    The sad reality is that so many people who have never taken food stamps and would never had thought about it, are now seriously considering it just to survive. I know, I’m one of them.

    • This is a time of extraordinary economic hardships and many, many, people are unemployed and can’t find work. Without a safety net, I wonder what many would do, now that extended unemployment benefits have been terminated for so many. I wish the best for you, Irene.

    Alot of people are just plain lazy. Then there are those who are too proud. There are plenty of jobs like fast food, cleaning jobs such as hotel maids, etc. These people refuse these jobs feeling that they are beneath them. I say, Do Anything, until something better comes along. Its far more shameful to waltz along on public assistance.

      Mitt Romney’s yacht is flying the Cayman Island Merchants flag outside of Tampa Bay wining and dining Billionaires while the people that we’re downsized struggle to make a living. Remember your words, this is only the begining, we “aint seen nothin yet”. Oh, by the way, you’ll find that most people in our country, due to their pampered life styles, are not qualified for the rigors, plain hard, back breaking work of a McDonalds or a maid and are to self absorbed to know it. Question, if Jesus was standing on the corner of a busy intersection during rush hour in all His Humble Glory, how many people would scream “get a job loser” as they sped by on the way home to dinner and a warm,safe bed. On the way home from work the other day, i saw a lady sitting on the curb, all alone, crying. So much for ” waltzing along”

    Do not expoit the poor because the are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them. Porverbs 22:22-23
