    That seems a bit absurd considering it's our money being spent.

    $100.00 of Food Stamps will get you about $75.00 dollars cash money.

    Plenty of food stores in Ft Worth will make the trade.
    They even accept Food Stamps for crack, meth and MJ.

    It's a booming business.
    Food Stamps are highly liquid and can be traded for just about anything.

    They just might be better than buying Gold.

    If the American public found out the truth, there would be mile long lines of people wanting in on the deal.

    Gotta love the Government. They keep raising the amount of $$$ for food stamps, but then post signs in National Parks telling you not to feed the bears because they will become dependent on handouts.:whistling:

    Yep. No one has to tell me. I see it every time I go to the grocery store.

    (And, that's not even counting the cards and stamps I've taken off drug dealers that were traded for dope).
