[Jason] Greenslate, a 29-year-old La Jolla California surfer and musician who sings that he does not want a “motherfucking job” and has “fuck no” guilt about living on $200 of what he calls “free money ” — or what the government called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Benefits — while he avoids a job to hang out on the beach, sing and chase women.
“Wake up, go down to the beach, hang out with my friends, hit on some chicks, start drinking,” Greenslate said, describing his day to Fox News’ John Roberts in an interview for the channel’s “The Great Food Stamp Binge” hosted by Bret Baier.
“I surf everyday. It’s wonderful, man. Just get away from everything, clear your head. Get out with the boys. Have a good time.” Greenslate said.
Roberts reports that Greenslate has no fixed address, instead choosing the life of a beach bum staying with family, friends and girlfriends, living off them and $200 a month in benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which he uses to buy gourmet items at the grocery store.
“I don’t got a paycheck coming in so I qualify,” Greenslate told Roberts.
Fox News’ cameras joined Greenslate on one of his grocery shopping expeditions. With his Electronic Benefit Transfer card (EBT), the vehicle for food stamp benefits, Greenslate purchases sushi, lobster and coconut water.
“All paid for by our wonderful tax dollars,” he said with a smirk, leaving the store with his purchases.
“I’ll usually get sushi, but make it my own way, they didn’t have any good fish, so I just got the premade stuff,” he told Roberts after the grocery store visit, explaining his typical food buy.
Greenslate and his friends grilled the lobster along with chichken and hot dogs and shared the meat.
Greenslate has no intention of getting a job.
“That’s not the direction I’m going right now,” he said to Roberts, explaining his ambition is to be a rock star.
I used to think there’d be a limit to this but instead of revolution, we just see more of it every day. But if we can no longer hope that the pond scum of society will discard their infantile dependence, there is always the certainty that, sooner or later, the money to pay for all this will run out. The Greenwich Democrat’s designated intellectual, Dollar Bill, insists that that day will never come; the rich will just be squeezed harder to keep the cornucopia filled – I think DB’s reasoning capacity is as weak as his morals.
