Lobster-Eating Food Stamp Recipient Refuses Hannity's Job Help
Fox News Insider ^ | March 13, 2014 | Fox News Insider

Posted on 03/14/2014 7:37:15 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

The saga of a surfing, lobster-eating food stamp recipient continued on "Hannity" as the 29-year-old refused Sean's assistance in finding a paying job.

You may remember Jason Greenslate from his interview with Bill O'Reilly's producer Jesse Watters. Greenslate was first captured on camera by Fox News while purchasing lobster with taxpayer-funded food stamps.

Hannity pointed out that Greenslate rides around in a Cadillac Escalade and frequents strip clubs, all while receiving government assistance and not working at a job that actually pays.

How does this clown afford a Cadillac Escalade? Drug sales?

I don’t have a job nor do I want one either. A couple of weeks ago, I was offered one and I didn’t even ask for it.

If I were a liberal, I’d be offended but I’m a retired, conservative person and just said, no thanks.

Yep.

Playing by the rules is for suckers.

That's Obama's new normal.

I'd like to teach my three sons that working hard and being responsible is the way to success, but in Obama's America, I'd just be lying to them.

He’s an artist.

Nancy Pelosi says he doesn’t have to work at a job that doesn’t suit him (also known as “job lock”). And now you’re paying for his health care as well.

eliminate all food stamps (unless preg./babies/kids, strictly regulated) for all..
except beans and rice. IF you tired of both, get a job/better job, it's that simple.

I met this Dude’s father on a ski lift in the Sierras in the winter of ‘74-’75. He worked just enough in the spring shoulder season to buy a new surfboard, then went on the dole all summer. In the fall, he worked just enough to buy a new pair of skis and a season pass. Come winter, he went on the dole again.

Dude was lucky his dad didn’t get shoved off the lift onto the rocks below. I was SO tempted to give him the needed push. I felt like a sucker ever after.

There are a good amount of lower middle class folks who do work...but the temptation has to be there. I live in a nice (so far) apartment complex around a little lake very close to Atlanta. I've lived here 10 years. In the last few they have opened it up to 8A's...wow...amazing how fast a nice place can go downhill.

Sadly...where I’m living (and will move once my lease expires)...it’s not so much the parents (who likely stay inside all day)...it’s their damned trashy kids. By the time they are 8 years old they are painting up the place when they learn how to spell (four letter words) and have attitudes. Their fat mommas tell them to take out the trash and they just throw it in the lake instead of walking the extra 20 steps to the dumpster.

Sounds like the couple I was behind in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago. Middle of the day (I’m retired) during the week. She’s flashing around a beautiful Coach wallet ($150+ for those that don’t know) that caught my eye. They paid for their groceries with an EBT card. I wanted to choke them both right then & there. Neither looked sick or unable to work and were probably in their mid-30s.

During a later interview with the Huffington Post, Greenslate added: ‘I don’t feel like a bum. I pull hot chicks, drive nice cars, dress nice and wear the most baddest jewelry in the world.’

Previously, there were stipulations that food stamp recipients with no family could only receive food stamps for three months every three years unless they had part time employment or were involved in a jobs program. The goal was to help people who couldn’t make ends meet, not supplement income so people could surf and drink beer.

Many of those types of restrictions were eliminated when President Barack Obama signed the 2009 stimulus bill, which allows people like Greenslate to abuse the system.

They may not be worth passing on, but they sure as heck get passed on.

Not having to go to work every day gives you plenty of time to "pass your genes on".

Conversely, working hard, being responsible, coming home tired, leave you precious little time or energy to "pass your genes on".

If you've not seen the movie "Idiocracy", I highly recommend it as a future based documentary of America.

shut up — you are a complete moron who has no scope of the reality of what is going on out there. Due to no fault of my own I lost an excellent job working for a defense contractor because I refused to illegally mischarge work to a charge number I knew it was illegal to use. I have 2 degrees one in computer science. I ultimately lost all my savings trying to pay mortgage. No one wants to hire someone 50.+ I lost my house and nearly all possessions, and eventually the car was seized because I could not pay repair bills. for 1.5 years I slept on a couch in the church hall.

I then had a job/ lost because an a-hole of a boss wouldn’t give me a 10 buck spiff I was owed — pulled a 600 dollar advertising sale on a cold call and money paid right on debit — literally the difference between me eating at all that day or getting to work next day.He said “oh, I changed that spiff and forgot to say. I objected and was fired. ALL I qualified for besides unemployment was 69 a month ebt (no kids)—and i was grateful — until a friend took me in I had no one and no whereto go or to cook anything. so stfu. You know nothing the hell obama has put good people though — I HOPE it happens to you some day— because with stupid people that is the only way they learn - by suffering. and don’t suggest I become a 58 year old long distance truck driver - a woman my age with severe anemia is not a good candidate - and don’t think of prattling about lack of kids or husband. My husband died of brain tumor. jackasses like lobster boy ruin it for all.

That guy looked like he stepped out of the 60s. Great interview by Sean.

I saw that interview when I was at a friend's business. He owns a rooming house and I was fixing his computer there. 2 of the residents (both working part time so they get food stamps) said that guy is wrong.

Both of those people said if someone offer them a job, they would take it. Another guy, who lives there said it his right to eat lobster and he needs to practice surfing and his music.

Your story is sad and compelling, but on the original point of the thread, would you have taken the $80,000 per year job Hannity offered? I hope you would have.

The entire point of this article is to point out the rampant mooching on the system as an endemic problem. Are there people really suffering? Of course. Does the system keep people within its structure? Either by removing the will to work, or stymieing the economic growth, you bet it does.

if i was an able bodied male - hell yes I’d love to boot lobster boy right up the rear end. I’m a little pissed too because if hannity Had gone down to the unemployment line he’d have had plenty of takers — it’s like he looked for a poster boy for douchebags to tar and feather everyone on food stamps. see? 1 cheats - ergo they all cheat — btw if you are homeless but do get unemployment i highly recommend joining a kroc center — for 30 bucks a month I could sower everyday and swim and exercise too — they saved my sanity when I was still sleeping on the church couch.
