the GOP have become cold hearted trolls
Main reason I am no longer a Republican. And from what I see their hatred is only growing.
As far as the food stamps, I agree the program needs revamping. However, this is not the time to slash benefits. People are hurting and the idiots in DC have no clue how much.

You hit the nail on the head. That's all that matters in business today. And the thirst for those profits has led to a lot of unethical and criminal behavior, to the detriment of our economy.

another thing you forgot to mention is the enormous amount of money that we give to other nations, or the UN.
keep that money at home and take care of our own. then and only then help other nations.
here is a article that shows how much we give away.

HOUSE VOTES TO CUT FOOD STAMPS BY $2 BILLION
So reads the headline on this story and so I'm outraged by it. How dare these little rodents in the GOP even pretend to speak for anyone in the average level of society right now. How dare they even try! I've got a list as long as my arm of what the OTHER side has done to hurt our great nation but it's not a Right/Left thing and this shows it as clear as anything.

I hope the food stamp cut-backs hinder the.... "I don't have to worry about the consequences of sleeping around, the tax payers will be my baby's daddy," mentality that is crippling the soul of our society. Too many women are happily sleeping around without a second thought regarding the integrity of the man.... will he be a good father.... a good provider? Nope, it doesn't matter, just hike up the taxes on the working-class to cover it all.
For how many honest folk you may know on food stamps that are justified for the help they receive,... I know many, many more who are professional baby factories. Just keep popping out the babies because they know it'll get them more "gov'ment cheese", more social program awards, vouchers, and tax breaks.
I want to see the professional baby factories and the "who cares about a father, I got gov'ment cheese" women extremely hindered by this OP.
I'm all for compassion and helping others,.... but the "baby-daddy" mentality is a stench I can not get used to. Not on the dime of those who work their butts off trying to make an honest living.

For more than a decade, wads of American dollars packed into suitcases, backpacks and, on occasion, plastic shopping bags have been dropped off every month or so at the offices of Afghanistan’s president — courtesy of the Central Intelligence Agency.
the republicans want the American people to be poor, uneducated, and powerless...all their state and federal legislative actions point in that direction...don't listen to what they say, go out and find the legislation they have signed into law in state after state and in the house of representatives. they represent the wealthy and their interests only.
David Harsanyi’s new book, Obama’s Four Horsemen: The Disasters Unleashed by Obama’s Reelection is out today.
He’s using the apocalyptic metaphor to describe a very serious paradigm shift covering the eight years of Obama, coupled with the rapid approach of unsustainable government disasters set in motion long before Barack Hussein Obama was born
Not only have the ocean of regulatory thumbscrews and ObamaCare bear traps pouring out of this Administration weakened the economy directly, but they have shifted the attitudes of the American people, just as the Great Society previously destroyed the sectors of the population they were supposed to help. It’s not just that Obama is a fountain of bad ideas. An equally great danger – Famine and Conquest riding hard alongside their brother Horsemen of the Apocalypse – is that the “Overton window” of political possibility has shifted so far to the Left that the right ideas are virtually unthinkable. The people who should be championing them, Republicans, are nervously eyeballing public opinion polls and calculating how many principles they’ll surrender in order to remain electorally viable.
Where are the great champions of economic liberty and capitalism? Who’s out there demanding pro-growth tax cuts, regulatory form, and the end of the absurd nightmare known as ObamaCare – which will inflict dozens of times more bloat to the deficit than the allegedly grim “austerity” of sequestration will save, all by itself?
The GOP wants people stupid enough to think that the GOP will work for them
