I see from my Newsfeed/Real life some women are starting to be more humble now days. The end "Tax Season" must be drawing near.I even found some Food Stamps.
"A message to the Republican Party who just granted a $1 billion loan to Ukraine but blocked all Veteran's Bills: Veteran's Jobs Bill, Veteran's Benefits Bill, and Food Stamps Extension to the 5,000 Military families on Food Stamps." - Marian Fisher
From the MAKE A DIFFERENCE PARTY. Love and Harmony. Lend a helping hand, don't be so high and mighty that you see the less fortunate a problem or a burden. Everything we achieved in life can be taken away then where would you be. People look at welfare and food stamp handout for lazy people how don't wanna do anything to help themselves. They really don't know who all the beneficiaries of these programs. Here just a few. Military Families, Employed Single Parent Families Hard Working Families, Senior Citizens, People With Disabilities. The Welfare and Food Stamps programs been around for years, before a lot of us was born. The Welfare and Food Stamp program was not something that President Obama started. He had nothing to do with starting those programs. I know this will not change the mind of some people about these to programs. I'M JUST SAYING!

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment: 1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering. 2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't. Think about it. Last but not least 3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments to illegal aliens. This is what illegal’s receive monthly, $1500.00 per child, $500 for housing, Food Stamps, and in some States, Free education including college. Am I the only one missing something here? It ...
Republicans are setting sights to hurt all sources of income for the middle and lower class. * Unemployment extension - denied * Social Security - trying to completely defund * Food Stamps being cut - trying to completely defund * Medicare / Medicaid / ACA - trying to completely defund * Collective Bargaining - trying to void state by state * Minimum Wage - being obstructed Debt is a commodity, big corporations trade is credit debt swaps. There are record monopolies occurring, besides that they are crossing industries like never before. Lobbyists help them remove blocks to predatory lending. They are too big to fail, the stock market crash was not an accident. It just opened the door to profit off of small companies and individuals going into default. Thus the reason for the double bounce back on the stocks and no recovery for the general population. The credit reporting agencies will allow them to profit for many years to come also. It is the gift that keeps on giving. I have no experience in the finance ...
The Ohio State University Food Fellows is now complete! How did you do? REFLECTION of the day: After living on a limited budget this week, how has your perspective changed about decisions families facing hunger must make? Have you considered decisions between food and rent? Food and gas? Food and medicine/Health Care? Food and utilities? November budget cuts decreased SNAP by about $36/month or under $1.40 per meal. How would your meals look if you had even less to spend on food? Or were caught off guard by a job loss and not "prepared" to live on a limited budget? Be sure to join us THIS THURSDAY, March 6, from 6-7:30 for a conversation with Mid-Ohio Foodbank about SNAP/Food Stamps in 115 Stillman Hall! Share your ideas about what you have learned and what we can do based on our experiences. Good things happen when diverse groups of people come together and work towards finding solutions to complex problems! Thanks also to Ohio Association of Foodbanks for their social media support and for participation ...

Great internship opportunity at the Food Bank!! CalFresh (formerly called Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program that helps individuals and families purchase additional healthy food by awarding benefits on a card that can be used at stores where groceries are sold. Of the thousands of San Diegans who qualify for this assistance, about 40% don’t take advantage. In fact, San Diego County holds the lowest participation rate of any urban county in the United States. Of the current participants, 84% are families with children, 3% contain one or more elderly and disabled members and 40% are working families. The Food Bank’s CalFresh Outreach Program staff has organized various hub sites throughout San Diego County to make it easier and more comfortable for people to apply for the CalFresh Program. Community Partners host the CalFresh Outreach Team and become a hub site for the community and its residents. People can visit a hub-site to receive prescreening and one-on-one application assistance inst ...
Kornacki keep digging more news from our Fat *** Chris Christie and Scott Walker And Associates! President Obama there is millions of kids are Starving to death because you gutted the Food Stamps for the Breakfast in the Public Schools! They are being humiliating to our young Citizens at School! Where is the Farm Bill! Were these Suckers are making money by Signing that Bill!
So the report comes out to say the largest beneficial group of "Food Stamps". Not the Black woman with an abundance of fatherless siblings. Not the Illegal Alien we want to deport. Not the Senior Citizen who worked their *** off to build this great country. Not the Indian we stole this land from. Instead its the United States Military. That's right. The men and woman who actually put on a uniform to defend the honour of Democracy, can't even buy a decent meal without help.Long live the 1% whose right to keep us down they fought to defend.
Received a communication from my excellent patriot friend, Jeri LeRoi. Among other things, she referenced a resolution by the Republican National Committee opposing an Article 5 Convention. My response follows: As you (I hope) know, I am far from being a shill for the party. I find myself in opposition on a regular basis regarding many issues . This time, however, I think they have it right. The potential rewards are no where near worth the risks involved. In a nation that twice elected Obama, with almost half not paying income tax, with so many on Food Stamps and Obamaphones, etc., we are unwise to call this convention at this time. We are in the minority. Until we can remedy that, we are best served to keep our powder dry.
I liked a video from Rep Jim McGovern Thanks PDA for Standing Up for SNAP (Food Stamps)
The (Tea Party) Republican-controlled House of Representatives worked slightly more than 1/3 (actually 34.5%) of the year and earned $174,000 a year. Yet, somehow, they justify cutting Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, aka Food Stamps) by $39 Billion and Extended Unemployment Assistance for MILLIONS of people because they say these benefits make people LAZY. Am I understanding this correctly? The people making $174,000 for jobs that, at best, could be classified as part-time or seasonal, with outlandish benefits, say WHO'S lazy? WE NEED TO FIRE THEM ALL! In November 2014, let's clean House!
Why are we paying for the gov to advertise Food Stamps in MEXICO?
Cheeky Lady says: And now, via the Farm Bill, many who needed to go on food stamps, those who rely on extra assistance, will be 90 dollars a month short & those with children are being punished to stop, what is it the legislators said? FRAUD.. Punish children and families for those who may be doing fraud! Why not punish JP Morgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, for his complicity in fraud? Don't understand the correlation. Do some research. Energy assistance and Food Stamps are handled by JP Morgan... My what a tangled web "We" weave when first "We" practice to deceive..America's shame is her legislators, DC law makers, have no shame!

Written by a brother who's wife works for an "exchange" Here is something from what is going on at the Obama Care Health "Choice" centers: As a person has their insurance canceled because it does not meet the "Obamacare" requirements, they are told they must apply ( or of course pay a fine - more on that later) for Obama Care Health Choice approved plans. Then they are told that they must first see if they are Medicaid elligible. Most spend alot of time in that cycle, and are told they are not elligible, so back they come. Then they have to be cleared by Homeland Security, Experian Credit Bureau, and Immigration, Social Security, and programs related to Food Stamps and Welfare/Social Services, and yes, the Justice Department and IRS. All these departments are supposed to be be beeped upon the application for enrollment being completed, if the person gets that far...! And then they can be approved to be in the great and powerful Obama's Obamacare plan - which will cost them more in deductibles and in almos ...

Another amazing gift that God had brought in 2010, was to be respectful and humble. One reason why I got so fat around that time was a warning that we never know when Food Stamps and SSI from Social Security Administration is going to be wiped out completely, so I have to remain humble knowing that there are reasons why we don't waste food.

As you may know, 2014 is a big year for the Battery as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary at Valley Forge. As part of the festivities, we thought it would be interesting to look back at what was going on when we were founded in 1939: In sports, the first NFL Pro-Bowl was played with the New York Giants defeating the All Stars 13-10 in Wrigley Field; the 1st NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament was won by Oregon; a young Ted Williams hit the first home run of his career while the Yankee’s “Iron Horse”, Lou Gehrig, ended his; and the Baseball Hall of Fame opened its doors in Cooperstown, NY. In culture, Batman debuted; John Steinbeck’s novel "The Grapes of Wrath" was published; and both the “Wizard of Oz” and “Gone with the Wind” premiered. In the United States, Food Stamps were issued for the first time; the New York Municipal Airport (later renamed LaGuardia Airport) began operations; Hewlett-Packard Company was founded; the St. Louis, a ship carrying a cargo of 907 Jewish refugees, was deni ...

FYI: for the many people on Food Stamps and otherwise not a member of Warren Buffett's Christmas list. You might find this informative, before you post another comment by Robert Reich. Posting anything by Reich indicates you know nothing about him. He was part of the DC wrecking crew who cut welfare by destroying AFDC, signed NAFTA, bombed Serbia, and opened up the banking industry for corruption that lead to the 2008 collapse.
It’s State of the Union tonight. And the state of Obama’s America is not good. The news is out. Our "king" is naked. The Emperor has no clothes. • Jobs: Ninety-two million Americans are out of the workforce. • Health Insurance: Five-plus million Americans who had health insurance have now lost that health insurance. As many as 25 million more could lose their insurance this year. All of it due to Obamacare. • Poverty: Fifty million Americans now live below the poverty level, a number which has risen to the highest level in American history since the 1960’s as calculated by the US Department of Labor. • Food Stamps: A record forty seven million Americans are on Food Stamps. • U.S. Debt: Now stands at a first-time record of over $17 trillion. The national debt has increased by $6 trillion under Obama, surpassing George W. Bush’s eight years back in 2012 — after just three years and two months in office. • Energy: And as the cold grips America, energy costs soar. He will champion polici ...
This is the reply I received from my Senator when I asked his position on Food Stamps. "Dear Brad, Thank you for contacting me to share your support for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. I share your support and I appreciate hearing from you. The economic and unemployment crises continue to hit Oregon especially hard, and record numbers of Oregonians are turning to food banks and pantries for their daily meals. Last year, Oregon food banks distributed over one million emergency food boxes for the second year in a row, a 41 percent increase since 2008. Considering these sobering facts, I was disappointed with the SNAP cuts in the most recent Senate Farm Bill, and I cosponsored an amendment that would have blocked them entirely. Unfortunately, this amendment did not pass. Currently, a Farm Bill conference committee is working to reconcile Farm Bills passed by the Senate and House of Representatives. I am hopeful that the final bill that comes befo ...
DID YOU KNOW? Last year the Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as Food Stamps, reported $2.5 billion in improper payments!! HUH, Imagine that! Food for thoought!
50 years ago yesterday, Lyndon Johnson declared unconditional war on poverty. I was an early soldier in that war, first as the Youth Development Director for the Community Action Agency in Salisbury, Maryland and later as Executive Director of the Baltimore County Community Action Agency. I taught Community Organization at Towson University during that period. It was a heady time for a young idealist, we were going to end poverty once and for all. Johnson's initiatives were fought tooth and nail by conservatives from the beginning, Republicans have continuously attacked the programs as huge failures. Nothing could be further from the truth. The biggest single program passed by Johnson to fight poverty was Medicare. Along with Social Security, Medicare has lifted countless millions out of poverty and prevented even more from falling into poverty. Today, the SNAP program (Food Stamps) continues to lift millions out of poverty. Johnson's initiatives included amendments to Social Security which lowered the el ...
POLITICIANS THINK THEY ARE DOING THE UNEMPLOYED A FAVOR. "Helping those in need should not be a partisan issue," Helping those in Need? Lets look at the other side of this equation: The Government controls Social Security, SSI, Medicare, Medicaid, Prescription Drug Plans, Food Stamps, Hud, Va, Farm Insurance, Flood Insurance, Fani and Freddie Mae and Mac, and a legion of Taxable and tax exempt organizations which adds up to most of the economy. Sadly it was the political party in power(My Republican Party) that was in control at the time and had the bone head idea of less government control of a Controlled Economy, which they failed to control and allowed the system to crash into the ditch, making 10's of Millions unemployed. Now they sit there as if they are doing those that are unemployed a favor. Your mismanagement of the economy is the cause of those people being unemployed and you act as if you are doing them a favor? It is pass time that Congress got off of their butts and did their *** Jobs. You c ...

Don't say that. The next batch of kids are gonna be named Food Stamps and White Owl...
So, had a chat with a man coming out of the military about available jobs with his very bright 5 year old boy. The little boy said to me, "I am oldest of 3." very proudly and reserved Still he made a day out with dad go pretty well. "Do you get up early in the morning to help your mom and dad get your little brothers to school?" I asked. He shook his head. Instead he started talking about the wonderful Christmas he had and honorable mention of the gift Santa brought him as his father who was an avid supporter of his suns rambles, humbly filing for food stamps. It happens i too am an avid supporter of a good story teller. "We are all about the hunting and I raise my kids to be rednecks." I respected that. By all means we were in the Food Stamps office. I could see his heartwarming gesture raise the bog of the office. The women next me began to speak to the kid like she was picking up where i left off. The kid was a talker and everybody had to love him because if you didn't you were the fool on everyones sh ...
Denise Lewis, funny that you mention this. I went to the store. Man, lady with their children, she pays for the basket full of groceries with Food Stamps, he had a separate transaction to pay for the case of beer. Mind you, he pulls his wallet out with several hundred dollar bills.. go figure!
Would Jesus like: Republican Stephen Fincher of Tennessee's explanation for his vote for the cuts to Food Stamps (attached to The Farm Bill) using the Bible verse: 2 Thessalonians 3:10: “For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: Anyone unwilling to work should not eat.” so there would be more money for Farm Subsidies for rich Farmers like himself ? Fincher himself has received his own large share of government money. From 1999 to 2012, Stephen & Lynn Fincher Farms received $3,483,824 in agriculture subsidies. Last year he took in $70,574 alone. Another Republican congresswoman who voted to make cuts to the food stamp program was Rep. Vicky Hartzler of Missouri. Her farm received more than $800,000 in Department of Agriculture subsidies from 1995-2012. In 2001, her farm received $135,482 in subsidies. Rep. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, who also voted to make cuts to the program, was a partner in Racota Valley Ranch, her family’s farm and previously had nearly a 17% stake through 20 ...

It's supposed to be 41 and sunny tomorrow for our rally in downtown Akron! Here are the details again: Thursday, December 19 from 4-5:30pm. Akron Vigil Federal Building, Main and Market street, downtown Akron Congress approved Food Stamp cuts of $5 billion effective November 1. More cuts proposed: $39 billion over 10 years by U.S. House, $4.1 billion over the same period by U.S. Senate. - 1 in 6 Ohio families don’t know where their next meal will come from. - 47 million Americans depend on Food Stamps for basic survival. - 1.8 million Ohioans live in poverty. If Congress can bailout banks and give tax breaks to the rich – they can preserve and expand Food Stamps. These proposed cuts are indecent, indefensible and immoral! Food Stamps Save Lives! Reduce Hunger, Not Food Stamps! Don't balance the budget on the backs of the hungry! Congress will take up finalizing the Farm Bill (containing the Food Stamp program) in January. We need to let them know that creating more hungry people is not acceptable. Vig ...
December 16, 2013 Food Stamps by Kerby Anderson The last few weeks of budget negotiations hit a snag over the funding of the Farm Bill. The debate was over the funding of food stamps, also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The holiday season is probably not the best time to discuss food stamps since any proposed reduction or revision can easily be attacked as being insensitive to people's needs during Christmas. Nevertheless, it is worth taking a look at this government program that has grown so large in just the last decade. Michael Tanner writes about "Five Food-Stamp Myths." One myth is that the increase in food stamp spending is due to the recession. While studies do show an increase in food stamps during the recession, much of the increase occurred under George W. Bush. In fact, the costs and number of recipients doubled during his time in office. Another myth is that food stamps reduce hunger. Michael Tanner says that it is "hard to imagine that the government could spen ...
Paul Ryan voted for 2 wars - unpaid. Paul Ryan voted for tax cuts for the rich - unfunded. Paul Ryan voted to allow Wall St to tank the economy. Now Paul Ryan says we can't afford Food Stamps, Medicare or Social Security anymore. Y'THINK!??!!!??
Democrats and Progressives are LOSING the war. Oh we are winning battles here and there, equal rights for the LGBT community, some regulation of Big Banks, a Health Care bill (still being vigorously fought), but overall we are losing. Do you believe the Koch Brothers and so many other Far Right advocates are stupid? Perhaps, and it is comforting to categorize your opponent as foolish, uneducated, uncaring, and even evil (and I am sure there are more adjectives), but I think not. This only causees them to be underestimated. I am not talking about the Right Wing-nuts; the (not even)extreme Religious Right, Michele Bachman, et al., for they are only the tools of the right. It's not complicated, the farther to the right you move the conversation, the more extreme points of view expressed by the Wing-nuts, the more the conversation is confused and moved to the right. Thus we lose. We end up with unemployment insurance being cut to the long term unemployed, Food Stamps being cut, affecting thousands of poor ...
ATTENTION FRIENDS! Did you know that Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly called Food Stamps) do NOT cover basic non-food items?

Thanks to the Kansas City Mutual Fund Store for collecting all the important items not covered by Food Stamps!
As those of you who know me well (I think) will agree, I normally do not pontificate. However, I just saw something on CNN's Crossfire that I think begs a response. OK, maybe watching TV itself is the problem. Still. The guests were Paul Begala and Tim Phillips. Phillips made the case for major reform and reductions to Food Stamps in the pending Farm Bill ( the Senate and House bills cut roughly the program, respectively, by $4 billion and $40 billion over 10 years) and made the following statement: "There are $80 billion dollars a year being spent on Food Stamps . . . The same people who brought us that program brought us the Obamacare Rollout. The SAME people". First. I am not speaking well or ill of Obamacare. I simply observe that USDA and HHS are two separate departments. However, I would further note that one year (FY 2012) Food Stamps did hit $80 billion. I know. I was the majority clerk who had to shepherd that bill on the Senate Floor and explain to Leadership (while Jeff Sessions was blasting t ...
45 - I may not be even good for food for the ill employed. I Love You God Thank You. This is the latest I received from DSS: Your case was approved for expedited foodstamps on 11/8/13. You received benefits from 11/8-11/30/13. They are currently working on applications around the 8th of November to process them in full. Please continue to check your card periodically this week to see if you will be approved for ongoing food stamps. If you have no funds on your card by Friday 12/13/13, please contact us again. Albany County SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - formerly known as Food Stamps) I'm not sure what it means, I wasn't expecting food stamps until the 14th (see previous post), but I have checked, twice, and of course, there was nothing. And this person was answering my question, I guess, but not directly. I did respond with a thank you, but I feel it's like the thank you you give a child who gives you something he/she had in her/his mouth. Oh, thank you. Anyway and everyway, the e ...
2. Take the food out of their mouths. Literally. The recent reduction in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits has affected more than 47 million Americans and is the largest wholesale cut in the program since Congress passed the first Food Stamps Act in 1964. The cuts to Food Stamps were implemented on November 1. Yet, Congress won't let the program rest there — House Republicans are pushing to take $39 billion from SNAP over the next decade. If their plan succeeds, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that 3.8 million low-income individuals would lose their benefits in 2014 with 2.8 million more getting kicked off the program each year. SNAP is one of the three most effective anti-poverty programs the government has, keeping four million people out of poverty last year alone. So the initial and further cuts make a lot of sense — if you despise the poor. And don't worry, other cuts to food programs ensure both the oldest and youngest amongst us won't be spared. Cuts to Meals o ...

Food Stamps are cut and kids go hungry so millionaires and billionaires can hoard the nation's wealth, as it sits in offshore accounts.
If so called Congressman Pa 8th Tea Bagger Mike Fitzpatrick, Would do his job and work for the Poor, Middle class and Average American.We would not need Food Banks and places like Salvation Army !! And Mike also Voted to cut Food Stamps for the Poor, Seniors and Vets !!!

JP Morgan Bank, actually had a big hand in Food Stamps for kids...shocking isn't it?
I believe that any thinking person would agree that our government spends our money in a myriad of inappropriate ways. Right? Because we have different priorities and philosophies we will disagree on what's reasonable, necessary, helpful or a waste of our tax dollars. Most of us would also agree that our spending habits are ultimately unsustainable. I also think that most of us would agree that the major areas of budget allocation need to be seriously revisited and reformed to include entitlements, foreign aid and possibly defense. In the middle of many discussions the topic of Food Stamps seems to find the center ring more than often. I personally find this something less than amusing for moral as well as budgetary reasons. Food? Really? WIC? Really? Think about this: According to a recent unchallenged analysis by the Cato Institute a family making $72,000 a year pays close to $6000 in taxes for these items: $870 for direct subsidies and grants to private corporations, farmers, promotion, res ...
If Corey Booker had an ounce of integrity, he would have actively opposed the very costly election 2 weeks ago orchestrated by Chris Christie. Christie coordinated the election, on our dime, so that he could win by a percentage significant enough to qualify him for a presidential bid in 4 years. Using public funds to further his own political agenda in an era when Food Stamps (around $150/month) have been slashed while the rich are given tax exempt status to increase profits, (the consequences of which are masked as a mysterious, randomly occuring, economic "crisis") speaks volumes to his character. Here is my plea to those psuedo-revolutionary wanna be anarchists who rally against voting because "both are worse." Please vote tomorrow to put food on a family's table. Vote for a chance for a kid born into rotten circumstances to get a fair break in a classroom to change them. Don't hold back your vote as some kind of misguided rebellion against your own upper middle class existence where your greatest suff ...

GOP Budget chair Paul Ryan and Alan Greenspan, former Fed chairman often quote Ayn Rand.Paul Ryan requires all staffers to have read 1. 'Atlas Shrugged', 2. 'The Virtue of Selfishness'. Order this, (1961), Amazonbooks.com, $3.99. I have read her books.Republicans are not about 'the 47%". Romney had it right, nailed it. Rand: "Altruism is incompatible with 'conservative values' and man's nature." Today in NC, 550,000 people are cut off from Medicaid (McCrory). Veterans have lost access to Food Stamps.and I am too critical of 'conservtive values'? Read Ayn Rand. Kar.

American government i kind of feel weird to say our government or mine government ,even thought they feed and take care of me and i live in America . It is how mental illness affects me .it refuse to face reality .Cant help it my mind just does not want to submit to higher power .Something is missing in relationship between me and American government .Cant figure out . But since i have experience with mental illness i feel and think that solution for republican and democratic government and people of America is Psychological evaluation . Collective free mental health screening for all of them is solution . To fix mind of people . It should be free because it is where problem is . They argue about Food Stamps and stuff like that but food is not problem .It is mind set tat has to be fixed first , to purify , justify ,clearify their mind .Evaluation should not be for glory or for money it would not work .True mother and father do not give birth to their children for glory or money but for life .I mean spirit ...
The government was just trying to "help" American Indians... The American Government in the Early 1800’s gave many of the starving tribes’ food. Keep in mind; they only needed food because the Govt. killed off their number 1 resource for food and clothing, the buffalo. ( Small Business) So…they killed their buffalo.. But in return gave them "government-funded-food" (Modern equivalent i.e: Food Stamps, EBT cards) The American Government also took their land, but hey, they “gave” them reservations. That is so kind of them to do! (Modern Equivalent: Section 8) The Government was so generous to the Natives, that they even gave them “Choice” and promised them “Change” ! (Sound Familiar?) And boy oh boy, did the Native people receive change! They cut their hair, forced them into American Indian Boarding Schools, forced them into religion...gave them health-care (through churches)… and even “Changed” the language that they spoke. (Native languages were forbidden) Does any of this soun ...

And one more thing before I go to work... cutting back on Food Stamps. Wow, what a brilliant idea [insert sarcasm emoticon]. There's a perception that it's welfare that falls down some kind of black hole of laziness... when in fact it directly stimulates the local economy when it is used to purchase food... (And food is one thing that we purchase that actually is still MADE IN THE USA...) Meanwhile, there are subsidies for big agribusiness. In a world where trickle-down economics works (not this world)... that money would make its way down the chain to the farm workers. But not really; the farm workers make little enough that would be eligible for Food Stamps. BTW, "Food Stamps" is our shorthandhand for "WIC," which stands for "Women, Infants and Children..." Talk about taking it from the mouths of babes...
3 minutes ago · House Bill Cuts SNAP/Food Stamps (The Washington Post, September 19, 2013; The Washington Post, September 17, 2013) By a vote of 217 to 210, the House of Representatives approved a bill containing nearly $40 billion in SNAP/Food Stamp Program cuts on September 19. The program overhaul would reduce aid for four million Americans. Fifteen Republicans and all House Democrats voted against the bill. The GOP “turned their backs” on low-income families with this bill, said Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-NV) in a Senate floor speech. House Democrats continually cited, before the vote, the Los Angeles Times op-ed by former Senate majority leaders Tom Daschle (D-SD) and Bob Dole (R-KS) which stated “this is no time to play politics with hunger.” One lawmaker, according to Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), reportedly received $3,500 for food and lodging – a year’s worth of SNAP/Food Stamps for some recipients – during a six-day trip to Russia. The bill includes reinstatement of work ...
Hey ! Scott Pelley are you counting all the Food Stamps as PERSONAL WEALTH ? No wonder it jumped !
Keep in mind those Politicians ( Almost ALL Republicans by the way) that have recently voted to CUT FOOD STAMPS, CUT Meals on Wheels, CUT Food Stamps for Veterans and Children, and are still trying to DENY us Average Working Americans the ability to get access to Health Care via Obama Care and Medicaid Expansion are by any definition the very well off in our Country. The Rank and File Member of Congress ( House and Senate ) makes a BASE Salary of $174,000 per year. If they are in Leadership they make more. PLUS they all get Health Care Paid For BY OUR TAX Dollars and staring with Oct 1st and beyond they will be in the Very same Health Care Exchanges that TED CRUZ and Others in the GOP want to DENY us Access to ! How many of you right here in the Ohio Valley make what Rep. David McKinley makes $174,000 per year ? And he VOTED to CUT your Food Stamps and Deny you access to Obama Care ! Go Ahead Vote for another Republican and see where you are at 4 years from now !

As far as I can tell, the Affordable Care Act is something called the "Law of the Land." Passed, signed and sealed. The other thing I can tell is that it attempts to deal with some of the great failings of the Health Care system in the U.S.A. It allows young people to stay on their parents' health insurance. It allows people with a "pre-existing condition" to receive Health Care (they might actually need it). It offers support for people who can't afford health insurance. It sets up exchanges that make it possible for small businesses and individuals to afford health insurance. If people don't have health insurance in the U.S., they often delay Health Care or don't get care at all. That means people often have chronic untreated illness or even die because of our messed up Health Care system. This Act, seems to have been the best we could do, short of a single-payer system. And it is the law. To threaten to defund it in the same week when the Congress passed a massive cut to Food Stamps, shows me that ther ...
It has been brought to my attention that 26% of the people Ted Cruz is supposed to be representing do not have Health Coverage and he is standing there speaking to try and make sure they Never Get it either !

Ya'll startin' to see the patterns folks ? Ya Notice how these Yar Tea Publicans say they iz fer you folks and the country but when they has a chance to do something fer us they instead try and CUT Benefits or outright Deny them to us Average Working Folk ?

HAVE WE TURNED THE CORNER ON RESPONSIBILTY AND CIVILAZATION-Just got through with a book by Phil Robertson who everybody seems to approve of. In the final chapters Robertson pays homage to Thomas Jefferson. Citing Jefferson as a hero questions "taking from one because of his own industry" is wrong. Jefferson was indeed a pretty sharp fellow.I shall attempt to explain where I am going with this rambling diatribe. In yesterdays Ledger Enquirer a woman was quoted as saying "I recieve $250.00 a month in Food Stamps, it only last 3 weeks" My point is does this individual hold the opinion that you and I should feed her for the remaining week? I was of the opinion that Food Stamps were supposed to be supplementary. Having children can be "fun" but also carries responsibilities. I saw a newspaper article "Meth, Crack Ring Busted". Do you really think Tom Jefferson ever envisioned or understood such. Really don't think the "America of today " in any way relates to why those Marines dodged those bullets raising tha ...
Cruel Food Stamp Cuts Show Us Who They Are By Dave Johnson September 21, 2013 "Information Clearing House - With one in seven Americans experiencing “food insecurity,” Republicans yesterday passed a terrible and cruel cut in Food Stamps. This shows us just who they are. One In Seven New America Foundation: More Than One in Seven U.S. Households Experienced Food Insecurity Last Year, Approximately 33.1 million adults and 15.9 million children lived in food insecure households in 2012. According to the USDA definition of food insecurity, this means a full 49 million Americans lived in households that struggled to access enough food due to a lack of resources last year. Note that “the data likely understate food insecurity because they don’t include homeless individuals or families.” New America Foundation pointed out that hunger was “mitigated by the responsiveness of our social safety net – most notably the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/food stamps).” Mitigated, but maybe ...
Please dont get me wrong, I don't mind people being wealthy; I mind the wealthy 'PISSING' on the poor. I.e., 1)Reagan BLAMED his victims - blamed the poor for being poor, even with Pres Clinton's 'Welfare-to-Work' where people getting welfare are working at Walmart, McDonalds, etc., making minimum wage, which guarantees welfare, Food Stamps & Medicaid. 2) Republican-Teabagger Congress give companies BILLION$ to send jobs OVERSEAS, I.e. Steve Jobs sent 453,000 jobs OVERSEAS, Romney makes $60,000 a DAY sending jobs OVERSEAS (See his 47% video), etc., 3) Republican-Teabagger Congress continue to give 'corporate welfare' to OIL companies, BP, GE, NASCAR, etc., then ... 4) ... then Republican-Teabagger Congress BLAME/DEMONIZE the poor that they take jobs AWAY from! 5) BTW, Food Stamps also go to veterans, military families, disabled, seniors and Foster Children. 6) The mainly OIL-Rich Republican-Teabagger Congress now want to GUT Food Stamps and ObamaCareS.!!!

Even BEFORE the EVIL Republicans in the US House voted to cut another $40 Billion from Food Stamps there was already a Scheduled CUT in Food Stamps of $20 Billion starting in NOV 2013 which will DECREASE Benefits by 13% for people now on Food Stamps. According to the data I can Find approx. 19% of the Population of West Virginia uses the SNAP program for FOOD. So I guess we have approx 190,000 West Virginia Citizens needing Food Assistance from SNAP ( based upon a I million Population). So Mr David McKinley when you voted to CUT another $40 Billion from Food Stamps yesterday did you take into account that you would be Denying Tens of Thousands of West Virginia VOTERS of the Benefits they so drastically Need ? By the way West Virginia ranks 9th in the country in Food Stamp ( SNAP) percentage of Population use. NINTH !

I wonder if there's a single journalist in the whole DC Press Corps that's ever been on Food Stamps.
MSN is such a liberal based media agency it's sick. Below is sentance out of an article I started to read and then stopped. Right after reading this.The article is about which state has the most people on Food Stamps. "Just to be clear, that's the same Mississippi that still sports the Confederate Stars and Bars in its state flag and elected firmly Republican Phil Bryant as its governor and Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker as its senators. The state now has roughly 663,000 people on food stamps, a population larger than that of Boston, Seattle, Denver or Washington, D.C." Ok, so it's the fact that they elected a republican governor? The republican govenor is the reason they have the most people on food stamps and had they elected a Democratic governor they wouldn't be? Is this what they are trying to say here? I guess if that is the case, If Illinois and California had elected Republican governors wouldn't be totally broke and the most in debt, along with the highest tax rates in the U.S.A.

Random (and brilliant, if I might add) idea: if it were required for all Congresswomen/men and Senators to themselves & their families, live exclusively on Federal family welfare and/or veteran benefits, for 14-30 days. Food Stamps, WIC, Welfare payments, public education, public transportation, supplement groceries from charity food banks, etc.
Rants here seem popular these days so here is my own. Before you point fingers and complain about all the welfare clients, maybe you should take a good look in the mirror. Did you receive any pell grants or subsidized student loans while going to college? This is just a different form of welfare. Student loans have to be repaid, but the interest that would normally accrue while you are going to school is generously being paid by tax payers. Grants don't have to be repaid so they qualify in my eyes as straight welfare checks. I've known many people who do not use the financial aid they receive solely for education. Some have used it to purchase cars or allow them to live in a much nicer place than their income would have normally allowed. If this describes you, then maybe you need to rethink your stance on welfare. I do not begrudge giving Food Stamps to anyone who qualifies for them. If you qualify, you need them. America gives hundreds of millions of dollars away in food to foreign countries ev ...

If you're on Food Stamps and Public Assistance...why is your baby wearing Nike tennis shoes and name brand clothes?

Farm Bill Vote, Food Stamps, Food Stamps Farm Bill, House Farm Bill, Snap, Politics News . WASHINGTON — The House rejected a five-year, half-trillion-dollar Farm Bill Thursday that would have cut $2 billion annually from food stamps and let states impose broad new work requirements on those who receive them. Those cuts weren't deep enough for many Republicans who objected to the cost of the nearly $80 billion-a-year food stamp program, which has doubled in the past five years. The vote was 234-195 against the bill, with 62 Republicans voting against it. The bill also suffered from lack of Democratic support necessary for the traditionally bipartisan Farm Bill to pass. Only 24 Democrats voted in favor of the legislation after many said the food stamp cuts could remove as many as 2 million needy recipients from the rolls. The addition of the optional state work requirements by Republican amendment just before final passage turned away many remaining Democratic votes. Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., a ...
I want to say, for the record, Food Stamps are not for poor people...huh?..that's right moron...food stamps are based on the ratio between how much you earn, and how much you pay out in bills...I was told that I am the reason the world economy is in the toilet with my entitlement mentality...regardless of the fact that I served in the army and the air force, worked everyday of my life, filed married withhold at a higher single rate so the government could use my money interest free all year long...but because I can't use my hands or my back means I should only be a burden to my children...who's got the pie chart that show's how much we spend on food stamps vs the military budget?...I need to shut this person up...{:})~
Many, if not most, people vote for Democrats for just one reason: They don't want to see Republicans in control of government. But, if we compare Minnesota where Democrats have a super majority and Wisconsin where Republicans have a super majority and we go down the line and compare issue for issue we find Minnesotans are fairing no better than Wisconsinites. And, when we compare what Democrats do on issues like military spending and cuts to Food Stamps to what Republicans in Congress are doing we find their actions pretty much identical And when we compare Obama to Bush we find on every single issue, Obama has followed through with Bush's thoroughly reactionary agenda of wars abroad paid for with austerity measures here at home. So, what is it that provides us with anything any better with Democratic super majorities than with Republican super majorities since the same people who vote Democratic do so to keep Republicans out yet these same people applaud Obama when he seeks bi-partisan "unity" and "compr ...
According to the USDA the top three food groups purchased using SNAP (Food Stamps) are as follows: 1) Dessert Like items like snack cakes and doughnuts 2) Pre-prepared foods like Lunchables and Hamburger Helper 3) Sugary drinks like Pop, Capri Sun, and Kool-Aide Maybe instead of cutting the budget for SNAP, we should eliminate junk food from being purchased with our tax dollars. That way we can still help as many as need it and not contribute to their health issues.
Fan comment: "The children shouldn't have to suffer but I can't feed everyone in America and neither can you." The financial reality: Food Stamps: $80 billion The Iraq War: $1.7 trillion Do you honestly think the tax payers can afford the Iraq war but not to feed each other?
Jeff Friedman Of course, of all those "takers" on Food Stamps, 76% of the families that benefit from the SNAP Program include children, the disabled, or the elderly. One million veterans' families have used food stamps at one time or another as they tried to get readjusted to home life after spending years risking their lives and limbs for their country. Plus the majority of food stamp recipients use this "entitlement" to get them through brief, unusually difficult periods in their lives. The last thing they want to do is remain on this dreadfully inadequate program for an extended period of time. Finally, a substantial percentage of food stamp recipients are forced into needing nutritional help to survive because O.J. *** refuses to allow a vote on a bill that would increase the minimum wage to a woefully inadequate $9.00 an hour.

Drug Testing for Food Stamps? There are going to be several Farm Bills up for a vote in the House of Representatives this week. They deal with different items, but one really stands out. It seems that a Republican from NC, Richard Hudson, wants to require drug testing for anyone who needs food stamps. Makes you wonder what is next on their agenda!
I hope this makes your Monday a happy one!! Those of us who work here in the US are sending over $2 Billion a year to Puerto Rico for Food Stamps!! We have folks right here in my county who are hurting but let's take care of Puerto Ricans first. I'm telling you, the Government is our own worst enemy.
A friend who had to quit her job because of chemo, a co-worker years back, who's wife was laid-off from boeing and had trouble keeping up with the bills, my sister, had 2 strokes in one year, a 28 year old single mother of 2 who is taking 15 credits at the UW while working 35 hours a week at Target...These are some people I have known that have turned to the SNAP program, or Food Stamps. This program is under threat to the tune of 20 billion, that means that 210,000 kids loose school lunches next year...For example, Walmart wages are so low that many of its workers rely on food stamps and other government aid programs to fulfill their basic needs, a reality that cost taxpayers up to as much as $900,000 a year at just one Walmart Supercenter. When low wages leave Walmart workers unable to afford the necessities of life, taxpayers pick up the tab. When corprate america is *** bent on paying people $10.50 an hour, they will have to accesss public assistance, food stamps, Section 8 housing, and state-funded . ...
God I hate making big life decisions... As some people already know, I'm having to move out of my parent's house. At first, the only option I had was to move in temporarily with my friend Jeff, who lives all the way out in Shamokin PA (the other end of the state almost) but a couple days ago I found an alternative, but the alternative isn't great. Basically it would be nadyman/maintainance person at a non-profit pet shelter down in Yukon PA. It comes with a private cottage to live in, all utilities paid, and a small stipend. Originally the ad I applied to said the stipend would be $150 a month, but talking to the lady who runs it, she said she could go as high as $200. Now, $200 a month isn't really a great salary or stipend, I could probably barely survive on that, if I am careful about my shopping. And I suppose I might also qualify for Food Stamps. If I could get some additional income from food stamps, then I'd probably do ok, not great, but ok. But there is another issue, I don't have transportation, ...

Before the House of Representatives votes to cut Food Stamps next week, it might be worth reflecting on this passage to see how it might apply to us today. _ If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs. Be careful not to harbor this wicked thought: "The seventh year, the year for canceling debts, is near," so that you do not show ill will toward your needy brother and give him nothing. He may then appeal to the LORD against you, and you will be found guilty of sin. Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
The new $940 BILLION dollar "FARM" bill currently in Congress: 80% of the bill funds Food Stamps... Taxes Christmas trees... Is 56% largers than the last Farm Bill...$604B increases to $940B... Helps to "market" (read: advertise) sheeps and goats... And purchases $1M worth of weather radios.

OK,,, Here Goes. I post often about the increases in Food Stamps and Social Security Disability. First I will state that I have no problem with helping the Needy, but I do have a problem with SUPPORTING THE LAZY. Personally I know families with 2 or more Generations of family members that have NEVER worked (And these people are Caucasions , so don't even try the "RACE CARD" on this one !) ADD, ADHD, SLEEP APNEA, and a multitude of "EXCUSES" for not working are becoming more prevalent. But its not just about the "WELFARE and Social Security SYSTEMS" anymore. As the once Greatest Manufacturing Country in the world, I fault the Government for not only Allowing, but also Encouraging OUR JOBS to Foreign Countries. NAFTA, CAFTA, AND THE ASIAN FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS are a LARGE part of the problem. Those Agreements guaranteed OUR JOBS going somewhere else. Then Coupled with the Foreign Currency Manipulation we cannot begin to compete with a "dime to a dollar" level of costs and the SLAVE LABOR in the world market ...

We need to Replace Wal-Mart with the "People's Mart" a Worker Owned & Operated Co-op with Fair Labor products! WE must Educate people that the Lower Prices are Subsidized/paid for by All Of Us the Tax Payers! Do a massive TV and Radio Education Campaign to explain that by Paying Slave Wages WalMart pushes their actual Costs onto the Tax Payers by way of Food Stamps and other public assistance to its work force! THAT IS THEFT! and that is what we must all join together to educate the buying public about. Here's the Educational Campaign: SHOP AT THE PEOPLES-MART AND CREATE JOBS or SHOP AT WALMART AND RAISE YOUR TAXES AND DESTROY JOBS. Action Item: Call Any Network you watch that advertises Wal-Mart (*MSNBC) and tell them they are helping to destroy American Jobs and communities by promoting this irresponsible Corporation on their Network and you will stop watching their programs and join efforts to boycott their other sponsors. They must live by the values their shows promote and that includes not being sp ...
We have numerous Conservative members on this page who are currently on public assistance for one reason or another. As a matter of fact two of my administrators are on public assistance.

Just had an interesting convo with DH and son. (Hmmm, that sounds like a business...) For many years, we had Medicaid, Food Stamps, not housing, but other kinds of assistance. When the ACA is in full effect, with DH working in his field, we'll be making over the 94K limit to get subsidies. In fact, we'll be subsidizing a lot of others...including many who said to us, "It's not my problem if you don't have Health Care." It's not my problem if you're poor/don't have food/ etc. It's not my problem. The gathering call of those who think everyone, regardless of circumstances, should simply take care of themselves. Period. I heard it from 20-year olds connected to The Eagle Forum. I heard it everywhere, for years. I still hear it, all the time from far too many people...especially the really Conservative, hyper-religious folk. Can we complain and scream when we're subsidizing them?
My conservative friends always applaud my opinion when I talk about how those on welfare should undergo drug testing and prove they are doing their best to find work however, when I bring up cases of the next type of freeloader, they turn on me and call me a liberal. In 2010, when GE was being lambasted for outsourcing jobs overseas, they made $14.2 Billion in profits, paid not one dime in federal tax and actually received $3.2 Billion in tax credits, not to mention receiving $16.1 Billion from the Federal Reserve just 2 years earlier during the financial crisis. Obama had promised to put an end to large CEO packages yet, one old GE employee saw his compensation package jump from $9.89 Million in 2009 to $21.4 Million in 2010. Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman said; " Obama has a philosophy that says, the poor must accept big cuts in Medicaid and Food Stamps; the middle class must accept big cuts in Medicare (actually the dismantling of the whole program); and corporations and the rich must accep ...
An example of bi-partisan politics. These Democratic United States Senators joined with every single Republican and voted not to restore 4.1 billion dollars in cuts to Food Stamps; why? Baucus, Bennet, Cardin, Carper, *** Donnelly, Durbin, Feinstein, Franken, Hagan, Harkin, Heinrich, Heitkamp, Johnson, Kaine, Klobuchar, Landrieu, Manchin, McCaskill, Mikulski, Nelson, Pryor, Rockefeller, Shaheen, Stabenow, Tester, Mark Udall and Warner. Minnesota Democrats are racking up quite a record when it comes to working class issues... Both of our Senators are on this list: Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. The one thing we can count on both Klobuchar and Franken to do is support funding drone warfare and funding the Israeli killing machine. People are always telling me how progressive this or that Democrat in Congress is based on some vote they cast. However, there isn't one single Democratic member of the U.S. House or U.S. Senate that we can count on to consistently vote for human needs over militarism and war--- ...
Good grief. Just reading the morning Houston Chronicle Opinion Section. Liberal Loon Paul Krugam is claiming that the way to jump-start the economy is to expand the Food Stamp Program! I thought that is what exactly Obama did with his job killing policies. I guess what "Nutter" Paul Krugman would like to do is ask the Conservative to get out of the way so The Obamanistas will be free to destroy the rest of the private sector and we can all go on Obama Care and collect Food Stamps. Yes, the perfect recipe for a thriving economy.

Just heard on the news (FoxNews would be the ONLY news outlet to report this), a woman who lives in Florida, who swam across the Rio Grande, has lived in the U.S. for over 20 years, receives over $700 dollars in welfare each month for 20 years, receives Medicaid, WIC, Food Stamps, receives free Healthcare, and now has Lawyers who know her case, are organizing "Getters" who "advertise" in Latin America that these benefits are available in the U.S. to "help" people, and the "Getters" are now paid through some "Straw Organization" to hire others, to get here in the U.S. and how to apply for all these benefits on the computer.(The computer paid for by the taxpaying public! When asked WHO is providing money to hire the "advertisers," the Lawyers reply like they are reading off a script."Private Funding." (George Soros, maybe?) If this doesn't make your blood BOIL, nothing can. It's no wonder we are sinking and as Judge Robert Bork titled his book, "Slouching to Gomorrah."

I just caught a story on ABC News, but I don't think I heard it right and can't find a print edition of what I heard to check the facts. In general the story focused on a lady, who is 50 years old that came into the US illegally by crossing the Rio Grande. She's complaining because she only has $9 and change left for food for the rest of the month because her food stamps ran out. Here illegally, gets food stamps for her and 9 OTHER DEPENDENTS, plus $700 a month from Social Security??? FREE Medical care and prescriptions and I believe they said housing. She's 50 and gets all that. When I start my Social Security in August, after close to 45 years of working, I won't be getting a heck of a lot more than she is... Is she disabled? How many years did she work and pay in to deserve $700 a month? Or are they handing it to her at age 50??? Food Stamps? I just checked and it looks like SS recipients are eligible for food stamps under certain circumstances. Medical help won't start for 3 years after I turn 6 ...

People wonder why I hate WAL-MART. I have shopped there a few times in the past, but for almost a year now I have not set foot into any of their stores. They cheat their workers...

FACT: 1.5 million military vets (and their dependents) are reliant on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAPS), aka "Food Stamps." On October 31, 2013 they will see their monthly allotment reduced if Republicans in Congress have their way. Again, Republican agendas are kicking those who have served our country to the curb. Our service members offer their lives to defend the greatest country in the world, yet they are coming home to less and less employment opportunities coupled with less and less appreciation and support from the government that they served.

I have ask this question before. I know that LIBERALS led this nation through 2 World Wars and out of the Great Depression. They integrated the military, formed the Veterans Administration and the other aspects of the Social Safety Net. Passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and passed Clean Air and Clean Water initiatives. Then most recently the LIBERALS ended the War Based on Lies and pulled the nation back from the brink of the 2nd Greater Depression that was facing us. And I ask, through all of that, knowing that Eisenhower built the Interstate Highway System over the objections of his own party, WHAT THE *** HAVE REPUBLICANS DONE FOR THE WORKING PEOPLE OF THE United States? Giving Tax Breaks to Billionaires and Corporations so they can deposit money in off shore tax free bank accounts DOES NOT help people who work for a living.

John Matarese has a big development in the controversy over Food Stamps for pet food
I almost had Zena enrolled in a program to help her! Phone interview application was "almost" complete; until they asked me my address! Unfortunately I do not live in a county which is considered within their area or in the category of the less fortunate? What else can you call a grandmother raising a parent-less teenager? She not only has to deal with her Papa passing away(which she considered as her daddy), also her mommy! So, if I reside in their area, Zena & I qualify! Qualifying residential guidelines should not be considered for such programs. It should be the needs of the children! Now, if I was receiving Medi-Cal or Food Stamps for her, I would immediately qualify! That's just wrong! Hey, ,maybe if I moved back to Watts or Lynwood and had a Cadillac or a Benz in my driveway they would consider me "acceptable"! Time to put the "sharpie" eyebrows back on!
This echo's (and proves) what I have been saying for a long time. Welfare, Food Stamps and Unemployment Compensation (for 99 weeks) are the modern day chains of Slavery. Led by Johnson, the Democrats that were losing power in the South, found a new way to maintain control of the Black and now Hispanic population...give them table scraps so they are not hungry enough to hunt IE: Give them just enough to take away their desire to make themselves better persons...take away their drive and spirit. This led to the decay of our school systems...and then our neighborhoods. Like a wise man once said "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime."
If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by ***

But, without knowing it, this picture & words are, very Racist. It's what's called "Subliminal Suggestion" or "Neuro-programming". How? (1) Look at the picture. It shows an "Inner City" neighborhood, that's in decay. Many "Inner City" neighborhoods in decay, in major cities. are African American. Or, at least, that's what we're lead to believe. (2) It refers to "Air Jordans", "Welfare Checks", "Food Stamps", etc. HHM? Put this with the "Decayed Inner City" neighborhood. they can't be talking about poor white Appalachians, Native Americans on Reservations, etc. Folks, this is "Subliminal Racism"!!

Sometimes in life I have to wonder if the government will ever decide that what is best for America supersedes the typical party line. When will both sides realize that paying off the debt and balancing the federal budget is in the best interest of the American People? As long as the government keeps handing out money to people who don't want to make strides to improve themselves, we as Americans will keep going down this road to be more and more like Greece. It really makes me mad when I think of all the people who are on Welfare and Food Stamps that make more money that hard working individuals that are trying to improve themselves and make the world a better place to live. We are heading down the wrong path to a "what can I get for doing nothing society" and away from being self reliant. It make me even more frustrated to think about people who aren't willing to do their part to make America better. Also, why is it that the people defending the country end up taking the brunt of the budget cuts? ...

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Experts say one in five people on the Mississippi Gulf Coast is having to worry about not having enough food to eat. The Bay Area Food Bank put on a conference to help its partners, including pantries, churches and soup kitchens learn what resources are available to the people they serve. The day was all about helping the helpers. Food is a necessity of life. So when a hungry person asks for help buying groceries, the last thing any social agency wants to say is sorry, there is nothing available for you. "It gets discouraging," said Jean Cooper of the Crossroad Distribution Center in Pearl River County. "The main clientele is our seniors in my area and a lot of those people. I do not apply for the USDA or other things because the majority of our clientele would only be a few dollars over and they would disqualify." The conference was to update non-profit agencies on what programs their clients might qualify for. Attendees learned that when applying for Food Stamps or SNAP, senior citiz ...
This is in response to the many well-thought out comments from this morning. We view the overpopulation of dogs and cats as being a public health issue that largely stems from, and affects, low-income communities. These homes are usually unable to afford the full cost of a spay at a full service clinic; hopefully targeted programs bridge that gap. However, that does not imply that private clinics overcharge any more than all grocery stores overcharge for food because some people require Food Stamps in order to pay for groceries. It means that appropriately scaled, compassionate programs are needed to help people get pets altered before there is an accidental litter. We also support mandatory compliance for use of these programs. Wherever such program can occur, we support it. We do not feel it is incumbent on individual practice owners to subsidize what is indeed a public issue. In addition to access to low-income spay/neuter services, we need changes in public policy regarding intact release of shelte .. ...

I can't wait to see how the Sequester is handled.

Hey, When you put down Food Stamps, you're puttin' down Barack Hussein Obama!
Ok, here it goes. In a country where 6 out of ten people are considered obese, we increased the distribution of Food Stamps exponentially. With jobs available most everywhere except the corporate world, we have taught a vast number of people how to stay home and collect a paycheck. While North Korea is detonating nucleur bombs to see if they can strike the US and Iran is ramping up their nucleur program to wipe out Israel, the Middleeast is in meltdown and Al Queda is reenergizing in North Africa.

Food Stamps for Pets in the USA: This is insanity. The sad part is that a bunch of Americans ACTUALLY want the Govt to provide food stamps for cats and dogs:
In the article, Eric Cantor insists that the American voters don't reject Republican draconian policies that are geared to benefit the ultra-wealthy - Cantor thinks the American voters agree with Republicans: * that ultra-wealthy people should get workers to work overtime with no extra pay and * that the ultra-wealthy should be able to hide their income overseas to avoid paying taxes that would otherwise pay for things like our debt on two wars and * that Americans do want cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaide, Food Stamps, education, infrastructure spending ... all so the ultra-wealthy can pay anywhere from 0%-14% income tax rate. Eric Cantor believes that all the Republicans need to do is market those policies, that would roll America back to the era of the failed "Gilded Age" in a prettier box.
Prepper's: I am having a little WTH moment. Food Stamps for Pets, sorry but if you can not afford to feed them, because it is not your priority to do so, do not expect others to do it for you! This is a private agency who is having these people actually use them at an online store that charges about 75% more for the food than anywhere else online.They can get help for six months. They are also not eliminating the possibility of seeking government funding in the future for this as well. I love my dog and my cat, but where I buy their food is my concern as an owner of a pet, it is called budgeting and being a responsible pet owner. I also think it is my rewsponsibily as a pet owner to provide for them. I do not agree with any agency who seeks to go non profit and then in the same article speaks of the possibility of getting government funding. It is not right. Not in my mind. What do you think?

Let me see if I understand this - we've got Republican politicians in Washington saying we need to do away with or cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Public Housing and most all social safety nets - and - they also want to do away with minimum wage which could see a high percentage of American workers being paid $3-$4 per hour or less! So how do these dim witted, *** fool politicians expect people to live? Republican politicians in Washington should be forced to live off minimum wage all the time they "serve" and then lets see how loud the greedy pigs will squeal.
I wanna put this out here. I liberal friend of mine said this. They have a point. Can we raise the minimum wage to a dollar amount that reduces the cost of entitlements? I was brought pause by what my friend said. You say? What my friend said: "You hate the "takers", but when people don't make enough money to pay rent and buy food they have to ask for help, which makes them "takers". Which is it going to be? Food Stamps or a Living Wage? This really, really confuses me."
Determine Income The next step in preparing a personal spending plan is to determine your monthly income and expenses. Income is money that comes to you from: -Wages -Self-employment income -Public assistance, which might include Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Food Stamps -Child support or alimony -Interest and dividends -Social Security -Other sources (e.g., tips) There are two categories of income: gross income and net income. What do you think is the difference between gross and net income? Gross income is your total income without deductions. Net income is gross income minus deductions, such as Social Security and other taxes. Who knows why so much money is taken out of your paycheck for Social Security? Social Security is a potentially valuable insurance plan. On some pay stubs, it is called FICA, which stands for Federal Insurance Contribution Act. Social Security income includes: -Retirement benefits paid every month to eligible retired workers, as early as age 62 -Disability ben ...
If every US citizen that received Food Stamps left the country and formed their own, it would be the 26th largest country in the world. 47,692,896 people, just under the total population of South Korea and just ahead of the total population of Spain. Oh and it costs US taxpayers almost $6 BILLION a year...
not worried about Veterans,Wounded Warriors, he's worried about Food Stamps,EBT Cards,New Public Housing and new IPhones!
And I have so much more to say on the subject. The ignorance, straw-man hate, and lack of compassion is disturbing. Guess what? Many of those "lazy leeches" are children, elderly, and disabled. And most of those not in those categories, who are able-bodied and working age, are required to work by Food Stamps or Temporary Cash Assistance/Temporary Aid for Needy Families. Those who aren't working are either going to school, volunteering, job training, or searching for a job for 30 hours per week (requirements vary state by state) and some are doing more than one. Every four weeks of not having a job, you have to switch to either job training or volunteering or both. Others who bypass this activity requirement, may have their reasons as well, which might be unknown to even close friends, long time classmates, and neighbors, such as mental illness (which can be hid very well by some), health problems (and many of these are in a sense 'invisible'), or a learning disability (and this might not be information th ...
Let us get rid of BIG GOVERNMENT...what would you get rid of ...e.g., Obamacare? Food Stamps? Welfare? Dept. of Education? etc. Let us slim down the Federal Government...start naming names?
Inbox Regarding the two post concerning WIC, I am disheartened to read on these two post the large number of people who vehemently defend their decision to depend on Entitlement programs such as WIC and Food Stamps because they do not (refuse to) generate enough income to support their family's day to day needs. I am not "Perfect" or "Fortunate" to be rich. I AM fortunate enough to realize that it is MY responsibility to take care of MY family and I will do WHATEVER it takes to care for their needs. I live an average middle income life. I work at least 70 hours every week to provide for my family and will gladly work more to create more income if the need is there. WIC or any Entitlement program is not funded by the MAGICAL MONEY FAIRIES. It is 100% funded by your fellow citizen's tax dollars. Someone else is forced to work 70+ hours a week to support you and others who refuse to support themselves. WIC is NOT intended to support your family when you "come up a little short" in meeting your family financi ...
At this very moment I am soo thankful to have a "smart phone", FB, and to have escaped from my apt and my own "Twilight Zone" and the continuous, seemingly never-ending "alarm clock" without a snooze button! Whew... why the phone now? Well been sitting here at AZ DES patiently waiting for hours for my turn to "interview" for Food Stamps. What irony. A pharmacist AGAIN having to apply for such and any assistance--IF I "qualify". Maybe one can see why I get so angry at the "justice" system, so often. Shocking. Beyond words. But at this very moment, I'm very grateful for the above, and very, VERY patient and loving, caring, resilient family and dear friends.GB you all!
if I have to take a drug test to get a job I have no problem taking one to get Food Stamps or Unemployment or any other type of compensation that the tax's payer pay for. Contact your elected officials and tell them that Drug test should be mandatory for all
Have you ever known anyone to use Food Stamps to purchase the food that would be used to cater a Wedding, Funeral or any other type of life changing event?
The Training of the Poor in America... Last night it suddenly dawned on me how the poor people in our land have been being trained, same as you'd train a dog. 1. WIC - how many parents are trading their babies blood for a jug of milk? 2. HUD - set in line to be assigned a house they want you to live in. 3. Food Stamps - set in line, eat only IF they give you the food. That's just 3 examples. I could list tons more but I think this is enough to give you the idea. The training has been subtle, and parents have been tricked into training their children to be good little obedient "citizens". How many parents have taken their children with them to these government offices and taught them to wait for a handout. The kids grow up seeing this and they learn to live the same way. The training has been thorough, it has been long, it has been gentle so the poor not only except it, they desire it. It reminds me of the scene on war of the worlds when all the people walked to the door in the mountain. They were ...
Ah, asked the clerk why it was so busy. She said 1st of the month. Checks and Food Stamps. Note to self, don't stop here at the beginning of the month!
There are 5 to 8 people for every ONE available job in America. So you can sit there on your high horse and blame the bad economy on the mother of 3 whose job at Wal Mart pays so little that she still needs Food Stamps for her kids. You can blame every unemployed person in America for that matter... But even if every one of those so-called "lazy people" (as you call them) were lucky enough to get jobs tomorrow, there would STILL be 5 to 8 people for every available job. And of those available jobs, more and more of them are becoming minimum wage, low-paying jobs. Just something to think about the next time you puff out your chest and forget how lucky you are to have the job you have.
Next time you shop at Walmart, just remember that those BILLIONS that the Walton kids get go to support guys like this. (And their workers get P/T Shifts so they can qualify for Medicare, Medicaid and Food Stamps.) THINK BEFORE YOU SHOP. Walmart Hurts Women.
Can I pay everybody in Food Stamps?. Cause see, the way my bank acct is set up. Lol
Obama's 5 Year Economic Destruction Plan Completed a Year Early! Something Funny Happened On The Road To Obama's Recovery. Nothing! And nobody is laughing any longer! Great News! The latest economic data was just released showing negative economic growth and that the economy is shrinking! We congratulate the President and celebrate the completion of his 5 year plan for economic destruction a year early! Job well done! Yes, the economy is contracting (signaling a double dip recession) The Jobless Numbers continue to rise, unemployment went back up to 7.9% (real number is 16%) 8.5 million people have dropped out of the work force altogether, Record numbers still on Food Stamps, Disability and Welfare, More people are now moving back in with their parents, and Gas is going back up! Meanwhile Obama ends his fictitious Job Council because "We're In a Recovery!" Pssst, No We're NOT, Stupid! But let's forget all of that and celebrate that the stock market is doing great! Hooray! Doesn't it seem like yesterday wh ...

Food Stamps are a form of public assistance designed to help disabled people or families falling below the poverty line. Unfortunately, some individuals commit Food Stamp fraud to receive assistance or get an increase in their current allotment. If you have knowledge of someone abusing the Food Stam...
The average SNAP (Food Stamps) benefit per person per day is $3.97. $3.97 will buy 1/2 gallon of milk & maybe a carton of eggs in my city (depending on the store, in some places it won’t even do that), so I am ever fascinated by the myth of welfare queens. Who the *** is living like royalty on that kind of money?
If your on Welfare/ Food Stamps you should not be allowed to buy whatever you want at the grocery store. I think they should bring back govt issued food !

1964: Food Stamps, initially 350,000 people, now 42 million In 2010 came news that 41.8 million Americans were on food stamps and the White House was predicting that the number would grow to 43 million in 2011. It did: by February 2011, 44.2 million Americans, one in seven, were on food stamps. In Joe Washingtongton, D.C., more than a fifth of the population was receiving food stamps. To chart America's decline, the explosion in the food stamp program is a good place to begin. A harbinger of the Great Society, the Food Stamp Act was signed into law in 1964 by LBJ. Initially, $75 million was appropriated for 350,000 individuals in forty counties and three cities. However, no one was starving in the 1960s.

Shame on First Energy! The Federal Government cut grants to the states for payments to the Utility companies Home Energy Assistance Program. To help H.E.A.P. get more money for those companies, Ohio cut $23.00 a month from Food Stamps for poor people over the last two years. But First Enegry spends $100 million to put it's name on a football stadium. Makes no sense to me!
Child Support. Housing. Food Stamps. WIC. ASSISTANCE!!! I'm willing to bet my left nut that if the government eliminated these PERKS for having kids, WOMEN would make better decisions on the *** they allow to OOZE in them then. RANT
Lets just be frank shall we. It's not about just gun control, the il-legals in this country now at 12 Million, un-employment still at over 7%, the middle class being squeezed out,Obama Care being shoved down our throats, 4 dead Americans in Libya, Fast and Furious, Food Hood killer still has not been on trial. Almost 50 %of people in the USA receive Food Stamps. *** Marriage, Aboration Clinics being funded by our government Our Military expenses being cut, soliders now have to pay more in taxes,It's about all of this ,and We the people Must Demand Our so called leaders- Senators and Congressman, Governors push to Impeach Obama before there is Nothing left of the USA, I have just had enough, What about you?
Amazingly well put! Thanks Mike! Mike Boettger: "the only truly happy people today are those on Food Stamps, welfare benefits, and quickly falling on a downward spiral to get free stuff for themselves. Nobody that wants to work hard to propel themselves upward and forward see today as the key to their future." A truly sad day for America...
Hit "Like" if you think Obama's image should be imprinted on Food Stamps as a way to commemorate this day and thank his supporters.
SSI is an entitlement/social insurance. Food Stamps & welfare (AFDC) haven't been since 1996. Also this:
GOOD MORNING ALL! Hey could any of you come up with a solution for me? I have been looking for everyday dishes for my new kitchen since the dishes are on display… I have shopped in all of the major stores and nothing to my liking… I went on line and found the perfect solution only to find out the only place that I can purchases them is at Walmart… which I refuse to contribute a penny to their profits…WHY? 1. Walmart prices are so low that the ma’s and pa’s stores cannot compete so they are run out of business. 2. Walmart are able to keep their low prices by enslaving their employees by minimizing their wages, no benefits and no incentives… 3. Employees who are forced to work for unlivable wages qualify for Food Stamps and Medicaid… so if you are saving a dime by shopping at Walmart it will be made up 10 times on your taxes, which are some people’s pet peeves these days!! 4. The customer service is depressing and lacks any enthusiasm on customer’s assistance and the stores that I ...
How do I 'unsubscribe' to Being Liberal? Mind you, I am, and shall always be, liberal. *** A Liberal. But posts embellished along the lines of 'Racist GOP Ad Touts Increase in Number of Americans on Food Stamps' or 'John Boehner Stomps on Kittens for Fun' have me fighting the desire to run screaming to the nearest John Birch Society meeting!
WOW. You have to have a job in SC to get Food Stamps now? Now the world makes a little more sense.

I am really, really, Really sick of the Right Wing crap out there! The complaining about Food Stamps, so called Welfare, which they probably mean Medicaid. For your information, there are people out there too poor to buy enough food for themselves and their children!!! There are elderly people, who rely on Medicaid to be able to be in Nursing homes!!! We are a wealthy Nation, but you would never know it, the way the far Right talks, but they at the same time call themselves, Christians! I guess they would be against Jesus, since He said feed the hungry, give to the poor, and if a man does not have a coat give him yours! I don't know how you talk about your blessings on one hand and then carp about having a system in our government that looks to the needs of the less fortunate! Are your minds so small that you can not look at those just scraping by and say "For the grace of God, there go I"?
