  1. I actually witnessed at the Tamuning Cost U Less a Quest card couple who came out of the store and headed to a vehicle I thought was theirs. They opened the vehicle and proceeded to load groceries. The funny thing about it was that they didn’t load ALL of the groceries. They then went to another vehicle across the way and loaded the remaining groceries into it. I’m guessing that they were sharing with another family. The culture I see here of HELP ME. I CAN’T FEND FOR MYSELF makes me sick. Get off your duggans and earn a living like normal people do even if it means working at a burger joint or cleaning public restrooms. Stop leaching from the government! Food stamps are supposed to be temporary but here on Guam, it lasts generations. Taimamalao! (Shameful!)
