Shame on you

A horrible woman who owns a bakery in Massachusetts is refusing to sell her cakes and pies to people on food stamps.  She says that people on food stamps are supposed to be buying healthy nutritious food with that meager government assistance they're getting and they should not be spending it on her junk food.

So if you're poor and on food stamps, then no sugar, flour, egg, and cocoa powder for you.  No dessert for you poor lazy bastards.  Stop dreaming of those cakes and pies and go get a fucking job.  How dare you abuse the precious benefits that the taxpayers have given to you?  You people demand cake to go with the steak and lobster you're pounding down.  God damn you, you poor wretches, your gall astounds me.  You demand cakes, pies, pastry, and more while there are defense related industries that could use the money they gave you to blow on sugary treats.  An Israeli citizen isn't getting the best possible health care because you poor fuckers want a little treat before you run off and find other government teats to suck dry.  Mitt Romney needs another tax break, you lazy bastards don't need another cupcake.  Be ashamed you poor undeserving bastards, be very ashamed.

And while you're at it, if you have a flat screen TV, a stove, and fridge, and microwave, leather athletic shoes, a stereo, or anything else of value, give it to someone who really deserves it, like an American who invests in or works on Wall Street.  Those bankers work hard to make more money and what do you poor people do?  You sit around with your dick in one hand, a cup cake in the other, and you reach for more benefits that you don't deserve.

If you really think like that then fuck you.  If you begrudge the poor any food whatsoever, then fuck you.  If you think people are poor because they are lazy and don't want to work, then fuck you.  If you think poor people are the ones who are ruining our country, then fuck you.  Fuck you in the ass with no lube, you heartless prick.  People who shame the poor are lower than low, they are disgusting pig fucking heartless assholes. 

I grew up poor, I know what it's like to live in food stamps.  For the first ten years of my life I was on food stamps.  I know what it's like to experience food anxiety, to go to bed hungry worrying if the little food you have will last you until the next batch of food stamps come in and let me tell you, no eight year old kid should have to worry about that.  But I fucking did.  I worried about it a lot when I was little.  I worried that my family wouldn't have enough, that my mom would feel bad because she couldn't provide for her kids.  But the really sad thing about that is there are kids today nearly 50 years later who still  have to worry about stuff like that.  We can fight a never ending war on an amorphous idea yet we can't give poor people basic food stuffs.  Corporate profits are gushing like an oil spill in Nigeria and yet people from major corporations shame the poor for asking for something to eat.  Mitt Romney can get a tax break for his horse but poor people can't buy a bit of cake with the pitiful handout they get.

Our country is ass backwards and once the whole economic system collapses and the greedy pigs who are running it have to stick their hand out and ask for food stamps, then maybe we'll start to set things right.

Dickens said this very well. Still needs to be said.

"Oh God! to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust!"

As for healthy, nutritious food, it would be nice to get some, but if you have no money, can't get out to where it's sold, the packeted crap at the dollar store is all there is. And that makes me angry, too.

I imagine some of her non-food stamp customers might be looking for another place to spend their money right about now.

Soon they are going to make it law in MA that all Farmers Market vendors honor EBT cards if they want to participate, then this teabagger will be SOL. I believe this ordinance is already in place in Boston (as my local markets all accept them)

I'm with you on the "Fuck You!" Does she have any idea how poor you have to be to qualify? Doubtful. Yeah, Mittens can get a $77,000 tax break for his prancing horse, but the poor family down the street can't buy a birthday cake cuz they don't DESERVE it? Fuck her and the horse she rode in on.

I thought we were supposed to let them eat cake?
