Fine.

Use food as a weapon and starve yourselves to death in your battle against any poor that have managed to find enough to eat.

I'm tired of trying to tell you that the working class should be allowed to eat well.

Lord.
 Quoting: The Light Under the Door


The "poor" don't just manage to find enough food, they are the most obese group in America.

No you're not, you're just trying to justify bums living on the backs of the working class. It seems to me that you are completely ok with 300 pound welfare recipients buying steaks while those who are working are living off noodles.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
the issue in California is people, sorry to say, mostly Hispanics claiming food stamps, cash aide free health care, child care and disability, the WORKS and THEN...

Working, mostly, under-the-table and often times dealings with illegal activities such as drug-dealing and money-laundering.

People are much more willing to hire a Mexican under-the-table than a white person because they will never say a word.

It's truly sick to know they are already making thousands for their family of 12 off the tax-funded government teat..then just to rub it in harder they are all working tax free whilst reaping the benefits from honest, hard-working citizens..

This is how they afford their fancy cars and luxury items, I'm sure of it.

I've know honest people on food stamps and they can barely survive. Any people who have opulence are cheating...it's bullshit.

And yes this is generational, they teach each other how to fuck over America hard.


Did you know someone can come here(in California at least) illegally from another country and claim they are a victim of domestic violence with no proof and become permanent residents, eligible for all sorts of aide, housing and counselling?

My brother slapped my in the face as a child, free food and housing please. OOPS sorry you're not an illegal immigrant, go back to work.

Look, since you're all poor at this point anyway, why don;t we just put all of you on a scale and the skinniest get fed first?

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I work in at a store, and I am ill at what I see.
I am a divorced man trying to be responsible, but can't even afford a christmas present for my child, and eat ramen noddles. Honestly have not had a real home cooked meal in months.


What I see:

One woman that is a regular has 5, yes 5, food cards in different names. All have over $200 balances. (another steak please)

Another man works for UPS, brags how is making 22/hr but uses a food card with over $1000 dollar balance.

90% of all the food cards are used for candy and soda.

Those that use food cards will then take out cash, buy $100 worth of lottery tickets and cigarettes.

I love those that pull up in their Lexus, dressed in designer clothes, beautiful make-up and hair, then pull out the EBT to buy a $5 bottle of tea.

Those that have EBT cash will get money back and then go across the street to the liquor store.

Every day I go to work, I want to take these people and throw them in the dumpster where they belong, Called worthless trash.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14930530




First of all, worry about your own life!
Second of all, you don't know the extenuating circumstances nor is it any of your business. Maybe the person with 5 cards is shopping for other people?
Third of all and most of all, mind your business. It's not healthy getting wrapped up in the lives of strangers.

Besides, let the government give a little back to the people by way of Food Stamps. Some deserve/need it. Some abuse it. After all, their role models are the criminal cabal in dark suits up in Washington anyway. And we all know how they take advantage of the system and no one is doing anything about that.

I personally don't understand the soda pop, candy and sugar-coated cereal purchases but, it's their life. They are hardwired to be this way so you have to believe, this is their journey. It may not bode well with us but at the end of the day, it's their life. They are not hurting us.

It seems to be that the OP is earning $22.00 an hour, but he cannot feed himself and stay a good provider for his family for one reason and one reason alone: INFLATION.

Inflation is caused by the know-nothings running the U.S. economy into the ground, and this is why the news reports we are back to 1969 income levels.

Inflation is caused by the WELFARE STATE.

Inflation is caused by high taxes.

Inflation is caused by cripping American businesses.

Inflation means you spend too much for housing and too much for gasoline and automobile maintenance to get to and from your workplace.

Sorry, but the responses to your comments are totally correct, and you need to be open-minded, rather than drink more of the liberal Kool-Aid.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
The bottom of the pyramid used to be the strongest part because the people knew that they had to stand together in order to survive. When things were rough they had to share and be there for each other, and yes this included food.
Now they bicker among each other over who gets what handout, which ones are allowed a handout, and who gets taxed more by the rich. They no longer stand together.

Yes, the pyramid will lower, but I'm afraid that this time it will be at the expense of the entire lower class. You are no longer strong when fighting each other. Hunger and glutony will wipe you out.

Here's the thing about that argument or position.
It's coming out of our pocket anyway. We have no say as to where our taxes go.
We're funding black projects. We're funding the CIA drug cartel. We're funding crooked cops etc.

We are slaves to the system. They take our money regardless.
If you don't like where it's going then, leave.

I just don't understand the mindset of that argument.

Where the fuck do our taxes for the telephone go (for instance)? We pay about 15-dollars for taxes just to have a phone.
So again, we're not in control of where our fiat make-believe monies are distributed.

If every EBT user stops buying junk food, does that REALLY change anything in our lives?

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
You really think that's where his tax dollars are going?
How's your military industrial complex?
What about those banks?

No, you cannot fight those. They are bigger than you. So instead the little man fights the little man and never gets anywhere.
 Quoting: The Light Under the Door




That's my position and the whole point.

They take our money (taxes) and at that point, we're rendered powerless as to the disturbution.

So I wish people would stop using that argument of 'the way they abuse the system is my business because I pay taxes' because it's irrelevent.

If someone doesn't like it then they should leave this country.

I hate this country (government) so much that the welfare program, to me, feels like that's the least they can do for them.
I don't give a crap that there are generations of welfare families out there. I mean, I feel sorry for them but they don't effect my pocket anymore if they weren't in the picture. My money STILL gets taxed.

You sir are incredibly dense if you can not differentiate anger towards a honest man's struggle with anger towards the perpetrators of fraud and theft.

OP does not rage against the poor. He rages against the thieves that exploit the systems built to help the poor.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I work in at a store, and I am ill at what I see.
I am a divorced man trying to be responsible, but can't even afford a christmas present for my child, and eat ramen noddles. Honestly have not had a real home cooked meal in months.


What I see:

One woman that is a regular has 5, yes 5, food cards in different names. All have over $200 balances. (another steak please)

Another man works for UPS, brags how is making 22/hr but uses a food card with over $1000 dollar balance.

90% of all the food cards are used for candy and soda.

Those that use food cards will then take out cash, buy $100 worth of lottery tickets and cigarettes.

I love those that pull up in their Lexus, dressed in designer clothes, beautiful make-up and hair, then pull out the EBT to buy a $5 bottle of tea.

Those that have EBT cash will get money back and then go across the street to the liquor store.

Every day I go to work, I want to take these people and throw them in the dumpster where they belong, Called worthless trash.

First of all, worry about your own life!
Second of all, you don't know the extenuating circumstances nor is it any of your business. Maybe the person with 5 cards is shopping for other people?
Third of all and most of all, mind your business. It's not healthy getting wrapped up in the lives of strangers.

Besides, let the government give a little back to the people by way of Food Stamps. Some deserve/need it. Some abuse it. After all, their role models are the criminal cabal in dark suits up in Washington anyway. And we all know how they take advantage of the system and no one is doing anything about that.

I personally don't understand the soda pop, candy and sugar-coated cereal purchases but, it's their life. They are hardwired to be this way so you have to believe, this is their journey. It may not bode well with us but at the end of the day, it's their life. They are not hurting us.

Here's a wise saying:
“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” Buddha.


Let it go.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28926408


How are they not 'hurting us', when it is coming out of the working class pockets so that they are now the truly poor in the country???

It seems the roles have indeed be reversed and that is not 'spreading the wealth', it is stealing from one to feed the other at the expense of one of them.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28923050



"Them" would actually include 3 groups.
You do not even see them.
Poor, middle and wealthy
Poor are still poor, middle is still shrinking. Who does that leave?
Ooooooh, I forgot about them....
Its all a shell game and you are loosing
