    (You twist and dodge like a champ. I quoted your OP where you claim they sell food cards for TWICE face value. I said down in Oklahoma the going rate is fiddy cent on the dollah which you now admit is much closer to the truth than your first assertion.)

    (You race bait because of all the ways to describe the ministers you chose their race. It would have to be a very limited 'sting' to only net one race/ethnic group doing wrong. Do you have a link?)

    I wouldn't care what color they were.....as long as they aren't gaming the system and taking advantage of someone else. Or did that point escape your assumptions too?

    So save you racebaiting BS for where it belongs.

    What did you have trouble understanding this? Still couldn't get past that point due to your judgments you like to throw out on people? "What'.....did your paint brush decide that it had some more hair to try and fling with?

    I am not angry over the issue nor have I ever really been except for those who keep getting taken advantage of.....kinda leaves your assuming theory, where it belongs. In your very own head.
    You are a very bigoted person, you do get all up in arms and use your biase to guide your words. retreat from them now- like you did the double face value food cards- but you leave the trail out there and it is easy to follow.

    Welfare recipients, clearly, should join monasteries, as do the fat thieves who threw them out of work. Or don't they?

    Both of which take credit cards, I'm sure. Neither of which require using ATMs in strip clubs.
    While this is good in theory. It doesn't work in practice. At best, people find ways around the rules. At worst, these rules promote paternalism and dependence

    And it is ironic the biggest welfare recipients dont get any media time... the big corporations like Newscorp, Exxon and so on, who all receive hundreds of billions in welfare each year.
    You forgot to mention StarKist Tuna, which is the basis for the wealth enjoyed by Nancy Pelosi. They even got millions from the "fiscal cliff" tax increase.

    If your goal is to convince us that there's no reason for partisan favor of the military then it makes all the difference in the world. If my political funds come from military contractors, or my portfolio is full of their stock, then of course I wouldn't vote against reducing or curtailing their government funds.

    Also, knowing three languages, and working on five is a major advantage many people in your predicament do not have. As far as not being social, well there are therapies that can help with that in addition to medication. I would suggest either you look for work in translation, whether teaching English as a second language, or teaching in general, or as Terun suggests, start a business. Your husband can then go back to school, get his GED, and begin his life, doing what HE wants. What skills does he posses? Can he start a business? You mentioned school loan default, so I assume you have zero credit? If that's the case, then you've got no chance at acquiring a loan from a bank, but there are other ways to get capital if your ideas are business sound. If your ideas are good, people will lend you money to get going, no matter your financial history. Seems to me that you write a lot, have you thought about becomming an author of childrens books? How about writing manuels. point is that, we all have our little disadvantages, ailments, and obstructions, but what I have found to be universally true is that, most of the time, our obstacles are mostly self defeating, and self promoting. That's a nice way of saying that we are feeling sorry for ourselves and this is perpetuating our disadvantaged existence.


    The system is set up to help families like yours, and I don't see it changing anytime soon, but if you're waiting around for something to happen, I have news for you. It rarely happens, and ONLY you and your husband can do anything about it. Good luck!

    The hilarious issue here is the welfare scum in America and we all know who they are, scream to the high heavens when their "right" to welfare money is challenged and or cut off. Lottery tickets, striipers, cigarettes and cheap liquor is what they have lived on for the past one hundred years and it seems to be unstoppable.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Re: Welfare Recipients Take out Cash at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores and X-rated Shops.

    This is nothing new, it’s just being brought out in the open, when I lived in FL. I used to be a good dog track fan, and quickly learned that the best times to go to the track was the first week or so of the month, when welfare checks were received. It was those days that held the biggest betting pools, that fact, was even confirmed by the tellers at the tracks. I think it would be a safe bet to assume the same thing would hold true at horse tracks or even in cities that have casinos
