    Why don't YOU make up YOUR mind as to what I am, and I'll fix my registration, since you clearly know what I am better than I know what I am.
    I'm Checking with the AKC. They'll know.

    1) I'm a she;
    2) I gather you didn't bother reading the article I provided showing how it is that food stamps actually benefit the economy;
    3) most of your post was rambling, and it is clear you think a fact is something you BELIEVE to be the case.
    4) I've yet to figure out how to separate quotes in order to answer each item individually.

    But here is what I know: You are wrong about food stamps and Pelosi was right, and I provided info. to show you this to be the case; you are wrong about Obama and spending. You just are. Now, either you care about being informed, or you care about battering the opposition. Your choice.

    "In addition, bright people are aware that Obama's spending is actually lower than Bush's."

    FactCheck.org : Geithner’s GDP Whopper


    "The administrationís own estimates project spending next year that is higher as a percentage of the economy than in any year since the end of World War II. The average projected by Obamaís budget officials is significantly higher than the average under Reagan or Bush (father or son)."

    Please don't use "right" and Pelosi in the same sentence, it's an oxymoron. Also please don't attempt to use the Keynesian hallucinations of aggregate demand and food stamps. You may think it makes sense in an academic closet but in Realville, it's simply nonsense. Removing wealth from an economy and then reinserting it and having a magical multiplication effect is magic dust. The government can only obtain money three ways, extort it from citizens in the form of taxes, print it, or borrow it. None of those three options is conducive for free market capitalistic economies. Claiming otherwise and citing a "study" is evidence of more lab gobbleygook vomited forth by Keynesians.
