If it's a business I deal with, I don't have a problem with it. However, if it is someone looking for my business, it's just another intrusion.

I think there is an assumption that everyone blows their money on this. I'm glad to see that everyone doesn't. Although I'm still shocked at who does. One day I say a woman yelling at a social worker on her smart phone about how here food stamps were late. Interesting.

I love how presumptuous people can be toward SOMEONE ELSE's budget, don't be a "next door shopper". Waste to you is essential to the next person.You're living in the past if you think mobile/text are universally frivolous. Often text is cheaper to use than airtime and a healthy alt to voice(unless driving), especially those who aren't so good at wrapping up convo. Saying text is frivolous is like: "signals on cars are frivolous we can use hand signals!. :B" btw consider that savings from aid allows SOME to afford things that would otherwise be out of reach. Envy for aid recipients is low down and ridiculous. Why be jealous of something any can apply for free? The system is flawed and doesn't always account for real life expense gaps but officially Its your choice to earn what you do. I think ALL should be entitled to a minimum COL worth of groceries. Governments that don't provide for peoples basic needs but impose tax,laws and warfare al

also clipped: the slogan "WELFARE over WARFARE!" For those complaining about government spending on welfare: I did the math and research: the cost of one M1Abrams tank off the production line surpasses the average federal welfare spending cost of feeding a family of 4 four over a four year time period..I should expect that more people in this democracy prefer federal spending on food than spending on war..if not well in that case I have no sympathy for your backwards values.

Since there is a limit on post size, here is the rest of my comment:

If you want to complain about anything, complain about the corporate greed that forces people onto food stamps and other forms of social assistance while the corporations take gov't handouts while paying executives obsence amounts of money. The rich will continue to get richer, while the rest of us get poorer, as long as the "sheep" continue to have attitudes like you.

Please don't make ignorant assumptions about people when you don't have a clue about their circumstances. The phone could have been a gift. There are also cheap prepaid smart phones. I just upgraded to one for free because I had an old 12 yr old phone that was no longer going to be supported. The phone also costs $0/month to operate because I had previously accumulated a large prepaid balance, $10 at a time. In many cases a smart phone is cheaper to operate than a home phone. Not everyone wastes money on expensive cell phone plans when there are plenty of cheap options available. Perhaps she also uses Swagbucks to enjoy a few luxuries in life. Aren't we all entitled to a little something?

Also many of us including myself use our swagbucks for household goods and for gifts for others. So I actually don't use my swagbucks for luxuries. So not I don't someone whom I'm paying for is entitled to the luxuries that so many tax payers don't have. But I'm very happy with this choice and others similar to it as its led to financial stability and although I get nothing but treated badly for being a responsible person, I'm do get to know that morally I can feel got about my choices that I am not a burden to others.

This is exactly the problem. No, if one needs help on the tax payer dollar you are only entitled to the basics. It is sad that we are becoming an entitlement society. As far as I'm concerned it is time to replace the food stamp system with handing out basic inexpensive but healthy food. This would include things such as rice, beans, lentils, potato's, carrots, and other basic inexpensive foods. Housing, but it should be basic and very minimal. Children of the same gender should be expected to share bedrooms.

Also, that IS the way housing works if you go through Section 8 or HUD! Children of same gender get put in the same room. I worked at the Housing Authority for years. And that housing is NOT luxurious by any means, at least not around here where I live! It is about as basic and minimal as you can get!

Hmm... I have a Smartphone that was free when I renewed my 2-year contract, so I paid nothing out of pocket for it, and I have a very stripped-down plan that doesn't cost me much every month. I receive a MINIMAL amount of food stamps because my ex-husband pays me nothing for support for our two kids. I do work - and I report all my income to welfare. I get a whopping $147/month in food stamps for my family of 3. So I'm not entitled to have a Smartphone, huh? Never mind that I actually use that phone in my job, and yes, it is a necessary for my job! I am using the help from welfare as a hand UP not a hand OUT.

And before anyone says "Ohhh, well just make your ex-husband pay support"...trust me, that is coming in the near future, but until he signs the final divorce papers, I'm holding off. He has already dragged it out 2 years just because he can, and has told me if I file support he will not sign the final papers. Here in PA, they don't just automatically grant the divorce after a certain amount of time has passed. I can proceed without his signature, but it will take much longer. Considering he was very abusive to me, I just want to legally sever all ties with him and get my maiden name back ASAP! Then I can file for support - which won't be much considering he lives on $730/month in Disability. But in the meantime, I have a meager amount of food stamps to help me a little bit, and medical for the kids (I pay for mine). I do not receive any kind of cash assistance.

I disagree, nowadays the internet is needed for so many things. The public library is at least 5 miles from my house and I don't have a car, nor is there any means of public transportation where I live. Two of my kids get homework assignments that have to be done over the computer at home. If they dont have access to one at home then they need to stay late at school and use the library. That sounds great other than there is no late bus in the elementary so I would have to drive there to pick them up, but I still have no car. Things that are necessities to one person may not be to the next. Don't forget that some of those people who receive benefits also paid into it with their taxes.

I wish we could get phone and internet that cheaply! The least we could pay for just internet, not even a bundle, is $40 a month. Pricing varies in different areas. the next town over can get internet for $19/month. They are less than 5 miles from us, but we cannot get the same coverage and pricing. We travel a lot for my husband's work, so we do not have a landline. A cell phone is a necessity for him, and while not necessary for me, it does make life and communication a whole lot easier since we don't have another line.

We use prepaid cell phones ($15 a month each for our 2 phones), as we too don't want to be without a phone when we're away from home. I know we all used to do without them, but they're a very convenient thing and sometimes critical in an emergency. We were able to use our cell phone for 3 days after our landline phone was out after Hurricane Irene. The cell phone tower eventually ran out of generator juice and we were without any phone for about 18 hours, but we had one a lot longer than we would have just with landline, in that instance.

I wish I had a pickup truck and agree with the way you are suggesting to use one. The idea that I disagree with are pickup trucks as fashion statements, you know, the trendy kind.

It's because they *have* to spend their money. They can't save it because then their checks get stopped because they have money in the bank. A system that teaches people not to save, but to spend, is not a good system.

I understand that my son because he is a single male cannot get Medicaid assistance, no housing assistance, and is unable to get a job that works with his full time schooling, has to rely on a Pell Grant to pay for his classes and books, then what little is left has to go for living expenses. He gets no extras unless it's from me or his granddad. He has a basic phone with text. He uses the library or the college for internet. He doesn't even have basic cable television.
All people on Medicaid do not abuse the system, but there are many that do.

Illegal immigrants do not qualify for nor receive government aid of any sort. When the government disburses money to individuals, they require SS#, in order to protect the funds from being spent on anything that is not authorized.

I think you just made Wishforfish's point. Rational people know that we can't normally decide what is essential to other peoples every day budget/spending needs..we can try to have a general idea based on human experience and a cost of living standard we ourselves have become familiar with but thats narcissistic and beyond the very basics it would get fuzzy really quick or enter the realm of financial socialist dictatorship. We'd become crabs locking arms in a barrel and socioeconomically stagnant if our neighbors got to dictate our everyday expenses and earnings.

Jewelry does not sell for much money compared to how much one pays for new jewelry. My aunt buys used jewelry at auction. Your regular jewelry from the store in the mall does not qualify for these auctions. The pieces that do are created by jewelry designers or ones whose style has come back into fashion. And old Rollex sells well but I don't know know how much a new one costs so, yes you get a chunk of money back but there might be be investments.

You can, but it costs an arm and a leg, at least where I am, with my age, sex, and marriage status (single). The last time I looked, it would cost at least $600 but more often closer to $1500 a month. That's psychotic. I go to the doctor like once every five years. And no aid programs would help me---they are only available to families or pregnant women in my state. Or illegal immigrants, although I am confused as to how an illegal immigrant goes to a state agency and says "I'm an illegal immigrant, so please give me state health care, and no hassles on the illegal immigrant thing, please."

I'm sorry, but a pickup truck is a waste of money? I've never owned one, nor has anyone in my family, but it would sure be helpful if we did. It would be useful to haul Craigslist purchases/freebies/sales, recycling or garbage or brush to the center, and you can even use the bed to sleep in if you go camping and the ground is wet or lumpy (depending on what kind of camping you're doing, if you're not using a tent). There are a lot of things that even a large car cannot fit, like shelving units, large purchases of paper towels when they're on sale, bicycles (unless you have a rack), a new garbage can, etc. I think a pickup would be incredibly useful, and I don't see how it would be a waste of money at all. I suppose if you bought one brand new, that could be a waste versus buying one used, but that's true of any vehicle.
Also, I consider jewelry an investment, a much better way to spend money than some. At least you can always sell the jewelry

Interesting how just because someone is on assistance they become a target for the judgments of others.

I think all smartphones, manicures, pedicures and excessive jewelry are a waste of money regardless of how much or how little income that person has access to . The list goes on, I could name more things that I think are useless, cable television, HDTV, home theaters , flat screen tv's, BMW's, pickup trucks and SUV's for suburbanites, annual family vacations that require airline travel ...

But I have enough insight to know that this line of thinking does not suit everyone. I do not know their current situation, what their childhoods were like and what condition their self esteem is in, among other things.

And the economy depends on this. The economy would look much different if everyone thought the way I do.

So try to develop more understanding of others regardless of of their income

But similar to the great depression many people now don't save or don't save enough and made choices that ultimately lead them to their fates. For a long time my earnings were limited but I was always careful to save and live very cheaply so I never went under. I too lived in an expensive area, but I choose to have roomates in many cases even though in a lot of cases it was far less than fun living with them (but some were great too). It isn't like someone gets something and it doesn't hurt everyone else. Responsible people then get taxed and lose money.

In fact I feel like in society today people like myself are the victims-punished for being responsible.

Depending on where you live even with the best job health insurance is still too expensive for most people to afford. When my husband was working we had to pay almost $1000 a month for the two of us for health insurance and we still had a huge deductible.
My husband has since lost his job but he still has the smart phone he purchased prior- perhaps there are many families out there like that?
Similar to in the great depression when there would be people in expensive suits in the soup lines because that is all they had when they lost everything.
That said I know there are families out there who do make it a lifestyle and that isn't right, but I would hope that most are like my husband and I who were trying to do the right thing and lost their jobs through no fault of their own when the companies they work for went out of business or their jobs were out sourced or eliminated.

I have yet to find a cellphone plan anywhere near that inexpensive that includes a smart phone and/or texting, but there may be some out there now. When I was visiting family, my sister gave me one of their older smart phones to use, on their plan, and I did find texting came in handy sometimes,but I just can't justify that expense for us yet. We don't have kids though, so less need to coordinate and keep in touch other than what we can do by a normal phone call.

It really depends... I now have unlimited texting, but had texting disabled for 6 years because when I first got my phone, an acquaintance of mine (and his girlfriend) would forward SMS jokes and try sending pictures from their new camera phones (remember when those weren't a common feature?). Every text I received was a dime, but they both bought texting packages, so they could just burn through them. My new family plan allows for free mobile-to-mobile to other carriers if you purchase unlimited texting.

I have a prepaid Android smartphone (without a plan) that I use for SBTV mobile and games, so if the battery dies when I'm on the road, I'm not DOOMED. I'm one of those weirdos who prefers using phones for talking, my DSLR for photos, and a computer for text-based communicaton.

I have no cellphone and so this is irrelevant, but good to consider for when I do get a phone. . . soon . . .

It should be illegal for businesses to send solicitations by text message to any person who has not explicitly and affirmatively consented to it.

That means saying in no uncertain terms: "I consent to receiving text messages from you," NOT failing to uncheck a box online or signing up for a sweepstakes with a tiny disclaimer.

If the texts are reminders for services (ie appointments, payment dates) then that is fine. Otherwise, I don't want companies texting me promotional crap.

I get a text from my child orthodontist to remind about appointments. I'm fine with it because I was asked first if I wanted that out a call. Other than that I'm not thrilled about texts from businesses.

"I prefer not to be reached this way" isn't nearly strong enough. I absolutely will not ever do business with a company that spams my phone.

its called spam and its more intrucice then lets say junk mail, or span in an email, because now I have to pay for that text message? Its messed up, and should be illegal, which it probably is seeing as Im on the do not call registry

In general I find it really annoying, but sometimes it's helpful - like when I'm getting close to my text messaging limit!
