Fast food Companies are lining up to be able to accept food stamps. What are your thoughts on this?
I have mixed emotions:
I am against the whole “fast food” industry as whole, from their marketing to children, their contribution to the destruction of our environment, and their contribution to the obesity and health problems here in the states…
But on the other hand, I’ve been so poor that I relied on assistance at one time in my life and I know how it felt. I certainly wouldn’t have appreciated what would have felt like the further denigration of having “people” tell me what I was, and was not permitted to eat when I was on assistance.
