Halfpintroo,
You forgot the ones who always seem to have beer to go along with the cigarettes
If you can pay for beer and cigarettes you don't need my tax money for food

willowwatch- you are correct. If that was the situation then absolutely that is different.

It's the ones who talk on their iPhones and ALWAYS have a cigarette but have food stamps, state health care and ask for charity for Christmas because they can't afford presents for their kids.

here is a thing to consider, what if they had a good job, bought the i-whatsit and then got canned-laid off-what ever later? They are broke now but they still have that tech they bought and haven't quite gotten to the pawn it all stage yet- they can get assistance

You think it's ok to own expensive "ipoo" when you need government assistance??

If people on government assistance can feed themselves and afford iCrap, then government assistance is too high.

I would like to make an anti-semetic joke right now, but I probably shouldn't.

I'm glad you chose the path of wisdom @Ontario...

When I was in grade school, I remember the welfare kids having newer clothes then me...

True that @HalfPintRoo! When I worked in daycare in the poorest part of town, the welfare kids had new clothes that were dirty, and the working parent kids had old clothes that were clean.
Sad really...

maybe you should put down the computer and go back to your old age home, @OldOllie.

I don't get it. It's somehow impossible to own an iOS device and then find yourself in need of government assistance?

Kindle edition

Paperback

iTunes is just one more method of distribution. No big deal.

The download app ought to alert the welfare office to come and confiscate your all your damned iCrap and sell it on eBay.

@bigfatdynamo

what do you mean trying to establish credit? you stated that you used a credit card to buy comforts and then pay for it then buy more. so do you have bad credit or no credit?

also, no one would judge you for buying things on a credit card as long as you werent also trying to buy things with food stamps at the same time, lol

i work in a town that has a lot of people who abuse the system. i saw one woman use her access card to buy 18, yes 18, dippin dots icecream packs. ive also seen it used to buy filet and lobster, name brand soda, tasteycakes, etc. in PA they can also get cash out of their food stamp account using their access card like an atm. ive seem them buy cigarettes and beer with that money

the reason that people are upset about the use and abuse of foodstamps is because of the reasons above. I dont buy dippin dots icecream because, i have other bills to pay for before i can afford luxuries, so why should i pay for theirs

I qualify for food stamps based on my income. I do not get them. I own two iPod touches (one for me, one for my wife). We use them as our phones (wifi coverage only). We use them for entertainment.

Owning a home is more important than an iPod, or a tv, or a gaming console. I cannot build equity into anything but a home. But because I have a few creature comforts, if I were to receive food stamps I would be one of those who was "abusing" the system. I would spend the money on a home if my credit rating were good enough to get a home loan at a reasonable rate. Instead, I use my credit card to buy items, pay on them and buy more so I can build my credit rating. But I am judged by the middle and upper class for those things I purchased to raise my credit rating! Ours is an economic system that gives to those who don't need it and judges those who try to establish the credit needed to become independent. Ridiculous.

Why should people on low (or zero) income be expected to do without luxury items? This group have no social mobility, no holidays, often are poorly educated and feel marginalized, have less access to healthcare etc etc... do you really think that begrudging them some of the technology you take for granted will help matters?

sorry, @nikkypickles, but you're wrong. it's true that you can use these apps on $700 equipment, but you can also use them on a used kindle fire that costs around $75. moreover, many school systems are "renting" ipads and whatnot to students to use during the year. for free.

I've had government cheese. It is quite good. Comes in a giant Velveeta style box and is made in Wisconsin.

anyone complaining about the truly poor having a better financial situation should read a book I highly recommend. It's called "how to get food stamps, welfare, and other benefits." You would be amazed at what you qualify for. so whoever posted, "people on food stamps eat better than i do" I strongly suggest looking into government assistance. There's no shame in it

completely.

And, Madest, the welfare kids even had better cheese then me. The welfare cheese was a huge brick of white Land of Lakes cheese in a cardboard container (which made great baseball card or garbage pail kids cards containers- therefore giving them better boxes then me for baseball cards too!!)

When I was in grade school, I remember the welfare kids having newer clothes then me, brand new shoes that I almost never got, new school supplies I never had and free school lunches.

I agree with the person who posted:

"people on food stamps eat better then I do"

Just like, the people with no income have better health insurance then I do.

They are, essentially, in a better finical situation then I am.

When I was in grade school, I remember the welfare kids having newer clothes then me, brand new shoes that I almost never got, new school supplies I never had and free school lunches.

I'm not putting down the need for these programs, but it needs to be redone.
