    Half of my extended family is "disabled" and on some form of .gov assistance including my dear old mom, and I have no problem with this. When you can use your SNAP card for Little Caesars, Monster Energy drinks, donuts, etc. it means we have missed the mark. Not to mention the ones that sell their SNAP credits for .50 on the dollar to get cash for other nefarious reasons. As far as i'm concerned, if I take you out for dinner and I'm paying for the meal, you're damn right I have a say in what you order, and this situation is no different.

    For some reason we have all been guilted into accepting that they should be able to buy steak and crab legs because (insert occasion here) and we don't understand... Screw that, these are our tax dollars and we should find a way to feed the less fortunate (including my redneck family) in the most efficient way possible.

    I come from divorced parents, and we got government cheese, peanut butter, bread, etc. and it did the trick and helped subsidize our weekly grocery costs, but I could certainly see things going sideways if my mom had a SNAP card back then.

    About 10 yrs ago I had a guy approach me as I was walking into a grocery store. Said he was out of gas and his card wouldn't work at the station across the street. Asked if he could pay for my groceries and I could give him cash. I was a little put off but just said sure whatever and he put his hand on my shopping cart. Told him to get the **** away from me. He said it had to look like we were together for "it" to work. This all took place in about 15 seconds but still pissed it took me that long to catch on. Told him to eat shit and that was it.

    All in for the food box plan. Bout' time we fixed this scam.

    Need to do better on welfare. I had an one of our intel guys tell me they were watching a house and discovered that 9 people were using the address to get welfare. They lived in MEX.

    Some of the left has already started. My wife was fuming because on Facebook people were saying, "but they need the card so that they can feel normal, and they have to be able to buy junk food because that helps them feel like normal people. This wold be so unfair to them".

    Most of my extended family are morbidly obese, have fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, or whatever ailment was popular at the time, so they can’t work and successfully were approved for disability.

    My mom was a nurse most of my life until she got caught stealing meds, then quit rehab and lost her license. After all of that it was a quick trip downhill from there, and now she lives at a halfway house in Phoenix, and collects disability, and bashes Trump on Facebook non stop.

    Time for a market correction in the welfare market.

    Just to add to how shitty people have become, my wife has a friend that works in health care. She tells my wife how the other girls she works with hit up the local food pantry every week and load up. That way they do not have to spend their alcohol or smoke money on food.

    We were kind of shocked and started asking around. We found out anyone can go to the local food pantries no matter what their income is, and nobody is turned away.

    My wife and I do not contribute to the local food pantry anymore.

    Wow,......that is weird.
    I always thought that they were for people struggling to have food to eat.

    I am offered food stamps on a weekly basis. Prices range from $.30-.50 on the dollar.

    It makes too much sense to ever be really considered.

    And it all came packaged in a plain white wrapped box that read "powdered milk" or the tin cans that read "grape" or "apple". I remember that shit, tasted terrible but we got by.

    Still remember that 50/50 mix of milk and powdered milk/water.

    :confused:

    Same shit here, all you have to do is provide proof you live in the town (mail, drivers license, ect). People driving up in a couple model year old vehicles to get their free food for the week.
