. I haven't even taken unemployment due to the pride and how people look at you, my self paid into it or NOT.

You should have taken unemployment instead of the food stamps. YOUR EMPLOYER paid for it. While the Food Stamps are paid for by your fellow wage earners.

.....the money for unemployment insurance benefits comes from taxes paid by employers. No deductions are ever made from a worker's paycheck for it. It is the Department of Labor that determines whether an unemployed worker qualifies for unemployment insurance......

The employer can actually tell the Department of Labor not to pay the unemployment insurance to you if they decide to get nasty. I had a go round with a Corporation on that issue. (I won)

Thought I would pass along a little information that seems not to have been mentioned yet.

In reply to your "Food Stamp Seeds" comment I present some information directly from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources website:

SNAP benefits may only be used to purchase food for human consumption and seeds/plants to grow food at home. Food Stamp benefits cannot be used for: household items, grooming products, tobacco, alcohol products, pet food, etc.

As you can see, for any family that has the space and capability for doing so, their food possibilities could be substantially increased by growing their own nutritious food. As far as I know these benefits are available nation wide. I have had family members who utilized these benefits at one time or another, and most grew gardens and harvested the food.

People simply need to know how to properly use their benefits. Too many have been raised on the fast food cash and carry basis and have no idea how to use their benefits to the best advantage.

Food is grown via labor. Labor only belongs to the laborer, forcing someone to give up the fruits of their labor=slavery. So in order for everyone to have the "right to eat" some must have no rights at all?

And what is a person with 6 kid's doing on welfare/food stamps!
