I had a good laugh one time one a Conservative girl told me that WIC was one of the few programs she liked because it forced people to buy actually healthy food.Whenever I go out here in Chi area, to any area that has significant people collecting the social handouts, one just needs to be in any significant line and pay attention. Links cards being sold in store, used to buy Pepsi, Cheetos, etc. Parents were in Sam's and saw three women with a cart full of ribs. Guess what paid for that? Links card.
1%....maybe he meant like 1% use the card properly?
They carry milk, cheese, peanut butter, and sometimes eggs. Granted usually more expensive, but why not.I had a good laugh one time one a Conservative girl told me that WIC was one of the few programs she liked because it forced people to buy actually healthy food.
Then a few days later I saw that the local gas station convenience store accepted WIC. That is certainly where I go for healthy food!
This thread has no racism from me, an innocent man had his face slashed over food stamps. I came up with a way to fix the problemI've never added anyone to my ignore list, but nehalem and incorruptible both win the gold today with the circlejerk of racism and bigoted posts.
obvious troll is obvious
That would not fix the problem. Do you think guns should be banned because someone uses them to kill someone? Same retarded thinking.This thread has no racism from me, an innocent man had his face slashed over food stamps. I came up with a way to fix the problem
Still doesn't mean he gets too much, just that his priorities are all fucked up. I don't think he should have them because he gets enough to spend on alcohol, but rather that instead of food he tries to spend them on alcohol.And given that you need food to live and he is not dead...
I think it was okay because the Clerk sounds like a Muslim and the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to move into our Government and put Sharia Law into power in the US.
What items cannot be purchased with Food Stamps?
Prepared hot foods in grocery stores
Any prepared food (hot or cold) sold and meant to be eaten at the store
Alcoholic beverages and tobacco
Cleaning products, paper products, toiletries, and cooking utensils
Items for food preservation such as canning jars and lids, freezer containers, or food wrapping paper
Medicines, vitamins or minerals
Items for gardening such as fertilizer and peat moss
If NYC was providing people with guns and using them commit crimes that would make absolute sense.Purchases of alcohol are prohibited using Food Stamps in New York. So, why would you want to eliminate them due to a drunk person assaulting someone. Based on your stupid logic, guns should be banned b/c someone uses them to commit a crime.
Why do you care how much he makes? Are you the arbitrator of living comfortably? Talk about being authoritarian.Well if someone is willing to go to those lengths to get it then how do you propose we stop them? Put RFiD chips in the food? lol
Seriously, what you are asking for is a total authoritarian government that enslaves us all in the name of cutting costs and "security". Does paying taxes really effect you in such a terrible way that you think this country would be better off with welfare and stamps? I mean, you claim to have this cushy finance/accounting job so exactly how much money do you need to live comfortably? I only ask because it does not take much to have a pretty sweet life in this country.
For someone who hates Obama and probably thinks he is a radical Muslim terrorist, you sure sound like one yourself.
I don't care what he makes, I just don't see why he cares so much. Is that how you measure yourself? I can tell you most women just measure us by length and thickness of cockmeat, and a minor amount of personality.Why do you care how much he makes? Are you the arbitrator of living comfortably? Talk about being authoritarian.
Like I would be nervous of someone with the antisocial personality of a basement dwelling moron hopped up on a fantasyworld political rage soap operas for lonely loser guys who noone likes, thus become narcissistic twits who think everyone is out to get them.You nervous, faced with reality laughter is noted.
And right into the tirade of insults. Damn, you loony leftist are beyond predictable. Seriously, you are textbook.Like I would be nervous of someone with the antisocial personality of a basement dwelling moron hopped up on a fantasyworld political rage soap operas for lonely loser guys who noone likes, thus become narcissistic twits who think everyone is out to get them.
That is the right wing in a nutshell. A bunch of hysterical man children huddling in the dark of their own making.
In reality I bet half of you guys are smoking meth/sleeping with your brain in a bottle to write/believe the paranoid right wing shit you do.
Go to sleep, the liberals and spiders are not coming to eat you. Yet.
Suuuuuuuuuuure they did.Parents were in Sam's and saw three women with a cart full of ribs. Guess what paid for that? Links card.
According to rightwingers, the plural of anecdote is data. They have a feeling it is being abused, because if they were on food stamps, they would try and cheat the system, so of course everyone else MUST be doing it.Some great, high level discussion here.
"Here's an anecdote showing someone trying and failing to abuse X. Get rid of X!"
"But X provides benefits, and according to these stats, there's not much abuse, even if there are some real cases of it."
"I don't believe those statistics, because anecdote!"
