Editor, the Advocate:

In my opinion, the only ones who should receive food stamps are the elderly. They have paid their dues. Most are on very expensive medication, and their Social Security benefits, well, that's a joke. If so many are on food stamps, then why are there so many hungry children? Well, a lot of times the stamps are sold; it's not hearsay, I know for a fact.

If you can't afford a lot of children, don't have them.

I have never received government assistance and don't plan on ever applying for it. If we don't have the money, we do without.

Frances Gaona, Victoria
