New York Post: Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs — where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers, a Post investigation found.
A database of 200 million Electronic Benefit Transfer records from January 2011 to July 2012, obtained by The Post through a Freedom of Information request, showed welfare recipients using their EBT cards to make dozens of cash withdrawals at ATMs inside Hank’s Saloon in Brooklyn; the Blue Door Video porn shop in the East Village; The Anchor, a sleek SoHo lounge; the Patriot Saloon in TriBeCa; and Drinks Galore, a liquor distributor in The Bronx.
Doesn’t anyone ever wonder how welfare recipients all get enough money for all their tattoos, their iPhones, and their cars? Now I know for a fact (I know some people) that there are a lot of people out there who need help. Lots of single moms. And I know some that sacrifice a lot to keep their kids fed. Good for them. But not everybody is so honest.
I’ve been told by a friend that welfare is nothing more than riot control. And that is EXACTLY what welfare is. Riot control. All these pieces of shit spending their EBT cards up in the Bronx and over in Brooklyn are kept docile by their welfare checks. Without those checks, we’re liable to see a riot, complete with looting, pillaging, and possibly even a few fatalities. And while we definitely need all the pieces of shit working at the welfare office to account better by only letting certain stores accept EBT, and to force welfare recipients to take drug tests, I’ll let a couple bucks here and there go down some whore’s panties. It keeps me safe at night from the riotous deadbeats.
