More Americans Will Use Food
Stamps For Thanksgiving This
Year Than Ever Before

U.S. News and World Report, by Elizabeth Flock

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/20/2012 8:52:04 PM

More Americans will use food stamps to buy their Thanksgiving dinner this year than ever before, according to a new report from the nonprofit government watchdog group The Sunlight Foundation. The Food Stamp Challenge, which challenges higher-income families to live as if they are on food stamps, estimates that a person on food stamps has a budget of about $1.25 per meal. In other words, a family on food stamps must buy an entire meal per person for less than the cost of an average cup of coffee.

I guess they will have to skip the chips and soda for a week so they can buy the turkey. Oh wait a minute, they probably got the turkey free from the food bank.

...OF COURSE there will be more using stamps than ever. DUH!. 0bama has gotten more hooked on them as ever...

...and of course, many are blessed by having them. But I have seen enough overflowing carts with junk I would never buy WOULD SOMEONE like to study the link between the increase of food stamps and obesity and diabetes in the country. Their diet would seem to lead one there...

We haven´t had turkey in a zillion years. We usually go to a vegetarian relative´s for Thanksgiving. They really have enormous neighborhood Thanksgivings - they invite all the strays so they´ll have somewhere to be.

This year will be different. The relative in question, professional and well-off, is no longer so well off due to the economy, so has to be on the road by air almost all the time to pick up assignments here and there and is really too tired/weary to do Thanksgiving. We have also had to make changes and don´t have the time/money to spare to go up. etc. etc.

It won´t be a year of family and gathering, that´s for sure.

I´d be happy with some stuffing/cranberry and gravy.

My cup of coffee doesn´t cost a buck twenty-five. I buy it on sale and brew my own. That is where the premise is flawed.

I think if you have a family of four, you can easily prepare a meal of sale-purchased meat, fresh vegetables or salad ingredients, and potatoes or rice. You might have to eat hamburger or not the greatest chicken parts, but it can be done. Also, the meat-flavored meal, vs the meat dominated meal, makes this workable for a five dollar budget for the meal.

The comparison to the store-bought cup of coffee makes me think the average person thinks they are deprived if they can´t buy prepared food from the grocery store or a restaurant. Learning how to cook and otherwise take care of oneself is the best way to live on a tight budget.

We all have tales of being in line behind someone buying all regular-priced meats and processed foods instead of items to cook from scratch.

If you prepare your food from scratch, Thanksgiving dinner is one of the cheapest meals to prepare, and will feed a bunch feed people.

I´ve had to cut out the appetizers I used to serve, and no Andes mints after diner. One S-I-L brings some beer, and now that the Gramma´s have departed this world, I save on the booze. No one drinks Manhattan´s any more.

Now that I think abut it I really wish I still had to worry about the Manhattan fixin´s.

Of course all the way to town today there were ads asking us to buy turkeys to distribute to the "poor". My response to that is...don´t sell your food stamps to buy dope this month and buy your own turkey!

A majority of Americans voted in 2012 out of fear of a destitute future filled with dependence on the government handouts thanks to a school system that produces crappy graduates & union fat cats pricing the US out of manufacturing, rather out of faith in future success based on free enterprise & hard work.

The cultural mileau of the US has change for the worse thanks to coarsening of popular entertainment which has been more focused on money-making than on uplifting & inspiring people.

Thanksgiving has now become less on recognizing God´s beneficience & grace and more of just another occasion for families to gather together.

True story. I followed a women and her two children through the store last night. I overheard her telling her son that obama needs to change Thanksgiving to the beginning of the month when her "obama stash money" comes through. How can obama expect people to have enough money left close to the end of the month? Yes, she was black. Dear God help us.

It´s so ironic. This holiday started as a result of thankfulness, which is free, and available to everyone 24/7- but the food was limited to what was produced or hunted.

Now thankfulness seems to be in very short supply...but the EBT cards are free.

I am forever grateful that my husband and I lived on graduate student wages ($3000) in the late 60s (about $16000 today) -- and that was with a baby. I learned to do wonders with hamburger and whatever´s on sale, and still do.

Yep, the food stamp crowd will be first in line on Black Friday, creating a rumpus, buying junk.

Yesterday Rush was talking about the second biggest item in a damily´s budget now. The cell phone bill, averaging 300-400/ month.

How many of the Obama voters on cell phones have tricked out phones with data service? These dang people have no idea what it costs to raise a child(ren), because the government is doing it for them.

I´ve had it with these dang people. Last Friday I was in Wal Mart behind people here illegally. They bought a tray of mini sized Pringles, a big pack of jello individual serving sizes, brand name diapers, etc. Why am I buying store brand paper towels,shampoo, cereal? I don´t buy the mini packs of stuff b/c it´s not a wise use of my money. I get so angry. I´m Catholic, and the bishops are all behind the DREAM act, yet the bishops have no regard for the immorality of people here illegally, receiving US taxpayer paid benefits.

Romney was right - this election was won/bought by Obama giving tax dollars to certain groups. Jindal, Huckabee, et all can stuff it about the GOP having a message to reach out to everyone. Just what was it about Romney´s message that was meant for everyone?

If I see one more box at my office or grocery store for the local food bank - I´m gonna scream.

I take care of myself, my family and my animals. Leave me alone.

I couldn´t possibly eat that much! Having just gone through the local Piggly-Wiggly Sunday, I couldn´t have gotten to the meat counter even if I could have afforded a piece of beef. All eight check-out lines were open with baskets backed up into the aisle. Not many turkeys in the baskets, but dozens of packages of steaks, Sprite, cookies, chips, ice cream, pizza, Honey Buns. Those funny looking charge cards in full display!

It is not only the Food Stamp card, it´s the free Obamaphone that comes with it. I heard that President FoodStamps has redistributed 18,000,000. This is a nice voting community that can be easily organized when agitation or votes are needed. No wonder they turn out to vote for more freebies from Obama´s stash.

In Argentina General Juan Peron used to distribute gifts such as bicycles. Seventy years later Peronistas are still geing elected over and over again.

This is a true story folks. While I was in the Navy on shore duty in 2001 I got a part time job at the mall in the nearby city. This mall has a more urban clientele than other malls in the area. I was always put on the roster to work on Black Fridays. Talk about welcome to the jungle. Now these will be the same people who will buying their Thanksgiving dinner preps with their EBT cards. The entitlement crowd before they stuff their faces with food tomorrow should give thanks that hard working Americans like me get taxed out the wahzoo so that they can get a free ride. Happy Thanksgiving folks.

Ghetto Thanksgiving Prayer:

Lord, we give thanks to King Obama for giving us poor welfare people our free Obamaphones, free HUD housing, free SNAP/EBT benefits, free Head Start, and free Medicaid. Thank you for enabling a ghetto culture where no one needs a father, no one needs a job, and our only obligation in life is to go to the polls every 4 years and vote Democratic for president and for Congress. We thank you that we have a Treasury Secretary and a Majority Leader (both honkies who work for King Obama) who help pay for this by jacking up the debt limit and want to give out unlimited ghetto gravy trains forever. We thank the industrious Chinese for working hard to support this welfare way of life, as well as all of those hard working working class Americans who work two and three jobs just to make ends meet. We thank all of you for working so hard just so that we can spend our money on fancy bling, fancy cars, numerous booty calls, and promiscuous lifestyles. What a wonderful Lord you are, Obama! You enable us to be lazy, rude, and shiftless for entire generations. In you and Michelle´s name, Amen.

I work with older "poor" people. They have all their medical expenses free, their modest appartment costs them $200 a month, their kids and grandkids are usually well off. So, these older people get about $700 cash a month and about $170 food stamps a month (for one person). So, as a result, they do not know what to do with their money - they have leftovers every month. They do not drink or smoke, they do not gamble, they cook at home and do not travel anymore. So, every month they offer extra food stamps to their kids, and kids do not want to use them in the supermarket by the bunch of reasons, one of them being pride.
So, really needy people who can not work, actually have more than enough. And yong people capable of work should be ashamed using food stamps either. Besides, they want many things to buy, so they would be much better off if they apply for a job.

Walmart hands out food stamp applications withh their hiring paperwork - because they pay so little and give so few hours, they know they´ll need taxpayer subsidization.

I don´t see why I should susidize the freaking walton family.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video.

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said. The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said. An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire

Very few of the young Americans who carried President Obama to electoral victory in 2008 have chosen to follow him into public service, The New York Times reports on Monday. Which made us wonder who inspired the current Congress to seek office. The answer? Two Republican stalwarts. There are a lot of caveats that should be applied to the Times story, not the least of which is that most candidates for office tend to skew a little older than the 18-year-olds that cast their first votes six years ago. But regardless, Jason Horowitz writes, "[u]nlike John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan,

SYDNEY—An unmanned vehicle was due to begin searching the Indian Ocean seabed for wreckage from Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.33% Flight 370 on Monday, as authorities lost hope of detecting any new signals from the missing jet´s black-box flight recorders. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the multinational search, said a series of "ping" signals detected last week by a U.S. Navy black box detector remains the most promising lead in the search for the plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8.

Several years ago, I happened to tune into a radio broadcast called "Jewish News and Views," conducted by Shifra Hoffman. The callers were berating Ms. Hoffman for spreading what they called the myth of rampant anti-Semitism. One man said he was tired of hearing about the Holocaust, and that "we Jews ought to stop whining about it." I called in and identified myself as a Christian who was very much aware of widespread but hidden anti-Semitism. I gave her examples of the anti-Semitic remarks I had heard from people in all walks of life who assumed I shared their views because

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
