Jeff Bezos wants food stamps

Jeff Bezos, the second-richest man in the history of the world, wants food stamps.



The mega-millionaire who owns the Washington Post and founded Amazon is now marketing directly to food stamp recipients to make him richer.

Well, a limo lib does what a limo lib does to capitalize on socialism.

From NBC:
People who receive government assistance are now eligible for a discount on Amazon Prime, the online retailer announced Tuesday. 
Customers who have a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer card qualify for the discounted $5.99 monthly membership, half the regular price, for one year. It includes free two-day shipping on more than 50 million eligible Amazon items and same-day delivery options as well as unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, photo storage and subscription savings features. 
EBT cards are the updated version of food stamps. They are much more susceptible to fraud.

I guess you can never be too rich.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  1. If someone can afford to order items from Amazon they are certainly able to pay for their own food. And if they are able-bodied there should be a work requirement. The War on Poverty is over and the taxpayer lost. Stop paying people for not working. You'd be surprised how quickly the unemployment rate drops. - Elric

    1. I'm no admirer of Bezos or dedicated fan of Amazon (I refuse to pay into Amazon Prime), but you can buy food on-line from Amazon. Smart food shoppers can save money on their household budget as long as the shipping is free, which is supposed to be the case for Prime. If you live in a food desert and don't have a low cost Wal-Mart or Target store nearby, this could work.

    2. PS: If you buy food on-line from Amazon, my advice is to stay away from the Tuscan milk.
