    They don't even come close to covering necessities. Try paying rent and bills on $300-$600 per month.

    One thing I'd like the radical right fraud hounds to latch onto are all the defense contractors who owe taxes, have been repeatedly fined but still get huge 'defense' contracts.
    Your post reeks of so much fail it is beyond me to point it out to you, but let me ask you one simple question. In spite of being fined for unruly evil conservative dealings being a defense contractor, whom do you suppose we should buy that one special unique piece of military hardware from if the evil defense contractor is the only one that makes it?

    Those are some pretty serious charges you have there. What do you have to support your case?

    Try feeding a family of 6 and providing a roof over their heads living in the Sudan for what amounts to $30 a year..

    Don't belly ach to me about poverty. There's no such thing as poverty in the US only poor, unable, and lazy!! The unable is the ones we should care about, the lazy can eat **** for all I care!

    Nevada TANF Program | Nevada Temporary Cash Assistance for Needy Families

    Feels alot like coercion but here is the link. Note where it states the federal 12 core activities and that only a secondary education can be met while on TANF.

    So vomparing us with a third wold nation does what exactly? Its not laziness in most cases. Do you have kids? Have you ever worked 60 hours a week with barely enough income at the end of it to make rent and nothing left over for food? Have you ever seen your kids go hungry or take a diaper bag to walmart soley to steal bread and meat because there is no food in your house? There is poverty in America. We are a first world nation. No child should go hungry.

    Under the SNAP program, only food can be bought with food stamps. DBT cards cannot be used in ATM machines. ATM machines don't take EBT cards. In short, there is no such thing as a welfare-ready ATM machine, which means that this article is nothing but propaganda, designed to stir up hatred.

    But is there abuse of welfare? I am sure there is, and there is a good fix for that too. It's called jail. Those who abuse welfare should pay the penalty. Those who assist in someone abusing welfare should also go to jail.

    Great post!

    It's amazing to me how some are so reactionary in their thinking and just don't see the big picture. Just because I tend to lean left does not mean I don't get annoyed with people who take advantage of a system that is there to help those in need. I know a few in real life, and they piss the **** out of me.

    I get that, I truly do.

    But I also get that not any program is perfect and there is always going to be waste, greed and corruption. That's just the way anything goes, IMO. However, the benefits from these programs-- such as welfare--completely outweigh all that is wrong. Do you really want to see the gap between the rich and the poor grow even more? Do you really have any idea what problems that can occur if this were to happen? Think about it, folks. Also, those with the bright idea of forcing people to work, it just does not work ('scuse the play on words). Trust me, it was tried here in my province in the early 90s and was a complete and dismal failure. It basically achieved nothing and costed the tax payer even more than before the reform.

    Tim-
    Nice deflection for the question. Why did MMC decide the ministers needed to be defined by race? I'd opine a lot of lighter shade of pale ministers sure dress with a lot of flash for being 'simple men of Gawd'.

    From MMC it is nothing new, I too am surprised Risky made mention of it. Also surprised MMC didn't use a better code, like urban or something.

    I listed ONE example. At no point did I say "all welfare recipients should pick fruit". I'm sure there are other menial chores often left to the wayside. That just happens to be a job more relevant to an area of the country I currently live in. In a city, it could be more unsavory custodial work, discounted construction, basic gopher work, etc.

    Of course, nice of you to play the race card there, boy. Aint's nobody callin yous a Uncle Tom, huh?
