You would have to find out who he bought them from. I know people that sell theirs too. It's sad.

When I apply for a job the first thing I have to do is pee in a bottle. That MUST be required for anyone getting any goverment supported funds or assistance. Lets stop welfare waist and cheats.

I agree with the drug testing. It was mentioned several times but I doubt it will be put in to effect until things get worse.

It's a shame that someone who knows these people have kids but yet still buy the food stamps. If you as me, he is definitely a part of the problem.

I've been in situations in the past where I had no choice but to sign up for government assistance and I would have no problem taking a drug test especially when just about every employer requires it. It infuriates me knowing that there are people out there who sell their food stamps for drug money.

Why not give credit where it's due. I know a lot of LEGAL born and raised American citizens who fall into the same group.

I worked at a grocery store in Nashville while I was in high school. The time that really bothered me was the lady that came through with expensive clothes on, her nails long and artistically manicured, talking on her cell phone (this was 12 years ago when cell phones were not the norm) and when the bagger came back from putting her groceries in her car, it was a BRAND NEW Lexus. Of course she paid in food stamps. It drove me crazy.

Not all of them. On a similar note, how the hell do you know that the Mexicans you've encountered are illegal? Do you ask them for their green cards when they come through your line or are you just assuming since they're darker than you and have an accent? Figured.

I know of a Mexican woman who came here illegally to begin with because there was no way for her to earn the money back home. She came here and worked her ass off for several YEARS so that she could afford to gain citizenship and feed her children and she didn't draw a dime from the government during that time. For you to sit on your high and mighty (albiet undeserved superiority since you work in a f*cking grocery store) ass and claim that Mexicans are all illegals who need to be deported because they're "suckin our country dry" is pathetic. Don't tell me you wouldn't at least attempt the same feat if you had children and saw a means of bettering their futures just on the other side of a river.

The poster was obviously referring to illegal aliens, and he never said all Mexicans are illegal. If you owned a home in one of the infested neighborhoods here in Cookeville, Nashville, etc., and saw your property value nosedive because of these parasites, and you came home to find your house ransacked, you would sing a different song. Just try to sell your home when most of the neighbors have 15 people crammed in a small house, and cars in the front yard with the hood up all the time.

I welcome legal immigration. The illegal ones are, by definition, criminals and need to be sent home. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

By right and historic tradition, the Mexicans should rape and kill the white man like we did the Indians, and just claim this land for their own like we did. The Founding Fathers were not "American", they were British, so they were illegal immigrants when they came here. Get over your ignorant racist nonsense and accept the fact that there will always be other nationalities in this country, and there's nothing you can do about it. No reason to just be angry all the time about it.

This is a bogus arguement. Everyone is an immigrant or decendent of an immigrants. And many of the natives on the east coast were wiped out by disease not by deliberate murder. Yes, there will always be other nationalities in the USA but they need to be here legally and not sneaking accross our borders.
