<It’s obvious they’ve getting too many EBT dollars. Cut those guilty off the dole forever and slash everyone else’s.

Makes sense to me. If you have ‘money’ to buy extra and send to relatives, then you have too much. Unlike some FReepers, I think that we have enough food and that no AMERICAN should starve. With long term unemployment, recession, etc., I don’t begrudge someone getting food assistance. However, there should only be enough to feed you and your family, and probably some restrictions on what foods you can get (hamburger yes, lobster no).

I wouldn’t be surprised if some of these people sending food overseas don’t have cash, under the table, jobs. Otherwise, they’d need the food for themselves.

3 MREs per family member per day. If its good enough for some 18 year old grunt in the sandbox it’s good enough for them.
