    I think WalMart clearly attempted to defraud an assistance program but nobody seems to be demanding the managers there be put in jail.

    2 parties working in league to defraud a third doesn't magically absolve one party of what they have done. Again, try harder

    Indeed, and was something I already made claear (maybe try reading). But No one is demanding the individuals on assistance be jailed either. What is being done is their assistance status is being removed. Which seems a just pairing with walmart eating the cost

    They approve the transaction when someone writes them a bad check, too.

With $84, it was routinely spent within the first week, and then I would buy the rest of my food out of my second paycheck each month, and I'd normally end up with bare cupboards by the end of the month.
    I've been there dude. I know you have health issues - but what I found was: Potatos, and 15-Bean-Soup (delicious with a little bit of sausage chopped in). Relatively cheap (at least, it was in NCarolina), contains most of what you really need to keep going, is filling, and lasts a long time. Don't know if you even like those, though.

    Exactly. You know how much you receive in benefits. When you plan your food budget around your food stamp allotment, you learn real quick how much you can afford. It's really easy to go over if you're not keeping track...
    True. But (and I'm not saying this about you, you can be painfully rational sometimes), I would wonder if our populace on food stamps doesn't have fairly heavy overlap with our populace that doesn't budget very well.

    To correct your analogy, they would have to know the checks were bad beforehand.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I usually go with canned tuna, box dinner (tuna or chicken), and frozen vegetables.

    You've got a point. I suppose what I'm trying to say is that there's a certain margin of error that can be assumed to be error, but the shenanigans in this story were obvious shenanigans.
