I know the gov't cannot just stop giving stuff out, and they will not because they will kill, rob and steal because they are entitled. Is there anyway they could at least limit it to 2 kids and the rest is on them? God forbid they have to pay for what they make.

i think she made the original as a joke/ slap at the people that collect welfare.

she actually sounds in her explanation of the videos a little too intelligent to have headed down that road. she also mentions satire.

but it is about damned accurate, now isn't it?

I have a question.

If they are paying for day care, that would indicate that you can't watch them for a certain period of time throughout the day, such as when you go to work, right?

If you're working, then why do you need EBT?

It used to be just pathetic and make me mad, but now I just

No point in fighting it. It's the country we live in now-a-days.

With all the technology we have today, why can't someone figure out how to restrict EBT cards so that only necessary items can be purchased? I can see the basics: meat, dairy, eggs, diapers, TP, etc. but honestly how can anyone argue that EBT cards should be used at fast food places? I know that arguing this topic is futile but it still twists my colon.

It gets worse, I know of someone who gets 900 a month on their ebt. They use a little more than half than sale the rest. It's tax free an they give a 1 in ebt for .75 of real cash.
You can buy red bull with it, I witnessed it first hand.

It makes me sick to even think about.

You can get mad or even.
A neighbor and myself are selling and financing them cars.
Our retail is about 150% of what our cost is, we get our initial investment back as the down payment, finance the rest at the max interest rate the state allows.
We repo the first time they miss their bi-weekly note, they then have 10 days to pay the note in full or secure other means of financing.
8 out of 10 can't refinance or pay the balance so we end up with a car we have no real money in. It goes back on the lot and we do it again.
So far we are way ahead of what the government taxes this business to support them.
It's sort of like getting back what we have paid in over the years and the return on investment beats the h*** out of the return we were getting in the stock market.
Those with a moocher's mentality aren't really that hard to out think.

She's actually AGAINST EBT. This is a mock of people on the system. She has other videos making fun of people too.

Red Bull's not healthy? I thought it was just a stronger version of grape Kool-Aid.

They CAN restrict purchases (i.e. WIC), but they choose not to. And as long as 51% of America keeps voting for this BS, the rest of us have to pay the price...

Of course she is, but it is still fun to talk about.
