Erbody knows the States party in power hands out the patronage jobs. Now that would be a republicans in the Southeast, Democrats in the Northeast and a mixed bag everywhere else.

I don't believe anything from either party. I think for myself.

I read some figures recently and approximately 20% of the population of the United States receives SNAP benefits. That's an astonishing number.

The government isn't satisfied with that number. Once they raise it to over 50% then they will have complete control

I read something of interest the other day. It seems that the Clinton Admin altered how the unemployment numbers were calculated so his numbers would improve. It seems that in order to look better than Reagan Clinton stopped counting long term discouraged workers as unemployed.

Cate? Didn't you brag about how low unemployment was under Clinton and point out it was higher under Reagan?
