What a, uh, surprise:

A federal grand jury indicted 10 Baltimore business owners or operators on charges of stealing nearly $7 million from food assistance programs by agreeing to debit cash for beneficiaries without selling food — then keeping a cut of the proceeds.

The owner of a corner grocery in West Baltimore called “Second Obama Express” is accused of obtaining more than $2 million in payments for food sales that never occurred, a practice that authorities call “food stamp trafficking.” Eight others are accused of taking between $348,000 and $1.4 million.

The store owner will probably now be forced to go into the “green energy” business and start a company called “Obamalyndra.”

    I'm surprised Obama isn't giving them a medal for stimulating the economy.

    That's not fraud… that's Marxist entrepreneurship in action.

    If they had included solar panels or Chevy Volts in their line of merchandise, they would be hunky dory with Eric Holder.

    which was then a lot more local. The adults would sit around talk about politics in pre- first Intifada Palestine and we would enjoy whatever deserts they are serving that night. The street lights and decorations were dazzling to our little minds.
