feeling SNAPPY*

That new food stamp commercial for the SNAP program -- The lady asks, "but wait I have a job, I own a car, and I own a home." The guy responds, "you may still qualify..."

Welfare is for the poorest people. Having the government FEED us only cheapens our dignity as human beings... But if we want the ghetto-fication of the nation, then I guess that's a good thing!

It looks like the GHETTO is the way of the future for more and more of us, huh?

"Any measure that establishes legal charity on a permanent basis and gives it an administrative form thereby creates an idle and lazy class, living at the expense of the industrial and working class."

"I am deeply convinced that any permanent, regular administrative system whose aim is to provide for the needs of the poor will breed more miseries than it can cure, will deprave the population that it wants to help and comfort, will dry up the sources of savings, will stop the accumulation of capital, will retard the development of trade, and will benumb human industry.". —Alexis de Tocqueville
