Ah, interesting. So they are mocking "ghetto" culture.

Yep exactly. This actually makes me feel better about things.  :D

Even though I feel better, I'm still angry about it being such a bullshit system...alcohol and tobacco.  ::)

That is pretty outrageous. I'd be upset about fruit and sweets let alone cigs and booze.

Yep my initial outrage was the fast food but that changed once I confirmed that booze and smokes are a-ok.

And the state is broke...I just don't get it.

Do the people that use these cards even vote? I doubt it.

I guess the pols that allow it get votes from the 'community organizers' and their sheeple.

I don't get it either.

The way some of these local machines run I wouldn't doubt it. I'm sure they can be convinced to spend a few hours once every election cycle getting bused to the polls.  ::)

Accounts of voters being bussed are overblown.

Democrats enjoy a decided advantage in registered voters of the middle class.

It is only the very rich and those who are easily led astray that end up favoring the Republicans.

Pen, you seem to have a way of injecting your partisanship into virtually any discussion.
