  • Because beer is not a necessity. Foodstamps are for necessities not frivilous items or luxuries. If you want beer then get a job and go buy it. If you don't want the foodstamps then get off them. I am certain there is another family that was waiting in line behind you that needs or wants them more. If your purpose is to abuse the system designed to help those in need then you don't deserve to be on it.

  • Drink water. Problem solved. If you are looking for sympathy, you aren't getting it from me. I work and can't afford booze. Suck it up and get a job that will cover your need for beer.

  • I agree with both Anons. The only problem with common sense is that it isn't very common anymore. Seems this joker lacks that and much more.

  • seriously? Why should you be able to buy sodas with food stamps? It should be used for necessary and healthy foods only. No beer, no crap. Just milk and healthy foods.

  • LOL! People don't drink beer for survival. People eat food & drink water to survive. People drink beer for the enjoyment of it. Being poor & on food stamps is not enjoyable, it's there to help people SURVIVE & eat food. I really hope this question is a joke, if not, this is a very sad question.
