The Food Stamp Army

July 10, 2013 by  

The Food Stamp Army

When people get hungry, they get desperate. History shows that desperate people do desperate things. But not to worry in America; food stamps are keeping the people fat and happy.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 101 million people are on at least one of the 15 food assistance programs offered by the government. That’s 4 million more people than are working, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The U.S. population is estimated at just more than 316 million. This means almost one-third of America is on food assistance. Food stamps are the modern-day soup kitchens.

Despite broad pronouncements by the elected class, government functionaries and government propagandists that the U.S. economy is improving, America remains mired in a deep depression. Official unemployment has exceeded 7.5 percent for 54 consecutive months, the longest stretch on record. Of course, the real unemployment rate is 23 percent or more, according to, which measures unemployment that includes long-term discouraged workers, short-term discouraged workers, marginally attached workers and those forced to work part-time because they can’t find full-time employment. For blacks — particularly young, poorly educated blacks — the rate is much higher.

The economy is being propped up with money printing called quantitative easing. It’s doing wonders for Wall Street and the banksters. Everything the government is doing is crushing what’s left of the middle class and small business.

The government is and has been at war with the American people with its money printing, which dilutes their savings and the value of their “money.” When the money printers print bales of paper money, the dollars already in circulation become worthless. Anybody should understand this debauching of the currency translates to widespread impoverishment.

As long as people get their food stamps, they remain fat and happy. But what happens if the food stamps are cut off for one reason or another? How far do you have to stretch your imagination to think of these 101 million people as a “Food Stamp Army?” They certainly will become an army of terror, stealing and pillaging for food within just a few days.

    Then there must be an equal number on corporate welfare,Wall Street gambling, big oil stealing,and the 1% with their hands out for more tax freeloading. Seems food should be the least of anyone’s worries.

    Some of these people deserve assistance, others abuse the system. But the lack of jobs is due to the Government. They have been pushing companies out of America for a great many years. Higher regulations, fines, taxes, now health care. If a business can’t make a profit then whats the point.? The Government knows this and systematically finds more reasons to push them out. With companies gone,, more people a forced to depend on the Government. Another push towards Socialism.

    I agree that some need the help and like most anything else some take advantage. Of the system. Not sure it’s the intent of government to drive big business out of the country, because most of them take unneeded advantage if the tax code and lobby congress for off shore havens. As for the health care law I’ll wait and see. Is smog, dirty water,and in some cases unsafe working conditions a fair trade off for no regulations? Can an American worker live on Chinese wages?

    I’ve wondered this same thing about drug testing everyone on welfare. It’s scary to think, what might happen…

    Re:army of food stamps! Who’s fault is it the Governments, if course to have then on some kind of systems.( abd to all that complain of tge illegal on the food stamps army is due to monkey see monkey Do this is wgat America is leading foreigners to come and stand in line .But if this so conservative government would put this people to work in any think mean while they get bk on there feet! But is not going to happen.Because most so called Americans don’t even know the meaning ok work, but do want to blabber mouth others that come to this country and serve the nation with hands on ! How convenient is to blame Mexicans that there’s no jobs due to mexicans legal or illegal , but they work to support the more than one third of the American population ,so go ahead and whine! While illegals shine

    If food stamps were cut off, there would be a complete break down of the civil society. Martial law would be imposed and America would no longer exist, just a tyrannical government. If martial law would happen to fail, the US would break down into many different State. Welcome to Dark Ages 2.0.

    • Ron r

      The same could be said about the elimination of Medicare,social security ,or corporate welfare. The only way to get congress moving is for the people to demand term limits.
