No, You Don’t Need Government Welfare for a Tattoo

Kansas lawmakers are trying to ban using government welfare for tattoos, movies, cruise ships, and more. I was upset with proposed Missouri restrictions on food stamps because they seemed designed to turn recipients away from healthy options like seafood. The list of proposed restrictions on the use of government welfare money seems much more reasonable. According to the Christian Science Monitor, “No movies, concerts, or tattoos: Kansas bill would limit use of welfare funds.” The bill Read more […]

Colorado Introduces State Drugging of the Poor without Even Trying

The manager put up a sign saying the EBT system was not in use.” Comments from non-EBT shoppers are a little Read more […]

Welfare Recipients Help Obama Break Fundraising Records
