Michigan Discovers Its Future Has Been Canceled

If you find yourself living in Michigan, advice that has been wise for decades now goes double: get out before liberalism makes things even worse.

Michigan now has more food stamp recipients than it does public school students, an analysis of federal and state statistics by Breitbart News reveals.

Food stamp moochers number 1,679,421.

According to the Michigan Department of Education, the state’s total pupil count for K-12 is 1,564,114.

Those kids had better study hard, considering how many will be riding on the backs of those who graduate.

Not that all of these people are actually poor:

Michigan’s food stamp program has struggled to combat fraud and abuse. As recently as last week, for example, three brothers pleaded guilty for their roles in a food stamp fraud scheme at the Middle Eastern Market in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that cost taxpayers $1,278,700.

This year, Michigan’s food stamp program cost taxpayers $2,576,165,148.

Those taxes, along with excessive regulations and disincentives to work, have driven enough wealth creators out of the state to set it spinning into the Democrat Death Spiral.

Liberals in both parties would no doubt offer to solve Michigan’s problem of fewer children than food stamp moochers by importing zillions more moochers from the Third World under the false premise that they will all slave nobly to prop up the crumbling welfare state. A more realistic solution would be to bribe Canada into annexing Detroit.

    Translation: they were muslims.

    Here in Indiana it is common to see food stamp users putting money orders on their cards, which are then mailed outside the country to their relatives back home. Some states have put a stop to this but Hoosiers keep chugging along. I’d bet the same happens in Michigan.

    Those of us who live in upstate Michigan would really love it if Ohio or Canada would take Detroit off our hands. It seems like all our state income tax dollars flow toward the giant sucking hole that is Detroit. We have a republican house, senate and governor, but still can’t shed those liberal policies. At least we passed Right to Work legislation, but it was too little, too late. We are California without the coastline and the great weather. God save us.

    Story Time, Kids!
    The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house, and laying up supplies for the winter.

    The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

    CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

    Chris Matthews exclaims: “How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?!”

    Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’
    ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing ‘We Shall Overcome’.

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake while he stands over them shouting: “GOD DAMN AMERICA!! GOD DAMN AMERICA!!”

    President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.

    Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

    Finally, Congress passes the Affordable Grasshopper Care Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

    The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs, and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, has his home confiscated by the government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

    The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

    The ant disappears in the snow, never to be seen again.

    The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize and ramshackle the once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

    The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world down with it.
    THE END.

    If what I’ve read is correct, it also has more Muslims than any other state. (Just sayin)

    You might have missed it, but Republicans have regained control of Michigan and are trying to fix it.
