"Bar in Ohio loses license after undercover agents bought lap dances, drugs with food stamps"

First off, I know I know, there is corporate welfare going on and that needs a serious overhaul too. It is possible to
have a problem with both.

There is serious food stamp fraud going on. There was a story not so long ago that people were using them at casinos.
I think we really need to start reeling this stuff in. I'm tired of my tax money being fleeced this way.
We all want to help the downtrodden, but this is getting crazy.

True story women in front of me at grocery store bought case of red bull and snicker with food stamps. Is that Ok?
Is that how we give a person a hand up? I don't think so.

Lol yeah...We live pretty near there, heard this on the radio. You wouldnt believe the cons used with food stamps EBT cards etc...

Many convenience stores in Western Ohio have been busted selling alcohol on EBT. Back when I was in college at U of Cincy in the 80s, I worked in a Stop n Rob (go) and folks would buy a 5cent mint with a dollar coupon at differnt stores and collect the hard currency change until they got enough to buy a bottle of Wild Irish Rose.

The lap dance thing was on local radio yesterday...quite an industrious angle.

God Im glad we are moving back to Oregon

Snickers with a food card?

To the gallows with her. If you're on the program all you should be able to buy is beans and pasta dammit.

I'm not down with the energy drink purchase but at the same time you can buy coffee so why not?

A couple years back in elyria a store got shut down for selling grass to people paying with the card.

Pay for your smoke at the convenient store them go across to the other store to pick it up

You know, i'm not saying people don't need a treat, a soda, etc every now and then, but CASES??
If they were all for her own consumption then we will be paying for her medical issues down the road too.

I think they should be able to pay for strippers with food stamps.


If they are poor, and the government deems it that they could supply a stipend to help them, is it the responsibility of government to tell them how and where to spend it?

So they go hungry for a week or two.

They got to see stripper boobs!

Its so tricky, the whole concept. There are some that game the system, and there are some that would be doomed without it. I saw an 18 year old with a half dozen kids at a store near me...forget what she was buying, but I was told she got over a grand on her card a month and lived in section 8 housing...I couldnt help but be a bit peeved over it as at the time I was working 2 jobs to keep my own famy afloat.

The problem isn't with the players, the problem is with the politicians who make the rules.

Politicians WANT people dependent on government. So government can justify getting bigger.

yeah me either but people do buy cases of stuff.

but when you say a case of red bull and a snicker it reads like 1 candy bar

not important
just saying

for the sake of conversation why should a case of red bull not be allowed when giant cans of coffee are?
know what i mean

lots of strands on ole duders head
