Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair or f-ing beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.- Al Swearengen

It's worse than that, they cash out and buy whatever. Strip clubs even seem to be getting in on the action.

Most of the gas station around here take EBT cards. All they have to do is setup a stand of bananas and apples next to the cash register. That opens a new revenue stream from the soda fountains to many other things that once were off limits.

Come on guys. We'd have a lot of starving and malnourished Americans in the 21st century if not for the great benevolence of our honest hard working politicians and bureaucrats at the state and federal level.

What would this poor kid do if his parents were not on food stamps?

What real poor kids do without food stamps.

A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.

Look in the fridge if any food stamp recipient. Bet you see about 5 stacks of Lunchables.
Nobody cares about your season totals.

You'd be amazed at what I see people buy with the State Louisiana purchase EBT Card....
