    And what does that have to do with the price of rice in china? A stove isn't a food item either, but I'm assuming that the people on food stamps have purchased one. And pots too. And silverware. And cups.

    You can't spend food stamps on a non food item.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That's right, when a store is selling Big Shot drinks for 99 cents and a bottle of water is a $1.29, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which one the stamp collector is going to purchase.

    If they have, then they're guilty of welfare fraud.

    Well if they don't care, then that's all the more reason not to incentivize their unhealthy behavior by having the government pay for their soda.

    Umm never. You don't have to buy it in fancy bottles. Do you have a sink in your house?

    I can't. This is important.

    I would rather see them weened off welfare.

    Uhh sounds like a pretty good argument to not let them buy the soda with the food stamps. Maybe you should figure out which side of the argument you're on, instead of just vacillating back and forth, all the while ranting about Teh Evil Libruhls.

    Cool. Not the subject of this thread though.

    Did you really just channel the John Bircher from Dr. Strangelove in all seriousness? Really?

    All I'm saying, is that you wanted dependency; you got it. You only have yourselves to blame.
