Obama Takes Foodstamps...Higher and Higher


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2012-10-05/us-foodstamp-usage-rises-new-record-high   After Obama's minions release their patently ridiculous unemployment numbers, we see that food stamp recipients in the US are now at an all time high, pushing well past 46 Million. Anecdotally, my wife and her homeschool mom friends went to help out and make some food donations at one of our local Pacific Northwest food banks.  They say they have been EXTREMELY busy, much more so than they have any recollection of being. Reminder to self:  make sure to subtly push towards food banks and away from United Way in terms of corporate charitable giving.

Total private-sector employment is today what it was in 2001. (Graph). Eleven years of no net job growth, but the USA added 30 million or so Immigrants and their children in that time.
