re: The Cory Booker SNAP Challenge


Wish I could remember the name of the guy that was in the news a few years ago for purposely starting from scratch to see if he could make it.

Got through with school then got rid of his cell phone, tv, etc. and started with less than $100. Found a job delivering furniture and lived frugally enough that within 6 months to a year he was able to afford a place to live and an old truck to get around in. All with *gasp!* not a dime of government assistance.

What's the objective:

1. Promote use of foodstamps for those that qualify
2. Advocate for additional funding as the amount given is not enough to sustain a healthy diet
3. Show how comfortable one can live on foodstamps and it will not motivate people to find employment at current levels. He will advocate cuts in funding or go strictly to a foodbank style approach; limiting choices to only sustain basic nutrients to live on.

Clearly 1 & 2, but I think we need to add:

#4 - Change the name of the program, as the first word of S.N.A.P is currently "Supplemental". The program was not initially designed to relieve humans of 100% of their responsibility to provide for themselves and their dependents. It was designed as a helping hand. As a boost.

This will not do in the modern, "progressive" view...

Wait, so these fools think supplemental means total?

There is no hope.
