For those who oppose food stamps...

What do you think about parents buying candy for haloween and giving it to your children? Is it ok for them to use their stamps when it benfits your kids?

  • My only problem with food stamps has to do with those that really can support themselves but are too lazy to do so.

  • I don't think it's wise to buy candy on food stamps. Can you afford to have cavities filled? I'm not in any way against food stamps/PA. I believe that no one should go hungry. But if you are buying things you don't need and then at the end of the month can't buy the things you do need then I think it's a matter of priorities... And as for giving it away, not a wise decision IMO.

  • Anon :46 Just because someone lives in a nice home doesn't mean that they aren't on foodstamps. Welfare complexes are not the only people that have food stamps

  • Buying candy on food stamps is not okay no matter who it is for. I'm not opposed to those who need FS getting them. That is what they are for. It's the ones who abuse the system who are the problem. Like people who think it's fine to buy candy and junkfood. And before anyone starts going on about how that can be a bright spot in the lives of recipients and the rest of us need to get over it, I don't have to get over it. FS are not for junk, they are for FOOD. So yes, it pisses off those of us who watch our paychecks disappear because we pay our bills and buy our own food and yours along with your junkfood. So if the way we feel makes you all angry, try getting over that.

    You must be so proud to not take care of your own children. BTW, it's not FREE. Someone else paid for it.

    and I'm sure that you haven't spent more than what you've ever paid in, you know since only a portion of taxes actually go to those types of assistance.
