You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Okay, but let’s talk for a second about how that one lady called turkey “big chicken”
You can’t even buy all food with food stamps. You just… you flat-out can’t buy “food that will be eaten in the store/any food sold for on-premises consumption” or any “hot foods” with food stamps—meaning you can’t buy anything hot, you can’t buy anything that gets blended together, you can’t buy anything “pre-prepared,” in most cases you can’t use your EBT card at restaurants. You literally CANNOT purchase a milkshake with food stamps, because it’s considered “sold for on-premises consumption” (which was ridiculous at the place I worked, because the customer had to mix their own milkshake themself with a little machine we provided them, and several people got upset—rightfully so, I think—that it wasn’t covered under food stamps, because they often only found out at the register after already mixing it, often as a treat for their kids). You literally can’t walk into a gas station, grab one of those hot dogs off their grills/out of the little heated food area, and buy it with food stamps, because it’s hot.
And when I say “can’t,” I don’t mean “if the cashier notices you trying and cares enough to stop you, they’ll refuse to do it for you.” I mean “it is actually impossible to do this.” I’m not even sure these people who disseminate false information about food stamps have paid any attention at all when buying things at the store, because what happens is: We scan in the customer’s items, into our computer. The computer has specific codes for the items and rules for what it will let you pay for things with. We scan the customer’s EBT card, and it tells us exactly how much of that price total can be paid for via EBT, and it will not include anything that isn’t food, and it will not include anything considered “pre-prepared” food. It does this automatically AND THERE IS NO OVERRIDE FOR IT. If our machines say that you can’t use the EBT card to pay for something, there is literally nothing we can do to change that, even if we WANTED to.
So no. You can’t buy iPads or cigarettes with food stamps. You can’t withdraw money from casinos or anywhere else with food stamps. You can’t buy dog food with food stamps; sometimes you can’t even buy people food with food stamps. I’m not even sure if you can buy “the big chicken legs” at Disney with food stamps; remember, you can’t buy “any food sold for on-premises consumption” OR any hot foods, and that’s both.
Literally the only thing these fearmongers listed that you can actually purchase with food stamps even if you are in goddamn cahoots with the evil liberal cashier or store manager is soda, and the judgement against people buying that with food stamps is classist fuckwittery at its finest.
So, as always, Fox News is actually flat-out lying, and hateful conservatives both don’t know what they’re talking about and don’t give a fuck about people going through shit that they will never have to go through themselves, and that they in fact don’t have even the tiniest clue about (not even via five seconds’ research; a list of things that can’t be purchased with food stamps is on the Food and Nutrition Services website) but still think they should spout off about to their TV audience anyway.
So why isn’t this all over the news? Had a group of Blacks murdered a white cop…
So wait… tf happened that all 3 of these drunk assholes killed a cop
well, apparently, the white woman was getting arrested by the officer - his name’s kevin jordan, by the way - and her boyfriend (bowman) saw she was getting arrested and shot k. jordan multiple times in the back.
here’s the article i read:
lord, I was thought they arrested her.
“There will be a candlelight vigil on Friday night starting at 8PM at the old walmart parking lot. Participants should start gathering around 7:30. The vigil is open to the public. Officer Jordan’s family will be in attendance.”
Just in case anyone wants to attend
Conservatives love to fling rhetoric about assaulting a police officer being a horrible, heinous crime. But a black police officer gets killed in a red state, in a place of business, during a previously nonviolent arrest? Silence.
Omg… My Spirit Hurts Bruh…
Y’all hoes soulless
But he still about to hit though.
he looks lost af… like he dunno wtf he’s supposed to do next
bro i need the rachetivity to stop immediately
Yoooo I think I know them 😂
social-justice-mindy: As an exit to my blog I would like to say this. I am very educated and smart. I am currently in college and I have a 3.2 cum G.P.A. I have no problems with blacks. I used to date a chocolate guy and obviously we were intimate. Now if that points to racism, then your logic doesn’t make sense. My whole life I have been friends with minorities and so has everyone else in my family. My older brother even did some missionary work in Ghanna for one summer and dated one of the native African American girls while there. We were just raised in a home in which we were taught to think freely and express ourselves. I am sorry if I offended anyone with my posts. I am not racist at all. I think black people deserve the rights we gave them and should keep them, That being said I believe it is time for black people to behave and better themselves and stop forcing the world to occomodate them. A black that I really admire, Pharrel, was speaking on the Queen Latifah show and said blacks should embrace the positivity life has to offer and he called it new black. I completely agrree. It is time to start a neew. America is for black people now but only if you people want it. I’m crying hysterically now so I’ll leave you all with this quote by a great black man, “How do we stop racism? We stop talking about it.” -Mindy
get the fuck off the internet…
"Native African American girl" in ‘Ghanna,’ got it.
found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom
