“The movie selection has greatly improved, but the movies are only an "extra." The real value comes if you buy a lot off of Amazon. I do and Prime has saved me so much money in shipping! But if you don't buy from Amazon and get things shipped to you, then, no, it isn't right for you.”

“What bothers me about it is this: The dollars that we all put into this system could be stretched so much further if there were some controls on luxury food items. I don't consider my food that I feed my family to be "coarse food" - I simply try to stretch my food budget with store brands, etc. I have no resentment and certainly no desire to control these folks.

Remember, the story was exactly about this - food stamps being used to buy luxury food items by someone who could easily get a job. My point was about luxury food items and wanting to see people who get a hand up in their lives use it wisely. I am, you know, entitled to my opinion and I didn't personally attack anyone as you did me.

I did not in any way imply that the benefit amount was too generous, nor did I imply that anyone should be punished. My premise was simple - try to stretch the food dollar. Period.”

“You'r conflating too many things here. It is of no consequence to you if a recipient's food budget runs out in a week or a month unless you have a desire to control someone. The amount of the benefit is not calibrated to supply lobster. If it were, you'd have a legitimate grievance. Whether someone could easily get a job is a different issue than whether they buy luxury food. Everyone would prefer to see a hand up used wisely, but there is a practical limit to how much we can micro-manage their food shopping habits without creating fraud where none need exist.

I don't mean to attack you, but I'm genuinely frustrated at how many people think that they own someone for throwing them crumbs, when it costs them no more or less whether the person eats wisely or foolishly.

I agree that if you can get a job you need to get one. But where are you seeing anyone collecting food stamps when they could EASILY get a job? Do you think Surfer Dude could easily get a job? Especially now? Would you hire him for anything but a gig? I wouldn't.”

“I wish they would just put more regulations on what types of food that people can buy with food stamps. It is frustrating to be in line with people with carts stacked up with "name brand" type foods and they pay with food stamp cards. My cart is filled with "store brands" (which is fine) because I am trying to stretch my dollars from working.

Even if they have a legitimate need for food stamps, they don't need luxury food. They can have store brands and generics right along with my family.”

AntiSocialSailor on Sep 22, 2013 at 18:33:07

“Why does that bother you? I really don't understand the mental process that goes on here? Are you implying that the benefit amount is too generous? Do you demand that they never eat anything but coarse food as some type of punishment? It doesn't cost the taxpayer a nickel more or less. The only thing I can figure is that it's a combination of re.sen.tmet and an overwhelming desire to control. Or, do you figure that for the few pennies a year it costs you personally, you own these people? Please. Someone explain this to me. It's not about your concern for their nutritional well-being; that much I know.”

“Actually you might want to go re-read... it says clearly that she "dipped into the money she made from modeling and began manufacturing." Additionally, she started selling the product on her own before she approached Wal-Mart. Probably she re-invested that money back into the business. I know because that is exactly how I grew my own business by starting small and re-investing my profits back into it.”
