Food Stamps

Postby The Parkus Empire » Wed Jul 11, 2018 2:58 pm

Opinions and thoughts on food stamps?

I think we should have "In God We Trust" printed on American food stamps (EBT cards today). We have it on our currency, so it makes sense. Also it would impart a "count your blessings" feeling to those on the dole. And it might make conservatives less hostile to food stamps. Furthermore the card should feature the American flag instead of the current tacky design, lend some patriotic dignity to the whole affair.

If Trump did all this, we might even start calling them "Trump Cards". :p

Can we not try to make everything religious? Anyway, count your blessings? Is the US government god? Trump isn't god, and I refuse to pray to Sarah Huckabee Sanders ugly face. And anyway, why do we need it on our currency?

How about a nice compromise? We change the words on our currency and food stamps to "Render under Caesar what is Caesar's" =^)

Since I think we should remove in god we trust from the money and put our actual moto e pluribus unum on it...yeah my position should be pretty obvious.

The whole "In God We Trust" thing is so outdated now that the Cold War is over. They introduced it as a way to differentiate the west from the communists, but nowadays it's just ridiculous to see a first world country whose government makes decisions based on directions from their politicians' imaginary friend.

Wait, you mean we're a democracy and expected to voice opinion and dissent on political issues such as taxes? You mean *we* are Caesar and so can comment on taxes? That's crazy!
