really? food stamps(vent)

If more people would worry more about themselves and less about each other. We might have a better place to live. This is like the 3rd or 4th post in two days about FS. People so concerned about what other people are getting on FS. Maybe it's not healthy, maybe it's too expensive. So what. If they run out before the next month they will be the ones starving. Not you and your family.

  • People have been on a food stamp kick today. You think people would still complain if the gov had premade boxes of groceries and you could pick up your weekly boxes with ingredients for healthy meals and recipe cards?

  • While I do feel some take advantage of the system there are those who don't in this economy why should anyone worry about why ur on or how much you spend??? I think that's insane..Who are them types of people to judge? I think if your doing wrong you're the one who suffers not them

  • I think the reason many people are upset by this is because they are struggling to make ends meet, trying to figure out how to feed their family, and probably cutting back on things, while their tax dollars are going to someone who appears to be taking advantage of the system, and they feel they have to pay for these people who are making bad choices, and they feel powerless to do anything about it. I understand their feeling.

  • And the people who are railing back are probably also struggling and not taking advantage of the system. I understand their feelings also.
