It's ridiculous. Where i was a few months ago, the recipients of "food stamps" got a credit card, which could be used anywhere. Several people used it in the bar that i owned!!!
I was at my local gas station (turkey hill) and these two 400lb "ladies" in their best stained sweatpants blew my mind. Each were carrying over a DOZEN half gallons of ice cream. my first though to say was, "i don't think y'all need anymore ice cream" but i didn't.
Let’s look at some foods that you might think are good for you. A box of cereal perhaps? Not some kid cereal, like Cocoa Pebbles say, that we know is not really that good for us. How about some Quaker 100% Natural Granola, Oats, Honey & Raisins? That’s sounds healthy. All those things are known to be good for us, the oats the raisins and so forth. And heck, 100% natural too! Must be good for us, right? Well, it was actually found to be the worst cereal in the supermarket that you could buy. It has twice as much sugar as the Cocoa Pebbles, and those pebbles have less fat and more fiber than the cereal that most people would think was actually good for them. marselusvanwagner.blogspot.com...

About 50% more people in need just this year alone. These are all folks who never imagined for a second that they would have to resort to food stamps to feed their children. Many of them working families as well. Or at least, were working families.
And just because someone has their nails done, or isn't dressed like they just climbed out of a dumpster, doesn't mean that they don't have a very real need for Foodstamps.
