Well... who knew...

Apparently.. in Texas.. the crime of possessing a controlled substance.. is enough to disqualify you from ever.. in life.. I mean.. FOREVER in life.. from receiving food stamps... Doesn't matter if you have changed your life.. doesn't matter that you did your time.. served the sentence imposed by the law.. just doesn't matter.. you can't get em..

However.. if you KILL someone.. RAPE someone.. or even MOLEST SOMEONE'S CHILD..or ROB A BANK... or STEAL A CAR.. or.. well I think you get the idea by mow... you can commit ANY CRIME.. as long as it isn't having dope.. then you are perfectly welcome to get aid if you need it.. or.. probably even if you don't.

Does this seem like you are being punished for the same crime all over again? Oh wait.. being punished for life? I thought I got a 4 year sentence...

And you thought double jeapordy was against the law.. well I did anyway... Turns out.. ehh not so much...

Move to Alabama, we don't care.
Unless you make $7 an hour and have a kid, then you don't qualify.

Well, that doesn't seem fair to me.

You need to move out of that state, really. I know you talk funny and everything, but someplace else will accept you. I mean if George Bush can go to Washington D.C. your options have got to be limitless.

There is a lot to be thankful for. Like your feet don't look like that ducks over there. I dated a girls whose did; what a hell of a swimmer she was.

Texas... they forget they're a state at times, I think. That just sucks, I'm sorry.
