I’d assume this is a phony (Update: nope – it’s real), but Dollar Bill sent it along with a note of contrition, so who knows?

    Not everyone who gets food stamps is poor. I was speaking to a millionaire farmer a number of years ago and he explained how it works: every year the government gave him money to not plant part of his land and he took that money to buy more land that the government gave him money to not plant which he used to buy more land and so on. The department of agriculture also gave him food stamps. Why? Just part of the program.
    But before you get all upset at farmers, for most of them, the deck is stacked against them, and it’s likely they’ll soon be nothing left but big agra. GMOs anyone?

    Christopher – puleeeeeeeeeze! Mountain Doooo has never passed my lips!

    Steak and lobster, however, are another (yummy) story.

    “…[D]rinkers of Mountain Dew and some other citrus-flavored drinks are also getting a dose of a synthetic chemical called brominated vegetable oil, or BVO.

    Patented by chemical companies as a flame retardant, and banned in food throughout Europe and Japan, BVO has been added to sodas for decades in North America. Now some scientists have a renewed interest in this little-known ingredient, found in 10 percent of sodas in the United States.

    After a few extreme soda binges—not too far from what many gamers regularly consume—a few patients have needed medical attention for skin lesions, memory loss and nerve disorders, all symptoms of overexposure to bromine. Other studies suggest that BVO could be building up in human tissues, just like other brominated compounds such as flame retardants. In mouse studies, big doses caused reproductive and behavioral problems…”

    But I suppose that’s better than drinking aborted fetuses: ‘Obama agency rules Pepsi use of cells derived from aborted fetus ‘ordinary business’’
    “LARGO, FL, March 5, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Pepsi Company, which is set to release the new product Pepsi Next in the coming weeks, is facing a more robust boycott as pro-life activists protest the company use of cells derived from an aborted fetus in flavor-enhancing research. But Pepsi has succeeded, with help from the Obama Administration, in keeping its controversial operations from consideration by its shareholders.

    In a decision delivered Feb 28th, President Obama’s Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that PepsiCo’s use of cells derived from aborted fetal remains in their research and development agreement with Senomyx to produce flavor enhancers falls under “ordinary business operations.”…” http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/obama-agency-rules-pepsi-use-of-aborted-fetus-is-ordinary-business

    Personally, I think I’ll stick with my radioactive milk:

    How about all the people that take their welfare or unemployment checks and buy scratch off and lottery tickets with them. And cigarettes and alcohol. Infuriating.

    P.S. It was his girlfriend’s EBT card and they were selling the stuff at 1/2 off for the cash.

    If he hadn’t dropped that receipt he would have continued to get away with it though since it’s not illegal to use the card extravagantly but it is illegal to resell what you buy on the card.

    Believe it or not, here in bankrupt California, the state advertises on the radio for food stamps.

    Heard an add while driving the other day and wanted to open my door and fall out. Some lame a$$ state agency…paid for with tax payers money….

    How crazy is that? The message was something about “eating properly and not letting your children go hungry – apply today for California food stamps”

    It was on a rock station.
