EBT Debit & Decadence
Grab your wallet! If you don’t the state of California will. Those folks on public assistance wanting to spend their free time at the casino or strip club will not be able to withdraw cash on their EBT debit card at a majority of these establishments. The state is asking for voluntary compliance at these businesses to reject cash withdrawals on these EBT debit cards. In the eyes of the state these transactions are not considered essential for the basic survival of an individual or their family.
Perhaps the general public that is not on public assistance thinks this is not a bad idea and in the short term it seems like a good thing. On the other hand the state and those salaried folks in our institutions of government are salivating at the chance to write some legislation to control this wasteful spending. They need a chance to justify their existence and look out for ‘the good of the people’. When this particular piece of legislation is ratified the general public will break out in a big hoorah and say good riddance to those scoundrels spending their hard earned tax dollars on a table dance or a pull on the slot machines. But we have such short memories.
Then we fast forward to the future that will come sooner than we think. Then one day the goody two shoes media, eager to sniff out a story of government waste, will announce one day across our televisions and say, “Looky there! There’s that scoundrel that hasn’t paid his parking ticket and his library fines. He is not on public assistance. Surely he has the means to pay. What can our government do about this?” Then the cronies that infest our government institutions will look back and say, “We stopped those scoundrels on public assistance with their EBT cards. We can just amend that law to include those scoundrels not on public assistance that refuse to pay their parking tickets and library fines. We’ll make them pony up those fines before they decide to fill up their gas tank, buy groceries, or pay their rent. That will teach them a lesson. The banks will be go along we bailed them out.”
This time there won’t be a big hoorah from the general public because they will suddenly be looking at their own debit cards and wondering where the money went.
