Food Stamp Nation (vanity)

Posted on 06/20/2012 10:34:48 AM PDT by hecht

Has anyone else noticed the food stamp ads on the radio. I guess Obama need smote parasites on the dole at taxpayer expense. Aren't you glad that you work. I have no issue with a safety net for the truly needy, but to condone parasitical behavior is obscene.


TOPICS: Politics
KEYWORDS: obama; parasites

Here’s a link to audio clips of all of them. I was so annoyed, I looked it up on the web, and lo and behold!

They’ve been running the “Oh, SNAP!” card commercials on my local station for a couple of months. They are spending million$ (billion?) on running these spots everywhere!

I’ll admit it. I just went on FS last week. But, I just became unemployed after 30 years of continuous employment. I have a wife and 2 kids to support and I’m bustin my ass to secure new employment. (resume writing, headhunters, interviews,etc.). As soon as I find a new job, I’ll be off of FS, hopefully never to return.

IMO, I should represent what the system was built for, i.e. TEMPORARY assistance. But the abuse of the system is so widespread that I notice some of the looks I get when I whip out the FS debit card. I’m in So. Cal. so it’s no big deal but I still get the look.

There is nothing wrong with temporary assistance. You did nothing wrong.

What annoys me is Obama wants to make this a trend, a way of life, aka redistribution of wealth.

Big difference. Hang in there. ;-)

So, when we all get sick and tired of working, lose our jobs because we are so dejected at the prospect of our first black post-racial President acting like a pimp who won the lottery, and we just check out, give up and join the leeches, who in the hells pays then?

They are called 401Ks, 403Bs, IRAs, Roth IRAs, stock market accounts, savings account - any form of relatively liquid assets. The only source of money not tied to Obama’s constituents: blacks, Unions, 99% liberals, illegals, et cetera....

Boy, the Hollywood liberals like Barbara, Sara JP, et al are really gonna be pissed when they lose theirs....

I have no issue with a safety net for the truly needy

No offense, but you should have an issue with it.

The Constitution does not have a provision for government charity. The whole concept of government charity is maybe 100 years old. It has gone disastrously wrong.

The safety net is why we have a deficit.
Minimum wage is why we have unemployment.
Food stamps are why some people decide not to work.

I have a big issue with a safety net for the truly needy.
Churches?
Benevolent societies?
Neighbors?
These are the traditional alternatives for when the truly needy need help. The government has killed them, because the government is manufacturing slaves.

The safety net is a BAD thing.

"I guess Obama need smote parasites on the dole at taxpayer expense."

There will be many more smote parasites after the bond collapse and the rest of the default process to come. They will be smitten by layoffs and foreclosures. Good riddance.

"I have no issue with a safety net for the truly needy, but to condone parasitical behavior is obscene."

Agreed. Fire all of the public school teachers, inspectors, planners, social workers, non-profit suckers of revenues, environmentalists and many other kinds of parasites.

The term “Food Stamps” is ancient history. People on welfare are now given debit cards.

When I was a checker at a major grocery chain, I chatted with the shoppers, as I ran their food over the scanner.

One guy came up with T-Bone steaks, Porterhouse steaks, filet mignon, rib eyes, etc. All the biggest and best cuts of meat.

I kiddingly said, “Wow! Looks like you’re going to have a big barbeque!” He replied, “Hell, no, lady! This is all for muh dawgs! Ya cain’t buy dawg food with food stamps - so I get ‘em people stuff!”

And he whipped out FOOD STAMPS to pay for it all. (Over $200)

They actually have a recruiting budget. The bureaucrats are incentivized to go out and expand the rolls. I have heard their radio ads, seen signs on college campuses, and flyers left at churches, all trying to recruit new parasites.

It is my understanding.. which could be wrong.. Federal and states give ummmmm money to local governments to sign up folks for benefits. I am not sure of the scope. I do know they get matching for “education” regarding the SNAP program. So, every sign up or sign in probably qualifies them for that. I am sure Mickey Mouse and Juan Valdez are frequent entries.

Good. You're honest. Besides, if you're helping to drain the debt regime at this point in the default process, you're part of the solution (default, government shutdown followed by resumption of production and small government). Meet those who are not so honest while shutting down our private sector (reason for so many hard working folks having to go on food stamps).

Here are the bipartisan, socialist culprits. See what they're stealing out of the economy while producing nothing of good use? They distract with their sponsored propaganda while continuing their genocide.

Are you a member of the political class?
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/08/are_you_a_member_of_the_politi.html

Stop buying anything that you don't really need. Become more self-sufficient each month. There are always options and ways. Learn to produce something useful as a hobby for now. Either get with it, or be unprepared.

Take care of yourself. Get stronger. There will be options and good surprises. Don't get down on yourself. Remember that you're right. Never give up. You'll be needed for the rebuilding process.

It's going to be rough. But we'll prevail, after the political robber class is deposed by the weight of its own lies, big spending and radical, officious thefts. Get yourself out of the way, if you can, before they start fighting with each other (rest of us already being fleeced).

Yeah, but I’m *paying* for his raw meat.

Can I get food stamps for him?

$200 buys a *lot* of ground round and beef hearts.
