Oops: Obama Administration Calls Unborn Baby a Child

The truth is often like a big beach ball being held under water. You can only hold it down for so long before it comes bursting out. Even with the most ardent abortion supporters who have to be extremely careful with how they label and define what a person is inside the womb and out, the truth still finds a way to leak out. Maybe instead of the beach ball analogy, we can think of a leaky dam. Everyone knows the Obama Administration’s official stance on abortion. They say that women have an Read more […]

Recovery: 1 in 4 Americans on Federal Food Assistance

Somehow, when 25% of the American population is relying on some kind of federal food assistance, that’s a good thing. All that says to me is that we have a long way to go to experience a true economic recovery. But liberals keep telling us that we are in recovery now, and that this is the greatest recovery since FDR “rescued” the U.S. from the Great Depression. If that’s the case, then why do so many people depend on federal food assistance programs? CNS News reported: In a press release Read more […]

Fail: St. Louis Bomb Plot Thwarted Because of Maxed-Out EBT Card

A couple of guys with ties to the Black Panther Party engaged in a bomb plot. They apparently bought what they believed was a pipe bomb from someone who turned out to be an undercover cop. Who knows what they would have done without this undercover cop. Maybe nothing would have happened. But nevertheless, unbeknownst to them, they were a part of a sting operation. They had plans to kill the St. Louis County prosecutor as well as the Ferguson Police Chief. They were also planning to bring down Read more […]

New Mexico Food Stamps Recipients May Have To Look For Work

Shock and outrage over conditions being attached to food stamps. “People who are given whatever they want soon develop a sense of entitlement and rapidly lose their sense of proportion.” – Sarah Churchwell According to the Associated Press, a lawsuit is being filed by a group of New Mexico food stamp recipients because forthcoming regulations would require some beneficiaries of the program, such as childless adults, to work, or seek work in order to be eligible for food stamps. This has caused Read more […]

People on Food Stamps Outnumber Women Working Full-Time Jobs

Thanks to the evaporation of American employment options,  the devaluation of the American dollar, and the expansion of government largesse, American citizens are even more dependent on the civil government than ever. In fact, statistics from 2011 and 2012 indicate that there are more people on food stamps than there are women working full-time jobs. This is the first instance on record where this has been the case in back-to-back years. But I find even the framing of the statistic troubling. Read more […]

Welfare Recipient Buys Lobster with Food Stamps & Refuses $80,000 a Year Job Offer

Welfare is a snare that traps people into being lazy and expecting every hard working American to support them.  Yes, I know that some people are physically unable to work or can’t find a job in today’s Obama economy, but there are millions of welfare recipients that are just flat out lazy and don’t want to work as long as we feed, clothe and house them at our expense. Case in point is Jason Greenslate.  He first appeared on Fox News purchasing lobster with his food stamps.  Recently, Read more […]

Pelosi: Unemployment Benefits Are “One Of The Best Ways To Grow The Economy”

The White House just got through claiming that food stamps were a great way to “boost the economy.” Perhaps if they wanted to boost the economy even more and lift us out of this economic downturn, they would give us all food stamps. Now, Nancy Pelosi is speaking out against letting the federal unemployment compensation program expire at the end of this year. She said that extending these jobless benefits is “one of the best ways to grow the economy”: “Economists agree that unemployment Read more […]

JP Morgan Getting Rich From Food Stamps

When Barack Obama took office in January 2009, 31.9 million Americans were receiving food stamps.  Currently, there are 47.7 million Americans receiving food stamps.  That’s an increase of 15.8 million people, 49.5% in less than 5 years.  It is the largest increase for any president in US history. In comparison, the average monthly increase in the number of people receiving food stamps under President Bush was 304,000 per month.  Under Obama, the monthly average reached a peak of over 475,000 Read more […]

Huffpo Complains About Sequester-Cut Flu Shots While 1 In 5 Americans Struggles To Eat

Every single fall I see the sign for flu shots—priced at less than a tank of gas. Every single autumn I sneer at the sign and choose to remain uninjected. If I respond to the sign at all, I do so by increasing my intake of vitamin C and vitamin D—a cheaper and more effective method of prevention. Since I rarely get the flu at all, I don’t see any reason to get the shot. If you like to get your flu shot, that is fine. This is a free country. But this non-story about anther cut due to the Read more […]

Ohio Food Stamp “Workfare”—What Is The Problem?

Beginning in 2014, Ohio residents without children will have to do work if they want to get food stamps. The Columbus Dispatch reports: “To qualify for benefits, able-bodied adults without children will be required to spend at least 20 hours a week working, training for a job, volunteering or performing a similar type of activity unless they live in one of 16 counties exempt because of high unemployment. The requirements begin next month; however, those failing to meet them would not lose benefits Read more […]

Conservatives Offer Solutions While Liberals Drool

Charles Darwin said: “A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” Life is something that often feels wasted, no matter how we fill it. We use our time to the fullest; packing in activity after activity, so that when we are on our death beds, we can say: “Wow, what a full life I had.” But the wasting of life isn’t in how much we do, but in how we do what we do. The same goes for money. The government is a bloated hog, gorging on taxpayer cash; and with Democrats Read more […]

Food Stamp Profits Are A State Secret

The most important strategy to protect government corruption is keeping the details hidden. There is no way to hide the fact or corruption, but as long as the nation’s lords of corruption can keep the details hidden, they will always have some level of plausible deniability. They will almost always be able to escape real consequences from accountability if they can keep specifics out of public awareness. Thus, the AllGov website reported yesterday: “Unlike those in charge of other federal Read more […]
