    If you are a resident of CA, and are not married, and your gross income per year is $12,703, your food stamps will be $16.00 per month.

    In ct, you get up to 200$ per month, per person, in food stamps if you qualify.

    But with the "Go eff yourself" line you can bet your ass your post was reported.
    Well I reported YOU for your personal attack of "have you taken an economics course" attack.

    Its the same thing.

    So since YOU base a persons knowledge as only coming from kissing the behind of a professor, what have YOU taken.........

    (I have read lots of books.......and have 2 degrees that I burned)

    re: Food Stamp Use Climbs To Record, Reviving Campaign Issue [W:77]

    I have a small company doing home services. I employ two technicians in this season. They make more than I do at 10 bucks an hour right now. Right now, we are slow, but I have been stretching it to make sure they both get full time. Guess what happens if I pay double for their time... one goes home and I still make no money. Likely, they both end up job hunting in a market that is reeling from the sudden extreme change.

    I pay mimum plus over 2 bucks/hr because I started the business as much to keep others working as to keep myself working. There are 13 companies just like mine in the area employing as many as 15 people each (they don't pay quite as much as me). Our services are not necessities of life and our clientelle is incomes over 100k. They will simply cut back on our services if we raise our rates significantly. We'd end up paying twice as much to half as many people (assuming we don't go out of business since our costs of goods sold go up too).

    Not everyone is wall street.

    Why should Tess have to refute what you haven't even attempted to prove in the first place? Your current evidence is hearsay, spin and bull****.

    No offense, but your posts read like a poly sci/eco major confusing both disciplines---they just dont make any sense. If tried they would FUBAR the economy in days.

That doesn't matter squat if the US Dollar dies (dramatically lose it's buying power). People constantly miss the nasty consequences of a debased currency. They simply see prices skyrocketing without making the connection to the dying dollar. Do not forget this in the future. America already spends more on military matters than the rest of the world and do not even make enough stuff to pay for that. We are sending more money out than earning it right now ( been like this for a long time). The US military is rapidly bankrupting America right now. The military are a giant bureaucracy right now. None of the awesome weapons mean anything if the US Dollar are going to die. Sorry to depress you.
    Very nice. So care to comment on how defense is less than a quarter of spending and entitlement programs are 65%? The military isnt going to bankrupt us, everything else is.
