Food Stamp Nation: What a Modern Day Bread Line Looks Like (Infographic)

 

With digital technology being used for all manner of government distributions, it’s difficult to overtly distinguish between the severity of the Great Depression of the 1930′s and today’s economic crisis.

But just because we don’t see thousands of hungry people lined up for hours at a time at their local soup kitchen today doesn’t mean the lines don’t exist.

Today bread lines have been removed with the help of technology; EBT cards are filled with Government money for Food Stamp participants to purchase food at local retailers.

If all EBT recipients shopped at only Walmart Super Centers for ALL their SNAP benefits, then this is how the Bread Line would look each month– 14,588 people.

There are 3051 Walmart Super Centers in USA and 44,510,598 participants in SNAP (2011), making the average SNAP line at each Walmart at 14,588 people.

The Modern Era’s Bread Lines are not visible because the business is handled discreetly through EBT Cards

The line at a single Walmart, if we include both adults and children receiving SNAP benefits, would be over 7 miles long! Read the rest of this entry »

Voter Machine in Las Vegas Auto-Checking Obama

PolitiChicks.tv has just received confirmation that a voter in Las Vegas  tried voting for Governor Mitt Romney but the machine automatically checked “Obama” multiple times instead.

Our source said:

“Yesterday I went to an early voting site at Centennial Center in Las Vegas,  NV. I went with my 19 year old son who was a first-time voter. I went to an open  machine and inserted my card. When the selections came up, all of the candidate  pairings were listed and I touched the box for Romney/Ryan. The checkmark  appeared next to President Obama’s name. I touched the check mark removing it  and touched the box next to Romney’s name again. Again, the checkmark appeared  next to Obama. I motioned for an observer to come over and showed him. I touched  the mark next to Obama, removing it and again touched Romney’s name. The  checkmark appeared next to Obama. At this point, the gentleman next to me was  looking over my partition to see. I touched the checkmark, again removing it  from Obama’s name and selected Romney. The checkmark appeared next to Romney. I  double-checked the paper ballot to ensure that Romney was indeed selected and  cast my ballot. I didn’t make a fuss but have called our local election  department only to get recordings. I also wrote an email to the Clark County  Election Department about the incident. My son said that he had no issues  casting his ballot.”

I called the Las Vegas GOP office but haven’t gotten a response from anyone  about this yet.
