@botfly

They aren't actually using the food stamp cards during the promotion. They are just showing the cards to qualify for the offer. What you can actually buy with the cards is fairly limited. I think it`s reasonable to assume that alcohol isn`t on the list.

vegascartman-" Now it's a source of pride. Thanks Obama."

As much as I dislike Obama`s policies, this attitude has been on the rise for decades before Obama was elected. But I will say he is fostering the `Momma Guv`mint` movement.

But, I`ve always had an idea that would improve the Food Stamp situation: Back in the 70`s many grocery stores had an aisle of two set aside for `generic products`. All had simple white labels: `Beans`, `Chili` (the chili was very good, btw). Why not do the same, but set aside several isles of `Food Stamp products`? If it`s not in that section, you can`t buy it with food stamps.

Not a complete solution, but would definitely save tax dollars.

And anyone found abusing food stamps, they are forbidden from getting benefits from time periods ranging from months to ever.

Just because a vocal (hopefully minority) group of people are non-nice individuals doesn't mean the rest are. Here that means both the black american community at large and the group of Americans who need food stamps.

On an aside, is this exchanging food stamps for drinks, or a discount at the bar for people who get food stamps? I can`t tell.
