    High Food Prices and Bums on Food Stamps

    MSNBC article on food stamp recipients strapped right now:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24670991/

    Notice the first problem with this story. The woman in the picture shopping looks like she is far from starving.

    The other thing is that food stamps were never meant to be the sole source of food income either.

    And naturally these 'poor' souls have so many mouths to feed since they are irresponsible as hell having children as a recreational activity.

    Thats because she doesn't need food stamps but is probably just looking for free food while honest to goodness starved people and families do go hungry.

    Those are not the breasts of a hungry woman.

    Like you said these sad poor people have to feed the 5-6 kids they have because they have nothing else to do but have unprotected sex and then demand the taxpayers to pay for them. Which if she didn't HAVE said kids could probably have made looking for a good honest job with a decent income possible in the first place.

    The system is broken.

    What? You don't like the fact that these scumbags pay for food with food stamps then use any sort of ACTUAL money they have for booze?

    Or the infamous, buy a pack of gum with a $50 food stamp, then spend the returned cash on trash mags and cigarettes?

    At least in AZ they can't do the latter anymore.

    LOL--needless to say, I was severely dissapointed after clicking through the link. You mean the breasts poking out of that woman's stomach?

    Looks at the title of the article:

    "Food stamp recipients scramble for food
    Amount not enough to cover rising costs of staples; more relaying on aid"

    She could feed her family of 6 easily with those things. I wanted to put a picture of that fat 6 breasted dancer from Jabba the Hutt's throne room in here but google image denied me.

    My mom, being the nice person she is, used to offer bums hanging around outside food marts "a cup of coffee" from inside and they would always say no.

    They wanted money.

    So lets see if I understand this correctly...

    If a person is receiving food stamps they must be...
    Lazy, fat, and burdened with a ton of kids? Add to that most likely a druggy/alcoholic. Single parent as well?

    Is there any chance maybe that there are people that are on food stamps legitimately? Just curious. Any one here actually think that MAYBE there might be someone on food stamps that doesn't milk the system and is affected by this? Or does everyone that has posted so far think that ALL welfare recipients are system abusing freeloaders? Again... just curious.

    Growing up is optional.
