You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Okay, but let’s talk for a second about how that one lady called turkey “big chicken”
You can’t even buy all food with food stamps. You just… you flat-out can’t buy “food that will be eaten in the store/any food sold for on-premises consumption” or any “hot foods” with food stamps—meaning you can’t buy anything hot, you can’t buy anything that gets blended together, you can’t buy anything “pre-prepared,” in most cases you can’t use your EBT card at restaurants. You literally CANNOT purchase a milkshake with food stamps, because it’s considered “sold for on-premises consumption” (which was ridiculous at the place I worked, because the customer had to mix their own milkshake themself with a little machine we provided them, and several people got upset—rightfully so, I think—that it wasn’t covered under food stamps, because they often only found out at the register after already mixing it, often as a treat for their kids). You literally can’t walk into a gas station, grab one of those hot dogs off their grills/out of the little heated food area, and buy it with food stamps, because it’s hot.
And when I say “can’t,” I don’t mean “if the cashier notices you trying and cares enough to stop you, they’ll refuse to do it for you.” I mean “it is actually impossible to do this.” I’m not even sure these people who disseminate false information about food stamps have paid any attention at all when buying things at the store, because what happens is: We scan in the customer’s items, into our computer. The computer has specific codes for the items and rules for what it will let you pay for things with. We scan the customer’s EBT card, and it tells us exactly how much of that price total can be paid for via EBT, and it will not include anything that isn’t food, and it will not include anything considered “pre-prepared” food. It does this automatically AND THERE IS NO OVERRIDE FOR IT. If our machines say that you can’t use the EBT card to pay for something, there is literally nothing we can do to change that, even if we WANTED to.
So no. You can’t buy iPads or cigarettes with food stamps. You can’t withdraw money from casinos or anywhere else with food stamps. You can’t buy dog food with food stamps; sometimes you can’t even buy people food with food stamps. I’m not even sure if you can buy “the big chicken legs” at Disney with food stamps; remember, you can’t buy “any food sold for on-premises consumption” OR any hot foods, and that’s both.
Literally the only thing these fearmongers listed that you can actually purchase with food stamps even if you are in goddamn cahoots with the evil liberal cashier or store manager is soda, and the judgement against people buying that with food stamps is classist fuckwittery at its finest.
So, as always, Fox News is actually flat-out lying, and hateful conservatives both don’t know what they’re talking about and don’t give a fuck about people going through shit that they will never have to go through themselves, and that they in fact don’t have even the tiniest clue about (not even via five seconds’ research; a list of things that can’t be purchased with food stamps is on the Food and Nutrition Services website) but still think they should spout off about to their TV audience anyway.
Oh for God’s sake, these assholes.
I’ve been on food stamps twice, and I assure you, I couldn’t buy a goddamn iPad - and I sure as fuck couldn’t afford admission to Disney.
But the most important to me, is like, obviously they don’t grant it to people who have money or possessions valued at too much they could sell, they don’t make it fucking easy. And like, you have been evaluated to not have money, so..how the fuck are you supposed to buy toilet paper??? Oh I’m soeey I guess you don’t neeeed that, just rub your ass on the dirt to clean it. Or every time you have to go you gotta walk somewhere with free public bathrooms, or just ya know not wipe your ass. Mean while cuz you smell like shit cuz you couldn’t wipe properly how are you supposed to get a job to get yourself elevated?
And even if you could hide that, as a woman, you get niagra falls of demon blood flooding your loins which you can’t buy pads for, you don’t even get toilet paper to fucking fake it. So besides the smell now you gotta look like you murdered someone with your vagina and forgot to clean up the evidence too because its coming through your pants.
And I’d like to add too, people talk about food stamps like its a fucking platimum credit card and you can just buy shit tons of things. I get 100$ a month. That lasts like maybe 2 weeks worth of food and god forbid you have a food allergy like me, there is no help for that you just have to either eat shit you’re allergic to or not eat.
Would you mind providing more info on what you mean by themed? Like a group photo op for everyone who’s a fan of Hannibal, or a group of celebs from the show?
No, more like they had a dinner table set up like Hannibal would have done with skulls and bones and fruit and goblets etc.
I don’t really know how other shows would do one…it just worked really well for Hannibal.
Kinda like what you do with the star wars company peeps with the lil sets.

Ok..so..officially I think my internet has been cut off and its been 3 days of me using data,and I only have the phone cuz the computers died.. rawr its time to go to the library, cuz I’ve used like 3 gigs in 3 days..not good
But in the meantime, while I try not to use data here, I have a bunch of fics popping into my head. Probably the one useful thing about extra hormones with no outlet.
But yeah if anyone who has read my stuff and has any suggestions they would like to see feel free to tell me.
So far I have:
Hiddles/reader - more of a cute one involving rain and unexpectedly falling in front of hiddles
Reedus/reader 3 different ones. Two fan ones..one coworker extra on set.
Lydia/Parrish - Lydia trying to figure out what Parrish is.
Lydia/Peter - not a continuation of the one I wrote before but same result lol just more running and threats of murder..
Dean/Cas - dirty dirty things with pie happen….
I don’t wanna give too much away…so if you wanna know more, or have pairing suggestions message me. ^_^
