California scheming: Surfer dude living off food stamps

Here’s a glimpse into the life of a California surfer dude, 29-year-old Jason Greenslate, living the good life in La Jolla, complements of friends, family and the American taxpayer.

Because Greenslate is unemployed, he’s able to claim benefits under the EBT/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). And why is Greenslate unemployed? Not because of the economy, not because he was laid off and not because he suffers from an injury or ailment. He’s unemployed simply because he chooses to be.

The Obama administration has lowered the standards to receive federal SNAP benefits, resulting in a 70 percent increase in program enrollment in the almost five years since his inauguration.

Watch the clip, taken from a one-hour special that aired Friday night, compliments of Fox News.

    crud like this is the reason the America many of us have known while growing up , is going down the tubes. Entitlement and me first, no service to country and nothing great like the Apollo project again. We are done… bread and circuses for the voters. A real shame and a total 180 from the hard work of the founding fathers who came to this land after months of sea travel and dug into the ground while suffering deprivation and attacks of disease, cold and famine.

    I had the experience of watching this program the other night. Not only is this low life endulging himself with lobster and gormet foods on our dime, but the USDA is running radio programs set in story form episodes to entice the spanish speaking community to get on board and get SNAP.

    Just another note. I was talking to a friend of mine from work and his wife worked at the local grocery for years. On one occasion, specifically, she was stocking some shelves and two young women we talking as they were shopping. One said to the other, “I can get three hundred more in food stamps if I get pregnant one more time. So, I think I will get pregnant again”.

    Thats where we are folks. Its time for major change.

      Involuntary sterilization should be the law of the land.

        Not necessarily. However, real education would be a start. I mean the kind that teaches how to be self-sufficient, not insufficient.

      Untrue, you do not get $300 per child. Another right wing urban legend. And you saw her load her groceries into a Cadillac Escalade, while talking on an IPhone. Right?

        Between Food Stamps, WIC, Medical Care and Housing it actually is around 167.00 per day according to the stats for 2012 or 30.00 per hour.

    Media Matters is investigation this so called “Surf Bum” Look for the story to break later this week.

    1. ericdondero says:

      The Media Matters “investigation” of the Surf Bum was weak. Really weak. They presented zero evidence to refute was Fox was saying, just liberal leftist pablum. What a crappy organization MM is. They’re like the worst of Hitler, combined with Communist Stalinism, sprinkled with a little Orwellian fascism just for kicks.

      1. jack31961 says:

        Dramatic much?

    That man is clearly an alcoholic, which is an illness, which can be debilitating. Disabling. Just because an addict won’t admit that their entire life revolves around their illness, doesn’t mean it isn’t true, and it doesn’t mean they aren’t worthy of the same charity we would extend to anyone who was sick for so long.

  8. Venharis says:

    This is what they are up to – Look up the Cloward–Piven strategy.

    The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward (1926–2001) and Frances Fox Piven (b. 1932) that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”. Cloward and Piven were a married couple who were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work. The strategy was formulated in a May 1966 article in liberal[1] magazine The Nation titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty”

    A GUARANTEED ANNUAL INCOME??? COMPLETE MORONS!!!

    I agree it’s a Fox News ploy, I’m hesitant to take anything on Fox seriously as they are so unbelievably bias. Maybe if we didn’t outsource and we actually employed our own people no one would need to get government assistance. I hate how we judge people who are in the low income category, some people really do struggle and lets remember that not EVERYONE abuses the system like this schmuck. People continually whine and complain about “lazy bottom feeders” but lets not forget that these “lazy bottom feeders” have children who need food. The Christian way is not to judge.
