They cannot reform the system because the welfare people say that is discrimination. When the welfare was limited to only certain items such as cereal, bread, milk they stated that is discrimination because they should be like anyone else that can buy top of the line steaks, ribs and seafood.<quoted text>
You got lost somewhere in the confusion. Do yourself a favor a reacquaint yourself with the positions of others. Darn Tootin was in opposition of (his/her perception of) excessive benefits of municipal and state law enforcement. He is fully employed, a property owner, and taxpayer. This was established several years back - before he changed his name.
I'm neutral here, but if there's a discussion to be had, it ought to be on level ground. He (she?)'s not the one to go after for living the welfare life and is allowed the valid point here.

The ebt cards replaced the paper food stamps because they stated it was not fair that other people would know they were on welfare when using the paper food stamps and that is discrimination. They wanted to be treated equal and the same as everyone else. The ebt cards were not about making the system simpler.
Reverend Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton always jumps in when there is a possible welfare reform.
How come the NAACP or ACLU never jumps in when a white person is discriminated against or called a racial slur? Hmmmmmmmmmm.
