Remember when that thing happened towards the end of 2008 under the Bush administration which lead to Americans losing their jobs and or homes? No, can't be why more people are on food-stamps.



But Obama declared that was all solved !!

I hope so. But I don't know how cutting food stamps and cutting millions off healthcare, and IT jobs for the cities will help. And since the spirit of Jesus is out of the world, hope is dim.

Blame the Reagan-nomics

Blame the Officials that Sent A American Owned Company's overseas too CHINA and MEXICO!
for Profit of labor, Then Turn around and try to Sell it back top US Citizens !

There's the Jobs ... People .. if you haven't Figure this out yet
Start looking at the Dam labels & Imprints! on what you buy

Everyone would would be Working ... Here in America ..
if the Factories were here In the USA

Just like back in the Mid 1950s till 1980 When things were Fine
then things went to #!! after 1980 .... Reagan Economical Pyramid started to Collapse ...

ohh yeah, let not forget the Increase of BS on Job Applications ..
that make you Fail for Hire... of the Simplest Common Things ...
on a Misdemeanor.. or just one Lack of a requirement.. Experience and Skills

So just Dont Blame the people Blame the System too..

Then we are talking about Blue Collar Jobs ...


Wow lets not forget about the High Cost of Living in Some Locations ...
were you pay more then half your income on Rental housing and the rest of it on
Utility's , and you wonder why People are on The Snap ( food Stamp program )
on a Minimum wage ... 32 to 40 hour a week Income... where your rent is 700.00
for a family of 4 200.000 for Electricity a month and 150.00 for Gas ( winter Months )
let alone 60 to 200 a month on car insurance .. so you can go to work...

That Struggle is Wide here in the north Country ...


I know the Struggle

I work at a Neighborhood Center for a little more cash..

Ive seen people emotionally upset..
struggling that need help because they cant make it on their own !!
And tell me their problems ... and they Work! people with
Family's ,

and you have this OP Whining! about 32 Food Stamp Jump!! ?
for # sake we had a Close Recession ( another great depression )
while Bush Jr was in office !! just as he was Leaving ... Some forget that!

Come work with me for a month and see the Faces of the People Ive Dealt with ..
that do struggle and trying their best!! ... to support themselves and their children
here in the North Country.. where jobs are scarce! it #ing Heartbreaking !

and to Note !!!

Some get Emergency Food at My Center!!
and are NOT!!! on the Snap ( food stamp ) program system ...
as what they make in their Budget of income,,, just a littler over to Qualify !! for Food Snaps

Ive seen that daily too!

and the Upset Emotional Faces... is something you never forget!
that do want to make better! some lost income because of a death in family .. lost a 2nd job
medical bills , something tragic happend , a Illness , a injury etc... the list goes on !

So it not just Welfare Bums there OP!!!!


Anyone want to question me ... Feel free!!
Im open ! been working at the Local neighborhood center for 4 years now..


CDP Neighborhood Centers

They have their web sites spelling it out and interviews. Do your own research. It's not a secret.

More like too much war. Which war were declared by Republicans well before Obama came to be.

Do you even know what the deficit was when Obama took office?

We also shouldn't be paying to blow up innocent civilians and paying to rebuild after the fact. Which would you rather have your money go towards?

Yes jobs that require something that is sorely missing in America. A decent education... something which trump seems set to make almost impossible to obtain.

But Obama offered hope and change to everybody.

I don't get it.





And probably never will.
