Roll out the old tried and true paper food stamps.
We don't need no stinkin' computers. The Lonestar card is a joke.

Just wait until Obama's amnesty and family reunification. The Mexicans will be bringing over tons of long-lost relatives and friends and the need for food stamps will sky rocket.

Funny.... I work a full time job and attend college as a full-time student and unfortunately because of my rate of pay there's no money for food after rent, utilities, tuition, gas for work, daycare etc... don't judge situations you know nothing about. We're not all lazy freeloaders. Get a life and get over yourselves.
