Please note: This is in no way meant to demoralize anyone who needs assistance in feeding their family. I know it's not actual "stamps" that are given out anymore, the poor can now hold their heads up a little higher and slide the governmnet issued card right through the machine, leaving most people waiting in line none the wiser as to their situation. I was in line behind someone not long ago who was pretty obvious about their form of payment. I do my best not to judge others, but sometimes I just can't help myself. This young girl hardly looked old enough to be mother to the 3 kids hanging onto the shopping cart, but yet they did call her "mommy" so there you have it. It wasn't the fact that she was using my money to buy food for her kids, it was the fact that there was nothing but junk being rung up that got to me. I'm sorry, but if you're destitute enough to need help buying groceries, then I think it should be used on nourishing food, not a bunch of sweets and snacks that do nothing for a childs health. I'm sure there are ways to restrict what is being purchased with the states money, so why allow this?
