You don't have restrictions in TX like we do in MD?

WIC is very specific with what you can buy.

Food stamps aren't. You can pretty much purchase any food item at a grocery store. I am not real familiar with birdguy's references to prepared foods.

I stand by my stereotype.

Yeah, I didn't expect you to change your mind, I just wanted to point out your channelized thinking to those few who haven't already noticed it. Observe, dear Reader: this is what a programmed mind looks like.

What little mind you have is incapable of change, I'm betting, because you only hear what you want to hear, and leave everything else outside your bubble.

You should not be able to buy lobster, nor should you be able to have a sandwich made for you anywhere. I don't know why I am supposedly a bigot for wanting people to stop scamming the system and start paying their own way.

The largest reform of the welfare system in recent years, was done under the William Clinton Administration.

More "corporate" welfare (HUGE corporate tax breaks) was initiated in recent years by Republican administrations. There are huge profitable companies that pay no taxes.

Lets keep the actual FACTS straight.

I know about the large businesses that pay no taxes. The NFL is one such thing. They are classified as a non-profit. The people are too dumb to do anything about it, so I am targeting the wastes that something can be done about.

This from a guy who sold a trailer under the table to avoid paying sales tax.

Fucking hypocrite.

Yes, they are called different things in different states.

Years ago it was simply Food Stamps and it looked like Monopoly money. Now it's mostly swipe cards that are reloaded at intervals.

Thanks. If they're just swiping cards now like everyone else how is it evident that they are using foodstamps for luxury foods?

WTF are you talking about? I have not avoided taxes at all. Some of our customers have by registering stuff in Maine. It is not illegal for them to do that. I might argue that it is immoral, but no laws are broken.
