HAVERHILL — Shortly after police charged Richard Chase with selling illegal drugs, they said they searched his apartment and found $15,000 in cash, hundreds of Oxycodone pills, a police scanner and a list of area police scanner frequencies.

Before he was arrested, Chase used his government-provided EBT card to buy food at a convenience store, police said. When he was arrested, police found the Electronic Benefits Transfer card — otherwise known as food stamps — on him along with a receipt for his purchases. Chase told police “you got me” and said he’s been unable to find a job.

Seeing this individual had an EBT card...is he then part of Obama’s “47%” with or without the $15K???

I mean, he had to be rather destitute to have an EBT card, right?

Yet another symptom of the Welfare State out of control. And a lot of people sell their EBT card to dealers to buy drugs.

If Obama had a son...and I’m serious. I fully expect to be reading about his daughters “escapades” in the coming years.

Until I saw the pic I thought the EBT card may have been part of his cover to look poor.
It’s looks a though that intelligence factor is not present.

The War On Drugs: supplying profit opportunity to the worthless for 4 decades. Too bad so many of those worthless (not apparently including this guy) use those profits to increase their ability to prey on the innocent.

The EBT card is a massive fraudulent waste of taxpayer dollars. It is a system that in run unchecked and abuse is rampant. Every taxpayers ought to be angered at how this abuse is allowed to happen.

Talking to my libinlaw years ago, I was telling her about something I’d just read in Sowell’s “Intellectuals” book.

Me: Liberals don’t care how much corruption, fraud, and waste are in any of their social programs, as long as everyone gets covered that needs it.

LiL: That’s wrong! We absolutely DO care that there is fraud and waste in the programs. [two second pause] But it’s more important that everyone that needs help gets it.

Me: That’s what I just said.

LiL: [pause] Let me think about that.[pause] It just sounded so mean when you said it.

War on drugs!
Everyone knows the EBT card is a massive black market operation!
Scratch my back I will Scratch yours!
The ones with cash purchase food goods @ a 50% devaluation.
The cash is then turned into drugs.
It’s a never ending cycle.
