Oh The Irony!

Postby Woods Walker » Mon Feb 27, 2012 9:12 am

I just saw this...........................

"The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because THE ANIMALS MAY GROW DEPENDENT AND NOT LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES". [emphasis mine]



My daughter is a D.C. based reporter for an on-line publication that serves agri-business, and she covers a lot of the House ag committee hearings and other gov agencys and reports on them. She told me that close to EIGHTY PERCENT of the current farm bill is for WELFARE FOOD PROGRAMS!

Most of this baseline ($772 billion, or 78%) is for domestic nutrition assistance programs, primarily the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
