Food Stamps for Tattoos, Porn in Massachusetts

Written by Gary North on July 13, 2012

The governor of Massachusetts has vetoed the bill send up by the legislature to restrict the use of state food stamps to food.

Food stamps only for food? Why, this is an attack on the poor! The governor will not tolerate such a thought. The poor are entitled to a generous lifestyle at the expense of working stiffs!

The legislature has finally figured out that voters are beginning to be fed up. But the governor has not seen the light.

He signed a $32.5 billion budget.

According to the Boston Herald, which first reported the veto, the governor berated the legislature’s stab at banning the purchase of specific items like manicures, tattoos, guns, porn, body piercings, jewelry, and bail by saying the move was “political grandstanding” at a time when such reforms are already on track elsewhere.

He says it would be too hard to enforce any such bans.

Right. An EBT card leaves a trail of digits. But it would be too hard to follow this trail. The spending must go on.

Bankruptcy is coming. The governor of Massachusetts has not seen the handwriting on the wall. It’s too hard to read, I guess.

  1. They can get these things with their EBT card? Yet, they can't buy necessities like soap and toilet paper.

  2. His name says it all: the Devils Patrick. This not so funny clown is a fraud and just like Obama, a terrible bully that has goes out of his head when he can't get his own way and the sad part is that, if he was to run for re-election, the idiots in this state would vote for him once again. As long as we keep putting these type of politicians in office, including what we have for Attorney General, the Barney Franks, the Kennedys, the Kerrys and so on; this once great state will be lost for ever as GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED and we will have to pay for our stupidity very soon. +JMJ+

  3. USA Born & Raised says:

    I think Massachusetts needs to clean house, from the top down. What about it Massachusetts? You got game?

  4. How about food stamps for abortion? That will be the next liberal idea for their use. God help us. Did God really create people that are this dumb? Why Lord??????????????????

  5. Wow, this gov a real sweetheart…………..by all means keep them lazy bass turds fat dumb & happy, so they will all vote you back in, cause you be santa claus………good God, he should be run out of town right along with you know who.

  6. Funniest thing I’ve read today!!! Thanks.

  7. This is the height of lucacy…gee. whatdaya mean I have to buy food with food stamps..oops,,the EBT card?? whatare ya nuts? I am entitled to do whatever I want …I mean I get the card for free..I'm not paying so what if I use it for "goodies" and not food..what do you care?? Do YOU pay for it?? I mean..really..it is expensive to live in Mass…especially Boston.

  8. Sorry..the word is lunacy//didn't check.

  9. at some point, ecapees from this welfare kleptocracy will reach a critical mass. Less and less and less tax revenue equals tighteneing (verifying) eligibility, lower payments. The 'unrest' that follows will be something to see, from a great (lower tax jurisdiction) distance.
    PS those leaving are not all retirees, but some with valuable skills, degrees, certifications highly marketable elsewhere.
    Think those remaining have enough brainpower fill the increasing gaps? How about the condos and 'urban homesteaders' in once trendy but now 'downmarket' (that means 5 minutes walk from ghetto areas? Think they will be unaffected?

  10. These moron liberals should all be voted out!!! Food stamps only for food??? Good grief….these jerks who want to use it for porn and drugs or whatever the trailer trash want……they are living on a short string with the real American people!!!

  11. Katchaturian says:

    This is unbelievable. Why do we vote congressmen and women that are the real culprits . .or is it the supreme court, that bunch of bunglers that just felel on their arses?

  12. The reason this can happen is because if you've got a good education, you can put absurd concepts in language that makes them seem plausible…even to yourself. The pols and social engineers first deceive and delude themselves, then the masses. When you put their proposals into plain language, their ridiculousness is exposed. But by this time they're so enamored with their own "vision" that they take offense at your making their brilliance appear stupid. You're the enemy. And so it goes…

  13. Don't even dare, to recommend the Government order random drug tests for those on the dole. That's considered an insulting to the tongue pierced , tattooed, pregnant every nine months miscreants, collecting on the taxpayers dime. What collossel nerve the working citizen has, to ask that their hard earned money, is paid to those who truly need it and not to the freeloaders. The takers all think it is money from heaven, or straight from Obama's stash. He has convinced them it's their due. This has got to stop, and the only way to accomplish it is for all American Patriots, to vote this administration out before we are all on the dole, and speaking another language.
