Food stamps are disbursed at higher allotment than what I spend per month for groceries

No they shouldn't be getting their nails done...I can't afford to get my nails done. You must be trying to antagonize me, hmmmmm.


I only take issue with that, when it's an able bodied young person, then again, how do we know they aren't looking for work and trying to keep neat and groomed?

I myself do not ever go to the beauty shop since all they do is mess up my hair anyway

If you are living in your mother's house and did not declare her as part of your household on your application, along with all of her assets and income, you just admitted to Federal fraud on a public forum.

I don't know what world you live in that water is free. More and more privatized, more and more expensive.

At any rate, food stamps are there to keep people from going hungry. You can't say what kind of food one person or another eats because then all you "small" government folks are intruding on people's diet that exists for cultural or heritage reasons.

Sure, people shouldn't use food stamps to pig out on chunky monkey til they get a diabetic coma. But the posters above are giving anecdotal personal experiences, hardly objective proof that all people are getting alcohol or ice cream only. And what about the alcohol...I don't think that should be on food stamps. The money saved could be used to open up some alcoholic and drug rehabilitation centers...talk about saving some moolah.
