Sure I certainly spend enough time on here, never been an admin but it sounds like a good cause

yes it sucks. in the last year wife left now divorced HUGE pay cut and I can not even get one according to them I make 20.00 to much to qualify for it. So I can barely feed my kids but she has all that I guess I should go find her and take lessons.

On the internet...all news is good news. All you need to do is wear a Greatlakes4x4.com tshirt while being interviewed and watch the sites stats multiply ten fold!

I've been saying for months, the bridge card program is the most abused in Michigan. I know so many college students, that have them when they don't need them.

but the state decides to cut things like scholarships instead.

my son got that letter.

i hate the worthless pieces of shit that abuse this.

i'v always worked my ass off for everything i have.

there was a time i was out of work and needed this benefit to help feed the three kids. so,
no job for 6 months, no unemployment as i was making cash at the time i lost my job, mortage, bills, and food for three kids me and my wife.
i exausted all other options before i put my pride aside and applied for the "help" when i needed it. i was givin a bridge card with $16 fucking dollars a month on it to feed 5 people.

to all you worthless fucks that abuse this i pray to god you die by fire.

the bitch about it is that you can also get cash assistance on bridge card and when my x wife worked at mijers she would ring people up and they would use the cash portion of the bridge card to buy ciggs and beer and such......it really pisses me off that the people that really need bridge card assistance and cant get it becuse of what ever reason and the ones like you talk of get hundreds of dollars a month in cash and food help that obviously dont need it
there needs to be some rules changed!!!!

Guess again Buckaroo...
My Kids friends mother gets $585 a month is just food benefits,
this does not include what the state (we tax payers) gives her in cash
for other things like, rent, utilities, and personal care items.

Yep. I can vouch for that. Was at one of the U-Scans at Kroger and saw some lady on the closest register get cash back from her Bridge card. After receiving her cash, she left her cart at the end of the register; walked back into the store and came back with a case of Busch. Paid for it with the money she had just received and then left.

the sad part about the whole system is that to many people know how to abuse it and in return it hurts the rest of us honest people. i have worked retail and now i work the meat counter at a local store and it is easy to see all the people that don't have a pot to shit in or a window to throw it out of and you watch them buy just enough to get them by knowing that they are going to be hungry at the end of the week because they just don't have the funds to get what they need and the person next in line ask you to go and get then a strip loin that will coast them a good sixty dollars and they are going around telling others how they scammed the program and how it is so easy and great. it is a worthy program that is in need of reform.

maybe it hasn't been a long time she has had the bridge card. It is possible she had those high end items and a major misforune put her family in a bad place. That is possible .....
