The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The idea of food stamps came from the late Hubert Horatio Humphrey, Jr., but their expansion benefactor was HHH’s old opponent, Richard M. Nixon, in whose terms the numbers exploded. Now it looks like the Nixon numbers were small after all.
The only way we can end this mess now is to cloward and piven this system down, starve uit on the input and explode the outputs...
I was thinking something along those lines. There’s few things this administration cares about than the white, WWII generation who love the country they fought for.
I smell a triangulation coming.
Sortof a last ditch alternative, but it may be the only way.
What do you bet the Boston bombers were on SNAP?
WHY DO THEY NEED RECRUITMENT? IF YOU ARE STARINV YOU KNOW YOU NEED ASSISTANCE
The article says per month
The parents of the bombers were on family assistance, so the boys received assistance too. Tamerlan’s family was on assistance until last year, I think, when his wife’s overtime income made them ineligible. And let’s not forget school scholarships. America has been good to them.
Rush said it best,
“Liberals measure compassion by how many people are given welfare. Conservatives measure compassion by how many people no longer need it.”
Post of the day.
The original article and its headline said ‘per day’. They were changed in response to a comment pointing out the error.
if that broad signs up 150/month she should arrested for fraud!
Food stamps should be eliminated totally!!!
Make your own way in this world or lie down and die!
soon, you’ll need food stamps to buy food (food stamp recipients vote D at least 90%, everyone else can just go and starve)
And just for fun maybe, it seems impossible not to at least recall....Revelation 13 (Authorized, or King James Version):
13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
(No missionary intent to the above. It just seems an amazingly accurate description of current events. ????)
(As Ace Ventura): "Well allrighty then."
Yes. Even to this agnostic.
Years ago a government worker tried to get my mom on Welfare. My mom has NEVER TAKEN welfare or food stamps.
She later found the gov’t worker was doing it for the worker’s job security.
Can anyone explain why there a quota for signing up people for a government benefit program exists at all?
“What do you bet the Boston bombers were on SNAP?”
Bingo! Drudge posted a link to an article stating the eldest brother’s family was on welfare.
Our Tax Dollars At Work...Destroying America!
Gubbamint exists to grow gubbamint.
That news was on the media this AM.
ALL of them: Mom-Dad-older brother-younger brother-wife of older brother-3 year old son of older brother.
They wore expensive clothes and had lots of expensive sports equipment. One attended college & had a dorm room. They were known to drive Porche’s and Mercedes Benz’s. They partied & smoked Pot.
I have worked all of my life & I have never driven either!!
The American taxpayers were bilked AGAIN-—and these people hated America & were willing to kill Americans with their actions.
We have FAR too many fox inside the American henhouse, IMO.
This country needs a severe housecleaning.
We know someone who works as a councilor for the Chicago School System. She mentioned in a small gathering how her main job was to recruit students and families on to disability, not council them on their careers or how to get into college.
She explained that disabled students (ADHD and such) are excluded from test averages for the school and those who are on financial aid, benefit the school greatly in terms of federal money.
She felt lost, and lamented about how this was not what she had signed up for (she is a good Christian woman who volunteered to work the inner city, because she thought she could make a difference).
She said she was always under pressure to get more families on public aid, and on disability.
Government is full of liberal go getter entrepreneurs expanding their growing bureaucrat empire. Obviously this is going on in food stamp/EBT programs. More people on EBT means more Gov’t employees in your bureaucrat mini-empire. More power and higher salary for such go-getters
“If you’re not part of the solution...there’s money to be made prolonging the problem”
The goal is clearly to crash the system. That is bad, but if we as conservatives plan well, we can reset it back to 1776 America instead of 1918 Russia.
