It's not the whole reason, but it's a start.
Is the bottom really the best place to start? Should'nt you start at the top?
If you're running a budget that's in the red at every level, why are you letting that money bleed off into things that are unnecessary?
And therein lies the spin to all of this like it always is. All you ever get to see is the people doing dumb things like buying a weed pipe and
getting a tattoo with their welfare (If these people even exist anyways, I'm sure Fox would not make anything up.) I wonder why they never show any of
the people that are struggling and use their little welfare to feed their kids and pay bills? Or why they never do stories on the people that actually
use it responsibly?
Because they don't want you to see or think about that end of the spectrum.
Just to add, my little sister works at the local tattoo/weedpipe/XXX store, which is right in central LA. She has been there for over 10 years. We
actually talked about this the other day because it came up in a conversation but not once has she ever seen anyone come in and try to use a snap card
or a welfare card to buy things with. in fact, she says most people just pay with cash because they are scared of leaving a papertrail if they buy a
bong or a glass rose or something to smoke stuff out of. Or maybe they don't want their significant other to look at the bank statement and see they
purchased a blowup doll and a crackpipe.
But still, you'd think she would have at least encountered it if it was such a rampant problem that they needed to pass a law to curb it.
But hey, another article from Fox news about how poor people are ruining everything is cool, can't get enough of those.
