Yo, G, swipe yo EBT..

(Vomit bag alert..)



From the State of California Office of Systems Integration site:
Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that automates the delivery, redemption, and reconciliation of issued public assistance benefits. EBT is the method for distributing CalFresh benefits (formerly known as Food Stamps and currently known federally as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits), California Food Assistance Program benefits, and cash aid benefits. EBT is currently used in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam.

Recipients of public assistance in California access their issued benefits with the Golden State Advantage EBT card. The cardholder simply slides this card through a point-of-sale (POS) device, or uses the card at an automated teller machine (ATM). The card is convenient, secure, and reduces the stigma sometimes associated with public assistance.

The positive effects of EBT in California extend beyond the cardholder. Others who benefit include federal, state, and county governments, retailers, financial institutions, and taxpayers. EBT food and cash aid benefits can be redeemed at more than 80,000 locations in California.
..all this leading to a non-working, non-income-taxpaying, shiftless, indolent, entitlement-driven permanent underclass thanks to the federal and state governments. What a revolting state of affairs. Hat tip to Front Page Mag.

Yo, it's Obama's stash, B. It's our money supporting these gangstas, ho's, and be-yotches.

Where do I pick up my free government money? So far, I've had to pay for a home, for gas/electric, food, etc. Now this is the hope and change I was promised!!!

Money for nothing and chicks for free!!! What a country.

Just tack on another couple trillion to the national debt and I'm on my way to McDonalds with my EBT card! That's why they call California the Golden State.

Sooner or later, WP, the chickens come home to roost.

This crazy spending in California will stop eventually - once the money truly runs out for good, and nobody is left to pay into Obama's stash.

A good start would be to return tghe stigma of being a piece of shit human parasite. Of course, most of these EBT card holders have absolutely no shame, so it would be water off a duck's back.

(speaking of Ducks, they should kick some serious Cal Golden Bear butt in Eugene this coming weekend: Ducks by 40).
