But if you go to the big cities the soup lines are still miles long even with the food stamp give away. Atlanta has daily bag lunch give aways in the black areas and there are lines literally miles long. In N. Las Vegas a aerial view of lunchtime at the food bank looks like ants going to a smashed M&M and LA, Detroit, Newark, Chicago are the same.
Speaking of stamps did anyone see this?-46 cent Forever Stamp. Apparently they think that putting hearts and butterflies on the new stamp will make most people not realize that the rest is Arabic and probably not something we want to support. New Stamp - The second MUSLIM one!!!
“USPS New 46-Cent Stamp Celebrates a Muslim holiday. If there is only ONE thing you forward today... Let it be this!
“President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service To REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with A new commemorative 46 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp.
"REMEMBER adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, If/when you purchase stamps at a post office, all you have to say is ‘No thank you, I do not want A Muslim Stamp on my letters! The Flag of the USA has always been my favorite.’
He can't. As a prime Twinkie on this board, hacoda just spews hatred and bigotry, NEVER any facts.
The middle class HAS been suffering. Real wages adjusted for inflation are LOWER now than decades ago, thanks to the policies of the Republicans who hacoda shills for. It's apparently OK with him that income inequality has been increasing, the very rich gain an increasing lion's share of the national pie while we are behind nearly Evry other rich country in child poverty. But all of this doesn’t bother hacoda who presumably supports the policies that are driving America down.
The new poor are people who work and make between 25K and 70K per year. They make too much to qualify for aid and are struggling to make ends meet after paying for their own housing, food, medical, college, etc. Many are cutting back on food and medicine, while the government welfare crowd is living a better lifestyle and not working at all. Really sad what this country has turned into. Right is wrong and wrong is right, the lib way!
True, the poor of the past have a better lifestyle, but at the expense of the working poor. Believe me, I know, without giving out personal details. The working poor are struggling to make ends meet. People with EBT cards are filling their carts up with more and better food than the working poor. Don't think we don't notice that in the grocery stores. I once saw a lady buying meat with her EBT card and she said she was using it to feed her pets, while I was paying cash for hog dog weinies to feed the kids. Disgusting what is going on, and libs try to justify it. Shame on the libs. The lazy poor thank you libs, but the working poor would like to run you libs out of the country.
