My dear, darling Poet.

1) That was my being as courteous as I could possibly have been in the moment.

2) Endlessly lecturing people and berating them is not anywhere near a decent way to accomplish anything you are lecturing to want.

3) That's fine, darling.

It also helps that you have been attacking people left and right from the very beginning of this, so that high horse might need a break. Why don't ya climb on down.

FuryAphrodisia, that is enough. If you cannot be civil, please refrain from posting in this thread.

But... I have been civil. More so than I have been afforded.

So, yes, it technically is possible for one person to eat for $100 a month. But it's not always something that can actually happen.

Yeah. I can't see myself actually wanting to live on that even if it is possible. But I guess necessity gets us to do things we never thought we could. Just glad I don't have to do it.

Assuming everyone is bad because a few are is never a good state of mind to have. That's how we have distrust in police, that's one of many reasons for racism, and bigotry, and so on and so forth. It's precisely why, in fact, people assume everyone else on SNAP is bad. Perpetrating the very thought process others are using against you against others in the same or similar situations as you seems kind of self-defeating, no? Hatred should not be the first response, regardless of past experiences and what not.

This is a very good point. There are, unfortunately, an extremely small minority of professional scroungers who aren’t bothered by the stigma against welfare claimants and will always try and take advantage of the system - but by their nature they’ll almost always find a new loophole when the law changes, so letting them dictate your policies is a bad idea that usually only screws over a lot of the (much more numerous) “honest” claimants.

There are also always going to be a few people who do ridiculous things like spend all of their food stamps on ice cream (and these will be the ones that make the news, because they’re so ridiculous), and you could probably talk at length about how habits, lack of time and the cost of processed vs “healthy” food impacts people’s diets, but at the end of the day I don’t think it’s actually practical (or moral) to enforce what sort of food people are able to buy.
