    I know. I was on welfare. This is why the government doesn't "give you food" because that would create a storm of lawsuits. Hence is why they create the Electronic Benefit Transfer which allows families the limited freedom to supply themselves with the necessary foods. Some families are allergic to fruits and vegetables. Myself I'm allergic to bananas for some reason the result are hives within my mouth and extreme itchiness.

    I've been down this debate before. I'm not forced to do anything. I know plenty of folks who went homeless because they didn't want any social and financial obligations

    EBT is a much different program than SNAP which is the food assistance program. You should know that...

    If you're allergic to everything, what are you going to buy with the card?

    Too many scams associated with other forms of welfare. People got by fine before welfare, didn't they?

    LOL, you're a hoot. If you choose to support yourself and your family through earning income, you most certainly are forced to pay taxes used to provide living assistance to others...

    And if you're really grateful of the "moral actions" we're taking by providing for the poor through welfare, you should respect the individual amount each of us are forced to give through our taxes instead of downplaying it.
    Nobody is forced. Nobody forces you to own a private or corporate business or force you to hold a minimum wage job.

    And should you choose not to do either, is anyone else obligated to provide for your perceived needs?

    Yeah well I am not too familiar with SNAP since I was laid off I only qualified for EBT. I didn't even qualify for GR since I was too honest in my application.

    I would like to think as a whole, we are obligated to one another to have a functioning society. The function of society depends on each member doing their part to keep the machine called America, functioning. You cannot have a functioning society if a portion of the population isn't being productive or is less productive. We ought to have a system to where we can alleviate the issues effecting people whether its financial or social.

    SNAP is what food stamps are now referred to, and you would have qualified for that program before EBT, which is the new name for welfare cash payments...
