This is depressing. My wife and I can't afford kids, but the refugees in front of me in Sam's loaded up two carts like this and are paying with SNAP aid. Why do they get so much more help than an American couple? (Photo Credit: CHRISMAN01/REDDIT) Everybody is getting hooked on the free stuff. Americans, illegals and now even the Muslims won’t be outdone as America becomes the feeding trough for every deprived and depraved slacker
Congressional Democrats and Republicans remained at an impasse over funding the government after a rare Saturday session, as neither side appeared ready to budge after day one of a government shutdown. (JOSHUA ROBERTS/REUTERS) If you are reading this, you should know those politicians you adore and idolize, GOATS and RHINOS, have been stealing your money at a breakneck pace. If you’re not reading this, you should. You should know where your money is going. Do
Why food stamp fraud is “fairly rampant” at corner stores in some Chicago neighborhoods. (Chris Sweda / Chicago Tribune) The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) fraud is exchanging benefits for cash, which is called trafficking, and it is against the law. It happens when someone lies on their application to get benefits, or to get more benefits than they are supposed to get. It also occurs when a retailer has been disqualified from the program
Residents wait to be helped at the Food Stamp and Public Assistance Program Office at the Department of Public Health and Social Services. (Photo: PDN file) Dysfunction in Washington, DC is rampant. Federal programs are wrought with fraud. This is the swamp that needs to be drained. The bigger the federal program, the bigger the fraud. The bigger the bureaucracy, the bigger the waste. And let me tell you, the United States federal government is wasting
USDA intends to offer state agencies greater local control over SNAP, the safety net program that serves millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families, the department said in a statement. (Robert F. Bukaty/AP Photo) Like most people, I like a gourmet meal once in a while. What I really would like is for someone to buy me a gourmet meal. But that will never happen as you and me, the taxpayers, seldom treat ourselves to
The eyes of the world will be on President Trump Tuesday as he gets set to deliver a high-stakes speech to the United Nations General Assembly. September 19, 2017 (Editorial Credit: Mark Reinstein / Shutterstock.com) The United States decided that rights of invaders do not supersede the rights of American citizens, and therefore notified the United Nations that it will no longer take part in the global compact on migration, saying it undermines the nation’s
Hundreds of people arrived at a rally Friday, September 1, 2017 at the Federal Building on Los Angeles Street, calling for the protection of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program started by President Obama and under threat of being shut down by President Trump. The action is one of several planned this week by the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles. (Photo by Walt Mancini) I didn’t create this DACA “nightmare”
“Where the heck did all of these people come from Stella?” “I don’t know Sam. The caterer says we’re running out of canapés and there aren’t enough tables, chairs, place settings, food and drinks for all of these extra people.” “How many people were invited to the wedding Stella?” “Amy had 250 on the original invitation list. Then, some people were offended, and there was a lot of pressure to invite more guests. We increased
Adult content. Rated X. Take guns away from law-abiding citizens. That will save lives. Oh wait, law-abiding citizens don’t shoot people. Take rape away from law-abiding citizens. Oh wait, law-abiding citizens don’t rape women (or men, to be gender equal). So, what the heck is going on in this country I want to save from evil. Press 2 for . . . That’s one consequence of this evil our corrupt politicians are forcing on American
Your humble correspondent is often asked to write articles for newspaper and magazines, print and online, from time to time. I wrote an article for the Florida Times-Union for a holiday edition. It was an edited selection from 20/20: A Clear Vision for America to explain how Americans can and must find common ground and to learn how to live and work together as one.
The Muckster has been hearing so much about open borders recently that he decided to look into it and find out who really wants to open up the borders. First of all, what in the heck are open borders anyway? Stupid question? Yeah, I guess so.The country appears to be divided on the subject. Some want any and all people to be able to enter the USA, or any country for that matter, at will.
The politicians and the media have their panties in a bunch. They don’t know how to destroy the outspoken Donald. While many may not think Trump will be nominated for the presidency, or they may not like the manner in which he speaks, he is certainly resonating across America, what most of us think of as the “Real America.” Let’s face it. The media doesn’t speak for “We the People.” They have no clue how
So, is it a good thing for America to become more like Europe? No, it isn’t. While we are silently and openly praying for the innocent victims of the attack by “Islamic Extremists” in Paris on Friday our current administration is devoted to Europeanizing America. The open society and open borders of European countries like France demonstrate actions have consequences. Well, isn’t that what is happening here in the United States. We have an open
This election is vital because it will include an aspect of voting that has not occurred in such magnitude in the past: Illegal immigrant voters. Any sane citizen of the US can see that with such an influx of illegal immigrants that are to a degree being tracked, those illegal immigrants will be tracked down by the Democratic Party and ushered to vote for the candidate that will allow them to stay. This could change
