U.S. Food Stamp Program

Many people are complaining that the Food Stamp program is being cut back and hurting many people who need food. There are Americans who are hungry, and the majority are the innocent children. They are going hungry largely due to irresponsible parents. The Food Stamp program was established to help those who are truly needy. I would daresay the largest percentage of adults on Food Stamps also smoke tobacco and drink alcohol. Not all, but a large percentage. Why should taxpayers give adults $200.00 in monthly food stamps while they spend $250.00 on cigarretes and alcohol? If one has money to smoke and drink, then we should not be paying for their habits. The U.S. government could save millions of dollars in the food stamp program if they had people sign statements at the beginning that if they buy tobacco or alcohol products they forfeit their food stamps. Then if there is any evidence they did buy tobacco or alcohol they should be prosecuted for filing a fraudulent statement to obtain U.S. government services and their food stamps should stop.

This seems like an easy and practical solution, but of course common sense makes little or no difference to politicians. Dave Gaubatz

  1. I love to read Walter E. Williams work. He is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia. Mr. Williams wrote and excellent Forward to the “The Law” by Frederic Bastiat, it can be found online. http://www.fee.org/files/doclib/20121116_TheLaw.pdf
    This is a few quotes for some of his articles. “Here's my question: Were the nation's founders, and some of their successors, callous and indifferent to human tragedy? Or, were they stupid and couldn't find the passages in the Constitution that authorized spending "on the objects of benevolence"?
    Some people might say, "Aha! They forgot about the Constitution's general welfare clause!" Here's what James Madison said: "With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."
    Thomas Jefferson explained, "Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated."
    In 1828, South Carolina Sen. William Drayton said, "If Congress can determine what constitutes the general welfare and can appropriate money for its advancement, where is the limitation to carrying into execution whatever can be effected by money?"

ISIS in Fort Walton Beach Florida

Last weekend I was invited to Fort Walton Beach, Florida to give a presentation on Islamic terrorist events not only throughout the world, but also in the military community of Fort Walton. It has always been my policy that I will not say anything negative about anyone or any organization unless I have first hand evidence to support my claim. On 8 Jan 2016, I went to the Islamic Da'wah Center of Fort Walton Beach, 6 Hollywood Blvd SW, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548. Keep in mind the term Da'wah means to spread the ideology of Islam. In essence it is missionary work. My friends in Fort Walton and the surrounding area are surrounded by ISIS members/supporters who are living, working, and spreading the very same ideology as ISIS advocates in Syria and around the world.

ISIS would be proud of the Imam of the Fort Walton Beach mosque. Worshippers are provided numerous booklets, manuals, brochures, DVD's and 500 plus page books promoting an Islamic caliphate worldwide and und…

Liberals in America are the Enemies of America

Each and every day the conservative media outlines the number one threat to America, which they say is ISIS and Al Qaeda. Indeed they are our enemies, but the Islamic ideology itself is the root of the problem and must be addressed at some point if we want to secure our nation.

Our beautiful country has another enemy standing in open view across America. The liberal Democrats are just as much an enemy as ISIS. Liberals allow Islam to flourish. The vast majority of liberals hate America. Liberals support Islamic terrorist groups by their outright hatred of America and conservatives. These people will support CAIR and other Islamic groups before they will U.S. veterans who are outspoken about Islamic terrorists. It still amazes me that liberal homosexuals would support the Democratic party even though they align themselves with Islamic groups that adhere to Sharia law and the belief that homosexuals should be killed.

What can be done? Actually very little. Islamic groups such …

Muslim Terrorists Behead 4 Year Old Girl

There is nothing that Islamic terrorists do that surprises me. They burn people alive, they behead men and women, they rape children, they throw homosexuals off of buildings, they kill American military personnel, and today I read an article that they beheaded a 4 year old innocent child. Although the hate and violence conducted by Islamic terrorists in the name of Allah and Islam does not surprise me, the people who support the beheaders of 4 year old children often does surprise me. In America liberals from all walks of life support Islamic based terrorists each and every day. But now a few liberals who are homosexual are beginning to see that Islamic terrorists do not care about them.

People must begin to realize that Islam itself is the enemy and until this ideology can be branded as dangerous, the world will continue to suffer at the hands of the people who worship and praise Allah in mosques across the world. Of course there are some people who identify with Islam who do n…
