I don’t know if all unemployed people live desirable lives, but I have repeatedly observed a phenomena last year or two.
My wife works full time, I am retired. So I do most of the grocery shopping. She makes the list, I buy the items. We look for sale items. My cart is rarely over 1/4 full at checkout. Then I see a cart ahead of me with cart fully loaded with groceries. Then they whip out an EBT card to pay! Many times the stuff they bought exceeds the EBT card balance. Then they pay the rest of bill in cash. Invariably these people look overweight.
I have no problem feeding the poor who can’t afford to buy enough food. But obviously food stamps are being handed out with abandon.
“Then I see a cart ahead of me with cart fully loaded with groceries. Then they whip out an EBT card to pay!”
I’ve seen the same thing; they’ll have welfare-bonus children pushing additional carts like draft animals. One of the last things keeping white Americans voting Democrat is the fact that they don’t want blacks to stop aborting their children.
I saw the same thing yesterday. Several sticks of sausage, four boxes of Velveeta, two bottles of Pace hot sauce, several boxes of wheat thins and some other crackers, five or six cans of salted nuts and out comes the EBT card. Can you say Super Bowl party?
After he swipes the card, the cashier asks the guy "Do you need any extra cash?" Guy gets $40.00 cash to probably buy beer at the liquor store down the street. Just sickening.
I was in Wal Mart yesterday.
First of month mad house.
Carts were overflowing, but not a single person around me was paying for any of the food themselves.
Had money for other thing they were buying, but not food.
When I paid with cash the checker looked at me like I was crazy.
