North of SD, but plenty of reservations and Indians none the less.

As a fully employed special education teacher, I earn about enough after rent bills and travel to spend £300 on food for my family of 3 per month, that's £10 between us for a day, or a bit less than £4 each, I need these foodstamps.

jjohns04: In some cases you are correct about your assertion, that people that can work are freeloading.

Others that've worked hard their entire lives have had to fight hard to get the disability they deserve. There doesn`t seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.

Then again, whoever said the government was reasonable?

My best friend's family has also abused the whole foodstamp / disability thing , friend stayed up 5 days straight and was found on the side of the highway babbling weird poo ... was on disability for 5 years . I had a long talk with him and helped persuade him to get a job as a dishwasher at a local restaurant... he`s living a much better life now and understanding first hand how there`s alot of undeserving people out there getting free handouts , and it`s our tax dollars going down the tube.

They need to instill limits on these programs and do some investigating into the actual backgrounds of people before giving them money for nothing.

My cousin lives in Maine and is a bum like my gf`s bro . He`s 30 , been going to college for 10 + years and hsi parents are paying for everything.

If you give someone something for nothing , it doesn`t give them the motivation to better themselves or move forward( most the time with people who abuse the system ) .
