FTR (even though I don't think y'all are talking about me) I don't have any problem with black folks getting food stamps. As long as they are available, get em.

How many years did black folk work without getting paid?
How many years have black folk been getting paid without working?

Until those numbers are equal OR they cut each one of us a big ass check, bleed em dry.

However comma I'm gettin real sick of hearing how you can't feed your 4 kids just 5 meals during the week, 6 on the weekends (and provide the occasional holiday ham) with 400 - 700 hundred dollars.

I'm getting even sicker of all these lil mouths full of silver caps waddling around clutching 20 oz bottles of Pepsi, tryina be the Beyonce commercial but only managing the 1st half of each verse cuz they outta breath. <----True story.  Disapprove

I think we should make some type of collective thread where this is discussed, gardening types, low priced meals that aren't made from sub-par/low-calorie food.

$500 on low quality food v.s. nutritionally dense food...for five people? That takes work and practice.

Yes YOU!!!!

LOL - nah, you  make me smile.  I don't know who can't make 400-700 into amazing meals for a family.  They either don't know how to cook or how to shop.   I wish that was more of a focus in services provided.   Instead of doing drug testing of recipients do some shopping/cooking workshops.

Agree. My kids don't drink sodas at all and they might get about 3 pieces of candy if that out of the whole year. To them yogurt with granola is a treat. I do bake alot though so they get cake and brownies and stuff but even that is rationed out in small portions. People try to call my kids tiny but they are actually very healthy weights they are muscular and slim. The people calling them tiny and saying that they need to eat are the same ones stuffing their kids with micky d french fries and coco cola. They think that their kids being big for their age is a badge of honor but its justchildhood obesity.

We need more community gardens especially in the inner-city.  There are so many empty lots in my city that could easily be turned into a vegetable garden.

If you took a massive sh*t in your panties, wouldn't you prefer to throw them away though?

SN: how do people wash cloth diapers? scrape the sh*t off in the toilet? throw the sh*t in the washer? rinse in the sink?

I would gag and die, but more power to yall green gals Thumbs Up

well when my little sister was in cloth diapers, we dumped the crap into the toilet.  we also had a diaper service to pick up the soiled diapers and clean them.  anyway, i don't think infant poop is all that horrible anyway...
