Outrage: Nightclub Offers Discount To Food Stamps Recipients

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Alabama nightclub manager says he`s working on a name-change for a `Food Stamp Friday` event offering a price break for patrons on government assistance.

The `Food Stamp Friday` promotion raised criticism from some who said offering $5 admission to patrons who show their `food stamp card` glamorizes the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program."

Anybody who receives food stamps shouldn`t have any discretionary income to attend a rap concert at a club. I urge all hardworking folks in Montgomery to boycott the "Rose Supper Club."

Instead of getting a discount anyone who flashes a food stamp card should get a free can of pinto beans and a kick in the butt.

These losers probably walk up to the club like they are big players and flash their food stamp card as if it were an American Express Platinum Card.

I will channel the Rev. Pat Robertson and pray that a hurricane will wipe the "Rose Supper Club" off the face of the Earth.
