Why don't all of you who are telling me how I hate animals, read my posts and the entire thread.
1. I have stated that animals can help with disease and can actually help you live longer
2. I have stated that animals should be in ALF's with old people
3. I have stated that I have many animals and that I have insurance for my animals(yes, insurance)
4. I have stated that this is not about the government, but about piorities
5. It is political madness based on the sites line that states those on Federal support are the ones that qualify
6. Why not make it available to everyone.
I then go on to show hiw it is not just those who are on government assistance who could use help for their pets.
So, stop the hate folks,
My point was this, which was in the OP
if you are too poor to feed yourself...don't have a pet. It is not a right. You have a choice. If you want Federal Assistance you should not have a
pet, especially if you have children.
Here, I am not saying that you should never own have a pet if struggling, you should prioritize. Children should be first. If you do not feel that
way, fine, we have a 'difference of opinion' which I also touched on but you are not reading the whole thread.
I did not blame the government for the program. However, children in America starve each and every day. I also put in a link for that.
So, why all the hate? If anything, I have seen a person cannot have an opinion on children and whether or not they are more important than a pet but
can be told they are wrong if they want to help kids. One of you Flamed me and told we there are no starving kids in America????
Pets are great for kids. For comfort. There are also TONS of programs already out there. So on more is not needed if there is still one child without
a meal in America.
Free neuter programs...free flea medicine.

Now, do you really still want to beat me up ? Tell me i am evil and hate animals?
In 2008, there were less than 30 million on food stamps. That number has swelled to close to 50 million in the last few years. I think there is more
of a need to help families right now than dogs. I think they are covered by existing programs.
