Allowance Day in the USA

Each month food stamps, re-named the “Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program”, are distributed to citizens of the U.S.A. who “need” them.

“Allowance Day” as I like to refer to it, is actually “Allowance Days” as the largesse of hard working Americans is distributed during the first half of each month among the following dates: 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, and 15th.

People in need (a record percentage of Americans these days) can then use them to buy healthy, nutritious, wholesome snacks and foods which will help them and their children achieve more and get them off food stamps SNAP.  For example, with SNAP benefits, you can buy:

  • Sodas
  • Ice cream
  • Candy
  • Snack cakes
  • Bakery items
  • Wedding cakes
  • Expensive meat & seafood (t-bones, rib-eyes, shrimp, lobster)
  • Sugar laden cereal
  • Toaster pastries
  • Many other nutritionally devoid foods
Perhaps even more disturbing than what they can buy, is what they’ve given away: their freedom.  By being beholden to the government for the very basic necessities of life, they subject themselves to the whims and wishes of government.  I believe that most people currently on SNAP would do whatever government tells them to do in order to keep their SNAP benefits.  It is their allowance from the government – and it controls them.
