I would like to see an end to food stamps.

Save our tax money and go back to neighbor helping neighbor.
Churches, food banks, local charities, are always having food drives.

We have a church in my town that hands out food every Friday and a food bank that hands out food whenever you need it.

People need to know that when they get food it's from the courtesy of others, not a deserved service from our govt. We the people are actually paying for it.

Then when you get back on your feet you can donate back to the food bank.

That's bullshit. They do not give you food whenever you need it.

In my area, the church in walking distance gives out food on Thursday mornings. Two bags of groceries. Not enough for a family to get through a week. But here's an even bigger catch, they put you on a list and you can only come once a month, not once a week.

Now was far as food stamps go, you could not live on food stamps alone anyway, without the supplement of those church donations or a soup kitchen to have your lunches at.

This is true and most often it is things you cannot use, including expired and spoiled items.

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Call my as you wish, though I am no shill, just someone that works hard and is fed up with people scamming the system taking a free ride on my dollars.

For every person that is scamming the system, there are a hundred people out there who really do need help but are denied on some bullshit technicality.

The idea that welfare people are all scamming the system is GROSSLY exaggerated.

If you are worried about people scamming the system, I suggest you go ask Don Rumsfeld where the $2.3 TRILLION dollars went from the Pentagon. That's a lot of hot meals for the poor.

I remember the uproar here when they wanted to have fingerprinting done for food stamp recipients - and it stopped mid 2000ish here in NY - but kept on in NYC --- just read an article how they want to end it in NYC.

Microchipping, heh - now that should be an interesting watch.

I see food stamps sold all over downtown, of course not being used the way it is intended for. :(

facepalm

How the f*ck are you going to "sell" foodstamps when they are electronic?

Oh, and BTW, you DO have to fingerprint in NYState for foodstamps.

We live in a country capable of growing massive amounts of food... For many years we have subsidized and paid farmers not to farm... How about we go back to food distribution centers... Oh, thats right, that would remove the avenues that allow people like Citi Corp to profit from food stamp sales...

Let the recipients volunteer at the supervised distribution centers if physically able... Would provide basic necessities and feed needy people while possibly giving them some self worth at the same time...

That is an excellent idea!!! I remember those.

They tried that in the Soviet Union too.

Almost everything is expired by a year or more now. Food banks are at critical shortages now. Many have closed entirely, others have drastically cut their ration levels, the number of times you can visit, etc.

Just to add too, about eating expired stuff, you have to sign a disclaimer that you wont sue them when you get sick from eating spoiled food.

listen to the guy on the video, he's about to shat himself over "the mark of the beast" chuckle

hell it doesn't scare me
i'll probably have to end up buying food for some poor shellshocked christian family hunkered down in their home awaiting the rapture

RE: Urgent!! Food Stamps To Be Ended Unless Microchipped!!
After that big storm we got here in the northeast, with all those power outages, I headed down to my local supermarket the next day.

Sure enough, with the power out, they were loading up the dumpsters with all sorts of food. All frozen foods, deli meats, butcher meats, all if it right in the dumpster. I was totally going to take a cart full when no one was looking. 12 hours in cold weather is not enough for meat to really spoil, they just can't sell it. I thought I was set for at least a month.

Until I saw them slicing each and every package with a razor, and then they dumped a few gallons of bleach in each dumpster.

They tried that in the Soviet Union too.

All I remember was the cheese distribution sites, but those were taken advantage of by the wealthy, including my former mother in law. One five pound block of cheese, per person, in the family with no id required. It was a great idea though, as the poor had something nutritious to eat.

Then there was food distribution sites each week at a grocery store, where a large global corp had a layoff, and each laid employee got a free weeks worth of groceries each week. Of course, there was abuse in that as well.

Then there were the churches that gave away Thanksgiving Dinners, funded with actual donations of food from the community, that was ruined for the needy, because Cadillacs with finely dressed folk started pulling up and demanding theirs, as well.

Do you notice a trend here, listed above? Each and every time, it was discovered that there were folks that were not in need, far from need, taking advantage of the system. This happens because those that are not in need have more resources to abuse a system.

With each system there are always going to be people taking advantage. But nothing like our own government does, each and every day for much much more.

Don't be so sure they won't do it. All of the same dynamics and principles apply in this argument, as that...
