HONOLULU — Lillie Gonzales does whatever it takes to provide for three ravenous sons who live under her roof. She grows her own vegetables at home on Kauai, runs her own small business and like a record 42 million other Americans, she relies on food stamps.

 Quoting: Tali

Every state has different poverty levels for who can obtain food stamps and working people in my state can qualify based on need. However, out state just eliminated funds for persons with disablities that have residential assistance. Not sure how they are supposed to eat can't eat the assistance for housing, residential and of course good ol Medicaid. Maybe this is Mitch Daniels answer to the death panels

They should quite their jobs. McDonalds pays better than that.
But if at the Church they would give us some ale,
And a pleasant fire our souls to regale,
We'd sing and we'd pray all the live-long day,
And never once wish from the Church to stray.

People should be required to give up credit cards before getting food stamps...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Dont be quick to judge. Ive seen the The poor use those credit cards for emergency car repair too, Imagine if you were waiting with baited breath for every paycheck, You have nothing in savings. Therefore if something happened to your car, youre forced to use a credit card and that adds to your bills.

Imagine making 2,000 dollars a month or less, See how far that goes today.

next year most Americans will be on food stamps after their houses are forcibly taken weather owned or not and inflation goes through the roof, and sometime in the near future the implementation of the mark of the beast will revolve around government assistance

 Quoting: Tali

I got my hours cut at work and was eligible for food stamps for 3 years before I finally caved and applied for them.

I could make 400.00 a month more than I'm making now and still qualify for this award $43.50 a week which incidentally equals the combined FICA taxes amount (mine & employers share) and all the other fees and taxes I pay in the course of daily expenses.

So yeah, I am lucky to have this part time job, work is scarce here, I am glad I can get by this way and stop getting further in debt.

Edited to add: The main thing is it is giving me flexibility toward starting a business, that was really stagnating when I was totally broke and had no money to put into any ideas at all. I was self employed before and my goal is to be self employed again and create jobs while I'm at it. Been working on it every day now.

Re: Food Stamp Usage Soars Among Working Families
I've been shocked to find that 18 year olds living at home now get foodstamps whether or not the family needs it. That in addition to the server jobs young people can get do not provide enough to eat on so the government is supplementing this business model that does not provide adequate compensation, benefits or hours.

And the cost of living in Hawaii is...................

The HIGHEST in the fuckin' country.

Why is it that millions of poor people seem to want to live in the most beautiful, high cost of living areas in the country and then bitch about how much it costs to live there.
Calling an illegal alien an undocumented alien is like calling a drug dealer an unlicensed pharmacist.

Re: Food Stamp Usage Soars Among Working Families
I personally think it is getting worse.

Food pantries are running out of food - we're doing a food drive tomorrow at the park to try to re-stock one in our area.

In the summer months, we can at least grow our own food and freeze and can for the winter, however, they're some items we still have to purchase at the store.

What will everyone do when the government ADMITS it has no money and stops with all social services?

If these 40 million lazy freeloaders would stop sucking at the teat of Gubbermint socialism and get off there lazy butts and get a job, their wouldn't be any unemployment or recessions, and we could waste all the food stamp money where it belongs -- bailing out corporate welfare bonuses at the top of the voodoo economy where it could trickle down on us all.

Stamp food should be strictly limited to basic nutrition and off limits to junk food, crap and soda.

Another easy issue is fraud. There's a bodega down the street I stop at for a coffee once and a while and I've seen numerous transaction were nothing was purchased but change was given, IE: word on the street is .75 on the dollar.

Try living on a total of $718.00 per month from social security. Pay rent, electric, internet, car insurance, 1 tank of gas per month (2 miles to the closest grocery store, no bus service) Sure I could look for work, but who will hire a 74 year old when they can get a 25 year old for the same job? Yes I need my food stamps just to eat. Try using junk mail for toilet paper.
