Food Stamps Hit New Record: 47,791,996

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

The latest data released from the USDA yesterday shows a record 47,791,996 people on food stamps (click chart to enlarge):

Also, the percentage of the population on food stamps hit a record high in 2012 at 14.83%. See the fifth chart down on my Food Stamps page. You might think that our policy of mass legal immigration would dilute that percentage, but that is not so. Obviously, our economy cannot absorb a million fresh bodies per year.

Virginia’s FeedMore food bank provided 15 million meals last year, and is still having trouble meeting the demand – even with so many people already on food stamps. See this blog for the story.

A Nation of Immigrants – On Food Stamps

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

As the Oligarchy campaigns for an even bigger tidal wave of legal immigration, their captive media is trumpeting the “we are a nation of immigrants” meme. While we are indeed a nation of immigrants, that is only half of the story. The other half is mass poverty, unemployment, and 48 million people on food stamps.

The blue line on the chart below shows the cumulative total of legal immigration since 1975. As of 2011, that total stands at 30.8 million. The red line shows the number of individuals who received food stamps each year (click chart to enlarge):

Perhaps you are shouting “correlation is not causality” at your screen. Fine. But if you believe that there is no relationship at all between these two trends, then I submit that you might be insane.

New Food-Stamp Record: 47,710,324

Friday, December 7th, 2012

The USDA reported today that the number of people on food stamps in September surged to a record 47,710,324 – a jump of 607,559 from the previous month. The USDA reports data with a two-month lag, so this total does not include the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Click chart to enlarge:

The economy is creating jobs, but obviously not enough to keep up with “population growth” (a.k.a. “mass immigration”).

New Food-Stamp Record: 46,681,833

Friday, October 5th, 2012

A couple of days ago, I speculated that the USDA was holding back the food-stamp report until after the Presidential debate because it was another bad number. And I was right. Not only do we have a new record, but they released the report at 4:39pm on a Friday afternoon when nobody was looking.

In any case, it wasn’t such a bad report. Only 11,532 souls advanced to the brink of starvation in July (the latest reporting month.) Of course, since we were already at a record level, this tiny addition breaks the record again.

Now, you might be wondering: If the economy is creating jobs, why do the food-stamp rolls keep rising? And there are two big reasons:

Reason #1 – Mass immigration – We are not creating enough jobs to keep up with one million legal immigrants per year, in addition to regular population growth.

Reason #2 – Bad Jobs – A large percentage of newly-created jobs are low-paid, and many newly-hired people still qualify for food stamps. From HuffPo:

“Three-fifths of all jobs lost during the recession paid middle-income wages, while roughly three-fifths of new jobs created during the economic recovery pay low wages…”

Laid off as middle-class, hired back as working-class. The planned liquidation of the middle class is right on schedule.
