I used to eat at the Thai restaurant on Webster Ave, and go to some of the bars there. I love that part of California.

I lived in Vallejo off of Sacramento Ave.

Working Out And Looking Buff AND an EBT Card? Welfare Fraud!

Another fine Republican sleuth using his powers of deduction and observation:

Perhaps they were texting on their smart phones and Ipads......the sight of a welfare recipient with an Ipad really pisses off some people for some reason.

Wow, he thinks people are that uninformed as to believe that line of crap? Maybe they are.

This one has me scratching my head. Why would he target people who go the gym?

I do believe many young service men and their families sign up for food stamps as they can't make it on a soldiers pay. I'd bet they'd be in pretty good shape.

I go to work and see lazy Republicans sitting on their fat, lazy asses in the a/c and bitching that other people don't do enough to make THEM look good. That's what I'm tired of.

That was true up until about 10-15 years ago. I mean I am sure it still happens.
The sad fact is that I would imagine most junior enlisted people have it better than your average entry level minimum wage worker. The big difference is the housing (on base is rent free) and "free" health care make up for the low wages they get paid.

You would surprised at the BMWs I see at work being driven by Sailors and Marines. It is not because they get paid so much, but some of the single servicemen will squander their whole income on a huge car note, and have no money left over.

Parking lot at work is much the same. Again, it's the perception thing
