You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Re blogging for commentary mostly. How are people so ignorant? The ONLY thing you can buy w food stamps is fucking FOOD.
I don’t know if it’s a state by state thing, but there are also certain “junk food” products that people like to complain that poor folks are wasting their food stamps on that I know my ex could not purchase with EBT when he was on it. Anything labeled an energy drink, things like birthday cakes and specialty food items, some candies and snack food, etc. The EBT just wouldn’t cover their balance. if you had those in your grocery cart and rang them up with everything else, the EBT would cover the other items and leave the balance for the out-of bounds items behind and you would have to pay for them out of pocket. And for fucks sake you most certainly can not spend them at restaurants or places that cook and sell “Big chicken legs.” You can use them at SOME grocery stores and a few convience stores/ big box pharmacies that stock groceries. That is all.
I can personally verify this. Being on disability and food stamps is NOT the easy ride they for some reason want to make it out to be.
#let me tell you something about this scene okay #her little pause before she says ‘and the baby’ #like she’s not sure if she’s going to say it #but then she figures okay why not say it I’ve got nothing left to lose #and that little smile on her face when she does #because for all the heartache she’s feeling right now and has felt since she and the Doctor were separated #there’s this one thing that will always keep them together #but then the Doctor says ‘you’re not…?’#it’s this look of sheer terror and sadness on his face #that is not the face of a man who thinks the woman he loves is pregnant with another man’s child #he thinks she’s pregnant with his child #and now she’s trapped in a parallel world where he will never be able to reach her #but if she’d told him right then and there that she was pregnant with his child he would have torn both universes apart to get to them #and he can’t do that because he has to protect the universe and stay detached and nothing should cloud his vision #and Rose knows that because she knows him better than anyone so seeing that look on his face she says ‘it’s mum’s’ #and then that look of relief on his face is worth the lie #they only have two minutes and sometimes a lie is kinder than the truth
That Character Had So Much Potential: A Memoir
I’m not fearless. I’m terrified. I’m always terrified.
say what you like about frozen but the fact is, the second highest grossing animated film ever, now with a golden globe and an emmy behind it, is a film about two sisters, one of whom suffers from tangible depression and anxiety attacks, and the most important relationship is that of their love for each other and i think that’s pretty darn cool
