DHS Preparing For November 1st Food Riots

Food STamp Frenzy


The Department of Homeland Security is spending $80 million to batten cities down in anticipation of riots on November 1. The November 1 date is when the cuts to the food stamp program begins. The SNAP program, a supplemental food program that began with the 2009 stimulus bill. The program is scheduled to sunset November 1.

The Department of Homeland Security expects Greece style riots as a result of this program sunset. They have issued a request for proposals for extra private security to provide assistance in the event riots break out. They are expected to be staged near the IRS and other federal buildings in New York. The original request for proposals was issued October 10th. It details the need for forces to provide Emergency Security Services (ESS).

 

The Contractor shall furnish fully qualified PSOs, management, supervision, equipment, supplies and any other cost for sustained emergency surge security force services. Deployments may be to large and small-scale events such as natural disasters, civil disturbances, or other unanticipated events on an as-needed basis.

The additional protection is to protect federal buildings from its own citizens.

Nigel Innis of Tea Party.net appeared on Cavuto today to discuss the Department of Homeland Security hires. Innis said the real problem is the miserable economy that government is restraining.  He said, “What government can give to you, government can take away. ”

Cavuto pointed out that there would not be a real decrease, but a rearrangement of benefits. Therefore, he didn’t understand why the Department of Homeland Security was expecting riots. Innis didn’t anticipate riots this cycle either. However, he did note that people have to be liberated from the yoke of big government and given an opportunity to earn a living. He said what people need was economic opportunity and a good job so they could put food on their own table.

Innis said the slaves had food stamps too, but they were called scraps from the master’s table. He said we have a crisis in the country when there are 50 million people, the equivalent of the  West Coast, on food stamps.  Innis also said the United States is on a slow march to being Western Europe. People don’t want to be on food stamps, they want government out of the way so they can earn a living.

    “People don’t want to be on food stamps, they want government out of the way so they can earn a living.” This isn’t true. There are plenty of drones who want the freebie handouts.

  • Mr.Gee Marino

    If We want to Burn Down OUR Buildings, that’s None of their Goddam Business. This Country Belongs to US. FUCK the Government!

  • James84708

    How can a Tea Party.net spokesperson be black? I thought that the Tea Party was billed as a racist, black-hating group akin to the KKK (paging Rep. Grayson). #FAIL

  • Dr. Obvious

    “People don’t want to be on food stamps, they want government out of the way so they can earn a living.”

    I beg to differ. I think recent event highlighted the fact that a LOT of people love them some free food.

  • Angermanagement

    The Tea Party is all races. The liberals are the racist, they are evil and do not care about America. The Tea Party has never been about anything other than protecting the constitution and America from domestic enemies.

  • Larry Launer

    Soylent green anyone? Dem boons be goin all getto when da gobment takes da food stamps

  • Scott M. Billings

    You are being sarcastic I hope, right?

  • Scott M. Billings

    Nope, wrong. They want their food stamps and their Obama phones. :/

  • bigokie

    confused well it looks like it .why would you raise hell about a program that feeds american children?that was one of the better ideas that came out of washington in a few years

  • disabled father of 2

    what?? english please lol…

  • Stephanie McCarthy Piddock

    FACT: most people on food stamps WORK!!!!!!!!!!! Stop regurgitating the lazy drug-addicted welfare-loving poor people MYTH. Even the Pope knows you right wingers are all mentally ill. Poor people need our help, not our scorn & disdain. Please seek the help you desperately need.

  • Charles Hill

    We will see, the future will not lie.

  • Charles Hill

    Some Blacks hate themselves!!!!

  • Charles Hill

    It will be enlightening,

  • Charles Hill

    You think it is all Blacks. But time will tell.

  • Jason Welch

    Sending billions to Islamic radicals while spending millions in security to deal with your own hungry people? This won’t last long. I smell a revolution…

  • Charles Hill

    you think it is all blacks that need food stamps but time will tell.

  • Mark Caldwell

    I don’t care if they are working, my taxe dollars should not be feeding them. They need to pay on that debt binge your Obamassiah has been on, 5 Trillion in 5 years.

    LIberals are petty tyrants, they want disarmed obedient slaves, forcing collectivist totalitarianism down their throat. Demanding that it be a moral obligation to have the government act on our behalf in everything.

    They won’t blame all Muslims for a car bombing or demand cars be only for military and police, but they damn sure will demand civilian disarmament for all Americans when one psycho goes into an unarmed crowd and has their way with them. Psycho degenerates. Authoritarian demagogues. Get Bent.

  • Mark Caldwell

    Al qeada sent a thank you letter to Obamamugabe, thanking him for the free weapons in Syria & South of the border in Mexico, the wide open border, and the push to disarm the evil Christian patriots.

  • Josh

    Charles, look up Allan West. If he would run for President I would gladly vote for him. Enlighten your self please

  • Josh

    Charles, ignorance is part of the problem. There is every race on stamps but stats show blacks are ahead of whites by 1% http://www.statisticbrain.com/welfare-statistics/

  • Larry Launer

    Charles , No , not all blacks , just a lot of them , I worked in supermarkets for 30 years , I saw who had the stamps ,

    Disabled , translation —– “Take away their food stamps and the inner city blacks will riot and burn down their own neighborhoods”

  • Larry Launer

    I worked in supermarkets , I saw a whole lot of people that SHOULD NOT have been on food stamps , skin color does seem to be a huge factor in who gets the stamps

  • Larry Launer

    And it feeds a whole lot of mexican anchor babies that shouldn’t even be here, Get rid of them and maybe we could start to take care of our own poor

  • Larry Launer

    The part where that survey is flawed is that they count hispanic as White, Take the mexican anchor babies out of the mix and blacks outnumber whites 2 to 1 on the food stamp rolls, Thats the part nobody ever tells you

  • Larry Launer

    You mean the future where blacks and mexicans take out the whites? Then you and the mexicans can fight over the spoils. Many of us see it coming.

  • Aesop Jones

    “People don’t want to be on food stamps, they want government out of the way so they can earn a living.”

    You are giving the rabbit-people a lot of credit.

  • Levi Peterson

    Well most don’t know this but neither the Tea Party or the Republicans have anything to do with the KKK. The KKK was founded Democrats. Don’t let them try to give you that wish washy bullshit about how the the ideologies of the 2 parties have switched roles since then cause it’s bullshit. Just another way for liberals to blame their own actions on someone else

  • StephanieVa

    You are mean and bitter Larry. Did someone take your snap benefits away and make you H-angry? (Hungry + Angry).

  • StephanieVa

    You first Larry, you have nothing positive to contribute.

  • StephanieVa

    Most the folks I know who get benefits are white and rural. Regardless who cares? People are bitter because people are getting food? Not like they are giving away luxury yachts or something? Seriously, people are envious of other people getting some Frosted Flakes? For real … some of you folks are seriously going to the hot place and 1 hour on Sunday does not atone for your hateful and mean spirited rhetoric.

  • StephanieVa

    90% of white people in rural areas are on food stamps.

  • StephanieVa

    The Klan called …. they want you to join Larry.

  • Jerrie Hayley Klenk

    Stephanie, are you one of the illegal/undocumented people here.. making a living off of our welfare system?

  • Jerrie Hayley Klenk

    No, but they if they have enough kids, they are getting luxury vehicles…. where are you and how can you be for the career welfare benefit abusers?

  • Baconator

    It’s almost like the government is trying to provoke riots.

  • Baconator

    Bullshit, site your sources bottom feeder

  • D&D

    they are not taking away the food stamps they are cutting back down to the amount they had been at before 2009.. i don’t know what the cut per a person or house hold.. a friend of mine told me they will be getting cut by about $20 bucks a month per a person.. i don’t understand why any one getting them would riot over a small amount being cut from the program especially if they have known the cut would take place as my friend told me they got a letter telling them about the extra help and when it would end back before the money was added.. i guess we will see when the money gets put on their cards if they are trying to attack people over a small cut which i highly doubt. now if they cut them out all together i could see people getting upset worried about feeding their kids etc.. but to risk jail or being injured over a small cut?? that seems like lies made up to worry and scare both sides of this.

  • Bill Berger

    It’s all been made WAY too friggin’ “easy” for them.
    Here’s a prime example: I myself, have a 37 year old son, who refuses to quit smoking dope (this eliminates him from any viable job market), he lives with his younger brother, along with his girlfriend who just had a baby, who works his ass off (referring to my youngest son), and now the oldest boy has a 1 month old child.
    He refuses to go look a job, “I” have personally FOUND him several jobs, he wont go apply himself. He’s rather set around and play video games from 9:00 or 10:00 in the a.m. when he decides to get his sorry ass up (after playing video games till well into the early hours of the next morning) and blame his failures on everyone BUT himself.
    Personally, I hope they shut down the entire damned system, and his little brother is about sick of supporting him also.
    Let him be tossed out, I sure don’t give a damn. He wasn’t RAISED like that, but his proclivity to hanging around his doper friends have led him down this path. I don’t feel sorry one bit for him.
    Years ago, when the KKK was brought into existence, they would deal with this type of young man twice. The third time, they just ended up “missing”.
    Maybe it’s time for a re-emergence of the REAL Klan.
    Makes myself and his mother so sick, the way he acts.

  • Larry Launer

    Your dead wrong and its not denying food to starving people, I see them getting these for hoards of anchor babies , also blacks that are able bodied , there is work available , they don’t want it,

  • Larry Launer

    I’ve never collected a dime in welfare in over 40 years of working , yes , I’ve worked for every dime I have , I didn’t sneak over a border or claim to be a victim of something that happened 150 years ago , I took care of me and mine ,

  • Larry Launer

    Your smoking crack , its inner city blacks and illegal aliens through their anchor babies that are using most of the bennys

  • Larry Launer

    My tax dollars have contributed to these moochers for 40 years , I’ve paid my bill

  • Larry Launer

    The Dems started the Klan , most people have half a clue as to that , Me , I just want the illegals kicked bloody to the curb and deported and all the boons made to work for their food

  • Larry Launer

    And lots will be there with their hands out as long as the govt keeps giving it away , I prefer going back to the grapes of wraith days , either work or starve , If the churches want to hand out charity , fine , thats how it use to be , not my responsibility ,

  • bigokie

    don’t matter how hard you worked Larry i’ve worked hard all my life to but the snap program was feeding kids that needed it and most of them are americans but it don’t fit you Democrats agenda so you want to get rid of it hell even most republicans like support it

  • Charles Hill

    Really!!! how could you possibly call Hispanics white is census that senile. or

  • Charles Hill

    My point . thanks!!!

  • Charles Hill

    This is to push citizens to rebel, so they can start the mass executions. time is near!!!

  • Charles Hill

    It did not start 150 years ago it started thousands of years back and any one that knows know. but you that do not then that is what it is.

  • Teresa Crisp

    They want rioting so they can empliment martial law.

  • Charles Hill

    and that is a shame, They should expand their horizons. Is that what you are saying?????

  • Charles Hill

    Time will tell. Do not just watch the news???

  • Charles Hill

    Meth is a hell of a drug, Huh?

  • Charles Hill

    Boons !!!!! how is it in your world? I bet it is a scary place.

  • Rodney Kelly

    CHARLES HILL its not that your skin is black its because most of your race supports the terrorist Obama cause of his skin color but dont realize he does not care about you or anyone else besides terrorist muslims…..

  • Rodney Kelly

    To guest with the heart pic you can kiss my republican ass, just because you support communism and to take away our constitutional rights and us republicans want to keep our rights does not make us ill…. I do not owe you or anyone else anything I pay my taxes and my bills I am kind to others and wish all LEGAL CITIZENS THE AMERICAN DREAM….. So save your hate speech got that ….

  • Bitch

    What I find strange about this article is they know exactly where people are going to riot??? Does that not seem odd to anyone else, can you say staged event!

  • Stratavari

    A thought: How the heck can one stupid issue like food stamps turn into a racial blog of stupidity. Wake up and smell the coffee, there are tons of people that get food stamps that have lost jobs or elderly. the ones that abuse the system are the ones to busy getting high and not wanting to work. So think before you type and create a bunch of racial BS. P.S- Ted Nugent for President

  • Heather Evans

    Maybe more people would be willing to work if there were jobs for them. I am stressed out already.. Unemployment is ending for me. I have as many rejection letters for jobs as Carter has liver pills. I have applied to every low wage, retail, burger flipping, fast food place. Gas stations, grocery stores, you name it. I get the same answer… I am over qualified. Just because I have a Legal Secretary Diploma and an AA Degree, doesn’t mean I don’t feel the pinch or need a job. I even applied to walmart. the same day I got the rejection email, I ended up having to go to Walmart. Guess what, I was stuck waiting for over 45 minutes for someone to help me. I was informed that they were short staffed as all their wrokers for that area came down sick.. I was rejected! I could have started work that day, I could have been a back up for help. But no, I was Over Qualified again.. And people tell me to get a job! I would love to get a job, there are none out there. I spend every working hour, online and on the phone applying for positions. I get a total of 4 rejection letters a day! I even job hunt on Saturday and Sunday. I am angry, frustrated, upset, irritated and above all sick of all these people saying EVERYONE on food support is lazy!!! I do get food assistance. It is now only $15. But it helps. I pay my own rent, phone, insurance, utilities, internet. I don’t get free phone, I don’t get heat assistance, I don’t get help at all. I struggle daily and weekly trying to support my duaghter and myself. It isn’t fun to go to the food shelf and admit you do not have the ability to provide for your family. It isn’t fun to have to ration what you and your child eat because there may not be any food left. This year is the first year of my 18 years of working life that I am in trouble. No temp agency openings. No reduced wage jobs available to me. No part-time jobs here either. I look for positions over 1 hour away. Yet, I get the rejection letters. If you want a famine in Minnesota, please take the food support away. And then, when that happens, I will find out where all of you live and camp out on your lawn and beg for food. In my worn out and holey coat and shoes, hand me down hats and mittens… my child in a hand me down coat too…. A lot of people would love to be off assistance and workeing. There are no jobs available. One idea is to create the jobs first and once we all have jobs, then take away the food support! See not all of us on food support get cash assistance,,, With what I get, I can buy 15 cans of spaghetti-os, chicken noodle soup and Mac’N”Cheese and Peanut Butter!! From the dollar store! I don’t get this assistance free either. I have to prove that I am looking for a job! I have tons of papers that fill notebooks of jobs I have applied to. And then the rejection letters fill another notebook! Intolerance is what caused the Holocaust. I predict we will have another one in a short period of time. Bleak future for those of us educated, white, middle aged people who have skills… You want us to get jobs, create or hire us to work. The more we work the less we use your resources!! Just Saying

  • bringsomesanity

    Larry, I agree we need to stop the tide of illegal aliens. As far as your other comment…there are plenty of ALL races who have become dependent on the government. It is not a racial thing, it is a mentality. We need to require these people get jobs so they are not dependent on the government. I am tired of them making a living off of my hard work.

  • bringsomesanity

    Charles, it is not all blacks. There are people of all races who make it their lifes purpose to live on welfare.

  • bringsomesanity

    Charles, hispanic is an ethnic group within the caucasian (white) race.

  • bringsomesanity

    Charles, I have some very good friends who are black. They are offended as I am at all the people, no matter the race, who life off welfare because they don’t want to work. Not everyone is racist like you seem to think they are.

  • bringsomesanity

    Stephanie, we are not against people getting a helping hand. We are against people making a living of being on government assistance. I object to my hard work going to support their lazy asses.

  • bringsomesanity

    Stephanie, I live in a rural area. Almost everyone here, no matter what race, is ashamed to ask for help. The people in rural areas do not believe that hard working people owe them a living. They have been taught that you work for what you get. It is the people in the cities who have the welfare mentality.

  • Heather Evans

    Dear Larry, there may be work available, but the employers keep turning us down. I am a White, Educated, Degreed, Middle Aged Woman with One Child. I want to work. I apply for everything I can find even jobs I am not qualified for just in case they change their mind, I get lots of rejection letters, yet, I still apply… I look for jobs even over 1 hour away. I have worked steadily for over 18 years. Until the Engineering company I worked for Permanently laid me off due to lack of orders.. I have applying for positions for over 9 months. In order to survive my daughter and I (yep, I was responsible and had only one child and I had her when I was in a permanent job making 28,000 a year) have to ask for food support. I don’t have enough money to feed her. I make too much money for assistance of any kind. I maybe have $10 of my own money left for a little food. Only the basics.. Eggs, Bread and soy milk (soy milk can be bought at dollar store). How would you like it if your child was in my situation. I have no family to help me. I have no rich relatives. I even went to the local food shelf this month. I put away my pride and prayed that maybe they would have something.. extra mac’n’cheese, maybe some pasta noodles, soup maybe some veggies on the cheap… I have not seen meat in months, it is too expensive. I want a job, no one wants me. Without the food support, small though it is, it gives us a week or two of rationed food to live on. By the way, I am a natural citizen of the USA and can trace my ancestors back 4 Great Great generations. I am not happy, nor proud any longer. All I want is a job, to provide for me and my daughter on my own… Poverty and hunger are not a myth. They are real and real people struggle daily, weekly and monthly! You obviously don’t care, which is too bad. I know that when I do get a job someday, I will be eagerly donating what I can to local food shelves and any program I can so I can help. I worked for over 18 years, paying taxes, medicare, you name it! Now when i am in need, you people want to deny a little help that I also paid in for. Greedy Bastards!!!

  • Heather Evans

    I’ll vote for that!! Thank you for sticking up for us downtrodden. We won’t let you down when we get jobs.

  • Shaun Erin McConnell

    Some pretty heartless people on here, work or starve? I mean good luck finding a job anyways you idiots. Undermining your fellow Americans should be considered terrorism.

  • Shaun Erin McConnell

    Terrorist scumbag

  • Shaun Erin McConnell

    You are a racist, hope you burn in Hell.

  • Shaun Erin McConnell

    The real belligerent dumb fuck here is Larry Launer…

  • Heather Evans

    So because your son is a pot head and a rue loser in life, just to punish him, you would punish the rest of us who are hard at work trying to find non-existant jobs. Boy, if I had you for a dad and you found me a place or two to apply, believe me, I would happily apply and do my damnedest to get that job! I don’t happen to have that luxury., I have only myself and my daughter. Not all of us who ask for assistance are ungrateful. I really want a job. I really want to work and earn money to provide for me and my child. I am doing everything I am supposed to be doing and in the face of rejection, I carry on. I am sorry your son does not want to be a productive member of society. What I wouldn’t give for a job right now… to be able to hold my head up and say I did it! Instead of being a number on a chart with nothig.. No pride, no confidence, no security nothing. I can only pray that we will have enough food to last us, enough money to pay bills and that we don’t get sick! I just wish I had a job…

  • brandy

    sorry for your troubles I think what everyone is saying is they want the lazy people who live off the system to lose their stamps . so that we can help the people like yourself and your daughter who really need it

  • Heather Evans

    You are kinda right D&D. A lot of us receiving assistance did get notices. I got a dollar less. To a lot of people going from $16 to $15 a month isn’t a big deal. To me it is. Instead of 16 items of food for my daughter. I now get 15 items. Try to figure out whether it will be a box of mac’n’cheese, a can of chicken noodle soup, a can of spaghetti-os or a loaf of bread. All of which are purchased at the dollar store. It is very hard to decide what she should go without. oh well, maybe someday, someone will hire me again and I can get out of this nightmare! Not of my own choosing either!!

  • Heather Evans

    Yeah, I wish I knew how those abuserd do it! Because I am white, have 1 child, have an education and worked for over 18 years, I get audited each and every month. If i so much as receive an extra anything, I get cut off from medical and eveyrhting. Like when i had to liquidate my small IRA. It put me over my limit by $50. I had no other income! I am tracked and audited for every move I make… I wish I knew how to get those luxury items. My car is almost dead, my cell phone is older than dirt, my shoes have holes and my coat is so old, it is about to fall apart!! What part of MOOCHER am I???

  • AtsilaKamama

    You know, it’s easy to forget about disabled vets, senior citizens, and those who are temporarily down on their luck (you know, the people the system was actually designed for) when mainstream media is constantly bombarding folks with story after story about welfare queens, most recently the mass looting at a Louisiana Walmart store by generational EBT recipients.

    That said, I think we all know exactly what types of people are the target of those who are posting angrily, and rightfully so. People are sick of the rampant abuse with no sign of major reforms or punishment for intentional gaming of the system! People who are lucky enough to have a decent paying job are having a difficult time putting food on their own tables!

  • AtsilaKamama

    I did wonder that myself. Why only NY? Although I did see an article today that Alabama is seeking to request similar back-up? Strange indeed.

  • Raymond A Higgins

    CHARLES I DO BELIEVE YOU ARE ON TO SOMETHING THERE. RACE IS NOT THE ISSUE. STUPIDITY COMES IN ALL RACES. PAY NO MIND TO THAT IGNORANT POS.

  • Raymond A Higgins

    I AGREE WELFARE WAS MEANT TO BE A SECOND CHANCE TO HELP PEOPLE GET BACK ON THEIR FEET, NOT A CAREER.

  • Julie Anne Long

    my daughter and husband have 1 child cause they dont believe inbringing children into the world if you cant support them and shes 9 now.things turned sour when they both lost their jobs on base at the same time.they moved to a small town and he found a job, it covers the bills and such but not much left for food so recently they needed to ask for assistance. they wont be rioting come nov 1st, they are happy for what help they got. they ar enow 31 and have been working since 15., and paid for what they have. not all ppl live off them for years. some just need some help to get back on their feet.i used to work for hrs inorlando and would hear ppl bitching about how they should quit their jobs so they can get more help. they would ask me why shouldnt they quit, i just bluntly told them, that it would give their children pride and show that hard work pays off. i have even seen where ppl would leave my job area and go to the corner store down from us and pay for other things thats not permitted on food stamps, its those ppl who abuse the program that was set up to help ppl out not for them to live on that makes it hard for ppl who truly need them for a short period of time to get them. and yes i have seen elderly ppl get turned away unless they would sign their house away when they died and give to an illegal who was pregnant.along with free medical. so i see it from both sides of the coin

  • Dr. Obvious

    hunger is a great motivator

  • Dr. Obvious

    gee I would think you would be the first to complain that the lazy are cheating you out of the help you would like.

  • Dr. Obvious

    you must be a mind reader

  • Leftus Maximus

    “racist” is a term invented by leon trotsky to deny russians ethnic pride. this was to make them weak, disorganized and to feel guilty about their heritage so they couldnt unite & stop their rulers.

    stop sounding like a communist.

  • Leftus Maximus

    i went with a female friend to the food stamps place to get assistance for her and her kids. her husband is dead. we were sitting there for 6 hours and saw many veterans and WHITE people turned away. these people looked like they hadnt had new clothes in years, meanwhile all the blacks and mexicans in their fancy 300$ shoes and designer hip-hop clothes were being pandered to at every chance.

    you can really tell how much preference they get when an able bodied adult healthy black male with an iphone and expensive clothes got as much assistance as my friend did with 2 kids.

    how do i know how much everyone was getting? groups of blacks in public places tend to get loud and they were talking about it, bragging and acting like it was unfair when one got a few bucks more than the other on his food stamps card.

  • Jerrie Hayley Klenk

    Your problem is you only have one child.. have 8, 9 or 10 kids and you could afford the new luxury car.. ask any “moocher” they will tell you! (btw, I did not use that term, YOU did!)

  • John Gahris

    Which leaves plenty of leeway for incomplete data-sets. One percent is hardly noteworthy.

  • John Gahris

    Denying history is a similar tactic to defer blame. Fun fact? Both parties make claims about how the two parties have switched, because both have long histories of corruption. Best part? If you knew the party stances of the era, you’d know that the Reps of the past think like the Dems of the present, and vice-verse! Long and short? Yours is but another baseless claim, likely a forgery of your mind, to vilify other villains, as though it will make your party look better. Really, if you support a party in the first place, you’re just one more part of a virulent problem.

  • John Gahris

    Not to nitpick, but you seem awful bent on mostly unfounded implications of prejudice. It’s a common trait in individuals with strongly racist mindsets to infer racism in others. Where better to hide a candle than an illusory inferno?

  • John Gahris

    Well said. However, it’s important to mention the disabled, who are unable to work. They have no choice in the matter. Without benefits, they die off really quickly. Good for the healthy, until they pass on. Then God gets a hold of their souls, and slams them to hell like an oxidized super-ball. That means ending the program may be efficient, but not morally sound. I do believe they should restrict how much and how long the able-bodied and able-minded stay on benefits, though, so that long-term benefits can be more focused to the disabled.

  • Angelgirl54

    I wish I could find the article, or would have saved it…but…I read
    in a newsletter designed for law enforcement that some one of Arabic
    descent went undercover and infiltrated one of those Muslim terrorists
    training camps here in the States. He reported that all of them receive
    welfare and send much of it back to Pakistan as well as having their own
    laws and treating their women like dogs which is nothing new. The women
    were kept pregnant, one after the other because the more children you
    have the more you get!

  • Angelgirl54

    I totally agree Raymond. Charles sound like a very honest and intelligent man. He is aware. Has his eyes wide open.

  • Bill Berger

    Heather, forgive me if I misled you that way, it certainly wasn’t intended.
    Hopefully, and soon, you will find a job that does suit your every need.

  • Missy Q

    Jerrie, Stephanie clearly stated above that she is a natural US citizen & can trace her ancestors back several generations here in the US. And seriously is $16. a month for food making a living off of the Welfare system? I know a lot of people who can’t get jobs. Yes, it appears that there are jobs out there. Lots of jobs. But the longer you are unemployed the harder it is to get an employer to hire you. I also think that age is a factor. If you are over 30 I think your chances of finding employment are reduced. So, until some of you have been in that situation I’d suggest you Not group everyone in as a bunch of Lazy ass welfare sucking people. I was laid off & couldn’t get another job for well over 7 months. Because I had worked out of state it took nearly 4 months just to get less than $200 a week in unemployment. I had to borrow $ from friends, live from couch to couch. I sold nearly everything I owned except my car while looking for another job. I am over 40, educated and have worked since I was 16. Sometimes 2 jobs. But I couldn’t even get a job at McDonalds. When you are that desperate for a job you will apply & take anything you can get. Everyone’s situation is different. The economy is Not a good as they would like everyone to believe it is. Do some ppl “live off Welfare”? Yes, but not ALL people.

  • Missy Q

    Stephanie, you are one of many thousands in the same situation. As I commented above, I know a lot of people who can’t get a job. Hard working career people who’ve lost their jobs due to lay offs or companies closing. I’ve watched people lose their homes, cars, end up in divorce. Unemployment only pays so much & not everyone qualifies for food assistance until that unemployment runs out. Hang in there, hopefully an employer will give you a chance to show them that you are a hard worker & you really want a job. I was only off work for about 7 months. I couldn’t even get a job flipping burgers at McDonalds but Thankfully finally an employer decided to give me a chance. Though it’s only minimum wage, at least it’s an income.

  • Missy Q

    Bill Berger, not Everyone who gets assistance is a doper Loser like your son. It’s people like You and Your Son that have created this mass hatred of the people who are receiving assistance that truly need it. Maybe You should get involved and try helping people get jobs who really want to work. Hang out at the Welfare or unemployment office 1 day a week. If you can find jobs for your son then you could surely find jobs for the people like Stephanie who really do want to work.!

  • Missy Q

    This more likely sounds like a government created wanna-be Riot. Food Benefits are NOT ending. They’re being reduced. People who receive food stamp assistance will still get assistance, just a little bit less than previously. Not enough to create mass hysteria as the Government would like everyone to believe. And where did they get the money for this Riot preparation? I think this money could be well spent on something else.

    Funny since they are actually native americans. I have worked both of the lascensuses and both times i had to explain that hispanic is not a race neither is mexican and then explain that who their ancestors are be they spanish, french, aztec, mayan is what their race is. I hear many lazy turds didnt do their jobs though and labeled them as white.

    Our citizen’s want to be able to work, they want to keep their homes, want to have food on the table at meal time, they don’t want to be hungry and out of work. Yes, some do take advantage of the programs we have. That number is very small though.

    Look at the results from the drug testing for people applying for assistance. It’s costing those states more money! They didn’t get the results they thought they would. Less than 1% of those that came in to apply tested positive for any drugs. The drug testing was a bust.

    Poor people aren’t the ones on drugs! The states that implemented this drug testing program hired people to do to do the testing. They made the people applying pay for the tests themselves….?

    People were so quick to jump on this bandwagon. How is it fair to the poor to make them do this. This confuses me.

    Do you have a boss come up to you at work and say “hey, your name was drawn to do a random drug test, you are suspended without pay until you pay the lady in the front office for your drug test”? No, the company pays for your drug test. That’s the way it should be. If you have to take a drug test to prove you don’t do drugs the entity requiring the test should cover all expenses to do that test. Up front. No cost at all to the person having to be tested. No coming up with the money to pay at all.

    Making a poor person who can’t afford groceries come up with that much money to pay for a drug test is stupid, seriously! Don’t you think if they had that much money just sitting around they’d go buy some groceries with it? I will take a drug test every single day of the week if they want to pay for it. Up front! Not after I come back clean. This program is costing the states a LOT more. I have heard a couple of them stopped doing it because it increased their cost so much. Don’t know that’s fact though.

    Marie Antoinette was beheaded because her people were starving while she sat in her castle and lived a lavish life, other countries have been through the same thing. Our government is doing the same thing to our poor. Just how long does anyone think this is going to continue? Some day in the not too distant future we’re going to be in another war, but it’s going to be between American citizens. That’s when some other country is going to step in and take over this country. Maybe China, maybe the Middle East, but if someone gets to take us over I hope it’s England. They have a great program for health care. It’s not based on income, it’s based on need. If someone is sick and needs a doc they get to go to the doc and get treatment. Google their health care program. It’s amazing.

    Right now our government is cutting and cutting and cutting their aid to people that are trying. Filling out hundreds of applications each month, living in shelters because they lost their homes, businesses are losing hundreds of thousands of dollars because American citizens have lost their jobs and can’t pay their credit card bills or buy things.

    I am so tired of hearing the word entitlements. Get companies to keep their businesses in America so people can work, get every single illegal alien back across the border so our citizens can find jobs, make it easier for people to earn a livable income. Stop taking away from the children, the poor/low income, and the handicapped.

    I don’t know what percent of every tax dollar goes to a welfare system but I would imagine it’s less than a penny. Really, where do YOU think your tax dollar is going? Military spending? Yes! High paid government contracts? Yes! High salaries to government representatives? Yes.

    We’re on SSDI due to my husband’s health issues.He paid into this program his entire working life. It’s his money, not an “entitlement”. I work 3 part time jobs to get money to keep the kids in milk. We’re grandparents raising grandchildren and the ONLY assistance we get is their medical cards. My husband gets Medicare, the kids Sooner Care, and me? I have no insurance and do NOT have money to pay any sort of insurance premium.

    We have low income health clinics in our area, every city and county needs to have this sort of program so everyone can get health care. I pay for each visit but it’s a small amount. I think this is what we need instead of an ordered health care plan.

    I guess I’ll get off my soapbox now.

    Its when there are more of that type than the type who are fed up working their asses off to give to them….. I say scrap 100% of the welfare system, and don’t tell me a small percentage use it, It seems like 9 times out of 10 I’m in a convenience store i see some jackass pulling out their SNAP card to buy red bulls, twinkies and a bag of doritos….. real good food to be using that for.

    Or worse last night i was coming home late stopped for an energy drink, this 20 something woman in front of me has a pile of junk food on the counter, also buying cigarettes she pulls out a wad of $20 bills to buy the cigarettes but pulls the EBT card to buy the cookies doritos and 2 liters of Coke.

    You can believe that any where there will be protests there will be secret service agents so as to activate new anti protest bill and ship protesters to FEMA camps. Look in railroad yards and you WILL see FEMA trains ready to load. They have been deploying them for the past months. They mix them inwith car carriers since they look similar.

  • Bill Berger

    Well Miss Q, let me share a little something with you.
    I worked every day of my life, from age 15, and on through high school. Then, I spent my time in the service, left there and went right to work in Industrial Process Piping for 36+ years, where I was just SO damned fortunate that DuPont had created “the miracle fiber”, and was forced to retire with asbestosis.
    I raised my children, all three, with morals and ethics and a sprinkling of religion.
    My daughter is 42 and an Assistant Prosecutor, my oldest son was ALWAYS in some kind of trouble, all his life, in and out of jail, prison 3 times, etc., the youngest son is an accomplished Pipefitter/Plumber, and when he doesn’t have work available to him in that field he turns wrenches out in the shop I built for him or helps one of the neighbors who has a concrete business 3-5 days a week.
    So don’t come up in here with your “entitlement attitude” and attempt to lecture a 62 year old Nam Vet who did everything he was SUPPOSSED to do in his younger years and efforts to raise a family in a manner that is acceptable to society.
    I would suggest that if you have all that time to spend holding hands with losers at the welfare office you might need to learn to speak Islam, because at the rate this Nation is going downhill that is what you will need to learn, along with Chinese.
    Now, get off your high horse and tend to your illegitimate youngun’s.

  • Laurie

    I am sorry, I went to our local welfare office as I was paying a $619 a month Cobra that I could no longer afford and needed help. They helped me but they also MADE me take food stamps. I am now working again, thankfully and am in no need of the food stamps. BUT I am truly upset that they MAKE people take what they do not need. that is something that is wrong with the systems. I only needed help with my insurance. I have never needed help before in my life. In order to get the help I had to TAKE the food stamps. how sad I did not have to USE them but I had to Take them…….They could roll over each month and after 90 days they were taken back….

  • Kim Gohn

    people should be asking how our government can give BILLION$ to other countries ( even during recessions, gov. shut-downs etc.) but want to mess with poor people’s food stamps. Most people get stamps because of lack of available cash, now this goes back to “NO” jobs under obummers watch or less hours due to obummer care. No matter how you look at it, obummer is plunging this country into utter chaos.

    First of all… The “ad” on the PSO website has nothing to do with the LESS THAN 10% reduction in SNAP benefits due on November 1. The increase was part of Obama’s stimulus. Those that got “extra” in the last few years should just be grateful. The return to the norm isn’t going to cause anyone to starve. And if anyone riots because of it then they are just plain ghetto and deserve to be beaten down and/or go to jail. Period. Second.. This whole PSO thing, isn’t about the food stamp BS, but I’m sure that the government is happy that you think it is, so that after November 1 comes and goes without incident, you’ll forget all about it.

  • Nancy Bennett

    While I agree that food stamps need to be cut, I’m just wondering what the total dollar amount is that is being cut. If Homeland security is spending 80 million to batten down cities I sure hope the cuts are much more than that.

  • Doreen Mahoney

    If you are concerned about the needy poor not getting enough to eat because their food stamps were cut, the best way to help is to donate food to your local food bank. Its the surest way to know that your donation has gone to feed someone or some family.

    I would rather be working than on food stamps, I don’t have much of a choice, If there was a doctor with a brain in his/her head that would help me, instead of pushing pills on me that knock my ass out I would love to go back to working 50 to 60 hrs a week, We are all not like the scum suckers that live on this shit because we want to, some of us don’t get a choice, and just so you know I choose not to have a stupid Obama phone, a cell phone is a luxury and if you can’t afford it you don’t need it. I live with in my means, My youngest stay with me to take care of me, she drives my beat up old truck to take me to the doctors where they just keep running more test and giving me more pills, So don’t try to say we are all the same, I don’t get that much $190 in food stamps and $849 in disability which 140$ of that goes for medicare, the rest goes for house hold bills, I allow my self $70 a month for gas, Beings as my daughter takes care of me with out pay , and I know most would be saying the government pays for someone to take care of you , well that’s not us.. So Please don’t group us all in the same category , I wish I was working, I hate this, and I hate that everybody assumes we are all just leaches. Don’t count yourself out just yet, I worked two jobs from the time I was 14 and that don’t Include the babysitting jobs. I never wanted to be here, Its not fun its degrading, To those of us that would love to work but can’t anymore.

    When you consider the reasons that people are poor, laziness is among the reasons, but it certainly does NOT top the list. There are other reasons such as: being elderly, being disabled, simply not able to earn enough money to feed your family, being a child, being oppressed in some way (widowed, domestic violence victim, etc.). Simply because the GOP is taking their megaphone and calling out the poor to be lazy bums many times during the day doesn’t mean you need to fall for their incomplete story. In college you will be taught the full reasons as to why people are on welfare, and it more often than not includes disability as a huge factor … either the person is disabled or they are taking care of a disabled person at home. I learned this in social work undergrad classes so it is a crying shame to hear someone like Bachmann preaching that the only reason people use food stamps is because they are lazy. It is simply false.

  • Lady4Constitution

    Deuteronomy 15:7-8 If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs.

    There is MUCH wisdom in the above guidance from the Lord if you take time to really think about it. Even in a sad economy as we lost much …. we are still commanded to GIVE …. to be openhanded with our giving … why? Why wouldn’t the Lord counsel us to be protective of our food and property and money during hard times? Because God is our Provider and He never runs out. God wants us to know Him as His Provider. When we give, we get to know Him in that way, and He is able to increase our love and our faith as we walk with Him.

    Isn’t it wonderful? We are able to thus attain a peace about economics. God will improve the economy, I believe this, if we follow His instructions.

    If you enjoyed this instruction, please read Daniel chapter 4, paying close attention to Daniel’s advice given in verse 27 to the King. This is key to keeping one’s prosperity and governing seat. God wants us to have a caring attitude towards the poor, this is very very important in one’s walk with the Lord Jesus Christ … I would say it is mandatory in order to move ahead, that we have this peace, love, and assurance about monetary things.

  • Lady4Constitution

    The word of God goes completely against this approach.

    When taxes were demanded of Jesus and the disciples, even if they were too high, or unfair, Jesus paid them without protest or argument. Jesus knew His Father would provide.

    We are to have that same trusting, even knowing, attitude.

    We are not to be “tightfisted” (Deuteronomy).

    This means in our heart … dont be tightfisted in your heart.

    There you go. You are on your way now.

  • moneyfornothin

    It’s important to make sure you know how to use that sword (the Word of God) before you start swinging it at people. Jesus was not saying to never evaluate or judge other’s behavior. If this were true, the Apostle Paul and the Apostle Peter were some of the greatest offenders of this idea in the letters they wrote to early churches. People, like yourself, erroneously throw this verse out there all the time to try and shut people down from making judgments. You, yourself, judge others all the time, making moral evaluations of people’s behavior. And you should. Who else do you expect to judge? Dogs and cats? For the most part, we are rational human beings who can discern right from wrong. We can judge and come to basic conclusions. The issue is: don’t be judgmental – holding others to a standard we are unwilling to adhere to ourselves. In the future, please do a little more homework before unsheathing God’s Word. You can end up hurting yourself…and you make other followers of Jesus look bad.

  • moneyfornothin

    Lady4Construction – you are on quite a roll. :-) You seem to be implying that this Scripture somehow validates civil government providing welfare to its citizens. This was not a direction given to the civil government, but a stipulation for private citizenry and, I would add, enterprise. If ancient Israel is a foreshadowing of the New Testament Christian church, then this is a call for all followers of Jesus to care for the marginalized, poor, and those unable to care for themselves (Micah 6:8). However, this does not always equate to a monetary handout. Many welfare recipients lack self-worth, knowing that they are taking something from others that they don’t deserve and have not earned, but are fully and physically capable of doing so. “Those unwilling to work should not eat” (2 Thess. 3:10).

    My husband went back to work a year ago at almost 70. Social Security doesn’t give us enough because we took it early do to his surgery for stage 4 head and neck cancer. If he can go find a job at a newspaper at his age, the rest of these freeloaders should get out there and find themselves a job.

    Anthropologist Philip Bourgois interviewed crack dealers in East Harlem. The dealers tried on many occasions to get legitimate work. The problem was, however, that according to the dealers, the money they made at entry level jobs did not meet their needs and was less than the value of food stamps, health care and other benefits one gets while being on welfare. This suggests that there are those out there who want to leave welfare but can’t because it’ll become even more difficult to make ends meet, if not impossible.

    That’s true, man. I know families that are drawing $300 in Food Stamps, but at the same time paying that same $300 on Cable, Internet, and cell phone bills. So if they can afford all that, why not drop entertainment budget and use that $300 in cash on food and stop leeching off the government?
