Well I went ahead and applied for EBT a 2 weeks ago. Last week I received a letter telling me that my application is in process.

I don't expect to get any assistance, but I can no longer afford to feed my family every day. I'm not down on my luck, I'm a middle class working guy (I put in 60 to 80 hours of work a week with 2 jobs) that just no longer keep food on the table due to the cost of fuel, food and taxes and bills as in medical and so on. So I applied for EBT. If I get it, good. If not, its beans and rice again for as long as I can provide.  

My wife believes I should buy more ammo and guns, but I have not been able to since Dec of 12. I still go shoot, but I'm starting to get low on ammo. And a Hunting license in Komifornia is something I cannot afford (you do not want to know how much they charge in this Communist State). If not I'd go out and get me some Boars.  

So Fuck you BHO for making it so damn hard to raise a family in the 21st century You Cock Sucker. I wish nothing but Death and Disease upon you, You Prick Fuck.

Let's see if they give Republicans any kind of Assistance. If not, this country should burn. (Sorry for the partial rant, I'm just pissed that I work so hard and have so little to provide my family with).

If you can afford beans, rice and ammo why do you feel you need EBT?

if i had an EBT, it would be Lobster every other day

That's what it's there for. At least you are working.  

That being said, can the wife not work?

Move out of that state and you will live happily ever after.

Isn't there anything you can cut back on?

I was thinking about applying also.  Not that I want or need it, but to see if the system is F-ed up enough to give it to me.

Link Posted: 8/28/2013 3:08:34 PM EDT
Sorry,I'm not falling for it.
Link Posted: 8/28/2013 3:08:35 PM EDT
Curious to see where this goes
Link Posted: 8/28/2013 3:08:58 PM EDT
I'll try not to jump to conclusions but I'd bet there are at least a dozen moves you can make before jumping into the taxpayers wallet.

Sorry, I jumped.

Dude go for it.

Fuck all these haters that are gonna get on here slamming you.

You work your ass off and pay taxes.  Most people receiving entitlement benefits don't do shit to earn them.

If we were smart,  we would all get on them.... Or at least try.  We should be applying for every single benefit we can possibly get.

Overload this Fucking system,  clog the system up until it explodes.

We need to start going ape shit and protesting every welfare office,  food stamp office,  unemployment office.  Jam up the system so bad it can't function.

With those work hours I don't see why you need an EBT. How many kids and family members in total do you support? EBT is not an option for me ever.
Link Posted: 8/28/2013 3:10:52 PM EDT
Sounds like you need Dave Ramsey.

If you cannot afford food why would your wife want you to buy guns and ammo?

Does your wife work? What can she do to bring in extra income?

What kinds of work are you doing?

I looked up hunting License in CA, $45.. Seems about the going rate. In NH I pay $45 for Hunting/Fishing Combo, $28 for two extra doe tags, $16 dollar turkey tag, $16 muzzleloader permit, $13 Salt Water permit.

What do you do or how much do you make? Middle class and can't afford food, me thinks you will not qualify by state of Ca standards.

45 bucks for the licence, but then its 21 more for a tag. Only so many areas to hunt in the LA area, where you have to pay $500 bucks just to step onto the land

Oh you spoiled it! OP wasn't gonna let that drop until page two.

El page-o uno.

Link Posted: 8/28/2013 3:24:08 PM EDT
Middle class?  I bet you earn too much to qualify.  They dont give a shit what your bills are.

My priorities are:
1 House
2 Food
3 Car/fuel
4 Utilities
5 (Student loans, medical bills)
6 guns and ammo

My families gonna eat before I pay a medical bill.
Link Posted: 8/28/2013 3:24:09 PM EDT

60 to 80 hours a week, and you can't afford to live? How many kids, how much per hour?

These are the things many will want to know.

I would if I wasn't upside down on it. I've tried to short sell it for the past 3 years and no takers, not even the banks want it.

That sounds good in theory. In practice you become attracted to the dark side and like a drug user eventually an addict.
