What Will Happen When the ‘Free Stuff’ Ends?

The Great Recession never ended, despite what the mainstream media and political hacks tell you. It has just been covered over as if putting paper over a damaged wall. If you look closely you can spot the truth.

The administration’s unemployment numbers are false. The actual unemployment rate counting all those not working — not just those considered “short-term discouraged workers” (what the government counts) — is 22.7 percent, according to Shadowstats. This is the number based on the measure used prior to 1994 to count unemployment. That means more than one in every five Americans who could be working is not. For comparison, at the height of the Great Depression  unemployment was 24.75 percent.

Food stamps are the new bread lines. The food stamp program is a clever ruse that hides the actual number of people who are on assistance. If the media were showing lines of people waiting for soup and bread there would be a national revolt.

The number of people receiving food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) has exceeded 45 million for 56 straight months, according to the Department of Agriculture. This means an astonishing 14 percent of Americans are fed by government. And 21.3 percent (52.2 million) of the U.S. population is on one or more means-tested government programs. Still more — almost every American? — get special tax breaks, incentives or treatment, which is yet another method of redistribution of wealth and more social engineering.

In 1969, when the U.S. Department of Agriculture began tracking food stamp participation, 2.87 million Americans were on food stamps. That’s just 1.4 percent of the population. Food stamp participation has increased 1,470 percent in 47 years, while the U.S. population has increased only 56 percent.
