Default Fox News - The Great Food Stamp Binge

This is a short version of the program that appeared on Fox this weekend.

Really feeling like times have changed.

We are living in scary times. When our fellow citizens lose their self respect.....all bets are off. People are becoming cattle.

From bondage to spiritual faith
From spiritual faith to great courage
From courage to liberty
From liberty to abundance
From abundance to complacency
From complacency to apathy
From apathy to dependence
From dependence back into bondage.

The FDA spent 3 billion making the soap opera to coax these folks on to the program.

This has pretty much gone under the radar up until Fox did this piece.

greatest growth in the last 6 years is government jobs and subsidized benefits. no one wants to work, they make more staying home. my housekeepers 20 yr old unemployed unmarried kid just had a baby and everything was paid for and when she goes to the emergency room 3x a week when the kid has sniffles it's all paid for. as well as all of the child formula and diapers and anything else needed.

why work??

Tell your housekeeper that you need to cut their salary in half to cover the high taxes you pay to support low life scum like her daughter.

Nothing changing things going forward. That voter base is growing exponentially.

The food and free phones are intended to keep them from scaling the walls and gates of the rest of America...keep them out of our houses. Its unsustainable but it's a fact

Those in our great nation who think they are poor and deserving Govt help have no idea what poor actually is.

I had a lady in front of me at the checkout at a local grocery store a year or two ago....full bling, wearing nice clothes and chatting on a cell phone while being rung up. She pays with food stamps. WTH???

Stossel did a great program on this:

Rush was recently crucified for saying the new standard of poverty meant having and driving a car and watching a big screen tv with a fridge full of food.

Sat with a successful stock broker a few weeks ago and I asked him where it ended. He said civil war is unavoidable but like any investment the million dollar answer is when......the average American has no clue where we are headed, ignorance is bliss....

France went this way without civil unrest and we as a country imo are on track to end up in the same situation.
Since the republicans have no shot at winning the White House in my lifetime again the folks with skin in the game will not risk being sued or going to the poke so the 2 classes left will deviate from a 50/50 trend .

I watched the show with Brett Sunday night. That surfer dude in CA made my blood boil...if I were to ever see him, I'd slap that goofy look off his skinny ass in a second.
The gentleman who said that the program actually contributes to keeping those on it in poverty is spot-on.
Another example of our president's desire to keep us all dependent on big government.
