This will make your blood boil. Food stamp (SNAP) reality: 2013. This CA surfer avoids work at all costs, buys sushi and lobster with food stamps, and when asked what he has to say to the American taxpayer? “Thanks!”
Hey, dude, why bother getting a job when you can jam out, hang ten with your fellow surf bums, and buy all the sushi and lobster you want – courtesy of the American taxpayer – which in turn, is courtesy of Barack Obama’s suspension of welfare-to-work requirements.
As reported by Red Alert Politics:
That was the attitude displayed by Jason Greenslate, a 29-year-old California surfer and musician, interviewed by Fox News‘ John Roberts during “The Great Food Stamp Binge” Friday night special.
Though he’s trained as a recording engineer, Greenslate prefers to sing explicitly about what little desire he has to hold down a job, and has “f**k no” guilt toward his taxpayer-funded lifestyle. He also lives rent-free, occupying the homes of family and friends while occasionally shacking up with girlfriends – a lifestyle that he said is “wonderful, man.”
“Wake up, go down to the beach, hang out with my friends, hit on some chicks, start drinking.”
Fox News later followed Greenslate to the grocery store to see what items hey buys – using the $200 monthly handout he receives from enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly “food stamps”). Roberts watched as the freeloader picked out gourmet sushi and lobster, “all paid for by our wonderful tax dollars,” according to a smug Greenslate.
When asked what he has to say to hardworking taxpayers who fund his lifestyle, this clown looked into the camera without batting an eye and said: “Thanks!”
As I’ve said in the past, we as a moral country have an obligation to help those who cannot help themselves – for however long they are unable to do so. But, helping those who will not help themselves, absolutely not.
As for those who not only refuse to help themselves, but openly flaunt their abuse of programs designed to help those who can’t help themselves, shame on them – and shame on a government that allows them to do.
Thanks to Barack Obama, “government assistance” now officially includes taxpayer handouts.
