My mother and her friend were on the phone. As soon as my mother hung up Iheard what her friend said.

Her friend (obviously a Fox News watcher) Do you know why we pay so much in groceries?

My mother: No.

Her friend: Food stamps. Groceries can charge more knowing people will pay with food stamps.

My mother: Never thought of it.

Now my mother thinks her friend has a point. I said that make no sense. That there are many variables that go into food prices and I doubt food stamps is even remotely a factor.

Is this a new right wing attack on food stamp receivers? Blaming them for cost of food.

I never heard this before. I assume its new. It comes across as something Drunk Uncle would say. Except neither drink.
