIGHER HOURLY WAGES, THEY'D PROBABLY SPEND IT AT WALMART! The Waltons would get it back anyway.

New Statistics I thought amazing in our beloved United States of America: 86 Million Working Taxpayers 146 Million Non-Working on Government Assistance . 50% of taxpayers pay Federal Income Taxes 47% of citizens pay ZERO Federal Income Taxes . Top 1% of earners pay 37% of Taxes Top 10% of earners pay 71% of Taxes (Source: 2009 National Taxpayers Union) *The above statistics CANNOT be sustained! It's only a mtter of time, and then what? I shudder to think. The people who whine about the "rich" actually get to VOTE for those dimwitted Democrats who can legally extract more taxes from the working folks by force of the IRS, and the NON-working folks, in my estimation, should NOT be allowed to vote to RAISE Taxes on anybody, since they are "takers," not "earning." .I do wonder how many ABLE-BODIED people we have in this country who choose to NOT work, and still receive WIC, Welfare, Section 8 Housing, Food Stamps, etc.and lastly, MOST (not all, but MOST) of those on Government Assistance are also the same ones ...
Buried within the big WashPo/Guardian Headlines is Pulitzer Prize winning journalism about Food Stamps.
The Ryan Budget passed the House BC of the GOP. They approve the following; Tax cuts to the millionaires, billionaires and corporations. Cuts to Medicare(screw the elderly - they want to give you a voucher program) Cuts to Medicaid(screw the poor) More cuts to Food Stamps(screw the hungry) Cuts to Federal student loans(screw the college kids) The Billionaires really are hijacking our country. These cuts are being made to social programs to pay for the proposed tax cuts to the super rich and corporations. That's the GOP house controlled Budget proposal .
Here's a question for the FB world. Let's say u have a family member who has lived with u for over 4 yrs. For approximately the last 6-7 months, they have made ZERO financial contributions to the general welfare of the household. ZERO money offered to help pay the $1,800 heating bill. The same heat that kept his daughter and his self warm. They continuously fall asleep with the tv on, even tho they have been asked for yrs not to do so. They rip off one of ur neighbors on a vehicle purchase (stiffed them on about $700). They only contributions made at all were $80/month in Food Stamps and an occasional babysitting. They were laid up on ur couch for almost a year with a broken knee & leg, due to their own wrecklessness in chasing married women around. Knocked up one of ur wife's best friends and ruined her marriage. How many of u would have said enough was enough years ago!? How many of u would still support this family member another 4 years!? A man of 29 yrs old shouldnt need "supported" by family. He sho ...
Nearly half of all people who use the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or Food Stamps) are kids.
I am a Republican and am proud to admit it. But we have a House Speaker Boehner who is Blocking Unemploment Benefits for those who have worked and paid into it. This has caused many people to b out on the street without a home and no money to pay bills and feed their Families. And at the same time millions of freeloading lazy Druggies are getting their Rent paid ,Money to Spend and Food Stamps which a good many of them are selling for $.50 on the Dollar. Isnt it nice that the Congress and Senate get paid when their not working and get full pay after serving one term. There is something VERY Wrong with this PIcture. I know I will be Voting in the Fall and I want to see tyhese good for nothing Political Puppets out on their *** Especially Boehner. Call your Congressmen and have them put Pressure on Boehner or Fire him. Please Share this .

Tomorrow marks the 10th Anniversary of the one person tht gave me life passing away.

With her little SSI check and Food Stamps, Food, clothes or anything we needed or wanted was never missing. She showed me what sacrifice for your love ones really meant. That even when you feel lonely n with lack of love you priority should always be your children and their future. She tought me how to be a real Christian, wht a Real Father, Husband and Son should be...

Where is on Food Stamps? Spend more tax dollars now; check facts later. It sounds like Nancy Pelosi on O…
Paul Ryan's budget for 2015 nearly doubles the defense budget as we are ending two wars. In addition, he significantly cuts taxes on people making more than a million dollars a year. How does he make up for these increases? By cutting Pell Grants, Food Stamps, Medicaid, Voucherizing Medicare, and Cutting Social Security benefits. Thank you Paul Ryan for quantifying exactly what a Republican Majority will give us, should they be successful in retaking the Senate and holding onto the House in 2014. Nice of you to give us a Heads Up!
David Perdue. I was so surprised to see you endorse Karen Handel's background and education.

My Name Is Jason, I’m A 35-Yr-Old White Male Combat Veteran…And I’m On Food Stamps By Jay Kirell My name is Jason. I turned 35 less than a week ago. My first job was maintenance work at a public pool when I was 17. I worked 40-hours a week while I was in college. I've never gone longer than six months without employment in my life and I just spent the last three years in the military, one of which consisted of a combat tour of Afghanistan. Oh, and I’m now on food stamps. Since June, as a matter of fact. Why am I on food stamps? The same reason everyone on food stamps is on food stamps: because I would very much enjoy not starving. I mean, if that’s okay with you: ...Mr. or Mrs. Republican congressman. ...Mr. or Mrs. Conservative commentator. ...Mr. or Mrs. “welfare queen” letter-to-the-editor author. ...Mr. or Mrs. “fiscal conservative, reason-based” libertarian. I do apologize for burde ...
March 17, 2014 Senator Cam Ward Chairperson Senate Judiciary Committee Alabama State House 11 S. Union St. Montgomery, AL 36130 Dear Senator Ward, In his State of the State address to legislators Governor Bentley said this, "Everyone in this room knows Alabama is one of the poorest states in America, where one in four children live in poverty. Nearly one million of our fellow Alabamians are dependent on Food Stamps." The Governor went on to call the statistics of poverty sobering. And indeed they are when you begin to look at the numbers county by county - the top five poorest counties are: Wilcox, 39.9%; Sumter, 39.1%; Dallas, 35.7%; Greene, 35.1%; and Perry, 33%. In fact, after looking at all the counties, we are the sixth poorest state in America. All of our state financed offices are suffering - the Governor is asking for a minuscule 2% pay raise and PEEHIP payment for our teachers, Judge Moore is seeking additional revenue for State courts, and the list goes on. Without reducing spending, what can we ...

Masculinist: the true alpha male Men are the builders of the state the creators of gods and are the driving force in every achievement known. They are the doers that have erected countless monuments, created and ended slavery brought Mars to the world and made the world the wondrous place that is. They are Alpha Males that have taken the reins of the past and have steered us to the future that we live in today. They have sculpted lesser men and shaped women, they have lived and died under the sun and moon and although we cannot remember all of them, their blood and potencies run though the veins of every man as a possibility of greatness. Men have done this…. But more specifically Masculinist have made this possible. Alexander, Hemmingway, Marco polo, Cortez, king Tut and the Old Testament GOD are all Masculinist, all alpha Males. Masculinist seize, they take their place and take the power of kings without reservation, without hesitation, and without guilt. We as Masculinist have power, personal and int ...
The person below is twerking for food stamps.
Varsheen and Stephen said they got bands I was like I got Food Stamps well their my moms', Im Super Salty!
tax return I just received an audit on my tax return for 2012 back from the IRS. It puzzles me!!! They are questioning how many dependents I claimed. I guess it was because of my response to the question: "List all dependents?" I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads; 42 million unemployed people on food stamps, 2 million people in over 243 prisons; Half of Mexico ; and 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate." 1 useless President. Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer. I KEEP ASKING MYSELF, WHO The *** DID I MISS?

Dodger Fans, lay off Corbin with the hateful comments...I realize you are bored since your food stamps are already gone for the month!
At one time I actually agreed with this whole-heartedly. However, since having had to resort to food stamps for survival ourselves, I've had to temper that a bit. At the very least, I'd have to say what drugs are being tested for is, or should be, a qualifying factor. For instance, I still smoke (And believe me, you don't want me trying to stop now - Unless you want to see me on the evening news being arrested for going on a murderous rampage!) and I still have a drink or two a night. And believe me, those two things, the internet, and my wife Megan, are all that stands between life as I know it now, and doing hard time for killing someone. I guess my point is, everyone needs their coping mechanisms, and those are mine. Unfortunately, in-spite of what my stomach or bowels think (No matter what I eat anymore, a flare-up of the Radiation Enteritis is all but guaranteed), I still need to eat as well. So, unless we're going to specify which drugs we're going to test for, we shouldn't do this. A person indulgi ...

Fantastic news has arrived from Brazil, as the striking Garis – who have been engaged in a monumental strike for the last week – will have their demands met. The city has signed a historic agreement that will grant the Garis a pay increase from 802 reals to 1100, and their food stamps will be increased from 12 reals to 20. No one will be fired, and they’ve also gained overtime pay, and will receive a health hazard allowance.

Why is cry-baby nobammie and moochie always on million dollar vacations while our military need food stamps to feed their families?
Well I don't always do the challenges & its not because I don't want to , its because I forget. Last week I was @ the grocery store standing in line behind a white man paying with food stamps. Well he didn't have all the money to pay for his groceries & was putting stuff back. I paid for his groceries not because I wanted something in return but because one day it could be me & have been. Thx to Tiffany Maria for doing this.
SHARE AND REPOST IF YOU WISH. I was asked a question if what we see happening in Politics is Pre Fascism... I say it's . Big Money pushing, Misinformation, Fear, Hate, Bigotry, Racism. To keep people occupied scared and outraged. Just look at who are in the running for possible Presidential Nominee's of the Republican Party. "The Three stooges." These are the idea people, the thinkers, business leaders of their party?. WOW.. The only ideology they are pushing, is lies, ignorance, hate, fear, misinformation of one type or another... keeping people stirred up confused, angry, about NSA spy abuse, which is actually "the Patriot Act" which the Republican Party pushed because the muslims were coming to bomb and rape the white woman after 9/11. But suddenly it's being called the NSA domestic abuse. Its Obama spying on Americans "How convenient" Look At the Anti *** n *** attacks, Anti Abortion ads, in every paper, TV and radio stations, paper in the country all at once... It took one *** of a lot of ...
I'm not paying for your food stamps with my hard-earned inheritance!
Don't poke me...send me some food stamps or left overs Lmao
If you think you're lonely now!! wait til they cut ur food stamps off!!
Who tryna sell some food stamps tho???
Just so everyone knows why we're here I'll tell you what sparked my idea in this: we just got a bunch of food stamps more than we need to get by and wanted to feed some people who would normally eat at the churches or hospitality house and I thought "I bet people all over here go through similar circumstances" and eating at the churches is very impersonal (although very very much appreciated so please never stop and thank you for help in the past) and I figured there has to be people every day with more food than they need or a dinner guest who canceled on you and I bet that there's a person who would love to eat what you offer... So please if you made dinner for six and two people canceled find two people here or anywhere and make there night it will make your in return :)
Any one selling food stamps let me know. I need bout 100.00!
This is unconscionable that our military families need food stamps, and still getting their salaries cut.
Jesus wouldn't have supported food stamps?
So..it's very irritating when you get a letter saying your getting food stamps finally back dated to feb at like 500$ a month..but they haven't sent me the card yet therefore i have to spend this money on food when Imma have 1000$ on the card...drives me insane and it's annoying..all i kno is i been waiting since i first found out i was Prego with chase and couldn't get it do u been waiting a year..Imma do a serious food shopping.spree when i get it and get like 3 carts full lol.i.need another fridge i think!!
Lisa Stuckey works a full-time job, but as a single mother with three other mouths to feed, she depends on food stamps to provide her family with enough to eat.
The one percent have their priorities and it's called trickle down, except the one percent makes sure there is no trickle down. If we down here on the bottom don't get our act together we will soon become much like the serfs of old, working all our lives beholden to the one percent with nothing left to show for it except a place in potter's field. They are taking away our children and our grandchildren's legacy bit by bit. We are drowning in a sea of meaningless triviality. The rich have almost gained total control over the political process. We have far too many one issue voters whom cabals like the Koch Brothers feed their red meat to and they in turn vote against their best interests. We keep letting them control the dialogue and they are slowly but surely eroding every right we are entitled to. We are the richest nation in the world and yet we have children going to bed hungry every night one in four that is a figure that should not be tolerated and yet it is! We have people like Paul Ryan feeding us ...
I'm in need of food stamps a.s.a.p.
Watching your March 13 show. The way people on Fox News were talking about people on food stamps made me so enraged. God I hope my country (Australia) doesn't end up like the US.

Jon Stewart has based much of his career on The Daily Show bashing Fox News’ ridiculousness. But let’s be honest, it’s really not that hard to do. Recently, Stewart has been in a back and forth with Fox News (Eric Bolling in particular) over Fox’s outlandish coverage pertaining to food stamps. In…
Tryna stress me again but finna go get this food stamps card for my aunt && get a bottle
Please keep my son, Jon in your prayers. He lives in Kansas City. Recently, he was mugged. The white man stole his wallet, his day planner, his ipad (which was a Christmas present) all his money and gift cards and his food stamps. The man pulled a knife on him and his service dog, Hector. Luckily neither was seriously hurt. Jon suffers from seizures that is why he has a service dog. Lord please watch over and protect him. Amen!
Wayne, we found a loophole in the Farm Bill that allows states to avoid devastating food stamps cuts—and John Boehner is freaking out.
Y'all member Mr.ward when he use to come to ms.reid class he be like "right right obama taking everybody food stamps" his *** use to have us rollin lmao
Welfare and food stamps is not the problem.
Yep, and nothing says God is LOVE better than cutting off food stamps and medical coverage for those in NEED instead of going after the slackers, collecting a paycheck, who have OBVIOUSLY been turning a blind eye to those who've made it a habit to ABUSE the programs they are working for.
Your fridge is full, food stamps. Your rent is paid, government assistance. You females claiming "independent" but dependent on those government endorsements. Make it on your own and I'll take my hat off to ya.
Love him or loathe him, he nailed this one right on the head. By Rush Limbaugh: I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.. If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable. Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits ...
I'm behind a lady in sweet bay and she asks if she can buy strawberry daiquiri mix on her food stamps .guess what YOU CAN...!Really ? That needs a total overhaul .
This is why I support food stamps to feed children and WHY I do not support corproate welfare.
Venting people who brag about living in one place their whole life or how many years they have been here. Then they whine about the cost of living, yet don't have a job. Live off SSI and, food stamps because they have kids. I mean HAD kids who moved out 10yrs ago.
we pay for wars, tax cuts abd loop holes, but we can't afford to pay for food stamps and unemploymenr insurance? -Billie Joe Armstrong
It's the fourth watch folks and I feel inspired by the holy spirit, Some things we need to do, Ban the sale of Tobacco, There should be no abortion after 12 weeks. You should only be able to get married once as long as your spouse or ex spouse is still alive. We should ban all firearms with fixed ammunition and have no back ground checks or carrying permits, black powder only! Marijuana should be legal to grow for personal use and not to sale. In Indiana, alcohol sales should be banned from 12:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., and sold on Sundays and cold beer everywhere. We need to eliminate food stamps, SSI and tanf. The churches and private charities should take care of the poor. The minimum a person on Disability and retirement should be $1300 a month. In Indiana we need to eliminate the sales tax and raise the income tax to 10%. The drinking age should be 18. We need medicare for everyone and Medicaid should be for nursing home expenses. We need to extend the WICK program for more women. We need to revamp the cr ...
Quote of the Day: Amos When the prophet Amos walked down the main drag, it was like a shoot-out in the Old West. Everybody ran for cover. His special target was the "beautiful people," and shooting from the hip, he never missed his mark. He pictures them sleek and tanned at Palm Beach, Acapulco, St. Tropez. They glisten with Bain de Soleil. The stereo is piped out over the marble terrace. Another tray of Bloody Marys is on the way. A vacationing bishop plunges into the heated pool. With one eye cocked on them, he has his other cocked on the unbeautiful people—the varicose veins of the old waiter, the pasty face of the starch-fed child, the Indian winos passed out on the railroad siding, the ragged woman fumbling for food stamps at the check-out counter. When justice is finally done, Amos says, there will be *** to pay. The happy hour will be postponed indefinitely, because the sun will never make it over the yardarm. The cashmere sweaters, the tangerine-colored slacks, the flowered Lillys will all fade ...
oh Mr.President..sir..we hear you loud and clear..here toss me another shovel..I'll help ya keep digging yourself in..geez...any humility? any? oh let's not forget our troops will be fighting and coming home to food stamps cause I dont give a crap..and they will do it and shut up!! now Genuflect to the king and queen.prideful, arrogant assh***
For those who have food stamps with only 1 child are your not married to your hubby how much do you get a month ?-amb
The GOP are against both, food stamps and a living wage. So where does that leave us. Mass genocide to please them?
Today's thought of the day. What percentage of the 'takers" do YOU think are Republicans?? 1. The southern Poor who are on food stamps etc who don't even know that's a government program and still vote for the GOP who want to cut that 2. The Welfare KINGS 3. Those who take benefits from the Farm subsidies (many in CONGRESS) to NOT grow food. (Talk about a TAKER-that's being paid NOT to do anything!) 4. Corporations who not only don't pay taxes, but get subsidies So add those up and I see a ton of GOP TAKERS ON IT!! Do YOU think they are PROJECTING their TAKING onto others?
I see from my Newsfeed/Real life some women are starting to be more humble now days. The end "Tax Season" must be drawing near.I even found some Food Stamps.
"A message to the Republican Party who just granted a $1 billion loan to Ukraine but blocked all Veteran's Bills: Veteran's Jobs Bill, Veteran's Benefits Bill, and Food Stamps Extension to the 5,000 Military families on Food Stamps." - Marian Fisher
From the MAKE A DIFFERENCE PARTY. Love and Harmony. Lend a helping hand, don't be so high and mighty that you see the less fortunate a problem or a burden. Everything we achieved in life can be taken away then where would you be. People look at welfare and food stamp handout for lazy people how don't wanna do anything to help themselves. They really don't know who all the beneficiaries of these programs. Here just a few. Military Families, Employed Single Parent Families Hard Working Families, Senior Citizens, People With Disabilities. The Welfare and Food Stamps programs been around for years, before a lot of us was born. The Welfare and Food Stamp program was not something that President Obama started. He had nothing to do with starting those programs. I know this will not change the mind of some people about these to programs. I'M JUST SAYING!

Republicans are setting sights to hurt all sources of income for the middle and lower class. * Unemployment extension - denied * Social Security - trying to completely defund * Food Stamps being cut - trying to completely defund * Medicare / Medicaid / ACA - trying to completely defund * Collective Bargaining - trying to void state by state * Minimum Wage - being obstructed Debt is a commodity, big corporations trade is credit debt swaps. There are record monopolies occurring, besides that they are crossing industries like never before. Lobbyists help them remove blocks to predatory lending. They are too big to fail, the stock market crash was not an accident. It just opened the door to profit off of small companies and individuals going into default. Thus the reason for the double bounce back on the stocks and no recovery for the general population. The credit reporting agencies will allow them to profit for many years to come also. It is the gift that keeps on giving. I have no experience in the finance ...
The Ohio State University Food Fellows is now complete! How did you do? REFLECTION of the day: After living on a limited budget this week, how has your perspective changed about decisions families facing hunger must make? Have you considered decisions between food and rent? Food and gas? Food and medicine/health care? Food and utilities? November budget cuts decreased SNAP by about $36/month or under $1.40 per meal. How would your meals look if you had even less to spend on food? Or were caught off guard by a job loss and not "prepared" to live on a limited budget? Be sure to join us THIS THURSDAY, March 6, from 6-7:30 for a conversation with Mid-Ohio Foodbank about SNAP/Food Stamps in 115 Stillman Hall! Share your ideas about what you have learned and what we can do based on our experiences. Good things happen when diverse groups of people come together and work towards finding solutions to complex problems! Thanks also to Ohio Association of Foodbanks for their social media support and for participation ...

Great internship opportunity at the Food Bank!! CalFresh (formerly called Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program that helps individuals and families purchase additional healthy food by awarding benefits on a card that can be used at stores where groceries are sold. Of the thousands of San Diegans who qualify for this assistance, about 40% don’t take advantage. In fact, San Diego County holds the lowest participation rate of any urban county in the United States. Of the current participants, 84% are families with children, 3% contain one or more elderly and disabled members and 40% are working families. The Food Bank’s CalFresh Outreach Program staff has organized various hub sites throughout San Diego County to make it easier and more comfortable for people to apply for the CalFresh Program. Community Partners host the CalFresh Outreach Team and become a hub site for the community and its residents. People can visit a hub-site to receive prescreening and one-on-one application assistance inst ...
Kornacki keep digging more news from our Fat *** Chris Christie and Scott Walker And Associates!

So the report comes out to say the largest beneficial group of "Food Stamps". Not the Black woman with an abundance of fatherless siblings. Not the Illegal Alien we want to deport. Not the Senior Citizen who worked their *** off to build this great country. Not the Indian we stole this land from. Instead its the United States Military. That's right. The men and woman who actually put on a uniform to defend the honour of Democracy, can't even buy a decent meal without help.Long live the 1% whose right to keep us down they fought to defend.
Received a communication from my excellent patriot friend, Jeri LeRoi. Among other things, she referenced a resolution by the Republican National Committee opposing an Article 5 Convention. My response follows: As you (I hope) know, I am far from being a shill for the party. I find myself in opposition on a regular basis regarding many issues . This time, however, I think they have it right. The potential rewards are no where near worth the risks involved. In a nation that twice elected Obama, with almost half not paying income tax, with so many on Food Stamps and Obamaphones, etc., we are unwise to call this convention at this time. We are in the minority. Until we can remedy that, we are best served to keep our powder dry.
I liked a video from Rep Jim McGovern Thanks PDA for Standing Up for SNAP (Food Stamps)
The (Tea Party) Republican-controlled House of Representatives worked slightly more than 1/3 (actually 34.5%) of the year and earned $174,000 a year. Yet, somehow, they justify cutting Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, aka Food Stamps) by $39 Billion and Extended Unemployment Assistance for MILLIONS of people because they say these benefits make people LAZY. Am I understanding this correctly? The people making $174,000 for jobs that, at best, could be classified as part-time or seasonal, with outlandish benefits, say WHO'S lazy? WE NEED TO FIRE THEM ALL! In November 2014, let's clean House!
Why are we paying for the gov to advertise Food Stamps in MEXICO?
Cheeky Lady says: And now, via the Farm Bill, many who needed to go on food stamps, those who rely on extra assistance, will be 90 dollars a month short & those with children are being punished to stop, what is it the legislators said? FRAUD.. Punish children and families for those who may be doing fraud! Why not punish JP Morgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, for his complicity in fraud? Don't understand the correlation. Do some research. Energy assistance and Food Stamps are handled by JP Morgan... My what a tangled web "We" weave when first "We" practice to deceive..America's shame is her legislators, DC law makers, have no shame!
