What we Need is More People on Food Stamps

For the record we qualify for every bit of this crap and I will not take it.

I heard a segment on NPR about this , they claim there are many people on Social Security that will not take it and are not eating properly because they can not afford to do so .

It is none of my business , but if you qualify and especially if you have children , you should take it. We buy our groceries and do not buy much organic, very little beef, very little processed food and for 3 people I estimate we spend $700

I appreciate the sentiment Pitbull, but daily bread is always forthcoming. We still have far more than most of the world. I cannot look a man in the eye and tell him he needs Jesus when I know he’s paying my bills. My God owns the universe. We will always have exactly what He thinks we need.

It is frustrating that he people I would willingly give to are the least inclined to take it.

On the other hand, I would not take it either.

We have people not only milking the situation , we have criminals . The program was designed for people that were below a certain line . I pay my taxes for people like you :slight_smile: FUCK any one that does not understand

Why do they have recruiters? Even in socialist Norway there is not people “selling” social services like that.

Tibulus is subjecting his family to subnutrition because he is afraid of what others will think :slight_smile:

I am happy that I can work my ass off to support my family rather than get money from the state. I don’t know much about Tiribs situation so I won’t judge.

Possibly but the program is designed to subsidize people that can not afford to eat properly. He may live a very rural life. But if he were to live in an expensive area he is doing his family a disservic

We eat just fine. I’m still making gains and training in a gym with a Christian owner who gives me steep discounts in trade for working on his computers. I also get help from my church and people in it in various ways though they don’t have much either. I have no problem with that. It’s biblical. That is Christians giving to other Christians (or unbelievers) they know, voluntarily out of love. Not people in Arizona being legally extorted by pagans in DC to pay for others in Detroit that neither of them knows. That is tyrannical nanny state resource redistribution by force. An abomination in my sight. It is designed to create dependency in the populous and empower the state. It will not work on me. Ever.

Most importantly, as I say. I am first an ambassador of Christ in the earth. My job is to faithfully represent Him before a dying world. I cannot do that while allowing power mongering politicians to steal from them on my behalf.
