Phillips: Protesters versus those who riot

I like to write my weekly column on humorous topics when possible.

The EBT card is the modern-day equivalent of what is commonly called "food stamps," and is a government-provided program for people of lower income to acquire food. EBT cards have a benefit amount credited to them each month and at the store function the same as a debit or credit card.

Given the fact they are "hired" and employed by the voting public, their lives are a nearly constant campaign for re-election. I can understand that.
