Observation on food stamps

Posted on Facebook about a year ago:

Grandstanding by celebrities aside, food stamps are not meant to purchase all of someone’s food. The abbreviation for the program is SNAP and the first letter stands for “Supplemental.” As in it is meant as an aid to purchasing necessary food, not that the government will purchase all of your food for you.

Such is the burden of being a hardcore literalist.
