So when the GOP CUT MILITARY SPENDING AS PART OF THE SEQUESTER ..

Which was the largest cut in military spending since GINGRICH made cuts as part of the REAGAN PEACE DIVIDEND.

OH WAIT.. YOU FORGOT ABOUT THAT..

i just found out this lady i give rides to has a 19 year old daughter, who lives with her. they all , and others live in a house belonging to my carpool's mother.

the 19 year old daughter has a live in boyfriend of the same age. he hasn't had any "luck" finding a job. she has driven her daughter and the boy around town to apply and helped them fill out applications. I did explain to her anybody who sees her do this is unlikely to hire them. there are menial jobs available in this area. if they are not getting hired, they're doing something wrong.

I asked about his clothes, he says he only has jeans and t shirts and sneakers. I told her she could take back the gas money she just have me and dress himself decently to apply for work twice over from a goodwill or salvation army store.

then she told me something that made me angry. a 19 year old functional male, he is collecting food stamps.

why am I paying for a young man who should be supporting other people?

I don't want children to go hungry, but for me to pay for this kid and buy him a cell phone and who knows what else does not give me much confidence in government programs.
Thanks from imaginethat and Sabcat

giving a functional 19 year old male in the united states today welfare, food stamps, a free cell phone, etc. , is not helping him or anyone else.

you are making him dependent, a drain on society, and depriving those that seriously need those resources.

You actually expect everyone (here) to believe you're a tax-paying adult.
