I was strolling around the waterfront fish market in DC on Saturday, admiring the whole octopi, the squid, lobsters, jumbo crab legs and Maryland blue crabs for sale.

...But this is all good news, according to this administration. Remember, food stamps stimulate the economy!
Say, did someone mention another Obama record?
...according to the latest update from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), some 423,000 Americans found their way to minimum way subsistence, courtesy of Food Stamp handouts from Uncle Sam. Since the start of the Second Great Depression, food stamp participation has increased by 18.7 million, and is now at an all time higher 46.3 million.

Not to worry, folks.
At least the USDA has an excellent handle on how food stamps are being used.
Sorry. I couldn't restrain my chortle.
