I have a question - not racist just want to know wtf is going on!
ok as the title says I have a question.

ok, here is my story.

I live in hawaii, I was at a KTA supermarket standing in line to check out with my bag of salted black beans and the person in front of me (man - women - 1 child), spoke no English at all, they were running through a hefty $400.00+ grocery list.
I was annoyed as i had to wait so long so was a bit irritated then what commenced made me almost have a bowel movement in my shorts.

moving on, 20 minutes or so later when the clerk tallies up the bill it comes to almost $500.00, I and the other customers in line were quite surprised that anyone would spend so much money at a KTA supermarket (pricey apposed to other markets in area).

the cashier tells them the price and the guy has this dumb look on his face, (I came to the conclusion he had no idea what she was saying) anyway, he pulls out a wad of papers about 8 inches in width and 4" in height, he had about 10 of them, so being the inquisitive guy that I am, my eyeballs locked on to the big letters of $50.00 - the rest I couldn't make out. immediately, after seeing the big $50 my thoughts turned to rage, this guy looked at all of us and laughed.

I was so frustrated, times are hard here like everywhere else and I work and try to support my family, food is expensive for us as I have one son on dialysis and a wife that needs special care, they both need special foods, every month we scrape by, We have tried to get some government assistance and was denied. I gross 60k a year, mortgage is $2700 a month. I am not trying to cry a river to you all I am just providing you with my circumstances.

anyway back to the story, after this guy leaves and i get to the cashier, 2 minutes later I am out the door. i head to my truck and I see this guy loading his free food into his $40k
ford truck.


I walked away in disgust.....

so my question is... does anyone know what these vouchers were or have any information on them?

<rant>

also on a side note, I am really disappointed in the American system, it seems to me that our country doesn't give two shits about me, yet want to reward a damn foreigner with a good life and free food.

sorry for the rant foreigners, no offense intended, I am just sick of it.

Rosetta stone.. learn to speak Spanish or Hindu, walk into any federal office with 12 kids (they don't even have to be yours). Stand there and rattle off a few sentences in your new found cultural pride. Instruct all the kids pull their pockets inside out and have them start crying at the same time.. they'll have you out the door and on your way to Walmart in no time.

I know you probably meant learn to speak english, in this case this family knew none, but they knew how to hand over a bunch of food vouchers that looked federal. (similar to cashiers checks but not)

in any case you are probably right but this doesn't answer my question of wtf were those $50.00 vouchers/certificates?

MOVE ON CRY BABY! Everyone has trouble in life, we are not to be blamed for your family health issues, stop blaming everyone for what's going on, especially minorities. You have a huge mortage and you know your family's medical conditions, soon your house will be foreclosed, you are part of what's going on in America due to the fact that you are betting high when you barely can make it.

You are the problem, stop blaiming everybody else.

Reading comprehension FTL...

No, they meant to say learn to speak X. As in, they were informing you how to cheat the system and get the same vouchers the foreigher in your story was sporting.

As to your point, it all comes down to voting blocks and dispsoable income. The politicians covet the ever growing foreign voting blocks and in turn make it easier for them to get around the system.

Which in turn gives them disposable incomes that the coporations desperately want to latch onto, thereby furthing the vicious cycle.

I hear ya dude. Don't let it get you down.

I live a pretty ordinary life. I go to the store to get a carton of milk and a 5 Lb bag of shelled peanuts. This woman is in line, got rings on every finger, make-up, nice clothes, hair is done up, fancy necklace, and buying steaks with FOOD STAMPS (EBT) card.

What the fuck, I like a steak when I can afford one. This person (non american) is gaming the system, while I pay the taxes to support her lifestyle. Yeah it pisses me off.

Grin and bear it?

Op what you post here is one of the reasons I took my family to live in Australia.

It is very disheartening to be born into a country that makes it plain that they will help any other nationality, but their own.

Hi Dreamslayer, I totally understand how you are feeling. I get angry too when I see people scamming the system. I don't know what the $50 papers were, but from your description, it sounds like they may be actual food stamps that were in use before they started giving people the "EBT" cards to use instead. Maybe next time you are at that store, you can ask a cashier what they are, and more importantly, how to get them! lol

Wishing you the best!

i'm a hard working courier here in the UK, and part of my job is to deliver cheques to asylum seekers here. people who are NOT citizens of this country, showered with free cash.
