50,000,000 Americans on food stamps in US

A federal judge has approved a Californian city's petition for bankruptcy, making Stockton the most populous American city ever to enter bankruptcy protection.

Meanwhile new figures suggest that poverty is on the rise in America, as the number of people receiving food stamps has soared to a record high of almost 50 million. The number of people receiving food stamps tends to correspond to the number of citizens living in poverty, with nearly one in every six Americans living in poverty, according to the US Census Bureau.

Dang ... if 50 million po' folks can qualify, why couldn't I? Aren't I as important as someone who can't read and lives in a cardboard box behind the gas station? 

Oh, sorry to have wasted your time. Now I get it: I only voted once.

The media is simply telling us whats coming.. Hold on to your ass people cuz it's going to come down to who is self reliant and who isn't .. The government doesn't care who starves.. It's good for them since they caused it, they will save the slaves from it.. You will be eating Solent green before long in a comfy camp If you don't wake up and smell the corruption, it stinks like death ..

Damn... that's crazy! I just took another job to help my family. Sometimes you have to do what you've got to do to survive. I'd rather work like a dog than to beg on my bended knee for help from the PTB. F that!!!
