While spending on the food stamp program has increased 100 percent under President Barack Obama, the government continues to push more Americans to enroll in the welfare program. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has embraced entire promotional campaigns designed to encourage eligible Americans to participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps. A pamphlet currently posted at the USDA website encourages local SNAP offices to throw parties as one way to get potentially eligible seniors to enroll in the program. “Throw a Great Party. Host social events where people mix and mingle,”

Best reason to stop paying taxes.

You’re POOR when you pay for your own food and bills.

Taxes should not be rendered to a gubmint that URGES sloth in the citizenry.

I have a room for rent on Craigslist. So this is the type of response I get.

I am a student at ISU, who will be graduating in May, interested in your post. It would be me and My 1 year old son. I have full financial aid so I’ll be paying my lease out 6 months at a time. I get a plethora of food stamps, and don’t mind sharing groceries. Please let me know if you think we’d be a match, and any security deposit details or etc you think I’d need to know.

Grab the cash. Take the groceries in the form of canned and dry goods. Stash them.

The crash is coming. Might as well have Uncle Sugar pay for your prep.

I wish they’d just give out boxes of MREs. I’d take some. I don’t want them all the time but they aren’t bad occasionally and can be prepared anywhere. Really convenient on road trips.

SNAP parties like Tupperware parties.

Talk about trying to stick smiley faces on ugly problems.

In the age of Obama, never use “sensible” and “American” in the same sentence.

63.000.000 NONSENSICLE Americans Voted for Obama. Free Republic is an island my FRiend. We are all alone.

They are a little late to the party. People have been feeding their party goers with food stamps for years!
