    The beat down begins in earnest?

     

    It appears to be a very methodical take down of America. After decades of preparation all institutions in government and corporations have all positions filled with appropriate personnel and are institutionally and legally arranged and ready for the take down. The take down begins in earnest by first eviscerating the most vulnerable.

    This is pretty darn amazing, but I`ll bet both Massa Bongo Bongo and Boehner are both ok with it.

    "Families who use food stamps to help make ends meet may face a reduction in the amount they receive come January.

    Food Stamp recipients using the utility allowance will be affected by the change.

    Michael Mcelhaney, with Mahoning County Job and Family Services, said the reduction is due to a change in how the utility allowance is calculated.

    "That's for those that are paying heating and cooling. The state is informing us that there could be a decrease of up to $50 in monthly food assistance benefits for these families," said Mcelhaney. "This is a result of the decreased cost of natural gas and other utilities. The federal government feels it has cost less to heat and cool a home within the past year."

    The reduction will mainly affect those who currently pay some or all of their utilities.

    Charitable organizations worry that the cuts and rising food prices could lead to serious problems for some families."

    "Those affected by the reduction will receive a letter outlining the changes in the coming weeks.

    The Associated Press reported this week that Ohio tried to appeal the change, but the request was denied by the U.S. Department of Agriculture."
