I really wish people would stop whining about the FS.

WHAT ABOUT ALL THE FUNDING USED FOR THE GENOCIDAL WAR???



WHAT ABOUT ALL THE FUNDING USED TO COLLECT DATA FROM PEOPLES PRIVATE LIVES?



WHAT ABOUT ALL THE FUNDING USED TO JAIL PEOPLE FOR NOTHING ASIDES THEIR SKIN COLOR.

Their are tons of people that needs foodstamps, who otherwise would be broke. Okay, FoodStamps is not an joke either. Also if you feel you need the FS, then go out and get some. Stop crying about a person using FS at all. Bigger issues people, bigger issues



If people were unable to afford food, people might go back to break an enter. It also promotes business by government funding for the various places that takes FS.

The permanent Washington class, lobbyists, make certain their products remain eligible for SNAP, no matter who sits the oval or holds the majority.

No and if I was on the receiving end they'd get a quick pop in the lip.

I never really pay attention to what people buy or how they pay. I do notice when they get in the 10 items or less and have a full cart.

I never heard any one say anything about it.

Of course people haven't said anything. But they're thinking it.

Look at all the racist, sexist, bigoted, poor-hating folks on this forum. They walk around all day mumbling under their breath.

I had a friend who did abuse the system and did buy things like candy so I did call her out. I did see a lot of people buying junk and it infuriated me but this was a gang area and I was afraid the moochers would shoot me. I did one time see a woman trying to buy electronics with a Link Card.

My regular grocery store is set up so that you can't really see the screen when you're standing in line. I see lots of people pulling out cards. I don't make the effort to find out what kind of card they're using.

Nope. I've only run into it a few times and mostly it was WIC stuff that was obvious, because of the strict limits they have on what items actually qualify (wrong brand, size, flavor, variety, etc. and they don't accept it). I've heard the stories about places where you avoid Walmart on the first of the month and stuff, but I don't run into it since I don't get to Walmart much.

Anyone having issues with the services the govt offers needs to take it up with the one offering the service, not the customer. To have a problem with a customer using a service offered seems a wate of time.
