Hope and change we can all appreciate... one way or another.

Don't know if I should laugh or be mad.

Now that's a change I CAN believe in. YES I CAN!!!

My BIL (w/ 4 degrees from GA Tech) is on unemloyment and collecting bennies from AZ. He's receiving food stamps from GA, and I think he's living in SC now looking for work. How's that for some shiite?

You have no idea. I worked in a grocery store for two years before college. We CONSTANTLY caught people buying baby formula/milk/bread/etc with their WIC checks and Peach cards and then coming back a day later to return it without a receipt so they could then purchase lotto/tobacco/alcohol.

One woman was "smart" and went to different stores to return/buy. She came in one day and returned $160 worth of infant formula. We got her on tape and turned her in.

Huh. You know, I was just wondering the other day why the shelves behind the lotto/customer service counter were full of formula... unfortunately, now I know.

if they wanted to reform the system, doing these things would be a felony with 30 days hard labor as first offense. You could pay for a special squad to enforce it with all the money you would save from the leeches.
