Food Stamp Recipients Now Outnumber Population of 24 States + DC

Moonbats love the word sustainable. How long do they think they can sustain this?

In November, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that a record 47,102,780 individuals receive food stamps.

According to US Census Bureau data, that figure exceeds the combined populations of: Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. …

Last year, the food stamp program (officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP) cost taxpayers $72 billion, more than double the $30 billion spent four years ago.

The takers beginning to outnumber the makers got the worst president in American history reelected. But the party will only last until our rulers run out of other people’s money.

    We have. We are now just creating money out of thin air. Like Wile E Coyote, we’ve just run off the cliff, feet still moving, unaware as of yet that we are dangling midair with nothing but the hard, hard ground far below.

    The regressives love to talk about how something is “sustainable”, yet they can’t see how UNSUSTAINABLE these “social programs” are.

    Oh that’s right: “Cloward/Pliven”. Never mind.

    Hey, I started that line about “sustainability” being the mantra of the liberals EXCEPT when it comes to FISCAL SUSTAINABILITY.

    Hell, it’s all over now, might as well enjoy the band playing as the ship sinks..

    I like AC’s term, stampers; I’m going to incorporate that into the vocabulary.

    Here in Brooklyn, NY, which has the largest Russian immigrant population in the country, it would be easier to find an honest politican than to find a Russian who (is not) getting food stamps, and everything else.

    Imagine yourself standing at the supermarket checkout wondering if you have enough money to pay for the items you picked up, while in front of you is a Russian with 2-3 shopping carts filled with the best the store has to offer. Then out comes the food stamp card. They’re usually wearing expensive furs or full length leather coats, and covered with jewelry. Then you can watch them wheel their carts out to a new BMW 7-series or new Benz…… No wonder the whole world laughs at us.

    Nice stereotype.

    You’re talking about a group which is more Republican than any other demographic on Long Island.

    Hey Bo-Jangles says:

    Try watching the construction of a new palace by “honest russian businessman” that was against every zoning law the borough had on the books but managed to be “changed” for the right donation amount as you shiver in a powerless, heatless flooded home trying to figure out some way to pay for the $50,000 in damage the hurricane did and that the insurance company is doing its damnedest to get out of paying a single penny for what should have been covered.

    It really puts it all in perspective and why I cannot wait for the blood to start flowing. It is past due. Just as Europe tore itself apart twice in twenty years, this country will do the same. A good bloodletting is in order. Bring out the bayonets, they are thirsty!

    The saddest part is not the corruption, but the destruction of honest wealth and the deprivation of economic opportunities, educational opportunities and the out right browbeating we receive as our opportunities are stolen from us. I watched it for years in college as russians openly cheated their way through every class as they laughed at the Americans and were praised by the professors and politicians for their “success.” As many doors that were swung open for them, a greater number were slammed shut on the rest of us.

    It is unforgivable and must be repaid in blood. The time is coming.

    I worked with such “Russians”. Food stamps & fur coats. Vacations in Italy during summer & on Bahamas during winter. I sort of knew what they were making at their legit jobs & there was absolutely NO way such lifestyle was sustainable w/o doing something under the table. One of them, actually an immigrant from Ukraine remarked once that pretty much every immigrant Jewish-Russian physician in Brooklyn is involved in some sort insurance/Medicare scam.

  10. justme says:

    The doctor neighbor of an old girlfriend in Mill Basin once remarked at the sheer number of monstrous multimillion dollar homes going up: “what ever they are doing, they aren’t making it by practicing medicine.”

    But stupid illiterate Americans who are products of the teachers union educational system just keep on smiling as their country rots.

    “pretty much every immigrant Jewish-Russian physician in Brooklyn is involved in some sort insurance/Medicare scam.”

    Great! How do I get in on this scam? Because I’m tired of looking for a “real” job.

  12. Bo-Jangles says:

    In the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, ground-zero for Russian immigrants, they actually have offices open to tell newly-arriving immigrants how to get dozens and dozens of “free” govt. goodies. Many of these people were professionals in Russia, doctors, scientists, etc. Now they’re all collecting govt. checks.

    Also, Russians are involved in every criminal activity you can think of, especially insurance fraud. They now control several of the areas hospitals and every related business that deals with Medicare and Medicaid. They have also replaced Brooklyn’s infamous Italian Mafia groups with their own, and they are far more ruthless and cunning.

    Another cute trick. Apparently, according to some Russian friends, when you marry in Russia, the letter (E) is added to your last name. Here in Amerika, with our wonderful computer systems, adding that E creates a whole new person. That means, two SS #’s and checks. Two drivers licenses. Two food stamp cards. Two disability checks, and on and on.

    Another thing is that if you have mold problem, the Russians will pleasantly come in to fix it, but they will take over your house, charge you more than the original estimate, and spend lots of time drinking vodka and smoking cigarettes. (Just kidding, I saw it on King of Queens).

  14. justme says:

    Bo, that’s a new one but I don’t doubt it at all.

    The Medicaid fraud is the most lucrative with no chance of being prosecuted. The russians are salivating and Obamacare, untold billions funneled through a corrupt, poorly administered bureaucracy. They are building helipads on their roofs, dockspace for their yachts and reserving placed in the airports for their private jets in anticipation

    The sheer amount of fraud is mind-numbing. Who will stop it? CHuck Schumer? HAHAHA. The Local Police? HAHAHA. The Brooklyn DA? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. They have all been bought and paid for and dish out “justice” accordingly.

    As apocalyptic as I may sound, I probably am UNDERSTATING.
