DWF should be sat on by a very fat person.


Are people supposed to be able to get change from food stamps in the US? If so, then maybe that would defeat their purpose, whatever that may be. Perhaps their real purpose is to humiliate the poor, so that the well off can sneer at them while out shopping, and call them lazy bums while feeling superior?

As for the med adjustment; perhaps DirtyHarry ate too much Celtic Sea Salt? :D

As for the idea of me being sat on by an American; is that one of those naughty fantasies that belongs in Bardak? :D

States use EBT cards now.

They're to be used like a debit card with no money changing hands, and hefty penalties for gaming the system. (It's still done with the cooperation of some retailers.......I heard.:rolleyes: )

From Texas (It seems to have a 'tough on loafers' reputation :

Aren't food stamps only for people who are on welfare?

No, that's a myth. Many working people both single and with families use food stamps to make ends meet. So do many people who are elderly or disabled. The truth is that 80 percent of the people who receive food stamps are not on welfare.

Get out of *that* one. :)



If one wants the right to make free choices, one had best get a job that allows that. The reason parents get to tell their kids what to eat is because the parents pay for it. If the taxpayers have to provide your food, we should be able to tell you what to eat. Want a pizza? Easy; support your self, it's your right to do so.

As moulderx points out, it's not just welfare recipients on food stamps...apparently a great many military families qualify for such public assistance as well.

You know you can buy about 25 pounds of pinto beans for around $10?

I worked in a supermarket chain and regularly accept 'food stamps' which were really gift certificates purchased by private charities and given to the needy. We forced them to buy only food, and only healthy food. They weren't given change either. The majority of these people seemed mentally impaired, often grunted to communicate, exhibited poor hygene and very beast like in behavior.

Killing people IS the better job...the military will feed and house you whether they pay you $7 an hour or not. :D

That's right! And because there will be no one in the private sector to pay the taxes, the military will not get paid at all, and all money will belong to the government to keep us at subsistence level whilst conquering all. Once we have all, we'll voluntarily kill ourselves off to the point that there will be no more competition for the resources and the wealthy can finally live in peace. :cool:

Except for those who choose not to "volunteer", because they have no interest in invading miscellaneous defenceless nations to steal their oil etc. :P

Those who chose to be born, volunteered. Don't want to serve? Don't get born. Fastest way to get out again is to die. When you get shot up, you do kitchen duty. You can run a potato peeler with one arm, ya pathetic slacker!

The wealthy fat capitalist pigs need their proles to feed them their surplus value, so how can the wealthy live in peace when they don't have a supply of surplus value to exploit? :shocknlau
