That 2 dollar lottery ticket can buy milk, cereal, soup, etc. It's about learning to make the right choices for yourself. I had 10 brothers and sisters and my Mom knew how to stretch that dollar to make a meal for all of us. We rarely had soft drinks although she would buy Kool Aid or make sun tea, etc.
    who are you to say what a necessity is and isn't?

    Not truly, but diabetes is a very individual disease. We insulin dependents can usually have what we like as long as we comp enough insulin to cover the carb count. When it comes to control via meds it usually best to follow a more guided health plan than a bunch of candy as a meal.

    I'll take the wins where I can. But I'm optimistically skeptical.

    There's that. I wonder if half a dozen or so of the last several had been black kids how would the narritive conversations be different. Does Jeff Sessions' Anglo heritage speech not have any precedent in the most disturbing of crimes when policing other Anglo's? Prolly not.

    And what is this doing to the psychie of all the thousands of students who go through these things and have either lost friends or had to be cleared front their classrooms behind armed guard. PTSD is real, especially when you've had to deal with a random shooting only feet away in your formative young adult years. I feel so bad for these kids.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    What's sad is that when i heard it, the mere way it was reported had me thinking..."Ok, it's a school shooting...they didn't speculate about gang related so he probably wasn't black and they didn't speculate about terrorism so he probably wasn't middle eastern, so probably a white kid who snapped?"

    I don't know about other states, but in NY, people often have the same card for both food stamps (SNAP) and cash assistance. I think it's so that when someone shops for groceries, they can use the same card for food and paper towels, coffee filters and other non-food items. But they may be able to use the cash assistance to buy lottery tickets, too.
