Just take the bus to the nearest inner-city welfare office like everyone else.
In New York City of the 1930s and 40s there was no "welfare." Public assistance was administered by the Home Relief agency which maintained store-front branch offices in low-income neighborhoods. People who needed assistance would visit one of those offices where they were interviewed and assigned to an Investigator who would verify and evaluate their needs and eligibility. (Citizens only.)
If an individual had a rent problem it would be paid directly to the landlord. Medicines were paid for with a special Home Relief voucher that pharmacies were required to accept. These Home Relief store-front branches maintained a large stock of groceries and people in need of food were issued boxes and bags of nutritional items and baby foods.
My aunt worked for that agency. Her title was "Counselor" but her job was going around to the various branches and teaching cooking classes to food parcel recipients. The parcels contained mainly pasta, oatmeal, beans, canned and powdered sauces, etc. Each approved family was issued one "meat voucher" per week which local butchers would honor for a specified amount.
The Home Relief Investigator's duties included helping recipients to find jobs.
Compare that system with today's "welfare" system and it's obvious why public assistance rolls are so bloated. If one manages to qualify for assistance a monthly check arrives in the mail and one rarely sees an investigator. Food Stamps and other benefits are extras.
I live 60 miles from a bus...
Whatever 'god' you believe in. Of course, I believe there is only one G-d, the G-d of the Bible, which will have you stand before the great white throne judgement, and you will have to give an account of how you lived your life, just like I will.
But if you believe something else, like the 'god' of the big bang, or whatever fruity beliefs there are out there..... ok... then you answer to your 'god'.
But it's not up to me to determine your fate regardless of 'which god'. I'm not G-d dude. What do you expect me to say? Are you asking what the Bible says? I can tell you what the book says, if you want to know.
Well at least the Christians have their God that is Jeebus, The Jews, not so much...You seem to think that some how being judged is a scary event to make people worry about nothing....yet your God can't destroy Satan, like he did the humans at one time....
Thank god for ignore.
Being judged is the scary event I'm worried about. That's why I believe in Jesus.
Can't destroy Satan? Just because I haven't played the flute yet, doesn't mean I am incapable of it. Revelations says that Satan's time is coming in the future.
Pagans have such odd views of Christianity.
I devoutly hope I'm the first to say, "So what?"
Absurd..... Just ban ebt cards period.
