Thank you, SG!
Comal County, TX?
Nah, I ain’t going to their website.
65,125 people are in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in your county.
About 18 percent of people in your county are in the program.
That proportion has grown 170 percent since 2000.
The participants received $96,505,000 in benefits.
That’s $1,663 per person per year.
Or $139 per person per month.
ZERO. Nobody I know.
19% That proportion has grown 225 percent since 2000
I work/live in a blue state/county/city so mine didn’t surprise me one iota as this sh*thole city is full of Buttcrack odumbo voters.
Slate has my county at 27 percent, and my math, using 2012 population figures puts it at 28 percent, and they are all standing in line at Walmart.
Does not recognize Washington D.C..
My pleasure. What are you doing for your birthday? (I’m hijacking this thread. Ya can’t take me anywhere nice.)
22% here in Western MA. I would have thought it was higher.
6% sounds good to me. (Better than mine.)
This weekend is The One Year Anniversary!
The Bride and I are making it an annual thing, to return to the same beach where we were married and honeymooned.
Birthday plans, not sure yet, but I’ll enjoy just the same...
Allegheny County, PA: 157,000 + or 12% of the population, a 91% increase.
Somehow, I think the total may be more.
14%...up 500% since 2000
Is there a link to the site so we don’t have to give Salon hits?
There’s foodstamp recipients who fall into the category of people who need help, trough no fault of their own.
Then there’s the black high rollers, obama’s people, the usually 400-pound and larger lardballs.
Guess which ones will be cut?
I’m pretty sure the union guy up on the corner who weaseled is way onto disability is getting SNAP. Other than that, nobody I know.
Doesn’t recognize 20017, either. Hmmmm.
