<quoted text> Food stamp use is exploding … you know the numbers. During the last four years, 75 people were added to the food stamp roles for every person who got a private sector job.
Employers are having a problem finding low-skilled workers to take jobs at $8 to $12 an hour. Why? Because these people do the math and figure out that they can sit on their asses pulling down their endless supply of unemployment checks and not have to work a lick for their money.
This is by leftist design, bankrupt the government, mob rule follows, nationwide martial law declared & constitution no longer applies.
The most recent data on SNAP participation were released and showed that 47,710,324 people were enrolled in the program in September, an increase of 607,559 from August.

The new numbers mean that an estimated one in 6.5 people in America were on food stamps in September.

In the 1970s, one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps.

I can't imagine what will happen to those who turn to the government to solve all their problems. We all need to realize that government has failed us in many ways and we need to be as self sufficient as possible. This world is changing fast and it's not going to be pretty if you are constantly feeding at the government trough.
