FoodStamps = Welfare

Best Idea I've heard in a while: There should be a seperate line for people using food stamps.

Why should the ones paying the bills have to wait in line behind the takers?

The worst idea ever? Replacing the paper stamps with a debit card.

The NY Times has an article about how the attitude has changed.

1 in 8 Americans are on food stamps.
1 in 4 children are on food stamps.

There's also an interactive map of the country HERE.

  • I argued once with a numbnut who shall remain nameless. And by nameless, I mean jobless.

    He said that debit cards eliminated fraud.

    As if someone couldn't give their code to someone and charge them 50 cents on the dollar to use the card and bring it back to them.

    And he wonders why he can't find work, lives on food stamps and yet still has high speed internet access and goes out drinking $4.50 beers at Blackstone.
