Welfare should end period. Provide for yourself or die; stop sucking the life out of everyone else. Stop breeding kids. And I am tired of helping people in the name of the kids. If you are going to help the kids - take the kids; leave the mother or father on the street.

Spot on post!

Actually.... It's a store-by-store basis in CA. Most of them won't, but there are some in the EB where you can indeed buy things like Monsters, Redbull, bottled coffee, etc.
I've never understood how 7-11 got away with allowing foodstamps useable...

Makes my blood boil.
I know its bad but i live in northern Ohio and we get MI 10 cent beer cans here every once in awhile. It is always Miller Light "which my brother drinks" but it pays for our fishing license every year plus a lil cash on top! We have a cottage up there and it works well for us! I think it is stupid to pay 10 cents on every bottle and can though! Anyways i have never taken food stamps or unemployment in all the years i have worked. I am only 32 and have been self employed since 2000 and have had some rough years!
