Lack Of Funds On An EBT Card Foils Bombing Of St Louis Arch

ST. LOUIS • Two men indicted last week on federal weapons charges allegedly had plans to bomb the Gateway Arch — and to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson — the Post-Dispatch has learned.

Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.

The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.

How in the Hell can people use food stamps to buy bomb making materials? The whole system is screwed up. Liberals do this crap. Food stamp benefits should be monitored and retailers that accept them for anything but food should be thrown in jail.

So, let me see if I have this straight. My tax money is used to feed these lazy worthless bastards. And their way of saying thanks to the American taxpayer is to plant bombs. Probably the only initiative they've ever shown.
