Today at Walmart, I pumped $70.68 into my truck all the while staring at a bright yellow sign adhered to the pump. Your EBT cards welcome. I guess I am behind. I know they started accepting them at fast food restaurants and I thought that was totally stupid but now at the gas pump?
Tuesday the Marine had a doctors appointment and we had to fill his van which has a very large tank. $90.16 for that one. We spent over $160.00 for gas this week and someone is getting their gas free from the government which comes from you and me. How much out of control can this government get? And what is even more crazier is that at least 2 convenience stores I have stopped at had help wanted signs. OK...it may not be the job you want but it is a job until things get better. I am not downing people who truly need the help but I know of at least 2 people who would rather suck off the government teat than go to work. People like this purely disgust me.
When I got home I looked up info about the EBT card and in some areas they can even be used at ATM machines to get cash. There is nothing right about any of this.
