Get Ready for the “Trump is Starving Children”…..

Nobody’s Opinion

Get ready for the upcoming “President Trump is starving our children!!” pictures, if the shutdown goes on for too long. 

Part of the shut down includes people not getting their food stamps. CNN, MSNBC, and all the networks have their cameramen out right now ready for that “My children are starving” picture.

You can bet on it.

On my local news station tonight, it was reported that three grocery chains in the area could not take food stamps due to the government shut down. They said there were a LOT of customers really pissed off.

Oooooooo…my. In my little town, I always wondered about why anybody got food stamps. In any school in my town, kids can eat for free: breakfast, lunch AND dinner. Even during the summer.
And recently, our newly elected black politician here in Ferguson country, said that no longer were men going to have to pay child support.

And why should they? The rest of us that live here feed them all.

I started to wonder about a woman who was in my local swim club….how much would SHE suffer?

By the way, she is very white.

Every day, this 60-year-old woman would do 16 laps in the pool. She told us all she was on disability. She had been on disability and living off the government and food stamps for half of her life. Sometime when she was younger, she had a heart operation, got on disability, and never had to work again.

I always thought, if she can do 16 continuous laps in the swimming pool, she could work.

Her mother was always complaining about her. She begged her child to get a job to help out with the bills. She lived with her mother, and her mother was on Social Security, and her daughter never helped her pay a bill, or gave her rent, but finally ended up putting her mother in a home, sold the house, and now lives almost for free in some kind of free housing.

And she likes to BRAG about how she has gotten by with being supported by the government all these years.

Yes, it’s hard not to tell her off.

Having said that, the fraud and waste in food stamps is overwhelming, and President Trump, is doing what President Clinton ended up doing before Obama got rid of it. Remember? He made it so you had to WORK for your welfare. People got off food stamps and started to work. By the way, Clinton was FORCED to do it…Obama…got rid of that Clinton ruling and welfare came roaring back.

We here, in the democratically run districts, will feel the pain more. We will have to pay higher taxes to make it up. But in the long run, getting people back to work, will save the federal government billions of dollars.

This from Judicial Watch:

SNAP is a federal program but states are responsible for distributing the benefit and they get big bucks from Uncle Sam to get the job done. Though federal regulations establish uniform requirements for managing administrative funds, once local governments get the money there’s no follow up from the feds, leaving the system open to fraud and corruption.

The USDA watchdog reveals the problem has persisted for years and that despite the “large variances” in SNAP administrative costs the agency doesn’t bother monitoring or coordinating with states to “assist in containing costs, minimizing variances, and sharing best practices.” The audit attributes the problem to a lack of effective oversight. In other words, yet another swollen and derelict government agency failing miserably to carry out its basic duties.

A record 46.5 million people get food stamps from the government, but the probe only includes the ten states with the highest rolls so the waste is probably much larger. The figures are broken down in the report by state and county and they’re enough to outrage any sensible, taxpaying citizen. California leads in both charts, spending $825,316,195 a year to give 2,019,272 residents food stamps. San Francisco County spends a startling $27,947,139 a year to give just 32,074 residents food stamps and Los Angeles County $187,426,575 annually to distribute the benefit to 573,282. Other big spenders are New Jersey ($138,400,032 for 439,695 food-stamp cases) and North Dakota ($7,521,986 for 25,011). Hamilton County in Ohio did the most efficient job, spending only $5.70 to administer each of its 61,772 cases every month.

Earlier this year federal authorities in south Florida busted the largest food-stamp fraud operation in U.S. history. Twenty-two defendants in the largely black and Hispanic areas of Miami-Dade County known as Opa-Locka and Hialeah swindled the government out of $13 million by fraudulently trading food stamps for cash. The crooked vendors operated food and produce stands at a local flea market as part of First

Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to eradicate “food deserts,” common in poor, minority communities where fresh, healthy food is tough to find or often unavailable. The feds say the business owners and their employees let food-stamp recipients use their welfare benefit to get cash in exchange for a cut of the money. They swiped the recipient’s SNAP card for an inflated amount, doled out cash and kept a percentage. In most instances the recipient didn’t actually get food, according to federal authorities.

Clearly, there are those who do need help. Having said that, most of the illegals who come into the country get food stamps.

And this nobody thinks, if you could cut out all the fraud and waste in the federal government, the national debt would disappear in ten years.

President Trump, is once again, trying to help fix another government wasteland. Just imagine, if the illegals can’t get food stamps due to the government shut down, they just might stay in Mexico.

He truly IS a genius.
