    Dallas is how large? VS how large is the US? Making assumptions based off of what happens in your neck of the woods and applying it to the whole is not a good idea.

    I'm fairly confident almost any metropolitan area has at least one of these; A&P, Safeway, WaL Mart, Kroger, Tom Thumb, etc.

    I don't live in a metropolitan area.

    You mean if Obama wasn't waging a completely illegal war in Libya the United States might have a spare half million for food stamps in New Mexico?

    Well, no it wouldn't really.

    You see, there's this thing the Mayor likes to call "The Constitution". This Constitution thingy says that the Congress is not allowed to spend money on objects of charity.

    But, seriously, if the left cares so much, is there anything stopping them from asking Micheal Moore to share? He looks like he could use a half-million dollar cut in his food budget...

    Hmmm....let's see...if they cut just 10 SEIU governent employees, the State of New Mexico would have saved enough money to continue the Food Stamp Supplement program.

    What's that socialist saying they're always hurling at us (yes, the Mayor means "vomiting forth")?

    Right.

    "Greatest good for the greatest number."

    So, cut a handful of SEIU thugs, and save the Snickers for the Old Ladies....

    Then again, milk wouldn't cost five dollars a gallon if the government didn't artificially prop up prices for food...

    If a person can work ten to twenty hours, they can get their asses out in the real world and buy their food with their own money.

    If I remember correctly, Walmart is the number 1 grocer in the U.S.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You didn't say wal-mart, but so what if they are wealthy? They give millions to charities, plus they pay taxes.
    What does that have anything to do with the price of milk or food stamps to buy that milk? Now wal-mart is somehow the bad guy? I'd call them the good guy, for having cheaper milk than most places, paying taxes when half of America doesn't and giving millions to charity. Now, about this person who is using food stamps...he's obviously not paying income taxes, he wouldn't have money to give to charity either and wal-marts taxes are paying for his foodstamps. Yea... Bad bad wal-mart for not giving the guy the milk for free.
    Thank goodness I doubt many people on food stamps would feel that way. They are probably grateful for them and grateful to Wal-mart where the prices are cheaper and they can get more food.
    Where do you come up with stuff?
