“Food stamp recipients are ripping off the government for millions of dollars by illegally selling their benefit cards for cash – sometimes even in the open, on eBay or Craigslist – and then asking the government for replacement cards.
The Agriculture Department wants to curb the practice by giving states more power to investigate people who repeatedly claim to lose their benefit cards.
It is proposing new rules Thursday that would allow states to demand formal explanations from people who seek replacement cards more than three times a year. Those who don’t comply can be denied further cards.
“Up to this point, the state’s hands have been tied unless they absolutely suspected fraudulent activity,” said Kevin Concannon, the department’s undersecretary for food, nutrition and consumer services.”

President Obama Won’t Be Returning His Donations From Bain Capital
“Though the Obama campaign has repeatedly attacked Mitt Romney for his career at Bain Capital, President Obama still accepted $7,500 in campaign contributions from three Bain executives. His campaign press secretary, Ben LaBolt told The Politicker the president has no intention of giving the money back.
“No one aside from Mitt Romney is running for President highlighting their tenure as a corporate buyout specialist as one of job creation, when in fact, his goal was profit maximization,” said Mr. LaBolt. ”The President has support from business leaders across industries who have seen him pull the economy back from the brink of another depression, manufacturing and the auto industry revived, and support his agenda to build an economy that lasts where America outinnovates and outeducates the rest of the world and economic security for the middle class is restored.””
“There are very real conspiracies in the world, and those conspiracies are always conducted by people “in the know” against those who are ignorant or naive of backroom machinations.
Past slavery was largely based on force (thus was much more obvious), but modern-day slavery is actually more widespread because global slave masters use all of the scientific tools at their disposal to win hearts and control minds, convincing us that our hands and feet are free, so we must be living self-directed lives.
There are signs that the mind-pyramids that technocrats have built to enforce their 21st-century global plantation slave system are crumbling as they press harder upon our cognitive ability to make sense of words and actions. The owners of the shoulders on which the structure of tyranny is supported are beginning to leave in droves. The pyramids are falling as slaves begin to recognize their unconscious effort, and consciously encourage others to find a different line of work.”

“**** both the AP and Miami Herald, along with Faux News.
This information was in the public view two months ago. Daily Caller had it, I had it, and I reported on it along with a few other places. The mainstream media had access to it as well and would have reported on this fact if they had given a damn about the truth, which they do not, as it would have blown out of the water any claim of “racial motive” for Zimmerman’s acts and made Sharpton, Obama and the rest of the race-baiters look like complete asses, not to mention the “New Black Panthers” who were advocating felony acts.
But of course they did not.
How many crimes of actual bias took place against white people by blacks as a direct and proximate consequence of this intentionally-biased and false reporting by the “mainstream media”? How do those victims obtain justice in light of this?
The point here is simple — if the cops in Sanford had a reason to be biased, it was to be biased against Zimmerman, as he had a record of going after them for what he alleged was corrupt behavior.
This was easily discoverable by any media outlet that was interested in reporting the truth, and both I and other independent reporters did exactly that.
Now the “mainstream” media puts this out two months later, hoping to bury it “under the fold” where nobody will see it.
That’s bull**** folks — pure and simple.”

” So I’m counting about nine years of real world particpation during 30 years of adulthood.
Romney began his business career in 1976, and didn’t really part from it until he ran for governor in 2002. So that would make about 26 years in the real world for Romney. And during his time in the real world he also ran the 2002 Olympics and devoted a great amount of time to leadership positions in his church.
Obama spent far less time in the real world. His assertion makes one wonder – what world is he actually living in?
And yes, BTW, many people can’t pay their bills because they either are not working hard enough or they are spending too much. Not because The Man is oppressing them. That’s the real world.”
