Food Stamp Recruiters, Bingo, and Parties…. 2.2 Billion in erroneous payments…,Oh Snap!!!  This has to stop.

How about making more jobs??!!

Please read and let me know what you think.


Food stamps are the most inefficient, vastly expanding social welfare program in the country, according to a new study.

Forty-seven million people participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, and costs have increased over 358 percent since 2000.

The increase in recent years cannot be attributed to the economic recession, according to Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, but lax eligibility requirements and an aggressive campaign by governments to boost their rolls.

“This program has expanded rapidly over the last decade in a way that is not justified by the recession that we went through,” Tanner said.

I'm new here, and I'm new to this posting stuff, so please bear with me.

I'm also a farmer, so I get all the latest details regarding ag. subsidies.

Let me tell you about the lastest brilliant program.


Greenhouses. In Nebraska. For growing edible vegetables only.

1) They must be 100 ft. long.

2) They should be 48 feet wide.  (so far so good)

3) They must have open endwalls. (no walls on 2 sides)

4) They cannot be heated. (see #3)

5) They must be located within 200 acres from a farmyard. (where are you going to get water?)

6) Uncle Sugar pays $1.04 per sq. ft. per year. ($4992.00 per year)

7) They pay the $4,992.00 for 4 years. ($19,968.00)

8) After 4 years, you get to keep the greenhouse and use it as you wish.

9) 200 applications for this program are available.


Can someone please tell me how anyone in Nebraska, can grow veggies, in an unheated greenhouse, with no endwalls, and no available water supply?

If it's warm enough to grow anything inside this thing, it's warm enough to grow them outside, no walls!


If 200 people signed up for this program:

3 million, 993 thousand, 600 dollars ($3,993,600.00) gets ripped from your pocket.

Multiply that times our 50 states= $199,680,000.00

That's 200 million dollars.

That my friend is a lot of veggies.

And, it's the truth.

You won't hear about this on ABC, NBC or CBS.
