Free Lingerie, Compliments of Taxpayers
Want to doll up your girl in some hot new lingerie? Like the song says, it’s free — just swipe your EBT:
A south Louisiana lingerie store has posted on its front door to indicate it accepts most credit cards, including the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.
Kiss My Lingerie, in Gonzales, sells adult specialty items. The store moved into the Magnolia Shopping Center on South Burnside Avenue a few years ago. However, accepting the EBT payment is something that happened eight months ago, according to the owner. The owner went on to say the store accepts every form of payment and does not discriminate against customers.
You aren’t in favor of discrimination, are you? Then you won’t have a problem paying for other people’s lingerie.
A woman who works near the store and asked not to be identified said in the last few weeks, she’s noticed more people going inside the adult shop. She added that’s when she saw the message on the front door of the store that the EBT card is listed as an acceptable form of payment.
The increased business means Nancy Pelosi is right: paying people not to work spurs the economy. Just think how rich we will all be when the government forces everybody else to pay for everything. It’s just around the corner; we are almost there…
“We were told anything could be purchased there, with the food stamp card,” [the disgruntled woman] said. “No child I know eats edible underwear.”
A spokesperson for the Department of Children and Family Services said the EBT card, or the Louisiana Purchase card, is not just for food stamps. There are also cash benefits available for other family needs.
At least you aren’t paying for it unless you live in Louisiana. No wait, you are:
[ S]tate officials stated there’s no violation of the law with the store accepting the card for lingerie and other adult items. They added because the cash benefits are part of a federal program, Louisiana does not dictate how families spend the money of those cards…
As Obama famously proclaimed, when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody. Except those who end up paying for it — which in the long run will be everybody.http://moonbattery.com/?p=43431
