Rbreb13 you are correct. USDA latest report places 101 million people on food assistance.
Page 4, first paragraph of the PDF specifically lists 101 Million.
And that was the 2012 numbers, in total 2013 is looking at even more of an increase.
More people are on food assistance than hold jobs in the private sector today. Add in the government employees and those on other assistance like soc. security and indeed you do have over half the population receiving government funds as Crump pointed out.
Why are some of the "Our Opinion" articles open to comments while lately some of them have not been?
I believe the last one was closed to comments as a matter of fact.
Fox and Michael Moore and all Democratic supporters.
I really enjoyed no way Jay's veto of the federal gun enforcement bill. Basically the State passes a bill, the people want, exclaiming they will not tolerate the Federal Government to violate the Constitution and place "infringements" on the second Amendment and the Governor in all his Femocrat single minded wisdom uses the Constitution as an excuse to veto it.
Federal Laws may trump Sate laws but they do not trump the Constitution.
Can't wait for September. Time to cram it down "No Way Jay's" Throat.
Nice nickname for him Lifer :)
Of course if you don't tag your pets and let them run against city ordinances they maybe mis-identified as feral or wild though.
On the bright side something is getting "Gelded". Enjoy.
Ironic that leftist and union policies bring on the economic down turn and yet they are hurt by their own creation of temp jobs becoming more profitable.
I do go to each of their perch spots every evening and say good night. The back of the barn belongs to the new mom, the front to the old gray cat we found stuffed in our mailbox, the tack room to the fat calico who sits in the window, the tool shed to the little yellow other mom (now spayed) and the deck belongs to the queen who goes where ever she wants.
They all sit and wait for the sun to go down and me to make my rounds.
The neutered males stay inside and have a run we let them out into.
I have to say it is rare to see a mouse in the barn now. Even the pigeons have left for safer places. Now if they would just get rid of the rabbits.
