Silly Jesus: CSB

I applied for 7 jobs over the course of the previous three months. I interviewed for 5 of them and was offered 4 of them. Get a farking job. You can eat much better with more money. Quit biatching about how little you are able to mooch off of others. If the food is free, you SHOULD'NT be getting a huge amount...maybe that way you'll be encouraged to get a damn job. I'm going to take a second job (part-time) soon solely in order to fully fund my Roth IRA and throw a little in a Money Market account. You can biatch and moan about your rice and beans or you can go out and do something about it. I have no pity for parasites.

Next month the mayor is going to smoke crack and give handies for booze in order to understand how closing of treatment centers hurts addicts.

Later, he's going to burn dinner and have Chuck Lidell beat the shiat out of him so he understand the impact of under funding women's shelters.

And finally, he's going to farking shoot himself so he can understand how the medical insurance system works.

farking retarded. You don't have to 'live in someone's shoes' to figure shiat out.

doloresonthedottedline: You should try dog food, I hear that it's way cheaper. It's also perfectly fit for human consumption, the FDA certifies it as such. Not tasty, but then again that's just a luxury not a necessity.

DROxINxTHExWIND: You need to talk to your realtor, buddy. I just got a nice 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, garlic salt and Season All town house for under $200k. And its only 10 minutes from Metro.


Actually my house is having problems with Brazilian Pepper Trees (invasive species in Florida), my house does indeed come with spices. If you like pink peppercorns.

/Brazilian pepper trees. Sounds like a lot! How many zeros in a Brazilian?
//also comes with Jerusalem Cherries and Angel's Trumpet, if you want to end it all quickly.

Wouldn't it be easier to disable the "I've got mine, fark you" part of politicians' brains?

Politicians would never go along with this. The poor, on the other hand, don't have much choice. What are they going to do, hire lawyers?

There's a lot fewer politicians than poor people, so the initial cost would be lower, and once they stopped being power-hungry sociopaths, they might actually do some good.

Why the either/or? I think it's an equally sensible approach in either case. And while we're at it, can we do something about those kids and their saggy pants? Just a little zip zap here and there and the streets could be so much cleaner.

But I thought President Fart was keeping everyone from getting jobs? What happened to all of that?

You're way off message here.

Gyrfalcon: Madbassist1: gerrymander: Was this another one of those bullshiat "challenges" that doesn't allow the use of salt and spices already present in the household, or the resale of items purchased with food program money, or any of the other things people on government food assistance programs actually do?

How does any of that help the recipient eat better?

False equivalency...strawman distraction...RIGHT WING BLOW HARD DETECTED!!! ALERT!! ALERT!!

No, it just proves those leeches on food stamps really dine on caviar and lobster six nights a week.

Hey, gerrydork, just so you know: Salt and "spices" don't come with the household. YOU STILL HAVE TO BUY THEM.

wee: I used to live on $35/week for food. It sucks, but it can be done. You'll wind up hating beans and rice, though. And you'll also discover every possible way to cheaply cook potatoes. I think the only "dish" I still eat from those days is peas tossed in some hot mustard. Add in a half a bacon strip crumbled up, it's pretty a good snack.

I didn't eat cheese for like three years. And forget things like beef (except for a pot roast once in a while) or potato chips. A $5 deli chicken can really go a long way if you're creative. If you do it right, all you have left over is a pile of boiled bones...

So he lost four pounds in a week on food stamps. Figure the average poor person starts out weighing about 200 pounds. If we give them food stamps for less than a year, the problem of poor people will go away.

I read that as give away handles of booze and wondered where the line formed.

Dear Mayor -
If you're on foodstamps you don't deserve to go out for coffee. You drink your foodbank Folgers at home like everybody else.
