  • You can have an income and still be eligible for FS. What you do with your income is your business. I don't have cable. I don't own a car but I have Internet. That's my luxury in life.

  • You mean to tell me that you physically go over to your neighbors house and get on-line?----- You don't need to go over there to use someones wireless service.

  • I do believe what people spend is their own business. It does bother me when I know people who recieve assistance but still abuse the system. We receive help, and I work my ass off for it. My husband watches the kids and works his ass off going to school. I don't buy frivolities for myself, we don't buy junk food. we're not the couple that buys fs food and then pays cash for booze. I do enjoy the internet, sure, but I have it in my house SOLELY to pay my bills. I have some that can't be paid any other way. We are on the computer only after the kids are in bed, and only for about an hour or so. my internet is a bit pricey...$45....but even if I cut out that expense....it would not pay for even a quarter of the food money I need to feed my family.... I hope this answers your question.
