What do you say when you make chit-chat in the checkout line? Do you comment on a sale, the cover of the latest US Weekly, someone’s lovely brooch — or do you just start yelling at random strangers for using food stamps? For you, it is probably not the latter, but for one charming lady in a Walmart, it certainly is!

A video posted online last week by “What’d We Learn? 4 the People,” and first noted by Hot Topics, shows an unidentified woman berating a total stranger for using food stamps to help feed his kid.

It’s not clear how the conversation started, though the first thing we hear out of this classy lady’s mouth is something about how “Usually when you’re raised that way you wanna work real harder NOT to go back.” You know, because it’s so easy these days for someone who has been poor their whole life to just stop being poor.

“I put in 50 to 60 hour weeks. I’m trying to provide for my family,” the father said, but this lady weren’t having none of it, so she shot right back, “You’re not providing for it, I am. The government is. They take it out of my check, bullshit they don’t.”

The man then suggested that if it upset her so, she should perhaps contact a local representative to complain, or just vote Republican, to which she replied, “Oh, trust me — I am not a bleeding heart fucking liberal,” as if anyone would have confused her for one. He tried to ignore, but to no avail. She just kept right on insisting, “If I’m gonna pay for all your shit the least I can do is talk.” Then she started fuming about “people like you,” and “Hillary and Bernie supporters.” Which I guess would be people like me who think it is weird to desperately want children to starve to death.

It’s tough for many Republicans, who want only for businesses to be allowed to pay people far less than they need to live on, and then for those people to not go on food stamps or accept any government aid whatsoever. And also for them not to have money to go to college to get a better job and to not have any health care so they don’t have access to preventative medicine, so that then when they get seriously ill or have a heart attack or an accident and get rushed to the hospital, they end up in debt for the rest of their lives. Is that really too much to ask? Couldn’t they be just a little more noble?

Just think of all these people straight-up refusing to just not be poor! And then also wanting to eat? And wanting their kids to eat? It is all too much! Why don’t they just magically get better jobs? Or they could just starve to death and decrease the surplus population!

All of which would be far more pleasant for this random lady in a Walmart than having to pay THIRTY-SIX AMERICAN DOLLARS a year in taxes that go to programs like SNAP that help feed people!

All patriotic Americans know those welfare people are just spending their money on drugs. (Except how every time states drug test food stamp recipients, they find a whole bunch of nothing.) Maybe they’re using everybody else’s HARD EARNED TAX MONEYS to get their palms read on Caribbean cruises! (Nope.) Well at least they’re probably frivolously spending money on lobster, which is unfair and probably not even legal.

In comparison, subsidies to hard working corporations make up about $6000 of that lady’s tax dollars per year. But if they cut the SNAP program, those companies could get $6036! And the mean lady could have the sheer joy of watching children dying in the street after having a bunch of cheerful, hypothermia-induced hallucinations like that darling “The Little Match Girl” story!

  • MsAnthropesMr

    As Huff Po points out – some evidence that 1 out of every 5 dollars of food stamps is spent at Mall-Wart.

    • chazmanr

      By Walmart employees who mostly earn so little that they receive SNAP and Medicaid benefits. Seems the woman should have been directing her ire at the cashier and her employer. But what a bucking funt!

      • Latverian Diplomat

        Yes, loudly denouncing SNAP at a Walmart is not going to get you the best in customer service.

          I was hoping someone would come along and accidently ‘spill’ an extra large soda on her but no. It didn’t happen.

          • SnarkOff

            Well, I did note that someone–either the cashier or whomever is taking the video–tells the dad, “I’m sorry you have to go through this.”

    • blondeiq

      Guess how I learned at age 14 that tampons may NOT be purchased with food stamps? The store manager thought it might be helpful to broadcast that fact over the store’s PA. Nope, still not over it.

      • theCryptofishist

        How horrible.

    • borninatrailer

      I’ve already shared a story or two about that. Big button for me so I’ll have trouble posting about this lady without just simply calling her a cunt.

    • jmhm

      My kid was issued a card she could have us add dollars to if she wanted to buy school lunch. They issued cards because kids with free school lunches were eating bags of chips rather than admit in front of their friends they couldn’t afford school lunch in a district where well over half the children couldn’t afford school lunch.

      I vote fuck them too.

  • Scooby

    Are there no prisons? Are the workhouses still in operation?

  • Hutch

    You know what I do when someone is buying food for their child with foodstamps and something, like say, a juice brand, isn’t allowed? I buy it for them. And had I been there during this exchange, I’m articulate enough to shut people the fuck up!

    • Callyson

      • Hutch

        One woman I was in line with at the grocery store was getting the run-around from the cashier about a really healthy brand of cereal. She went back to the aisle twice to pick out another brand. None could be purchased through SNAP. I was so flummoxed that I paid her entire tab. She had three little kids, dammit!

        • nightmoth

          I like the cut of your jib.

          • Hutch

            And I like the wit of your snark!

        • CJTX

          Good on you! Did you catch that bit from some state, I forget, where one of those “food stamp people can’t buy lobster” bills included a provision against buying beans with food stamps.

          I was like, beans? Beans are a healthy, plentiful, cheap food. What the fuck is wrong with beans?!? How are they like lobster? Whole poor civilizations survived on fucking beans!

          Lotta rage over that one.

          • bupkus23

            I kinda remember that – and the issue was that one couldn’t buy the “large economy size” beans ( thus saving money ), but had to buy only the smaller cans/bags ( which, of course, cost more on the more in the long run )…..

            Does every state legislator have to go back to 3rd grade arithmatic class?

          • CJTX

            IKR? Also, beans like last forever. That’s good poor people food for when you run out of your meager assistance before the next disbursement. As with the economy size bag thing, it’s like they’re trying to make climbing out of poverty as difficult as possible (BECAUSE THEY ARE).

          • Paul

            Can that really be true? Beans?

          • CJTX

            Yes indeed, the magical fruit.

        • Chuck

          WIC,women,infants and children program, checks restrict what brand can be purchased. SNAP cards pay for chips, candy, and soda, not restrictive at all as far as food goes at least in Wisconsin and Arizona.

        • Paul

          That’s why you’re going to the noodly colander in the sky.

    • HobbesEvilTwin

      Is it just me, or shouldn’t that Wal-Mart cashier have stepped and told the nice lady to kindly fuck the fucking fuck off?

      oh, and she seems nice.

      • theCryptofishist

        I dunno. The lady might have taken it to the manager, and I don’t trust a wall mart manager to properly support employees.

      • xy

        as a retail employee you have absolutely nothing to say to anyone unless they ask you a question. unless you want to be fired, then you can go to town.

    Same thing happened to me at an Albertsons in Amarillo years ago. The kid at the register wasn’t going to let me buy lobster and shrimp with my food stamps.

    • borninatrailer

      Look at this trolling.

      • JMP

        I’m pretty sure that’s meant as a joke on how the Republicans actually believe this is something that happens.

        • borninatrailer

          I certainly hope so.

          • SnarkOff

            It’s called #sarcasm and it is used here often.

          • theCryptofishist

            It’s one of the ways we block out the pain.

            Ooohh, is it really? I had no idea!

      • Msmlg1979

        • Indiepalin

          Goddam it. Trolling or not, this really happened to me.

          • borninatrailer

            As someone that literally posted here on Wonkette a sad tale about being a kid and my poor mother buying me a lobster with food stamps on my birthday, it just pushed a button.

            It kind of makes me want to have a discussion about views towards what *is* proper behavior with SNAP benefits but I have a feeling that’ll go to shit quick. But that’s got fuck all to do with some moron harassing someone in the line, let alone the cashier actually refusing to check out your entirely valid purchase.

    • Spotts1701

      Buying lobster in Amarillo is a leap of faith to start with.

        Having to eat jello salad isn’t nearly punishment enough for this woman.

      • harryr

    • Ryan Denniston

      This.

    • Vicious Babushka

      Actually there is no “Freedom To Harass Strangers At The Supermarket” mentioned in the Constitution. I believe that is called “Disturbing the Peace” and it’s against the law in most places.

      • Paul

        Intentional infliction of emotional distress. It’s a tort so you get money for it.

        Once she pays her general debt to society for disturbing the peace, she pays her personal debt to you. Then you take her fucking money and buy lobsters and champagne.

        BTW, if I’m on food stamps and want ” VERBOTEN!!” lobsters, what’s to stop me from having a friend pay cash for the crustaceans then swapping for the “legal”
        groceries I just bought?

  • beavertank

    I bet people like that woman would be very glad to bring back slavery, as long as you described it as “the free market effectively valuing production resources in order to reduce overheads and increase profits”.

    The fact that it does so at the cost of basic human dignity shouldn’t bother her, after all, she’s not a “bleeding heart fucking liberal”.

  • Cismontane

    As a self-respecting over-privileged snob from a part of the People’s Republic of the Left Coast where there are no Wal Marts at all in sight, I’m thinking about saying something about women who shop at Wal Mart attacking the slightly less privileged also shopping at Wal Mart. But I won’t.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      I admire your self-restraint, and I will honor it by also refraining from commenting on women who shop at Walmart attacking the slightly less privileged also shopping at Walmart. If I did comment on her, I’d just get banhammered anyway.

  • Scooby

    She reminds me of some DICKensian character.

  • jmhm

    I wish her ill.

  • Zippy W Pinhead

    Dear stupid meddling bitch, no it is NOT your money buying those food stamps, it’s EVERYBODY’S money, including us bleeding heart libtards who are sick and tired of your selfish fucking whining. In fact, it’s probably some of that father’s money too, given that he just told your dumb ass that he finished a 50-60 hour work week where he also paid taxes. The truth is, the vast majority of people on food stamps only use the them for a short duration, meaning they’ve likely been productive taxpayers- JUST LIKE YOU- and likely have been contributing to the pool their whole lives. Now, they are using a portion of the money they helped contribute in their time of need. What they don’t need is some self righteous cunt like you publicly shaming them, especially considering there are probably plenty of tax deductions you take advantage of and believe you’re entitled to use.

    tl;dr STFU you dumb Drumpf supporter

    • jmhm

      Also: speaking as a new yorker, me and my fellow libtards in the Blue donor states are paying the bills for folks in the red welfare states to educate your children, even if folks don’t appear to be taking advantage of that. Just, you know, saying.

            Sure. I’m just saying, she’s a double legacy. Her mom was actually her dad’s supervisor in his first law job out of school.

          • bupkus23

            Actually, she was his “adviser” at that job, not supervisor. It was kinda a “mentor” relationship, not a boss/employee type thing – which is why it was okay that they started dating…

          • jmhm

            Huh. I thought she was the associate who supervised his group. AAR, at that point, she was ahead of him on the career front, although he did have the law review thing going on. They’re an equally accomplished couple, is what I’m getting at, so it seemed weird that the linked article didn’t mention that it was her alma mater too (and she wasn’t a legacy).

      IKR? Perhaps it’s not the first time something like this happened and he knows it was just easier and faster to say, “go tell a congressman”. Especially after working a 50 or 60 work week and probably dinner time coming up. I haven’t watched the video cause blood pressure, but I loved that line about contacting her local representative. I thought that was a perfect way of shutting her down.

  • vivian

    Well if she ever needs CPR and I’m there, I’ll just have to remind her that poverty is not usually a choice, but rather a series of circumstances from which it can be difficult to emerge without assistance. Eh? What’s that? Stop talking and help you?…. nah

      • data_ninja

        Yeah, but she must (by her logic) have MORE than the person she was yelling at. So not only was she cementing her higher place in society, she was also doing her due diligence of pointing out the person below her by shaming them. It’s one of the perks of having ‘just a bit more’.

        God forbid she actually becomes aware of real problems and how they’re caused. If people are distracted enough to keep fighting with each other, then the other people can get away with more shit.

          Or howsabout that good old parable about the sheeps and the goats (and you don’t have to be a fucking messiah to figure out which side of that divide Ms. Shouty is on), Matthew 25:31-46?

          He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. 36 I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’

          37 “Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you a drink? 38 When did we see you as a stranger, and take you in; or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?’ 40 “The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers , you did it to me.’

          41 Then he will say also to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you didn’t give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t take me in; naked, and you didn’t clotheme; sick, and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’

          44 “Then they will also answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help you?’ 45 “Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you didn’t do it to one of the least of these, you didn’t do it to me.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    I bet if I had been standing in a checkout lane behind this lady 11 years ago, right after Hurricane Katrina, and I told her I was a hurricane victim, she’d have been all over me with kindness and prayers and good wishes and probably invited me to her church (this happened to me almost daily). If I’d told her the government gave Louisiana $11 billion dollars to help us, she’d have said that was fine with her.

    But of course I am white. If I had been black standing in that checkout lane, it would have been a different story.

    And if I’d lost everything because my employer moved to China, and the bank foreclosed on my house and my car, and my husband hadn’t paid child support for 5 years because he was in prison, and we have 3 kids, so now I was getting housing assistance and food stamps, she’d have berated me just like she did this poor man.

    My point is, you never know what someone’s story is, so don’t throw stones. I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard friends of mine do the very thing this woman did. Needless to say, they are all white, they never lost a job, they never lost a house, they never got sick, they never got divorced, etc.

      I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said “When did it become a sin to help the poor?” Republicans have been remarkably good at making it sound like poor people are bleeding the country dry, meanwhile it’s been the very wealthy and corporations who’ve screwed us all raw.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        It’s not unlike the “opioid epidemic.” I looked it up last week, found several reports that said 1.2 million Americans are addicted to prescription pain killers, while 25.3 million suffer from intransigent pain and now can’t get meds. That’s sort of out of balance, don’t you think? Not that 1.2 million addicted people is not worth being concerned about, but it does seem unfair to punish 25 million sick people for it. It’s the same thing with public assistance – most of the welfare and Medicaid and Medicare fraud is committed by doctors, hospitals, clinics and lawyers, but Republicans never talk about that.

            the US was pretty good for a good long time and then some dumb actor became President and his bad ideas are worshipped for a reason that will never be explained.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            The reason is that he made a number of people very rich while simultaneously promoting unregulated capitalism as patriotic behavior. Then the greedy capitalists bought the media, which they used to preach the new religion – the worship of money. Once you give an elite caste the right to practice uncontrolled greed under a mask of righteousness, democracy and the rights of the people will inevitably be sacrificed to Mammon.

Tomorrow, you’re jobless, your car is wrecked, you can’t make rent, and dinner may be ramen, or not at all.

            Exactly.

          • CJTX

            I like to refer to myself as a realistic optimist or an optimistic realist. I still haven’t decided which is better.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Irony of ironies, this woman probably already receives some form of gov assistance or another.
      Fuck her with a bag full of pointy bleeding heart liberal votes

    • MarkM

      You, ultimately, are a nicer person than me. I ABSOLUTELY wish all of the very worst things to happen to this cow. After all, that shit’s going to happen to someone – why shouldn’t it be one who eminently, richly deserves it? Let her take the bullet for someone ho doesn’t deserve it at all. Seems like poetic justice to me.

      • Msmlg1979

        It doesn’t work that way, though, darlin’. It would be nice if it did. What I DO know is she is lonely and miserable, because no one likes or cares for her, and I would rather be poor like I am, than live like THAT any day. Being her is punishment in itself.

        • MarkM

          It’s only punishment if she is marginally self-aware enough to realize what an utterly loathsome human chancre she is, and the fact torments her. I doubt very much that that’s the case however. Unfortunately, I’m sure she couldn’t wait to tell her BFF or husband about the welfare guy she gave what for to in the checkout line at Walmart, and that she was quite satisfied with herself.
          Do I really think that if all the plagues were to rain down on her head, it would spare some decent person some torment? Of course not. But I will never feel sympathy for someone as disgustingly, brutally judgmental and hateful as this bitch. So I say: bring on the plagues…

          • Msmlg1979

            Who said anything about sympathy? I didn’t. You don’t think miserable people like her see other people, like that young man, and torment them *because* they’re filled with bitterness and unhappiness? Do you think her marriage is joyful and fulfilling? Her friendship anything but manufactured drama and constant back-stabbing? She may have felt satisfied after, but only until all her misery starts screaming again, and she has to fix it in the only way she knows how-hurting others in an effort to make them feel the emptiness and unhappiness she feels, inside, all the time. Happy people don’t feel any need to speak to others that way. Fulfilled people mind their own business. You don’t have to be self-aware to be a bitter, lonely, sad witch. Wish what you want on her. That’s up to you. From where I stand, with the things I value, there is nothing I could wish on her that could compare to how awful it would be to BE her.

          • MarkM

            You may have a point. And referring to sympathy was incorrect. But don’t be so sure that she is friendless, and that no one likes her or cares for her. She may well have plenty of like-minded friends in her circle, who watch Fox News, exclaim breathlessly over the latest “scoop” from Matt Drudge, and are proud of being Trump supporters. There are, unfortunately, a lot of really twisted, hateful people in the world, who think they’re just peachy, and that those of us who rage at injustice, bigotry and stupidity are just a pack of “stoopid libruls”…

          • Msmlg1979

            If the only people who liked or cared for me were the kind of people who would yell at a man in public for buying food for his child, I would jump off a bridge. If you lack basic empathy, you lack the ability to experience meaningful connections with people. I think you know how acutely I’m aware of twisted, hateful people in the world. Now. You are entitled to your point of view. I support that, and never said anything to the contrary. I am not going to argue with you anymore, but I will say, you are impressive up there on your soapbox. So forceful!! Swoon! ;)

          • MarkM

            I wouldn’t even call this an argument frankly. We’re just looking at this from slightly different perspectives. Although I will say that the existence of substantial numbers of assholes who are perfectly satisfied with their assholiness is rather borne out by the fact that Drumpf is going to be the Republican nominee…
            Off soapbox now, until the next time…

            If there’s an article on math, fixing things and all the other gross/confounding/dirty jobs people should always do for me, electronics, or sportsball, I will keep my mouth shut while I loiter in the corner with a vague look of distaste on my face.

            And once you go down the road of hating only those who “deserve” it, it’s hard to stop the inevitable mutation of your standards about who deserve what. Or, as Gandalf said to Frodo: “‘Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends”.

          • Msmlg1979

            Excellent post for 2 reasons. You are absolutely right, and I love Gandalf.

          • Jennaratrix

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      She can go to the Walton heirs and bitch about the millions in payroll subsidies they get

      I’m sure it’s on her itinerary right after a stop on Wall Street and rail against carried interest.

  • Toadette

    Is it bad that my first remark — had I witnessed this in person — would have been “You better step off, ya fat sow. You look like you can spare a little.”

    Later I’d probably feel bad for any nice, heavy set folks I offended, but man, some people just need a verbal punch in the face.

    • Logic of Color

      Since there was a child involved (which is really sick), I would have used this as an opportunity to teach my child how to be gracious and civilized under duress and how to rise above classless people. Aaaaand then I woke up.

      • Toadette

        Haha, well, I know myself well enough to know the minute she cursed at me it woulda been ugly. I’ve got a baaaad mouth.

        Things like “You need to get your hand out of the icing can and go for a fucking run.”

        or

        “Don’t make me roll your rolly-polly ass out of this place.”

        or

        “You may be paying for him now, but no doubt I’ll be paying for your fuckin insulin and angioplasty soon, bitch.”

        I do know I’d have paid for that dude’s groceries, though.

        • Logic of Color

          How ’bout, after she curses, say “nice. Do you suck your mothr’s dick with that mouth?”. Eh, sorry I’m not that creative.

    • nightmoth

      I would have confronted her, for sure.

    • Jenny

      Yeah this was not the hood because 1) everyone has food stamps 2) say some shit like that and you’d be literally chased out the store or find someone (s) waiting for you in the parking lot.

      My brother was lamenting about the town we live in now. It has the vaneer of a nice country town, but the people are snotty, self centered, and really mean, entitled.

      I’ve never been flipped off, yelled at, raged at by white women as many times as I have in Georgetown, TX. The hood rat in me struggles to keep it together because the urge to straight knock those hoes right on their ass is strong.

      Say what you will about the harshness of thugs in the inner city, but there were consequences and I don’t mean the “law” because lol yeah right you don’t call the cops.

      There’s none of it here. And it’s a dynamic I’ll never get used to.

      I live in a small, rural town. It’s very white and has some pretty “religious” folks. I was in the checkout line at our local grocery store recently and a Black woman 2 people ahead of me was holding things up because she didn’t have enough cash to make up the difference and was fishing around. Everyone was patient – finally a woman in the next aisle said, “How much do you owe?” It was $2.10. She reached into her purse and gave the money to the cashier. Told the woman not to worry, it can happen to any of us.
      Another time, elderly women were being targeted in the parking lot and having their purses grabbed. One 80-year-old woman started hitting the attacker with her purse, and screaming. Two guys were coming out with a case of beer and hit him over the head with it. They stayed until the cops came.
      I have a lot of stories about good people taking care of each other. I lived in the “big city” for decades and still marvel at the difference.

      • CJTX

        Those are great stories! That kind of stuff makes me feel good inside, even if I’m not the one doing it.
        As for big cities, you’re mostly right. Although I was happy to note that when my car died at a SUPER BUSY freeway exit in Miami, like 4 people pulled over and jumped out to help me push my car down the street. Maybe they just didn’t want to sit in the traffic jam I was causing, but it was very nice of them.

            Why is manhood in these books always demonstrated by killing something you love? Why is sacrificing half your heart seen as a necessary component of adulthood for males? Like I said, rageblisters.

            Or fantasy. For some reason, fantasy is not serious literature and it all can be read by kids. I believe in “family” entertainment, although not as bland and mild as much of it turns out. We are afraid to be honest to children, and it makes us stupid.

            I think that reading adult books to children is a good idea–depending on the books and on the kids. Always good to stretch literately, but not to the point of snapping.

          • CJTX

        Observe: the Problem of Tiny Tim:

      • Gleem-McShinez

        Duh! Government should stay out of Scrooge’s business! Scrooge knew exactly how to recognize the value of an easily exploitable employee who has no option but to work for a pittance! Government shouldn’t interfere in the profitable arrangement Scrooge has carefully worked out.
        If you start giving workers the luxury of eating, or an escape from mortal danger like “medicine” that does not extract more profit-generating labor for the employer in exchange, that’s just WRONG.

      Do NOT make me feel sorry for Ted. (I’m going to throw up now.)

      • Vegan and Tiara

        It’s so funny to me that Ted is saying to the rube “Trump’s making a chump out of you, he’s lying to you.” Ummm…Ted? Hasn’t your ENTIRE party been lying to the rubes for DECADES? Do any of you actually believe the Waltons de Arkansas, or the KochBros need ANOTHER tax break?

        • jmhm

          It’s the tragedy of the commons. Why would Ted Cruz care if the country goes to hell if it means he gets a few donations? You notice Senator Greater Ivy and his New York banker wife went somewhere the voters weren’t going to be burdened with too much education to run for office.

            Oh, you’ll see, Mr. Skeptic!
            Funniest article I’ve read in a while had the thesis “it’s just a coincidence that the economy always sucks when Republicans are running the country.” Obviously it was written by one of the sane ones, since he was at least not denying the reality that the economy is always bad when they’re in charge.
            Ayup, total coincidence.

    I am afraid this is going to be the new normal. The rise of Trump means that all public decorum can go to shit now. If he can say dumb things and everybody gives him a pass cos he only speaks his mind, it empowers a lot of dumb assholes. And we will see the newly empowered asshats preaching the gospel of Trump at all places now. Before the newly formed militia wing of republican party with suspiciously brown looking uniforms patrol the streets enforcing compliance.

      ‘Tell it like it is’ is no longer the rude option, true enough.

      That is the aspect of the Trumpf phenomenon that horrifies me the most. When no comment, from Mexicans are rapists to heroes who don’t get captured, was repugnant enough to drive the speaker from the public view forever, the country started down the spiral to hell.

      I was at Trader Joe’s around Chrstmas time when they sell a fab Danish pastry called kringle. I’m not exactly skinny, so a dried-up stick insect of a woman queried me on what I was doing with it and was I going to eat it. I said, “My husband has cancer and is undergoing chemo. I’m buying it for him and if I have a piece it’s none of your fucking business.” She sputtered, turned red, and stomped off while other customers clapped. Bitch.

      One night, I saw some military vessel docked nearby. I couldn’t tell exactly, but it looked a lot like a guided missile cruiser. It immediately made me think of Iran Air 655, which was blown out of the sky with 290 souls aboard by a similar vessel.

      Hi there. Thought I’d post back here so as not to bore everybody. Still waiting for the hummingbirds………..seems like weeks of cold rain, plus we’ve had a severe frost warning tonight and last night so they are down in the valleys if they are in western Mass yet. What we do have are rose breasted grosbeaks all of a sudden. Colorful suckers that make quite a combination sitting on the same feeder as the goldfinches, most of whom have hit their screaming yellow prime. Toss in a purple finch and hairy woodpecker or two (males w/ the red on the head) and it makes quite a picture.

      Which I have, but can’t figure out how to attach in these messages. I’m a pathetic Luddite. But imagine it, with the daffodils in the background matching the color of the finches.

          Alas, no FB. I signed up for it about 5 yrs. ago only to “friend” a buddy who was dying of cancer. Kinda weird, but I guess understandable. We were in constant contact via phone and email but he needed that extra validation from the electronic realm too so I joined. Then I started to get messages from boring people with boring lives that I didn’t care to deal with so I bailed from FB. Never liked “sharing” with the entire damn world. I live in a small hill town of 800, on a back road surrounded by state property, for a reason. Is there a way to go on FB and retain anonymity? I’d gladly sign up just to communicate with you if I could sneak in and out and not be contacted by everybody.

          On a related note, this reply is late b/c I slept in. Playing hooky today (supposed to be 70 degrees) to go for a long ride on the big ass Harley I inherited from that dear friend. Never had ridden even a mini bike as a youngster, then got this big beast. Flew down to Charleston SC to pick it up and rented a truck to get it home. Learned in my driveway and on the road I live on which is paved for a couple of miles. Most folks learn on a smaller (250 cc) bike but I thought pfffft… I’ll learn on this. I wanted to take a course but they were all booked for 3 weeks so I got thick and decided to learn on my own. Still alive and walking so I’m doing OK. Only dumped it once that first season, and then it was at 15 miles per hour so I got out of it with just a broken collar bone. Amazingly enough it wasn’t my fault. The other guy was blinded by the setting sun and didn’t see me but I sure as hell saw him and was trying to maneuver around him when he drifted even further.

          Indigo buntings!!! Aren’t you the fortunate gal. Only saw one once and had no idea what I was looking at, but was mesmerized nonetheless.

          Hawks are a fact of life. Red tails don’t mess with my feeders but sharp shinned and Cooper’s hawks sure do. That’s why I put my Xmas tree on the deck near the feederd…..it offers cover from predators. Why don’t you buy a live, potted Xmas tree this year? It will last through the winter with proper care and you can plant it in the spring right next to the feeders to give the little targets safe haven. It may very well be all the hummers need to feel safe enough to come back to your feeders.

          Peanuts??!! Thistle seed??!! Quite the expansive menu at your restaurant. I just buy sunflower hearts, already shelled.
          I too used to cater a full smorgasbord but whenever I ran out of suet or thistle seed the birds would eat the sunflower hearts avidly. So screw’em. They’ll get one item only, they’ll like it and they’ll like liking it!

    I have talked before about how my husband and I have SNAP. He has a full-time job, a 1099, and I also have a part time job.

    He works for a national corporation, has been there for almost 2 years, and hasn’t had a raise. They actually gave him one last year, but they never actually put it on his paycheck. We gave up asking about it because he was told that he could go to work somewhere else if he was unhappy with his pay. I hope it goes without saying that, if there were a better job, he would have it.

    There are no more available hours at my job. If I had more hours, I wouldn’t be eligible for SNAP. Well, SNAP notified me last week that unless I work more hours, I will no longer be eligible, anyway. See what they did there? Since I don’t have kids, the fact that I am underpaid doesn’t matter.

    No matter that we share 1 old car, and it’s been breaking down, and my husband has been walking to work. Never mind that I am hungry about 30% of the time. Never mind that my SNAP benefits were cut to 1/3 of what they were, and I still don’t know why. Never mind that I won’t have a job when I can’t beg rides anymore.

    I don’t say any of this to get pity. I say it because there are a lot of us that work hard and still can’t get by. You don’t get rich in this country by working hard, you get rich by being born rich and by sucking off the government tit. If hard work made you rich, me and a lot of the poor people I know would have more money than we could spend. But we are eligible for government programs instead.

    So, maybe the lady that was so pissed off about this guy getting SNAP will read this, and she can be really happy. And I bet that she doesn’t know that 50% of our federal budget goes to for profit war while less than 1% goes to SNAP. But that’s just fine with her, I suppose.

    I’m not subsidized by SNAP. The CEO’S of my husband’s corporations are. They steal wages from working people to make up wages that they refuse to pay, and the government let’s them. So how about instead of screaming at the underpaid guy, you scream at the CEO’S that are stealing from BOTH of you?

    But then we could not blame the poor. And Christian America loves to blame the poor. They think they learned that from jesus. Because jesus hated the poor, amirite?

      “There are no more available hours at my job. If I had more hours, I wouldn’t be eligible for SNAP. Well, SNAP notified me last week that unless I work more hours, I will no longer be eligible, anyway.”

      • Raysa_Lite

        Thanks for the kind words. Always welcome.

        I’m in SC. We also have no insurance. We are eligible for medicaid but graham and demint opted out of the 90% federally funded option. People with kids under 18 get snap and medicaid. My husband works with a woman who has a son that just turned 18. They were both kicked off medicaid, he has chronic asthma and she has diabetes. I honestly don’t see either one of them living that long.

        The greed in this country is killing people. Unfortunately, I am close to the front of that line. I was eligible for food assistance for about 6 months before I actually applied 18 months ago. I dropped about 30 pounds when I finally decided that I was quite literally starving.

        I’m terrified, honestly. I know what it means to be hungry, but I can’t shrink that much more. And, if I can manage to forget myself for a minute, EVERYONE’S benefits were cut. What about the people with kids?? What are they going to do, with cuts like this?

        I have no cable, and I have Internet on a phone because my husband’s 1099 required it. I have no where to cut. We both had full time jobs 10 years ago, I am college educated. We have fallen so far, and it’s not getting better.

        But I am the queen of adjusting. I will manage. It’s just exhausting, living this way.

        • HazooToo

          Do you have family or friends out of state? Anyone who can let you crash on their couch for a bit while you get resettled? You need to get out of there. ASAP. Maybe e-mail Rebecca and ask her nicely to let you rent her Wonkabago for a few months.

          • Raysa_Lite

            My mother in law lives in NH. We will eventually end up there.

            I’m just a little stubborn and a lot pissed. I have about an acre of land with a mobile home on it. I paid it off almost 3 years ago. It’s not fancy, thank god I didn’t get a nice house with a 30 year mortgage, I would be homeless right now. My plan was to retire early and travel. Then everything went to shit.

            Why should I have to leave what I worked so hard to get? It’s not right.

            My husband and I are early 40s, and we can’t wait until our 60s to see a doctor. That alone will push us north. And I am grateful to have the option.

          • HazooToo

            I’m so sorry things are so shitty for you, and I hope like hell that the Dems take SC soon, and things get better before you have to leave everything. I really do. But at least you do have NH <3

        • tman2

          If you can, it may be better to move to a more progressive state. Or depending on age, if one of you join the military, there are benefits that most people could not even comprehend. Free medical, dental, housing, etc. If you pick the right career field, there is very little chance that you will be deployed, and after four years you will be exposed a myriad of opportunites; PLUS FREE COLLEGE. I speak from experience. I enlisted late after receiving my college degree. It was a struggle for a few years, but when I left the military, I had several excellent job offers. Bonus if you get a career field that requires a security clearance.

    • VikingAPRNCNP

      The woman works for Walmart and is probably eligible for snap herself.

      I am quite certain that she sits in the pew every Sunday and totally tunes out the new testament readings.

      IMO the conservative churches love the old testament quite a bit more than the new testament. Forgetting that Christ came to bring a new law to love thy neighbor. The spirit of the new testament is to bring justice and mercy to the afflicted.

      • greyXstar

        That’s exactly how it is. It’s the reason so few of them live by anything Jesus said. They read it once and went, “that’s hippie libtard shit” and never went past the birth story ever again.

    • Courser

      And THAT really grinds my gears.

      Here’s how I think it should work: If a person works 40 hours a week at your business, they should be able to afford a roof over their head, food on the table and decent health coverage (one way or another). If not, it should work like workman’s comp. The company will then have to pay more into the system because the state is partially supporting your workers (and thereby increasing everyone’s taxes on your behalf).

  • MausFeet

    Such empathy! So much compassion for others! If only we all could be as Christian as this very nice woman most surely is, none would want for the shouted encouragement to stop being takers. Alas, not enough people berate others for just going about their lives as best they can. Will we never learn?

    • Courser

      I live in a part of town where I suspect almost 30% of folks are on SNAP, so there aren’t many supermarket shouting matches going on over it. Also, I almost always use self checkout, so they’d have to practically stand on top of me to see that if was using SNAP.

      I’ve always thought it pathetic when people go out of their way just to shit on another person. It’s disgusting and more than once I’ve called people on it when I’ve seen them do it someone else.

      • MausFeet

        I’ve been trying to do that too, in instances that seem safe. So thank you for being a voice of reason out in public! I have to think that many people like this woman say things like this because they truly think those around them agree, and keeping quiet reinforces it. Sigh.

  • data_ninja

    Slightly OT: So, I had a conversation with a friend today who is a single mother of 3, and doesn’t want to take any kind of food stamps or ‘handouts’ because primarily of the stigma that comes with it. It’s a huge matter of pride with her, because she knows people who are on some form of assistance, and she looks down on them. I can’t say if she looks down on them because society (or the local community) also does, or if it’s some personal grudge about how she has a job while trying to raise the kids on her own.

    And I’m not sure if it’s related or not, but the actual conversation was how to handle an ex. One of her kids’ dad, who has been abusive essentially to all of them at one point in time or another for years. I recommended a restraining order, because it seems quite obvious the guy is psychotic. Jealousy issues/control freak kinda dude. She was convinced that if he tried anything, her believes her neighbors would call the cops and the guy would get arrested. She didn’t want to get the police involved, unless something happened. I tried to explain how you need to do everything that you can to prevent that situation from happening to start with, rather than waiting and reacting. In my currently frustrated mind, this somehow is all correlated with the food assistance issue, but I’m not connecting the dots how.

    Abusive relationships are evil, and seeing it first hand is goddamn awful thing.

    /rant

    • SnarkOff

      No comment on the abusive relationships, but as for the food stamps, I hope she gets them and uses them. And I hope that she makes a bunch of flyers and carries them in her purse, and that if anyone at a grocery store ever gives her shit, she pulls out a flyer and hands it to them. It should say that only $36 of any person’s taxes goes to WIC benefits, and it should explain that she works three jobs and still can’t make ends meet…whatever her story is. If it were me I would just hand my critics a flyer and say nothing else.

    • WIDTAP

      Connected by the fact that life can throw a lot of shit at you. Some of it may be your own doing, and some of it is not. In any case, a social safety net is a means to restart. I don’t begrudge a man or woman a moment in the safety net. I just thank God it’s not my turn to catch the shit.

      • Robyn Ryan

        We forget how oppressive it can be. Been there… Not fun.

    • HazooToo

      I think the two issues ARE related. She doesn’t want to “cause a fuss”. She thinks of food stamps as begging for charity, and is ashamed that she can’t support her kids herself. She thinks of getting the police involved is bothering them with her over-reactions, and she’s ashamed of herself for being abused and letting her kids be put in danger by the “winner” she picked. All you can do, unfortunately, is be there for her and try to show her how “causing a fuss” can empower her and become a temporary stepping stone to a brighter future for her kids. If they eat right and aren’t afraid for their mother or themselves, they learn better. She can afford to spend a little more time making sure they are doing well in school and spending time with positive friends. They can earn assistance for college, or even scholarships, and get jobs that pay more than minimum wage. She can break the cycle of fear and poverty, but she has to be willing to do it for their sake. It’s not clear whether she values herself enough to just personally want a better life, but hopefully, that will come as she sees the difference she made for them.

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        I think you have it there. Somehow, in her head, asking for any help is somehow a bad thing.
        That is a tough way to go through a tough situation. For the sake of the kids, someone needs to step up, and it ought to be her. I hope she can do so.

        • kareemachan

Being in a high cost area (Washington DC), you’d get these young married couples right out of AIT, and since there was no on-base housing for them, and the paycheck didn’t begin to cover things, it became almost a standard part of their inprocessing to send them over to sign up for food stamps and other “welfare” benefits. Unfortunately.

I was working on a grant – 12 hours a week, $12 an hour. I was living with my parents, no frills, no car. I bought Diet Coke with my precious funds because it was the only way I could buy toilet paper and feminine supplies (by returning cans once a month). I can just imagine how this woman would have reacted to my Diet Coke. I am very grateful my kids didn’t have to starve.

    I was once called a ‘leech on society’ while I was volunteering at a health fair (annual event for low cost screenings sponsored by a local TV station). I was with an older woman whom I didn’t know well, but strongly suspect was extremely conservative. I quietly said that I was trying to give back to the community (by fucking volunteering) and blinked back any tears (I would NOT give that mean lady the satisfaction). My associate gave me a hug and said nice words and I moved on. I was quite surprised when I heard my associate speaking to a bunch of sheriff’s deputies about the incident almost a year later – she hadn’t said much, but it seems she was more outraged that I was!

    I just sat in my space and felt good about things.

    I was on SNAP and Medicaid during the recession. There weren’t any jobs at that time, so I went to grad school rather than doing nothing which also gave me time to volunteer. So fucking sue me. I used that time productively. And I still do a ton of volunteering.

    all people like this lady have no idea the privilege of their life.

    i’ve had to listen to my boss(who is proud of never having had to interview for a job because his dad started the company) go on and on the last couple of days about how ‘welfare’ and WIC(this was brought up by a different employee who is also stupid, my boss has less than no idea what WIC is) are the worst things ever and how you can make $45 grand a year by being on welfare programs. it’s all i can do to not punch him. he’s going to die young because he doesn’t go to the doctor and has the worst diet i’ve ever seen. if i was invited to the funeral by his family i wouldn’t go. i can only hope that he has a stroke that debilitates him so he has to see what the fuck happens when things go shitty for you.

    tl;dr my boss is exactly like this lady and is one of few people i kinda hope dies.

    • dianebk

      I had a boss who was a raging conservative when it came to things like fair wages, unemployment benefits, SNAP and all kinds of social programs. It was all coming out of her pocket, out of her taxes, she was a small business owner and it was so damned unfair and the system was rigged and and and…

      She went on and on about people on unemployment getting free money for so long that one day I finally snapped and let her have it. I told her unemployment benefits are not “free money” because we get taxed on it, whether or not you’re working when tax time rolls around, and that when my father left us, my mom had to go on food stamps to feed her two girls, and that was even with military benefits and being able to grocery shop on base, and that she (my boss) knew exactly how much money I was making (only a dollar over minimum wage per hour) and she KNEW my husband had two jobs and I STILL couldn’t afford to get the cell phone she needed me to have in order for her to reach me when she wasn’t in the office because she had elected not to have landlines installed in the office.

      That shut her up for awhile. No offer to pay for a cell phone, though, unlike one of my husband’s bosses, who needed him to be available at odd hours, so purchased one for him.

      We eventually scraped enough together for me to get the cheapest phone possible on a pay-as-you-go plan, and that worked okay, but I refused to make calls for her unless she was offering to pay for the minutes. She never did, so I never did.

      That job ended a year ago. Since then I found out that I was so poor I qualified for LifeLine, and got a free phone out of it. She would have loved me having a phone, but I know it would have just killed her that it was a government program that got it for me.

      • xy

        you got one of the vaunted Obamaphones? i thought those were only legend!

        as far as bosses and how dumb they can be, the owner of the company and father of my boss never talks about that kind of stuff around us employees because he is not stupid. he may very well be a bigger ass than his son but at least he’s smart enough not let us know. that’s my only real problem, be an ass when i have a choice of whether to hear it or not. i wouldn’t call it a hostile work environment because it’s pretty rare and i usually don’t have to be around my boss much.

        • dianebk

          My boss was actually pretty cool about most things, but the moment the conversation became political…oh my god. The other girl in the office knew to just keep her head down and say nothing. To this day I don’t know if she was a liberal, a conservative, or even voted at all.

          And that Obamaphone? The ironic thing is that the LifeLine program was started by St. Ronnie, and expanded to include cell phones by George W. But, you know – fuck Obama, and all that.

          P.S.
          The phone sucks donkeyballs, but it has unlimited calls and text, so I can’t complain – the stupid thing is free.

          But good lord, is it ever cheap as fuck. The iPhone it is not. It’s an “Amgoo”.

  • HanBarbara

    Have a family member who went from welfare to teaching medicine at a major US College. She got an LVN at 2 year college, then a degree from a 4 year nursing school, then Post graduate nursing training, and medical school.
    It wasn’t easy- she said there were days she was so exhausted she felt suicidal, and only her kid kept her going. She has paid back the government 100 times for any benefits she got. If she had heard this woman, she’d tear a hunk out of her.

    So in Islam we have this thing called “Zakat,” which is like a charitable tax on your wealth that you give back to the community. It’s a religious obligation for anyone above a certain income level. Here’s a Zakat calculator, if you’d like to know how much you would give: http://www.zakat.org/donate/zakat-calculator/

    Do other religions have that? I seem to recall that Mormons give a tithe to the church.

    • Flappy Paddle Gearbox

      Naah. Neo-Evangelism preaches an Ayn Rand-esque from of Christianity that is spiteful and selfish in its reverence for their savior. “He died on the Cross for ME!”

      And if you do your history, this “Blessed by God=Blessed Bank Account” came over with the pilgrims, since that was one of their tenants that got them thrown out of a few countries.

      Add anti-intellectualism, worshipping wealth and wealthy people, and the notion that poor people are “temporarily embarrassed millionaires”, and roast for 40 years.

    • Zyxomma

      Judaism, of course: http://www.jewfaq.org/tzedakah.htm From the link: “Business Week’s 2006 list of The 50 Most Generous Philanthropists included at least 15 Jews. The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s list of the top 50 charitable donors in 2008 included sixteen Jews, according to a JTA article. In other words, Jews, who are only about 2% of the American population, are 30% of America’s most generous donors. Similarly, a 2003 study (reported in the Jewish Journal) found that 24.5% of all “mega-donors” (people who donate more than $10 million a year to charity) are Jewish. Nor is Jewish generosity limited to Jewish causes: while a few of the Jews in BW’s “Top 50″ list Jewish causes among their primary charitable targets, most don’t. Indeed, the Jewish Journal article laments the fact that the overwhelming majority of those Jewish mega-donations aren’t going to specifically Jewish causes.”

  • Left Coast Tom

    Clearly the screamy-shouty asshole lady doesn’t understand how hard this is for Wal-Mart’s shareholders, who are losing money because they’re invested in a store that caters to a typically lower-income crowd (like screamy-shouty asshole?) and because of increased income inequality together with public service cutbacks in predominantly lower-income red (redundancy noted) states Wal-Mart’s customers are finding it increasingly difficult to shop at Wal-Mart. If only Ms. Asshole would take a few seconds to consider the problem from the perspective from Wal-Mart’s shareholders I’m sure things would make more sense.

      He’s not on welfare. He works 50-60 hours a week, and uses EBT/SNAP to eat. Low wage jobs aren’t enough for rent, transportation, and food, and SNAP can help.

  • BurntAsparagus

    I signed up just to comment. I’m a wonkette lurker. When I was a kid we had super duper huge colorful tremendous food stamps. They came in a booklet and when you used it everyone in line knew. Here comes the gross poor people! My mom tried hard. My sister? Not so much. She’s made a living off of having kids and using welfare. There’s some that deserve and some that take advantage. This woman is a complete waste of humanity, but I’m so sick of this black and white, yes and no, right left attitude. Knee jerk reactions don’t help anyone, quit playing out the opening scene to Space Odyssey! Keep putting yourself in molds and that’s what you’ll become. Although real molds actually serve a purpose.

  • Lord-Nash

    “It’s tough for many Republicans, who want only for businesses to be allowed to pay people far less than they need to live on, and then for those people to not go on food stamps or accept any government aid whatsoever. And also for them not to have money to go to college to get a better job and to not have any health care so they don’t have access to preventative medicine, so that then when they get seriously ill or have a heart attack or an accident and get rushed to the hospital, they end up in debt for the rest of their lives. Is that really too much to ask? Couldn’t they be just a little more noble?”

    Hi Robyn Pennacchia, I think this is the first article of yours I’ve read at Wonkette and I just want to say hi and thanks!

  • Jennaratrix

    This woman is hateful. My hairdresser is a wonderful woman who had a baby a year ago, and he was born with club feet and epilepsy. She signed up for health insurance through the ACA (because as a self-employed hairdresser, she doesn’t have access to employer provided healthcare, and her boyfriend has shitty coverage through his work). Because of her income and needs, she was REQUIRED to sign up her baby for Medicaid, and she didn’t want to. She told them she works, and works hard, and wants to pay her fair share, but they explained that in order to get the care her baby needs, she had to, and it would work in conjunction with her ACA provided coverage. She is EMBARRASSED to tell people that she accepts Medicaid assistance for her child with severe congenital issues; embarrassed because of people like this woman. I almost burst into tears when she was telling me, and I got really mad; I told her that she’s been paying into the Medicaid system her entire working life, and that her situation is EXACTLY what it’s for; that she shouldn’t be ashamed of getting some help, that her baby deserves excellent health care, and anyone who would try to shame her should be shot. With votes. Or given club feet and epilepsy and no access to health care to address those issues.

    This woman has a lot of fucking nerve berating a man for feeding his children. I am not a fan of doxxing, but I hope someone she knows sees this and she is appropriately shamed for her lack of compassion.

    • smexys_sidekick

      I can sympathize with your friend. When my daughter was born, she was 3 months premature. The state put her on medicaid and SSI without my input and over my objections. I had insurance through my job so it wasn’t because I wasn’t working. She stayed in the NICU for 124 days. Her bill was $628,000. For 4 years we were in the system. For 4 yrs I had to put up with snid comments and judgmental attitudes from people who thought they had the right to not only know why we were on it but also the comment on it. The stress was unbelievable; I had a child I was fighting for and shiteheads to deal with on top of it. But I wouldn’t change a thing. Well, except for the texting mom who hit me causing me to go into labor. Most people in the system don’t want to be there. Most people are in the system because their kids well being is far more important then their pride.

      • Jennaratrix

        You know, I’ll tell you what. You tell anyone who gives you shit that if they really don’t want “their” tax money paying for your child’s care, they should go after the BITCH who was texting and driving and get her to pay your medical bills. Let’s put the blame where it belongs, shall we?

  • Flappy Paddle Gearbox

    Color me stupid, but isn’t this illegal to some degree? I know that the store has to take EBT as payment for food, but you can’t be “shamed” for using it, right?

    Even if this woman was another customer, I’m sure the store can’t allow this to occur.

    **Later, at the Transmission Shop**
    Ok, USDA sez that a program provider (the store) can be filed against for discrimination. The store has to not publicly discriminate against any EBT customers, but it’s a gray area with this lady’s rant.

    I’ve been a cashier and have shut things down like this fast. As in “Shut your mouth and mind the Social Contract; or would you like to talk to security and the police about harrassing another customer?”
