“these "tiny homes" look more spacious and way wwaayy nicer then my place...i dont think this really counts as "having less is more"

“if her doc says shes Ok to continue to do it,then ok....im sure she talked to her doctor about it...one thing huff post...comparing a woman whos lifting HEAVY weights to a woman who ran/jogged the chicago marathon ISNT the same...just saying..yes they are both physical activities but they are completely different”
it does suck when some people "ruin" it for the rest of us..my daughters 4th bday is next month and i tried to buy frosting for her cake(i make her cake every year,but i suck at making frosting lol) i wasnt able to purchase it with my Link card due to cuts they are making...the good thing is,i dont buy frosting often so its not a big deal,but the fact still matters that the 1 time a year i actually wanted/needed to buy it,i couldnt!
its also a shame that those who as saying things should be banned most likely have never or will never be on food stamps,therefore i doubt they know how hard it is to afford proper food with the limited amount you get! unless your like me,and plan it all out and clip coupons,its easier to just buy the cheap over processed foods!
and sadly its a endless cycle it seems...i was raised on food stamps,back when it was actual paper and looked like knock off monopoly money(soooo much more embarrassing to use then,then it is now!) my mom was a single mom of 4,worked 2 jobs and we where still low income...alot of people who receive snap also grew up receiving it,some people just dont care and the cycle will go on,but others actually try to get out!”

“And don't forget that with working parents often (usually?) working two jobs each, it gets difficult to go home and cook a complete meal from scratch.”

“and i just noticed my other post didnt get posted :( oh well..im not gonna retype it all lol”
“were a family of 3 and only receive $225/m in food stamps.. i budget like crazy,i mean plan every 2 weeks(or if im feeling crazy i meal plan for a month) i even clip & use coupons(yes with my food stamps!) all because we dont get much and it helps me buy healthier food for my family! the more FS money i save the "higher"quality food i can buy!
yes we still pay taxes! like everyone else,taxes come out of our paychecks! i know some people think that just because you get food stamps you dont pay taxes but its not true..you still do!
i do buy chips&soda..my husband takes chips & soda to work to have with his lunch..like everyone else.....i buy fresh& as much organic food as we can afford....if we want people on FS to eat healthier we need to make it more accessible to them! maybe some of the organic & heather foods can be lowered for those with food stamps! like how some stores have "club prices" sometimes its only $1.00 off the normal price but still...every dollar helps!
not everyone who gets food stamps buys junk food all the time...and i have seen some serious abuse with people who use food stamps..i witness a man,in front of me..purchase a cart full of red bulls with his food stamps! he had atleast 10 cases of red bulls!!”
“and this is before they started making cuts...im on SNAP and i tried to buy frosting for my daughters Bday ,her Bday is in a few weeks...wasnt able to buy it! i was told by the cashier that they are making cuts on the things we can buy with out food stamps..”

“That's just sad.. And istm that you may be dealing with a clerk with a bad attitude. According to the USDA,'s own guidelines, frosting is food. I doubt very much that Congressional Tpublicans have passed an anti-frosting bill recently (tho I could be wrong, given how mean they are.) Hope you can work it out, and my best to you and your daughter.”
“ha...sad he got kicked out but some bars have dress codes..i know theres a few bars here in chicago that has some hard core dress codes..so whats the difference if its in Australia?! plus..that is one sick ,as in gross, mullet! lol”
“how sad..and if you read the full article it says the child is now on medication...if the parents knew something was wrong with their child,that he had anger problems,etc then it should of been brought up to the principle at the start of the school year and the childs doctor(if it wasnt before)...the fault is at the parents& the school...”

“It is absolutely not the school's fault. How do you get to place blame on the school? It is not their place to force the parents to discipline their child. The parents knew what a terror he was as they warned the school about his behavior. The school's hands are tied because if they tried to do anything about it, they could be sued by the ignorant parents. The sad thing is that this child has recieved no discipline in his young life. Children that do not have consequences to pay for bad behavior end up resenting their parents because they know their behavior is bad and it angers them that their parents did not care enough to discipline them. He might need meds or he might need to be spanked and not allowed to treat people with such disrespect. Parents had rather give their kids meds nowadays instead of having the confidence to discipline them. Parents do your jobs so the schools and their "victims" don't have to do it for you! He is your responsibility and no one elses'. Don't have kids if you don't have enough confidence to discipline them and refuse to allow them to show disrespect for others.”
“wow! i mean atleast she invented something thats making her money but my god..why didnt she ever teach her kids to help clean or clean up after themselves?! even my 3 year old helps around the house..when i married my husband he was a mess but after awhile he learned to clean up after himself(due to me complaining) but hey it worked!...all this does is teach kids(hers in general) that the mom/wife is gonna be the one cleaning up after you no matter what and that you dont need to help out or clean up after yourself like any other responsible and suitable adult out there...its wrong and sad...........but hey! atleast shes making millions :/”

“This terd don't even have a job! He's to lazy to get up and wash his hands. He uses the bathroom shower curtains to wipe his hands after he's done in the toilet and then don't even flush!”

“come on! they dont even have a case...i know plenty of people who worked at in-n-out burger and they get TONS of applications a day!! im sure there could be a single mom in atleast one of those apps that didnt get hired! the fact IS that you just didnt get the job!! unless they said "sorry your black and over 40 we wont hire you" then shut up and look for somewhere else to work! everyday millions of people DONT get hired for a job..even if they think they are "qualified" for it...but you dont see other people making crazy claims and trying to sue!!”
