we "liberate" other countries from governments for doing what we've done to the indigenous tribes of this continent.  you can dismiss genocidal conquest all you want, but the truth is we came over here and took it by force

Get over it...law of the land now.

 

And while you're at it...go back and trace every migrating civilization throughout history and give everything back to their original owners.

 

Word is...China might have a claim on the US now.

Theft from the people using the broken cards

Theft from WAL-MART by letting it happen.

This is the winner post.

 

People are so silly.  White collar fraud trumps things like this and welfare/benefit fraud by a thousandfold, yet people get hung up on poor people stealing food.  Is it right?  No way, it's not.  But the outcry over this and not the former, is crazy.  The right has been brain washed to hate poor people at all costs and the left has been told to defend the poor at all costs.  Then, nothing is done about the real issue at hand.   It's a voting tactic by both sides.  Let's stop buying into the BS.

 

White collar fraud probably funds elections, which is why neither party will jump all over it.  White collar fraud has ruined people's lives, but I don't think some people getting extra carts of food is going to cause anyone hardship.

Not to mention tax loopholes wnatnot that are used by the rich far eclipse welfare fraud (where less than 2% have even committed welfare fraud at all).  Just look at former VP Dick Cheney's activities as an example.   

 

But it's much easier to vilify the poor and such, that is what happens.

Has nothing to do with this...but tax loopholes aren't fraud.  No one is defending fraud or anything illegal.  Prosecute all.

Yeah, it has to do with it when no one is outraging about those things.  Tax loopholes aren't technically fraud, but they are way worse than less than 2% of welfare recipients committing fraud.   The amount of tax money that isn't being taken completely trumps this.  I'm not saying these people or people that fraud anyone are right, but I wish citizens of both parties would put as much worry into those things as some people getting extra Cornflakes when they shouldn't.   Probablem is, both aisles in Washington are lined up by people that take advantage of said loopholes lol.
