7. earning amount before we all qualigy for food stamps, you ask?
it will be lower than what any human being can possibly live on, just like it is now. It won't go up. The only way you can qualify for food stamps is if you own NOTHING, earn NOTHING, and you can NOT have a life insurance policy with any cash face value, or a burial plot you can "possibly" sell. You'd have to cash in your life insurance and burial plot first. If your kids have a college account started up by ANYONE in your family (grandparents, aunts, friend of the family, etc.) then you are required to take them to court to liquidate the account. By the way, I am not lying, I lived it.

It would be better if ALL people qualified for food, I guess JUST BECAUSE WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS FIRST. Then we can work out the details. Sure, right. Not in this land of the free. They'd step over your corpse, or your own children to get their next buck.
