Skip to comments.USDA moves to end questionable food stamps ads after criticism
Posted on 07/13/2012 3:12:40 PM PDT by RitaOK
The Spanish-language radio ads composed a 10-part miniseries called "Hope Park." In it, the characters were shown persistently trying to convince a character named "Diana" to go on food stamps -- known these days as SNAP, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program -- even though her husband works and she doesn't think she needs it.
"I don't need help from anyone," Diana says in Episode 4. "My husband makes enough to take care of us."
But her friends are persistent, and by Episode 10 Diana is enrolled and singing the program's praises.

Only because they got caught !
Don't worry Dianna, the regime is axing Hispanics [in Spanish] to sign up fer yer unneeded food stamps.
Encouraging people to go on food stamps and gutting welfare reform to increase the rolls....while the country is practically bankrupt. It looks liked Cloward-Piven to me. Maybe Glenn Beck was dead on years ago when he brought this up.
The goal of the whole War on Poverty was to keep the Democrat rolls up; it started decades ago (and was criticized back then as such).
I always wonder what it is the true believers think will happen, if they achieve the Cloward-Piven goal? Do they honestly think some kind of utopia will emerge? What do they really want?
USDA czar Tom Vilsack was the first to line up for an opportunity to lick little Oboys toes. He was the ex_Iowa gov and in need of employment. With adequate prayer he will soon be able to count himself on the rolls of his SNAP cash from the sky handouts. Good luck Tommy.
Reason 11,286 there is no hope, at all, for this country. The Government has become the enemy of the People and the destructor of souls.
You know, if you’re forcing your fellow citizens to put bread on your table, you’re a freaking loser, plain and simple.
Just go ahead and tattoo a big fat L on your forehead, you disgusting mooch.

States try to increase food stamp benefits for their residents (Gaming the system)
States seeking a larger share of the nearly $80 billion a year the federal government hands out for food stamps have resorted to several practices that some lawmakers say are abuses of the system:
Fourteen states and the District of Columbia make use of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. Paying people as little as $1 a year for heating assistance, even if they dont have a heating bill, automatically qualifies them for greater food stamp benefits. Critics say that can result in households getting up to $100 extra a month in food stamps....
They’re playing radio ads using two black women in Georgia.
Their “friend” looks sooooo damned good because she’s got food stamps and she exercises.
It STINKS of Cloward/Piven strategy offal.
Who the hell is paying for these ads? The taxpayers?
The Bible speaks of locusts; I call them moochers and looters.
