    There is no true poverty in the United States of America.
    That is, material poverty. But there is spiritual poverty, poverty of character.
    And there is a virulent political philosophy that encourages taking, rather than earning....
    ...pleading and demanding based on envy.

    Food stamps for those who need food, and cannot provide for themselves...an old and honorable heritage in America: "On January 6, 1657 twenty-eight “Scottish men” signed the Laws Rules and Order of the Poor Boxes Society” in Boston, New England and formed the Scots’ Charitable Society."

    But what the Left has made common is a blemish on the nation and the people...

    1."Mass Gov. Deval Patrick Vetoes Ban On Using Welfare EBT Cards To Purchase Porn, Tattoos, Manicures Because It Would “Humiliate Poor People”…No surprise he’s a close friend of Barack Obama (Axelrod ran his first campaign for Mass governor).

    2. Patrick vetoed the reforms Sunday while signing the state’s $32.5 billion budget.

    3. According to the Boston Herald, which first reported the veto, the governor berated the legislature’s stab at banning the purchase of specific items like manicures, tattoos, guns, porn, body piercings, jewelry, and bail by saying the move was “political grandstanding” at a time when such reforms are already on track elsewhere.


    4. “I’m not going to do anything that makes vulnerable people beg for their benefits.This notion of humiliating poor people has got to be separated from how we make a program, and frankly separated and disposed of, from how we make a program work and work well,” Patrick said,...



    5. Patrick allowed bans on the use of EBT cards in establishments known for the sale of seemingly controversial items — such as tattoo parlors, gun shops, casinos, cruise ships, and adult entertainment facilities —- to stand."
    Exposing Liberal Lies: Deval Patrick OKs Porn, Tatoos, Jewelry with Food Stamps




    We live in a time when the welfare industry needs to convinced well-meaning folks that there is a 'need.'
    Rather it is a 'want.'


    Consider the above when you vote.

    1) Should not have to even stipulate this.. and it shows the pitiful state our country is because it has to be stipulated
    2) But we should not have welfare anyway...

    1. I have often felt that food stamps should be reserved for purchases labeled as nutritious, but 'no-frills.'
    No reason for those accepting 'Food Stamps' to eat better than those paying for the benefit.

    2.Further, there should be government-sponsored church and other food kitchens available to any with a food stamp card.....no 'doggie bags.'

    They are called 'Food Stamps" for a reason.


    Wadda you think?

    It is a form or welfare or entitlement.. just because multiple departments or systems run differing aspects of entitlement programs does not make them inherently different

    But you are right.. I should have stated that we should not have entitlements anyway

    Are they called Gun Stamps? Or Porn Stamps? Or Tattoo Stamps?

    No. They are called FOOD Stamps, and that is ALL that should legally be purchasable with them. FOOD.
