    alright. good to hear
    my suspicion is you are also not a food stamp recipient
    go deal with your first world problems while we discuss something of importance to the underclass - taking away the food stamps of many who did nothing wrong
    You're pretending like WALMART is the only place - in any town - that takes WIC, Foodstamps (etc etc etc).

    It's NOT.

    I WAS a food stamp recipient and I didn't even have a freaking car - I know that ONE STORE isn't the only OPTION. GAH! No one starves to death because Walmart's ****ing system goes the **** down.

    I suppose, now, you're going to argue that the thieves who abused the system shouldn't get their food stamps taken away.

    From the original article:

    Under Jindal’s new directive, recipients will lose benefits for one year, two years or permanently, depending on how many prior violations they have on their record.

    The Jindal administration will start with the worst cases first, according to Suzy Sonnier, secretary of the state Department of Children and Family Services.

    “We must protect the program for those who receive and use their benefits appropriately according to the law,” Sonnier said in a prepared statement, according to The Advocate “We are looking at each case individually, addressing those recipients who are suspected of misrepresenting their eligibility for benefits or defrauding the system.”

    As someone who collects food stamps-- and needs them to survive-- this absolutely sickens me and I think it's a goddamned shame that criminal charges are not being pursued.
    being former military and having seen such things occur before in govt payroll and benefits,i agree action should be taken,if not criminal action,then all money being paid back.

    in the military lets say an e-1 makes 1500 a month for theoretical purposes.one month he receives 150000 instead of 1500.he then spends all of it like its his.in the military which is a govt agency,they would either imprison him,or force him to pay the vast bulk of his remaining checks,even extending his contract to ensure he pays it back,or even both.in that scenario of overpayment,he was required to report such a gross error.had it been just 100 bucks or so,the govt would have blamed it on itself and charged the soldier slowly,but in such a gross miscalculation,the soldier knew better.


    in the case of food stamps,people knew better,it was not a slight overpayment that could be mistaken,it was a no limit,in which every person should have and did know,and knowingly abused.

    I'm sure you will continue to get food stamps. Don't worry about it.

    Oh my! I can't believe you are suggesting that a company was trying to defraud the government out of millions of dollars and a few poor people were defrauding the government of hundreds of dollars in steak dinners.

    This sounds kind of familiar. Throw the poor criminals in jail and throw away the key. Ask the rich guy for large campaign donations.

    Those who took advantage should be punished; I agree. But Walmart corporate instructed its employees to let it happen, and if the corporation is going to write off the losses, then what's to be done...and who's going to do it?

    BTW, I don't know whether you've ever been to Mansfield, Louisiana, but it's very, very small, and my bet is that Walmart is the only big-box store in town.

    the outage was for 2 hours ... Seems you're making an emotional appeal that has little to do with the subject and solely deals with trying to throw a pity party to aid your defense of the unrelated matter of people trying to openly exploit the EBT system.

    I have fasted for 4 days. I didn't die. I even think I could have went a few more days but I was getting hungry. I'm sure you could have waited a few hours for the system to come back up. Am I wrong?

    Yes. There is a magic number that differentiates between petty larceny and grand theft. I bet many of these transactions were on the high side of petty larceny.

    Some sub-cultures are very aware of the law in important matters like this.
