Anyone else notice how people who pay with food stamps and food stamp cards usually have a buggy overflowing with the best of food, while people who pay with their own money have much less.
I have been noticing this as a growing trend. As I pulled up behind one of these packed buggies the other day, the lady was having a hard time putting all of her groceries in her bags so I volunteered to help with the heavy stuff. As I watched her check out, sure enough she was using one of those food stamp cards. According to this purchase, she could afford three times as much as I could AND she got cash back! And there was no sign of any disability!
I have no problems with helping people who need help, but it made me think of Ron Paul and what he says about the nanny state and how this country is slipping more and more towards socialism.
