Food stamps are paying for trans-Atlantic takeout with New Yorkers using taxpayer-funded benefits to ship food to relatives in Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Welfare recipients are buying groceries with their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards and packing them in giant barrels for the trip overseas, The Post found.

American taxpayers . . . feeding the world.
Anyone checked if Kenya is being fed with EBT yet?
But we give billions in aid to these countries, why are the people receiving the money not doing anything to feed their people? can you say Swiss Bank account!
That’s it Travis! Go straight for the Jugular of truth.
Only actual government surplus food should be available to the “Needy”, ie; grain. milk, cheese etc. and only after passing a drug free test. Stop the damn ‘credit card crap’. They are eating higher off the hog than the people who are paying the taxes that support it.
Is your search busted?
All of this has to stop.
I’ve been saying this for years. Every time I’m in a grocery checkout line and see someone ahead of me who is well-dressed, buying prime cuts of meat, soda, junk food, expensive weird fruits that no one who has to actually pay for them buys, etc. whip out their EBT card, I just boil inside. Why the heck should I work hard so that these people can lounge around? Why should I subsidize them eating better than I do (not that I want soda or junk food)?
I don’t buy junk food. I grocery shop carefully, price wise. I buy non branded cereals, bran flakes, etc. We cook almost every meal we eat. Of course we pay for every piece of food that enters our mouths.
No less should be required of people on food stamps.

For those who don’t live in the multicultural zoo that is NYC it is widely believed that there are more illegal Jamaicans, Haitians, Dominicans, Russians, Irish and citizens of the former Soviet Union than legal emigrants from these same countries living in this city.
Last year, more White people died than were born in the USA.
I'd love to know if any other country has as many unauthorized freeloaders living within their sovereign boundaries as this country. I believe, especially with Ozero at the helm, that we are the laughingstock of the world as illegals and multi-generational welfare parasites grab our money with both hands while Americans suffer high percentages of unemployment.
How low we have fallen if anyone above the IQ level of imbecile pays any attention while Ozero and his minions attempt to distract us from real issues such as this with manufactured Trayvon the Crayon crap.
