Faith Forum would be a good name for a porn star, if only so the southern baptists would have a built-in excuse when their wives check the browser history on the eMachine.

Technically, prayers aren't doing anything. Especially when people just say the word yet actually deliver no prayer. At that point, it literally is thoughts. What those thoughts are is just left to the imagination.

No. This is where the positive x axis and negative asic are doing their own thing. Which become things because nothing now becomes something about doing nothing. Any mathematicians that can show the work?

Obviously because food is a luxury and if you can't afford the tax on it then you shouldn't be eating it.

I don't know the reasoning. But as a kid growing up, my parents drove the 20 odd miles to Pensacola to buy food, because it was cheaper to feed a family of 6, even with the cost of travel.

I left because there was very little work and low wages. Florida had jobs and better pay. The lack of state income tax and no food tax was another selling point for a young and poor person.

It's messed up when Florida is a better choice, but here we are

The downside is, what with the points you made and the awesome beach opportunities, Florida tends to attract all the crazies from everywhere else to be permanent residents. In Alabama, all our crazies are home-grown.

Which may not be a good thing, now that I think it through.

Florida is the 2nd chance state. Everybody comes here to start over. Florida imports a good percentage of crazy, but lemme tell ya, the homegrown crazy is just as Derpy as Alabama crazy.

If Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner were right in Freakanomics, look no further than about 16-20 years ago and see what Alabama did to discourage abortion.  Nothing like unwanted, resented children to raise your crime rates.

Sadly, when watching the "terrorist" episod of Roseanne, I winced when she stated how prepared chicken was a poor luxury. Is our country really that farked up?

I have never needed EBT. Is prepared food really off the table for those that need it? Are we really that ducked up as a nation that prepared food is off limits to poorer citizens? What is wrong with America?

Just to top this point off. It seems that more prepared chicken at a local grocery goes to waste if we don't allow those that have less means to buy it. Especially when roasting a whole chicken doesn't cost much expect with time. Poorer kids need food now not in the hour or so it costs to roast a chicken.

Why do we care so little for children? They are farking innocent. Why does any one person want them to starve or have to wait until their parent working a job come home to roast a chicken, if they're luck to have an oven capable.

fark all of that. Why do we allow our children to starve? If not starve, be hungry? We can be this pathetic...

Where I'm from they just deposit a lump sum of money into your account every month, if you can manage to live off of vodka and cigarettes until the next month then you'll get that lump sum deposited into your account again. They don't come up with these stupid costly schemes to limit what or where you can buy.

Hehe.  My apartment has no oven.  I don't drive, can't afford it.  This computer is from a dumpster, but I have an engineering degree, so I make it work.  The last meal I had was on a day that started with at T, but wasn't a Thursday.

You mean like how they have been going down for brown people and immigrants, but have been holding steady and going up for whites?

Which doesn't mean that whites are dangerous people, however, crimes just don't get reported as often out in the woods, and you are much less likely to get in a fight with your neighbor when his house is several hundred yards or more away from your home, but as that becomes a less common mode of living for poor working class whites...

Everyone needs food, so it's totally fair.  Everyone has skin in the game.  Also we don't want to discourage job growth by overburdening our state's job creators, but we need revenue from somewhere.

Kansas taxes food. Its the whole lower taxes on rich people and make it a "fair" tax system so that poor people have skin in the game but we can still say that we have low income taxes. It's 10% sales tax on everything.
