I don't have any words for this at all, except you use government assistance yet have the spare money to splurge on a camera that was over $200? How about sticking all that extra money into something that will help get you out of the situation you're in? That's not a personal attack either, I'd tell anyone that did the same thing and brags about it the exact same thing. What a bummer, I know I can't afford a $200 digital camera right now...oh wait, why? Because I have a family to take care of it and don't have support from Uncle Sam. ugh.
