Yeah he was being sarcastic. However in my own attempt, lets get more people on food stamps asap. Every dollar of food stamps = $1.84 of economic activity! Food stamps will save the US. FACT!

There seems to be a lot of young and talented politics out there, Rubio and Warner are 2 that come to mind (even though Warner has kind of been around for a while, 10 years). Hopefully we get more of these guys in the coming years. Term limits would be a great way to facility this..
Marco Rubio will run for president in 2016 and unless Hillary Clinton runs, I think he'll win.

Yeah im excited for the day he runs. I almost want the republicans to loose this upcoming election so that he will be running in 2016 and not 2020. By that point he'll probably want out of politics or may turn into a typical politician. Time will tell.

Have you seen this video, I posted it a while back. Even my mom likes it and shes as liberal as it gets (she didnt say she liked it, but i could tell).

This one’s truly, uh ... rich: Billionaire Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes -- but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid what it’s already owed for years.

That’s right: As Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson notes, the company openly admits that it owes back taxes since as long ago as 2002.

“We anticipate that we will resolve all adjustments proposed by the US Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) for the 2002 through 2004 tax years ... within the next 12 months,” the firm’s annual report says.
It also cites outstanding tax issues for 2005 through 2009.

Re: US Credit Rating Downgraded To AA+

Apparently food stamps are making our women fat:

The Link Between Food Stamps and Obesity - Room for Debate - NYTimes.com

I knew you couldn’t buy alcohol and tobacco with wic but i had no idea you could use food stamps to buy soda, chips, oreos and all sorts of other crap.

My thoughts are if we give people free food that makes them fat then we should be obligated as a nation to give them free healthcare to treat their obesity. Honestly it would be completely irresponsible to do otherwise.

Haha I guess I should clarify. I'm not talking about doing away with all free healthcare and food assistance. What I was referring to was not allowing food stamp, or SNAP purchases to include crap food. What if you couldn't buy a bag of doritos and a 2 liter Mountain Dew with your food stamps, but you're more than welcome to buy a bag of nuts and an orange juice? I know it would be hard to regulate as far as which products are eligible for SNAP and which aren't, but it could have a positive ripple effect. I also do not think any fast food restaurants should accept SNAP for health reasons. I've been in the grocery store several times in recent memory where the person in front of me is paying with food stamps, and has a grocery cart full of total crap.

Diabetes and obesity are the biggest health issues facing Americans today. Certainly a good diet is the best way to combat this problem. Also, the less low-income obese people there are, the less of a strain on the nation's healthcare system to treat the health issues they will inevitably face.

You say it would be irresponsible to fund junk-food diets and not give out free health care when taxpayer funded eating binge causes health problems. I say don't fund junk-food diets in the first place.
