Look into the new SNAP guidelines if you use it, the clown fascist is taking away states' abilities to provide exemptions from the work requirement for SNAP. it is estimated ~700,000 will lose their SNAP eligibility so that 'they can be more dignified' or some stupid shit

It probably wont pass cuz they tried to do it before and the farm bill got shot down by a wide margin. So he'll just have to use concentration camps like the fascist before him... oh wait.

I will personally attest to this.

I was told I cant apply for SNAP for 3 years because I recieved SNAP for 3 months in 2019 without complying with the work requirements.

Essentially they have taken away the exemptions from almost every area that allowed to not have to comply with the work requirements if you are homeless, or receiving unemployment benefits.

It's super fucked up. It is essentially going to dramatically increase the number of people that experience malnutrition and cant feed themselves, or their families.

There is nothing about this policy that will benefit the people on this country in any way. It Is another way conservative politicians are trying to pay less in corporate taxes. Fuck Trump, he is a fucking fascist.

@texastraveler naw man, I'm not even trying to get stamps again until this political climate changes. But ya, it's pretty much trying to reduce the government budget (to fuck the poor, not the millitary) to stop the rich from being taxed. Pretty obvious, same thing they have been trying to do since regan.

I think more than taxes or malice this might be about scoring political points with the subset of the population who believe that they exist in a meritocracy and that poor people are just bad people, so fucking them over is good.

Lot of it varies by state anyways. I've never used it so I'm not 100% how federal guidelines impact state policy.

They over paid me on SNAP, I had to pay back $103.70, what a crock! I bet someone who comes into this country illegally doesn't have to pay it back! I rather panhandle or go to the food pantry for extra food when I need it.
Two years ago, I was getting $6.00 a month from SNAP! I gave up on SNAP.
Yes, I paid back the $103.70 to keep the monkey off my back!

Might wanna check your inherited illegal immigration privilege, homeboy. You don't strike me as the type to speak diné bizaad, maiduan, siouan-catawban, etc. I would imagine just like most of the rest of us here, your ancestors immigrated here illegally, raped and murdered indigenous peoples, stole their land, claimed it as their own and started shitting out a bunch of entitled kids who conveniently pretend like that isn't how it all went down. I just don't think it's very cool to point the finger at illegal immigrants if you don't look something like these muthafuckin OG's.

It causes inflation that's the reality of it. It's A lot harder to get a job not to mention a good paying job because the taxes are so high on hiring employees. Also it feeds the riches pocket because that's how they funnel money to the businesses they want it to go to. That's just my take. I def don't think it's totally bad but here in CA it's definitely enforced you get food stamps while your basically denied a job. And look at the homeless problem because of it. They don't want to pay them out in wages effectively privatizing the economy.

Yet again. For the Trump supporters in the back to hear, again. Illegal immigrants cant fet food stamps. You are required to have a SSN to get SNAP, which you do not get unless you are a citizen.

Sorry dude, but that's a crock of bullshot. And @roughdraft that's not an alternative point of view. That is a classic example of 'alt-facts'

Which have no basis in fact what so ever.

Conservatives bitch and moan about how social services are making them and their businesses pay exorbanant amounts in taxes.

Look at the fucking millitary budget. Seriously. No one says shut about that when they rework tax structure to funnel more of our taxes into the millitary.

Look at the fucking reganomics that cut the corporate tax rate by double digits. And then you wonder why individuals pay more in taxes. Blame it on food stamps and unemployment benefits.

Naw. Fuck thaat. Dont buy into that shit. That is exactly what the tax-dodging, draft-dodging, evil bastard in the white house wants you to think.

Gonna have to soldier up cause the war on the poor is here. A spoiled rich brat who never worked a day in his life and has no idea what it's like to struggle will have no sympathy for anybody but himself and his billionaire friends. He's already going after the homeless. In Vegas, they're locking them up in cages as we speak. Half the country still supports this POS so I'm lost for words. Good luck, everybody!

Actually California does give a lot illegal immigrants fs it's really up to the individual municipality to give those benefits and frankly I don't really care if they do it's fine with me as long as they're concerned with living a good life and not just juicing the system.
I think social benefits should be used as a hand up and not a hand out.

Fuck yeah, Tucson. Hello, 18 rack of pabst.
Barreling through the Arizona desert on an intermodal freight train, eating peanut butter with a fork. The only thing that could improve this situation would be chunky peanut butter. Other than that I have no complaints and life's pretty good.
Lost on a beach somewhere South of Tampa maybe I don't know.
Okay so imagine a band comprised of a snail, a dragon, a doggo, and a ratto called Crackhouse Crevice. You can catch the free show on an eastbound IM from Yuma.
@dumpsternavel will be making snacks with some tuna from a pouch and the crumbs of a 10 piece chicken nugget bag.
Be there or be square.
Yeah not being on the road right now is kind of a bummer, but actually having the space for a kit again is really getting that serotonin goin'

Holy shit I missed playing drums
Gat dammit Yuma, and yer sparse rideables!!
Still broke as a joke in Morocco, but got a job as a director of a school, so hopefully that real adult money will start rollin in soon. There's a rainbow gathering in the desert at the end of next month. I want to go, but I need to start working and this school opens next month.

Found a good home for the beautiful cat and the boyfriend was not so nice, so it's another fresh start for me.

Out here tryin to keep it real

Best of luck and happy travels
