    Washington sends $1 food stamp checks to 250,000
    The Associated Press
    OLYMPIA, Wash. The state of Washington sent out $1 checks to the 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state.

    The director of the Community Services Division for the Department of Social and Health Services, Leo Ribas, says the checks mailed Feb. 17 trigger an additional $43 million in federal food benefits. They also connect recipients to an energy assistance program.

    Ribas says the $1 check is a one-time move to leverage the federal money. He says next year the state will be able to trigger the federal assistance through a routine deposit in food stamp accounts.

    And to think that people in the media look at us bubbas from West Virginia, Louisiana, Kentucky, and other states with redneck attributes as being uneducated and stoopid. The old saying "Stupid is as Stupid does" sure applies to those Yuppie, pinko communist politicians in Washington.

    One government entity just spent $355,000 not counting labor cost to pull another government entities string. :rolleyes: :mad:

    Gee, wouldn't a phone call have done the trick. :rolleyes: :mad:

    Unfortunately, nope. Our federal government is quite comfortable with this answering-to-no-one position they've created for themselves, and they generally choose to flaunt that by making everyone else jump through hoops.

    As far as these people are concerned, they have an endless money supply, so why not?
