    6 million on Food Stamps with no other source of Income, with the number rising each and every day. This degree of misery has not been seen in over half a century in the US.

    Because people are falling off of the Unemployment Insurance and Extended Benefit Rolls, we now have over six million who are receiving food stamps who have no other source of income.

    This Depression is getting totally out of control. All we get from government are lies and more lies and still lies after that.

    Yeah people making money on the rising commodities prices that those "food Stamps" purchase. That our tax dollars pay for.

    Helping the economy. Well technically anyway.

    My son could get food stamps. He has no job, of course he never collected unemployment either. He lives with me. I just pay for everything. What a novel idea ehh?
