When I go to check out at a grocery store, I can’t see a card someone else is using and I don’t care - it is none of my business. I don’t know their personal situation, I know nothing about them and shouldn’t.
I won’t be the food police, I won’t condemn anyone for what they buy or don’t buy as that’s what liberals do.
Marcella, I understand an aspect of what you say, and I agree, but I do disagree on a very important concept: it IS my business. It is my money they are doing that with.
Like you, I am not going to watch what they lay on the counter.
However, if I find myself in an environment where a person I encounter talks about engaging in that kind of treatment of money (given to that person by people like you and me) I will darn sure take exception to it.
If I didn’t have anything involved, I would agree 100% with you.
But because of the fact my money is involved, we disagree.
If it were up to me, we would have ONE assistance program, a monthly cash dole. NO section 8, no food stamps, no free cell phones, no disability and not even unemployment insurance (same program). It would be the same minimal amount nationally with states free to add on if they wish.
Let them figure out how to manage their money during that month, I think they’ll figure things out within a few.
Very well said. While I know there is abuse in the food stamp program,no one on here knows one thing about the people on assistance - yet,they spew their hatred of those using the card. The comments I read on here are so judgmental that it makes me angry. You should never judge anyone unless you have walked a mile in their shoes. Maybe some of these well-dressed, people driving nice cars lost their jobs due to the wonderful/s obama economy and these vehicles are paid off before the family went on food stamps.
And for people to make a list of what others should and shouldn’t eat makes me think they’d be right at home with nanny bloomburg in NYC. This type of judgmental and superior attitude is right up his alley - after all, he banned salt, transfats, soda over 16 oz, and is now working on getting rid of styrofoam. Seems he knows what’s best for everyone, just as some on here do.
