Because why have a nice, sunny morning? We probably cant afford those anymore, anyhow.
Primed by the financial meltdown; took off like a rocket in January 2009, and is now reaching for the stars. Over 44 million on the rolls (somewhere around 14.3% of the population), which is about 14 million or so more than when this administration took office. The graph is sufficiently grim and depressing on its own to make further commentary largely unnecessary, but I will add one sardonic comment. If current conditions are what the White House considers to be our economic recovery, then let me be clear: Youre Doing It Wrong

Don’t let the food stamps statistic fool you. The reason more people are on food stamps is because of expanded eligibility. This is creeping socialism, pure and simple. You don’t need to be starving to get food stamps anymore.
In 1933, the country was less socialistic, so a deep economic breakdown really hurt. Today, an economic breakdown of similar magnitude is harder to see. But I think it's here.
BO’s/BS’s Cloward-Piven strategy is proceeding according to plan.
The Democrats believe that this will support and stimulate the economy more that anything the Free Market can muster.
Can you imagine the stupidity?
The rising food prices means their food stamps won’t be adequate. Then what? Obama, the Wannabe Dictator, will have to come up with more borrowing.
The tax return that I get from my unemployment will pay for my families food and shelter.
Either that or musle the food producers into giving away food. Another opportunity to move away from a market economy toward Socialism.
...and he’s payin’ my rent and car payment...lol
Because people are taught that it's okay to live on other peoples hard earned labor and that those hard workers are just evil anyway.
Maybe these parasites need to send Present Stroker a “Thank You” note.
..must be part of that “hope and change” propaganda promised.... =.=
Today, 75% of the country is Urban and barely have enough food to last a week stored in their homes. They are deeply dependent on their jobs, the Government and the local Government to provide all their needs for them. If even one of these providers goes away, there is nothing left but anarchy and mayhem.
We are in dangerous times where we have never been before. There is nothing to compare it to either.
Bingo. Bama has his reelection numbers in place.
That, and several Million new Hispanic voters that will be at the polls in 2012.
It is mostly minority handouts for votes. I would have no problem with giving actual basic food to the needy but this is ridiculous. Bring back the soup lines. Hell the Beggars on the streets are making more than social security people.
Meanwhile, the Kenyan bass turd has one billion dollars in his “campaign chest” to purchase the Oval Office for another four years. Somebody needs to be in jail. ONE BILLION DOLLARS! Our system is definitely broken.
Europe in the 30’s.
JP Morgan already has! They are making Billions off the Food-stamp/Credit Card scam.
And the Republiwhig morons are going after social security and medicare instead of Obamacare and the EPA. How stupid are they?
