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.

Like lingerie.

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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Makes sense and a rare case of honest government. They are going to screw you regardless, so they want you to look good while they are doing it.  :whistle:
