Participation in EarnFare is voluntary. If it were truly 'absolutely terrible', nobody would be doing it.

Participation is limited to 6 months out of every 12 month period- - sounds like the idea is to provide an opportunity to get some work experience rather requiring anyone to work in order to receive their SNAP benefit.

Just because people do something that nets them a little bit of money when they have basically NO money doesn't mean they aren't being exploited.

I'm not having a conversation with you on this, just stating a fact.

I hadn't made the new thread because I was trying to come up with a good way to continue the theme. Good job, you!

Then they are free to not participate.

Participation in EarnFare is voluntary.

...and feel free to not have a conversation with me on this- - I was just pointing out how you misrepresented the program.

I was all for continuing Inquizitor's SW theme.

I never said it wasn't voluntary. I said it was exploitive even if those who participate do it voluntarily. But you predictably have no concept of what it would be like to REALLY NEED that $300 a month in order to survive, as in need it to the point that you'd agree to BE exploited in order to get it.

Just the very idea that someone doing a thing "voluntarily" in exchange for money they need to live means that they cannot possibly be being exploited in the process is idiotic.

For never saying it wasn't voluntary, you seem to blur the line with your comment about 'work requirements for food assistance'...

If they REALLY NEED that $300 a month, can't they just get a regular job rather than bother with the program?

"Can't poor people just like, decide not to be poor?"

Yeah, nope. Not having this discussion with you. You lack the understanding and empathy for it to be even remotely worthwhile, on top of your inevitable SeaLioning.

You seem to clearly tie Earnfare to 'work requirements for food assistance'.

Anyway, as this is the Trump thread, a highlight from his Michigan speech last night:

Calling the asylum-seeking process "a big fat con job" (sense of irony and self-awareness: zero), and literally mocking asylum-seekers in his speech.

Again, congratulations to Republicans for managing to elect one of the worst possible human beings on earth.

Oh and also, after three days of letting Betsy De Vos catch the heat for cutting 100% of the govt's funding to the Special Olympics, he magically comes out and says that the funding will be reinstated.

The funding. Which was only recommended for cuts. In HIS BUDGET. That's the whole reason she was even having to defend that decision to begin with; because HE marked it for cuts in his presidential budget.

It's actually kinda fun to see Bird constantly outraged at every little thing Trump does (or is perceived by Bird to do). It will be impressive if she can keep up the level for 2 more years...

Yeah, sorry for expecting a basic level of competency and humanity from the president. At least this presidency has exposed a lot of people for the garbage they are, though.

Detained migrant girl died of 'rapidly progressing' bacterial infection

Trump has repeatedly lied about this girl's death in CBP custody, claiming that her father "admitted fault" and hadn't given her any water for days and days.

The father has NEVER said he was at fault for his daughter's death, and this autopsy shows that he wasn't. The president repeated this disgusting smear *today*.

As the originator of the trump megathread I approve of the title.
