32. In addition, most poor folks don't own that fridge,

the landlord does. That goes for AC if it's there. If you're poor, you can't afford to fill the fridge or turn on the AC, no matter how hot it is.

People might pay using food stamps and then load the food into a Lexus. That just means the fall has been really fast and the repo man hasn't found the car yet.

You won't get rich eating on food stamps. For one thing, the diet they afford is spartan, to say the least. For another, most people with kids find there's month left over with no money on the card, so they have to make use of the local food bank, rescue missions, and anywhere else they can feed themselves and the kids until the new money is deposited on midnight at the first of the month.

People getting food stamps need them. People who sneer at people getting food stamps are scum.
