Louisiana Lingerie Shop Accepts EBT Cards
"A Louisiana lingerie store does not discriminate against its customers and it also does not judge how they want to pay for their purchases -- even if they are made with Electronic Benefits Transfer cards.
The sign on the front of Kiss My Lingerie in Gonzales indicates that it accepts EBT card payments, a practice that began about eight months ago."
According to a spokesperson for the Louisiana Dept. of Children and Family Services the EBT cards (Foodstamps) can be used to make cash purchases of family needs besides food products. Although the card can`t be used to purchase, alcohol, tobacco or lottery tickets.
Anybody who can afford to buy expensive lingerie doesn`t need any food stamps. This is a flagrant abuse of the food stamps program.
Some lingerie shops sell edible panties, but I doubt that a dad will buy edible panties so that he child can eat them with his breakfast cereal.
Well at least we can take comfort in the fact that food stamp recipients aren`t wearing dirty granny panties, but are sporting expensive thongs.
I always thought food stamps couldn`t be used to purchase non-food items, but what the hell do I know, I`m just a humble blogger.
The taxpayers of Louisiana should boycott the "Kiss My Lingerie" shop!
