Food Stamps now accepted at Papa Murphy's Pizza

Sorry for deleting all of the old posts on this blog. I am not sure what motivated me to do that, I was just not feeling it at the time.

Blogging is mostly a way to vent in the best of circumstances, I know I don't have a lot of readers on this blog, but then something happens that I just want to yell about and I have nobody to vent to, so then it is back to the blog. That is what happened to me today. I saw a big advertisement outside of Papa Murphy's take and bake pizza that announced “we accept EBT”. For those that don't understand what this means, it means food stamps. EBT stand for “Electronic Benefit Transfer” and is basically a credit card that allows you to buy food and stuff using other peoples money. Normally I simply don't dwell on things like that, but Papa Murphy's pizza is not exactly a meal for those acting in a frugal manner. It is just a slap in the face to poor people who don't take government benefits and actually have to live like they are poor to have expensive restaurant pizza being paid for by food stamps.
