Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The biggest hate blog site on the web isn't operated by some shadowy hate group, its run by Fox News, and its called Fox Nation. Today Fox Nation has a thread titled Obama Secretary of Agriculture: Food Stamps Are Economic Stimulus

Obama Secretary of Agriculture: Food Stamps Are Economic Stimulus

If there are more people on food stamps, it's because it was made easier to get on them!  Some stimulus--stimulating people not to work!

"It's the most direct stimulus you can get in the economy during these tough times."  How about the stimulus of a boot in the a-- of the typical fat a-- pile on food stamps?  Nothing like a good strong stimulus to get people back to work!

Feed a stray dog once and he will be at your doorstep forever. This guy doesn't have a clue. He is just saying what he is told to say from the annoited one. Just like unemployment checks create jobs. I would like a clear example of both analogies. Did I miss something? 47 million plus record breaking people on food stamps, and unemployment at above 9% for two years. Where's your correlation with that  a hole.

Let's see...for every dollar in food stamps given to a parasite...one dollar had to be stollen from a working tax payer.

Doesn't sound like an economic stimulus to me...though it will end the same as the stimulus...a failure.

These buffoons can't do anything right.

Liberals are abject morons.

What are we suppose to do...... pay for every loser who doesn't want to get a job?

Cause that's what we've been doin' for the last 60 years...... exponentially.  You want more of somethin'.......subsidize it!  You want less of it, tax it!!

The 'obesity epidemic' has coincided with explosive growth in food stamps, not surprisingly.

Hey..Hey...Hey...I do believe this brain-washed 'o-bum-o convert" has been in the sun tooooooo long. Giving away food stamps...encouraging folk not to work...and this O-BUN-O philosophy is supposed tol help the economy. He is either smoking "some of that funny looking weed" or has spent too much time, in Air Force One...at extremely, high altitude. Have you noticed...a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g  o-bum-o touches has a tendency to s-m-e-l-l..!

The comments in response to this thread illuminate the Republican rank and file's contemptuous attitude toward the poor at a time when the country is still reeling from the disastrous consequences of George W. Bush's slavishly pro corporate economic and regulatory policies.

They love to look down on the poor and unemployed as "losers", "parasites" and "fat a-- piles" perhaps because they think that they are too good to ever lose their job or their home and end up in a similarly needy situation.

UPDATE: New comments continue to be added, so here are some more gems of conservative wisdom at Fox Nation.

When the same folks, regardless of color, keep standing there with their hand out without making an effort to take care of themselves just why are we supposed to continue feeling sorry for them and supporting them? Noone takes care of me, except me...so if it's good enough for me, it's good enough for you too!  Even worse...they teach their children that they couldn't afford to have in the first place to do the same thing.  When will it end?

and the ignorance and stupidity never ceases..

When I
was growing up, we needed food stamps every once and a while, but we never
wanted it, nor liked it, nor were proud of it..  as it was a sign to everyone, that we were not doing very well..  so why should everyone bemade to feel like it is something to be proud of, like they do with welfare.
It was being self-reliant, self-sufficient, and economically prosperous at work and home, that we wanted to be,
and feel good about, as successful Americans..

 these liberals are destroying the very social fabric of American Society, and are trying to make the American people believe that is is the new normal.. the Obama Liberal govt. unemployment and food stamp welfare society.

They can
take their liberal socialist-marxist policies and propaganda, and their unemployment food stamp welfare, and stick em where the sun don't shine..

Stimulus= Take money from those who work for it and give it to those who do not work. This is the new definition under Obama and the Dems.
