littlefox is right, flatliner. The US Government is NOT a charity. At least according to the US Constitution, which establishes the LEGAL powers of the Government, it’s not a charity. But liberal “Progressives” have turned the largest part of the US Government into a wealth-redistribution system to buy votes, to establish an entitlement class dependent on their corrupt, illegal system, and to empower and enrich themselves.

Illegal and immoral, Democrits. But since you have no morals, that doesn’t matter to you.

Fortunately for America, those Democrit vote-buying Ponzi scams are coming to their end, as do all Ponzi scams. When that happens, whether you blame the thieving, lying Demorats who established them or whether you blame George Bush, you will become responsible for yourselves and will reap what you sew. And responsible Americans will rebuild and restore.

Enjoy the chaos, liberals, because you built that.

Charity is abundant in the USA, without prejudice. If you can get to a Walmart, you can bet there's a charitable organization in close proximity, ready and willing to help. And doing a much better job of actively finding and helping the poor who can't help themselves. If you want to be an advocate for the poor, a good place to start is with less biatching and more support for the millions of volunteers who bypass the broken government system and get the job done.

flatlander, the EBT card "disaster" is a great lesson for Food Stamp America - Don't count on anyone or anything except yourself. Your family depends on you to be prepared for the next inevitable glitch in the system.

Meanwhile, the USDA web page for "the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program," formerly and still known as the "Food Stamp Program" has been blocked. They left this message:

"Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available. After funding has been restored, please allow some time for this website to become available again."

So none of these 30% are the working poor? There are hard working people who need assistance. I'm sure there is some abuse but your assumption that all recipients are lazy is incorrect.

Puppet in Chief Barry Benghazi Obankrupter never worked a day in his life. He has no history of accomplishing anything. He’s spending eight years living in Government-subsidized housing, golfing, vacationing, occasionally reading a teleprompter, and signing whatever George Soros tells him to, and banking million$ every year from shill purchases of his foreign-published, racist diatribes. Nice gig, if you have no morals whatsoever.

Aw c'mon Trollslayer, President Obama worked hard for that 30% and he aims to keep them right where they are.

All "FOOD" items should be coded as auth. for food stamps. Beer, cosmetics, and other such items should be rejected.

A liberal porker with its nose in the public trough raises its snout from the Obamaslops just long enough to call me a pig. Rich.

flatlander “Do you realize that more than 70% of households receiving food stamps contains an elderly person, disabled person or a child/children?”

Ok, I’ll make you a deal, flatliner. Cut off food stamps for that 30% of households that DOESN’T contain an elderly person, disabled person or a child/children, and send those able-bodied adults the jobs listing from the local paper instead. A 30% cut in freeloading would be a good start. Deal?

flatliner, did YOU ever look into one of those carts? Grandma is surviving on Cheeze **** and premium sliced bacon. Maybe there's a better way to take care of those elderly and children than giving them AND every freeloader with a Social Security number a Government credit card and paying it off with the next generation's entire GDP? Derrrrr...

I'm glad you inspected each cart for its contents.

Have you ever had your credit card or your debit card denied when you presented it at a store, only to find it was just a computer glitch, and that a day later it was working fine? Of course. Everybody has. Computer glitches happen, especially with systems designed to be secure and designed to deny access if pins and passwords don’t match perfectly.

Chill out, people. You’ll get your free Cheetos and Chips Ahoy tomorrow. Nobody starved because you couldn’t spend those taxpayer-provided Obamabucks on that shopping cart full of Orange Fanta and DiJiorno pizza today. Oh, and you’re welcome.
