    American Dependency: The Soup Line is Open

    This commentary on America’s dependency has been generously contributed by Rory at The Daily Coin

    the-american-way---soup-lines

    Most of my working career has been in food and more specifically, high-end retail food; think Dean & DeLuca. The customer base has always been educated and financially well-to-do. After a “revelation” in early 2000 I decided that I needed to put my skill set to use in another industry. I found myself working in an office with the masses. Less educated, less well-off and one thing that particularly stands out, no self-respect. How can I possibly respect you when I don’t respect myself? Impossible. YOU don’t stand a chance.

    After dealing with this toxic environment for several years I decided to get back into retail food. Out of the frying pan, into the fire! OMG! The masses are now on both sides of the counter. The impact of 44 million people on food stamps, as of September 2013, is hard to imagine if you are not in retail food.

    The spike in business beginning on the 3rd of each month is truly astounding. By the 10th of the month the business begins to normalize and by the 22nd the ship is sinking. When there is a holiday in the month we experience a slightly different flow of business. Depending on the nature of the holiday and when it hits the calendar the flow of business changes accordingly. There is always the spike from the 3rd through 7th as the pantry has run dry. But when the holiday rolls around people have saved their position in the soup line in order to “celebrate” the event appropriately. Remember, not only are the working people of this country putting food on the table, we are also funding items like, lottery tickets, cigarettes, alcohol and everything else that is non-food as a lot people are issued a “cash card” in addition to the ticket for the soup line (EBT card). The state of Connecticut has a handy website that spells everything out, in detail, on how to get cash. Awesome!

    Listen, I am not some heartless, soulless butt-head. If you need assistance I will be happy to help. My wife and I budget, every month, a significant amount of resources to purchase food and donate to the local rescue mission. I would encourage each of you to do the same. If you have a drug addict, alcoholic or a person with another type of illness in your family, odds are, they have reached out to a rescue mission at some point. It is very common and the programs they offer are designed to help people that actually want help. The people that I am referring to are the ones that are sucking on the teet of the system that you and I have to pay their way with our labor. Our labor is stolen, through taxes, and handed over to someone that neither deserves it or that I want to have it. I would love to sit around and read, visit friends and family all day, but I respect my life and I respect my community, so I earn my keep.

    Now that we have a significant portion of the country standing in the soup line, and millions more that we pay directly through government jobs how do we get out of this mess? Tax payer funded “jobs” exist on three levels of government, local, state and federal. The working people pay for them all.

    When you combine the number of people that receive their daily bread, from tax payer funds, with the number of people who work for government I dare say it will be impossible to have an election that ever removes the corrupt from office. Who is going to vote against their pay check or the food on their table?

    Sadly, it appears, the soup line is here to stay.

      • Rodster says:

        Should this be a surprise to anyone? The US Govt does not want its own people independent of the State. It wants to control the serfs. The more people that are beholden to the State the more they can get away with in removing your liberty. You certainly aren’t going to fight the Govt when the SHTF and you need food and water.

        • Calgagus says:

          This ought to work well w/ the govt:

        • The Stig's American Cousin says:

          Absolutely correct.

          We, as a nation, have sent most of our manufacturing overseas. What did we expect to happen? The only way some people can live is on the gov handouts. Unfortunately, there are many who think that the free ride should last forever. Why? Many don’t get any respect, and many do not give any respect in the form of common courtesy. Who would want to work anywhere in that environment? They make them cheaper in China? But WE make them better here! Yeah, sure they cost more, but………. Oh shit.

          Welcome to the soup line.

          Thank you, Free Trade.

          Thank you, Over-regulation.

          Thank you, High taxes.

          Thank you, TPTB. :(

          • sixpack says:

            It’s interesting that this author chose to enumerate the smallest and cheapest portion of “welfare recipients”…He apparently has no problem with CORPORATE WELFARE, BANKER WELFARE (BAILOUTS) AND FOREIGN AID WELFARE. These are the institutions who are responsible for the demise of the “little people” who now need assistance.

            This is just more hate porn, as usual, pointed at the wrong end of the pyramid.

            • the renegade braveheart says:

              Good evening, sixpack. I agree corporate welfare, banker welfare aka bailouts, foreign aid welfare, and even defense welfare all played their own parts in the demise of we “little people”. I have no problem with anyone who has a GENUINE NEED FOR ASSISTANCE AND WILL ONLY BE ON A PROGRAM TEMPORARILY UNTIL THEY GET BACK ON THEIR FEET. MY PROBLEM , AND I KNOW EVERYONE ELSE HERE AGREES, ARE THE ONES WHO GET ON THE PROGRAMS FOR LIFE, WHO HAVE NO INTENTION OF EVER TRYING TO DO FOR THEMSELVES, AND [PARDON MY FRENCH] GO OUT AND FUCK 10 DIFFERENT GUYS AND HAVE A KID BY EACH ONE OF THEM AND WE ALREADY KNOW THEY’LL BE FUTURE WELFARE MOOCHERS. The only way all of this BS will ever stop will be taking down the grid [EMP, solar flare, cyber attack]. That’s when the reset begins. Sixpack, I’m not belittling you at all. It would’ve helped if he had touched on the other forms of welfare also. I always enjoy your posts and I know you mean well. I understand you are disabled to some degree and getting something yourself. You deserve it in my view. You’re the kind of person I would be willing to help.

              • mark says:

                Braveheart and six pack, NO ONE deserves my money except me and my family, NO ONE! Now if I know someone in need and I think their need was thru no fault of theirs and I want to help them with my hard earned money then that is MY choice, not the government or anyone elses. But if anyone is in the tank because they will not get up and go to work and support themselves, it’s not my fault or my problem. what happens to them is of their own choosing. If they perish because of their refusal to take care of their family it is no skin off my nose. I know that sounds harsh but the rest of God’s creation survives on the theory that the strong survives and we as intelligent beings ought to be able to survive as well as dumb animals otherwise we will all be in the same sinking boat which is what the powers that be want so we ALL will be dependent on them for the crumbs they throw us.

              • sixpack says:

                Thanks, BH. I guess I just know if I had a choice, I’d choose to be working and self-sufficient. I’ve never been lazy a day in my life. I’m still not lazy—I’m physically limited…sometimes I do it anyway and pay the price for my hard-headedness. Usually, it is worth it to me.

                I know there are a lot of people stuck like me. Some, who just can’t find a job, which is the whole point of TPTB destroying our economy. People have been intentionally planned out of self-sufficiency. I don’t even like to discuss the do-nothings, they deserve nothing IMO. But they are not the bulk of the welfare roles now.

                We have to realize that NONE OF US HAD ANY CONTROL OVER THIS. I* believe nearly every human being has a right to live.

                I guess I don’t believe any man/woman has the right to decide what anyone else deserves.

                Only GOD decides what we deserve.

            • padre says:

              Smallest, perhaps, although what he is really talking about is gov dependency writ large and so that would include Social Security and Medicare the largest portions of our budget.

              However, in a country that fancies itself democratic and is organized as a federal republic of democratic states, the “demos”
              or people are still the most crucial component of power. And more so than foreign governments or even corporations and their lobbyists the most certain way to ensure bad government is to bribe and thereby enslave 51% of the electorate.

              • Jonny V says:

                The money used to be there for Social Security. It’s not an entitlement per se, as it was originally paid for by the taxpayers. However, what ended up happening is just like the movie “Dumb and Dumber” where Harry and Lloyd discover that the suitcase is full of cash. The politicians have been using the money that was supposed to be put aside (by and for) the taxpayers, on a wild spending spree for decades now, and replacing the money with worthless IOU’s…

                • hd74man says:

                  RE: The money used to be there for SS…

                  The government has duped the populace into thinking the US federal debt stands at $17 trillion, when in reality the unfunded liabilities of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security stand at $114 trillion because the government has used the payroll tax confiscation for these programs to fund the welfare progrms for millions of non-English speaking, 3rd world, deadbeat immigrants. Even Yellen from the Federal Reserve is freaking out at the uncontrolled spending by the trifecta of government…fed, state, and local.

            • How about the Black-Ops expenditures, and the building of those underground bunkers. And let’s not forget the scientists working endlessly to create viruses and diseases to wipe us out!!

              There are monies going out the back door that the average american has no idea about.

              Feel free to add to the list!!!!!!!!!!

              • Them Guys says:

                Do not forget: asinine usless expenditures for every stupid cause or agenda. IE: as example, $10 Million granted to some lib kommie college Prof. To “Study the weekend drinking Habits and type of drinks consumed at Bars and clubs In Brazil!…Consumed BY jap or chinese Hookers on their nites Off work as Pro-prostitutes!

                Or Sex Preferences of tiny eels and gold fishes that reside in southern warm climes! Thats prob good for another $25 Million per year.

                Then said prof that gets huge tax cash grants uses Students to do actual leg work and write “papers” endless “Papers” outlining the found data for such asinine spending sprees.

                EVERY USA Gen Up till Now, always made it Better for the Next gen to assume control of america. And that included better and MORE Prosperity aka Net cash owned etc and better incomes etc…

                If not for engineered by design series of never ending recessions, and great depressions, on Top of already mentioned foriegn policy cash to Many nations, unecessary wars galore, also never ending.

                Todays retireing or soon to be retired Boomer gen would have been On schedule to become the first and greatest numbers of Millionaires and Multi Millionaires the entire world has ever seen in One location or nation.

                Between retirement funds, saved cash, owned properties/homes and buisness’s etc…The overall net worth of a vast Majority of todays boomer gen would be as stated more millionaires than you can count.

                Which when carried fwd to the Next gen they too would be on schedule to be even better off and wealthier yet!

                we Could have become a nation that had so many rich folks due to saved cash, hard work, inherited wealth etc that most of todays boomer gen could Hire out for all types jobs, labors, and basically act retired at the ages of more like 35 -40 yrs old.

                But crooked Banksters and their paid bribed polititions made certain to never allow That to happen..About the only sin worse than property taxes even after homes Paid for, is that 55% Tax for all You Inherit from parents etc. While parents saved away for kids futures so to have it so better…Crooked swindlers and Pols added more and more taxes, rules, laws, un const codes and more to be certain reg avh folks never amount to more then a serf or peon.

                And heres the Main reason for all of Their forced by design national failures etc…Because if they ever allowd the masses of usa to be so wealthy as I described…Then They, the crook pols and bankster crowds would be NO different then us “peons” as their eyes view us all…We & They would basically be Equals in wealth. Some would have more some less but ALL or close to all, of Us & them would be wealthy beyond our dreams as compared to reality Today.

                How can They think of Us as meere Peons beneath their feet if such was allowed occure?…They could Not.

                And neither can their ultimate goals of genocide against Whites become a reality if vast majority of whiteys got so wealthy. Ironicly You wont likly hear such truth spoken by any TV news shows, Dr Phil’s or Oprahas, nor even any Talk radio of the “Right side” sectors…And They ALL are well aware of what I write here believe You me!

            • Anonymous says:

              Yep, I didn’t ask to be part of this crap-assed system. We are the only species which has to pay to live. As an old woman, if they offer me foodstamps, dern right I will take it. Top people screw us out of everything– that’s what should be concentrated on– the Criminal Elite at the top of the food chain.

              (And I only get about $12 per month in food stamps– where as this Mexican I know, who has her own home, is always buying new freezers, re-modeling her bathroom, etc. get $109 per month. (I barely make ends meet!)

              Thank you, Sixpack. As usual, beautifully stated!

          • AndyNY says:

            If we are honest with ourselves, we must also include unions. Look at the steel industry, the US used to be the leader in steel, and could essentially charge whatever the market would bear. Unions demanded higher wages, and got them because the steel companies could just raise their prices. Once Japan figured out how to make steel, we had competition, and the steel companies asked for wage concessions. The unions refused (as they always do) and the American steel industry completely died. Same goes for the US auto industry, specifically Detroit. All the successful auto plants are now in non-union states. Union labor can not compete in a global economy – that’s just the way it is. If manufacturing in this country was cost effective, they never would have left.

            • Them Guys says:

              AndyNY: Now you know reason why since day One in whitehouse, hobammys most frequest, every other day, visitor was that Head Union Honcho guy!…Top Union Heads have always been in on it with top banksters, corp ceos and political officials. They may ‘act” as if they disagree on various agendas etc…But theres also good reason its called an “ACT”.

              What it Should be called by all folks is a Vast Criminal Conspiricy by afore named entities, and they all should be rounded up, tried with good honest Justices WE the people choose, juries WE the avg reg folks sit on, then once convicted, be either Hung for treason or Jailed in normal regular prisons WITH general prison populations. aka ZERO Club-Fed’s type jails.

              And EVERY Penny they swindled or scammed or stolen or got in bribes and off shored moneys etc be Put into a national General Fund, similar to soc sec was orig done, and REPAID back to the rightfull owners…Us folks.

              An Honest equitable method can be devised to ensure each usa citizen that worked, paid taxes obeys laws etc etc…Gets Their “Fair Share” Rebates and Unlike soc sec, get paid in ONE Huge Lump Sum up Front..Due to the trials may linger on awhile.

              But I have a great solution for lingering trials or endless ct appeals also…Thats Round em all up on R.I.C.O-Charges!…The Very Fed Law they enacted to ensnare such massive swindlers and bribed officials and outright criminals & treasonous Bastards!

              RICO allows us to charge and try and sentence ALL as if one individual trial. Quick, Easy, Effective…Just ask John Gotti if you doubt rico effectivness!

            • Masgrande says:

              I think the unions had “help” from some overpaid executives on the other side. Early on, unions were good because they fought against poor working conditions and low wages (while the executives got paid quite well, of course). Greed got the best of both sides, so they both ended up milking the cow and milked it dry.

              whether it be Ukraine, Syria, iran, Iraq, EBT … imagine being dependent on another to feed not only you, but your family. it is beyond what I feel is real, but reality none the less. the gas in your tank, the solar panel that works for now, wind turbine that charges a few batteries…
              what happens when they don’t work, who you depend on is surprisingly Yourself.
              where will these beast of burden all of a sudden materialize from? what magic wand do we wave as

              • mark says:

                DB427, I think you have reached the proper amount of frustration with what is going on and I’m sure your brother has. I hope he catches the greaser and beats the crap out of him to the point that he takes his sorry bean eating carcass back to beantown south of the border.

          Rodster, think of how much land food banks could buy with even a fraction of the money spent on EBT cards. They could set up a community based garden whereby members would have to contribute so much time working in it to receive an allotment of food each month. They could teach essential food preserving skills and even have a small cannery operation; teach a man to fish so to speak. But, that’s Not what TPTB want by any means, they do Not want you to be self-sufficient or to believe you can be. That would be bad for business; their business (control) & their cronies businesses.

          The stigma of the Food Stamp is long gone with the convenient swipe and the fact that all your peers are doing it. I am currently unemployed and could never see myself resorting to living off others’ backs as long as I am healthy enough to work; and I believe doing what I can to stay healthy is my responsibility, which is a win win for me and the system.

          We all know this is by design and a set-up for the day when they turn it off to get the true results they’re after… L

          • Lanny.
            “…teach a man to fish so to speak.”

            I ran across meattrapper last night. Outstanding!

            From his website meattrapper.com:
            “Welcome to the Meat Trapper. If you are ready to learn to feed yourself and your family from the abundance of free, high quality, organic food living all around you, then you’ve come to the right place!”

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            Instead of Welfare and EBT Cash Cards, send these folks, garden seeds, a hoe, a shovel, and a garden hose, and make it mandatory for each recipient to attend garden growing classes, and how to raise back yard chickens and rabbits.

            Lanny, spot on. As a kid back in the 60s, my Dad taught me how to earn my keep. I had jobs helping around the house, throwing newspapers doing odd jobs for elderly neighbors, etc. I knew about the value of a dollar and had a good strong work ethic before I was a teenager. Back then, if a man didn’t go to work, he didn’t eat, it was that simple. We need to get back to things like that.

            Our neighbor, a state park ranger @ HenryHorton St Pk, has set up a community garden to be available to anyone who wants to sign up to work it & harvest from it. We donated sweet potato starts to the garden. Others in the community have donated other plants/seed. We won’t participate in working/harvesting (have our own garden). So far he has had only 10 folks to sign up, but at least it’s a start.

            Off topic here, but property taxes are the most insidious of all govt. power and control exercises. I’m sure you heard about the widow whose $225,000. house was sold from under her for a lousy $6.50 late charge. Where is the justice. The judge wouldn’t let her pay it, and the guy who bought the place through auction paid $120,000. but offered to sell it back to her for $250,000. That judge and the guy who bought it deserve a very special place in hell. You can never own your property, the county doesn’t provide for up-keep, you have to get “permission” to do anything (fat chance) and for what? To pay for govt. to abuse you. If it ever goes down, I would suggest burning down the tax collector, property appraiser buildings, destroy all the computers, as much paperwork as possible and if they tried to re-institute it, hang’em.

    6. Calgagus says:

      Most states have the EBT schedule spread out over half the month. I think this is more or less to keep the welfare types from jamming the delivery system and emptying the shelves. The govt made changes to the EBT benefit schedule when more and more people lost jobs.

      Michigan runs from the 3rd thru the 21st. Ohio is the first 10 days of the month. Texas is the 1st thru the 15th. Get the idea? With so many days used to fill up those EBT cards the takers blend in better too.

      • Vicky says:

        In our part of Ohio, the EBT cards are re-filled on the first of the month. No one ever goes to Wal-Mart or any grocery store until at least the 6th-7th of the month. It’s pandemonium and the rudeness and petty theft are just unbearable. Thanks be to God, we’ve never had to take a government check, but if something happened bad enough to use it, I’d hope I wouldn’t be this much of a jerk.

    9. Be informed says:

      The ball is falling everywhere. You look at the amount of tension that building in so many aspects of life. I don’t like CNN, but sometimes their is an article that describes what is really happening in the scheme of events, like this one over in Ukraine and Russia. I took a few paragraphs to shorten the original article.

      Moscow (CNN) — In a telephone call Monday between Russia’s Defense Minister General Sergei Shoigu and the U.S. Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel, Shoigu described the activity of U.S. and NATO troops near Russia’s border as “unprecedented.”

      According to the official Russian version of the call, his American counterpart assured him the alliance did not have “provocative or expansionist” intentions — and that Russia should know this.

      But it hardly seems to matter how often NATO makes these assurances. The Kremlin will never trust them. Fear of the Western military alliance’s steady march east is deep-rooted. It strikes at the very heart of Russia’s national sense of security, a relic of Cold War enmity which has seeped down to post-Soviet generations.

      Russia and NATO have never been able to find much of a compromise. Russia’s repeated stance is that after German reunification, promises were made that NATO would never expand eastward — and were promptly broken. NATO says this is simply not true. “No such pledge was made, and no evidence to back up Russia’s claims has ever been produced,” the alliance wrote in an April fact sheet entitled “Russia’s accusations — setting the record straight.”

      NATO says it has tried hard to make Russia a “privileged partner.” It has worked together with Russia on a range of issues from counter-terrorism and counter-narcotics to submarine rescue and emergency planning. NATO says that fundamentally Russia’s anti-NATO rhetoric is an attempt to “divert attention away from its actions” in Ukraine. Now all cooperation is off the table.

      “From the Russian side, that NATO-Russian cooperation was just a camouflage,” says Vladimir Batyuk of Russian think tank, the Institute of USA and Canada Studies. “After the Cold War Russia tried several times to become a member and the Americans always said, ‘it’s not going to happen.’” He quotes Lord Ismay, NATO’s first Secretary General, on the object of NATO’s existence: “To keep the Russians out, the Americans in and the Germans down.”

      Russian President Vladimir Putin declared at his annual direct call with the Russian people that part of his reasoning for annexing Crimea was to protect Sevastopol, home of Russia’s Black Sea fleet, from ever falling into NATO’s hands. “If we don’t do anything, Ukraine will be drawn into NATO sometime in the future. We’ll be told: “This doesn’t concern you,” and NATO ships will dock in Sevastopol, the city of Russia’s naval glory,” he said.

      Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yetsenyuk has said Ukrainian accession to NATO is not a priority. The nation is currently in such a state of disarray that NATO membership seems unimaginable. But a membership action plan was discussed for both Ukraine and Georgia at the Bucharest Summit in 2008. It was put on hold. But Putin does not forget.

      “Ever since (former Ukraine President Viktor) Yanukovych fled his country and a pro-Western government took power in his country, of course this is something [Putin] couldn’t stop thinking about,” says Masha Lipman of the Carnegie Moscow Center. “So for him, to prevent Ukraine from becoming part of the western orbit if not of NATO, was something he absolutely cannot afford.”

      This is why the rotation of 600 U.S. troops, small as it is, through the Baltic states and Poland for joint-training exercises is such an affront for Russia. This is why it is perhaps not strictly fair to accuse Russia of just engaging in propaganda when it declares its mistrust of NATO.

      • sixpack says:

        Thank you for a fair and balanced assessment.

        It never fails to amaze me, how some people can profess such a mistrust of the LSM, claiming that they don’t believe anything coming from MSM, yet when something comes up that feeds their personal hatred, they are then all too ready to trust and believe those same liars. This Russian issue is a perfect example.

The PTB simply CAN’T continue the Ponzi Scheme of their one world economy for very much longer. They will soon have to crash the system and seek a reset. When they do? The look on the faces of some of the unprepared will be priceless! I’ll take no pleasure from their distress, but chances are that I won’t be able to assist them either. I need to take care of my own ‘tribe’ first.

        Every evening I sit out on my patio and listen to the crackle of gunfire from the County Park down the road. The ‘civilian’ side of the facility closes @ 6:00PM and they damn sure don’t allow fully automatic weapons over there, so it has to be coming from the Police Training Facility on the other side of the road. EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK!!! I wish that I had the $ worth of the ammo that they are going through. I wonder what in the world that they are gearing and training up for?????

      • Kevin2 says:

        Actually relative to wages gasoline (the greatest consumer energy cost) is only slightly higher than it was pre 1973. Much of this is offset by the substantial increase in the efficiency of the internal combustion engine. Producing 200HP then got you 14 MPG (if you were lucky). Now a 200HP engine gives you 22 MPG an almost a 60% increase. Tires last 2x and the automobile itself lasts 2x as 80k was about time for an engine rebuild in the 1960s.

        “Free Trade” agreements which eviscerated the US wealth creating manufacturing, cheap money with interest rates so low that debt dramatically increased, the demise of Glass-Steagall fueling a Finance Industry “free for all” and a Justice Department devoid of justice asleep instead of enforcing the far fewer remaining regulations are the causes of our economic problems. Far too much spent on the military for the globalists wars deserves a mention too.

        • Kevin2 says:

          Food Stamps (EBT Card) is a symptom not a cause.

          Do away with it and watch all hell break loose both directly (food riots) and indirectly (job loss increasing the ranks of the destitute) .

          What is needed is real wealth (not money) creation returning to the US.

          • About the price of oil… sure efficiency makes up some of the cost, but that cannot make up for the approximate 250 billion dollars taken out of the economy each year and sent overseas.

            We import between 6 and 7 million barrels of oil each and every day 365 days a year. At $100 a barrel that money comes out of our pockets and is never spent into the economy. Our wages don’t rise to meet the oil cost so we all spend less on discretionary items. This causes people to lose jobs when orders go down and then you have that self reinforcing downward spiral. Deflation in wages and inflation in prices.

            Countries that have to import oil to run their cars around in circles from gas station to gas station will soon find their cars sitting at the end of their driveways out of fuel.

            That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. But I’ve been wrong before.

        • Socrates says:

          @Kevin2

          I kind of see your point on the cost basis, but the total cost of ‘ownership’ is really not factored in.

          -Depending on your credit score, finance rates can be very high.
          -Car insurance rates are much, much higher now
          -Repairs and maintenance are expensive as well as many service calls are dealer centric- the owner simply cannot do many of them any longer.
          -Cars ‘last’ longer but the resale value of many plummets dramatically after just 2-3 years.

          The 1973 oil crisis started in October 1973, when the members of Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries or the OAPEC (consisting of the Arab members of OPEC, plus Egypt, Syria and Tunisia) proclaimed an oil embargo. By the end of the embargo in March 1974, the price of oil had risen from US$3 per barrel to nearly $12.

          The oil crisis, or “shock”, caused many global short-term and long-term economic and political effects.

          The ‘early’ portion of 1973 saw gas prices around .33-.35 cents/gallon. This was def not the case come October.

          And the military…is the single biggest user of fuel in the world, believe it or not.

          • Kevin2 says:

            The oil peg which replaced Bretton Woods allows the US to print money and export it to the world with far less inflationary effects than would otherwise occur. We abandoned the gold standard in 1971. The reserve currency status of the US dollar was ending (and with it US dominance over the world) so a deal was cut whereby the OPEC nations would take the US dollar as the exclusive currency for oil. Instant demand for dollars. The more dollars needed the greater supply could be printed at home and put in circulation. Oil dramatically increased in price in 1973. The Arabs are blamed but in reality it was pre arranged. in the end the US runs an increasing negative balance of trade yet the standard of living is maintained. Like anything done that works it was far over done.

            Their slick, very very slick.

      In some ways dependency is good. I tell a friend of mine “it’s like this – I don’t have to outrun the bear, I only have to outrun you!” All those who are dependent on Uncle Sams Tit are going to be in for a world of hurt when the EBT stops working. The more zombies weakened by hunger and malnutrition before they rouse themselves to start ransacking their neighbors pantries, the better. With luck starvation and hygiene-related diseases will quietly kill most of those who act as a sponge on the productive members of society, and myself and others will not have to resort to more direct means to pacify the dregs of humanity.

      Peace be with you,

      As long as people continue to force their neighbor to pay for their welfare, educating their children, health care and the like they will NEVER walk in liberty through Christ. Real liberty. It is to covet thy neighbors goods” and is the Tenth Commandment by my Father. This is why “Israel” was continually put under bondage starting from Cain’s city states to Pharaohs’ Egypt all the way to Rome and Caesar and continuing into this day.

      Quit using the benefits. Give them back seeing as they are voluntary. Get rid of the mark called the socialist insecurity number. These systems are exactly what we are called out of as it is written “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Use of the numbers and “benefits” is your consent that it is good, and you will be fully regulated by the “police powers” since you belong to them.

      When you give your responsibility to the STATE and do not maintain it under God, you are under a DIFFERENT law that is strange and foreign to my Father. An image if you will. This is why He told us as it is written,

      1Sa 8:18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

      Anyone who is confused as to what belongs to Caesar let me tell you. NOTHING. For it is written, the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof the world; and they that dwell therein. He gave us a King and it is not Caesar.

      And you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

            The honey bee is not a native of north America. The honey bee arrived with the first Europeans. And corn Squash beans ect where being successfully grown before the white men arrived. Other bees & insects will pollinate the crops. Now honey bees are something I happen to know about. Ive kept bees for many years. I captured wild swarms. Ive robbed bee trees. Its a insect called the Avvoria Mite that has killed the bees. The trucking of thousands of hives all across the country for commercial pollinazation that spread the Mite. most of my bees died from the mite infestation. Insecticides don’t kill the worker bees. the worker bees don’t live long enough to die from residual poison buildup. During the honey flow a worker bee wears out and dies in less than a week

It kind of toughens you up and sets your resolve.

      People who through one event or another can find themselves in a vicious ‘circle’ a deep rut they cannot seem to climb out of, yet I see foreigners come to America with just the clothes on their backs and they succeed. To them the rut or hole doesn’t even exist, they just step over it and persevere.

      How do some people overcome all the obstacles in their way and make it in this world while others cannot seem to see the chains that bind them, or the ditch they are in? I believe it has a lot to do with will power. The saying used to be- “Where there is a will there is a way!” I say – “If there is a way, I WILL find it!”
      The American people (and others around the world) have lost hope and given up trying to find ‘the way’.

They WANT to work, but between federal government intervention in taxes, ‘social programs’ and a myriad of other federally created hardships, they have lost their jobs, and possibly their futures. Bailing out the banks and the BIG Fortune 50 companies (GM, for example) KILLED Main Street because Main Street didn’t get ANY help, ESPECIALLY from this bodaciously corrupt Administration. Bernanke kept printing money, and our politicians (on BOTH sides of the aisle) kept spending it faster than Ben’s presses could create it. Still, they managed to add somewhere in the neighborhood of FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS that our great, great, great, great grandkids will be paying off indefinitely. Ask a Democrat when they think all this debt will be paid off. Watch for that ‘Deer in the headlights’ look. I have actually heard people state that, ‘Well, it won’t be in my lifetime, so why should I give a shit?’ !!! Soooo, how long have you been sterile?

      My point is that ALL of the unemployed are not sitting home, smoking dope, eating Cheetos and jerking off. Granted, some are…ask the Doc who’s Orange today…but so many people have been royally screwed by our own government, it’s just not fair, right or just that we lump everyone together.

      Scary times indeed. My husband works in grocery retail. I will not go further with what he does. He tells me how AWFUL it is at the beginning of the month at the store. Once the first allotment of food stamps is released, the store is busy from open to close. He works for an independent mom and pop. As soon as those doors open at 6 am on the first snap release day, at least 50 or more people are waiting in the parking lot. The walmart up the road used to stay open 24 hours, but decided to shut the doors at midnight because they did not want to hire more people to come in and work that late. Why? Once the snap is released after midnight, the store is flooded with shoppers.

      He told me the other day, at least every person coming through those lines have a snap card. He kept a count last month in the middle of the month. He said that out of 225 people coming through the line from 6 am to 6pm, 175 of those people used a snap benefit card. Only 50 people paid on their own. That’s a frightening reality.

      I can also tell you that in our state, if you are able bodied, young, and can work, you do NOT have to be seeking employment to qualify for SNAP. That’s right, you read this correctly. They are no longer enforcing people to go look for work in order to qualify. I heard it straight out of a 26 year old woman’s mouth, who is able bodied, married, and has a child. In fact she told me the woman at the welfare office told her “We are not really going to check into that”. They are RELAXING the qualifications to get food benefits. It used to be, you HAD to be seeking employment or working at least part time.

      My husband also tells me that at least EVERYONE coming through those lines using snap are buying JUNK and high dollar cuts of meat.

      Our gas stations are strict here. You cannot buy hot foods with the SNAP and you cannot use SNAP in this state to purchase fast food, yet.

      Tectonic Summary
      Seismotectonics of Mexico
      Located atop three of the large tectonic plates, Mexico is one of the world’s most seismically active regions. The relative motion of these crustal plates causes frequent earthquakes and occasional volcanic eruptions. Most of the Mexican landmass is on the westward moving North American plate. The Pacific Ocean floor south of Mexico is being carried northeastward by the underlying Cocos plate. Because oceanic crust is relatively dense, when the Pacific Ocean floor encounters the lighter continental crust of the Mexican landmass, the ocean floor is subducted beneath the North American plate creating the deep Middle American trench along Mexico’s southern coast. Also as a result of this convergence, the westward moving Mexico landmass is slowed and crumpled creating the mountain ranges of southern Mexico and earthquakes near Mexico’s southern coast. As the oceanic crust is pulled downward, it melts; the molten material is then forced upward through weaknesses in the overlying continental crust. This process has created a region of volcanoes across south-central Mexico known as the Cordillera Neovolcánica.
      The area west of the Gulf of California, including Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, is moving northwestward with the Pacific plate at about 50 mm per year. Here, the Pacific and North American plates grind past each other creating strike-slip faulting, the southern extension of California’s San Andreas fault. In the past, this relative plate motion pulled Baja California away from the coast forming the Gulf of California and is the cause of earthquakes in the Gulf of California region today.
      Mexico has a long history of destructive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In September 1985, a magnitude 8.1 earthquake killed more than 9,500 people in Mexico City. In southern Mexico, Volcán de Colima and El Chichón erupted in 2005 and 1982, respectively. Paricutín volcano, west of Mexico City, began venting smoke in a cornfield in 1943; a decade later this new volcano had grown to a height of 424 meters. Popocatépetl and Ixtaccíhuatl volcanos (“smoking mountain” and “white lady”, respectively), southeast of Mexico City, occasionally vent gas that can be clearly seen from the City, a reminder that volcanic activity is ongoing. In 1994 and 2000 Popocatépetl renewed its activity forcing the evacuation of nearby towns, causing seismologists and government officials to be concerned about the effect a large-scale eruption might have on the heavily populated region. Popocatépetl volcano last erupted in 2010.

      • Be informed says:

        @ River Rat. Everytime the Cocos plate moves, it puts tension on the Caribbean plate. The northern and eastern part of the Caribbean plate last broke in similiar magnitude to the Japanese earthquake that was 9 back about 600 years ago. This is quite overdue. If there is enough dynamic overshoot WHEN the Caribbean plate goes, it could send some serious tsunamis up the south to central side of the Atlantic sea coast. Even northern areas like Boston would get a decent size tsunami, maybe even to 10-15 feet. The Cocos plate also affect the San Andreas.

        By the way as usual, the USGS downgraded any earthquake around populated areas. This is really a 6.8 as origninally posted.

      OPINION: Russia Could Station Missiles in Europe in Response to NATO Moves

      MOSCOW, May 7 (RIA Novosti) – Russia could deploy short-range Iskander missiles in the country’s westernmost Kaliningrad region if NATO decides to strengthen its military presence in Eastern Europe, Lt. Gen. Yevgeny Buzhinsky told RIA Novosti.
      “Russia is a nuclear power,” he said. “If NATO becomes more active, we will deploy a division of Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad Region,” added Buzhinsky, who previously headed the department of international agreements in the Russian Defense Ministry.
      US Air Force General Philip Breedlove said Tuesday that NATO will consider permanently stationing troops in parts of Eastern Europe following the increased tensions over Ukraine, Reuters reported.
      “I think this is something we have to consider and we will tee this up for discussion through the leaderships of our nations to see where that leads,” he was quoted as saying.
      Defense and foreign ministers of NATO member states as well as senior commanders are to examine the alliance’s presence in Europe prior to a summit of NATO leaders in Wales this September, Breedlove said.
      “I don’t see any potential danger if a military conflict between NATO and Russia in Europe involving ground forces,” Buzhinsky told RIA Novosti. “There is no military threat [to Russia], this is an information war,” he said.
      NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said earlier the alliance will boost air patrols over Eastern Europe and dispatch extra ships to the Baltic and Mediterranean Seas due to the crisis in Ukraine. The Russian Foreign Ministry said that NATO was attempting to use the Ukrainian crisis as a pretext to unite the alliance’s members and to push for Moscow’s isolation.
      Rasmussen also claimed last month that “Russia is speaking and behaving not as a partner, but as an adversary.”
      Franz Klintsevich, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, told RIA Novosti that deployment of NATO infrastructure in Eastern Europe and in the Baltic States endangers these countries and Russia should diplomatically deliver this message to the leadership of these states.
      “A serious object in the Lithuanian territory, any modern nuclear weapon – means Lithuania basically doesn’t exist anymore, and politicians should understand that, this is a serious issue,” Franz Klintsevich said.

      Just consider all the manufacturing jobs that have been sent to Asia as a result of NAFTA.GATT has been nearly as bad for Americans and now fast forward to 2014 and we are staring directly into the Trans Pacific Trade Partnership that spells even more disaster for American households: the end of national sovereignty and replaced by corporate oligarchy.
      More small businesses are closing down than ever before and inflation is being covered over. The truth is the dollar is about to collapse and for those who haven’t yet caught on: The IMF has issued funds to the Ukraine in the form of SDR or Special Drawing Rights, not in dollars. So what does that tell you?
      The dollar is about to tank and the financial house of cards that is being propped up by the Fed and the White House and the MSM will no longer be able to continue to pull the wool over everybody’s eyes. Make no mistake about…collapse is coming. It’s now just a matter of time. The dollar will become worthless, your savings account will be pilfered. Peoples safety account boxes are now being pilfered by the banksters.
      Being prepared for what’s coming is the best way to survive for the coming collapse. Complaining about welfare abuse is one thing but shouldn’t be taking up our time…those people are the ones who are going to be in the hurt locker when it all comes toppling down.
      Yes it’s a shame that people are using EBT cards for other than food but if it this is going to be stopped then a better way of preventing it needs to be put in place.
      The corporate welfare, bank bail outs in the amount of hundreds of billions of dollars called Quantitative Easing has done more damage to America than those who misuse their EBT. I agree those on the program should be using common sense but that appears to be in short supply these days.
      cheers.

      When everything crashed in the 20′ and 30′s. we had open food lines where people stood on the street in long lines to get something to eat. When WW2 started we didn’t have food lines. Today we have EBT and welfare checks going to people. Can anyone say WW3?
      I don’t mind helping people that need help, but for the Zombies and Leaches that are 5th and 6th generation of Zombies and Leaches is where I draw the line. I’m tired at this S%$t. I’m about 48% tax on my income. If I was at 20% I could help my family out a lot better.

        Uncle Porky,

        The biggest welfare queens by far are huge corporations. If the poor are taking all the money then why are all the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? But you pigs never investigate the rich, the powerful, or those in blue, do you? I see on The Daily Sheeple that the corrupt, shit eating FBI rats are launching an investigation into those militiamen at the Bundy ranch. Not a single word about BLM pigs pointing sniper rifles, sicing dogs, and tazering unarmed protesters; and tackling elderly female cancer patients. That is why the militia was assembled. To protect the innocent from you pig terrorists. But surprise, surprise, after picking a fight, all the tough guys suddenly vanished when the militia showed up to prosecute that fight. A man who is not afraid to get shot (mostly due to lack of experience) is a dangerous thing indeed, isn’t it? I know most of you pigs flunked out of college, but did it ever occur to you numbskulls that pointing rifles at people tends to make them want to acquire a force equalizer? Its amazing to me how you pigs can tolerate getting cursed up and down at the academy, but you cant handle one citizen arguing with you. “Im not gonna have a discussion with you, sir” aka “Im losing the argument and I know it.” Today I see two pigs in NY beat a nonresistant minor unconscious and then charged him with assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. In Al pigs killed a minor by sticking an object down his throat, looking for drugs that were never found. You better have some civvies in your GOOD bag. That uniform is not going to help you.

      OPINION: Russia Forced to React to NATO’s Eastward Enlargement

      MOSCOW, May 8 (RIA Novosti), Daria Chernyshova – Russia will have to react if NATO is foolish enough to set up bases in western Ukraine, Asia Times correspondent Pepe Escobar told RIA Novosti Thursday.
      “If NATO is foolish enough to attempt to set up bases in Western Ukraine, for instance, make sure there will be a forceful Russia reaction,” Escobar said. “So Russia’s policy will continue to be defensive and reactive – but that does not mean surrendering. Georgia was a red line. Crimea was a red line,” he said.

      The welfare system, including SSI, is overwhelmed. It has virtually no oversight. This could be just natural due to sheer volume or it could be by design. There are “activists” within the system who are signing up everybody as fast as they can. Also, remember that nearly a million people fell off unemployment bennies recently. Guess where they are going to show up soon. Intentional destruction of the country or something else? You figured right. It’s intentional.

      Allen West: Convict Jackson Jr. Gets $8.7K A Month Disability For ‘Mood Disorder.’ I Should Be So Crazy

      By Allen West
      Whenever you hear our dear politicians in Washington DC say there’s nothing more to cut or that they’re just like us, let me give you a friendly reminder. As Breitbart reported after his jail sentencing, convicted ex-congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) receives $8,700 per month in government disability pay, as well as a partial federal pension of $45,000.
      That generous $8,700 in disability comes thanks to Jackson’s sudden development of a “mood disorder” as the federal government began looking to indict him. Jackson, who was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison, had no history of mental illness during his prior 17 years in Congress.
