    A Florida man is stoking confusion after he tried to buy a $60,000 BMW with his credit card and EBT card – and apparently wouldn’t take no for an answer.

    Authorities say the perplexed managers at an auto dealership in Pompano Beach “declined 36-year-old Nicholas Jackson’s business” when he offered to pay with food stamps.

    But it didn’t just stop at that. Jackson “appeared determined to have that BMW one way or another,” the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.

    And apparently a gas card.

    It just goes to show that there must have been something mentally wrong with this man. Steal a car, run out of gas, stay in car?? Think you can buy a car with EBT? Does he even have that much money on the card? I doubt it.

    A few decades ago I knew a gentleman who, due to mental illness, lost control of his financial affairs to his children. He decided to retaliate by spending his allowance on a down-payment on a Corvette. Said that he would drive it until it was repossessed, which he did until it was.

    We are all entitled to vehicle ownership, it’s a God given right. Why you folks think luxury cars should be limited to the rich is beyond me. The man was taking the car that he deserved. And he offered payment, of sorts.

    I mean, when it comes to the watches we deserve, you wouldn't expect him to settle for a Seiko when he deserve a Tag Heuer....or better yet....a Patek Philippe, would you? The same goes for cars. Stop discriminating and share the wealth. If God didn't want us to drive He wouldn't have told us to go into all the world anyway. If you ain't for Him, you're against Him. It's basic theology, Rev.

    And to prove the point, would this even have been a story if it was some rich white guy buying a Prius on credit??

    Ever notice that Smart Car thefts never make the news?

    Probably because they are rarely stolen...

    Bernie will be making that one of his new campaign promises. Free luxury car, as long as it is made outside of the US. Well that is if obamo doesn't do it first.
