      You and BLINK are the best. Please remember there are people, like my sister, who is on food stamps. She struggles as a single Mom. She works so very hard. She is very appreciative for the help from e.b.t. I’m very appreciative for this aid!!! When I was a single Mom I too had food stamps. My daughter and I would never have survived with out them.

      The capitalists do understand that the public sector produces jobs and the government produces zero profit margin. That’s why capitalists hate it, no profit in it for them
