How is using an EBT card to get money any different than selling food stamps? Apart from the efficiency factor, I mean.

There's no evidence people on public benefits are using pot-shop ATMs.

True. Poor people hate pot in much the same way as they hate crack and alcohol.

.....Taxes entitles you to nothing.

And here we have a core belief of the Democratic party.

jso2897: The post, with the links, are in the thread, along with several responses to what you ahve said. I might post more if and when you take the time to read what I have already posted - but frankly, I am quickly wearying of your demands for attention.

Oh the one about the corruption in Florida?  I thought I had already dealt with that issue a couple of times at least.

It's one thing to buy a starving man a sandwich.  It's an entirely different thing to pay his bar tab.

They should put photos on the EBT cards so people can use them vote.

markfara: Uchiha_Cycliste: markfara: Uchiha_Cycliste: markfara: Uchiha_Cycliste: markfara: Uchiha_Cycliste: markfara: I guess it must vary from state to state. The only person I'm acquainted with first-hand who uses government assistance is my mother-in-law in Indiana. She gets her health and utility expenses paid directly by the government, no card necessary. Social Security checks provide her living expenses. She's pretty good at managing the money she gets, but I'm suspect that's not the norm.

To the contrary I would imagine that all the old folks on SS who lived through or were affected by the great depression probably budgets very well.  I know grandmere did.

MIL raised three kids in what was basically a shack, living on a sh*t income, so I think she got hip to budgeting pretty early in the game.

That's great (that she was privy to proper budgeting). If only we could teach kids these days to do the same, and as long as we are dreaming, the GOP too.

Hey! They're the Party of Fiscal Responsibility! Why do you hate fiscal responsibility?

My bad, you are right... it was totally Clinton and Obama's fault we went Trillions of dollars into debt between 2000 and 2008. How stupid of me. At least we can count on the GOP and their laser like ocus on creating new jobs.

They protected us from Saddam's WMDs and brought stability to the region, too. You're obviously a Marxist ingrate! Why don't you just go get gay-married someplace and leave the rest of us alone!


I WAS at Berkeley during the ramp up to the Iraq war. We were pretty gung-ho about it being a stupid idea even before the war started and we made sure our voices were heard, albeit ignored. We never protested Afghanistan though, that was righteous. Anyways, I guess you hit the nail on the head =P

Yeah, I travel a fair amount, and I had occasion to witness, on two different occasions, TWO huge anti-Iraq war protests - one in Washington, D.C. and one in Chicago. Oddly, neither of them made even the local news. Damn liberal media. . . .

Still, Obama's the worst president in history. So remember to vote GOP, ya hear?

I know, right!?! He's so black, and he tries to be so fair, and responsible fiscally and otherwise. But he's so black and the debt he ran up for the nation in the years prior to his election are the final black nail in his black coffin. I'll never vote for Barrack Obama for president again, ever. Then again, that debt isn't half as damning a 9-11. I cant believe Obama allowed the worst terrorist attack evar to occur on hi watch What an awful, horrible black, man.

What is with all the people who freak out at the thought of people's benefits being used for something other than food and rent? How are people supposed to buy clothes or have emergency bus or cab fare or buy a book at a garage sale or snag a street vendor hot dog while hunting down job leads, etc...?

Yes, even poor people need cash sometimes. YOU go a couple months where the only thing you have to barter with is some bananas, a jar of peanut butter and a ten pound bag of rice.

Uchiha_Cycliste: AngryDragon: Of course you can.  There's a Democrat in the White House.

Is this some racist, blacks and drugs thing? I don't get it.

Everybody needs to have their existence acknowledged by their fellow human beings. If the only way you can do that is butt into conversations you can't comprehend and say something pointless and stupid, that's what you do.

ErinPac: You can get your Social Security benefits on a card.  Do you think she'd need to be protected from using the wrong ATM's if she switched to that option?

No. But I don't really place Social Security in the "government handout" category, since she paid into it for years. She can have it all converted to dimes and throw them at the pigeons for all I care.

Big deal.  Here in Maine, people use 'em in strip clubs and gambling.  That's progress!
