    I'm beyond tired of liberals comparing welfare to the military. Welfare is for individual assistance and regardless if it is offered to everyone or a few that is always the case. The military is different. The military exists to protect the country itself from the threats out of outside aggression. There is no amount of greater gain for one party over another nor is there any reason to expect that it exists for the benefit of one while not for the another.

So they don't pay taxes. But sure do live high on the Hog and others misery.
    Why is the fact that they were black relevant?

Computers are good at that kind of thing, hardly any human intervention is required. If you start seeing variances, you address them. Stores which are "charging" the cards and just giving cash back ought to be pretty easy to detect and the owners should be charged with credit card fraud.

    It's not hard to do if you've got the balls to do it.
    So if they can't get additional income, and the EBT cards control their purchases, how are people supposed to better themselves and get out of poverty. Strict control of welfare recipients doesn't foster greater independence or responsibility. It just creates another peon for the state.

    I stop on the south side of Lawton, Ok several times a month to use the ATM in Discount Foods. I have yet to buy a thing in that store. The ATM is close to the Hot Wok where I do spend cash for quick chinee take-out. The OP does a smear by proxy. No real proof how much money is used in the sin locations. More a case of the ATM in the location was used. I'm not about to say NO fraud occurs, just smear hit pieces like this are pot stirrers for those who already are in the Hallelujah Chorus.

    Sounds like a bit of right wing whine over a problem all ready with a fix in the pipeline. Is the far right whiners THAT hard up for something to attack social spending during the lead-up to the next round of fighting over where the cuts come from and how deep the cuts go?

    MMC- most of your OP was just poo flinging, the last bit about food stamps is not how it is here in SW OK. 'Food Stamps' are far more likely to go for fiddy cent on the dollah than double face value. Double face value just doesn't make sense-

    not that a partisan hack piece needs to...
    It's nice that you have it within your monthly welfare budget to plan for a few visits a month to the Hot Wok?

    I am beyond tired of a few radical right whiners never seeing the massive outflow of 'taxpayer' money to cheats and frauds who are supposedly 'defending the nation'.

    I am a vet of Service to the Country I KNOW what the military is SUPPOSE to be doing. Trying to dress up one of the poorest audited parts of Gubmint in some sacred robes is beyond tacky. Using the noble ideal of defense for our nation to cover massive fraud should have the noble right outraged beyond words. Oh wait, those cheats and frauds vote the same way you do... silly me.

    One thing I'd like the radical right fraud hounds to latch onto are all the defense contractors who owe taxes, have been repeatedly fined but still get huge 'defense' contracts.

    Exactly. It's not surprising.

    Welfare rations should only cover the necessities.

These types of jobs could be the ones assigned to people on assistance, thereby pushing jobs away from illegals/immigrants and giving them back to Americans.
    Yeah, there is probably a lot of fruit picking jobs unfilled in New York City, Chicago, Boston and on and on. It's been my experience that fruits and vegetables are grown on farms rather than in cities. I've been to most big cities in the US and damned if I can recall seeing a lot of vegetable farms. Of course we could round up all these welfare recipients and ship them to Dixie and have them pick cotton. Maybe we could get you to supervise them, Massa Gipper. Ain't nothin' quite like supervising anyone doing anything that they don't want to do.

    Nope, i'm not going to google it, you made the claim, so show me. I already know the answer but I wanted to see if you were willing to display some integrity and admit you are WRONG almost entirely on what you claimed.
