Food (stamps) For Thought

People need to stop judging others. This supposed massive welfare fraud isn’t real. It’s smoke and mirrors, people. What about corporate welfare? And fraudulent, excessive defense spending? Get your heads out of the sand.

Today’s rant brought to you by this post, which is great.
And this post which is shit… wait… never mind… I’m not even going to link to it and give them views. And get past my rant because I suggest a solution at the end.

I got my first job at 14. I joined the Army after High School. I worked two jobs for a while in College (UPS and X-ray tech). I worked. Sales on the side. I worked. Any gig I could get. Photography, retail, etc. And then life with a vaccine injured child got to be too much and now I can’t work. So we get food stamps. And I refuse to feed my child shit just because of it. I buy organic. I buy grassfed meats. It’s a supplemental program anyway. Food stamps are not supposed to buy everything, so consider the extra money we throw in to be covering the “luxury” markup that makes you unable to sleep at night.

And  I am tired of that clown at Natural News bitching about people who buy junk with food stamps and then bitching about people who buy omega 3 rich seafood with food stamps. What does HE find suitable to feed MY family?

Rice, beans and cheese? Guess what asshat, we’re paleo/keto. Gluten, soy, dairy free. etc. We can’t eat that shit. Legumes are a no go. Starches make me sick. The majority of people on foodstamps are the eldery and the disabled and are white… so please Mr. “Health Ranger” –just shut the fuck up. Go back to fighting the real fights in the world.

I coupon –it means that a lot of the time I pay NOTHING for our daily needs like toilet paper, pet supplies, soaps, etc. And I often MAKE a little MONEY couponing. So I have no moral issue with throwing a “luxury” food in my cart on occasion. When my barely verbal vaccine injured son asks for some shrimp or a steak, if I can swing it that week in the budget, you bet your ass I’m buying it.

Let’s make food stamps a point system to give incentives to buy healthier foods. Instead of the avg person getting $29 a week, they get 29 “points”
1. Soda, chips, cookies, cakes, candy, total shit food: 2 points per dollar. This inflates the cost of that crap and makes people less likely to spend on it.
2. Prepackaged foods: 1.5 points –example mac and cheese, hotpockets (still, total shit food, IMO).
3. Meats, cheese, dairy, rice, beans, flours, sugar, oil (baking ingredients): 1 point.
4 Veggies, Fruit: 0.5 points

Would that be so hard?

Have you accepted Tsu as your personal social media platform?

You can join Tsu here.
I will keep this short. I promise. Because I want you to read it all. Because I want you to go sign up today, and leave Facebook behind. Facebook is an abusive boyfriend. Time to walk.

They own your content. You make them money just by posting a photo of your dog. You don’t have to pay for anything, you don’t have to purchase in-game extras… just being there, you are earning for them.

You are a consumer and a consumer votes with their action and inaction. When you continue to use Facebook you are telling them that it is OK by you for them to claim ownership of your content. You are telling Facebook that you will gladly earn them money, while allowing them to take ownership of your content. You are condoning the way they sell your information. Basically you are saying to them, “Nah, not a fan of lube…”

They also tell you what you can see. They delete stories about vaccine choice. They shut down pages without investigating if it’s a real issue or just a troll attack. They delete photos of moms breastfeeding, but do not give two shits about bikini shots… And they play games with page owners for reach because their billions aren’t enough.

Every page owner on Facebook knows the games that you have to play to get your posts out there, to be seen. The easiest way to do that is to PAY them to do it. Or, like I do, I beg my friends on my personal profile to go like and share the crap out of my page. Even when someone chooses to follow me, FB makes it hard for them to see my posts. That is just ONE thing I love about Tsu. On Tsu, that is not the case. If you follow me there, you WILL get my posts in your feed. Period.

You’ve turned the creators of FB into billionaires. What have they given you?

Watch the video at the bottom of this post, it’s short. Really think about it. And come join me on tsu. www.tsu.co/janeknowitall
And then share your page with your friends and get them to come over, too.

It’s like facebook –only much much better… AND…. They give 90% of the ad revenue back to YOU the community of users making the network grow. You are using social media anyway, might as well get paid for it.  Share this blog with your friends, too, because Facebook is blocking posts from and about Tsu –go figure.

There is a ton more I can tell you –but get over there, say Hi, let me know you’re there and I’ll get you started. It’s simple.

On Haters.

Live your mother fucking life.
