Bullish for JPM, because they run the food stamp issuance overseas by way of Indian tele-services.

Let's hope for JPM that they can grow another 10% in that division next year...

It's all good as far as those highly desirous of creating total reliance on Big Brother are concerned.

And by the way:

The scarier thing is that before the downturn, we already had 30 million in the electronis soup lines.

It's okay, the Barrasso Heller Amendment is out there...

 

Barrasso Heller Amendment” to defund EPA Corps jurisdiction expansion. Call both your senators at (202) 224-3121. 
 
The EPA and Corps have published new regulations expanding the term “Navigable” so it could cover a bird feeder in your back yard. Don’t let the EPA and Corps get away with expanding their own jurisdiction and undermining the limits Congress placed on them by limiting their Jurisdiction to “Navigable Waters” in the Clean Water Act.

one month into his term, 911 happens?  So our presidents begin their terms in August? One month left in his second term, the market "crashes"?  So the market "crashed" in December and not October?

 

You seem to be using that fuzzy government math.  You should go long on a calculator and calendar.

At Wendy's we have plump juicy cheezeburgers. But we have to omit the tomato due to rising input costs, or wait was it El Nino? La Nina? Fuck it just try our cheeseburgers.

I've asked that question a couple of times, I've never received a response.  I assume that number is individuals, no?  Food stamps aren't issued to kids.  Though I assume the more kids you have, the more stamps you get.  So that number could reflect a total number.

One would assume individuals.  There are 115 million +/- households in the US.

How about you get off your fucking back for 15 minutes long enough to put your goddamn feet on the ground? Then we'll talk about prospects on providing for 15 fucking kids.

This is fucking ridiculous. I'm so depressed that people even give this shit the time of day. She should have thought about that on her... 3rd fucking kid. Maybe even her 7th. Hell, she could even wait til her 10th kid. But 5 more after that and it's someone elses fault? Fuck that. FUCK. THAT.

It blows my mind. People on my street even... they don't even know how they're going to provide for themselves and they're popping out kids like it's going out of style.

god's little miracles...
