When I was working next to the welfare office, their secretary told them what they could do with her job. She had worked there for years and finally got fed up with all their clients taking home more freebies than what was in her paycheck.

Monday, after doing the grocery shopping, I posted here that the entire cost of tomorrow’s meal came in at just shy of $35. That included a 21 lb bird, all the sides and a guess at about $5 for seasonings, celery, milk, flour and various incidentals I already had on hand. Nothing, other than the $1/lb turkey was on sale or had a coupon so that was all regular prices. That will feed us all and there will be plenty of leftovers and more for the freezer. IOW, Thanksgiving shouldn’t cost anymore than any other homemade meal and should be less with the birds always at a good price.

Incredible! What propaganda filth this government spreads about food stamps. No point in going to work. Just let all of us working support the voters who vote for more freebies! F this bullshit!
