    Curious, does unopened soda and wrapped candy help with transmission too. :)

    she started out good, but then big money moved her to the "eat less, move more"

    big money does not want people knowing too many processed carbs are bad for your health

    excessive carbs and excessive heavily processed seed oils are two of the top contributors to bad health

    I have no issue with providing food subsidies where needed. I have a big problem with food giants and pharm companies growing richer by causing illness.

    And?

    My pleasure. I have been approached on several occasions. The guy with the SNAP/EBT card stands out front. He asks me if I am buying groceries and offers to buy them for me. He uses his card to buy $50. in groceries for $20. cash he can use to buy non covered items, like beer, cigs, or crack!

    Tis is not a fraud; it's a practice accepted and practiced by habitually unemployed, scammers and other Democrats.

    It is the consumption of simple carbohydrates that is responsible for physiological processes like adipose deposition, naive T cell depletion, and blood glucose variability (to name a few) that lead to increased likelihood of infection and transmission.

    So yes, wrapped and unopened soda helps keep transmission rates lower than if they were opened and consumed.

    Because there's only two options- massively-bloated free food entitles from the government, or starvation.

    Classic leftist thinking- the only alternative to the government giving us everything, is nothing at all.

    No, it's not.

    Self sufficiency and personal responsibility is us guys.

    Helplessness and government dependency is you guys.

    No, we shouldn't just let them starve. We should care enough about them to REMOVE them from the care of people who are receiving plenty of taxpayer funds to cover their meals yet still not providing them with adequate care and nutrition.

    i agree in principle, but many people on food stamps (or whatever cards ) have limited food storage and preparation facilities. some are homeless or live on their cars (a hot engine can be used for limited cooking and warming of food. ). some are working multiple jobs with long commutes and are exhausted by the time they get home.

    many, if not most, have jobs.

    wal mart and many fast food joints post information and assist their employees who need food stamps, medicaid etc.

    without welfare, american business would be forced to pay a living wage.

    Many years ago, there was another popular scam - people would buy 5-gallon jars of drinking water with food stamps, go outside, empty the jars into the drains and return empty jars for deposit money.

    It was widely publicized in a day. Not very different from what today's government handout recipients are doing.
