As it is usually the case, the truth is hidden from the people.
We have been made to believe by our politicians that the poor is breaking this nation’s economy with their dependence on food stamps. That the poor is greedy and take from all of us our money, that this costly welfare program needs to go.
Well, it just so happens that food stamps are here to stay because JP Morgan NEEDS YOU TO CONTINUE RECEIVING FOOD STAMPS. This is one of those instances that serve as EVIDENCE that THE WEALTHY NEEDS THE POOR, they DON’T WANT TO ERADICATE POVERTY.
It just so happens that the HIGH COST of the food stamps program (SNAP is the new name, as in ‘you will snap when you read this article’) comes from paying JP and other vultures for MANAGING the distribution of the stamps at the tune of almost a billion dollars in profits. That’s DOLLARS, REAL money, not stamps money with which you can’t buy toilet paper. JP can wipe ‘his’ derriere with real money that comes from food stamps funds. You, well, wait for that Charmin sale.
So don’t be ungrateful to JP. Food stamps are here to stay as long as JP can make billions in REAL money.
That’s why JP Morgan celebrates its own version of the poem in the Statute of Liberty:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
Tempest-tossed to me – so that i can keep them poor and take their bread from their mouth in the name of Corporate Freedom to feed our insatiable greed.
