    It's because the racist Libbos assune it was just black folks involved.

    How does that strike you as an apt analogy when walmart a)knew there was an issue with the system and b) allowed these purchases to go through anyway? Honestly, what type of totally inept attempt at logic is this?

    Did youvread far enough into the thread to see where I didn't let wal mart off the hooj
    No, I saw you post numerous times in a manner that made them sound as victims, as you just did above ...

    the way you're excusing fraudulent behavior by peopke who are already getting free ****?
    You mean the people who I have called for being prosecuted for welfare fraud? Maybe next time you can try to stumble through this while making some sense

    Walmart is damned, either way
    lol, no, numerous other stores did the exact opposite of what walmart did

    while you people give a free pass, at the most lip service, to the welfare classers that participated in this embaressibg behavior.
    dude, you just cast walmart as some victim here, as opposed to an entity who was trying to swindle the govt, as well. Me, I'm consistent. I think the welfare moops and walmart are guilty. it's not my fault that you and others are so partisan that you feel a need to excuse one side or another

    other stores did exactly that and no riot ensued. And if one did ensue, that's why we have things like police, k-9 units and fire hoses


    Don't lie...you would have condemned walnart for that too
    unlike you, mate, I can entertain complex ideas and reason out both sides are at fault. So don't project your intellectual failings on me

    People buying food at an extreme discount? Not sure why you would assume only "hungry" people would look to save money.

    I've been approached more than a couple times to buy $100.00 worth of groceries for $50.00. In my experience, people will exchange food stamps for pretty much anything and do.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

No way are most of them they making $26/hr or roughly more than $50,000.00 a year even in construction, that is a very rare exception. And most of the time the mother is a stay at home mom. Then taking it at the 133% fpl eligibility in most states and on average Hispanic families have about 3-4 children and a retired parent or two living with them and they more than qualify. You know a co-worker, I live it.
    This is a middle class neighborhood. The kids are well dressed, new trucks and suv's line the streets. And the many of the men are not just hourly labor, they are contractors too. In addition, I personally know Hispanic landscape workers that make better than 50K (and they earn every penny). Many in the trades work a lot of overtime. Usually, it is the wife that applies hiding marital status and understating income. I also can attest to knowledge of a two income familiy, with a combined income of 110K, who freely admits and laughs about using food stamps fraudulently. "Everyone does it" is what she said.

    On another note, $33,000 is modest in today's economy, but one can buy their own food and shelter on that in most areas of the country.

    hell, you'll find people setting up shop right in front of the grocery store selling stuff like steaks, and some smaller markets will directly trade cash

    1) why would I feel a need to lie to you? I don't care what you think

    2) You can find numerous posts in this very thread where I clearly blame the moops and walmart. So if you could manage some higher brain function for a moment, you could tease out that your premise makes no sense

    3) stop assuming people are like you and can't look at things honestly and with intelligence
