Food Stamp Solution

I will preface this by saying 10 years ago I lost my job unexpectedly and reluctantly applied for food stamps. I was given 124.00 a month to feed myself on while trying to find a job and get on my feet again. If not for this benefit I would have been in a bad bad situation. So I am not saying food stamps are bad, I am saying this would cut out a lot of waste and stop crack heads from using our tax dollars to fund their criminal activity....

We should go back to what we used to do.... every saturday at pre determined locations, holders of food stamp benefits were given commodities.... Milk, flour, sugar, bread, cheese, beans, rice and a few canned veggies. This was enough to sustain someone, not have a party with it, but you were given basics. If we stopped giving out debit cards and started this system again, the cost of the program would decrease, people would get what they needed and fraud was almost non existent. And I think you would see lazy people or those that use the system stop using it because it would mean standing in line, and not getting what you want but only what you need.

When the government is teaching people how to cheat and condones it for votes well then is it really the peoples fault that are using the food stamps for the wrong stuff?? A little FOOD for thought..:???:
While the government has blame, the people aren't without it.

I can teach you how to hot-wire a car and encourage you to use that knowledge to steal yourself some fancy new wheels, but you'd know better. If though, you decided to do it anyways you'd deserve the jail time (as would I).

But you do make a great point about the old and frail.
