I'm with the couponing thing...someone please help me learn how to do it without going nuts. It seems like all the coupons are for things we don't need, just thigns we would like to have.

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

I completely agree with this. I work 80+ hours a week at 3 jobs to keep myself and my horse taken care of. It boggles my mind when I see people buying expensive tack and clothing when they can't afford to feed their children. I know a girl who had her three children taken from her because she wasn't taking care of them. She turned around and bought a horse instead of trying to get her kids back. She refuses to work, spends most of the money on drugs and is on every government offered money assistance program you can imagine even still claiming her kids so she can get more money. I can't afford drugs with what I've got left after taxes, rent, board, and food but it's cool that the crackhead down the street can afford it on my dollar. Talk about living the american dream, refuse to do anything and have someone else pay for your drug/alcohol/smoking addiction, and their 6 children that all dropped out of school and refuse to do anything as well. God bless america.

Demon, maybe a couponing thread in off topic? I've thought about it myself too but it seems like I only find coupons for stuff I don't use and junk processed foods that we don't eat. The only ones I use are the customer perk ones Kroger mails based on what you buy so I get $5 off of $20 worth of produce, etc but those don't come very often.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

OUCH! Done! I've been advocating this all over my facebook page and in PM's so it's probably better to get it out there once. I hope other people find it as beneficial as we have. =)

LOL you know, it doesn't hurt them any, but some stores/cashiers still get their panties in a bunch! Just gotta tough it out...it's worth it!

I honestly can't stand to see people do these sorts of things.

Its not fair to tax payers nor is it fair to the horse. Like what someone else said, those are usually the horses that starve.

Its just not right to see those on welfare making more money than those who work very hard to provide for their families. I find it just sickening. I'm proud to say that my father, who has worked for 20-24ish years (somewhere along that line), has only missed 4 days of work due to injury or sickness. Hes a very hard worker and for that we are very blessed.

But to see other people, sitting on their butts watching TV with their fancy flat screen, having 11+ kids, smoking pot or whatever they do, and say they need more from welfare? Is this what the world is coming down to? People use to have a lot of pride in what they did, now I'm just not sure of it...

I also can't stand to see these 16+ year old kids having children. Its terrible. A girl at my high school keeps getting pregnant (on her 3rd child I believe), from what I've heard from the news, shes been caught smoking pot and drinking. Its so not fair for those kids....Which kinds reminds me of this picture I saw on Facebook. It was some famous guy (not into that stuff...) saying that so-and-so dated, then got married, then had children. He went on to say that, that is how its supposed to be. I completely agreed with it. But I saw one of the comments from a younger girl saying, "Oh so we're supposed to live in the 50's standards now?"

Then it will be pretty obvious that those are the people that end up on welfare. But hey, why work for what you got and have pride when Santa Clause can give it to you for free with no work?

some days I wish it was still the '50's just for the fact that the world is so different now, and not in all good ways. I wish people still had standards from the 1950s. I'm a 20 year old and I wish people still had standards from then! THings like manners, the nuclear family, standards for themselves, pride in their work, love of their country, and hard workers. I'm embarrassed to speak of my age group because so many of the people I know that are around my age are absolutely ridiculous. They expect everything to be handed to them on a diamond platter with ruby accents and it does not work like that.
