I KNOW SONE OF YALL GONNA HATE ME....

Posted by   + Show Post
Last night I was having a discussion with someone about food stamps and public assistance and she disagreed with me. Heres my point of view, should we be able to get food stamps and assistance YES! But the govt needs to put a cap on that shit.I have a family friend who has housing food stamps etc and has never worked a day in her life. I feel that it should be a temporary thing let's say 3 years the max. And if you are receiving assistance it should be required that you go to school and or have a job... that's my thought on it and NO I'm not bashing anyone that gets assistance but some people are abusing the system and making it hard for those who need help.

Well here if you need gov (money not foodstamps) there is a limit of 2 years for a family and you are required to spend 20 hours a week in job training or job searching for 3 months and them they find you a job. Its called welfare to work or something like that.

I do know a ton of people that take advantage of the system which really sucks because they take the foodstamps and sell them to get cash to spend on drugs. I think drug testing should be required.

And if they had a luxury car? And? Hard times right! If they get stamps and always had you're not getting a luxury car on bad credit! Lets just be honest! I was reading another post CM someone said such&such had ipad&iphones! Again majority of the rent so you mean to tell me they had $600 to blow in an ipad, instead electric bills,etc. Its all thid exaggerations to make people on welfare look bad! Just sounds stupid! And jealous! I remember this chick in Q&A said she was at the PA office and a woman had a full-length FUBU coat that cost more than her wardrobe! C'mon son! GTFOH! FUBU didn't cost that much when it was POPULAR!! And how did she know how much it cost? And she said she had 2 cell phones!

Quoting inmybizz:

I think they are exaggerating a tiny bit to get everyone all riled up.. FS user with a luxury car gets people all crazy LOL!! 

How can you play that much attention.. With getting my stuff on the conveyor belt thing, watching  my child,  skimming through the magazines,searching for my wallet/CC..I pay no mind to the person in front of me..

Quoting Hottmomma607:

IKR! I am at a grocery store with a full cart of groceries does it seem I have time to check what other people are buying? I also seen people describe all the items in their carts, then they drive away in a luxury SUV! o_O



Quoting inmybizz:

I've never noticed either. To be honest i don't know what a fs card looks like..I also give the person ahead of me personal space- i stand back a little bit until they complete their transaction...

Quoting luvthagirl:

That's another thing, I've never take notice on how the person in front of me is paying. I give them space (at least 4feet) and mind my own business cause I have tons of other things I could be worrying about beside the type of payment option a person is using & car they are driving





Quoting Captzsss:

While I agree that there should be some type of limitations on FS,  I also agree people need to mind their own business.  I never know who's paying with FS becasue I don't care.  I'm too worried about what's going on with me and mine to worry about who's paying with FS, what they have in their cart, what they're driving etc.  I rather have my taxes going to the FS program than some stupid space crap or any other stupid program that's usless.




Quoting luvthagirl:

But what does that have to do with you? and wouldn't you still be inside the store checking out while they drive away in their luxury SUV?




Quoting fabmom525:




I totally agree, I get tired of seeing people in the grocery store that pay with their food stamp card then go out to the parking lot and drive away in an Escalade!

I think I get what you are saying. I think all forms of Government need to be reformed, cut back, reduced, etc..etc..

I guess we are starting with the PBS programming.....

I think so too. So you mean to tell me after they paid for their groceries, she had time to pay for hers and run outside to see that they're in an Escalade. Smh...I could care less how someone is paying. I hate grocery shopping so I'm just trying to pay and get out!!!
