Fox attacks the Food Stamp Program



Fox accuses people on public assistance as wanting a "Nanny State". They referred to people in the program as being addicted like it's "crack". What image were they trying to illustrate with the drug reference, Charlie Sheen? I think not. Not a word out of them of corporations and billionaires not paying taxes.

From Wikipedia:

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (based on a study of data gathered in Fiscal Year 2003), statistics for the food stamp program are as follows:[14]

51% of all participants are children (17 or younger), and 65% of them live in single-parent households.
55% of food stamp households include children.
9% of all participants are elderly (age 60 or over).
79% of all benefits go to households with children, 14% go to households with disabled persons, and 7% go to households with elderly persons.
36% of households with children were headed by a single parent, the overwhelming majority of whom were women.
The average household size is 2.3 persons.
The average gross monthly income per food stamp household is $640.
41% of participants are white; 36% are African-American, non-Hispanic; 18% are Hispanic; 3% are Asian, 2% are Native American, and 1% are of unknown race or ethnicity

Good for them. Thank God that someone isn't intimidated and that God that some people aren't afraid to speak their minds.

Wow! FAUX NOOZ believes the oil companies and their $3+ BILLION subsidies are sucking off of the government Nanny State teat?

True. So true.

Throw the multi-billionaire bums off of that subsidy "crack."

Schadenfreude Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.That's a fancy way of saying "Player Hater". Some people think that teaching "those" poor people a "lesson" don't realize that they are hurting themselves. 41% of those on welfare are white. They're teaching THEMSELVES A LESSON.

And you seem to be very happy in taking the pleasure at pointing that out to us Mr.Kid. You sure are a statistic loving little liberal aren't you?

To paraphrase Chris Rock "a Caucasian with a Quarter is jealous of a Negro with a Nickel". The "Southern Strategy" works As long as you think that it will hurt a black person, you're all for it. Cutting welfare will hurt a lot of whites. A lot of teachers, firefighters , and police officers are now on it. It's time the billionaires pay their fair share instead of nothing at all.

I almost forgot the reason why I stopped commenting here. But now I remember... It's because YOU are are such a idiot.
And the above proves it.
And only other idiots think that they can reason with people like you. ...

Well, since we are 80% of the fucking population, and half that number of the moochers, that alone proves our superiority.

Thanks for making our case.

Case Closed.

hey Radical Redneck and Mal:
Maybe you might want to read this article, here is a snippet.

Despite a history of strong labor-force attachment and despite gains in educational attainment and occupational status, black women earn less than black men, white women, and white men. In 2005, for the same hours worked, we earned 85 cents for every dollar earned by a white woman, 87 cents for every dollar earned by a black man, and 63 cents for every dollar earned by a white man. In 2006, over 13 percent of black women workers were poor, compared with 5 percent of white women, 7.7 percent of black men, and 4.4 percent of white men. Our unemployment rate is nearly double that of white women and white men.

These statistics are especially depressing because slightly more than three decades ago, black women earned 96 cents for every dollar earned by a white woman. Between 1975 and 2000, the median earnings of white women grew by 32 percent while the median earnings of black women grew by only 22 percent. This recent experience contrasts sharply with the gains realized in the 1960s and 1970s when the income growth among black women outpaced that of other groups thanks to the improvements in black women's educational attainment and the elimination of the most blatant discriminatory barriers to employment and occupational mobility.

You really are out of touch with reality aren't you, think affirmative action.

white women have been the biggest beneficiary of affirmative action.

@Radical Redneck

You're not 80% of the population. If half of you are on welfare (which isn't what was said) that shows how horrible America is to let half of it's population starve. That does not shows superiority of whites which sounds racist.

mrs. howl

The only Black person that benefited from Affirmative Action and said that they doesn't deserve it was Uncle Clarence Thomas.

kid said...

@mrs. howl

If Clarence Thomas feels that he earned his degree falsely, then he should leave the court NOW!

Obama became president because of affirmative action in a way. They "put" the token black man as their candidate so they can play the race card against anyone who dare speak against his radical left wing policies.
Go ahead and deny it because had the democrats won the congress we would have fallen off the cliff by now instead of just teetering off of it.

I guess Oprah became on of the richest people in the world by affirmative action too?

Yeah I haven't been around,been busy doing my white racist things,taking care of my mother,going to school,working full time and volunteering for the veterans and the poor.

Lisa said...

kid RR didn't say half of the white population is on welfare ,he said 41% of the people on welfare are white.
There are approx 223 million whites and 38 million African Americans so that means the ratio is much less in comparison.

mrs.howl said...

Lisa is so ignant. Can't believe she would call elected Senator, lawyer, professor, president of the Harvard Law review, an affirmative action beneficiary.
LOL, Of course,(in Lisa's mind) his opponent McCain, the bottom of his class, who was foolish enough to unleash Palin to the world, and couldn't remember what he was talking about half the time, yeah, right, Lisa, why don't you admit it, you just don't like Obama because you wanted the White House to have a White man and white first family. You just can't stand it, which is why I really feel for you, it must be horrible to be you. You have my prayers and hope that you will someday be able to see yourself in the mirror and wake up.

yep that's it Mrs Howl. Good for you. If anything I should be mad that they took the nomination away from Hillary(a woman)and gave it to Obama but then again I would be trashing her too then what would you have to say?

By the way I heard Obama got really low grades in school.
He was also not a professor,he was a lecturer.

mrs.howl said...

Lisa, I could almost predict you would say that Obama was a lecturer, ask any lawyer, it makes no difference, they both get up in front of a class and teach.
HRC has nothing to do with the conversation, Lisa.

Lisa said...

Oh yes he is such a open book that Barry Soetoro

mrs.howl said...

Hi Lisa,
I see you are upset that Barrack Obama was called Barry when he was a kid, maybe he did also use his step father's last name, I don't see what the big deal is, lots of children have diminutive names that they grow out of, and lots of blended families use surnames as children, they want to fit in with their family, they are, after all, children.
I see, Lisa, that you seem very angry and very afraid of a changing world, I hope the best for you, and wish that you will feel some serenity in the future. Obsessing about meaningless false or distorted details won't help to bring about any peace to your heart. Good luck, and take care now.

there is a difference between "change" and "experimenting".


So far that experiment doesn't seem to be working very well. Some of us do live in the real world not in the liberal utopia of rainbows and leprechauns.
There really is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
How' those high gas and food prices working out for you so far?

Darth Bacon said...

Mrs. Howl-

I assume you know men also work- on average- more than a half-hour more per day than do women?

That fact alone accounts for half the alleged discrepancy.

Should we also get into the data on which jobs men take, versus the jobs women gravitate towards?

Why do you alleged 'Feminists' always seem to insist that men and women are perfectly fungible, and will produce the same results in any situation?
