A woman who is receiving welfare in the form of food stamps was recently caught on video doing something so absolutely ludicrous that it’s enough to make your jaw go smack against the floor.
Apparently she was buying lobster with her food stamps, and as outrageous as that is, it’s only the tip of the iceberg. It turns out the lobster was for her dog.
Read that again. Slowly. One more time.
This is the real world, folks.
The unnamed woman in the video can be seen visiting a grocery store, where she purchases two lobster tails with her EBT card.
Addressing minimum wage, the woman mocks how long the grocery store employee would have to work in order to pay for the $13.98 lobster tails — nearly 2 hours — and points out that the minimum wage workers then have to pay taxes, which end up going to people who receive handouts like her.
Later at home, the woman brings out her two mobile phones. One, she says, is her own phone, and the other was provided by the government. She then compares her two phones to that which the grocery store employee had — a flip phone that probably gets shut off all of the time because the employee can’t afford to pay her bills.
Toward the end of the video, the woman admits that she receives Social Security Disability Insurance for depression, and feeds her dog the lobster tails.
“This is my Coach keychains,” she says as she pulls a set of keys out of her purse. “These three keychains here, they cost more than those minimum wage people’s f***ing car payment.”
Laughing, she adds, “Well actually, most of them don’t even have f***ing cars, they’re using f***ing public transportation!”
The woman then mentions that she’s on social security for depression.
“I’m on social security for depression,” she says. “Depression is a disability. So if you’re too depressed to work full-time, apply for social security.”
Concluding the video, she says, “So, this is what the minimum wage people will pay for is for me to give lobster to my f***ing dog and make a YouTube video about it mocking them.”
At this point, you have to ask yourself if this lady is being for real. I mean, is she really just a leech mooching off the hard work of millions of Americans and using her welfare to splurge on lobster for her pet?
Or was this simply a statement she was making on the state of the welfare system in our country today?
Regardless of her actual motive, this certainly does illustrate how awful our current system is and why there needs to be dramatic changes made to it if we want to see prosperity make a comeback.
This woman is clearly able-bodied and should be working, but as long as our system supports this kind of dead weight, we’ll never get anywhere.
