  •  Bananified: 22 yr olds buying Red Bull and (5+ / 0-)

    fritos at the local Shell Station with an EBT card...food stamps.

    Being asked 6 times a day..."Hey Man...can you spare a cigarette?"

    Saving your beer cans for the truly destitute old woman from Myan Mar, who makes the rounds in the neighborhood every week before trash day.  I somehow think she spends the deposit money on rice and fish, instead of cigarettes and beer,

    36 year olds...who are already showing signs of gray in their hair...who still get around on a fucking skateboard.

    My neighbor, who is struggling financially, and came over to borrow some pepper from me last Wednesday.  Black pepper????????   What's next?  Salt?

    This country has been descending into third world status for years.  And the rate of descent is accellerating.

      but I know that EBT doesn't pay for energy drinks here. I have a friend who buys her groceries with EBT and her energy drink with change from the bottom of her purse.
