People are buying beer and candy with foodstamps
My friend has foodstamps he told me there is a 711 that lets you buy beer with foodstamps under the table.

He uses his foodstamps to buy beer and candy then spends his money on more beer.

Re: People are buying beer and candy with foodstamps
Our country is doomed.I don't understand why the govt. wouldn`t at least make sure food stamps are used for necessities and not frivolous bs. I`m all about helping people but this isn`t helping, this is creating an entitlement society where people have no concept of working hard to earn there keep.I thought we were in a desperate fiscal crisis!Why are we just flushing money like it grows on trees? I heard were advertising food stamps in Mexico encouraging people to come up and get free food stamps.WHAT?! This is either a blind attempt to get more democratic voters up here to cement liberal control by dangling benefits, or it`s a blatant attempt to weaken this country by causing another even worse,great depression.Either way we`re screwed. I feel like throwing up!

Re: People are buying beer and candy with foodstamps
When my friend was homeless, I saw what her friends were doing. They would work construction day jobs for cash, then say they were unemployed to get those benefits. Then they would take their foodstamps and buy meat, like steaks and franks, then go to the park on the weekend and sell the meat for 1/2 price to the people there. Then they would take the cash they got and would buy cigs, beer, and crack. This took place in Austin, Texas

Austin? No surprise. Liberal Mecca.

But...it probably happens everywhere. I was in line at a Big!Lots up here in Idaho (buying a replacement case for the cell phone) and a couple of Amerifats were in front of me, buying $22 in fucking candy on their EBT.

$22. I could eat for a week, maybe 10 days, on that amount of money. And eat well.

You must be a worm with the shit slung out of it if you only eat 22$ worth a food in a week.

We need to have marijuana cards and free Xanax too for all the conservatives who will be having nervous breakdowns.

Obama can socialise beer, put his white house ale in all the stores. Everyone gets a 24 pack a week. cool2

So you know someone breaking the rules and a store that lets them do it. You can either report them or just be the worthless piece of shit that you are and post about it.

Yup. Here in NYC, many many delis accept EBT cards but instead of ringing/scanning the items, like they do in supermarkets, they just simply pass it through as a "regular" sale (including hot prepared foods-which are NOT allowed for purchase on EBT cards) and walla, purchase is authorized!
If you think thats bad, EBT card holders can and DO go to delis and cash in their food-stamps for cash-something like 50 cents on the dollar!
F**d up, aint it???
