Flooded basement = food vouchers!

This has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have heard in quite some time. This lady has come to the conclusion that since her basement was flooded she is in need of food vouchers from the government. Honestly this person needs to get out of line and let somebody with actual needs in her place. Unless your basement was a food pantry and was the only thing you had left, then you might have a need.

Charline Britt was the 24th person in line at the Marcia P. Coggs public assistance building about 4:30 a.m. today, hoping to receive some help after her basement flooded during the recent rains.

food voucher line

I don’t think anybody in this line is going hungry, do you?

Even thought the line looks well fed, there are some people who actually do need the help. As is the case of this person.

One of those in line was Tanya Parrott, a mother of five boys. She said she had worked for seven years as a certified medical assistant but now is out of work.

“I lost my job in April,” she said. “I’ve been interviewing since then.”

Sadly people really need to start relying on their neighbors, close friends and relatives for help and quit leaning so heavily on the government.

And so goes the cruel and heartless post of the week. ∞

    Regarding the lady in line for food vouchers “just because her basement flooded”.It has long been a traditon, and wise one, to keep food stocks in the basement (read cellar in the part of town that was flooded). Most of these houses(I was flooded out two houses) don’t have anything they could call a lower level. The snide comment as to whether the people in the picture could possibly be hungry is a view held by people who will be shooting the opposite direction when the class wars breakout Good shooting; Better mine! ivarr
