    No one who is on the program is going to starve to death when one store experiences a short term technical glitch.

    I've gone to the store and the system is down which prevents me from using check or credit - it was a nuisance, but nothing more. By the next day, they had it fixed.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Noted, and dismissed.

    I have no idea what the political leanings are of the thieves who stole from the government - liberals like to point out frequently that white people receive the largest portion of foodstamps in the country and it's well known that poor white people generally vote conservative. So I guess you're accusing me of using my political views to vilify people with the same political views, is that it? Because you did say, very clearly, that I must hate all people on assistance - you were categorically sure you knew everything about me in that regard, right?

    Hate to disappoint you, but wrong is wrong regardless of what political flag someone carries and some issues have zero to do with politics and/or ideology. You can't slot me so easily to fit your narrative.

    I'm not sure how that is relevent when you issue revolves around the fact they get assistence. Just like Deuce's revolves around it being walmart

    So I guess you're accusing me of using my political views to vilify people with the same political views, is that it?
    No, I was quite clear about you vilifying people on assistance ...

    Well, good to know you can actually read and comprehend something posted and don't have to rely totally upon your made up version of things.

    No - because it's a chance to paint a Republican as abusive towards the poor.

    Thats a stupid claim CP. 99% of people, regardless of politics, will support this move.
    well, we're going to get a chance to find out.

    In the original thread the overwhelming majority tended to view one side or the other being totally at fault, with that being almost universally dependent on their political lean. It was actually rather comical to watch

    He'll be dubbed a "white" Indian.
