thing is, those who apply for food stamps should be made to take mandatory cooking classes. including on basic nutrition. at the end of the course, they should be given a cookbook to keep at home.
.
as well as it should be mandatory for kids in middle and senior high schools to be in home ec. as in cooking.
.
too many folks think that taking a TV dinner and throwing it in the microwave is cooking. when it is not at all proper cooking.
.
folks who think living off of microwave cooking are being piss poor cooks and down right lazy. and many of these are those folks who believe that food stamps are a entitlement right.

Clue in, he's not banning it, he's restricting FOOD STAMP Purchases...

Most likely, you're an idiot, that isn't even self supporting AND NEEDS MULTIPLE MEDS.....

Need I say, your entire family IQ is suspect, especially since you paid for a huge part of your "condo" with inherited money, but later you claimed you "earned"...
