During an hour-long deep dive into the growing use of food stamps in America, Fox News highlighted “the new face of food stamps.” That new face is a pina colada-sipping, lobster-loving lothario named Jason Greenslate. Greenslate, a 29-year-old La Jolla California surfer and musician who sings that he does not want a “motherfucking job” and has “fuck no” guilt about living on $200 of what he calls “free money ” — or what the government called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Benefits — while he avoids a job to hang out on the beach, sing and chase women.
"Think about an economy where people could be an artist...and not have to worry about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance. "Nancy Pelosi. Warms the heart to know that we are supporting artists like Jason. Good job of raising your son momma Greenslate.
But, but, he´s just following his public school indoctrination of ´doing anything that feels good´ and Peelousy´s statement that everyone should be free to live the lifestyle that they want and taxpayers should pay for it.
´´life in terms of a picnic´´. But he gets the lobster and we get the ants and yellowjackets. Odder still, consider also that he would be (if motivated enough) a perfect fit with the Occupy crowd. Now THAT makes me mad. Madder than if he were a single mom with 3 kids...
Defiant Lobster company has culls at $3.99 per pound ~ again!
The price has been low due to abundance of lobster.
Now hamburger, that´s different. We have obtained some recently for under $3.00 a pound ~ haven´t seen that since "W" BTW
A surfer tells you anything that´s something you might not want to believe. The dude sounds like he´s suffering from one degree or the other of SCHIZOPHRENIA, and he´s buying cheap meat ~ high energy cheap meat, but currently it´s far from being a gourmet only specialty.
We are going to an all you can eat crawdad festival this coming Friday. $10 a head ~ we are all able to eat $50 worth of these critters, so hope they got enough of them.
He is unemployed by choice...and yes, if he were to apply at your business, would you hire him? Almost certainly not; his work ethic is horrible.
But this is what the public school culture of ´boosting self-esteem´ has brought us - a generation where many have terrific self-esteem. They think very highly of themselves, far higher than the rest of us think of them.
Our schools also teach relativism, that one person´s ideas are as good as another. So when these kids do get a job, they think their ideas are just as good as the ideas of the boss. And then they are so surprised when they get fired for arguing with the boss or refusing to do things his way.
And our education system is clueless about the damage they cause.
The real story here isn´t this parasite, it´s why hard-working Americans continue to accept being treated like tax cows hooked up to tax milking machines by Obama and the Democrats. Udderly incomprehensible.
This guy isn´t even a surfer as much as he is a totally arrogant bum. Raised in LaJolla, he has decided he is too good to work. The small blurb Bret Baier featured as a teaser for his longer special report was sickening.
What kind of parents would raise a disgusting piece of excrement like Jason?
I´ve been behind people using EBT cards in supermarket and can never understand (I´m going to ask some day) why the store clerk asks the Electronic Bank Transfer customer, "Cash Back?"
I don´t know anyone who ever gets asked if they want cash back when they use they credit card to pay for their food. I don´t understand it. I thought you just use those EBT cards to get food. What bank do these EBTers use that they can get cash back when they never deposit any money into the EBT bank!!! I wonder when that policy started.
This guy is living "reality"...on our dime. He´s not complaining, is he? We need the slap upside the head, not him. Who´s the chump in this deal? Who´s complaining they can´t afford to retire to the beach?
I was in line at a grocery store that is next to a Home Depot where all the "day workers" hang out. The man in front of me had a container of hot ribs in his hand; he was eating them as he stood in line. When he swiped his card, it did not read, and he continued to eat one rib after the other. Finally, the clerk asked to see his card, and since it had B-B-Que sauce on it, he actually licked the card and tried to hand it to the clerk. The clerk then announced that it was an EBT card, and he could not buy hot food with this card. After a lot of fuss, he just left the mostly eaten ribs container on the counter, as it appeared he could not speak English, and he had no money. When I went out to load my groceries into my trunk, he was sitting on the curb behind my car talking on his phone (0bama phone), and he was speaking in English.
#22, I get asked all the time when I use my debit card if I want cash back. Helpful hint: Cash back at the grocery store saves you the fee charged at the bank when using your ATM to withdraw money. Most banks charge you after if you use the ATM more than 5-6 times a month.
In my state you can not use an EBT card for hot food so I hope he is eating lobster salad or just plain cold lobster s he can use the card. I have worked for years for a very large grocery chain and when a cashier rang up any item that been heated the register would require that item must be paid for at the time of totaling the order. I would assume this is the same every where.
That goofy parasite must be getting money from somewhere, as he can´t live on a 200 dollar SNAP account. He has to live somewhere,does he own his home, does he rent it? Where is the money coming from to pay the usual living expenses? Who paid for his surfboard? That´s not covered by SNAP.
Brett Baier should have dug a little deeper and if he had done so, we would be more outraged than we were, while watching the show
To be "fair and balanced" will there also be a special on a 3rd generation welfare mother of the black race? Yes, there are more whites on SNAP, but then the % of whites is far greater than the 12% that make up the black community. Some sell their cards for pennies on the dollar to get their next high..kids can go hungry, all that matters is that next fix. Unless they are disabled, SNAP should be for those 65 and over.
If Nasty Piglosi had another son, he would sound just like this jerk. How unfortunate that he did not have a mamma who was smart enough to explain to him that nothing in life is "free". Someone had to pay for it, or a lot of someones who are working for a paycheck, unlike this loser.
#25 - I do understand that you can get cash back on your debit card because it´s your own money, but I heard on the radio (and they never lie) that people get cash back on their EBT cards (maybe only in compassionate blue states). It wouldn´t surprise me, though, because I believe U.S. food stamps are advertised in Mexico. The next time I see it happening, I am going to ask the clerk why that should be happening.
There´s some or many gnomes somewhere who never stopped figuring out ways to tank our economy.
WASHINGTON -- An American who vanished nearly seven years ago in Iran was working for the CIA on an unapproved intelligence-gathering mission that, when it came to light inside the government, produced one of the most serious scandals in the recent history of the CIA - but all in secret, an Associated Press investigation found. The CIA paid Robert Levinson´s family $2.5 million to head off a revealing lawsuit. Three veteran analysts were forced out of the agency and seven others were disciplined. The U.S. publicly has described Levinson as a private citizen.
The powerful uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been executed as a "traitor for all ages," the official news agency reported. Jang Song Thaek faced a special military tribunal Thursday and was convicted of "anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional acts" in a bid to overthrow the the communist country´s leadership, KCNA reported Friday in Pyongyang. The state news agency did not say when or how Jang was killed. North Korean media reported Monday that Jang had been purged for crimes that included faction-building, corruption, drug use and womanizing. He was considered the country´s most powerful figure after his nephew. State TV aired
Not only could you "shoot your eye out, kid," you might also go to jail for owning that BB gun in certain states. New Jersey and other jurisdictions make little or no distinction between Daisy´s classic Red Ryder BB gun immortalized in the film "A Christmas Story," and real guns. They must be registered and are subject to the same laws as any firearms. “In all honesty, kids who are charged are looking at mandatory jail time,” said New Jersey attorney William Proetta, adding that under the state’s Graves Act, a conviction could lead to prison time. “The only defense is to
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. The vast majority came from 14 states running their own insurance exchanges, while 137,000 came by way of HealthCare.gov, the much-faulted federal Web site that handles enrollment for the remaining states. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov. Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law. But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage -- but not for a lack of effort. “We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a
Remember when Bill Clinton was twice elected President as a "New Democrat" who wanted to get along with people in the private economy? Nowadays even writing in favor of ideas that Mr. Clinton supported can get you branded a heretic and banished from impolite liberal society. Witness the political tempest that blew up in response to the December 3 op-ed we published by Democrats Jon Cowan and Jim Kessler of the Third Way think tank. The former aides to Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer, respectively, would be considered liberals in most places outside of the Harvard faculty lounge. But the campus
Maybe he went into sugar shock over a Danish pastry. The president of the United States, leader of the free world, standard-bearer for everything upright, good and wholesome about the nation he leads, lost his morality, his dignity and his mind, using the solemn occasion of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service Tuesday to act like a hormone-ravaged frat boy on a road trip to a strip bar. In front of 91 world leaders, the mourning nation of South Africa and Obama’s clearly furious wife, Michelle, the president flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child and made a damn fool of himself at first
Washington -- A handful of Republican Party officials is quietly advancing a new batch of rules aimed at streamlining a chaotic presidential nominating process that many party insiders viewed as damaging to the their campaign for the White House in 2012, multiple GOP sources told CNN. In a series of closed-door meetings since August, handpicked members of the Republican National Committee have been meeting with party Chairman Reince Priebus in Washington to hash out details of a sweeping plan to condense the nominating calendar, severely punish primary and caucus states that upend the agreed-upon voting order and potentially move the party´s
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
If you go down on the ice today you´re sure of a big surprise - a rare glimpse of 20 polar bears gorging on a bloody midnight feast. These photographs show a rare cluster of males, females and cubs all dining out on the remains of a whale carcass. They spent a night and a day stripping every last morsel from the mammoth sea creature. Usually Polar bears are solitary and would never tolerate being so close to each other. But with food in plentiful supply and bellies dragging on the floor they seem too lethargic to fight.Wildlife photographer Michal
