this goes back to the food stamp question. WHY DO SOME PEOPLE HAVE TO BLOW THINGS OUT OF PROPORTION?!

I want to know how me saying that I don't think you should use your food stamps to buy SODA turned me into a stuck up rich mom.

I said that I do not think there is ANYTHING WRONGwith being on assistance if you need help! MY OPINION WAS don't use the governments money to buy a luxury. Its soda. I was on wellcare when I was pregnant with my son but as soon as I could get off I DID. I never took advantage of that help. I was not being a b*tch. I'm far from rich.

AND just so those people know I DID NOT delete my answers. They must have gotten removed or something, which I don't understand why because they weren't mean.

Why do women have to blow EVERYTHING out of proportion???? If you don't want to hear the answers... DON'T POST A QUESTION.

Once again I do not look down on others who need assistance!! So quit being judgmental on me.

  • i agree, i dont want my tax dollars buying someone pop, you dont NEED pop... i think they need to limit food stamps just like wic, i have NO ISSUE whatso ever with paying taxes so that thepoor have EVERYTHING they may NEED to live/ but luxuries (like any processed and unhealthy food not to mention alcohol, cigs, non food items that arent diapers...) should be excluded.... people blow that outta proportion because they dont wanna lose their right to buy luxury items because it is a standard they have become used to... i live in ohio, which has cut in 09 the amount EVERYONE on PA gets everymonth!! why not just say that they cant buy that stuff too.. if you are already changing things. PA should help you stay alive not be cushy. i work my ass off and i dont have pop all the time and love coca cola but i have to be an adult and think about need over want...

  • wow. i'm sorry?
    uhhg.. i dont know what the question is actually.. is it why women are so judgemental? if so well its because we have to have an opinion about everything and everyone and sometimes we cant get along with everyone. so yeah we pick fights and say things we dont mean. but hey thats a woman for you! :)

  • I agree with you totally, i didnt read or even see your other post so I dont know what it was all about but people shouldn't take advantage of food stamps and welfare. I was on food stamps for 2 months when i lost my job and i never used them for my food just my kids food. i would go without before i used there food.

  • I also don't look down on people who need assistance because I know it is a great thing to have. I also used to be on food stamps.. but the other day I saw a lady at walmart with 3 kids. She had the nicest hair, nails, clothes, and heels. Usually I don't look at people and just judge them but she took forever with the WIC checks and then food stamps and was extremely rude to the cashier. I was stuck in line right behind her so all I could do was just wait. Two of her kids were playing with the groceries that the cashier already bagged and all I saw were chips, soda, and I know there must have been other food but it was ALOT of junk food. Now how can she afford all her nice things yet be on assistance?

  • there is nothing wrong with being on assistince i dont think you should judge others by what they buy. some people just dont eat healty and eat alot of junk. food stamps is so they can feed there family nobody cares what they feed there family.
