Bike, carpool, walk, public transpo to work.
No cable.
No phone. Get a cheap prepaid 20$ phone.
Food pantry, WIC.
Can't afford food your child, you surely can't afford food for your pet. Give it up.
Don't like mama coming in and out...take yourself outside with your baby and get some exercise and fresh air.
Coupon, collect cans, and do odd jobs around the neighborhood for folks for extra cash.

I feel like people do not understand what it means to work, let alone work hard.

im so trying not to talk ugly about the 'story' as i read and dissect it. but um...if the quick fix to her lack of adequate insurance is a marriage license to become eligible for the guy's insurance, wtf havent they walked their blk azzes to the courthouse yet instead of letting her mental health deteriorate more? I dont know about chicago, but nj, if you qualify for food stamps, you qualify for medicaid. so what is the problem? to high falutin to standin line at the dept of social services for the care that you need access to?

dude works 62 hours a week. hell, that is what you are supposed to do when you are young and trying to get on your feet properly? That is a 40 hour a week schedule job and a 23 hour part time which is probably 5 nights a week and the oher 2 nights are at the trap house, smoking weed and and playing madden an at the chicago after hour spot.  wtf. I worked 3 jobs b4 for years at a time, not b/c i had to but b4 i like to earn money for security - financial stability - financial goals. Goals. he is working 2 jobs while you watch the judge shows and love and hip hop on cable and youtube tutorials on your $150 high speed comcast cable/internet bundle.

any o' that has a $150 cable bill but cant reduce it to basic cable to have money for self/baby/fiance to have the safety & security of a $55 city sticker for the car can kiss my black azz. it is time to sink or swim. thats how you learn through fire to go from child to adult. what we do as a nation.

*shrugs*  I would donate to them before I did this damn ALS code for keeping white people distracted from #Ferguson  

I just wish there was something out there to be a part of that mattered.  Something that would actually truly positively affect us as a people.

she can't get on his insurance without being married? I know people who used to carry their boyfriends (women doing too much again), but has that changed in past 10 years?

It has BEEN bad.

I have seen a lot of begging posts and though some are worth helping out with, there's also others which are just lazy people outright asking you to wipe their ass.

It's odd because we have a negative attitude towards help programs like welfare but here we are willing to give THOUSANDS towards people makinh potato salads or killing black kids.

I'll never understand it.
