No, it does not require a bank account. You can get a govt issued (EBT) card. I'm assuming there is a fee schedule, but I'm on my phone and can't easily search for it.

BTW, neither my banks nor my credit union charge me for retail debits, even with cash back.

I see where you were trying to go - I just don't think you got there. In the conversation about voter ID there were more red herrings than a busy fish market at the height of the season on both sides

Not to mention the fact that the Voter ID requirement was unnecessary on its face. It was a solution in search of a problem.

The reason there is no hue and cry about the EBT requirement for Social Security being 'discriminatory', is that there is ALREADY a phhoto ID requirement attached to receiving Social Security. One has to show 3 forms of ID, with at least one being a state or Federally issued photo, before receiving one's SS card, and always has.

has anyone noticed the Republican manufactured "fiscal cliff" is coming back to bite them in the AZZ

There would be NO "fiscal Cliff" if the Republicans hadn't used tax increases on the top 2% as a bargaining chip during last years debt ceiling debacle.

They were so sure Willard Romney was going to win the election they wouldn't have anything to worry about...well...(they shouldn't have listened to Karl Rove)

The Republican Party is truly in crisis, and that crisis is now coming to a head. The popular vote in the most recent election was an endorsement of Obama’s performance and a clear refutation of GOP extremism.

The majority in the country want taxes on the top 2% to increase, it appears the Republicans are Hell bent on their very own extinction.

A teacher was teaching her second grade class about the government, so for homework that one day, she told her her students to ask their parents what the government is.

When Little Johnny got home that day, he went up to his dad and ask his what the government was.

His dad thought for a while and answered,''Look at it this way: I'm the president, your mom is Congress, your maid is the work force, you are the people and your baby brother is the future.''

''I still don't get it'' responded the Little Johnny.

''Why don't you sleep on it then? Maybe you'll understand it better,'' said the dad.

''Okay then...good night'' said Little Jonny went off to bed. In the middle of the night, Little Johnny was awakened by his baby brother's crying. He went to his baby brother's crib and found that his baby brother had taken a crap in his diaper. So Little Johnny went to his parent's room to get help. When he got to his parent's bedroom, he looked through the keyhole to check if his parents were asleep. Through the keyhole he saw his mom loudly snoring, but his dad wasn't there. So he went to the maid's room. When he looked through the maid's room keyhole, he saw his dad having sex with his maid. Little Johnny was surprised, but then he just realized something and thinks aloud,''OH!! Now I understand the government! The President is screwing the work force, Congress is fast asleep, nobody cares about the people, and the future is full of shit!''

I have to chuckle at you multiple positive judgicons We all know you gave them to yourself. Now i understand, positive self-talk and all. My husband is in a wheelchair and can only stand to a walker and pivot to another seat. It's a real effort but at the end he says "good job" He is my hero. But on an anonymous forum, I have to tell you it seems kind of silly.(and pathetic)

Can one judge one's own posts? I've been laboring under the impression that was prohibited.

Merry Christmas, Lis.
