More Americans On Food Stamps

More people tapped food stamps to pay for groceries in September as the recession and lackluster recovery have prompted more Americans to turn to government safety net programs to make ends meet.
Some 42.9 million people collected food stamps last month, up 1.2% from the prior month and 16.2% higher than the same time a year ago, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Nationwide 14% of the population relied on food stamps as of September but in some states the percentage was much higher. In Washington, D.C., Mississippi and Tennessee – the states with the largest share of citizens receiving benefits – more than a fifth of the population in each was collecting food stamps.

  1. Does anyone remember Duke Nukem 3D/64? Remember the Abyss level? Remember falling off the highest summit possible? Duke Nukem starts screaming, "AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........."


    This is what the world is doing.


  3. What a shame. It will be over soon though.

  4. 8:31
    I can't want. Something might come out of the ashes.

  5. I think Duke Nukem was Atomic Comics.

    What we really need is for Goku to come with his flying nimbus.

    The saddest part here is that making jokes about fictional characters coming to save us seems almost more practical than anything the Fed is doing.

    9.16 Is this a unpatriotic veiled reference to the Messiah Obama ?

    A suitable 'afro -American " black faced actor President/hero with a Kenyan father but unable to produce a full long term birth cerificate, a fictional game character Messiah / trickster promising “hope and change” ?

    “Afro –Americans” are generaly or usually of American slave descent .But only “racists” and right “wing bigots” might ask questions about all this and besides his records are protected from discovery by the supreme court .
    Ask no questions and you will be told no lies !
    It is after all illegal even for judges , for national security reasons and to protect the individuals concerned to “out’ any prior CIA service records or agents .
    (unless they are Valerie Plame)
    Americans have after all no right to interfere with the privacy of their President just because they may make their own twisted ‘racist” interpretations of the “founding fathers” intentions in writing the constitution on who might qualify to be President ,who is a qualified American and the need to prove his/her qualifications to stand .

    Just because even Mc Cain had to actually prove his qualifications to stand as President, this standard of proof of qualifications clearly should not be demanded for a “black face” actor.Who is apparently a half fictional created character, a political construct ,with his history all MSM certified , with his past work and life history and academic history obscured.
    Including his own earlier role in employment at a CIA -connected bank .
    Part of a family business of involvement in arranging political "aid" to the Third world ?
    His Mother (notof course a CIA agent ) a non political was trained as a Russian speaking academic was active in Indonesia ,while married to an officer of the indonesian Military a pro Sukarno officer who returned to Indonesia at the time of a cia backed political coup and massacre , later she was involved in organising 'aid" financing for encouraging and creating small businesses in Pakistan at a time when both the US and the Pakistan intelligence services was arranging and financing a Muslim anti-communist holy war" led by people like the rich Suadi Osama bin laden against the soviet occupation of Afghanistan.
    Obama apparently easily visited Pakistan at this time on a passport of unknown provenance when others holding American passports were not free to visit pakistan ?
    Pehaps he was checking out the family business and connections for the work at the CIA connected bank where he was later employed .
    Who knows what is true with a person whose life history and even academic records appear to be a mix of real history and propaganda ?
    But true at one period of his life at one time ,he was active as a local politics 'leftist community organizer" who ,by courtesy of Chicago politics once served as a little known senator before a swift ride ,a dream run ,financed by banksters and the backing of the MSM to the office of President of the democratic United states of America .
    Only in America and its fictional democracy money politics!

    All that can be observed from practice right now ,is that Obama, whatever he said during the election about real hope and change , still supports the Bush and wars of Empire and whatever CIA assassinations or renditions of “suspects’ and Muslim “militants” is deemed necessary , his continuing support for money printing for the bankster sector bailouts and the insurance company profitability rip-offs of Obama “care” .

    I suppose the real personal and family bankster history background of Obama , explains that empathy for the CIA controller Gates , the empires wars and bankster sector .
    Its what he as a “leftist” in the two party but same- same political system was trained and put in place to do .

  7. 5:42, I have no clue what you just said.

  8. Right!
    So lets just get back to discussing the other duke nukem and real authentic fictional character games ,or even dancing with the stars .

    The supreme court has told Americans ask no more real world questions and you will be told no truths.

    They have no ears .

    Thats the rules of the game.
