This is no surprise. Republicans literally want to make people poor, hungry, and desperate. This is called "incentivizing" them to their corporate overlords. Economic desperation is quite the "motivator" to do anything to survive, especially for families with hungry children. 
"When the House voted in September to cut $40 billion from the federal food-stamp program over 10 years, all but 15 Republicans supported the measure while not a single Democrat did so.

But according to a TIME analysis of county-by-county food-stamp-enrollment data compiled by the nonprofit Feeding America, it appears that House Republicans represent more districts with high levels of participation in the program than House Democrats."


It’s Official: White Folks in Red States are the Biggest Food Stamp ‘Moochers’ in the Country
"Statistics reveal that the city holding the most beneficiaries of the SNAP program (a favorite target of the GOP) is 99.22% white and 95% Republican. Owsley County, Kentucky earns the lowest median household income in the country, but they are the most prolific government-takers in U.S. existence."

"Food stamps" is a race baiting issue and if keeping their "constituents" miserable makes them blame Obama, then that's bonus for them.

Just some clarity for those of you who are questioning whether Jesus was real or not.
One thing that is clear is that Jesus was Not A Zombie!

Priorities and balance. I don't work for myself, I work for my family. And as they are more important than work, I take the time out to spend with them.

Also remember that if voting didn't matter, why are conservative Republicans and their corporate overlords trying so hard to make it harder for you to do it

+William Henry Well said!  A People's movement is definitely the answer. Faced with another year of no pay raise though the company I work for is showing a good profit, think the union may be able to make a comeback.  Not sure if that is the answer, but something will need to change, otherwise the labor force might as well just be slaves.

I spent the better part of 15 years living on the road traveling from project to project, and would always go explore the nightlife where ever I went. The Swizzle Inn is one of the best neighborhood bars in the country, and I make a point to go here anytime I'm visiting Phoenix. You can sit down next to anyone and have a great conversation. It really feels like home. The bar is hidden away on the back corner of a tiny shopping strip behind Starbucks. Parking can be a huge problem, but it's worth it. The owners are regulars in the bar and bring in free munchies in the afternoon/early evening regularly. The Swizzle is tropical themed, but dimly lit, and has a pool table, dart board, and C-shaped bar. Very decked out for holidays like christmas, halloween, and St. Patrick's Day. Open to people of all persuasions.

While I've never had food here, this place is a really fun bar on Thurs-Sat. nights. There is a very mixed crowd from all walks of life, from pool/dart players, dancers (wonderful DJ by the way), dark siders, alternative crowd, sports fans, racing enthusiasts, bikers, the LGBT community, freedom lovers, etc. This is the best closing bar in The Lakes Area.

This is an excellent headquarters for Minnesota's version of the Democratic Party (Democratic-Farmer-labor). Someone took time out from their busy day to give me the full tour of the building, and all of the spaces they had available are state of the art. So nice to see a well organized center-left party in Minnesota. This is the nerve center for the campaign to move the state forward.
