    Food Stamp Recipients Buy Barrels to Ship Food-Stamp food Overseas.

    While liberals fret that 100 million receiving food stamps is not enough, New York food stores sell barrels so immigrants can ship food-stamp food overseas.http://www.nypost.com/p/news/nationa...sldSAjDVC9isjM

    Re: Food Stamp Recipients Buy Barrels to Ship Food-Stamp food Overseas.

    The only people who give a flying fuck about poor food stamp recipients taking food out of their OWN mouths to, perhaps, make life a sliver less awful for family members in another country are the xenophobic, racist, ASSHOLES who sit here jacking their tiny erections at the gleeful thought of someone, somewhere else who "deserves to starve" because of an accident of birth.

    You make me sick.

    Last week, a woman stuffed dozens of boxes of macaroni and evaporated milk into a barrel headed for her family in Kingston, Jamaica. She said she didn’t have welfare benefits and bought the food herself.

    “This is all worth more than $2,000,” she said. “I’ve been shopping since last December. You can help somebody else, someone who doesn’t live in this country.”

    A man helping her pack the barrel said: “We’re poor here, and they’re poor. But what we can get here is like luxury to them.”
    The last line tells you all you need to know.

    Before you get all bent out of shape:

    Last week, a woman stuffed dozens of boxes of macaroni and evaporated milk into a barrel headed for her family in Kingston, Jamaica. She said she didn’t have welfare benefits and bought the food herself.

    “This is all worth more than $2,000,” she said. “I’ve been shopping since last December. You can help somebody else, someone who doesn’t live in this country.”


    I suspect a lot of the containers are filled by people like this woman who could teach a few people here about the nature of giving and sharing.

    And to be honest, if people on welfare are still willing to share the little they have with family still in dirt poor countries...they also could give a lot of smug self-indulgent and self satisfied people in North America a lesson as well.

    Luv said it very well. Benvolio. Your outrage makes me sick.

    Taxpayers should not be expected to support the whole world on charity. Our domestic welfare should not be so lucrative that they can ship it overseas.in another thread liberals are weeping because the GOP wants to limit food stamps. We should give them jobs and eliminate welfare as an alternative life style.

    Oh you mean the jobs you conservatives sent to third world countries? Every time conservatives are asked where are the millions of jobs we were suppose to see as a result of the Bush tax cuts, we hear crickets chirping. Corporations are sitting on $1 trillion in cash and won't hire. You cons can't have it both ways. Jobs or food stamps. Take your pick and stop talking out of both sides of your mouth. The hypocrisy is nothing short of stunning.

    That's right. Keep them on the edge of starvation themselves so they "get up" and become Wall Street bankers. Let's keep the poor hungry and in pain lest they get any "ideas" about helping those even less fortunate than they are or ever giving them false notions that they aren't less than human. When we piss down their throats those fuckers should be made to realize that they deserve it and they can get out if they don't like it.

    See, you've CONVINCED me!

    Honestly, if there's a "vote" to be had about WHERE my tax dollars are going I'd like to put in so not a SINGLE red cent goes to paying for the social security of old, non-productive racist xenophobes. Please, if anyone has a form please send it to me.

    By the way, where's your thread about old white American women who sell their government funded prescriptions at a profit?

    Well let me give you lesson #1 about the NY Post. You can't believe anything there either.
    Look at the first sentence after the byline.
    Food stamps are paying for trans-Atlantic takeout — with New Yorkers using taxpayer-funded benefits to ship food to relatives in Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
    It says Food stamps are paying for "trans-Atlantic takeout". Then at the end it says relatives in "Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic". These countries are in the Caribbean and are not "trans-Atlantic".

    The only reason we have higher than usual unemployment is because Republicans HAVE shipped out jobs to them. The reason they still need food is the same reason why Republicans sent our jobs to these countries in the first place - they can pay them nothing and get a 14 hour days work out of them. If you're so concerned about jobs, write your rich, Republican friends and tell them to close down their manufacturing plants in China and bring them home. Then we'll have enough jobs for everyone you claim are purposely kept to fulfill some agenda which you can't even properly articulate.

    Don't forget Tiger that the republicans would prefer our working poor that cannot afford food to live right here in the united states. That is why they want to get rid of the minimum wage. And bring those menial jobs back.

    Re: Food Stamp Recipients Buy Barrels to Ship Food-Stamp food Overseas.

    So the government has a previously fixed amount of corporate welfare in the form of giving people money to purchase food with, real money which makes a real impact on the P&L of any company which accepts foodstamps, and the GOP is now concerned with what happens to food once it's been purchased?

    I'm not exactly overjoyed with the whole scenario, but some of the greatest benefactors of welfare (Walmart, etc) don't fucking care what happens to their product once it leaves the store. They're not purchasing GOP congressmen just for them to raise a stink over something that fattens their bottom-line.

    EDIT - Benny, you're doing a crappy job of being a GOP mouthpiece. Foodstamps benefit the corporate food industry just as much as they benefit the poor who use them to purchase "food" which really isn't food nowadays. You should be overjoyed at private corporations receiving taxpayer money.

    All that aside, last year I borrowed the Gov.'s book, Fed Up from my local libery. Predictably, it contained various statements against the evil federal government. After 25-30 pages, I realized that the book was geared to a 5th-6th grade reading level. Even if I had agreed with some of his statements, the book was an insult to my intelligence, as is the man himself.

    Woodrow Wilson? A decade? History according to Bachmann?

    I thought Woodrow Wilson was one of the "founding fathers."

    Your outrage that impoverished people are slowly collecting food over months at a time to send over one barrel to their hungry families overseas is revolting, Benvolio. I suppose you'd be outraged too if an EBT recipient spent some money to buy a hamburger for a homeless person on the street.

    The bottom line is that these families qualify for government assistance to make it by. If they want to budget out small amounts at a time so they can survive more modesty to feed their families overseas, then they have every right to do that. That's their money because they've qualified for it. These are also countries that Americans have generously donated supplies and food to during terrible disasters or an economic crisis. I imagine many of these families from Haiti are still suffering from the disaster that was that earthquake. I begrudge no poor American for wanting to send aid to their relatives, even if it means they have even less to survive on in this ultra-rich country.

    I assure you that I am much more revolted than you. This entire policy of flooding our country with poor unemployed millions and moving them immediately into the permanent welfare underclass is more revolting to me than you can imagine. 47% of Americans receive some form of welfare, not including Medicare, and 100 million receive food stamps, but we are still bringing in more, and the biggest item on Obama's agenda is legality for 11 million illegals. What did Americans do to cause liberals to hate our country so much?

    And to make us despise the Stormfront mentality of the reactionary right wing even more.

    If your goal is to drive people away from the right through your constant drone about immigration policy and how the poor are failing to please you....you are doing an excellent job.

    Like tax cuts, a portion of conservatives have turned illegal immigration into a fetish that rises beyond all logical discussion of the subject.

    That first sentence jumped right out at me, too. How can anyone take a newspaper seriously with reporters and editors so ignorant of basic geography? Of course, what can one expect from a Rupert Murdoch owned rag like the NY Post? Most of his publications are an insult to the intelligence of anyone with half a brain.

    You ignored everything I just wrote and parroted your same platform that we've heard for about 1,000 of your posts. We've already addressed your xenophobic, racist rants about welfare, immigration, medicare, and Obama. Stay on topic to your own thread.

    I never expect civility from a liberal. Name calling is how they think. It is, for most of them, central to their thinking process. BUT for those who keep complaining that I do not respond, my point is that they cannot expect a response to incivility.

    Personally as long as the legitimately qualified to receive those benefits without any sort fraud, I could care less if they want to send some of them to relatives or throw them out in the yard to feed the squirrels and birds. Its their food. I find this just as annoying as the people who want to stand over their shoulder and moralize over what they buy at the store. If someone wants to go hungry and save up their benefits to buy a nice steak for their birthday whose business is that but theirs?

    The question is whether they have committed fraud in representing that they need the welfare. Obviously, they are receiving more than they need.
    You are correct, it does not state they are immigrants, but it is an unavoidable inference that, since they are sending to close relatives they are recent immigrant families.

    I suppose one man’s unavoidable inference is another man’s unsubstantiated assumption.


    But hey~ even msnNOW covered the NYPost article …

    “Everybody does it,” said a supermarket worker in Brooklyn. “They pay for it any way they can. A lot of people pay with EBT [Electronic Benefit Transfer, or welfare cards].” It's that last bit that has the Post worked up, but their evidence is all anecdotal. [Link]

    If they are practicing fraud to receive extra funds they aren't entitled to that is different matter. By all means the state should take action on that. But they are not serfs who sell their lives to the state in return for a bit of charity, they have a right to do what they see fit with their own lives. The state makes a judgement on what is a adequate amount to help those in need and if you think that is too much take it up with the state. Clearly being human some will manage that charity better than others and some will abuse and waste it. Will you deny others need because of them?

    How is it "obvious" that they get more than they need? Or is it that Benvolio is the god-emperor of the universe and has decreed how much a poor person needs for the bare minimum of survival, and that they not receive a smidgen more?

    If they have food to give away they have more than they need. They should give it back to the taxpayers. Politicians use the full power of the state to confiscate the earnings of some to give it to others, on the pretense that they desparately need food. This scam discredits the entire scheme.

    Bullshit. The GOP blocked legislation that would have enabled the private sector to provide millions of jobs in just the last couple of years.

    The only thing the GOP wants for the poor is for them to shut up and stop voting.

    Today's GOP, especially its Stormfront section, doesn't care about law. They, like the Pharisees of the New Testament, feel themselves more righteous than that.

    The bottom line is that these families qualify for government assistance to make it by. If they want to budget out small amounts at a time so they can survive more modesty to feed their families overseas, then they have every right to do that. That's their money because they've qualified for it. These are also countries that Americans have generously donated supplies and food to during terrible disasters or an economic crisis. I imagine many of these families from Haiti are still suffering from the disaster that was that earthquake. I begrudge no poor American for wanting to send aid to their relatives, even if it means they have even less to survive on in this ultra-rich country.

    Um, The only one being uncivilized here was you, Benvolio. And it isn't just in this thread. You are the only one I see calling people names and being incivil.

    Or alternatively, they are willing to go to bed hungry so that they can send food to their families who are even worse off than they are.

    Seriously, your lack of compassion is an affront to humanity. What exactly did you think people would say in this thread? Did you expect some other result when you posted it, or did you just want to see how repulsed you can make us?
