FOOD STAMPS, PIGGLY WIGGLY STORES AND MORE

Are you hungry? Times getting rough? Had to give back your AIG bonus and your kids are stilling calling to borrow a few Thou? Buddy can ya spare a hundred? Is that what's bothering you Bunky--Well, lift your head up high and take a walk in the sun with dignity and stick-to-it-ness and ya show the world, ya show the world where to get off and you'll never give up, never give up, never give up...that ship!

I digress.

We all know the economy is bad because George Bush legislated new Fanny Mae rules years before he took office, giving forcing all the poor and downtrodden to take out $95,000 loans for ghetto housing than wasn't worth $25,000. All this while Barney Frank was screaming, "stop this madness, you will kill the economy."

It certainly did happen that way because I looked into my Buck Rogers of the 22nd Century looking glass and read the Democratic Socialist States Collective Public Schools textbooks. And here I am in 2009, totally ignorant of the bill of goods my biracial slave master has been trying to sell me while flogging me with stimulus whips.

Back to hard times. According to my Mother Earth Magazine article, “Surviving Hard Times for Grown Up Hippies” you don't have to cash in your Government War Bonds if you live in Ohio, or maybe even a few other select states. Seems like Governor Strickland has teamed up with the Obama administration and started dishing out food stamps to the wealthy.

Yup, if you have a $300,000 house, drive a Mercedes and have $80,000 in the bank, you may be a redneck, ooops wrong line—you may be on food stamps. It seems there are a few in this fine rusty, old state who have learned the hidden secret of fine dinning. Just like a golden Fanny Mae loan, you no longer have to divulge your assets or the amount of cold hard cash stashed away in the First National Bank of Park Avenue.

This report flashed all over Ohio's television screens on the News Alive at Five last week and the torrid tale even made it to the CNN News Desk, that a woman who lived in the above abode with cash a flowing has been driving down to the Piggly Wiggly with food card in hand. Now my investigations have not been able to reveal the name or address of the Warren County woman, who has done nothing illegal (can you hear me Sir Dodd), nor of any other culprits. Sorry.

As of this moment there are no Acorn picketers demanding the slightly comfortable welfare recipients give the money back to Ohio via the Federal Government, nor likely will there be. But I must be frank, or Shelly--I receive a food card ( stamps are so passé ), but I live well under the poverty line and still waiting for the trickle up economy to save me. I was forced to forfeit the assets from the sale of my house when I became disabled. It certainly was not a $300,000 house like the babe from Warren. So the government keeps me in poverty and tosses a bit of help in the way of a food card.

I'm not crying, but Obama did make me weep with warm tears of joy last week when I received the letter stating the stimulus package has now raised my allotment of food I can purchase every month. Believe me folks it sure wasn't by very much, but now I am about $20 less poor richer now.

Which leads me to wonder, just how much money does that lady, whose name and address I do not know, make in food stamps per month. How many groceries can she stuff in that Mercedes before she is outed. Acorn, where are you when we need you.
