This is annoying.

In line at HEB and the 30 something mother in front of me has the latest I-phone, expensive yoga pants, MK purse. Kids are well dressed with expensive shoes. She buys sugary cereals, Cokes and other sugary drinks and not the cheapest frozen foods.

Then she pays with a Lone Star card. 

OLDBIKER --- 5 years ago -

Yes it is, when I was young my wife and I both worked and struggled to make ends meet, didn't have expensive any thing ,but my kids were clean and dressed and fed ,but we always made too much money for any kind of assistance/it would have been nice to have. I am now proud that I never needed any assistance from the government,there is clearly something wrong with that woman having all the extras and paying with lone star card. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

No idea what this specifics are in her case but a lot of people eat sugary crappy cereal and cokes daily. Typical American diet for many.
It appears they are doing well but on gov't assistance. Our system has a lot of "issues" and nothing ever changes...no one takes the initiative to make it better. 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

clearly something wrong with that woman having all the extras and paying with lone star card.

I'm no rich man, have no luxuries and I smart shop with coupons. But I'm proud of the fact that I never used any public assistance. 

andreweggplant --- 5 years ago -

That's why she can wear expensive clothes and carry a MK bag... it's all about the priorities. Most people would make housing and food the priority... 

Rubicon --- 5 years ago -

It's a sad world we live in. 

Texashley30 --- 5 years ago -

I'm on my way to HEB to get some sweet tea. I really want those beautiful lavender roses they have in their garden center. Next paycheck. 

jackass --- 5 years ago -

I suppose someone talked to her and got all the details of her life... 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

If they required people on food stamps to only buy certain foods, I'm sure many would find they didn't need them. I've told my husband I could probably get us through a week on food stamps, but we'd be sick of rice, beans and oatmeal. Buying food out of the freezer section might be easy, but it won't go very far. 

PokerFace --- 5 years ago -

Lol-how do you know what she paid for her yoga pants? I've sold MK, Tory Burch, Coach purses, LuluLemon gear, and all kinds of brand name items at my yearly garage sale for dirt cheap.

Why you are jumping to conclusions about someone else's life? It speaks to your own quality of life that it bothers you so much. 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

I guess I failed to mention the newer model SUV in the parking lot.

I'm very happy with my life. Although relatively low middle class (I didn't even graduate high school) I'm very proud that I have never ask for or received any government help. Although I have very meager possessions, I got them all on my own.

This was no garage sale purse, shoes, Iphone or SUV. Maybe get rid of the SUV and Iphone use the proceeds to buy groceries instead of relying on other peoples money. 

Butterbean --- 5 years ago -

I've heard/seen this story in many cities/states/towns across the US. Unless you can post pics and say that you called/informed the proper authorities, I call BS. 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

I call BS.

Why would anyone care what you call? 

Butterbean --- 5 years ago -

You left out the Rolex and changed the Cadillac to SUV.

Alternative facts.

TONS OF POS SCUMBAGS game the system




Some of them just biitch about it... 

Dorothy Parker --- 5 years ago -

So not only are you paying attention to how the person is paying for their groceries, you follow the out into the parking lot to see what they're driving??

Creeper much? 

SleightOfHand --- 5 years ago -

Child support that is automatically taken from the father's paycheck is placed on a Lone Star card, it isn't always food stamps 

Leila --- 5 years ago -

I never understand how people notice what someone is paying with. At HEB the card machine is (probably purposefully) a good distance away from where the next person stands to start loading their groceries. IMO You would really have to be in their personal space to see what kind of card they were swiping or putting into the chip slot. . 

Leila --- 5 years ago -

Child support that is automatically taken from the father's paycheck is placed on a Lone Star card, it isn't always food stamps?

I did not know that. Thank you for that info. Sometimes we just make assumptions without facts. 

SleightOfHand --- 5 years ago -

Sometimes? 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

Child support that is automatically taken from the father's paycheck is placed on a Lone Star card,

Not true 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

I go to HEB almost every day. You know what they are paying with, since they don't care who knows. I pay taxes, so I do think it is my business. I've told before about how I was behind two women, dressed really nice, with their huge designer purses. They each had a basket and each paid with their lone star card. When I walked out the door, a man was loading their groceries in the back of an expensive car, can't remember now what it was. He was parked in handicapped parking. It just really ticked me off. Say I'm nosey, I don't care, I'm sick of paying for freeloaders. 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

I may not make ends meet very well, but my self respect is in tact because
I've never taken government assistance. 

SleightOfHand --- 5 years ago -

"Child support that is automatically taken from the father's paycheck is placed on a Lone Star card,

Not true "

Yes it is. I know several ladies who get their child support placed on a Lonestar card. They would not qualify for food stamps. 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

I know more than one who don't. Its not universally true. 

SleightOfHand --- 5 years ago -

" Its not universally true. "

So it is possible that she isn't a leach. I'm not saying that it is impossible that she is a leach, lord knows when I moonlighted at the Walmart off West Rd and 45, you knew when the foodstamps were transferred because all hell broke lose in that store. 

Hiro Protagonist --- 5 years ago -

1) For all you know those things were gifts

2) People that have foster children are given lone star cards to pay for their food.

3) Mind your own business, and worry about yourself. 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

Mind your own business, and worry about yourself.

Its my money. It is my business. 

Leila --- 5 years ago -

I go to HEB almost every day. You know what they are paying with, since they don't care who knows.

Well I am in HEB way too often myself and I can honestly say I have never looked or noticed what kind of card anyone is using. They all look like credit cards to me.

Why on earth would you be checking out someone's card? That would make me so uncomfortable in this day and age of identity theft if I saw someone checking out my debit card. 

Hiro Protagonist --- 5 years ago -

Its my money. It is my business.?


And what do you think more of your money goes to? Welfare spending, or military and a million other things? Actual spending on the non-working poor amounts to less than 6 % of the budget.

Why do people get so worked up on so little of the budget being spent to help people out? 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

Why do people get so worked up on so little of the budget being spent to help people out?

Because its my money being wasted. Why do liberals feel so free to spend other peoples money? 

Behold the pale horse --- 5 years ago -

Its sort of hard to miss when they display it openly in bejeweled fingers. 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

I don't mind helping someone. Everyone at sometime has run into situations that are beyond their control. I do have a problem with people who consider it a way of life. Do you really shop HEB, because surely you know you are right on top of each other checking out. I can also usually tell when the person in front of me is going to pull out a wad of cash. 

Hiro Protagonist --- 5 years ago -

Because its my money being wasted.


So you're fine with billions being irresponsibly spent in other areas, but money spent to help people is too much to take. 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

I don't like any of our money wasted, but I would like everyone to contribute. How many years do you suggest is enough before they stand on their own to two feet? I'm for the hand up, not hand out, at least for not too long. 

SleightOfHand --- 5 years ago -

Food stamps should be temporary, unless under certain circumstances 

Texashley30 --- 5 years ago -

I don't care what anybody wears, drives, etc. It's all vanity. None of it goes to heaven with you. 

jackass --- 5 years ago -

I'm calling BS on the whole thing...this is just pot stirring 101. 

sheddy --- 5 years ago -

Gold jewelry, high dollar sneakers, nails and hair done or.......flip flops and pajama bottoms! If they are taking money out of YOUR pocket, shouldn't you care about how long they take it. Please send in my share if you don't mind giving lazy people money to waste.
