Yeah, years ago Michigan used to not be any worse than a lot of other states but they have really fallen to the wayside. Their debt is way up there, they are losing jobs hand over fist, and unemployment is already the second highest in the US. I'm not sure how the state can keep raising corporate taxes and expect any businesses to settle there. My old boss in the military was from Michigan and when he was retiring he wasn't even sure if he would go back. He loved the state but didn't know if there would be a future there. He ended up staying in North Dakota which, as much as I hate North Dakota, seemed to be the smart move.

That's what sucks. Some people really do need it and it's the people who abuse it that give everyone a bad name.

Who knows how many of these stickers they have sold? Maybe close to none. I wanted to commend you elsewhere on plowing the snow from the alley next door...really nice of you to do that man!!! and you got a thank you Xmas card for doing that. If the U.S.A. or Canada had populations numbering a few thousand then all welfare recipients could be monitored closely...is hardly the case though. Surely besides helping 3rd world Hell holes..we do take care of our poor. Whether straight or a drug addict..they are a product of something gone wrong with their upbringing, education (or lack there of), etc. With case loads numbering in the millions it is a little too simplistic to paint them all with the same brush. The life of something like a Heroin addict is hardly a gravy train at the public's expense...that plus Meth, Coke, Crack,etc. are terrible drugs that nobody should ever try..the addiction allegedly so powerful it is done the 1st time tried. Proper education at a young age can prevent this....unfortunately that probably means showing grade 5 or 6 students videos of people who have been addicted to these things for a few years..show them before they are potentially introduced to such and they will know that they don't want to end up like that. But life threatening addictions go beyond that..gambling, overeating, sugar (diabetes), are also things the young should be taught about. All possibilities could make for a book. And now we have the worst recession since the great depression..not good for many reasons. You would think properly brought up children would go on a straight path..but there are exceptions to that as well. Remember the 2 brothers years ago who were supposedly brought up well in a wealthy home...and plotted the murder of their own parents...they did so..the plan being to have it all..luckily the truth came out. Regardless..world-wide the vast majority of people are OK but may well suffer from time to time by local economic issues which are often well beyond their control.

^^^thanks, I just get a little fired up when it comes to these things, I have seen so much abuse of the system, welfare fruad, parents putting themselves first before their kids, etc. We are in an economically depressed town, there is seriously nothing here, crime is starting to rise, people getting shot just down the street from me. So much to say and so little time to say it.

I know that there are alot of deserving and responsible people out there who do get assistance, myself incuded. It just makes me sick to see people abusing it. And there is nothing you or I can do about it.

I actually agree with people misusing their EBT cards. I work at a privately owned Gas Station here in FL and you would be surprised at the amount of people who want to buy beer.smokes. and of course the mini dutch with them. But being privately owned we don't take them.

i work at a grocery store and there are a lot of people with foodstamps around here. most of them are just ordinary people buying ordinary groceries. no big deal, but then there are some people who buy some stuff with ebt and come back the same day to return. then they get mad at us because we wont give them a cash refund. stupid people actually cuss us out because we prevented them from cheating the system. i just want to bust them in the face

This is where everyone fucks up in saying this..This is a very popular complaint/suggestion we all hear but we all know that the Gov will screw this up. Ok say this passes but they will screw it up by only testing when a new applicant applies for Stamps. WRONG how about testing every month. for every check. I would feel better about my tax dollars being wasted on that instead of helping build 3rd would countries.
