101 Million Americans Get Food Aid from Federal Gov’t


Is America a socialist country?  Perhaps it is an ineffective socialist country, but when one third of Americans are receiving government assistance for food, common understandings of the nature of “our country” need to be reexamined.





Very insightful. For a long time I’ve been trying to raise the consciousness about our incremental slide towards a police state. A “patriot act” here, a covert domestic surveillance program there. A “free speech zone” here, a curfew there. Some “enhanced interrogation” here, a summary execution there. A tear gas canister to the head here, a baton to the stomach there. With the crackdown on Occupy, I think we’re finally at the point where the mainstream is starting to connect the dots.
