The Food Stamp President

From the Wall Street Journal:

The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It  said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.

It’ll grow until 2017, at least, unless we rid ourselves of Obama this November.  Though some people are starting to sound rather hopeful in that regard.

Obama has been an utter catastrophe for the United States – you take Johnson, Nixon and Carter, roll them in to one huge, nauseating political ball and you won’t get the disaster which is President Obama.  I honestly don’t think that Obama cares for America – not for the America that we Americans live in.  He has this vision of an entirely different America; something alien to our experience and against our finest ideals.  An America of socialist “rights” is what Obama wants – a right to government support, a right to not work, a right to be in school for decades, a right to retire early, a right to an abortion, a right to all the sex we can stand; and, of course, since he’s from Chicago, a right to political payoffs if you are properly connected to the elite…but no right to free speech, no right to worship God, no right to bear arms…

I am in good spirits, though – disgusted with things as they are, but still feeling confident.  I do believe we are awake.  Underneath the relentless MSM propaganda for Obama the real fight is going on…with patriots working hard to defeat Obama and these patriots will not be denied.  We’ll see how things come out – but on November 7th, I suspect we who love America will be highly pleased with the election results.

    I truly don’t know what will be more enjoyable to watch – President Romney taking the oath, or watching the apoplectic left become unhinged along with the absolute melt down that will happen at MSNBC with Schultz, O’Donnell, Matthews and Maddow.

    Yes he is the flip flopper in chief. I may vote for him just to annoy you.

    Want to play a numbers game? How many did che kill himself and how many did he order others to kill?

    Another choice we will have in November is whether we want to turn this country over to a successful, hard working, self made millionaire or a lazy, community organizing, career politican who vacations and golfs a lot.

    1. bardolf

      Do you believe Romney didn’t use his private prep schools, being the son of a governor etc. to get into Harvard? Do you believe that Romney would have been given a high level position on Wall Street without his degree from Harvard?

      Romney made the best of the opportunities given him is a reasonable statement. That he is self-made is ridiculous.

      Your description of Bush II as a lazy, career politician who likes to golf is sounds like Bush Derangement Syndrome territory from libs. How about criticizing Obama for his recent trade pact with Columbia?

      1. Cluster

        stool,

        Your class envy aside, Romney quadrupled whatever wealth his Father accumulated, and incidentally, his Father grew up poor without a college education, so actually both of them are self made.

        Yours, and Elizabeth Warren’s objections are duly noted.

      2. Cluster

        Oh and incidentally, Romney is FAR MORE accomplished and successful than Obama, and it’s time we as a country start listening to successful people, you included.

  6. Cluster

    And knowing that wealth is a real concern for democrats, claiming that it renders someone out of touch with the working class, I just don’t remember that being a concern when John Kerry ran for president in 2004. But liberals wouldn’t be hypocrites would they? So please, someone link me to those articles where the left bashed Kerry over his wealth.

    1. Amazona

      Or where the Left fussed about how he got that wealth.

      Romney gave away his financial inheritance. Doof whines that gee, well, he still had that inheritance of intelligence and good grades and admittance to Harvard, so he can’t be considered a self-made man, but in fact he did start with no financial aid, and using just his intelligence and ambition and vision and, yes, education and the patina of that Harvard degree, to make his own way.

      Kerry married his money. But more than just marrying it, he first had to throw his wife of 17 years under the bus, not just divorcing her but declaring, because TherAYsa would not marry a divorced man, that their entire life together had been a sham, that the marriage was never legitimate, and that it should be annulled in the eyes of the Catholic Church so he could come to his new bride, if not actually a virgin, at least a marital virgin.

      He left his wife and children for a rich widow, he denounced his entire marriage as a lie, he made his children illegitimate in the eyes of the Church, and he did it to latch onto the Heinz millions SHE got through marriage.

      That was OK. So was the lavish lifestyle, with staffed mansions around the world, a yacht, etc.

      The Romneys live well, but hardly in the style of the Kerrys.

      So to the Left, earning millions makes one unqualified to be President, but discarding a family and declaring your entire life with them to be a lie, to be able to MARRY millions, is just fine.

    If Mitt was poor, the left would be bashing him for being poor. If Mitt were lucky enough to be a small time farmer the left would be bashing him for being a small time farmer.

    Get used to it. What ever Mitt is the left will bash him. So far Mitt is winning. Even over the cookiegate none story.

      1. GMB

        Sarcasm? Not intentionally. Beg pardon if it sounded that way. I am on a self imposed thing here. No saying anything bad about Mitt. Specially when I am replying to other conservatives.

        You have to give me just a little bit of leeway here when I am responding to idiots like Thomas. Don’t take me personally.

      Dear Mr. ……………

      Thank you for writing to me to regarding the tragic death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. I appreciate your concern about this matter and I am grateful for the opportunity to respond.

      As you know, Trayvon Martin was shot and killed on February 26, and the alleged shooter, George Zimmerman, has been charged with Second Degree murder. The details of this night are still emerging and it is important for all of the facts to get out. Given the seriousness of this matter, I think it is important that the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the state attorneys complete their investigation. From the media reports I have read, the shooter is claiming the Stand Your Ground Law is applicable in this case. However, as I have stated in public media outlets “Stand Your Ground is a self-defense law. It does not allow you to get in your car, chase someone down and then shoot them because you were scared.”

      Until we know the facts of this case, the calls for a debate on whether this law should be changed are premature. I continue to stand by my belief that the Second Amendment to the Constitution should not be altered.

      It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your United States Senator. I appreciate your concern regarding this situation. If I can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.

      Sincerely,

      Marco Rubio
      United States Senator

      Finally, Obama has accomplished something positive.

        George Zimmerman stunned a Florida court today by taking the stand and apologizing to the parents of Trayvon Martin, who were sitting in the courtroom during Zimmerman’s bond hearing.

        “I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not,” Zimmerman said addressing Martin’s family directly.

        Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, cried tears of anger after the apology, his attorney Ben Crump told reporters after the hearing.

        Ben Crump, a lawyer for Martin’s parents, said the family was
        furious that Zimmerman could “give this self serving apology
        so he could get a bond.” One of the lawyers for the family called the apology “disingenuous and insincere.”

        personal note to tra von and travon’s racist hate filled lawyer and “family”

        Fk your punk assed thug son, and Fk you money grubbing publicity whore racist pieces of garbage.

        All
        sorry for the rant but I am soooo sick of this racist BS that the donk party and their minions have been shoving down our throats. They hold these people up like they are some sort of Gods when they are nothing but useless G****o trash.

      2. neocon1

        The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph, or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head. Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.”

        After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “grave ethical violation,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.”

        Dershowitz continued, “An affidavit that willfully misstates undisputed evidence known to the prosecution is not only unethical but borders on perjury because an affiant swears to tell not only the truth, but the whole truth, and suppressing an important part of the whole truth is a lie.”

        When asked if it made a difference whether the prosecution had the bloody photograph at the time they charged Zimmerman, Dershowitz responded, “We do know that there were earlier photographs before the affidavit was done that strongly suggested blood on the back of the head, and we know the police had first access to him, so if there was blood they [the prosecution] would know about it …

        “I’ve had cases in Florida against prosecutors,” Dershowitz said, “and this is not the first time they have willfully omitted exculpatory evidence. It’s a continuing problem. Here, it’s not only immoral, but stupid. The whole country is watching. What do they benefit from having half-truths in an affidavit?”

        Suspect: I Beat Up White Man Because I Am Mad About Trayvon Martin Case

        Maywood, Ill. – Alton L. Hayes III, a west suburban man charged with a hate crime, told police he was so upset about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida that he beat up a white man early Tuesday.

        Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”

        The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times” in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy are black; the victim is white.

        After being arrested, Hayes told police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white,

        Obama officially ineligible

        A crushing situation is emerging for, not only Barack Obama, but also for the American people as a landmark statement has been made by the Obama administration that is going to turn the entire 2012 Presidential race and potentially much more on its head.

        Lawyers representing the current sitting President of the United States of America have been forced, under penalty of perjury, to admit that the long-form birth certificate presented by the White House in April of 2011 is a total forgery.

        the rise oh hillary? WTF we are so screwed in this country

      6. patriotdad1

        Lawyers representing the current sitting President of the United States of America have been forced, under penalty of perjury, to admit that the long-form birth certificate presented by the White House in April of 2011 is a total forgery.

        Are you serious? If so, please provide a reference and quote the lawyers that led you to this conclusion.

        My understanding is that the attorney made no such admission.

        Rather, she correctly stated that an on line image of a document is not competent. It had nothing to do with authenticity. The fact that Hawaii has produced a certified copy of the same image and continues to stand behind the document is conclusive proof that what was posted on line is genuine.

      7. dbschmidt

        PatriotDad,

        Since are either too incompetent or too lazy to do your own research I will fill you in. President Obama’s own attorney stated in open court that his birth certificate as presented on the internet is a forgery.

        Below is part of the exchange between the judge and the attorney including the least biased source I could find on quick notice. Look up the ruling and transcript if you are even slightly interested in the truth. He should be allowed because he is “popular.” not eligible.

        Hill affirmed to Masin in response to a direct question from the bench that Obama’s birth certificate had never been presented to the New Jersey secretary of state to establish his eligibility, and she affirmed that the Obama re-election campaign had no intention of doing so.

        “There is nothing here,” he continued, referring to the birth certificate. “The campaign has not produced me anything, and I assume you’re not planning on doing that. The campaign hasn’t shown me anything on the Internet. There’s no birth certificate that has been presented to me – good, bad, indifferent, real, forged, certified, anything – it’s not here.”

        “It’s not here,” she told Masin. “I don’t have it.”

        “There appears to be no affirmative requirement that a person endorsed in a nominating petition for the presidency present to the Secretary of State any certification or other proof that he is qualified for the office, at least not at the time when nominating petitions are to be accepted or rejected by the secretary,” Masin wrote in his decision.

        “In this matter, as the petitioners’ objection is that Mr. Obama has not provided the secretary with proof of the place of his birth by means of a birth certificate or otherwise, the lack of any obligation on his part to do so means he has not failed to act in accordance with the applicable law.”

        PariotDad,

        Now. I have two copies (sealed and authenticated) from my birth which was on a boat / hospital during Hurricane Donna in Miami (1960–boat sank ~ I didn’t) as does the nice young lady born the same year and in the same (supposed) hospital as President Obama. Why doesn’t he?

        Then again–I know my GPA from my several degrees and if his is as bad as mine–I would seal them also even though mine was 3.82 for my last Masters. What was his from either school?

    Neocon to Trayvon Martin’s parents:

    “Fk your punk assed thug son, and Fk you money grubbing publicity whore racist pieces of garbage. It is BECAUSE of you and your evil seed that we need laws to protect our selves with deadly force in our society from the likes of you and your family…”

    Tiredoflibbs ( a few threads back): “posters have been banned for one reason and one reason only… MAINLY, personal attacks – whether its gender, race, age and/or religious based attacks with crude and vile language (since they could not win a argument using their knowledge and ideas). Wally is the perfect example…”

    I cite Neocon above as exhibit A for personal attacks with crude and vile language. Nice going, Neo, for a family who just lost their son to a self-designated vigilante. And how is it that you call this son a “punk assed thug” and “your evil seed” seeing that you know nothing personally about him? Why do you so glibly assume the worst about the kid, who had NO record of violence, while absolving the adult who took his life and has violent behavior in his record? As far as we know Trayvon Martin is guilty of only one thing: emulating a style associated with black and brown urban youth.

    How curious that Amazona calls me judgmental, when I’ve made no judgment of anyone’s moral character – only cited values and principles the Bible teaches that we should live by. And here we have Neocon being – well, being Neocon. Judgmental doesn’t even begin to describe it. Of course Amazona, Spook (almost immediately afterward) and the B4V moderators are hunky dory with Neocon’s hate speech since they all share the same political prejudices. There’s no bigotry on this blog – hell, no – bigotry doesn’t even begin to adequately describe it.

    1. tiredoflibbs

      Denny, my statement still stands truthful. NO ONE IS BANNED SIMPLY BECAUSE OF POLITICAL VIEWS AS ASSERTED BY SOME OF YOUR LEFT WING COMRADES.

      Neo statements is between neo and the moderators. I am a guest commentator, not a moderator.

      I am still waiting for your acknowledgement of and criticism of obAMATEUR’s, the Democrats and other leftist drones, bloggers and media repeaters “bearing false witness against the brotherhood of man” as strongly as you do here against all conservatives and non-proggies.

        Black Panther leader quits Hillsborough board after racial rant
        The Tampa Tribune ^ | April 18, 2012 | MIKE SALINERO

        TAMPA — Michelle Williams fueled an Internet firestorm last week when she talked of placing a “dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman.

        It was a racially explosive rant on Internet radio by one of the leaders of the New Black Panther Party in which she referred to whites as honkies, crackers, pigs and even pink people.

      Dennis, I understood that the reference was to insults to others on the blog, not to people in general.

      Do quit whining. You are not the conscience of this blog, you never will be, and you need to get over it. The world is full of many many millions of people who do not meet your exacting (though quite flexible) standards. Actually, it appears that none do,what with you being the Only True Christian and all.

    Jeremiah: <em."I’m writin’ in Ted Nugent. Ted is a strong defender of the 2nd amendment, and freedom of speech."

    So B4V’s resident Christian wants to write in the man who called Obama “a piece of sh*t” who should “suck on my machine gun”?

    Jer, you got any idea why so many people don’t even like Christians these days? Here’s a clue: it’s at least partly because they don’t admire that kind of garbage, while Christians like yourself want to elevate people who hold attitudes like that to prominence. Jesus said, “You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.” Why on earth would you claim Jesus as your Saviour and example in all things, and at the same time want to glorify Ted Nugent?

    Whatever happened to plain New Testament teaching? “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” Philippians 4:8?

        WikiLeaks: McCain knew Obama team stuffed ballot boxes bribed Jackson took Russian money in 2008
        Coach Is Right ^ | 4/22/2012 | Kevin “Coach” Collins

        According to internal Emails circulated among the staff at Stratfor, an Austin Texas based private intelligence gathering firm, John McCain was presented with proof that Democrats in Pennsylvania and Ohio used voter fraud to win those states and committed other disturbing crimes. The communiqués were stolen and made public by WikiLeaks.

        An Email dated November 7, 2008 under the subject line “ Insight – The Dems & Dirty Tricks ** Internal Use Only – Pls Do Not Forward **,” was sent by Fred Burton, Stratfor’s V.P. of Intelligence. It said in part, The black Dems were caught stuffing the ballot boxes in Philly and Ohio as reported the night of the election and Sen. McCain chose not to fight. The matter is not dead inside the party. It now becomes a matter of sequence now as to how and when to “out”.

        Burton also mentioned a “six-figure” Democrat donation/bribe to Jesse Jackson to buy his silence about Israel. On October 14, 2008 Jackson told fellow attendees in at the World Policy Forum in Evian France a ‘President Obama’ would “remove the clout of Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades.”

        Burton continued with an explosive charge he apparently considered quite believable, The hunt is on for the sleezy Russian money into O-mans coffers. A smoking gun has already been found. Will get more on this when the time is right. My source was too giddy to continue. Can you say Clinton and ChiCom funny money? This also becomes a matter of how and when to out.

      Dennis,

      Mr. Nugent is voicing his displeasure at the way Mr. Obama is governing the country, handling economic issues, what have you. Although Mr. Nugent is not a saved man, I can understand where he is coming from.

      What I like about Ted, as I said, is he is a strong defender of the 2nd amdendment, and freedom of speech. He’s a strong defender of our rights as citizens in general.

      About the one thing that he and I have most in common is his love of hunting with archery equipment. He’s a good bowhunter.

      But as to his opinions on political matters, I don’t have a really clear picture of everything that he stands for…just know that he seems to be on the right track, and is trying to wake people up to the dangers that Obama poses to this nation in the event that he should be granted another 4 years as the dictator-in-chief.

    you got any idea why so many people don’t even like Christians these days?

    As to this comment, Dennis….

    The reason Christians are hated is because those who hate Christians have rejected Christ for so long that they have what is termed in the Bible as a “seared conscience.”
    Or, as it’s called in Romans 1 – a reprobate mind (the equivalent to a seared conscience).

    What does it mean to “sear”?

    Webster’s Intermediate Dictionary says…

    1: To cause withering or drying : PARCH, SHRIVEL 2 a: to burn, scorch, or injure with sudden application of intense heat b: to brown the surface of quickly in cooking.

    So we might say a “withered conscience” that is impervious to the advances (calling) of God’s Holy Spirit.

    What is the conscience?

    Webster’s Intermediate Dictionary has…

    Conscience n: the sense of the moral goodenss or blameworthiness of one’s own conduct, intentions, or character together with a feeling of obligation to do right.

    In other words, what we can take from that, is that our conscience is the part of our intellect that determines what we perceive to be right from wrong.

    Okay, when our conscience is seared (withered or burned away) then we have no chance of the Holy Spirit guiding us in the right direction, and to differentiate between in what must do right and what we are not to do, that which we should steer away from, the wrong.

    Christ embodied good and right, because He was God in the flesh, Jesus is God.

    The world, and the carnal nature that inhabits those who have not rejected the flesh are/is at enmity with Jesus Christ and His teachings/instructions/ the person of Christ. (Notice the Jews at his Crucifixion who denied those like Barabbas in favor of Jesus who was innocent in every way.) Now I can’t say for sure that all these people had a seared conscience. But in an effort to elevate the the Priesthood politically, they showed the classic symptom of what a seared conscience looks like. The conviction placed on their consciences must have felt like a hot nail piercing one of the more sensitive parts of the body like the sole of the foot. And without understanding, or rationality, they crucify their only hope that was, and still is in the Man who they nailed to the Cross, and ultimately would shed His innocent blood as redemption for their sins.

    I have no doubt that many of these people later went on to get saved…such as the centurion (or roman guard) who praised God and said Luke 23:47 – “Certainly this man was innocent!”

    Let’s take a look at what Jesus said, and He will give us a clearer picture of why His followers are hated today, and have been hated over the centuries…

    John 15:18-27

    If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than its master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. But all these things they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have been guilty of sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father. But the word that is written in their law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause.’ “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.”

    Isn’t that amazing? God cared so much about us that He sent His Son to die for us, and now, for those who believe in Him will receive His Holy Spirit as mentor so that we might better do His good will, and have the assurance of victory through Christ Jesus Our Lord.

    A final word on the hatred toward Christians, we can find many examples of this hatred coming from those who are Left-wing oriented in this nation. Bill Maher as one good example, and many more who have written books, and created films defaming the Bible and Christians. But we as Christians have our example given to us in God’s Word explaining and giving reason as to why we are hated, enduring it because Christ first endured it for us when He went to the Cross, scorning it’s shame, and now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding on our behalf.

  13. Amazona

    I know a woman who preens about her Christianity. She goes to church several times a week, she has a Bible crammed with bookmarks prominently placed on her coffee table, and everywhere she goes she leaves behind religious pamphlets, etc.

    Her daughter told me that this woman flies into horrible tantrums, and then frantically pages through her Bible, looking for specific passages she has marked for when she will need them, and then waves this Bible in the face of whoever she is lecturing, shrieking “THIS is what God tells you to do!!! THIS is why you are going to hell for treating me like you do!!” and so on.

    So it seems that her “religion” is less about learning about God’s love for her, and about how to achieve her personal redemption, and much more about acquiring ammunition to use against her family because they don’t act the way she has decided they should act. She is quite proud of the fact that she has such a deeper understanding of God’s word.

    Whenever dennis starts in with his litany of cherry-picked Bible quotes, to harangue us on our spiritual failings, using his vast Christian faith and understanding to look down on us for our dennis-described shortcomings, my mental picture is of this woman, running after her daughter down the driveway, waving her bookmarked Bible over her head, shrieking “SEE??? THIS IS WHY YOU WILL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN!!!”

    While, of course, being a self-centred pompous shrew and a cold unloving mother.
