Don’t ask me why but I was searching to see if you really can order lobster tails from Amazon. Turns out you can, who knew? But I also noticed something else when I saw some of the lobster offerings….
Yep, you can order a “Lobster Gram” from Amazon and have it delivered right to your house for $466.67 and even better, you can pay for it with your food stamps/EBT card! Or even smarter, you could finance your lobster for six months, making $77.75 payments.
This meal is $4.57 per ounce, and with 16 ounces to a pound that makes this $73.12/pound. You can pay for with tax payer funded food stamps. At least the delivery is free.
If we lived in a sane country, it wouldn’t be possible to use food stamps to buy lobster from Amazon. Nor would you be able to use government food assistance for Mountain Dew or Cheetos or Snickers. I suspect a very large percentage of the food stamp spending in America goes toward junk food that helps to contribute to poor people being obese, in turn leading to expensive medical issues that the tax payers also get to pay for. It is like making you pay for a house and then making you pay for the gasoline so an arsonist can burn down that house. Of course we live in the precise opposite of a sane country and so you can see people at the Walmarts with carts full of junk food and paying for that junk food with food stamps.
These are the kinds of mind games they play with us to drive us slowly insane, as people with middle class incomes struggle to put decent food on the table while food stamp recipients can buy lobster and have it delivered to their front door.
