As much as I usually respect your opinion, you ever heard of someone going to pick berries by finding the best bush, denuding it, and leaving the rest alone?
Doesn’t this correspond with the “disaster drills” for October through Novemeber for the region around washington DC?
i’m gonna be smart and load my car with food quietly first. The people where I am are likely not to know about this.
If there’s no budget deal... on Oct 31...I’ll be loading up my pet and suitcase and heading to my brother’s house.
No parents. A brother.
If they’re worthless, how are ppl going to sell them for cash? Jeeze.
All EBT stands for is Electronic Banking Card.
So yes, one set up as a SNAP card may only purchase food or seeds with same. But those serving as unemployment benefits for instance may work like ATM/debit cards - same as cash with no restrictions.
EBT for Costco membership? Prolly not.
But hey, since some employers provide a freebie or reduced-cost membership as a benefit to employees, howzabout we just make it mandatory for employers of more than 50 people?
How bout it?
glad we moved out of the cesspit of memphis in June. It isn’t going to be pretty when all those illegals and welfare queens get their EBT cards cut off, that is after all their loto money, cig money and booze or drug money.
It’s early enough I’ll have to think about that for a bit... :)
That means they should print the food stamps in fluorescent colors, and as large as a newspaper.
Maybe set off a loud alarm when they are presented.
Actually one checkout line should be dedicated to only servicing EBT. There should be scale and the overweight will be escorted out(to there new cars).
Note to self, try not to smile.....
In my local sooper market, the fish market manager tells me that without EBT purchases, lobsters are a tiny part of his business. Same for oysters and salmon.
The whole EBT system is a joke. In fact the system is bias against those who try to better themselves.
About 3yrs ago I was unemployed (the shop I worked for closed down)and I had to collect unemployment. I applied for an EBT card a few months into it and was denied. Two months before I found a job, they finally sent me one of those cards with $15 a month for food. In the meantime I had gotten by with help for food from local charities and food banks. What really ticked me off, was the fact that some of those same people I saw loading baskets at the food banks were also loading food into baskets at the local grocery store and it was a hell of a lot more food than $15 could buy.
The whole system is a scam and a vast majority of the people who are receiving benefits are abusing the system. The bastids will have no problem rioting in the streets when their benefits get cut. They’ll probably riot at the food banks as well.
“Every EBT piglet that Ive ever seen could stand to go a few months without their slop. Obese, every one.”
Cheap food is fattening.
Healthy food is expensive.
