What jobs do you suggest we get. I'm not lazy I showed up for work everyday in last job for year and half and get canned for because I said one thing that was absolutely true about one person's lack of work habits. There are lazy ass people out there like that but wait until you lose your job and have no resources whatsoever to work with because the assholes at the ivy league yacht club stole all your jobs and retirement and that will come soon...your ass should be laughed at and tormented because it will come to your ass, too. Do you really think Donny Trump( Ivy league asshole, yacht club asshole, Tom Brady's butt buddy, Bobby Knight's butt buddy) or Nancy Pelosi or any the trash in Washington Dc are gonna give one rats ass about you? Tough shit when it happens to you. Donny is illuminati just like the rest of them if one would ever look at the hand gesture signals he sending out to everyone. Maybe you ought to go to work for free just like the Coast Guard is doing and the secret service and not get paid for a while or ever again so we can make sure all the Ivy assholes don't miss their big ass yacht and Porsche payments at the expense of everyone else...it might cause the thieving brats to have a tummy ache if they got it taken away from them and we can't have that can we.

PTSD—the kind that comes from combat—is associated with low cortisol. It is not endocrinologocally low. It is suboptimal. Elevating cortisol to optimal levels contains startle and intrusive symptoms.

The researcher to google is Rachel Yehuda.
 Quoting: Polkahonkus


I am familiar with cortisol's relationship with fight/flight/freeze and can appreciate your research and the fact that you have a brain. You make a good point and I am sure that could defiantly help.

Probably these are not welfare queens.

ProbBly those are Medicaid doctors who prescribe whatever you want for cash and take your monthly EBT as a bribe to act right.

Seriously. I bet the cards are not in their name. I think they acquired the cards somehow. Maybe bought them off addicts or maybe fake identity.

A better alternative would be to provide local food warehouses that only stock healthy alternatives to be sold through the program

The only way to pay for them is through the EBT or Snap card.

These cards would not be valid for anything or anywhere else.

Consumers could shop at these places and choose foods based on their family's tastes and possible food allergy needs.
 Quoting: nacho daddy


California has such a program called Golden Harvest. You can buy boxes of vegtables and meats and fruit. Don't know about bread flour cereal and such guess that has to come out of monthly budget. No problem. What I don't want is Monsanto poison which I guarantee has their grubby hands all over this I bet.

Trump is depopulating the poor.

I bet the food is poisoned in those boxes. Maybe not arsenic to kill a horse but doused in whatever poison makes the rural poor so slack jawed sparse haired and flubby. Bet there’s Diet Mountain Dew in those boxes.

Young military families are foodstamp and WIC eligible.

Trump is breaking heartland infrastructures. His food boxes kill local small town grocers who need food stamp revenues. There’s a REASON the few locally owned grocery stores accept food stamps—they need the revenues.

And yes, it takes sacrifice and hard work to not accept handouts, but plenty have done it because they chose not to accept the strings and stipulations that came with the free bread.

Did they not have private pensions?
Did they not save for retirement?

Did they, instead, blindly trust the government to provide for their old age 100%? Because if they did, then they should trust the food coming from it.

If you trust the gov - trust them.

If you don't trust them - do not put yourself in a position, intentionally, in which you will be dependent upon them.

Why is this such a difficult concept?

If I don't trust a con artist, I'm not going to move in with him. But you would?

as for "extra" (FEBs check in Jan) money on the card, that ain't happening either ... do you actually KNOW someone who got "extra" ? or just read about it on the internet

Re: FOOD STAMPS GONE: Good Bye SNAP - Hello "America's Harvest Box"!
I get EBT.

I got horrendous PTSD while living in the Arabian Gulf in the three years leading up to 9/11. For most of you, the horror began on that date. For me, it began in 1998 when I was stationed in Bahrain.

I have been disabled for 5 years now, but I have worked 4.25 out of those 5 years, full time...including in a factory doing very hard physical labor, approaching the age of 50.

Because of my time in the factory, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on both hands within the course of 2 months.

I am not a slacker, and have a hard time even asking for help.

It has taken me months of hard work to get my hands to work again. I declined physical therapy, because I know I can do it myself, at no cost to taxpayers.

I am grateful for you ALL for paying into a system in which I can rehabilitate.

Not every disabled person getting EBT is a loser.

When you lump us all into that 'box,' it is incredibly hurtful.

I spent almost 18 years overseas supporting service men and women, and I am proud and grateful that I did.

I took small children into my own home who had dually-deployed parents...and accepted NO money for doing so.

The hate I am seeing here breaks my heart.

hf
 Quoting: LilMiss



What are you doing about horrendous PTSD (besides collecting in it)?

If I told you how to fix it, would you? Unlike the physical therapy you avoid, it costs taxpayers nothing.

Check your cortisol. Don’t let doc tell you “normal”. Check the number. Find natural means to get that number into the optimal range. Tell me if PTSD is still “horrendous” or just some quick reflexes and smart instincts.

PTSD saved my sweet bippy AGAIN two years ago. I don’t think it’s “horrendous” and I’ve never felt sorry for myself. Even when I was so depressed I didn’t think I’d see fifty I knew I became such a pain in the ass doing what was right and doing what (and whom!) I loved.

It’s only shitstorm when you deplete cortisol. Keep cortisol optimal and you get back control over arousal. There’s a lot you can do alone (without therapist or doctors).

Women with PTSD get low progesterone in midlife. It makes us whiny. Thirty dollars a month for a good progesterone replacement..

Post traumatic stress changes are very real. It’s called growing up. The world is not safe and adults aren’t meant to believe it is. I don’t know about you, but men without the reflexes and hypervigilance, men who still fear death, seem awfully boyish to me. PTSD is just adulthood with hormone imbalance. It’s not “horrendous” ffs, to know about life.

I begged and cried and raged and bullied trying to get ptsd treatment out of publicly funded sources. This was in a good liberal state. Same situation in Nebraska or Missouri gets folks zombies up real quick. They don’t care about your life. Their job is to sort you as gonna get free shot and not gonna get free shit. They turn on a dime, too. One day they are refusing to do their fucking job because they think you have hidden riches but still want free shit and the next day they’ve changed your tune and you are the noble and worthy exception to the rule. You still don’t get good treatment for PTSD.

Keep the free shit if you enjoy it. I don’t care if you get free shit.

I get mad hearing about “horrendous” PTSD eating up women’s lives. It’s cortisol and progesterone. You may always have a wonky HPA but you don’t have to be crippled by it.

No o e has to be crippled by PTSD. Fix your cortisol and ptsd is contained.
 Quoting: Polkahonkus


Thank you so very much for the information and clarification.

This thread seemed to bring out a lot of emotionality in many of us.

I will get to my doctor and have that checked.

I am hesitant to take any hormones, because cancer has run high in my family, but will try and keep an open mind, as well as discuss it with my doctor. He is a good guy.

And, fyi, I am no longer crippled by the PTSD. I went undiagnosed for a long time. WHen it was dignosed, I sought to help alleviate it through more natural means. The medical establishment wanted me on high doses of Xanax. That is not my thing.

Much gratitude to you.

I took small children into my own home who had dually-deployed parents...and accepted NO money for doing so.

The hate I am seeing here breaks my heart.

Re: FOOD STAMPS GONE: Good Bye SNAP - Hello "America's Harvest Box"!
I get EBT.

I got horrendous PTSD while living in the Arabian Gulf in the three years leading up to 9/11. For most of you, the horror began on that date. For me, it began in 1998 when I was stationed in Bahrain.

I have been disabled for 5 years now, but I have worked 4.25 out of those 5 years, full time...including in a factory doing very hard physical labor, approaching the age of 50.

Because of my time in the factory, I developed carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on both hands within the course of 2 months.

I am not a slacker, and have a hard time even asking for help.

It has taken me months of hard work to get my hands to work again. I declined physical therapy, because I know I can do it myself, at no cost to taxpayers.

I am grateful for you ALL for paying into a system in which I can rehabilitate.

Not every disabled person getting EBT is a loser.

I hear you.

My dad's health was failing and he lived on exactly 1350.00 per month, because he was 100.00 over the limit he was demied ebt. I was not, because I made NO income.

My dad worked every day of his adult life, as a restaurant manager he made very little ,his wife was a homemaker. She died 17 years prior. the company he worked at for 30 or more years, VIPS, was bought in a leveraged buyout - to steal the money out of the pension fund.

he never complained.



I started getting the ebt after my dad suffered a stroke which left him unable to speak coherently (aphasia) I became his translator. He had heart failure, and other conditions so he was in pain most of the time.



Though we lived far under the federal poverty level, my dad saved money so that every year he could buy a family in need, a thanksgiving dinner which he would find through a friend who was a social worker. all anonymously, every year until he died.

I could go on and on.



It seems as if many of you enjoy speaking down to "the poor" --- does it make you feel powerful when you push down someone less fortunate than you?

i don't mean to be disrespectful.

Talking about my dad like that, I am going defend his honor.
