And, FB, it is none of your business what religious beliefs GWB had or has or whatever his drink habits were or are and your unseemly comment about these have no place on Townhall. In fact, what are you doing making liberal comments on Townhall, which is a conservative column? If you want to hollar for the Democrats, go someplace else! Otherwise, keep shut about GWB.

Have you heard the rumor that the number of food stamp recipients has increased during President Obama’s term from 28.2 million to 46.6 million? Have you heard that in only three years, the annual cost of the program, which was already astronomical at $35 billion, has soared to $76 billion? It certainly has been the talk of the town (if not the campaign), but does anyone really know how we got to this state of affairs? That is what I set out to discover.

Even the most basic details about the program seem surreal. Why in the world is this...
