I am spending Easter weekend in Roxboro N.C. which .... for those who don't know anything about North Carolina... is basically the armpit of the universe. Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to Walmart (which is the must-go social center of the entire town and just about the only place to shop). At checkout I was delighted to be in line behind two sizeable ladies. One of the women was bragging about her brand new Obamaphone. She had a new Android Smartphone with free service - all paid for with my tax dollars. She further loudly conveyed that she was making lots of money renting out the rooms in her house but she "don't tell the government about that". After Walmart she had an appointment to get her nails and hair done in the local salon. Of course, both women paid for their purchases with EBT cards. This included ham, shrimp, and all the snacks & fixings for Easter dinner. Of course, both acted greatly offended and made a scene when the clerk told them they could not pay with food stamps for two cases or beer and 8 bottles of wine. Two questions: Why are my tax dollars paying for all of this? ... and who the heck needs two cases of cheap beer for Easter dinner?
