    Bill Would Block Bridge Cards At Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores

    Bill Would Block Bridge Cards At Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores « CBS Detroit

    LANSING (WWJ) - Are Michigan welfare recipients using state funds to pay for strippers? One lawmaker says it’s a problem.
    Senator Rick Jones will propose legislation that aims to make sure Bridge Cards aren’t used to withdraw cash at strip clubs or liquor stores.
    Jones told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Zahra Huber it’s outrageous that people would spend that money on alcohol or strippers, instead of the basic necessities.
    “My family takes in foster children. A number of them have been food-deprived because their parents use their Bridge Cards to obtain drugs and alcohol,” Jones said. “I am shocked that anybody would take the cash portion that is meant to provide for children and use it in strip clubs and to buy booze.”
    I was most astounded by the last sentence in the article.

    Roughly 1.9 million Michigan residents – nearly 20 percent of the state’s population – are covered by the program
    And we were just told that employment is soaring and the economy is on the uptick.

    Maybe not in Michigan you have to remember most statistics are all the states averaged and if you haven't noticed it's different in other parts of the country. You would say the same thing in Canada if you only looked at the Maritimes but since all provinces are included it averages out. it's that or the fact your statistics like to skimp on things, your unemployment rate would be much higher if done the Canadian way.

    Yep, our unemployment rate is still through the roof, and ironically, the bluer the state, the higher it seems to be.

    While you and I probably would disagree on a lot of stuff, liberal there isn't liberal here. I'm sure you know that already.

    Well the Conservatives in Alberta are as close to Republicans as you can get and even though their economy is much better than the rest of Canada they are still spiraling into debt.

    Debt?

    I give you California, Illinois, Michigan, and New York. They'll never get remotely close to paying that off.

    Sure, all my local drug dealers take EBT cards along with M/C and Visa. The Heroin guy takes Discover.

    Strippers are employed.

    I read "Bridge Cards" and was picturing playing cards so was really freaking confused.
