Foodstamps Surge By Most In One Year To New All Time Record

While there had been speculation that the BLS may delay the release of its October nonfarm payroll number until after the election, it turned out there was no reason to worry. Perhaps this is because the number, while at stall speed, was not quite as horrible as some had expected (even if the change in average hourly earnings did tumble to new all time lows) and so boosted Obama's reelection chances. There was, however, another closely tracked number which perhaps is far more indicative of the economic "growth" in the past 4 years, which certainly had a delayed release. The number of course is that showing how many Americans are on foodstamps, and usually is released at the end of the month, or the first day or two of the next month. This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August foodstamp data. One ...

Is that a modern version Mike?

Good point, made in your own inimical way.

At age 38, I'm not so sure I'll live long enough to see the collapse of America. America is so big that it will take a long time for it to fianlly fall. The old saying is that Rome wasn't built in a day, but it didn't fall in a day either. If we do completely collapse, and I don't believe that is spouting hyperbole or being over dramatic in the least, then the whole world is going to feel it.

Some of those who read and study the prophetic books point out that America is never directly refered to as a part of world leadership in the end times. I don't want to open up the can of worms that starts us looking at different views on prophecy, but I think that's interesting.

As I said in a recent post, it's funny how in the days leading up to the election almost every conservative pundit called this election the most important of our lifetimes. As an American I believed that. I don't think the conversation gets to be changed to "We'll get 'em in 2016." I think we as a nation are facing a fundemental change in our culture and attitudes. The fact that almost half of the country did not want this is beside the point. We do have this now--the only question is how will we deal with it? Praying, returning to the Bible, and teaching your own family the right way is a good place to star

History repeats itself because humanity remains fallen. Every great empire went through stages of freedom from obscurity or oppression to strength and prosperity on to luxury, complacency, apathy, and finally to dependency. After this comes ruin. If nearly fifty percent of people are on government subsistence and the producers are oppressively taxed, then collapse is inevitable. Pray God would wake His church and this country to repentance.

Good point; WIC has similar insidious incentives. BTW, some time ago we found that baby formulæ rebated under WIC were more expensive than others, & were large corporate brands with the chemical witch's brew jpw loves to denounce. But we haven't checked recently.

Here's the perfect website for the freeloader or the curious. It apparently covers state as well as federal handouts: www.benefits.gov/benefits/browse-by-category

"Foodstamps" are not used anymore; it is a SNAP card that looks like any other credit/debit card. (SNAP=Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
Supermarkets support the program because it helps keep them in business. Farmers support the program to help sell their products in the supermarkets. Even "farmer's markets" are learning how to accept the SNAP cards, where normally cash only is used.

As always my comments are not about the people who really need help. It's a bad thing to be working and still need to use food stamps. I just don't like my money going to people who know how to work the system. These are the people who can work but won't.

This beings to mind a question: Who determines what a “need“ is? The recipient? That's like asking a barber if one needs a haircut. Yet many simply assume this thorny, subjective issue is a triviality, including Thomas Acquinas, the “Angelic Doctors” of the RCC.

And BTW, the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is actively encouraging more participation, even among the employed, promising Federal grants to defray publicity expenses. How's that for insanity?

We have more takers than makers in America, and that's why we've re-elected Santa Claus. If you give people money based on need rather than ability, then what is the incentive to work? Especially if the money that you worked for is taken from you and given to people who sit around all day holding out for management positions.

As always my comments are not about the people who really need help. It's a bad thing to be working and still need to use food stamps. I just don't like my money going to people who know how to work the system. These are the people who can work but won't.
