Record Number of Households on Food Stamps–1 out of Every 5

Joe Schoffstall, CNS News, April 25, 2013

The latest available data from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) shows that a record number 23 million households in the United States are now on food stamps.

The most recent Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP) statistics of the number of households receiving food stamps shows that 23,087,886 households participated in January 2013–an increase of 889,154 families from January 2012 when the number of households totaled 22,188,732.

The most recent statistics from the United States Census Bureau– from December 2012– puts the number of households in the United States at 115,310,000. {snip}

{snip} A record number 47,692,896 Americans are now enrolled in the program and the cost of food stamp fraud has more than doubled in just three years.

    Only 20%? Just wait until the wets get amnesty and bring in their worthless relatives. That will break the system for certain.

    • RisingReich

      Let’s hope so. I’m tired of working to support bombers, rag-heads, bantus, stubbies and the various other programs designed to inspire hatred of White people everywhere like me.

      Can’t happen fast enough.

    Gee, I though the economy was in a recovery.

    • bigone4u

      The economy is in recovery–in Obama’s drug-addled mind.

    How can anyone think this is not a problem? A *fifth* of our country is not feeding itself.

    • Jefferson

      Remember that diversity is our strength. One of the benefits of diversity is seeing an increase in poverty. God bless those “Natural Republicans” from south of the border. We would be nothing without their presence. We would be nothing without their “rich culture”.

    • sbuffalonative

      A problem that can only get worse.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Yes, when the EBT cards and obama phones are cut off. When the government can no longer print money and has squeezed Whites dry.

        Expect riots, violent riots, aimed at Whites. Just as planned.

        Bon

        • dd121

          In my opinion, you sir, have nailed it. “Just as planned”. I think Obama knows exactly what he’s doing and its long-term consequences.

    • KenelmDigby

      Yes. And the politicians are striving might and main to import *even more* paupers into the USA.

      Why do blacks dress up like WHITES and go to the prom? The prom is a White thing. I always laugh when i see blacks dress like this. Oh but I’m sure back in Egypt they had proms on floating platforms in the sky and everyone wore clothes made out of the finest silk. The White man done stoled it all.

      • Alexandra

        They don’t exactly dress up like whites…I’ve seen ghetto prom pictures.
        They have a ghettoized version of prom wear.

        • White Mom in WDC

          Why does anyone give a damn about the prom? It is stupid. It was stupid. Big kids playing dress up

          • dogbone

            I think the biggest reason is to make money off the kids parents. When I was in high school back in the 1980s, it costs around $300 per person to go to the prom. That was for dinner, tux/dress, dinner, and other stuff.

      • Puggg

        Maybe because it’s the closest thing most of them will ever have to a formal wedding ceremony?

      • Secret Tribunal

        Have you seen all the Diversity blacks lurking around college campus with book bags? They are enrolled college students who will default on their student loans so that you can use your White privilege to “do the right thing” and pay for it through higher taxes and savings destroying inflation.

        FedGov + Money + Blacks = You Pay, Sucka!

        • Concerned Citizen

          Student loans? Try Pell Grants.

  • NorthernWind

    Could it be any clearer that the system is going down? Those who believe that there is a recovery are deluded. Welfare states are a horrible thing to begin with but throw in diversity and they become hellholes.

    Enjoy the decline!

    • sbuffalonative

      It’s all part of the plan to scrap the old system for a new system:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloward%E2%80%93Piven_strategy

      “…overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        The funny part is, a guaranteed income system would end up being worse for blacks than the current welfare system. Under the current system, they’re given food stamps, which can only be spent on food (unless they sell the food stamps themselves).

        But if the government just gave all of them a guaranteed income in cash, they’d spend it all on basketball shoes, strippers, and crack and end up going hungry much more often than they do today.

        • Jefferson

          Them going hungry is a good thing. That would mean the obesity rate in the Black community would drastically decrease.

          Don’t we want more of our fellow Americans to not be obese ? Obesity is after all a financial drain in this country when it comes to health care.

  • Regular Poster

    I’m on it because my husband left for another woman. But he’s talking a bit about reconciliation and I believe he’ll be back, once he figures out the grass isn’t greener.
    (Yes, I will take him back. I still love him and our child needs both parents.)

    • NorthernWind

      When he returns make sure to keep him on a short leash! Good luck to you and your child.

      • Regular Poster

        Thinking about getting a job but my child is disabled and I can’t really trust anyone to watch him…unless my mother-in-law can babysit. *sigh*
        I feel so guilty being on it…I swipe the card and try to hide the fact that it is a food stamp card. Kinda sucks, ya know? But hey, I’d paid into the system when I was working. Just getting my money back.
        I believe he’ll be back. He told me don’t get a job until we reconcile and figure out where we’re going to live. Meanwhile I’m in limbo.
        *headdesk*

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          If you live in California, you only have to swipe this beautiful looking card with a picture of the Golden State’s coastline on it:

          Here, it’s call California Advantage or California Fresh — no ripping out of food coupons like in the bad old days. Not only that, there are So many that use EBT cards here that no one bats an eye.

          All the best to you and good luck.

        • QuinnTheEskimo9

          You need to be able to support yourself and your child without depending on the government or a man who has already shown you and your child disrespect and will again in the future. That makes you a slave waiting around for scraps.
          If your child is disabled, he should qualify for all kinds of government bennies not available to the rest of us. Take advantage of them.
          You need to get out and get a job or improve your job skills otherwise you’ll be just one more government slave.

          Harsh? Perhaps. Truth? Undoubtedly.

            He gets SSI. And child support. My husband filed for divorce but he’s not sure he wants to go through with it (I don’t think he does).
            Just hanging in there over here. Thinking about looking for work where my mother-in-law lives. Where I live there are not a lot of jobs.
            But I think that’s planned. Get rid of jobs, make the sheeple dependent on Uncle Sam. If it weren’t for that I’d be better off. Thankfully I get rental assistance, and I don’t think I’ve seen any blacks in the apartment complex I live in–so far. Bunch of hillbillies here, but hey, that beats “da hood.”
            Hoping my husband straightens out soon. I’ll still have to get a job, because that homewrecker he’s shacked up with has gotten him further into debt. *sigh*

    • IstvanIN

      Remember, trick me once shame on you, trick me twice, shame on me. Don’t let him make home a revolving door.

      That being said, public assistance programs should be for folks in a pinch, like yourself, and not for a lifetime of dependence. Of course if we didn’t export so many job while importing so many foreigners, both legal and illegal, Americans wouldn’t need so much assistance.

    Too bad it isn’t 4 out of 5.

    If it were, we would be at the the end of this mad rush to complete societal decay and collapse.

    We’re getting there, but it’s going to take a while longer.

  • bigone4u

    I was reading an article last night written by a conservative college student. All her middle class white pals at school are on food stamps, so she applied for them as an experiment. She got her card a few weeks later although she lacked evidence of eligibility, good for $200 a month, which out of principle she did not activate. Her essay concluded with a heartfelt plea for people to reject government dependency.

    Whites are jumping on the food stamp bandwagon too, as our moral compass spins out of control. The rot in our economic system in which productive whites have been thrown under the bus by vile liberal and conservative politicians means the system will one day implode or explode into hyperinflation, or deflation, riots, starvation, whatever. Either way, the end game will not be pretty and the parasites are going to learn some hard lessons, as will the politicians.

    • White Mom in WDC

      Wanna implode the system? Hide your assets, then get on the good stamp bandwagon

    • Puggg

      There are some “conservative” Republican pols who like this growth in the food stamp program. Notice they’re mostly from farm districts and states.

    • Nathanwartooth

      Probably everyone knows someone who is abusing the system. Whether it’s food stamps or disability while working, abuse is rampant.

      A relative of mine just got diagnosed with cancer. His first bill? 56,000. Good thing he doesn’t work. Oh and they are setting him up with disability. His cancer is going to cost the taxpayers 100s of thousands of dollars.

      If you get cancer, you had better hope you aren’t a middle class worker with health insurance. You will get slammed.

      There is really something wrong with this system.

  • SmithandSmith

    This needs to be broken down by race. How many non-whites, how many White People and how many “whites” with non-white children are on it?

    Then, let’s find out why they’re on it. Did the non-whites have one child and then get on it and continue to have more children while on it? Same question applies to “white” people and then let’s examine why White People are on it.

    Did the White People lose their job due to outsourcing or diversity (laid off and then mysteriously, the company needed “help” again but not from their original White Employee)? Are they on it because wages are depressed and stagnant and they can no longer afford to feed their Children due to the low wages on top of all the exorbitant prices for all the third world made junk and the tasteless and sometimes, disease ridden (salmonella) food that’s being picked, processed and packed by Third World Aliens and all the rate increases on everything else (gas, utilities, etc.)?

    All Welfare needs to go as it’s illegal anyway and White Folk will help other White Folk and the non-whites can help other non-whites.

    • Jefferson

      If America was still a 90 percent White nation, I doubt very much that the percentage of Americans on food stamps would be as high as 20 percent.

      • SmithandSmith

        I never had a problem with charity (welfare), it’s this illegal charity that I have a problem with. No one here at Amren can honestly say that this is legal by Founding Fathers’ Standards.

        I prefer to be allowed My Freedoms like being able to decide for myself who I want to give my money to for food, rent, education/business loans, WIC, foreign aide, etc. I know our Founding Fathers’ would have a heart attack if they knew what this Government was doing. And the Wars. If it ain’t about us, we’re not supposed to be sacrificing American Blood and Money fighting on the behalf of other countries and on and on I could go but I’ll spare ya and save my political concerns for my other website. And the Supreme Court and their illegal rulings like allowing illegal aliens to steal identities and God, it just does not end.

        As my Husband says, they’re spinning so fast, they could light up the whole f’ing Country.

        • QuinnTheEskimo9

          Don’t spare us. I enjoy reading your great commentary.
          I saw where a bill being introduced in California would allow “undocumented” Americans to sit on juries and judge US. Can you imagine?
          Will find link and post.

          • SmithandSmith

            Thank You. You’re very kind and I appreciate you saying that. And yeah, I saw it but not where you saw it. I saw it here.

            If you don’t already, Judicial Watch is a good place and whatever State you’re in probably has some group that watches the proposed Legislation and passed Laws from your Legislature and Center for Immigration Studies is great and NumbersUSA is good and American Center for Law and Justice and Faith Freedom.org (not .com) and Peter G. Peterson Foundation and Watchdog.org and Citizens Against Government Waste are a few places you might like.

            Let me know who some of your favorite websites are please!

            As for the Illegal Aliens sitting on Juries, you watch wait and see if every single White Person who is unfortunate enough to have them as their “peers” don’t find them guilty every time.

    • Intrepid

      As with many other trends, I would guess Blacks & Hispanics are disproportionately represented among food stamp users, then Whites, and least likely users Asians.

      Unsurprisingly, most American companies are run by Whites, and it’s these same companies who outsourced much of the manufacturing overseas. It wasn’t forced. It was greed. That “junk” that comes from the third world would be coming from U.S, factories too if it was still made here… because if something that can be bought from the dollar store, then it’s not going to last long regardless of where it came from.

      In the end, even though a product might be “Made in China”, the companies are ultimately responsible for quality control. Same goes for food.

      • SmithandSmith

        I don’t know what the true numbers are but I doubt White People use more Welfare than asians. – http://articles.latimes.com/1987-02-09/news/mn-1969_1_southeast-asian-refugees

        “The World Journal, the largest Chinese-language daily in the United States, even runs a semi-regular “Dear Abby”-style advice column on SSI and other welfare benefits.” – http://www.cis.org/WelfareReformPrediction

        As for the companies in America, some are run by White People and some by Jews and some by non-whites – “Census Bureau Reports Number of Minority-Owned Firms Increased at More Than Double the Rate of All U.S. Businesses From 2002 to 2007” – http://www.census.gov/newsroom/releases/archives/business_ownership/cb11-103.html

        Since the beginning of Time, greed has been the name of the game. And I know all about the “quality” of Third World Made Junk ’cause I remember when everything used to work in this Country. I also know who is ultimately responsible for it all of it too. I have never blamed the natives of any of those countries ’cause they’re just building according to spec like they’re supposed to and anyone who has ever had a job knows this.

      • redfeathers

        There’s a very high use of EBT and WIC by asians in NYC. I see it all the time.

        • Intrepid

          It’s all relative. I’d wager the use by blacks, hispanics and low incomes whites in most places is even higher.

  • a multiracial individual

    We all know that many Blacks are not currently looking for employment. Of course this does not mean that liberals are not correct about business owners being unwilling to hire us. My suspicion is that if Blacks started vigorous attempts to return to the private sector there would still be employment problems. Does a person who is vigorously engaged in a job search deserve to starve?

    • Jefferson

      You believe Liberals are correct about business owners being unwilling to hire Blacks ?

      • a multiracial individual

        Small business owners? Yes. Large corporations? No.

        • libertarian 1234

          Why are they “unwilling” to hire blacks?

          And what positions are they (or would they) be applying for?

          • QuinnTheEskimo9

            Most blacks are incompetent and are given positions to deflect any business-destroying lawsuits about not having enough blacks to fulfill government mandates.

          • a multiracial individual

            I was not making any recommendation, I was merely pointing out that small businesses do not desire to hire Blacks.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Why would small business managers and owners feel this way. Could there possibly be something about black behavior?

            Consider this from the other angle as well. Large corporations probably do not want to hire blacks either, but do so only because they are forced into it by affirmative action laws that do not apply to typical small businesses that have only a handful of employees (I forget where this cutoff is, but I believe it is 15 people.)

    • I Forgot

      You can’t give a black person a job. They want a *position*. They are qualified to the kind of work the Mexicans seem to have no trouble finding, but they simply won’t do that kind of work.

        Here is a comment a nice poster at Huffington Post left on an immigration article:

        “It’s very good. Anything that weakens white power is a good thing. If
        it was up to me, I’d quadruple immigration. Finish the job.

        And spare me the taking jobs from Black folks thing, whiteboys. Cause I
        don’t want Jose’s job mowing lawns or shuckin chickens, I’m looking at
        your job making 10-100 times that. Keep thinking Black folks are gonna
        fight for crumbs. We’re coming to take….it….all.’

          Well, Gaaltero, you can’t even compete with us on a equal basis. How do you expect to push us aside with an average I.Q. of 85 and less overall ability, creativity, ingenuity and innovativeness?

          In fact, Gaaltero, you can’t even keep up with any racial group, not just whites.

          • PesachPatriot

            Gaaltero will be singing a very different tune, most likely a blues song, once millions of pedros, joses, and marias have been granted full legal citizenship and voting rights….they will be shoved out of their jobs in favor of better behaved, more employable hispanics who actually can learn english, MLK boulevards will start being renamed after Santa Ana and Cesar Chavez and even their coveted AA gubmint jobs will be pulled out from underneath them.

            Hispanics will not be playing nice and attempting to be fair with the blacks like white americans, both libs and conservatives did for so long….when newly legalized hispanics are the majority of the police in places like LA, San Antonio and Miami they will have no hesitation in using south of the border police tactics to crack skulls and fill prisons with those who have competed against them in the unlicensed pharmaceutical industry for so long, when jesse and al come along to scream and cry to the media they will be met with tactics that will make Bull Connor look like Gandhi….the “new americans” will also shove them aside in the gibsmedat line because they will finally qualify for uncle sam’s goodies.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          That’s amusing, because it reflects a complete ignorance of the qualifications and education needed for one of those good jobs. Black high school dropouts are simply not going to be hired as software engineers, mutual fund managers, stockbrokers or airframe & powerplant mechanics.

          This poster also seems to be ignoring the fact that companies wanting to fill good high-tech positions are already bringing in Indians and Chinese instead of hiring blacks for these positions and have been doing so for some 20 years.

          What he is saying is that institutionalized incompetence should be made society-wide instead of being limited to government agencies that by their very nature as public-sector entities do not have to be economically competitive. The problem is that foreign competition would quickly become devastating. If you were in charge of purchasing equipment for a laboratory, would you want a scanning electron microscope produced by drugged-up dropouts in Detroit, or an imported model made in Germany or Japan?

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      How many blacks are “vigorously engaged” is a job search? Most blacks are unskilled or low skilled and are being replaced in ALL job sectors by Hispanics. Why no complaints about that from black “leaders?” Why should blacks work when the government gives them everything from free phones, to free food, to free housing, to cash handouts?

      Also, anyone accepting handouts does not have the right to bring more parasites into the world and then demand the rest of us feed, clothe and “educate” them too. We Whites have had to limit the size of our families to what we could afford. NorPlant should be a condition of receiving any form of welfare, until a job search is “vigorously” underway and one is able to support himself and his children.

      • a multiracial individual

        Are we arguing?

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Probably the only blacks engaged in a job search are the ones on parole who have to look for work as a parole condition.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    This is good news and means the economy has completely recovered!!

    Well, at least that’s what Nancy Pelosi and Kirsten Gillibrand think:

    Sen. Gillibrand:

    It pays salaries for grocery clerks, truckers who haul the food. The USDA estimates 16 cents go right back to the farmer. Food stamps are such a good investment into our economy, for every dollar that you put into food stamps you get a $1.71 back into the economy!

    Nancy Pelosi:

    If you want to create jobs, the quickest way to do it is to provide more funding for food stamps. Nothing creates jobs faster than the injecting demand into the economy, and that demand is created when people use the food stamps.

    If I could get an EBT card, I would. The Feds are stealing from me already so I would like to get back anything I could.

    Where’s MY STUFF!! I WANT MY STUFF!!

    Bon

  • well, maybe if the Dems and GOP politicians would stop imported cheap foreign labor, those folks could get a job.

    I thought amren and vdare etc were supposed to be against the anti-white, race spoils programs that the rich have instituted in our nation, and against importation of mass numbers of cheap foreign labor.

    But here you are railing against food stamps. I got news for you–there are probably more whites like you and me on food stamps than nonwhites. And I know what i am talking about.

    Is amren against the anti-white and pro-immigration policies of the govt and the big corps? Or are they speaking on behalf of the rich investors who want to end food stamps?

    My white brothers and sisters NEED those food stamps to live on, thanks especially to the Dem politicians and also thanks to the GOP politicians that have imported cheap labor and passed laws to discriminate against whites.

    Is amren on the side of working whites who need those food stamps. Or is amren on the side of the rich upper class types that want to do away with food stamps?

    • SmithandSmith

      You need to understand, White Folk will not be forsaken. This means you. We’ve always helped each other before and that’s not gonna change.

      While the stats “look” like the majority of people who use them are White, that’s actually not true. You know there are groups of non-whites who are currently classified as White so all the numbers, population count, crime, etc. are all wrong.

      Welfare needs to go away because that in and of itself will make many people go home on their own accord and we need all the help we can git. And remember, it won’t be you who goes without in this Country of yours so please, please don’t worry.

      By the way, those muslims who bombed Boston were on Welfare (free housing, school grant, etc.) and that should be a good reason to be against Welfare as well.

      • all nonsense.

      • pcmustgo

        Also, food banks wouldn’t be as over-burdened and could step in and cover the costs…

        • SmithandSmith

          Welfare was never a drain on America until the non-whites started using it. You had the generational white abusers but according to my research, they’re not the ones who drained it.

          I’m adamantly against any and all forms of Welfare because it’s not why America was Founded. Helping other people is supposed to be voluntary, not involuntary. And, Welfare is Taxation without Representation. Giving my money to other people without my express approval is not representing me, it’s stealing from me. Poor people can’t help me in any way. They can’t hire me, they can’t help me pay my bills or help me eat or educate me so where’s the Representation?

          People have gotten into a bad habit of expecting help with and for any problem they have and that expectation of theirs has not only turned them into rude little brats but has also made them forget to say Thank You to those they’re taking from.

          People seem to believe that they’re the only ones who have problems and bills to pay and that’s a problem.

          Just so you know, I’ve always been dirt poor so I’m not writing this coming from a position of comfort. I have nothing saved for retirement, I’m uneducated and I have no prospects neither. I feel and strongly so, my problems are not your problems. If you want to help me, that’d be great and greatly appreciated but you don’t owe me just because I happen to have problems.

          By the way, fishing and hunting is legal. That’s what we used to do when we needed food. I don’t know whatever happened to being Independent.

    • NYB

      Modern state welfare programs to help the volk were pioneered under Bismarck. The idea in principle is not in question.

      The problem is the scale.

      • actually people have always helped their own. Even the neanderthal and homo erectus helped their own kind. Modern society is a bad place in many ways.

    • Alexandra

      It’s not the percentage of recipients that are white…it’s the percentage of whites on food stamps vs. blacks vs. hispanics.
      Say you have a population of 100. Twenty are black. You have 40 whites on food stamps and 19 blacks. That would be 50% of the white population and 95% of the black population. It’s all in how it’s broken down.
      I believe they’re doing this on purpose to enslave the people. If you don’t have to rely on Uncle Sam, great. If you find yourself in that situation, think of it as getting a refund…and try to do what you can to get out.
      I believe in charity. Of course we should help the poor. But if all someone wants is to get freebies (like your typical ghetto thug), forget it.
      I live near the Amish. From what I hear, they don’t have medical insurance and if someone in their community has a huge medical bill, they pitch in and help each other.

  • NYB

    From the year 123 B.C. onwards, until the fall of the Roman Empire, each Roman citizen was entitled to a welfare payment – a daily allotment of state-funded food.

    The reason for the food dole was simple: it was to pacify the population. It was an admitted failure of whatever free market existed. Too much wealth was trickling up to Rome’s one percent.

    How did it end? Threats to the food stability were responded to with despotism. The Romans lost their liberties before the inevitable collapse of the feeding system. As the tax base eroded, the army disappeared. (The Romans lacked today’s Federal Reserve pumping $85 billion a month onto the books).

    By the time the true famine was in force in 383 A.D., the people were deserting the cities for the land. The population tumbled. For these conditions to repeat themselves today, we only need a disastrous global harvest or a collapse of the banking bubble.

  • Jefferson

    One day there will not be enough White taxpayers left to financially maintain the nanny state. The day that happens, expect NAMs all over the country to riot and loot because their gravy train ride came to an end.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      Let ’em. It’s going to happen anyway so let’s get this over with now and get it settled once and for all. Just be prepared for the federal government to come after Whites with everything they’ve got including military weaponry which they’re giving to local police departments now. We are the ones the government considers terrorists and to the feds, blacks can do no wrong.

  • Mrfinoni

    this includes the illegals ….. their low wages are subsidised by the taxpayer…. that being said keep in mind many do not declare all of their income… just look at the remittances going back to Mexico and Latin America

    You know it’s sad. I really do believe in a SANE and fundable social safety net, in theory. But between the insane political morass and the growing number of parasites…

    Yet another fair dream sacrificed on the alter of DIVERSICUS, ALMIGHTY GOD OF WHITE GENOCIDE!

    • a multiracial individual

      There is nothing wrong with a safety net, the problem is when people try and turn it into a hammock.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Yeah…it’s quite the shame. Take health care…

        Last time I did a massive googling/personal research, trudging through all the misinformation and obfuscating ideology, here’s what I got…

        There are ultimately only two statistics that it all boils down to…

        1. Percent of national GDP spent on health care and…

        2. Average lifespan.

        We can jibber jabber all we want about anything else but boiling it all down these two numbers are all that matter, and they show what an evil system we have now in that regard. The “socialist” liberals have this one right.

        Last time I looked, like a year or two back, US spent like 14.8% GDP on health care, average lifespan like 78.2 years.

        Of all the other civilized nations on the world, only Germany spent over 10% GDP – like 10.2% I think…and had an average lifespan of…almost 82 I think. No other nation capped 10%, and ALL lived STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANTLY LONGER, from Cuba (9.?% GDP, 78.6 years, Costa Rica, 9.?%, 78.8, and most of Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan, all less than 10%, all from 79 – around 81 years or so…

        All issues of race aside (look at Cuba, for instance), I firmly believe that a “socialist” medical system is undeniably more effective and efficient than our sorry excuse of a money sucking “system”. How many people die before their time, suffer conditions that if treated would make them happier and more productive, all for that extra McMansion or collectors’ classic Thunderbird insurance company executive “NEED” in order to motivate them to do their stinking parasitic jobs? It is for these sickening parasites that people die and suffer, and arguably become ultimately wards of the state, for these parasites and their excuse making ideology.

        But present this to a White who is justifiably

        a. sick of seeing their tax money go to idiotic, irresponsible baby factories and…

        b. suspicious of any affirmative action, make-work gubbamint being capable of running such a system…

        And it’s like talking to a brick wall.

        You know, MRI, I admire you for coming into this lion’s den and consistently, courageously, maintaining your intellectual integrity. Gives me some hope for the social sciences (pseudo-sciences as they’ve unfortunately devolved into). I bark and growl and definitely have my opinions but in a perfect world, a real meritocracy, I have no problem with you and folks like you, socially in the American context consider you “white” in fact.

        THAT’S what we really need, a return to something resembling a meritocracy. Not a believer in Camelot, but we DID once have a functional civil service in this country that I believe helped grow a powerful and fair economy that provided opportunity for individuals and business and attempted to impose a little fairness and justice and perspective on dog-eat-dog unrestricted capitalism. Interstate highway system, TVA, man on the moon…plenty of government involvement in the economy that actually facilitated healthy capitalism.

        But what we have now is a nationless self perpetuating state that consists of little more than a big inter-group free-for-all grabfest. And it’s destroying us.

        Keep up the good work there at school. Someone such as yourself may be our country’s best shot, may be the only voice indoctrinated sheeple and dupes will listen to…because if I say it…I be racist!

          Last time I looked, like a year or two back, US spent like 14.8% GDP on health care, average lifespan like 78.2 years.

          A couple of other reasons why the average American lifespan might be lower:

          1. Nadeshauntavious murders 15-year old Shitavious for his shoes.

          2. 42-year old Leroy’s body is found in some field. He died of a common cold because the cold virus infected his body and his immune system couldn’t fight it off because his immune system was compromised by AIDS, which he got from doing every ho in town doggystyle and also from a couple stints in prison, and he didn’t keep up with his AIDS medications.

          Get the drift?

          • a multiracial individual

            If I am not too mistaken, White Americans still have lower life expectancy than White Europeans. White Americans eat a lot of junk food, and drink a lot of beer.

  • MBlanc46

    How about investing the proceeds of American labor in the US, thereby increasing the demand for American labor and obviating whatever necessity for such programs there might have been?

  • equality demographic ratios

    So how many illegal mooch spics in the food line too? 50 million more? Funny how they only count actual US citizens, only for now anyway if Republican gangsters have their way.

    Didnt Bush flood 20-30 million claiming they did jobs his type wouldn’t do and thinking they would leave or vote for him? Chump.

    Why not allow 11 million white South Africans or white Europeans into America as compensation and reverse political correctness so things will even out? Why should whites get the short end of the stick in their own nation in the modern phucked up age anyway?

    If all races are created equal as Jefferson and the pc world claims then we need 11 million illegal whites to be legalized with the 11 million spics. Is that not a great deal for Obamamerica

    liveral sleazebags since if whites outnumber non-whites 3-1 then technically whites should be getting 33 million new citizens from white nations. Non-whites are ganging up against whites but that is fair? Oh contraire monsieur.

    Even Jefferson in all his pc ignorance and lies would have agreed that demographic ratios should be equalized or at least we hope he would have agree with this fairness doctrine.

  • Erasmus

    Flood the country with tens of millions of economic refugees from abroad…even as you’re outsourcing America’s real wealth producing capability…and what else would any rational person expect to happen?

    Lest anyone forget, Mr. Bush also played a large role by not securing the border and, effectively, encouraging the invasion at every turn. Who can forget that on 9/10/2001 he had announced his plans to amnesty millions of Mexicans who’d entered the US illegally or that he said “We want ’em” when told about the invaders streaming across our southern border?

    When tens of millions of low-skilled, illegal aliens are amnestied, the problem is going to only get worse. Much, much worse. I’m going to miss the country I grew up in and loved.

  • Ella

    At a grocery store, a Hispanic man had wads and wads of 20’s in his wallet as he pulled out his SNAP card. I shook my head in total disgust and glared. He looked at me in shame I think and then, paid in cash. Since when working for food and shelter have become “improper”? Tax paying Americans use much of our monies to pay for food and health care. Are we the paying people seen as fools since we don’t play the system? Or should we if it all goes down?

  • pcmustgo

    Well, OK, but it is a nightmarish recession out there… plenty of whites need food stamps too.

  • Paleoconn

    I believe 30 million or so were on food stamps when Obama took office, 50 million now. Eterenal gummint clients is what this administration desires.

    The administration also advertises food stamp programs in Mexico. Come to America, we will feed you.
