While I agree that's a correct observation, pray tell what does it have to do with DDE's military-industrial complex speech???

Nada.

I did explain to her anybody who sees her do this is unlikely to hire them. there are menial jobs available in this area. if they are not getting hired, they're doing something wrong.

I asked about his clothes, he says he only has jeans and t shirts and sneakers. I told her she could take back the gas money she just have me and dress himself decently to apply for work twice over from a goodwill or salvation army store.

then she told me something that made me angry. a 19 year old functional male, he is collecting food stamps.

why am I paying for a young man who should be supporting other people?

I don't want children to go hungry, but for me to pay for this kid and buy him a cell phone and who knows what else does not give me much confidence in government programs.

How much in food stamps?

Average Monthly Food Stamp Benefits Per Person | The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation

Most of these states translate to $40 a week. Wow.....just above abject starvation, And what is the average welfare subsidy to the corporate farmers?

Quote:
These include increased crop insurance and increased target prices for crops that guarantee farm incomes. According to the Environmental Working Group, crop insurance subsidies already cost taxpayers $9 billion a year, and flow overwhelmingly to the wealthiest farmers and agribusinesses. While the wealthiest farmers collect over $1 million a year each in insurance subsidies, and 10,000 get over $100,000, the lowest 80 percent of policy holders collect on average just $5,000 each, according to the group.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/20/bu...anted=all&_r=0

Hhmmmm.... $40 a week compared to $1 million per year. Gee...seems you're beating up the wrong guy if your beef is with wasted tax dollars.

Course, if you're a right winger, you HATE those poor people and their uppity thoughts of having some kind of RIGHT to eat.

The House approved a Republican plan Thursday to cut food stamps by $39 billion during the next decade, setting up a showdown with Democrats over the program used by nearly 48 million low-income Americans.

The Defense Department must stop arming local police
Police militarization has been fueled by the Department of Defense, which has provided billions of dollars worth of tanks, grenade launchers and other weapons to local law enforcement agencies -- including more than 93,000 machine guns. Secretary of Defense Hagel has the authority to suspend the program at any time, but he's not going to do it unless we demand it.

Tell Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel: Stop providing military equipment to local police departments.

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problem.”

“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”

Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947.
