http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2010/12/08/food-stamp-rolls-continue-to-rise/ I told one brainwashed ignorant relative of mine 2 weeks ago that in this so called "recovery" the number of Americans on foodstamps is about 43 million people currently... 1 in 7 people or so... she said that this was another "conspiracy story" and how it was all "propaganda" and that they "don't believe it." I tell em that it's the governments own damn figures, and that all they had to do was LOOK on the numbers, and you could see the intellectual cowardice in this person when their perfect bubble pops, FEAR of the truth... just keep thinking happy happy thoughts, and that will keep you warm and feed. Don't worry about a growing wave of poverity in America, because it's not true as long as you "believe" it's not... like how some people "believed" the earth was flat too. Also, does anyone find it interesting that DC has the HIGHEST % in their population on food stamps.. .OVER 21% can't even feed themself! But don't scare the sheeple... let them watch more dancing with the stars, snooki, PS3, and let them fill their faces with more junk while this ship sinks, thinking happy happy thoughts.
