Food stamp participation is also at an all-time high of 46.7 million in June 2012; however the name of the entitlement program has changed. The program is now called, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and administers 133 dollars a month to its participants. In January 2009 32 million Americans were on Food Stamps , bless my soul SNAP, in June 2012 it’s 47 million and I rounded out the numbers in this sentence.
Sheran and golfnut31316, thanks for your support and may the independent vote terminate President Obama on November 6th 2012!!!!
The get program does not give $133 to each of it participaints. Just ask any senior. $133 per person is the Max entitlement. Benefits are income based and are adjusted according to income.

Thanks up2, it’s just a matter of wording if the government gives Peter $100 and Paul $166 the average distributed by the government is $133. See it here:
up2, you have said you like Barack Obama and that’s wonderful because a lot more people out there do to; however do you like his policies and can you separate the two circumstances and rate him on policies only? That is the intent of this blog.
As a leader you don’t blame other people for your circumstances, you go out and fix it. Why do progressives like President Obama think we are stupid? Why would you even blame somebody and call them names and proceed to do worse than that person in half the time! See it here:
BHO has got to GO!!!
I don't think I've said I liked or disliked him funky. I like some of his policies, like his stand on immigration, but dislike Obamacare. I don't think he is a bad man or even the worst president but once all the chips have been added up, I am ready for a change. I just wish we had more to choose from. Obama or Romney. The pot or the pan. Either eat we end up in the fire. I guess the question is who can keep our chestnuts out of the fire the longest.

My bad up2, I don’t like his policies because he doesn’t stand on principles. Last year he said he couldn’t do anything because congress hadn’t passed a bill to sign into law and this year with an election coming soon he signs an executive order to allow 800,000 illegal’s to stay here which will take jobs from legal citixens”It’s the right thing to do” he said. He swore uphold and defend the constitution, so as Chief Executive he shouldn’t have done that.
He said that you can’t pass healthcare with a 50+1 vote and can’t govern he did it with Obamacare and he lost full control of congress in 2010. Now it’s his turn to go because after all the partisan policies he rammed thru in 2009 and 2010 were good policies we would be seeing the fruits of his labor evolving into fruition like the Reagan recovery of the 80’s.
See his statement here:
Mitt Romney wasn’t my 1st choice I wanted Businessman Herman Cain; however Romney has the experience and leadership to guide the country back to prosperity and he’s not a career politician only 4 years as Governor of Massachusetts with balances his ability to lead.
I am going to disagree on immigration. Funky. What jobs are they taking? Unemployment sits at 8% or more, yet crops are rotting in the fields because we are too good toxic that kind of work. Think food prices are high, wait until you have to pay min wages to an American citizen to do it. Even then you will be hard pressed to get enough workers. Many immigration laws, IMHO, smack of racisim. I know that isn't a popular stand but it's how I feel.
Up2, it’s ok to disagree however you are just as wrong as he is because as the President it is his duty to uphold the laws on the books until they are changed thru amendments and passed thru congress. This is a classic example of Brother Jimmy calling GWB “Boy King”.
As a leader you don’t compromise principle and try to usurp policy, its ok for him to feel that way but don’t do it because it’s wrong.
Senator Marco Rubio was working on a bill in the senate and President signed the executive order to sway voters to re-elect him.
Up2, can you give an example of an immigration law that smacks racism. I have given clear examples to back up what I believe in.
All I have today is my cell and it is hard to do the the research you are requesting and impossible to cut/paste links. I will most likely be sometime Monday before I can give you the info you want.
I would like to repeat the fact that leaders do not:
1. Continually blame thier non- performance on thier predecesors.
2. Make excuses for not achieving thier promises in a ample amount of time.
3. Using the : I just need a little more time to fix it" BS.
I am over it, fun meter is pegged out. Obama, you dont have to go , but ya cant stay here!
Here you go Funky, the information I promised you. My first source is from HUFF. I know they are a liberal’s liberal but sometimes they get it right (IMHO).
Thanks up2 for your feedback, I agree with President Obama’s personal stance on immigration not his political one. Immigration is a Federal responsibility by the constitution and Arizona cannot make law in regards to it without a constitutional amendment; however I agree when profiling you should do it according to who or whom is most likely to do it against us. I don’t consider that racist, I consider it as using common sense to protect American citizens.
Larry Elder , The Sage from South Central has written an interesting article about the President called; The Five ‘Reasons’ to Re-Elect Obama read it below as Larry dissects all of Obama’s about inheriting the worst economy since the Great Depression to the Bush Tax Cuts and 3 more topics below:
Sebe, my man, I can see where your vote seems to be going in November. W. CONVINCED Colin Powell that there were WMD's in IRAQ and for America to enter into an unnecessary war leading us toward the downward spiral.
BTW: Colin voted FOR Obama in 08. Wonder why he did it??!!?!
Brother Jimmy, it didn’t matter that Colin Powell was convinced the laundry list of people convinced included Bill and Hillary Clinton too. Congress was convinced also as evidenced by a 97-1 vote in the Senate and over 300 of 435 votes in the House and that’s the ONLY FACT that really matters. The War was optional not unnecessary according to your opinion which I will respect; however I don’t understand how you disregard facts when you criticize a President you don’t agree with.
IMHO, Colin Powell voted for Obama because he is black and believed in the narrative ”Hope and Change” that he would reach across party lines, no red states or blue states but the United States, I will cut the deficit in half; however it was all smoke and mirrors.
After a failed record, and raising racial tension to an all time high I doubt if he will vote for him this time because Colin Powell is a man of principles
