23,116,928 to 20,618,000: Households on Food Stamps Now Outnumber All Households in Northeast U.S.

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News, September 17, 2013

A record 23,116,928 American households were enrolled in the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—AKA food stamps—during the month of June, according to data released this month by the Department of Agriculture.

That outnumbers the 20,618,000 households that the Census Bureau estimated were in the entire Northeastern United States as of the second quarter of 2013.

According to the Census Bureau, the Northeast region includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Thus, in June, the households receiving food stamps exceeded the total combined households in all of these states.

The 23,116,928 million households on food stamps in June also outnumbered the 15,030,000 home-owning households in the entire Western United States in the second quarter of the year and the 18,018,000 home-owning households in the entire Midwest.

The West, as delineated by the Census Bureau, includes Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii. {snip}

The Midwest includes North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. {snip}

The record 23,116,928 households on food stamps in June also equaled 20.16 percent—or more than one-fifth–of all 114,663,000 households nationwide in the United States as of June, according to the Census Bureau.

In fiscal 2009, the year President Barack Obama was inaugurated, there was a monthly average of 15,161,469 American households on food stamps, according to the Department of Agriculture. {snip}

    While it’s not good that so many people can’t earn their own living, our country is awash in food, and there probably isn’t anything better to do with the excess than give it away. Just make sure the recipients are AMERICANS.

    • White Mom in WDC

      Exactly. Charity begins at home

  • Whitetrashgang

    Well I was getting worried because its not like 75 % of Americans are overweight. America doesn’t need food stamps it needs workcamps

    • mgs166

      Yes it does. It also needs deportation camps.

    • Jefferson

      Who is that in your username pic ? Is that the longest reigning Intercontinental champion of all time, The Honky Tonk Man ?

      • Whitetrashgang

        Well its either THTman or me playing guitar,I dont know which is worse

  • Puggg

    Obama is hawking food stamps in Mexico. Soon, the number of households on food stamps will be greater than the total number of households in the whole country.

  • mgs166

    I can already feel my lower back starting to ache.

    • Thor Bonham

      lmao… hahaah , Good one for the morning wake up coffee ,

  • JohnEngelman

    Congressional Republicans have de funded food stamps while preserving farm subsidies. Much of the subsidy money goes to agribusiness which is very profitable.

  • Spartacus

    America is collapsing, and this is a good thing. You guys make sure you’re ready when this happens – guns, food, living away from dark-skins, etc.

    • JohnEngelman

      When America collapses China will dominate the world politically, militarily, and economically.

      The United States may emerge from the rubble as two countries. The country that does the best economically will the the country that is dominated by Orientals and Jews.

      • Spartacus

        When America collapses, there’s gonna be tens of millions of unemployed Chinese workers within months. Good luck dominating the world with that…

        And if IQ mattered more than race, Israel wouldn’t have less than half the GDP per capita of Ireland.

          Does that number include the billions of US welfare dollars our government extorts from us to send to them every year?

          • Spartacus

            Yes, it does. Nearly a quarter of a trillion $ since the Israhell was founded…

      • Andy

        I don’t know. It’s our high-IQs that have gotten us into this mess. IQ matters, but it’s not all that matters.

        • Andy

          The Other Guest – (Sorry, your post’s inactive)

          No, I am not Jewish. I was using high-IQs to mean high-IQ people. Otherwise I would not have put in the hyphen. I worried that it was unclear, and I guess it was. Our high-IQ people, Jewish and gentile alike, support idiotic policies and have no concern for their effect on those who do not live in a 95% white town and who cannot pay their own way through college and get a job illegal immigrants can’t compete for. I am not sure this is inherent to smart people, however. If they were less isolated and the schools were not propaganda machines, they might well figure things out.

      • rowingfool

        John, I’ve answered you before and you called me an AntiSemite. I don’t think you can muster a better argument this time, but here goes. I promise, this is the last time I’ll bother correcting you.

        It you would do your homework you would see that when the bell curves of Jewish and EuroAmerican peoples are superimposed, the relative number of Jewish people of high IQ is indeed higher but that the absolute number is smaller. There are simply so many more EuroAmericans that their absolute number of geniuses swamp the much smaller Jewish population.

        Professor Lynn is a very bright man and has uncovered a profound relationship. But…..

        There may be more to a nation’s well being, high standard of living, and technical success than bare IQ. Hence all the studies about “social capital” and “social trust”. Most of the explanations for why Europe was the home of the Enlightenment and the Scientific Revolution leave room for doubt. Undoubtedly IQ plays a large part, but there’s more. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and your narrow focus on IQ is reductionistic.

        If a sense of ingroup loyalty is part of human nature, then a society of diverse geniuses may not fare as well as a more homogenous group of people just slightly less talented. For proof, we need look no further than the success of German manufacturing as evidenced by their consistent export surplus of high-end manufactured goods. Evidently, the world disagrees with you because they value Germany’s products more highly than either the U.S. of A’s (with it’s large population of high IQ Jews) or Israel’s.

        For better or for worse, humans want to feel that they are members of a Team, with a colored jersey (distinctive uniform) and mascot (totem). They put forth their best effort in response to group expectations. As the social experiment called the “Soviet Union” demonstrated, people cannot be motivated by abstract notions of equality towards other generalized alien groups. Now a similar experiment is underway here in the United States, perpetrated by the descendants of the same people whose last experiment ended in such dismal failure. They don’t learn from their mistakes. It must be a character flaw to which they are, in spite of their high IQ, blind. They may be well intentioned, but they stand in need of correction. Balance. Moderation. Temperance. They have become intolerant bigots (political correctness) and this will engender (a la Hegel) a reaction. I don’t say this in the manner of a threat, I foresee it.

        • Whitetrashgang

          Its not a flaw, when you are a small population on top you must have as much chaos on bottom 99 % to keep the 99%ers occupied.

  • bigone4u

    There’s allegedly fraud in the use of “food stamps.” I see no stamps at the supermarket but I do see able bodied youths purchasing luxury food items with a government card of some kind–food stamps? Anyway, the elderly and disabled are one thing, but able-bodied youth ought to work for their benefits. Or else, send them to a food bank like the one here locally that gives out peanut butter, canned beans, etc. The staples will keep you going without the $20 a pound super grass fed beef.

    • Rick Brooks

      EBT (electronic benefits transfer) cards have replace actual food stamps in most (if not all) states. Recipients just swipe it like they would a credit or debit card. And speaking of fraud, people have been using them to get lottery tickets, alcohol and even for lap dances at strip joints!

      • Thor Bonham

        I think that it’s legal in California to buy tobacco ,alcohol and gamble with an EBT card ..
        Usually what happens in California first ends up coming our way soon ..

        • Rick Brooks

          This kind of EBT fraud was happening in Massachusetts.. clear across the country from California.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        In my state (not sure about others), people who qualify for both food stamps and cash welfare benefits usually get both on the same card. They can use the cash portion for anything they want.

        And if they sell the food stamps (which is illegal), they can also use that money for whatever they want. The going rate is two food stamps for one dollar in cash. This happens on a daily basis in ethnic supermarkets, particularity ones run by Arabs or Africans.

        • Don’t think that mainstream credible retailers aren’t engaging in food stamp fraud.

    • Libs are We Todd Ed

      I could not agree more, food welfare, if the government is involved at all should be limited to foods like bread, potatoes, rice, beans, cheese, flour, cooking oil, and maybe butter, milk, and eggs if there are kids to feed, but nothing more than the bare minimum of staples.

      • willbest

        It would be nice if everybody on food stamps had say 25 lbs of staples given to them monthly rather than cash. But I would bet you the fraud in the present system is still cheaper than whatever delivery system got implemented.

        • Andy

          I would have the delivery system be a warehouse in each town where people could come to pick up their food. If you can’t walk a few miles for it, you probably don’t need it. We’d have to make exceptions for the elderly and disabled and people in really unpopulated areas.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        B-But Shaniqua can’t trade staple foods for hair extensions and $300 sneakers for her illegitimate son! Das racis’!

    • willbest

      We don’t want to put the able bodied youth to work for their benefits. That is a good union job..

  • Andy

    The government has some welfare programs that just give people money to spend on anything. Some, like food stamps, give you a debit card that you can only use to buy approved items at approved stores. The requirements to be part of each program are different.

  • Puggg

    Except certain people need to buy dope with their cash welfare benefits. So we need to turn around and give them food-only welfare benefits — And in some cases, they’re finding ways to buy dope with food stamps.

    • Thor Bonham

      Yeah , they used to bring in the food stamps to bodegas and trade them for cash, two for a dollar.. Course, now they are on EBT/SNAP cards so they actually have to buy things the bodegas wants to sell in their store, like enfamil baby food and trade that for cash .. It’s a whole business.. My sister is a police officer in Bridgeport Ct . She tells me stories like this ALL the time..
      Some of the bodega owners are from Dominican Republic and they take that baby food and send it back to their people/family there ..
      It’s all a big scam ..

  • IKantunderstand

    The food stamp program is a joke. I can’t recount how many times people in front of me in line at the grocery store, purchase king crab legs, shrimp, porterhouse steaks, etc., and then, with a flourish, whip out the EBT. Bad enough it is mostly Blacks, but even more galling, also dot Indians who barely spoke English. To say nothing of all the people (Arabs) who run thriving businesses providing fifty cents (or less) on the dollar, purchasing EBT cards. I personally, have been offered the use of an EBT card to buy my groceries, and was then asked to provide said holder of card reimbursement in cash, less twenty five percent. Although tempted, I said: “No”. These entreaties were from strangers. Must have an honest face. What really depresses me, is that there seems to be no shame about public assistance. In fact, it seems to have become something to brag about. I firmly believe that my White ancestors would have preferred to go without, than taking welfare from anyone. In fact, I know some who did exactly that. And, the rest of the family, helped them over the rough patches. I was also informed, that everyone was paid back, in one form or another. It’s shocking to think, that once upon a time, this country of White people, managed to care for each other without government intervention. We were a tribe who worked, prayed, and played together. We were a nation united in triumphs, and in calamities. We stuck together, and loved our hard fought for home. I reject the re-writing of history. Whites have done nothing but fight bravely our entire history. Whites are not the cause of all the ills of the world. What a patently false allegation this is. I’m sick to death of these racist allegations against MY people. We Whites are now reeling from the effects of discrimination, and the countries, and cultures that we so painstakiingly created over thousands of years, are now threatened with extinction.

    Obama, his handlers and his pets want everyone dependent on all kinds of government support. Not only are food stamps rampant so are unemployment and disability payments.

    What the sheeple forget is that the government that can give you everything, can take it all away.

    • Ella

      In Eastern Europe, many people make similar pay, so it averages around 7-10K for annual income. They don’t get food stamps to offset high costs of food, and you see no obesity -very rare. Some elderly may be overweight from age, beer and desserts, but when you pay for your own food, overeating is a luxury that adds up to thousands of dollars extra much like frequent drinking or smoking. I only wish to buy Halibut, lobster, filet mignon and European imported foods often. EBT card holders have extra credit and then, bill the tax payers with no conscience.

    • Stan D Mute

      It cannot and it will not. This is why there is such minor difference between RepugnantCons and DemonRats. Each party has a majority of members who gain more from more and bigger government. Neither party has the slightest interest in reducing the size, scope, or power of government. They have merely minor differences of opinion on how fast it grows and in which areas.

      The only way it ends is in complete collapse which, based on the fact that the Fed today admitted it cannot stop QE3 and must continue magically creating $85 Billion per month in new Monopoly dollars indefinitely, collapse will occur within many readers’ lifetimes. The trick, of course, lies in predicting exactly *when* this collapse will occur. Poll results today showed that only 25% of Americans had any idea what QE is or what it means. Remember that QE began when the Treasury had a bond sale and nobody showed up. The Fed responded by firing up the printing presses to buy government debt with imaginary money. Recall too the government debt clock hasn’t moved a dollar in *months*. So our government is hiding the fact that its borrowing $85 billion Monopoly dollars each and every month. How long can this charade continue? And why now, of all times, the frantic push to legalize 11-30 million illegal invaders?

      We live in interesting times indeed.

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      Unemployment isn’t welfare. I agree, however, that some people even use unemployment longer than they should. But in a bad economy, I am sure that plenty of whites can’t help the fact that they went into professions that at the time had plentiful jobs, but now, they unexpectedly, had a turn for the worse. And it doesn’t help that part time jobs that many of these whites would be willing to take, discriminate against the “overqualified”. I know what it is like to get unexpectedly laid off. It isn’t fun. I got back to work as soon as possible, but for many, it isn’t as easy.

      Again, unemployment isn’t welfare. They only give you a certain amount based on what your previous salary was and how long you worked. In other words, it is something you already paid into. It is temporary. The government cuts it off after a certain point.

      This is why the so called “unemployment rate” is such a small percentage, and why they government keeps manipulating the statistics. The so called “unemployed” are decent people looking for work. The “unemployment rate” doesn’t factor in all the people who have stopped looking, and the even larger percentage who have never worked, and who live off welfare.

      • Luca

        The unemployment, disability and welfare programs are all government run. They all have a legitimate purpose and they have all been abused by this administration to make citizens more dependent on the government, to create an entitlement mentality and to vote Democratic.

        • CourtneyfromAlabama

          How is unemployment the same as welfare if it is something you are only allowed to get if you paid more into the system than you are getting back temporarily, have had a job of a certain salary, AND if while you are on unemployment it is a requirement to report the work you look for? How is that the same as welfare?

          Some people abuse unemployment by being on it for way too long, not exploring all their options to bring in money through part time work etc….. But many people don’t abuse unemployment and do whatever they possibly can to get a job as soon as they can.

          • Luca

            It is not the same as welfare nor did I say it was. I said it is a government program that is being abused by not only the politicians who administer it, but the players who are collecting it. The amount of money a person and employer puts into it has become a joke compared to the amount taken out. They put money in with a teaspoon and withdraw it with a shovel. Do you know how many people are content to work for 52 weeks and then collect unemployment for 99 weeks?

            It is and always was a legitimate safety net, an insurance program, and it works well in a good economy and provides relief when times are bad. Don’t you see the Obama gravy train running down the tracks and how every single aspect of government programs are being abused?

            I am only talking about the abuse which is rampant under the current administration.

      • Jenkem Huffington

        The thing that people “pay into” that they can draw from if they become unemployed is called a BANK ACCOUNT. Simplify with a shoebox full of cash or gold and silver coins if you don’t trust banks.
        “Unemployment” checks from the government are most certainly welfare and socialist. It’s not “your money” that you are “getting back”. It’s MY money that I’m paying today and our children’s money that they will be forever enslaved in paying the debts that create today’s money.
        Truth be told if you’re getting a check without actually doing anything to earn it or from a capital investment you have made you are taking it from somebody else with force and by my estimation no better than a mud mugging somebody on a subway car.
        Get a job, live within your means, sell assets. If you can not and have no assets, try not living like a negro/hand-to-mouth hunter gatherer.
        in short ANYBODY getting a check from the government is a parasite that is going to kill the host. This is absolutely unsustainable and why “democracy” is code for socialism, (people figure out they can vote for a living), and why socialism invariably becomes authoritarian and despotic when it comes time to force SOMEONE to work for all the handouts.

        • CourtneyfromAlabama

          That is pretty harsh. There is a big difference between someone who never works and never even looks for jobs their entire life, and someone who is temporarily on unemployment, looking for work wherever they can, and has already paid more than their fair share of taxes, much more than they are currently getting back. If that is the case, then how in the world is that person taking YOUR money the same way somebody on welfare is?

          Have you ever read about what unemployment actually is and who is classified as “unemployed”? It sounds to me like you just want to lump it in with welfare and with what most people are doing who are on welfare. Actually, you go a step further than that and lump decent white people who are temporarily on unemployment in with criminals on subways in one of your sentences.

          As far as saving goes, do you realize how hard it is for the average white person to save these days? How is it possible when most of our paycheck gets taken away? Considering how unfair things are for most whites, why are you criminalizing the decent ones doing what they can to look for work after losing jobs through no fault of their own, taking money from something they have already paid more of their fair share into their entire lives?

          • Jenkem Huffington

            You will not convince me that getting paid for doing nothing is right, moral, “fair”, or in any way a good idea.

            As an example a gal I knew was a dental assistant and one day showed up for work to discover the doctor no longer needed her. After she got on “unemployment”, got some food stamps, free insurance for her daughter, no longer paying daycare, etc. etc. all tallied up she had MORE at the end of a month than she did going to work every day earning 24$ an hour. Needless to say she was less than motivated to send out resumes once the full power of the dole started kicking in.
            When you pay people that much to not work and punitively tax those who do you encourage unemployment and the middle class rapidly becomes a dependent class. True, browns are the #1 abusers, and I’m happy to see a few whites taking advantage of it, but it is still 100% lack of planning, living hand to mouth like a mud, and turning the “safety net” into a hammock 99% of the time as far as I’ve seen.
            If you are not saving you are living above your means and it is NOT the responsibility of your neighbors to pay your tab if you cease working (though they may volunteer through private charity or church). I saw an article a few years back of some negro woman who saved a million dollars working at McDonalds. It is difficult and uncomfortable, but not impossible and if people weren’t dependent and conditioned to expect a free ride they would be overall planning better.

            The reason we all pay high taxes has little or nothing to do with all the muds on welfare, nor even the endless wars that we seem to need to “keep us free”. It is merely the flip side of the coin to having a central bank issuing fiat (debt based) money. It is a means of social control and helps hide the inflationary nature of the currency. Those are all major points of communism (read Marx). There are the majority of breeders/eaters, there are the elites who are looting the store before it burns to the ground, and there are those of us who are planning to survive what is sure to come.
            Sad to say, but there will come a day when the EBT (Easy Barak Transfer) cards cease working and the well runs dry on the myriad of other handouts and the ever-full trough becomes empty. It is vital that those of us with the capacity to defer gratification are prepared to feed ourselves for 6 months to a year, defend what we have from the Zulu hoards who will attempt to take it from us, and maintain order (at least on a micro scale) in our neighborhoods.
            I foresee when the SHTF 50% of the population or more will be at the verge of starvation in under a week and it will look like a zombie apocalypse when the mob attempts to take what they need by force from those who are prepared. Things will look like a Mad Max movie for 6-9 months while the herd is thinned significantly and then the Chinese army (or possibly UN) will be invited in to restore “order” at which point we will be given a new constitution (with NO bill of rights and under a socialist/communist model).
            Long story short, if you’re expecting “the government” to take care of you, you’re delusional. Best to learn pretty fast how to do for yourself because very soon, like it or lump it, you’re going to HAVE TO.

          • CourtneyfromAlabama

            I still don’t understand why you continue to label people using unemployment for the right reason as “taking money without earning it”. I already went into all of that above. And you continue to talk as if you are talking to me and labeling me as one of those people you despise. Wow. And if you assume that most people on unemployment are major abusers of it then something is wrong. That isn’t the case at all. It is the case for people on welfare.

          • Jenkem Huffington

            For nearly all my adult life I’ve worked for myself, piece-rate, or in straight commission sales. If I don’t work and produce something I don’t get paid. I have never got a check in my life without having to exchange work or goods of equal value. Getting “something for nothing” is immoral and you should feel it in your gut that it’s wrong.
            “I paid in” is not far removed from the “gibs muh dat” mentality of the average ghetto walrus. Rugged individualism and self sufficiency is the hallmark of the white Europeans who made US of A great. If this is hurting your feelings you may want to really take a look at what more you can do to become self sufficient, save more, spend less, and not be dependent on the state for a weekly check.

            Funny how 30 million illegal squat monsters can pick strawberries for 3$ an hour and manage to save enough to send home and support their families, and white Europeans are buried in debt from buying junk they don’t need to try to impress people they don’t care about.

          • CourtneyfromAlabama

            I was trying to be polite in my last message. Here you are repeating the same stuff in a stubborn way about how unemployment is just the same as welfare. It isn’t. It is insulting to even compare the two. Welfare recipients, most of the time haven’t paid into anything. Unemployment is temporary and most people use it to get back on their feet while looking for work, and they have already paid more than their fair share of taxes to get such little money in return. If that is the case, then you can’t tell me that YOU are the one paying for it. Unemployment is given to you based on how much you previously earned. I explained this to you over and over again.

            Even though I tried to be polite with you and reach an agreement in my last post, you have gone a step further here in your last response, and you have accused me of being government dependent. Guess what? I have worked most of my life also. I have gone through two ever so brief periods where I was on unemployment before getting back on my feet. Both periods were well under a year, and I got off as soon as I could get off of it. I am a person who works and likes to work.

            I am done discussing this with you.

    • [Guest]

      The government that supplies the everyday needs of the populace can take them away but in the meantime will CONTROL the populace. Once you’re a dependent, you’ll sell your principles (and your vote) to ensure that the government checks keep turning up in your mailbox. The transformation of Americans (and illegal aliens) into dependents of the government hasn’t just happened. It’s been by design.

      For that reason alone, this nation cannot survive. The dependents are forever growing in number and influence, and they will not be denied. This nation will have to crash and then, maybe, slowly rebuild in some different form. By that time, you and I will be long dead and gone.

      The only thing to do is to attempt to live with integrity now and help likeminded people to do the same.

    • Junis

      If America was 97% ‘white’, she wouldn’t wait a day to implement socialism and a generous welfare state. The death penalty would also be mysteriously done away with.

  • White Mom in WDC

    This is part of the plan for white genocide. I bet most of the families on food stamps are minorities. White people need to stop working, start f$&king, and get Preggo. This is Osama Obama’s plan to genocide White Christians. We need to stop being response single and start being irresponsible. Lets get some white babies out there and bankrupt this system that is our to screw whitey. Get your money out of the banks.

    • Sick of it

      When this economy crashes, the dollar will become worthless paper. That’s part of the plan.

        As are massive black and brown riots with whites as the main target. Blacks and browns are being primed to do this right now so they’ll be ready when the time comes.

    • Ella

      You have a good point. By the time that Americans figured out the welfare game, the current laws have made applying for entitlements much easier today for exploiting the system. White Middle Class is older -avg. 41 yrs. old- and cannot reproduce at a high fertility rate. When we were more fertile like in the 80’s and 90’s, many States still had surplus budgets due to TIGHT welfare criteria and higher federal taxes. We’re too late to “get on the bandwagon” unless you want to see 50 year old pregnant.

      The whole system will crash soon regardless if we play honest. Most people in here are bitter because they behaved responsibly and did not place demands on others.

  • Stan D Mute

    The clear MAJORITY of Americans today receives more in government benefits than it pays in taxes. It’s NOT just food stamps. It’s government make-work jobs like all the alphabet soup agencies both state and federal, it’s the university and college employees everywhere but Hillsdale, it’s the workers for companies that do just government contracting work, it’s the farmers who are paid not to farm or paid to grow specific crops, it’s the workers for companies that make things the government buys, it’s Wall Street that grows richer because the Fed continues buying $85 Billion a month in bonds nobody else is foolish enough to buy.

    The fundamental flaw of the Constitution is in allowing these innumerable parasites the “right” to vote. If you study Western political theory, you learn that Government, in its simplest definition, is a surrogate family of sorts. Its primary purposes are to protect its weakest members and defend the whole. Just as no real family may be run by the children or enfeebled elderly, no government will ever survive when it grants those who are the protectees or the provided the ability to call the shots. Only those entirely within the private sector, receiving zero government benefits, jobs, or purchase orders should ever have had a say in governance.

    The point of no return passed long ago.

    • Vercingetorix

      Yes, spot on. The leviathan squanders more and more wealth and precious resources. With the government moving ever leftward, there’s no end in sight. I envy my parents and grandparents, growing up and thinking that the world would be better. That there would be true progress. Not anymore.

      Now, we have a 3rd world future to look forward to.

    • Sick of it

      Actually the Founders limited voters to free white men with property. The progressives changed the laws over time.

      • IstvanIN

        The only people who should be allowed to vote are those with a stake in its survival as a viable nation.

        • Sick of it

          The Founders did not want to accept anyone as an American citizen who did not believe in our way of life or who would not support our Constitution. Obviously at least half of the country today would not have been considered Americans by the Founders themselves (probably a lot more than that, truth be told).

      “…the farmers who are paid not to farm or paid to grow specific crops…”

      Know why farmers drive 4 x 4’s? To remind them that they only work 4 weeks in spring and 4 weeks in fall.

  • Jefferson

    I wonder what percentage of households in Detroit for example have an EBT Card ?

    • Whitetrashgang

      As soon as you enter Detroit you get a EBT card, funeral home card, bullet proof vest and a jar of vasoline.If you can read and right you are escorted to city limits and banned for life.

  • MBlanc46

    We need gainful employment for every able-bodied citizen. Alas, it would take a revolution to achieve that.

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    The sad thing is, is that programs like this that get greatly abused by most people who use them, make the small percentage who need them justifiably, look bad.

    People need to understand that, especially during bad economies like this, there are plenty of well meaning white people who have to use stuff like this temporarily while looking for work. It is just like when well meaning white people have to temporarily go on unemployment, something they have already paid into anyways. Unemployment is nothing like welfare.

    There are some high and mighty people in this movement who have stories like “oh, I have been working since I was 16, and have never been out of work”. Well, good for you. Either you were fortunate enough to go into the right profession, or your family owns a business, or something. Don’t lump the decent white people out there who temporarily are out of work through no fault of their own, in with the majority of people who abuse these social safety nets.

    • I applied for food stamps back in 2010, but I was told that since I own my own house, I wasn’t poor. I thought programs like these were intended to keep folks from losing their homes.

      Maybe I’m the wrong color.

      • Ella

        If you have more children, you could possibly qualify based on # of dependents and your income level . You have to look at the table to see how many children will help you qualify for federal assistance. Many of us would have to have six plus children. Some people have larger families, adopt or foster children out of a good heart I hope.

    • Sick of it

      My MPA is so much worthless paper, that much is certain.

    • JohnEngelman

      During the 1960’s as the unemployment rate declined, welfare benefits became more generous and easier to qualify for. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of blacks quit low wage jobs, and went on welfare. Whites are less likely to behave that way.

      • MBlanc46

        And a lot of those low-wage jobs just disappeared.

        • JohnEngelman

          Blue collar jobs with good wages and benefits have disappeared even more. What has increased has been corporate profits.

          • MBlanc46

            And those two conditions are not merely coincidental.

  • Kathy M

    Food stamp usage at an all time high and the genius in the White House can’t get 20 million poverty-stricken immigrants into the U.S. fast enough.

    • JohnEngelman

      Both parties are complicit on immigration. Republican politicians want to import low wage workers to please their campaign contributors in the business community.

  • dd121

    Why would anybody on food stamps, welfare, et al ever vote for a Republican who promises to take that away? This, in its simplest form, is why Republicans will never win another nation-wide election.

  • Wethepeople

    And then.. atlas shrugged.

  • Neuday

    “nearly” bankrupt? “Many” immigrants are uneducated and low skilled?

    We are most certainly bankrupt. We owe more than we have, or can produce.

    Nearly all immigrants are uneducated and low skilled, and the ones who aren’t are here to take jobs, especially IT and medical jobs, away from educated, skilled Americans.

    Our labor, the productive capacity of our lives, is being devalued by those who own capital. I wonder who those people are.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      That is easy enough to figure out. When you see who are the ones nobody dares to criticize, you’ll know who not only controls the capital but the country. Control of capital and control of the country cannot be divorced, one cannot exist without the other.

  • CourtneyfromAlabama

    I agree. I put up two posts above going into this sort of thing. If America were an all white country with a smaller population, social safety nets would be a good thing, as everyone would be paying into the system anyways. If our welfare system was regulated the way unemployment is regulated, it would be used more responsibly, and only a small percentage of people would temporarily be on it at a time.

    I agree with what you are saying, and while I by no means am a social liberal, or a liberal in any sense of the word, I will say that I am tired of Republican politicians getting on TV and referring to unemployment as welfare. And meanwhile all these high and mighty white supporters who have been in a secure job their whole life, sit and nod their heads. Just wait. Just wait until the economy gets worse and they see what it is like to lose a job through no fault of their own. I have been there.

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    “We” do not continue to admit more immigrants, the anti-whites who have the reigns of power do. The goal of importing hoads of uneducated, unemployable immigrants is to destroy white America.
    I don’t recall voting on this issue directly.

  • MBlanc46

    Food stamps, etc., are a response to the elite’s running the national economy for their own benefit instead of for the benefit of all those who participate in it, or want to participate in it.

  • MBlanc46

    Depends on what you mean by sane. If you’re in agribusiness or meatpacking and want a continuous stream of low-wage employees, it makes perfect sense.

  • newscomments70

    EBT cards, section 8, welfare and medicaid, have driven up the prices of everything for real people. It’s almost impossible to make ends meet on a working class salary now. In the past, a working class salary could buy cars, health care and a mortgage on a starter house. These welfare programs are killing the middle class. What was upper middle class is now lower middle class…stuck with paying for everyone else. Anyone who is not making six figures is poor. The democrats brought you this.

  • IstvanIN

    The Republicans only back down when something very stupid, like the Dream Act, is proposed. There day to day modus operandi is anti-white.

  • MBlanc46

    But that only leaves everything as it is: millions of illegals already here and millions more coming.

  • IstvanIN

    Absolutely correct, FS was originally a farm support program, not a social program. I was taught that in college many years ago.

  • Spartacus

    Oh, give me a break with the nobel prizes. Many of those are based on either jewish networking or for things that aren’t even quantifiable, they’re for so called “literature” like the filth written by Nabokov or the wretch Nadine Gordimer :

    • Whitetrashgang

      Jews rule the world because in the 13 century or so whites thought it was unclean to handle money and let the jews do it. Every thing else flows from that. All they are are is the worlds biggest parasities.

  • Hans Schneider

    foodbanks and welfare only for people that agree to be sterilized !

  • Junis

    Jews are not a chosen people because they did 9/11 and falsely blamed this on Muslims. It seems a disproportionate amount of Jews are involved in financial crime. The richer you are, the more easy it is to be more intelligent. Their perceived intelligence superiority has come about through financial benefits.

  • LudwigvonDrake

    The relatively high IQ of Jewish people is certainly an advantage that they have in any society, but a bigger advantage for them is their financial wisdom. Jews are the masters of the wealth creation process that the world knows as capitalism. More empirical data to support your point is that Jews comprise 15 – 25% of the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans during an given year. They also comprise over 40% of Americas billionaires, all of this while representing a mere 2% of the American population.

    Speaking of benefits abuse: a colleague came back from her break and reported the following: she’d stopped to use a public bathroom next to the psych crisis unit. While using the toilet, my colleague overheard one woman discussing with another her scheme to be admitted to hospital.
    Was she ill? No. Another kind of problem.
    It was near the end of the month, EBT card maxed, welfare check spent, she’s broke.
    The Plan: stagger into the E.R., weep and wail, pull her hair, tell the assessment team of concrete plans to commit suicide.
    Problem solved, a bed in the psych unit, free room and board until that next check arrives. This happens all the time.

  • Wethepeople

    That is most definitly not a lie. Republicans are corpratists. Their only motivator is cash, and cheap laber equates to massive paychecks.

  • Spartacus

    The European Union is a “world power” ? LOL !
