    Several news sources in the last couple of days have reported that 40 million people in the US are receiving foods stamps. 40 MILLION?? That is about the total population of Argentina. How in the hell can this country survive, with that many on the dole??

    The baby boomers are just starting to draw SS, millions of fat government pensions to pay, and 40 million now on food stamps. Is there any way the US can't end up like Greece? Greece only has 11 million total population. We have 4 times that many on food stamps.

    Free=Votes The people in government wouldn't piss on a welfare person if they were on fire. Its all about votes and staying in power.Some people just don't get it.The government doesn't have any money to give out.They take it from me and you and buy votes with it through all the give away programs.I don't know what is going to happen,but the give away programs(THE DOLE)isen't going to stop,it can't.I think that the life everyone over 15 years old has known is near the end and I don't know what to do about it.

    Yeah, I can do the math, but the point was the significance of that number.

    The Greeks found out the hard way. That when you run out of other peoples money the people don't understand why they can't continue on the way they were. The Greeks have a socialist system and everyone was on the dole. No one wanted to loan them money (the other peoples money) knowing it would never get paid back.

    When the people found out they wouldn't be getting a check anymore for doing nothing they had a hissy fit.

    But Which country is gonna bail them out? You guessed it.


    We are almost at that point only no USA to bail us out this time.

    What I don't understand is "we" are comitted to 17% of the budget of the IMF.
    Almost 4 times that of the next nation.
    The IMF said they will give Greece 1 trillion $ loan. That's 17 billion from US a country that is 1 trillion and rising in debt.
    When will the house of cards fall?

    If you want to see our future look at Greece today. We have become a nation with our hands out to the government which keeps going in debt so they can buy votes by putting something in our hands. Socialism will always fail in the end. Socialism ends by you losing all your freedom and being dirt poor and dependent on the government. Obama is evil.

    A GARDEN? Are you kidding, do you know how much work that is? Do you know how dirty you get? Food stamps and the local food pantrys are the way to go. Nope I am not on the dole and my garden (30X80) is worked up and my radishes and lettuce and pototoes are coming up. The rest of the seeds are in a bag in the garage ready to go when it quits freezing. 27(F) this am in northern NY.

    Some of the southern boys have gardens, but they aren't the kind you eat.

    40 million on food stamps, 41 percent of all U.S. born babies are bastards now. Trillions of dollars in debt. The left has succeeded in destroying America. We are already dead but don't yet know it. The rest of the world isn't any better off. They have all bitten into the socialist apple. We will all go down together. I wonder who the great architect to all this is. Who is it that wants a one world government when this all collapes and we all have to turn to the government for food. Better open your Bibles and start reading. Obama is only a puppet along with all the other progressive liberal socialists in the world. I hope I can keep shooting when the world's economy collapes. Ironic isn't it, the world's non-believers are being run by a puppet master they don't even believe is real.
