    I complain about the party and the Socialists, the Parasites and Ignoramuses that creates Parasite Nation... you know it, but good try.

    The most pathetic thing in the world is to have people looking to government to solve their problems... to organize their lives. To be dependent on government. Then to have them demand government, to expect government to do for them what they should do for themselves.

    Disgusting. And that is Parasite Nation. Stealing from the doers to spread the wealth around.... after all... they didn't build that.

    The clarion call of Parasite Nation was pretty clear during the election...
    REVENGE!

    Parasite Nation fear some people making money, lots of money so the fark the masses.

    Why not cut taxes, let freedom reign, and grow the economy by motivating people to be prosperous? Let them keep their money so they can create jobs?

    But no... Parasite Nation is too Narrow too Envious to let that happen.

    If Parasite Nation worked... why did Obama fail? He spent 6 Trillion.
    The question you really need to ask is why did Romney fail harder? I'm sure calling half the country parasites had nothing to do with it.

    There will always be fluctuation, for example from October 08 to December 09 it dropped sharply, only to rebound later.

    There was something going on during this time. Hmmmm what was it i put my finger on it

    A failed on-going Presidency perhaps? The by-product of Clintonomics maybe? The choices are so many but the answers apparently so elusive that it would take that old broad from Murder She Wrote to figure it out for some of you.....

    There is only one admitted Socialist. Most Democrats are members of the Socialists of Amerika Partei (SAPs), they know better than to admit it.

    Doh!... ugh... DemSocialist... I complain about a party and their hangers on (Socialists, Parasites and Ignormuses) that vote for and thereby breed misery... and grow Parasite Nation.

    I enjoy every opportunity to explain Parasite Nation, so please... keep it up. Some people just might be ashamed about voting for a breeder of failure and decay, and be a bit wiser in the future. I do not expect you to fall into this camp, but I do enjoy your treating most political issues in a naive manner akin to T-ball. Zimmer... up to bat... a Parasite Nation adherent has provided yet another opportunity to crush one.

    Yes but i think you dont realize that no one is really calling for the end of federal aid. Both parties agree that we must give some sort of federal aid to the "parasites".

    There is only one admitted Socialist.
    Yes. There is only one socialist in our gov.

    Most Democrats are members of the Socialists of Amerika Partei (SAPs), they know better than to admit it.
    Yea sure...
    Anyone is a socialist who disagrees with you right?



    Doh!... ugh... DemSocialist... I complain about a party and their hangers on (Socialists, Parasites and Ignormuses) that vote for and thereby breed misery... and grow Parasite Nation.
    Their "hangers on" are poor people? So you have a problem with poor people correct?

    You have not explained to "paraiste nation" you simply call them paraistes.

    Obviously more people who don't care that Obama has failed and believe in Parasite Nation voted for the leader of the Parasite Party.

    That's how it goes. Parasite Nation... Socialists, Parasites and Ignoramuses won.

    Re: Food stamps reach record 47.1 million

    This development reflects a persistent high unemployment rate, among other things. From the news article:

    Unemployment, which generally correlates with food-stamp enrollment, rose to 7.9 percent last month and has been between 7.8 percent and 8.3 percent all year. Food-stamp use in recent months has also risen as part of the federal government’s response to natural disasters, and may increase further because of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated parts of the U.S. East Coast last week. New Jersey’s government today announced immediate food-stamp benefits for people affected by the storm.

    Food Stamp recipients include low-income persons, the disabled (including disabled veterans), retirees, some active members of the Armed Forces, among others. The eligibility rules are as follows:

    Eligibility

    In September, there were 3.561 million job openings and 12.088 million unemployed workers. The IMF's 2012 Article IV consultation with the U.S. found that 3.5 percentage points of the nation's unemployment rate are the result of structural unemployment (mismatch between skills-job requirements), which is abnormally high. In addition to the above figures, there were 18.405 million workers who were employed part-time for economic reasons. Many of these people have dependents e.g., children.

    In terms of unemployment, female veterans suffered from a 9.5% unemployment rate. Worse off are the Gulf War Era II (Iraq/Afghanistan) female vets who suffer from a 15.5% unemployment rate.

    I, for one, would not call these people "parasites." Many utilize food stamps on account of circumstances beyond their control. Some of them put their lives at stake for the nation, finished military service honorably, and are now caught in very difficult times.

    Having said this, the statistic and deeper unemployment data point to a policy challenge that needs greater attention than it has received. A comprehensive and creative approach to policy will be needed to accelerate job creation, as well as to make inroads in the structural component to unemployment.
