Could someone post a picture of the EBT card so I’ll be able to recognize the fraudsters too? I’d hate to confuse it with a plain old ATM or credit card.

And while you’re at it, how do I get me one of these “steak and lobster” cards? Hell, I’m not even fit so I should be able to fool even eagle-eyed people like the Congressman.

If you shop in Crystal City beware of the creepy Congressman checking out your muscles and spandex.

Obviously no-one should be allowed food stamps until they have taken on the continence of an anorexia patient.//

“Then they drove off in a brand new Caddy with a I Love Obama Care bumper sticker and vanity plates that read “SUCKA”.” Truth. Really. Honest. Yeah.

Countenance.

Continence means, uh, the ability to hold in one’s bowel movements.

Say a physically fit dude is taking care of his terminally ill dad and has run out of savings. Yeah, I’m okay with giving him food.

Fuck it. I am for a guaranteed minimum income.

I live an active lifestyle. I will be 32 next week. Since I was 18 my weight has fluctuated a grand total of about 10 lbs.

I’ve been on food stamps before. Not because I’m a freeloader and not EVEN because I wasn’t working, but because my income was so low I needed to do something to make ends meet.

If you don’t know the stories, you have no right to judge.

Screw you, Mr. Congressman.

As someone who suffers from a severe, invisible disability I’d like to say to Rep. Mullin: Fuck you, sideways, with a lit stick of dynamite, and no lube.

Sure he does. He’s a Republican. Other than voting to repeal the ACA and threatening to shut down the government, that’s all they do.

No, uh, that’s what I meant, really, because anorexics use lots of laxatives. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

I Googled EBT Card. It looks like every state has their own. They look just like any other credit/debit card.

Damned strapping young bucks getting our food and our daughters!

Also, I think you meant countenance…since continence has more to do with bowel movements…

“The food programs are designed to take care of people who can’t work”

WRONG. Those programs are designed to help anyone whose income is low enough to put them in danger of going hungry. A lot of hard-working people qualify for EBT cards because their cheap ass exploiter employers won’t pay them enough to live on. It’s possible that Mr. Muscles and Ms. Spandex are both working hard at minimum wage jobs because the decent jobs that allowed them to buy those nice Nikes were lost to Republican-championed outsourcing.
Cheap labor is subsidized by the taxpayers. Republicans can’t have it both ways, reduce working people to abject poverty AND abolish the aid programs that keep them alive to work. The alternative is revolution.

I, for one, am tired of seeing my tax-dollars being used to subsidize Walmart’s sweatshop labor practices.

15 Origuy  Fri, Aug 9, 2013 8:49:17pm

It’s also possible that they are using an EBT card that was issued to someone with limited mobility. Maybe they are buying groceries for their 85-year-old neighbor who doesn’t own a car.

Are we trying to legislate by anecdote again?

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
