4. Absolutely not--polar bears should buy food with those stamps.
Now, if they buy the food and resell it, and then use the proceeds to buy time machines, well, they're technically breaking the law, but they aren't effecting a change in policy WRT the appropriate use of the food stamp benefit.

11. It's obviously a food-related expense
They have to travel backward in time in order to find food these days.

Never forget, my friends, the very word arctic means "bear."

27. Absolutely.
They need the time machines to get back to a time when they weren't endangered and facing extinction due to climate change. :(
