I'd call them the good guy, for having cheaper milk than most places, paying taxes when half of America doesn't and giving millions to charity. Now, about this person who is using food stamps...he's obviously not paying income taxes, he wouldn't have money to give to charity either and wal-marts taxes are paying for his foodstamps. Yea... Bad bad wal-mart for not giving the guy the milk for free.
    Thank goodness I doubt many people on food stamps would feel that way. They are probably grateful for them and grateful to Wal-mart where the prices are cheaper and they can get more food.
    Where do you come up with stuff?

    Yeah I know it is always the poor guys fault. Never mind the profits wal mart is making off food stamps

    How does this crap always devolve into an attack on successful people and organizations? Why is it that any time cuts to programs for the poor are mentioned it is always 'the rich are stealing from the poor!" Just how the hell is WalMart, as an entity that employs millions, provides entry level jobs and career opportunities for people that barely if at all made it through high school, that donates millions annually to charity, an organization that pays many millions in tax revenues, the 'bad guy' here? WalMart didnt tell those that failed to prepare for a future to spend more times on drugs and sex in high school than their education. WalMart didnt create the disability in those truly in need. Successful people dont oppress jack squat. The only people that are truly oppressed are the ones that are either victims of their own dismal effort at life or their parents. If people spent more time on taking care of themselves and on a doctrine of personal responsibility and less time blaming everyone else for their own dismal existence they would be a lot more successful. If there were a lot less failures as individuals there would be a lot more resources for those with legitimate needs.

    The cure for food stamps is jobs.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Yes, post of the week. Except that even successful people who are educated and who have tried are not failing because of laziness or stupidity, but because of terrible economic conditions brought on by decades of corruption (corporate and government). To deny that massive corruption and greed is responsible for this horrible mess we're in is either very dishonest or sadly delusional.

    That plays into it, but that's also playing the "Victim" card.
    I was unemployed for a while, I didn't take food stamps, welfare, or jobless bennies. My wife an dI cut spending, made sacrifices and worked on her pay check alone scarping by sometimes living off raman noodles for several days. I blamed no one, but myself for failing to a land a job, the economic situation made it difficult, but not impossible. I knew, if I suddenly was able to exist without a job and have money left over due to aide programs... it would make it easier for me to NOT find a job. Necessity is the greatest teacher.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
