Food stamps, trivia or travesty?

PostBy: lsayre On: Wed May 29, 2013 7:09 pm

The number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Can this be correct?

Yep, ain't it great & it's only Democrats & it just started the day Obama took office. :doh: Isn't life simple when you have someone to blame for everything & no one else has ever taken responsibility for any ills in the system. I'm guessing that every state may be a bit different but my wife is on SSD & it was a long drawn out process with several different docs, both hers & the state or fed whichever it was then you have to have a lawyer that gets a cut (Congress takes care of it's own) then with her anyway the judge made his decision right there, the attorney never had to say anything. If it's legit I see nothing wrong but I know of many that are on it & I can't figure out how. Heck some are even registered as republicans, how the hell did that happen? :o

I guess you would know all about that then Jpete but in all seriousness they had job training when I lost my job in 84 get that date 1984, it's nothing new except back then they only trained for skills that there were no jobs for. Most guys figured to just move & get a job rather than stay & train & still have no job but training in two crafts instead of one. As I said everything old is new again except then he screwed many areas & one could move to find employment now the economy & everything else was screwed everywhere & you blame Obama for not fixing all the mistakes in 6 days. :shock:

First, how does job training equal food stamps?

And second, YOU are the ONLY one that mentioned Obama. No one even said anything about any politician or political party at all.

You must really know how bad things are F-ed up if you have to jump to Barrys defense even when there has been no attack.

Regardless of what other presidents have done, under obama's watch, food stamp dependence has SKYROCKETED. Nearly ONE IN SEVEN AMERICANS ARE ON IT!! :shock:

Not only that, but the costs of the program have skyrocketed too. :|

Jpete, once again you read what you want, in the process of deduction since it was implied that mostly democrats get foodstamps & Obama is a Democratic Pres. I then figured that it was an attack on Dems. sorry if I misunderstood but all I mentioned is that there are at least a couple Republicans that get them, welfare & yes job training & loonngg periods of U.C. (which I don't agree with. Do you possibly think that the worst economy since the great depression has anything to do with the food stamp need? Coupled with the ways around what seems to be with most every Gov. program (which neither party stops) has anything to do with the amount of foodstamps given out & there again there is a lot of difference between states. It is a problem with no easy solution but it has to be addressed from both sides instead of complained about & fingers pointed everytime the lead changes, for someone that has used the heck out of it & complained about it all along you sure have short term selective memory loss IMO there if that's want you wanted to bait me into there it is. I have never been on food stamps but have collected U.C. & now get S.S., all Gov. programs some are paid into as Ins. others are not but they are all meant to (from the start anyhow) be a help over tough times & not a way of life.

The way I read this things have improved since the sixties. I realize its not food stamps, but its an entitlement just the same

What am I missing? :? The record number of food stamp users is a result of the mess the current admin inherited in 2008, that is a certainty. Not saying that Bushy was responsible for that, mostly banking regs I feel, however he did start the costliest war in american history. Has the number of foodstamp recipients started to fall recently? Is the dow at all time highs? Dont get me wrong, I feel welfare /foodstamp/ section 8 housing needs a serious gut and gill job. There are so many scumbags on assistance that are only there cause "they can get away with it" and they are there for generations. My solution would go something like this:

to receive benefits )

1-you enroll in an appropriate level education program and maintain c or better average untill you have an associates degree or trade license .

2- you report to the local highway dept where you shovel rocks from one side of the parking lot to the other and back again until you decide option one is better

3- if your disabled mentally or physically then you enter that system,which from above article, seems to be working fine

4- cant fit into 1 , 2 , or 3? your on your own :annoyed:


just one moonbats opinion.........

No problems from me with something like that Waldo & no better time in history to start implementing it than when the economy is suffering, we simply can no longer afford to keep this crap going as it stands.

I know three people that say the are in the EBT (food stamp) program two are single mothers in there early 20s and drug addicts they both brag about getting $600 + a month and sell most of it, the other person is a single man in his 60s and he says he gets $16 a month. If what I have been told is true then the program needs to be worked on.

Right you are Carl, don't know if it's still true but in Pa. I knew junkies that got welfare & stamps for a IMO self induced illness & my B-in-L that has MS can't get anything because he has SS but they don't consider the cost of Meds so it's either buy Meds or eat so he skips on Meds where he can. I don't much care for him but the system is totally screwed up. :(

You got all that out of this?

The number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Maybe I'm not the one reading what they want to read?
