Lady Indica: I don't give a shiat any more. I just don't. You can argue whatever you like, I'm simply sick and farking tired of any argument on why in one of the richest places on earth we have people going hungry, lacking medical care and basic shelter.

I don't give a fark if lazies take advantage, I don't give a fark if my hard earned bucks go to helping someone lazy and selfish and shiatty. If that's the price of everyone getting enough, I'm farking okay with it.

Anything else is just farking evil. I can't sit by in my warm coat and watch someone else shivering and listen to arguments about why they deserve to be cold. fark that. First let's get them warm, then let's figure out why they're cold and how to keep it fixed. If we have to help some broken people too...good.

And I'm the atheist. I'm the one some of you like to call whore (sex worker, please). If you think my ilk is immoral and I'm saying this...where the farkity fark do you get off? How does anyone who calls themselves a christian not on board with the same thing?

/this is why I'll never be rich
//and I'm FINE with that


Hey, it's not like they're people. If they were people, of course we should help them, but this is America, and in the greatest country that ever was or ever shall be, no one who is a person ever becomes poor.

So helping all the non-people is just a useless drain taking away from real people.

Katie98_KT: Fark_Guy_Rob: I guess it really depends on the individual and what food they are replacing.

Dropping McDonald's, Subway, and the local pizza shops from my lunch menu saves me something like $140 per month.  And I'm replacing it with $20-30 worth of bagged lunches.
In a typical week, the wife and I would pick up fast-food for dinner 1-2 nights a week and then a dinner out at relatively cheap restaurant.  Something like $225 per month ($15 for fast food 1.5x per week, $30 for dinner at a restaurant 1x per week == .$225 per month)

Conservatively, I'm saving $300 per month and I have to pay for 13 dinners for my wife and I.  That's $23 per meal.  In my experience our 'healthier' alternatives cost way, way, way less than that.  A bag of frozen chicken breasts, rice, and something green is awfully cheap.  We'd get whole chickens too and that'd last 3-4 dinners.

For me, healthier was a lot cheaper.
But it tasted like crap and took more effort.

how in the world do you make chicken, rice and fresh veggies taste worse than fast food?


Maybe it's the result of being raised on fast food but I'd take McDonald's over Thanksgiving dinner.  I struggle to eat vegetables, even well prepared ones - but a Wendy's Triple burger is amazing.  I'd take a large pepperoni pizza over an expensive steak too.  I basically have the taste preferences of a fat six year old.

Well, see, it's simple.  If you love America, you have to first give no shiats about the people who are America.  Or something.

Only $1.50, that's all?  Everything is good then.


The average monthly SNAP benefit per person is $133.85, or less than $1.50 per person, per meal.
