    Poor thing. Now she has to use the dirty, old fashioned telephone at the jail to call her court appointed lawyer.

    Cute how they try and make it sound like she’s jailed for trying to abuse the EBT system, which would of course be the RIGHT thing to do. But actually she’s jailed temporarily for running out with the merchandise anyway, which is still a crime (so far) in 2013 even for those of politically correct pigmentation.

    She’ll get her EBT card back and will do it again the next day. This is what socialism is all about.

    How long until the iPad becomes the new Obamaphone?
    Gotta keep the folks supplied with the best technology, right?

    So they can use them to look for jobs, which was supposed to be their original purpose.

    I think I just gave myself a headache.

    How can you accumulate enough money on an EBT card to buy an iPad?

    Either she has WAY too many kids (in which case she should be sterilized) OR the cards have the ability to just keep piling up the unused portions. If you are not using the allotment for food…..then you don’t need food stamps or any other subsidies from us.

    Let’s just stop fooling ourselves. It isn’t food stamps. It isn’t for the needy. The whole program is to steal money from the rest of us work for a damned living and give it to slugs and cheats like this woman to buy their votes.

    When is the revolution anyway??

    i don’t understand walmarts problem with letting her buy the ipads.

    heck, she could have spent her ebt card wad at the local casino gambling and drinking without a problem and have nothing to show for it.

    I didn’t know that iPads were edible.

    @the aardvark — There was a saying in the Soviet Union: If you want meat and milk, go to the radio.

    The socialist gov’t was always proclaiming how much meat and milk was available but the people were evil for eating and drinking it all, which was why the stores were always out. Everyone knew the real story so they made up that quote.

    I suspect the iPad is necessary to view a picture of a Big Mac in case you get hungry.

    I am shocked, shocked I tell you that this worthless thieving welfare cheat just happens to be black. A prime example of what the democrat ghetto slave plantations produce these days. When will black Americans wake up and realize they are back into slavery and can once again be free if only they stop voting for democrats. What a national waste.
