Food Stamp Craze: U.S. Spends $3.6 Billion to Give $70 Billion in Benefits:
https://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2016/10/food-stamp-craze-u-s-spends-3-6-billion-give-70-billion-benefits/

Not only does the government spend a breathtaking $70 billion a year to give a record number of people food stamps, it wastes billions more to administer the bloated welfare program. Some states spend a lot more than others to distribute the free food vouchers and the discrepancies are downright outrageous. The government dedicates $3.6 billion annually just to administer food stamps (renamed Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program—SNAP to eliminate stigma), according to a federal audit that includes mind-boggling figures.

For instance, California, the state with by far the largest food-stamp roll, spends a lot more than the national average to execute the federal nutrition program. The Golden State doles out an average of $34.06 a month for each of its 2 million food stamp cases while other states, like Ohio, spend only $9.55. Some California counties are off the charts with administration costs. For instance, San Francisco County spends a whopping $73 a month administering each food stamp case. To put this in perspective, New York City spends $23 per case. The huge gap suggests “possible waste and operational inefficiencies,” according to the audit conducted.

My Commentary: The biggest food stamp fraudsters? Why, the very States who administer the program, of course! Are you surprised? I’m not… I’ve been saying this for years about ALL government-operated “assistance” programs. I don’t blame y’all for not understanding. I was only made fully-aware by my first-hand experience with the systemic corruption inherent to these government programs, as a youth, living with my family in the NYC shelter system for almost four years, starting at age twelve … But, what do I know? I’m a “naive, utopian” Voluntaryist, who foolishly believes that humanity can get along much better without sociopathic criminals ruling over us, like masters, while systematically running society into the ground… *sigh* Hopelessly pathetic, aren’t I?

This article illustrates how overbloated-bureaucracies operating in some of the country’s biggest cities are making HELLA cash in their (mis) “management” 😉 of the SNAP program – and, parasitically do so at the financial hardship of those they purport to “serve.” Also, for anyone looking at the bigger picture, this article is also an inadvertent indictment against the so-called “economic recovery” that so many head-in-the-sand dupes keep babbling about, since their have been a record number of Americans on food stamps, for years, now!

Obama’s Fallacious Attempts to Control America’s Economy Through the Red Tape of Bureaucracy Have Stifled Business and Commerce

The Obama Legacy: An Economy Choking on Red Tape:

Obama does not get business. He is a product of prep-school and then found his way into Columbia and Harvard. Then he became a “community organizer” in the Saul Alinsky tradition in Chicago. Then he became a politician. He hasn’t spent any time in the world in which most Americans live.

Indeed Obama has been downright hostile to commerce and the private sector since the beginning of his presidency. Remember the “you didn’t build that” nonsense? I mean really, anyone who has worked in the private sector, never mind started a business or made payroll, knew that the president was just woefully off base. To be kind.

Obama could almost be forgiven for the statement if it was understood that he was just trying to score political points. But It appears that the president honestly believed the “you didn’t build that” bit. And that is absurd for an adult. Sorry.

This ignorance of business, commerce, the ebb and flow of the economy, whatever one wants to call it, has colored Obama’s business policy from the outset and as such the economy has been retarded. Obama’s failure on the economy is only second to his failure on the racial front.

Long Nights With Little Sleep for Homeless Families Seeking Shelter:
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/29/nyregion/long-nights-with-little-sleep-for-homeless-families-seeking-shelter.html

(Nikita Stewart) On Wednesday, New York City hit a record 59,373 people in shelters overseen by the Department of Homeless Services.

There is no clearer indicator of the homelessness crisis than in the Bronx at the intake center for families with children, where on a recent Saturday morning at 7:30, Larissa Galindo had just gotten off the bus from a temporary shelter.

“We’re tired,” Ms. Galindo, 19, said, burying her face in her hands and trying to wipe the sleep and frustration from her eyes. Unique, her 1-year-old daughter, looked up from a stroller. They had left the center, known as PATH, short for Prevention Assistance and Temporary Housing, four hours earlier.

My Commentary: I didn’t think it was even possible, but the NYC family shelter system actually found a way to replace their nightmare EAU situation with something far more torturous and dehumanizing. The State continues to target the vulnerable in the name of “assistance.”

Some Perspective on the Real Problem Effecting America’s Economy

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Emancipated Human,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

American Government Orders Hundreds of Millions of Pounds of Food to be Destroyed Every Year

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned photo, being shared by an acquaintance from here, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Santucci Farm – Traverse City Cherries: These cherries are beautiful! But, we have to dump 14% of our tart cherry crop on the ground to rot. Why? So we can allow the import of 200 million pounds of cherries from overseas! It just doesn’t seem right. What do you think? Please share this on your Facebook page🍒🍒🍒. Just to let everyone know we are not allowed to donate or in any way use diverted cherries. I have people who would buy them if I could sell them. Also these are tart cherries with a very short shelf life

And, during the “Great Depression,” the State ordered hundreds of millions of pounds of food be destroyed to artificially boost market prices, even while millions of Americans spent years starving.

THIS is the Nature of the State…
