Then I watch as the total comes to 500+ dollars, and out comes the EBT card thing, the cashier then said,"Ma'am your non food stamp total is 10 dollars and some change, the lady paid with cash. I paid for my 8 bucks worth of ramen and Hamburger helper and walked out to my car. And who do I see but the woman in front of me getting into a BMW X5 SUV.

    It was at tthat moment that I realized i was eating junk and had a used car and this woman has plenty of food and a luxury car, and I was the one serving the country that she was taking advantage of.

    PETERBOROUGH — Jackie R. Whiton of Antrim had been a six-year employee at the Big Apple convenience store in Peterborough until a single transaction sent her job up in smoke.

    The store clerk was fired after she refused to take a customer’s Electronic Balance Transfer card to pay for cigarettes.

    Whiton said a young man came in to the store to buy two packs or cigarettes on May 29. When she asked him for his ID, he handed her his EBT card.

    EBT cards are used for both food and cash assistance programs. There are two types of cards: one can only be used for food. The other can be spent on anything and used just like a debit card.

    Whiton said she did not think EBT cards could be used to purchase cigarettes and refused to sell to him. The two “had a little go-around” as the line got longer behind him, said Whiton.

    “I made the statement, ‘do you think myself, that lady and that gentlemen should pay for your cigarettes?’ and he responded ‘yes,’ ” Whiton said.

    I remember that well. Because I didn't have to go to a shelter, I wasn't around when they were handing out $2,000.00debit cards to each individual. Some households got as much as $16,000.00! The casinos and stip clubs were jammin with all the FEMA money. How about the story of a group that were living in public housing that complained that there wasn't enough steak being served by a chruch that took them in right after the hurricane. The chruch sent them packing the next day.

    I'm not defending anyone....this an example of someone steeling, not the misuse of wellfare. The fact that they are steeling a few hundred or maybe thousands from the government to purchase steaks and resell them is no different that some defense contractor selling a hammer or toilet set to the government for millions.

    Both are wrong but they are both theif. The intent of wellfare is to help people that need help just like the intent of military contracts are to defend us. The fact that a bad person takes advantage of them is not the programs fault.

    steeling: bracing oneself... Theif: don't you mean theft? You defend bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior... It's all bad, just like your attempt at spelling.

    I actually agree with Bill that you need to say what you mean and mean what you say. I was a little confused as to what you were actually saying also.

    so much irony here ^^^......and as for value, I find great entertainment value in EVERYONE'S point of view, never been a fan of censorship or muzzling someone just because I don't agree with them, because I always have the choice to move on, or respond,despite their ignorance

    Sambo, I just have to ask and I'm not trying to be hatefull or anything. My spelling is bad anymore so, please, excuse that. Where and when did you go through school ? What was your highest grade level that you completed. I changed schools in the 9th grade and it was an eye opener. I had previously attended public school and then started school in a larger church run school. It took me all evening and part of each night to complete my English home work in the new school. Public school English classes were a joke but being a 'kid" I had no idea what I had been missing. Thanks to Mrs. Welch part of my ignorance was "cured".
