SNAP Riots?

Updated on October 28, 2013

"What government can give to you government can take away." There are approximately 50 million people on the SNAP (food stamp program) benefit handout program. I previously wrote an article concerning November 1st of this year and the SNAP cut backs. You can read that article at the link at the bottom of this one.

The problem with any socialistic bending entitlement society is that eventually you run out of other people's money. We witnessed the riots in Greece, Spain and other European countries where austerity measures had to be implemented. This nation's time is coming. I attribute the past 5 years of reckless spending by Obama and his crew to the root cause of what we might see. Now the question might be, "Was it intentional?"

Lets pause and watch this video.

Now I can hear the liberals across the nation, and the Democratic pick pockets in Washington DC,screaming at the top of their lungs that "it's the Republican's fault." Far from it so lets set the record straight. Here's the cold, hard fact of what is about to occur and why.

"The cut takes effect on Nov. 1, and will bring an end to a funding increase that Democrats wrapped into President Obama’s 2009 stimulus law."

Okay so back up and remember "whose" idea the stimulus plan was and who controlled both houses of Congress when Obama rolled that lemon on to the national showroom floor. I'm wondering now what the pony up on the food stamp amounts paid out had to do with stimulating the economy. Pelosi said that food stamps are a job creator if I remember correctly. No what the food stamp program has become is a means to enslave American people and make them beholden to the federal government.

Lets hear what Pelosi had to say about all of this and get a chuckle. After watching this chuckle head then ask yourself, "Have you seen anything she mentioned in that diatribe?" I still can't believe that people in her district keep sending her back to do more damage to this nation and fatten up her bank accounts.

As we begin to brace against the unknown, which is November 1st, may I suggest you go back now and actually read and digest the article I wrote on the SNAP program just the other day. This cut that is about to occur was the fault of the Democrats. Be very clear on that.

I'm all for helping those who need temporary assistance. But our society is slowly but surely being turned into an entitlement society, an unsustainable entitlement society by people who are masquerading as defenders of the poor folk. No, they are defenders of their own special interests and their own bank accounts. I think the interview in the first video hits the nail squarely on the head.

All Obama has ever done is to give lip service to job creation after creating his latest crisis. It's better to give a hand up than a hand out. Teach a man how to fish not give him the fish.

Coming down the pike is a $40 billion cut in the farm bill sitting in Congress. I also discuss that bill in the link below. The SNAP program has gotten out of hand and is rife with fraud, waste and abuse. Any thinking American knows that. Look at what just happened in Louisiana when the computer system went down for just a few hours. Grocery store aisles were literally stripped bare. Just a few bad apples huh? I don't think so. It's a mentality that has been bred into generation after generation and word spreads very quickly.

Measures need to be taken to break the cycle of welfare dependency. The SNAP program is part of that whole cycle. During Obama's tenure he has expanded that grip on people by leaps and bounds. If you place, and then keep, a boot heel on people's throats then you have control over their lives. You're looking at it. It's now time to do something about it.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Welfare spending at the end of this year will total out to $217 billion more than welfare spending in 2008. In some states total benefits exceed $40,000."

Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Listen To The End. Shocked? Don't Be!

      That woman in the video worrying about her food stamps is a perfect example of the 'low information' voters you write about, Jim. Can we change the mindset and behavior of such 'entitlement-needy' folks? Sincerely doubt it.

      "Coming down the pike is a $40 billion cut in the farm bill sitting in Congress." - Fully half the federal annual cash budget is entitlements. That's $2 TRILLION per year. If cutting $40 billion from SNAP actually causes riots, which I admit it could, maybe We the People are sick enough to deserve the lousy government we got. After all, we elected it. Sure, sometimes we complain about the bums. But the most we ever do is replace old bums with new bums.

      That video is disgusting for sure. The story of what happened to the children is heart-pulling. But to have no remorse about the children, and then laugh about whether the food stamps are safe? Seems to me that has to be a side-effect of shock at the loss of two children. It also makes you wonder what the news folks were thinking to put that lady on camera at that time. Good grief, she still appeared to be in that first stage of shock - denial. If not that, then ... well ... my guess is the investigation into what happened is ongoing, and we have not heard the last of it.

      You need a "DISGUSTING" tab to click. I was furious listening to the Aunt who was only concerned that her purse with food stamps might have burned up! Someone needs to beat the shit out of that woman! She was more than DISGUSTING!!!!

      @cheaptrick, it is NOT paranoia at all. America is gradually being brought to her knees by this entitlement mentality. Can't YOU see that Obama has an underlying agenda for this country? Really, we need to get THIS SOCIALIST out of the White House! This scenario reminds me of one of George Clinton and the Funkadelics song, KNEE DEEP. America is KNEE DEEP in this dire, choatic morass and it isn't going to get any better soon.

      cheaptrick - I don't think it's paranoia you feel. Even a blind person can see the obvious after a while.

      I believe this will be the first shot in an escalating series of violent events.The world economy is leveling;good news for underdeveloped nations,bad news for developed nations...very bad news for us.

      Perhaps it's my paranoia but it seems America is being brought to her knees by design.

      Excellent hub,Thanks to you FP we are now forewarned.

      Wayne - Reagan had it right but welfare has never worked to that effect and never will. The last video I posted at the end is mind boggling especially at the end.

      I agree with Ronald Reagan, our success with welfare should be measured in how many people come off of it rather than go on it and remain there. This is the "war on poverty" which does nothing but enslave and create more poverty. There is only one component...MONEY, and that is the problem. ~WB

      Annette - It does seem we are repeating history on many fronts. Just the front end faces are changing.

      There is nothing new under the sun. Yet how easily we forget. When the famine hit Egypt during the time of Pharaoh, the Jews went to him to when they ran out of money to pay for grain and offered their livestock. When that ran out, they gave up their land. During that time there were many Jews within Pharaohs (shall we call it employment?) who became quite wealthy. Then, after all had been offered up and they had nothing left to barter with, they gave themselves up as slaves to the kingdom.

      Understand that this had been happening for a good 6-7 yrs, and then there arose a king who did not know Joseph, and he replaced the Jews with merciless guardians enslaving them as well.

      Have we not seen this here? Our farms are being taken over by a government leader who knows not God or the Constitution. He is now slowly starting to take away all their livelihood that they have become dependent upon, and we see him replacing within government "enslave-ers" of the people. That is 0vomit's sole aim and goal.

      Look up the dictators: Hitler, Mao, Nicholas II, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, Stalin, Lenin, Brezhnev, Chavez - there are so many, and we think we are exempt? Not any more we're not! And what a coup: America ruled by Muslims. Good going all y'all out there!

      Uninformed, gullible citizen: Obamaville! That sounds great, how can I buy a house there?

      Obama's surrogates: You don't need to buy anything. You sell us your soul and it's all FREE!
