When did it become ok to brag about PA , FS??????? I totally understand that sometimes it is necessary and much needed but I'm sorry to say that if u have enough money to have the damned internet and a device to use it on then u need to stop thinking that it is "cool" to get food stamps! IT IS NOT OK IT IS DISGUSTING TO BRAG ABOUT IT!!!!!!

You don't know anyone's circumstances.  You don't know that they have a "device" or internet access at home.  They may be at the library or at school.

That said, no, I don't think anyone should brag about being on assistance.  They should be working to get off of it.

They get free phones with text under government assistance. And our libraries have free internet. I am not on assistance, but do not judge. My husband has an I-phone 4, we can't afford it, thankfully his job gave him the phone and pays for it.

I agree, it does seem in another group ive noticed alot of bragging about fs and what they can buy w them.

I also know how hard it is to get out of a phone contract once you get one...we probably shouldnt have ours but it would be $350 per phone to cancel our contract which is even more outrageous than our bill :/

it is not right to brag about it at all and the fact they think it is a cool thing is disturbing but u dont kno anyone circumstances of why they need it but i really think if they r bragging about they most likely dont really have to be on them to get by even more so if they have a lot of nice things

 I agree--its not right to brag about it.  And, I think some people could look at their finances to set themself up better finanicially.  However, I do not know everyone's situation, and these programs are there for a reason.  I just hope the majority of the people to receive assistance need and appreciate it.

The only place I see anyone brag about it is on CM and most people I think are really doing it just to get a rise out of others...
