    I wonder what stores will take that card? Just grocery type stores or can you use it for other things? I need new tires for my 4 wheeler, wonder if the off road place will take one of these? Doesn't matter I guess, I haven't had kids in public school in over a decade.

    DRATS! Foiled Again!
    Here in NJ I just always opted out on the school forms. Ain't no such thing as free lunches. Somebody has to pay.

    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
    and do thou,
    O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan,
    and all the evil spirits,
    who prowl about the world
    seeking the ruin of souls.

    Amen

    I once had a woman approach me as I was walking into the grocery store. She was waiving an EBT card saying "50 cents for a dollar worth of food". Later I saw her checking out with a couple college age guys. Apparently they took her up on it.

    I am obviously from a different era.
    I would refuse to spend one dime of that money, on general principles.

    I started working for pay at age 14. I retired at age 67.
    In all those years I never collected unemployment, welfare, Medicaid, or food stamps.

    I can see that point, and also MM's point of view. Neither one of you are wrong.
