You're a fkn stooge without a clue once again.
It is administered by individual states based on federal guidelines.

The USDA works through state partners to investigate recipient fraud and hold those accountable.

The federal government is the overseer of the SNAP program.

If the federal government can't oversee the more than 900,000 backed up claims of veterans, how can the same federal government oversee fraud and abuse in the SNAP program?

North Korea escalated its provocative rhetoric on Thursday warning that its military is authorized to wage "cutting-edge smaller, lighter and diversified" nuclear strikes to protect against the United States.

"The moment of explosion is approaching fast. No one can say a war will break out in Korea or not and whether it will break out today or tomorrow," read the statement of an unnamed military spokesman.

...Any comments?

Get back to us when your kid is murdered, you have to have car insurance, homeowners insurance so this is a great idea. You have guns?
Mass murderers could care less about stricter gun control.

Maybe if my daughter was a law-abiding gun owner, she'd be able to protect herself.

When will you and your side ever get this?

Tenzing proffered this awhile back, I think it's a great idea. Let the insurance industry control the guns. If Nancy Lanza knew she'd have to insure her weapons, with that kid in the house, her premiums would be through the roof; if she realized that anyone murdered by her guns would cost her entire estate and the insurance companies liability; perhaps 26 people would be alive.
"silly"
In your mind forcing gun owners to purchase liability insurance is a good idea, guess what? It is not going to happen. No way.
You want to get in to ifs? If LBJ had not ordered 1/2 million Americans to Nam maybe 50,000 plus folks would not have died.

Start jumping the societal expectations hoops kiddo.

Some of us "olde-timers" already have our time in-plenty well enough-and then some.

And let me give you a tip-trolling on a lameazz computer thread all day, merely trying to "marginalize" others, will get you nowhere in the real world.

You see what the POTUS did today? Made an effort- of contribution BACK to society.

Pay attention, tat just what the U.S. drained-dry back bone needs-more GIVE, and far less taking, especially from those who do nothing but take.

I applaud his leadership by example of conscientiouness in doing so, no matter the labelduhm label.

Now, were YOU saying anything worthwhile?

Common Beliefs of Today's Liberal

You are against the War on Terror, but are only too happy to make millions of dollars by making movies about it.

You preach about the evils of Capitalism from the comfort of your weekend hillside estate.

You cry about the evils of "profiteering corporations", but still demand your weekly paycheck.

You believe "rich people" are evil, but are willing to over-look the fact that Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Michael Moore, and Al Franken are "rich", as well.

You scream and shout when innocent civilians are accidentally caught in the crossfire, but remain silent when terrorists kill them on purpose.

You believe that civilians caught in the crossfire of terrorists attacking American troops died because of America and not because of the actions of the terrorists that actually killed them.

You believe O.J. Simpson is actually looking for the "real killers".

You claim a higher moral ground in opposing the death penalty but see abortion as an expression of Women's Rights as guaranteed in the Constitution.

You believe that with regards to the 9/11 attack, America had it comming and deserved what happened.

You believe American troops are "war criminals", but a thug who killed somebody in cold blood is just a "victim of society".

You believe you can give a dollar to somebody without first having to take it from somebody else.

You want to ban and outlaw legal gun ownership but you want to be allowed to have armed guards at your beckon call.

You believe the name of God or Jesus should be banned and censored, except when spoken in profanity.

You believe it was wrong for Bush to use images of 9/11 in political ads, but saw nothing wrong with Kerry using flag-draped caskets in his ads.

You refuse to allow a child to carry a Bible to school, but demand that schools make special provisions to accommodate a non-Christian's religious beliefs.

You whine about religious leaders and their involvement in politics, but only when the Reverend's name is Robertson... not Jackson or Sharpton.

You support Judges who interpret what they "think" the Constitution means instead of what it actually says.

You believe the meaning and definition of the Constitution should change based on your own feelings or opinions.

You believe that burning the American Flag is a form of Free Speech and any law that prevents burning the American Flag is an assault on your right to express yourself.

You constantly cry about defense spending, but scream when bases in your areas are closed.

They would've called Bin Laden's family from the breakfast they were attending with Daddy Bush, & put them on a G5 & had military jets escort then out of the country, right! No, here's the biggie! They would've invaded a country that had nothing to do with nothing, giving those responsible time to scurry all across the middle east & African continent, right! You people are stupid, I mean literally!
Knowing the long time friendship of the Bush's & Bin Laden's, the fact that they were in joint business ventures up until 9/11, the fact they were together when the"attacks" happened, & the fact that Bush hurried up & flew Bin Laden's family out of the US. If that don't stink to high heaven, then you lost 1 of you 5 senses. There is no way possible a democrat could've f cked up worst than that idiot at best, & accomplice at the least. You think the devil is still a snake in the garden, stupid! Look in the mirror!
FOR YEARS I have agreed with the (oft times which has been more a more Rep leaning idealogy) precept of to hell with middle east oil. we should become more self reliant.
But noooooooooo, the jackboots on the other side just have not been able to absorb THAT concept as of yet.
