Long Beach Native.<quoted text>
As well as Ronald,
So? Again, READ THE WEBSITE. Just because they 'take' EBT doesn't mean the card will work. YOU HAVE TO PROVE YOU ARE HOMELESS BEFORE YOU CAN USE THE CARD TO PAY FOR THE FOOD AT AN RESTURAUNT. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out, if you can, you know, READ and GOOGLE the website.
But since neither of you are 'geniuses', here it is...www.calfresh.ca.gov/& #8206;
I'll be awaiting you apologies...
Yes. I agree. It's time we end Orwellian NEWSPEAK and begin using simple language to say what we mean. Revolutionary occupied Government ended "the stigmatization" of taxpayer supported welfare recipients by issuing them expensive taxpayer funded debit cards. This ended the embarrassment "fat cat" taxpayer supported welfare recipients suffered by using food stamps and vouchers of various kinds. Why not just identify welfare recipients as welfare recipients, rather than running the food stamp - EBT - WIC scams for the purpose of confusing the taxpaying minority?
Long Beach is probably one of the most radical of all the cities in the entire State of California by virtue of the radical taxpayer supported State university that is located there. The city's radical revolutionary Council led the war against the tiny minority of decent Long Beachers who engage in the simple worker *("middle")* class pleasure of enjoying the simple pleasure of an occasional tobacco product. Revolutionary Council has also went to war against the city's food eaters and consumers by implementing the city's hated Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax.*(taxpayer supported welfare recipients are exempt from paying that Lowenthal harassment tax)*
Like many other Long Beachers, it is not always possible for me to get out of the city to buy groceries in more "consumer friendly" cities. As you probably know, Long Beach Native, those who use credit cards must pay for their own groceries and goods, whereas the welfare people - the demographic comprising the majority of city residents - are not suffered with any such inconvenience.
I often stand in line at Long Beach grocery stores behind a long line of welfare people who swipe their taxpayer funded debit cards. Never have I seen the grocery checker ask for identification from those food buyers. When my turn arrives, though, I am required to show a Government issued identifier document. I realize radical Long Beach may be an extreme example, but how long will non-welfare recipients be required to endure the stigma of this unequal treatment that identifies us as second-class citizens?
