I'm sorry that your life is hard.
I wish you didn't feel the need to bash other poor for having more, but I understand how hunger can lead to rage.

There's a difference between the poor and parasites.

If you believe welfare recipients should live better than those who actually pay to feed them you're insane.

I think that they both (the working poor and the non working poor) should be brought above the level of starvation. Eating ramen noodles is starvation. There are no nutrients in that product and that lack of nutrients cannot be replaced by anger alone.

I do not think that bringing them all down to the level of starvation is the solution. But then I don't like the idea of people starving, while I'm sure there are millions against me that think many people deserve to starve.

The lady with 5 different cards in 5 different names is breaking the law and should be refused at checkout. EBT cards have the person's pic on it as identification.
 Quoting: geminilion


Not true in all states. I've seen them with no picture, and NO NAME!
 Quoting: INK3


I don't know of any states that have a picture. The point is that a lot of these cards are issued to people that are unable to retrieve the food for themselves (the elderly, ill, and those without vehicles). They are able to be used by whomever but, the food is supposed to only be eaten by those in the home.

Furthermore, whomever claimed it was 'fraud' to feed other people with that food is ridiculous. The point of the program is to make a family 'normal'. therefore, if Billy is having a birthday party and mom is going to provide pizza and soda and chips of r the kidd0s, it is perfectly acceptable to buy those with the card. If aunt Matilda comes to visit, she is welcome to share in the family meal.

I worked as a social worker for several years and had people comment when they saw me use a card for a home-bound parent- to bring them groceries when there was NOTHING in their home to eat since the mother could not get to the store and the children were too young to go on their own. The person using the card isn't always the recipient.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I have been working since I was 15, and I am now 63. Have been a professional field all my life. Have recently had to obtain food stamps. I am one who looks nice, drives a pretty ok car, keep my nails, hair and makeup looking nice.

This is a temp situation. If there are those who choose to judge at the checkout line, then guess whos problem that is - that is between them and God.

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
I work in at a store, and I am ill at what I see.
I am a divorced man trying to be responsible, but can't even afford a christmas present for my child, and eat ramen noddles. Honestly have not had a real home cooked meal in months.


What I see:

One woman that is a regular has 5, yes 5, food cards in different names. All have over $200 balances. (another steak please)

Another man works for UPS, brags how is making 22/hr but uses a food card with over $1000 dollar balance.

90% of all the food cards are used for candy and soda.

Those that use food cards will then take out cash, buy $100 worth of lottery tickets and cigarettes.

I love those that pull up in their Lexus, dressed in designer clothes, beautiful make-up and hair, then pull out the EBT to buy a $5 bottle of tea.

Those that have EBT cash will get money back and then go across the street to the liquor store.

Every day I go to work, I want to take these people and throw them in the dumpster where they belong, Called worthless trash.

It doesn't matter if makes a living wage or not, he still pays taxes that allow jobless bums to get steak while he is eating noodles.Supply of the food was never in question, the US pretty much feeds the planet.

The point being jobless bums on EBT/welfare shouldn't be buying smokes and liquor while part time working Americans are eating noodles. Don't you think it would be a better idea if jobless bums didn't have 5 kids and gave up there EBT/welfare purchased liquor/smokes so someone working 20 hours a week can eat something of nutritional value?

Do you even listen to yourself talk?
Because you sound really stupid right now.

A working man shouldn't have to eat noodles, while some fat Black women with 5 kids and has never worked a day in her life buy steaks and lottery tickets on his dime.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27418740


You, nor the Op know if these people are working or not.
You cannot buy liquor or lotto with a EBT
What if the lady with 5 cards runs errands for 5 old and fraile ladies on her street?
You do not know the facts and you jumped right on the "demean the poor" bandwagon.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17549114



If you truly believe there are not places that will sell liquor or give you cash back on EBT you are a moron.
You can ramble on about "what ifs", but 99% of the time its a jobless bum living fat on EBT while tax payers almost starve.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27418740


If 2 guys rob a armored car are they millionaires or just fucking thieves. They are thieves. You aren't talking about welfare recipients, you're talking about felons
You seem quite comfortable using "what if's", why can't I?
Food Stamps for a "bum"(one person) is 210 per month. That is some PHAT living right there!!!! 7 dollars a day!! Yooo hooo!
Here is the real problem. Goverment money, people are gonna get at it, and I happen to think that a scumbag banker, kicking it in a bail out bonus funded Benz is much more disgusting, and you most likely idolize him
Republicans parrot "wealth redistribution" all the time, non stop. well, check this, the poor are still poor and the middle class are being wiped out. Who has that money? Tyrone ain't got it
You are geting your ass kicked in the big shell game of life and you call me a moran?
Fuckin funny

Re: Welfare cards (EBT) in MA The truth!
You can't get cash back on a food card, unless you're dealing with a shady merchant.

If you have foster kids, even if you have a good job, those kids would each qualify for their own food stamps.

Yeah, and I can imagine this 'shady' character will take a small percentage to return them cash and then turn around and sell it for a tidy little profit.

The lady with 5 different cards in 5 different names is breaking the law and should be refused at checkout. EBT cards have the person's pic on it as identification.
 Quoting: geminilion


indeed. OP you are responsible for reporting these lawbreakers to the police when you see fit.

and start acting like a normal store employee and start STEALING SHIT! No reason to be eating ramen noodles if you work in a grocery store.

Fine.

Use food as a weapon and starve yourselves to death in your battle against any poor that have managed to find enough to eat....

Just because someone is a crook and a fraudster doesn't mean they are poor.

The OP provided examples of fraud.

I'm tired of trying to tell you that the working class should be allowed to eat well.

Lord.
 Quoting: The Light Under the Door


Hmmm, those who are working are not the 'working class'??? They shouldn't be allowed to 'eat well'???

Stop defending lazy people who just don't want to work! Yes, there are some who collect because of the economy, but the majority of these people who scam have been scamming since long before the collapse.

OP provides examples of what he thinks is fraud.
He should get some food into his system and worry about himself first.

Although I get the feeling he's really just a well fed troll.

Same fucking things with Armenians in Glendale Ca. They all drive up in nice new cars, nice clothes and jewelry to the store and buy fresh salmon and steaks, while (at the time) I was broke and buying bulk hamburger and hamburger helper.
