    The connection is this...

    So I'm in the supermarket and this well dressed lady with a manicure and pedicure that cost a minimum of $35.00 whips out her SNAP (food stamp) debit card and since it's the end of the month and the total is $10.00 her food stamp card only had $8.00.. so she swipes her bank debit card.

    Now my frustration with the 40+ million Americans on food stamps is a certain percentage of them have:
    Free cell phones..
    free Section 8 rent..
    get welfare checks,
    some have people in household getting unemployment checks
    and these same people can afford a $35 manicure/pedicure?

    AND yet the MSM get's ALL bent out of shape when Newt says..

    At a party fund raising dinner in the Des Moines suburbs, the former House speaker launched into a defense of his proposal to teach the nation's poorest children the connection between "showing up" and earning money — by putting them to work in their schools in the country's poorest neighborhoods.

    "I believe the kids could mop the floor and clean up the bathroom and get paid for it, and it would be OK," he said to applause.

    Gingrich said, mockingly, that those on the left would oppose his idea because it might prompt the children to earn more money and eventually escape poverty, "and then who would rich liberals worry about?"

    Newt Gingrich expands on his support for child labor - latimes.com

    AND what is wrong with THAT??

    Guess this is the update of Reagan's welfare queen driving her Cadillac to the Welfare office.

    Big fuckin' deal!

    We should be thankful we live in a country where even our poorest citizens can afford a lousy 35 bucks for a manicure/pedicure.

    Not a damned thing wrong with what he said. Too many on the gravy train at the expense of others. The point? It needs to stop. Those of us paying the bills are outnumbered by the moocher class.
