COMMENTARY     

Julie

Military families don't *need* food stamps and other assistance. They are eligible for them, yes, but they don't need them. It's shameful for them to collect it when they are being provided shelter, medical care, and reduced-price food. (And, yes, we are an enlisted military family.)

Because we screwed them out of their land, as usual...

Um...b/c we have a military presence there. B/c a lot of US military personnel (especially younger families) end needing food stamps or other assistance. And Guam's overall population is small. So it distorts the percentages.

Guam is a territory of the United States.

Because Guam is a US territory.

How can it be, that residents of GUAM can get United States welfare benefits? Would someone please clarify that? What other foreign countries are getting welfare for their citizens-and most importantly; WHO put this over on the US Taxpayers?
