AMERICA AND HER CITIZENS ONCE MARVELED AND BOASTED OF BEING SEEMINGLY GREATEST,THE RICHEST,AND MOST POWERFUL NATION ON EARTH.WEALTH WAS NO OBJECT.SHE STOOD ATOP OF THE NATIONS .
SHE WAS THE LARGEST PRODUCER OF FOOD.SHE WAS THE HOME ON TOP KNOTCH INVENTIONS.SHE WAS THE #1 EXPORTER AND INDUSTRIAL MACHINE.ALL THIS CAUSED ARROGANCE WHICH HELP LEAD HER TO HER DATE WITH DOOM.
SHE NO LONGER IS AN EXPORTER OF ANYTHING BUT DOLLARS(WHICH NO NATION EVEN WANTS ANYMORE).SHE NO LONGER IS A NET EXPORTER OF FOOD..AS A MATTER OF FACT SHE IMPORTS MOST OF HER NEEDS(THE VERY THING SHE ONCE PRODUCED).
LOOK AT HER INDUSTRIAL SECTOR TODAY,PLANTS CLOSING EVERYWHERE.FARMERS GOING BELLY-UP.SHE ONCE WAS THE WORLD’S CREDITOR NOW SHE IS THE LARGEST DEBTOR NATION(WITH UNSUSTAINABLE BORROWING) THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN,SEEN,OR HEARD.

United States –
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – For the first time, more than 34 million Americans received food stamps, which help poor people buy groceries, government figures said on Thursday, a sign of the longest and one of the deepest recessions since the Great Depression
Enrollment surged by 2 percent to reach a record 34.4 million people, or one in nine Americans, in May, the latest month for which figures are available.
It was the sixth month in a row that enrollment set a record. Every state recorded a gain in participation from April. Florida had the largest increase at 4.2 percent.
Food stamp enrollment is highest during times of economic stress. The U.S. unemployment rate of 9.5 percent is the highest in 26 years.
Average benefit was $133.65 in May per person. The economic stimulus package enacted earlier this year included a temporary increase in food stamp benefits of $80 a month for a family of four.
