    I have made no claim about the seriousness of the charge. You have

    So you're the one with the burden of making your case.

    I'll wait

    Oh, and about your "mistake" Here's what you said about that:

    OK, you win.

    Koenig says Mills, in handing down the sentence, seemed to imply the most grievous of Wright's crimes were defrauding the state to receive welfare and tax evasion, not the prostitution counts.

    But I'm still a better person than you are and I have a shirt.

    Yeah, because that's how we know who the best people are - by the t-shirts they're wearing

    Lmao! Good one. The thing I've noticed about many posters on here, once they fail to make a case they resort to personal attacks.

    TBF, Speckle's a decent person, if a little tetchy at times. But I believe in giving slack to those of us who are more....ummm...."experienced?"

    Re: The Free Lunch

    Honestly, did you take me seriously? Did you see a personal attack? Like, don't you people have any sense of humor?

    I';m quite capable of being insulting. In fact, I'm very good at it. I don't do it because I believe in civil discourse. I'm perplexed that this wasn't obvious. When somebody notes your avatar is not wearing a shirt - you're supposed to realize that this is hardly a real attack. Or do you view "hogwash" as a genuine insult?

    Tetchy? Well, I'll be hornswoggled.

    Would it make you feel better if I told you that I never take you seriously?

    and to think that you said I have no sense of humor....why, I never!!

But how can you police that situation?
    so having kids dismisses the parents for wrong or illegal behavior so the message you are sending is as long as you have a child go ahead and behave wrongly or illegally. it is also an encouragement to have children

    actually he's one of my favorite posters. He has gift for humorous turn of phrases. But I've noticed he turns it off as quickly as turning it on. OscarB is funny too. Really enjoy his. I enjoy yours too, you seem to be well informed and intelligent as many here are. Have a good weekend. Gotta fire that grill up before the rain returns

Another reason i feel we shouldnt go back to paper stamps is that there are a lot of hard working single parents below the Fed Poverty Level who depend on SNAP to supplement their food budget. Why subject them to the humiliation that paper stamps cause?
    The purpose of public assistance to ensure someone doesn't go hungry. Humiliation shouldn't even be concern with those who administer the program. The EBT card system has allowed what should be a program to help those in need into a joke that is soaked in fraud. The moron who resides as the Mass Governor had the nerve to complain when there was legislation being discussed to restrict where EBT cards can be used. Places like nail salons and the like. The tool had the nerve to actually, "They should be allowed there, what if the benefits recipient has a job interview."

    But I'll agree to forgo the food stamps altogether if they bring back state run pantry that those on assistance can pick their weekly sustenance. That way you ensure they're getting the required nutrition.
