When I first saw this, I thought it was a joke then I found the places Facebook page and this article:
'Food Stamp Friday' At Alabama Rose Supper Club Grants Needy Reduced Cover Charge
So I posted in another thread before about the many abuses to our system. This just epitomizes it. This club is asking people to flaunt that they are taking advantage. Oh, and yeah they probably will show up with their brand new Androids and iPhones. White, black, or hispanic this is annoying to me. I have seen the abuses of the system several times, and despite abuse being down (according to government) since 1999, it is likely far more rampant.
Yet, I also know plenty that should be able to get it but don't qualify because they don't cheat the system. Something about it needs to be done to be properly effective. I believe the system has it's place, but supplementing cashiers with three kids with a discount to a bar so a guy can get her drunk and knock her up with another kid is NOT what it should ever be used for.
