    Do as you wish, but you do realize there is no way to turn in the store without turning in your brother. The card he used leaves a record that now certainly will be examined with a fine tooth comb. Chances are he's hit that store before. In fact any good investigator will flag his card and look at all other purchases.

After they had eaten I took my brother and his sons in my rental car, none of them have a car, to buy groceries which I gladly paid for. On the way back they asked me to stop at a store so i did. They came out with beer and cigaretts. Well needless to say i was pissed. I asked, how can you afford beer and cigaretts but can't afford food. My brother responded "the store accepted his food stamp card for beer and smokes, isn't that cool" I said hell no its not cool. My brother and his adult sons are on food stamps. So what am I to do. Turn in my brother and his sons.
    No you shouldn't turn in your brother and and his kids. You shouldn't rat family out unless it is something major like murder,rape, child molestation or some other serious crime. I do not think your other relatives and deceased sister would forgive you if you ratted your brother and nephews out.If you are going to turn in anyone then turn in the store that accepted the food stamp card for beer and smokes.After reading a few posts that would result in ratting out your brother and kids and therefor not a good idea.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Sometimes you have to man-up not weasel out. You can try and deflect this on me, but the truth is you would rather that the limp willie way out and narc your own flesh and blood out rather than confront and help him see the light...

    No, you're sounding like a liberal. I'm as liberal as all get-out and I make a policy of keeping the law and the government, cops and bureaucrats as far from my life as I can arrange it. Conservatives would advocate turning in welfare frauds without second thought.

    So true, but the liberal aspect I see in this is 'let the government handle my family's business', 'I don't want to take any responsibility in my family', so different from many of the self titled SgtRock's rants on other 'personal responsibility' issues.

    I thought CONs would say family takes care of family, not let the Gubmint handle my family...

    Your brother is committing welfare fraud, he's stealing money from every person in this country. If you don't report him then you are as guilty as he is.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Completely upside down. The fraud starts at the top of a corrupt government that won't enforce the laws for its favored groups.

    What will change if SgtRock turns in his family? NOTHING. Except SgtRock will no longer have a family.

    What the Hell for? It sounds to me like your brother really needed a drink and the store did him a favor. Walk away from this whole thing and never mention it again. Be glad the voters bought your American brother a drink. Usually the corrupt Obama government channels taxpayer money to America hating immigrants and foreigners.

    So, your answer is to do nothing because the Government won't do nothing. That's a good solution. I guess we won't be hearing from any conservatives in the future about welfare fraud.

    Are you able to understand that the thread is about personal ramifications in a specific, minuscule case?
