Lingerie Store in Louisiana Accepts EBT Cards as Payment

This was an ongoing problem even before EBT cards. When food stamps were like paper money a guy walks into the convenience store and buys a candy bar with a $10 stamp, takes the change next door to the liquor store and buys a bottle of cheap vodka. The EBT card just eliminates the candy bar.

What you just said is a fact. When I worked at a convenience store this young gal would walk to the store with her kid in tow, buy some milk, get the change and keep repeating buying a little her and there until she had enough "money" (change given) to buy a bottle of cheep Mogen David. I made me sick, knowing that the little girl was going to have to nurse her drunk momma come morning. The little girl was all of 3.

My wife got her first degree as a Social Worker..When she worked for the Colorado welfare office, one particular "client" came in monthly to pick up her check. She got several K per month because of all her kids. They were dressed poorly, and she had expensive clothing, jewelry, handbags...all paid for by Colorado taxpayers...She made a killing. her name was Keneisha, if that conveys anything..

They are everywhere and come in a variety of names. Leeches is the name they have in common.
