Food Stamp Chic

As anyone who listens to Rush Limbaugh knows, the Obama administration wants call Americans both on government cheese and to not eat that cheese because they’re socialist friends think it’s bad for us.

And while I am usually one for extending government aid for those in need, there seems to be some serious issues going on right now in our nation with food stamps. Sure, way to many Americans are on government food assistance, but a story also emerged this week about Leroy Fick, a 59-year-old man from Michigan who after winning a $2 million lottery prize is still on food stamps.

You know who I blame this on? Hipsters. Sure, chances are that Mr. Fick doesn’t read articles from New York newspapers about how hip food stamps are, but throughout the country young liberal arts college majors who have yet to get access to that Trust Fund goodness are using food stamps pretty much because they think it’s fun.

Just to review then, if you are worth $2 million you really shouldn’t be on food stamps: you should do what other millionaires do and shun regular welfare in favor of corporate welfare.
