    Only one person? Well, thank goodness for that. I do not mean denying KIDS food; I mean finding a better way before we flush more money away. I'd like to see "communal food markets" where only basics can be purchased. Do you support people using cash assistance for booze and acrylic nails Jillian? Because rumor is that's more than one person.

    Nope. We still have that annoying deficit problem to deal with. Do you think using the children's food and clothing money for weed is no biggie?

    Nope again. Being somewhat familiar with the social service system, I have total compassion for hungry kids.But I have zero respect for their able bodied parents who steal their kids' money to go "clubbing" And rumor is that's more than one person.

    Although skeptical, I give Obama credit for recognizing that 500 billion in Medicare fraud could be cut. How about food stamps, Medicaide, SSI? That's something most Americans would back him on.

    Any suggestions in assisting him with this? Or should we just add more people?

    I like that idea. They should only have generics and fresh fruits and vegetables should be subsidized to be less expensive than canned, so that maybe people would be encouraged to eat more healthy.

    Go back to commodities where we actually give them food. Why route the money thru the retail grocery merchants.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Got quite a few out there living off the taxpayers of America. They have no sense of responsibility. Why should they when they don't have to pay for anything and there are no consequences for their irresponsibility??
