A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – A small minded bigot’s response to people on food stamps

poor1

I just couldn’t pass this response up.

I made a post about the House planning on cutting $40 Billion form the SNAP Program and after this guy responded with we should only give away healthy food – I explained that that that would cost more then the current system.

Imagine having so much hate and ignorance about people on food stamps.

People like children, retired elderly, working poor, disabled Veterans…..

This is his response to that…….

“One shouldn’t profile, but it is easy at the grocery checkout. The obese female with a cart full of junkfood will probably whip out her snap card to pay for it. So will the 18 year old with three kids. Then as you are loading your groceries into your 20 year old car, you see them driving off in a newer car with $2k rims”.

“It’s nice of you to care about the starving. You and people like you should chip in and do something about it. I don’t like having my money stolen by government force to also chip in. I don’t want to subsidize churches or non-profits who feed the poor, by giving them tax exemptions, which means I have to make up those taxes. People who want to help should do it with their own funds, or get those they help to chip in with labor, etc”.

“As far as kids getting food stamp benefits, they likely wouldn’t need help if we did away with the welfare state. Their mothers keep pumping out kids because it has become profitable, from snap, section 8, to outright cash from earned income credits. I say let the laws of Darwin work. Mothers who can’t afford kids will wait to have them until they can. They will better their lives so they can them, and if they already have kids, will make sure their kids don’t end up the same. Instead, we create generation after generation of poverty because we enable them… Somebody really poor and hungy won’t waste their own money on junkfood, as it is usually 7 ounces for $5, when that could get you five punds of chicken that can feed you for a week. Because you didn’t buy those chips, you have a little left for the gas. We already limit what you can buy with snap. Not letting you buy junkfood only takes a few strokes on the keyboard. I bet if we audited the program, you too would agree most of the stuff being bought is irresponsible, and the truely starving would never buy it”.

“As for distribution, government used to hand out government food. So they already dealt with the issues you discussed. When they were handing out food, the participation rate was a fraction of today. It was still a handout to farmers, but not the multi-billion one of today…. A better way would be to just make a list of items and have each store come up with a basket including those. Or have a list that the recipient has to pick out their own from the shelves. But you limit it to healthy things like “4 16oz cans of kidney beans”, “up to 5 pounds of frozen vegetables, store brand”. We can set limits on foods, brands, sizes, etc. When I say healthy, it doesn’t mean we let the hungry go to Whole Foods and buy organic berries at $12 a pound…. Even after limiting food to healthy stuff, it still has value which those who won’t eat it can instead sell it, and use that money to buy the junkfood they crave. We could increase punishments, or even have recipients have to bring back the upc barcodes from the last items we gave them…”
