Ah, okay yes. I can't stand people who plan on being on handouts for the rest of their time. Using it to get back on your game plan? Sure, but forever? No.

God forbid you had to wait to feed your alcoholism while someone got milk and eggs on WIC. Seriously? The OP either trolling or a jack ass.

Damn, I take it the Bronx is alot like where I live. Dump houses with luxury cars parked in the front lawn. Could be nice to have your meals paid for so you can take on a car payment. But I will pass. When I was young, you came to your folks if you were in dire straits. Whatever happened to them?

Ummm. WIC is not a welfare program, most woman around here go on WIC for a while to help out with the cost of the kid. Depending on family size, you can make quite a bit to qualify, the husband will often work full time at a job but they still qualify for the benefit. It is not what would be considered a welfare program and programs tied to this also give out free birth control products to keep unwanted births down. I would say that thirty percent of the people around here qualify for WIC.

If you are going to pick on something, find one of the other programs that are actually a waste and costly and only benefit a few people like some of our military contractors.

I'm not trolling so I guess I'm just a jackass. Thank you for helping me simmer my alcoholism down for just the moment.


BTW it wasn't just eggs and milk. I was about 80-90 bucks worth of food I would like donated to me. Not.

My family received WIC for three out of four of our children and no we receive food stamps, no public assistance, but I receive disability. At the time of receiving WIC, I worked, worked alot, almost eighty hours a week, but still was given this assistance. Now, I receive disability, my back and neck are shot, most days it is hard to even get out of bed but I do for the sake of my children.

To make this story short and get to the point, while I have received disability going on four years now and have been told that I will never work again, I CHOOSE that answer not to be the one that I want. Many in our society take advantage and do in fact 'leech' off of the system, but I have made a choice. Through these years of not being able to work, I chose to go back to school and earn a Bachelors degree, learning something that would allow me to work and not 'leech' off of the system, doing work that would not require physical labor. With that being said, I still feel as though I and my family are being attacked each time someone makes a statement of those that leech, as I receive some benefits and feel stigmatized for using this help.

What gets me though, I am not given public assistance, though my family could desperately use it. In a situation such that I am in, I have yet to understand why? They say we make twenty dollars too much, but, I have yet to figure out how. The system is a mess, try living off of 1200 a month after everything the government takes out, leaving one with $900 for a family of six. Yet, there are those that have never lifted a finger and receive thousands a month, what am I doing wrong? Thankfully, I have only eleven more weeks of school, another surgery, and then, just hopefully, I can find some meaningful employment to support my family without the assistance of anyone. Sorry for my rant!

No abortions. I am pro-life, not pro leech.


So, you're all for protecting the unborn life, but once it's born, they're losers... How typical.

If you're shaky because you haven't had your morning beer, you've got more serious problems than having to wait in line.



My beef is with people that take the free meals for what I see as a greedy entitlement.


And you know that the person in line was one of these "leeches"?

While I agree with you that this is just a gripe of mine, I did not create a rant the MIC. I suppose in the future I could pen a thread on the wastefullness thereof.

Your post kind of says something to me though. You say it is not a welfare program, but the dictionary tells me that a welfare program is to provide financial support given to people in need. Do these 30% around you truly need it, or are they gaming the system? Government produces no money but what it takes form producers.

I can relate to your frustrations.

It's usually pretty easy to spot the ones that abuse it. Not all people do of course but, there are always those that feel they are entitled to being taken care of at the expense of others.

I can always spot them because they usually have about 4 - 6 kids and at least two carts stocked full of name brand "junk" basically.

We are fortunate to be able to afford our groceries and pay all of our bills with money to spare for savings but, I still buy generic everything.

Very rarely will I buy a name brand and that's only if it's on sale. I look at the carts of these people and for the life of me can't understand why they wouldn't stretch their free food money out by not buying name brands.

I just don't get it.

My brother in law is basically a waste of space. Hasn't worked in 10 years, has 3 young kids, lives rent free with his parents.

He also gets free medical/dental care, free food, free school lunches for the kids, reduced costs for internet service. You name it!

The man does not have 1 bill to pay. He sits in his room, pissing in a bucket because he's too lazy to actually walk the 20 or so steps to the bathroom and he pops pain pills all day. He is a complete waste!

Then there is my husband that gets up every weekday, commutes an hour and a half to work and is gone 12 hours everyday just so he can provided for us....and I guess his brother as well since his tax dollars help subsidize this piece of craps lifestyle.

Very frustrating.

Mr. sublik, may I commend you on a most sincere post. I know not what of your disability, but I must be most appreciative of your grit. If I was injured, I would imagine it takes alot of resolve to come to terms and find a different avenue of life. Please do not feel attacked as you are not the circumstance I was refering to. Please do not get on Public Assistance, because I believe it to be a bane to the Public.

If you are going to complain at least complain about the right things.
Unless WIC is different there, it gets like bread milk and eggs and then baby stuff.

So sounds like she was using food stamps as well.

Not everyone abuses the system, but I guess if one guy says he knows one lady that does and you saw this that means it is a rampant problem...

Funny thing about WIC--my wife and received it when we had our first child back in 2003, and she was still in the military and I was out and going to college full time. We qualified because of the one-income (basically--I had a crappy part-time job with low hours), but the point I'm trying to make is that WIC almost is an entitlement in the military with young families.

Looking back on it now, there was no embarrassment using WIC around a military post (Fort Campbell, in our case), and it was highly encouraged to get on it. I wonder now if it is some sort of grooming to be content being on government subsidies in order to get by.

We finally realized that we didn't need it and got off of the system, and I look back now with a bit of embarrassment that we had that well,-we-can-get-it-so-we-should-use-it mentality, but we've matured (we were only in our mid-20s at the time) and realized that living that way is unacceptable for two fully capable and intelligent people.

I think that the same thing happens in poor areas of America--there is no shame associated with these government programs in their communities, so there's no self-respect lost and no real motivation to get out of the system.

To your points in reverse order:

3) I don't know defintively if she was a leech. I took at point of view when it took ten minutes because she didn't sperate her goods. She let the cashier reach all over to do it. A sign of entitalism to me.

2) I explained earlier on that my shakes were probably not Alcohol related seeing as the shaking came from energy drinks and no food. Do you think an alcoholic could hold down the same job for nine years walking on roofs and beams without one injury? I should make a thread on how scary it can be to 30 feet off the ground with no safety net!

3) The leeching part was misconstrued. The babies deserve the best care in the world. Those that are in the Church should be providing the helpless children as Christ demanded. I am saying people that leech off of the Governmental System, have the wrong mindset.


Maybe this is pointless, but maybe I was judging her wrong, or maybe not. I am just pissed when people i know are worse off than me, have kids that the responsible missus and me don't have. On our own volition. I checked out your dog threads because they are awsome. Sorry your avatar is no longer with you. We have three dogs and those are our babies because they are more in-line with our finances and what we could give to a child.

Because there shouldn't be!

If you need help get it.
There should be shame if you abuse it sure, but if you are at a point in your life where you have to wonder how you are going to get food with the money you have then where is the shame to get help?

This is the same thought process from the religious right, not saying that is you, and if freaking flys in the face of what they preach.

And how do we know that is really a line for a grocery store?
