Hey baby, you take EBT?

I don't even know what EBT stands for, but I know it's a government-issued debit card intended to pay for food and living expenses.  You need to be in poverty (on paper) to get one of these.

Apparently many of the folks who have this card have been abusing it by using it at liquor stores, casinos, and strip clubs! 

I just heard on the local news that my state is now banning that.  People in poverty can't afford strippers anyway.  They have no business being in the strip club, and I don't blame the government for trying to keep their mooches out.  

What worries me is that they had to put strip clubs on the banned list for a reason.  That reason can only be because people were using their EBT cards at strip clubs!  I'm assuming to pay for cover charge and drinks because I don't see anyone tipping or buying lap dances with them.

I'm gonna have to agree with the government.  I wouldn't want my mooches to piss away my money gambling, buying booze and tipping strippers.  Fuck no.
