Alabama nightclub sponsors “Food Stamp Friday” party
HotAir ^ | March 30, 2012 | Tina Korbe

Flaunting food stamps almost seems to be a trend. First, Mr. EBT released his now-infamous rap. Shortly thereafter, girls followed suit with their own version. Now, a night club in Montgomery, Ala., is hosting its very own “Food Stamp Friday” party. On April 6, the Rose Supper Club in North Montgomery will offer a discounted cover charge — and free shots — to any patron who flashes a food stamp card at the door. Not surprisingly, some Montgomery residents aren’t happy about the way the party seems to glamorize a life on government assistance.

Just another confirmation that we are living the history of the end of the Republic. Disunion is coming.

Why not? After blowing $100 or so on Mega-millions, I’m sure there will be some left for booze since they don’t have to spend it on food (or housing, either).

Neil Young had a tune going “Welfare mothers make better lovers”. I have not verified this myself.

The ad says “Free Shots at the Door”.

I’m guessing they mean AFTER you leave.

If you’re shocked by this, you don’t know Montgomery; or Jackson MS, or Atlanta.

When this entire monstrosity comes crashing down and the gunfire slackens its pace, I’m going to sit back and laugh and laugh and laugh.

"Free shots at the door"?

I nominate George Zimmerman for Doorman.

So, we’ll remember LBJ for Vietnam, Nixon for Watergate, Clinton for Monica (if that wasn’t bad enough) Bush for the Iraq war, etc ...and Obama for Food Stamp Fridays.

Seriously — THIS is HIS legacy. How anyone would not be entirely MORTIFIED to have voted for, worked for, or supported this president is just beyond me.

Isn’t it ILLEGAL to use food stamps to purchase liquor?

(Possibly) the rest of the story:

An official with an Alabama nightclub says he wants a local rapper to change the name of a "Food Stamp Friday" promotion.

Richard Thomas of the Rose Supper Club in Montgomery Ala. says he rented the club to the rapper, but that was the extent of the nightclub's involvement with the concert.

Thomas says his phone has been ringing nonstop since media reports about the promotion. He says the concert may still happen if the name is changed and city officials are OK with the event.

Rapper Anthony Nettles says he named the event after 1 of his songs, "Food Stamp Living." He says he printed flyers before checking with the club's owners.

A food stamp card would provide discounted entry, but could not be used to purchase alcohol.

Yes, but is it illegal to buy a five dollar lemon - and get two free drinks with the garnish?
