Food stamp recipients shouldn't even be buying lottery tickets.....

Re: $2 million lottery winner still gets food stamps?

Pretty disgusting.

I'm still supportive of the program however. I think an example of how Food Stamps can really help occurred in single parent household growing up.

My single mother was on food stamps. I still personally went a bit hungry at times and that is no BS. There simply was no food and I use to walk to a BBQ joint and eat the pickles off the topping bar. She also worked full time and went to school full time. She then went on to make 6 figures a year for about 2 decades straight and now has assets in the millions. She also, interestingly enough, is a leader of some sort of Texas Republican Women's association arranging fundraisers and such. She was not a dead beat but we needed the help.

On the other hand, my mother's sister, after getting out of the army was a dope fiend for the rest of her life and always lived on government assistance.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

There is a HUGE underground economy (for lack of a better word) based upon food stamps....

Since he is so adamant about staying on the program confiscate his winnings. Was it not for being on food stamps he probably couldn't have afforded the ticket thus the winnings are actually the people's.

Back in Houston my friend's Uncle owned a grocery store and he paid 50 cents on the dollar for food stamps. You handed him a $20 food stamp and he handed you $10 cash sort of thing.

When I was living in S.C. in the early '80's they busted a "buy here,pay here" car lot taking car payments the same way.
