Obama’s Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, in an interview: “I should point out, when you talk about the SNAP program or the foot stamp program, you have to recognize that it’s also an economic stimulus. Every dollar of SNAP benefits generates $1.84 in the economy in terms of economic activity. If people are able to buy a little more in the grocery store, someone has to stock it, package it, shelve it, process it, ship it. All of those are jobs. It’s the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times.”
The man has spoken! Food stamps are stimulus! It seems that food stamps do a better job of stimulating the economy than jobs do, evidently. Because although there has been a vast increase of people on them, the jobs are less and less plentiful. Hmm… maybe foodstamps are helpful. I mean hungry people got to eat right? And when people eat, they spend money right? Well the thing is, it is government sending money to people, to get them to buy stuff. Only, unlike Stimulus 1.0, this is long term government spending.
One problem with this plan, government can’t continue to spend more and more money, sending essentially free money to people who aren’t working, or are working less, and taking that money from people who are working. Many of whom are not working anymore since Obama and his henchmen are making it much less business friendly within this country.
Again, my brain is scrambled, because the news is on and is turned way up, but I guarantee that my quality articles will become higher quality once I work out a better schedule. Stay informed.

Yes my friends, you read that right. America is being sabotaged from within and the culprit is none other than our dear leader, The One, Barry Hussein Obama. While the economic impact of the oil spill in the gulf is horrifying to say the least, The One, He Who Will End Global Warming and Solve All Ills, is exacerbating the situation with a 6 month moratorium on drilling. You might say ‘Oh well the judge overturned that’ or ‘Good, no more oil spills’, imagine this, thousands of people could lose their jobs working on the rigs, stocking the rigs, supplying the rigs, upkeep on the rigs etc. for 6 months. Imagine this also, if they lose them for that long, they could lose them forever. Do you want to know why? Each day that those rigs sit idle costs the owner millions of dollars. Foreign companies are already lining up to bid on those rigs. Six months without drilling is an economic death sentence for thousands and thousands of workers.
Even though the federal judge has overturned the ban, the administration is planning on appealing the ban and Ken Salazar (the one in charge of the situation) has already leveled another ban, trying to get that one through the judicial system. Do you see what is going on America? Our own president and his crack-pot team of politicos and aparatchiks are trying to ruin the oil industry and put thousands more people out of work. What could possibly be a good reason for doing this? There is none, except that Obama wants to increase his power and control over people’s lives. We are heading for despotism folks.
He has also announced plans for a new round of ‘stimulus’ involving billions if not trillions more wasted taxpayer money. He is pushing comprehensive immigration reform AKA amnesty. He wants to push card-check allowing forcible unionization. America, our president is a radical, un-American who is trying to ruin our country. We need to deal a severe blow to him and his democratic socialists of America come this November when the Tea Party Express will be handing many dems a pink slip. Keep up the good fight friends, America will stand so long as we continue to fight for limited government and personal freedom.
