    Yes I do, but how many personal, minuscule cases does it take to have a larger impact. Or do you now condone theft on a small scale.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    The larger impact is already here and your corrupt president is doing nothing but enjoying making it worse. When does he start leading the way?

    Re: Should I turn in my brother for food stamp fraud?

    I am really sorry to hear about your sister.


    I am not sure if I understand. Why wasn't he getting himself food with the food stamps and starving before you arrived? Was it because he didn't have a car and had no access to a grocery store, or were they spending all the stamps on beer for days??? That sounds ridiculous. Who would go that long without food if they had food stamps?

    I am so confused.

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.

    Conservatives also value family and if he values his then he won't turn them in over something minor.

    "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"

    Your confusion is understandable..
    It doesn't make sense, because it is not true.

    As I posted before, just exactly WHAT would he say about the store?

    "I heard this store accepts food stamps for cigarettes and liquor. In fact, my brother who's ON food stamps, told me he used them for just that purpose last week."

    If that's a call he wants to make, then I can see that happening . . . IF, when they ask for particulars, he would tell them he wants to remain anonymous and stuck to it. That way, his conscience is clear and he isn't turning in his brother. Whom, if you think about it, he never actually SAW do anything. His brother could have been lying. I mean he wanted beer and cigs and had just told his brother they were broke so that his brother bought them food. What if he wasn't broke? He wouldn't want his brother to know he lied . . .

    If one doesn't see it with their own lyin' eyes? I don't think one should report. Most especially their own family. There's something more to this story. He and his brother don't get along . . . he doesn't approve of his do-nothing lifestyle . . . something. And those things aren't well served by ratting him out. JMVHO.

    Our poster is on notice now . . . the guy's either unethical or he lies like a rug. In either case, I think he just saved himself future money. Maybe he should send a thank-you note.

    Oh, for heaven's sake. I can't imagine why you'd think he was lying. And, if he is, what the hell difference does it make? Jesus Louise.
