hahahahaha

the rich are parasites. if it wasn't for "everyone else" working in their factories and businesses, manufacturing and selling products and services, they wouldn't exist

So, you agree with those saying "you didn't build that", therefore politicians know better how to distribute their wealth?

The same rich who pay the majority of our income taxes? Those people? Freaking leeches, the lot of em. If they'd pay more those poor people could get beer with their pizza.

???

i agree that capital is dead labor

i agree that the 1% are a burden on society

i agree that wall street contributes less to society than a teacher, yet for some reason the latter gets paid poo wages while the former acts as a gigantic casino built for the rich to gamble off your livelihood

the rich are entirely dependent upon the exploitation of the poor and to suggest that they're "living on their own means" is hilariously wrong. the waltons aren't "living on their own means"; they are the beneficiaries of wage-slavery.

If we were actually slaves to our wages as you suggest, then we'd never be able to negotiate them or go to other "masters" of our own volition. You're right... the job market sucks so bad in America that people are leaving in droves to other countries just to get a fair shot.... oh wait... that's everybody else.

The casualty of your "insight" is a concept of reality.

Save for when we were the most prosperous country on the planet... You know... before Roosevelt and that whole industrial revolution? How's western socialism working out again?

Ever watched the show Shameless?

As much as the title and show is pretty shameless, this group of scumbags puts them to shame.

did a 30 second search and came up with this

http://wiki.answers....ccept_ebt_cards

more, just random links from the first page of google results

http://www.blackvoic...ood-stamps.html

so yeah, looks like in certain areas/states people can use food stamp cards at restaurants, convenience stores and gas stations.

as far as a pizza place letting people use EBT cards even in states where prepared food is not allowed, I don't know for sure but this is what I'm guessing... many pizza restaurants (actual restaurants with sit down dining areas, not the chain places with just carryout) have options where you can get a take-and-bake pizza uncooked to take home. So that would be allowed under any states EBT laws as far as I know. Now if someone comes in, gets a cooked pizza and wants to pay with EBT then they can just ring it up as a take-and-bake when they go to pay to skirt the law (cooked or take-and-bake have always been the same price everytime I've seen the two options).

As I said. You can get food from those places, but only cold food, such as salads and cold sandwiches, you also have to get it to go. You can't just go to McDonalds and get a BigMac ( to go, or otherwise) with an EBT. We had already been through this argument before.

Those were the good old days, before those pesky government regulations prevented children from earning a living and women didnt have to fret about who they should vote for.

Plus we got to fight wars with cool countries like Mexico and Spain and expand our territory instead of all that boring nation building
