Gofer, I saw the same thing happen in a grocery store directly across the street from the government agency that takes care of food stamps. This was in Portsmouth, VA. I was in line and had $20.00 on me to be some groceries. The woman in front of me was dressed extremely nice and had a bunch of groceries. She had steaks and beer and wine. The cashier told her she couldn't pay for the beer and wine with the food stamps(WIC) so she literally wipped out a roll of money and paid for it separately. She then went outside and got into her WELFARE CADILAC. I had a job in the family business. We had 5 furniture stores, and couldn't afford what she had. If you don't have anything and a minority, you can live better than a hardworking person.
