Why do you have a problem with people receiving GOV assistants but not corporations?

I especially don't like how huge corporations lobby to get their products and retail outlets eligible for EBT. Big Business loves it some food stamps. [/quote] When possible I work with bottom tier charities for truly destitute people in Detroit like areas. We grow gardens, acquire surplus from farmers markets. Bulk protein and canned goods from food services companies and schools. The elderly still accepts and uses these things. Nearly every person from 5 to 50 does not take the stuff, or if they do, they resell it. Do you know why? Destitute, unemployed people no longer have the knowledge or "time" to prepare their own food. They need to be able to put a EBT hotpocket in the microwave for their 8 month old. As you mentioned: walmart, kraft, heinz, P&G, JP Morgan, etc. don't complain one bit about food stamps :damned: [/quote] Every time potpocket comes up, I always think of Jim Gaffigan's stand up on hotpockets. :chuckle: [/quote]
A lot of you people here on GLP seem to think people on welfare(the vets, the disabled, the old, people who make under 20k) are the problem. But there is no outrage or anger for the companies who make billions yet find ways to stick their hands in the pot. When you come one here and make threads about people who receive "handouts" when most of them actually need all the help they can get but fail to mention companies who exploit gov assistants you look like a bunch of selective problem solving hypocrite. How can you sit behind your screen and bash these people yet turn the other way at the real problem. Its like the cop who would rather chase down someone peeing in an ally instead of the guy mugging down the street.
We need to do better.
