Not very much posting going on so I guess it's vacation time. Found this interesting article on SNAP.

Many people face difficult choices and sometimes those choices go against their ingrained beliefs or their perception of themselves. Not everyone on food stamps is a malingerer and not everyone buys steak for their dog.

ISIS as Capitalists?
March 05, 2015
