NOT states " Pick CNN or Huff n Puff or whatever you want.  Unless they are out and out lying, Obama and the Democrats increased Food Stamps.  Obama - the Food Stamp President as he will be known. Trump's goal is less people on Food Stamps and MORE people working - something the left doesn't like! "

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's be totally honest OK NOT !!!

 There were two very important factors to list when speaking fairly about the increase in food stamps or SNAP.

 

        1)  The number of food stamp beneficiaries ticked upward under G.W. Bush due to his policies that broadened eligibility for the program and more aggressive efforts to get eligible Americans to apply for the food stamp benefits. These G.W. Bush policies remained in effect under Obama.

       2) The Great Recession from 2007 - 2009 , which drove the number of food stamp recipients to record highs.

 

 So yes , the number did increase under Obama , but lets be fair in explaining why !!!

What corporate welfare caused the great depression?? I don't think we had food stamps back then.

 Loyal Americans do not use their office to enrich the family business.

 

Now that we have resolved the "loyal Americans" issue, shall we talk about the realities of how politicis (sadly) really work??


 


You are right, they don't rk9152, and that is exactly what Trump and family are doing. Loyal Americans don't collude with the Russians and Putin to influence our elections either. Politics wouldn't work this way if all Americans, including those with Blind Hatred for the Left, would show Trump that they will not stand for it instead of blindly following and supporting him


Once again, meeting with lobbyist/lawyer is not "colluding with the Russians and Putin". Can we not put that one to bed.

 

Can you point out any examples of "blind hatred for the left"? Sounds like just parroting the truth about the left as a cover.

 

I know of no one "blindly following President Trump". Where is there to go that he is "leading us" (supposedly). I personally did support him as opposition to the Republican establishment and I certainly supported him as opposition to Hillary.

 

Since that time I have defended common sense in this rather than let the pettiness of tRump, homosexual references to his mouth, agent orange, and the rest go by.

 

Then when the supposed "collusion" comes up, I defend, not the President but logic. Example - meeting with a lobbyist/lawyer legally admitted to the country by the Obama (notice the "adult" capital "O") Administration is not treason. When I argue against that dumb idea, I am not defending the President, I am defending common sense. To me, that is the whole point of "discussion boards".


Why don't you believe the emails that Donnie, Jr. released?


I do. He was offered "opposition research" and he said, "yep". He found out it was something else and he walked. What is your point?

 

Again, if you really have no interest in discussing the topic - post anything and I promise you the last word.

Even if one agrees with the Trump's goals, as stated by NH, that means nothing as he can change his positions in a heartbeat. Please note how he's signing off on the Obama Iran Nuclear Treaty for the 2nd time.

 

The only thing that matters to Trump is his massive ego and winning. He's not a conservative and he has no core values.

The GOP is responsible for Food Stamps?????  Just look at the chart and you will see what YOUR Democrat President Obama did for food stamps:
