For Some Ohioans, Even Meat Is Out Of Reach
by Yuki Noguchi
All Things Considered, July 17, 2008 · A generation ago, the livelihood of Gloria Nunez's family was built on cars.
Her father worked at General Motors for 45 years before retiring. Her mother taught driver's education. Nunez and her six siblings grew up middle class.
Things have changed considerably for this Ohio family.
Nunez's van broke down last fall. Now, her 19-year-old daughter has no reliable transportation out of their subsidized housing complex in Fostoria, 40 miles south of Toledo, to look for a job.
Nunez and most of her siblings and their spouses are unemployed and rely on government assistance and food stamps. Some have part-time jobs, but working is made more difficult with no car or public transportation.

That's my point. If you restricted food stamps to staples only they would complain regardless of the fact that it would be better for them and taste good too.
No, working is more dificult when you are a pile of lard that cannot reliably lift even 25 pounds for 8 hours.
These parasites could use some starvation.
See my post #152. I’m offering classes in food preparation and I’ve got no takers. Heck, I’m offering to carpool with them to the farmer’s market and they won’t come.
Right now I’ve got $100 in groceries sitting here from a local church for two wives who “couldn’t afford food”. It’s been a week and they haven’t showed up to pick it up. They were supposed to come to pick it up today. (It was their third appointment to do so.) What was their excuse this time?
Because they had to go *shopping*!!!
When you slaughter that cow save them bones and roast them then use em for soup stock.
We eat every part of the buffalo in *our* house! lol!
There ya go. :)
Boo freaking who.
They already live on food stamps, subsidized housing and who knows how much else government handouts. I think I'll save my sympathy for people who actually deserve it.
Wow, they already have enough meat in their combined panniculi to feed a family of six for several months.
you know the saying- “cameras add 10 lbs.”....
So just how many cameras were pointed at these two???
Oh my God!
I honestly thought this was a joke.
Meeting your your 200 hour-pound work requirement would only take the pair of them them 20 minutes.
The junior whale is 19, born when the mother was roughly 21.
The senior whale was 23 when she was supposedly traumatized and left unable to work - and had never worked prior to the accident either.
The face of the modern Democratic Party.
Can I have the hangers?
Starving in Ohio ping.
Hanger steaks. Just joking as there is only one per cow. Make sure you get it and cook it bistro style with frites. MMMMMMM.
NPR....it’s all about the irony.
>I know I’ll be called a hater for this... but from your “blowup” of the photo, it looks to me like daughter has a tattoo on her right forearm/wrist area.<
Amazing you were able to look at the picture long enough to notice a tattoo.
If I had done so, this reply would have been written on a Braille writer.
