So this is basically what you’re going to see in mostly every corner store: food stamps and lottery. Perfect, huh? Great combination, food stamps and lottery. The lottery gives the poor people dreams to win something that they’re probably never going to win. Giving your money away to try to have that one chance out of a billion.

I want to see my kids happy. That’s my goal, just to always see them happy coming in from outside. I think a happy child is less of a “crime child”. I don’t want them to see the bad world we live in today. My son and grandson deserve a better life of happiness.

My kids are fruit people. That’s the banana king. He loves bananas. So, every day, he likes to ask for a banana, and if I say no, he gets sad.  Until I run out of food stamps, I have fruit. The fruits last for about two weeks.

That’s the deep freezer now. It’s empty. It’s just those two items in that one little box. How is this supposed to feed a family of six?
