I mean, what you consider GOOD is irrational, so there is no point in me even seeking answers to this.

Although since you only pay $12 that doesn't make any sense, I am only going off what you said.

Nothing wrong with that. I just watched Captain Jack and except for the stealing and some other things I feel he raised those children well that way.

There are no more ideas than the ones you already rejected. your wife already asked about buying an RV and all these options were already discussed and discarded by her already.

you have your $700 disability but you also rely on food stamps. After paying only $12 for housing you surely can save as much as in a tent, but whatever. If you like the tent better.
Why should I be grateful to live in hell?

And I am sorry, but when did my wife post anything?

All the freebies are why their bank accounts can't hold more than a small amount. But the freebies aren't enough. They have higher standards.

They are better than all the other horrible dead-beat poor people around them.

This Godforsaken ****hole of a country doesn't recognize that these poor people, who do nothing to improve their situation, are better than all the others like them. They deserve more for some reason.

There is no logic to be found......
Excuse me???

When did I EVER ask for anything?

If sharing ideas is too much for you, get off my thread!

And how am I not trying to improve our situation?

THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS THREAD!

Wow, unbelievable. It's a little hard to have compassion and understanding when you say things like this, it makes it hard for anyone to take you serious. Plus, seems like you have all the answers and know everything already. Nothing anyone have said so far could work for you. Just seem like everyone here is just wasting their time telling you anything, like you are set in your ways.

You can't feed 7 people on $700 a month, that is $25 a week per person - so how are you feeding your family and how do you manage to pay for medical care?

Wow, just wow. I gave you my recommendation. Middle of the mountains away from society. You can acquire food and shelter from the land, homeschool your kids and crap down a mountain side on a slope so you won't have sewage issues.

Yeah, sorry....even in this country if you are poor and disabled there are limitations on what you can obtain. You're not going to find a 4-bedroom house in a safe, quiet area with no neighbors with a household income of $8400 a year.
Your best bet is to become a survivalist in Alaska or Idaho where you can hunt and grow all your own food. If that's physically impossible, then you are going to have to make sacrifices.

SNAP is not income.

And we are clearly too wealthy for TANF.

And no.

TANF has work requirements now. I just remembered that. Probably the kids are old enough wife is expected to work since not disabled.

Move to Minnesota, TANF for a family of 7 is $850. There might be a partial pass through of your $700 (VA pension?) You should already be getting SNAP benefits of around $917 a month. Minnesota isn't terribly expensive, rent a trailer or something in a rural part of the state. Here's a 3 bdrm mobile home for $490 a month. Unless one of you decides to get a job I doubt if you will be able to do better than that anywhere.
