Keep the party rolling!
 
When I read comments on threads like this is always reminds me of that thread where everyone was riled up because some White professor that did a study about how Blacks encourage each other to fail, or something like that.
 
I think the public assistance system should be similar to unemployment, you have to put in/contribute in order to get something out.
 
I grew up poor, but expecting others to take care of me and the kids I chose to create was never instilled in me.
 
We all can go thru tough times but it's a damn shame when the ppl that have been busting their azz to work and go to school to elevate themselves most times can't get assistance when they need it but across town, the chic that hasn't done ish with her life but lay on her back and get knocked up, repeatedly, by some trifling dude gets all the help she needs.
 
Guess I'm obviously in the minority for caping for the ppl that I feel DESERVE help.


I agree. As long as there is that crutch why strive to earn a better living? After all we need someone to operate the drive-thrus at McD's or ring us up at Walmart. It's a setup.

There's no way to legislate giving a damn.  Some people just don't care, rich and poor.  Making low income people go through all sort of hoops because it makes some people feel better would be wasted energy and yet another struggle for people who do what they're supposed to.  It's not that serious to me.  I'm still much better off not being able to qualify for assistance.  I'm not at all envious.  I don't have to worry about people scrunching up their faces at my grocery cart because they don't approve of my choices.  I can buy whatever I want at any point in the month.  If I've had a sh*tty week and inappropriately seek comfort in food, I don't have to eat ramen noodles 9 days in a row to make up for it.  I'm good, thanks.

Milk is 6$ a gallon. Fed min wage is 7.80$.

The 1% is not interested in actually creating any jobs that pay a living wage and the purchasing power of a dollar dwindles every day. Between the cost of housing and medical care...better get comfortable with rice and beans.




I know how to farm... Im str8


I thought this also, until a damn white man on a truck who works for the government came around and told a few of my neighbors they could not grow a garden because they weren't zoned for it. He also tried to make them get rid of their fruit trees

Do you guys think people should be on welfare for their whole life? I always thought there should be some type of program or something to help people gradually be able come of it and support themeselves but, idk. That would be really expensive.

no, people need to be allowed to grow their own sh*t. Most people are too lazy to do it these days anyway though so i dont see what the big deal is. I could understand not being able to sell your home grown produce but growing it for personal consumption should be allowed

Check your state laws and see
that man straight up told those old people they needed a license
I know a lot of old people now grow small gardens in potted plants
y'all going after ebt dollars?
You are not on top of your political game
the government is taking away your damn rights and making damn sure you can't fend for yourself
Ebt should be the last of y'all worries right now
