Raleigh tattoo parlor accepts food stamps as payment - WNCN: News, Weather for Raleigh. Durham, FayettevillePolice: Raleigh tattoo parlor accepted food stamps as payment
RALEIGH, N.C. - A Raleigh tattoo parlor is accused of taking hundreds of dollars in welfare benefits for tattoos, Raleigh Police say.
Warrants show Raleigh police learned in early 2013 that Ink Addiction Tattooz at 2012-B Poole Road was accepting Electronic Benefit Transfer cards as payment for tattoo work.
Court documents show an informant purchased tattoo work from owner Clifford Craig Tittle using two EBT cards. The informant also sold Tittle two more EBT cards.
Through further investigation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture found four instances of tattoo work being paid for using EBT cards.
On Sept. 4, two individuals used EBT cards and cash for work from Ink Addiction Tattooz. The amount charged to EBT cards was $421 and 417.61, court documents show.

What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I cant say what I think on a public board.
When exactly are Americans going to stand up to their corrupt government???
Those who may have complaints are bought off by perks like this. Sadly, few people see what is actually going on here, and many of those who do are the ones perpetrating it.

Wait until they come out with the tattoo of the EBT card.
That's when we need to worry.

I miss the days when I used to find things surprising.
If they really want to bust a lot of people for buying/selling food stamps, post up at a grocery store or Wal-Mart for the day. The people doing it make little to no effort to hide what they're doing. I see it going on just about every time I go grocery shopping. One person picks out what they want, the other pays using their EBT card then as they're walking out the door, cash is exchanged. When I worked at a hotel on the beach some years ago, co-workers and their friends would regularly advertise selling theirs for .50 on the dollar (sometimes a bit less).

MI actually had to make a law that you couldn't use a state welfare card to withdraw cash from ATM's in strip clubs.
Wait, you can withdraw CASH with your welfare card???!!!

We need to bring back the tar and feathers. And yes, I fully realize just how NASTY and HORRIFIC that actually was. It's about time we oust the moochers and looters by force if necessary.

It looks like they were caught and charged for misuse of food stamps. What is the problem then?
"The "Obamaphone" program is not funded by the government its part of the "Universal Service Fund", & it’s hardly new.
It was started under The Telecommunications Act of 1934,
In 1985 Ronald Reagan added discounts for the poor.
In 2005 George Bush added cell phones to the service.
LINKSome consumers may notice a “Universal Service” line item on their telephone bills. This line item appears when a company chooses to recover its USF contributions directly from its customers by billing them this charge. The FCC does not require this charge to be passed on to customers. Each company makes an individual business decision about whether and how to assess charges to recover its Universal Service costs.
How do I know this?
I had to use the service while my wife of 29 years was dying of brain cancer,
and I was her sole caregiver.
During the same period of time I fought for, and received, a
HAMP mortgage reduction.
Thanks to these 2 programs I am still in my home, doing very well, and I'm on my feet again.
It was the only time in my life I got any kind of "ROI" from the government.

Any chance that they are getting a tattoo of of some kind of scarlet letter? A 'D' for Deadbeat perhaps?
