In Massachusetts, where last year the Governor vetoed efforts to prohibit food stamps being used for pornography, piercings, tattoos, guns, manicures, etc, theyre now trying to discover whether the Tsarnaev brothers used them to pay for the Boston Marathon bombing:

Every day about 7-10 AM I usually make a run to WalMart to get food needs and to check out what ammo has been received the night before.
I pass about a half mile of Section 8 rental trailers on both sides of the roads. The TANF, SNAP, EITC, WICs inside are always there, usually two or more trucks/cars in their trailers - FAST ASLEEP. Even when I come back home, mostly too if I make an afternoon run. Cars always there, at least before Noon - they get grumpy if they have to get up before then. Not a job among them, BUT!
They are fierce individualists - nearly each has a big sign over their trailer door or on the ramshackle deck that says “Private Property. Keep Out!” Not far are the black plastic bags of trash they throw out on the lawn waiting for the city workers to come pick it up.
Theyre Chechens are coming home to roost.
well the terrorists didnt use their EBT cards at WalMart...
No EBT cards allowed for payment...
in the store or at the gas pumps..
They are allowed at the WalMarts I’ve visited.
not here in TN
Ill check out the WalMarts in Boston this summer while Im there...
I think different rules for different states.
If you get TANF, that is funds on your EBT card that can be withdrawn as cash at ATMs, at least here in Indiana.
One of the local tv stations got a file from the state showing amounts and locations of Indiana TANF ATM transactions:
Vegas, Puerto Rico, Disney (CA & FL), Hawaii, Nevada brothels, etc etc. were all on the list.
“Ill check out the WalMarts in Boston this summer while Im there...”
No you won’t. There are no WalMarts in Boston. They’re not politically correct.
So Boston is still “the wilderness” ???
are there any MacDonald’s ???
any sign of civilization at all ???
EBT cards are accepted at Walmart here in GA.
EBT is no longer even pretend “food stamps.” It is purely a cash subsidy.
“So Boston is still the wilderness ???”
As far as WalMart goes, its business plan does not conform to the socialist political elite’s (as well as the City Council’s) vision of society.
There are McDonalds, EBT cards have to be used somewhere.
Civilization? Your definition of civilization and the definition of civilization according to the ruling elite here in the People’s Republic are sure to clash.
Liberals. Their Chechens are coming home to roost.

There was a time when a Dem POTUS didnt want the stigma of being a food stamp POTUS but we live in new times, Obama wears it as a badge of honor: importing poverty and terrorists to here , giving them US citizenship to vote Dem, and food stamps as soon as they touch US soil, is now considered a successful presidency.
Victim Marxist Melessa Harris Perry did her whole Sunday show on poverty ‘in the rich USA’
Their conclusion to fix it: Get more of the poor to vote for more free stuff.
The 2013 implementation of Cloward Piven Government...
LOL! A buddy of mine who once worked the late shift in a convenience store used to relay tales of disgust over his regular customers who would use their food stamps to buy a quart of milk and a fresh $20 bill for the latest copy of Hustler.
Sheep. Once they are no longer needed for voting (soon) and as a threat (once we are disarmed) they will be cut off and left to starve.
