Eatin’ High off the Hog
”On Tuesday, FL Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her colleague VA Rep. Jim Moran openly whined about the impacts of spending cuts on their personal office budgets. Moran fretted that, with the looming sequester cuts, he may have to cut one staffer from his office. Wasserman Schultz upped his ante, however. She, almost literally, suggested that her staff were on the brink of starvation, due to the cuts.”Accordin’ to our Google search:
”The exact phrase "high off the hog" can be found in the San Francisco newspaper, Call Bulletin in May 1946. The sentence says, "I have to do my shopping in the black market because we can't eat as high off the hog as Roosevelt and Ickes and Joe Davis and all those millionaire friends of the common man."For the low information voters out there, those guys were all Democats! These days we have the food stamp credit card created by another set of Democats and paid for by—who else—“the common man.” New York has taken the next logical step.
”The Pet Food Stamps program, a registered NYS non-profit corporation, has been created to fill the void in the United States Food Stamp program which excludes the purchase of pet food and pet supplies.And they intend to expand into—you guessed it—Obamacare for pets.
With the continued growth of the Pet Food Stamps program, it is expected in the 4th quarter 2013 to expand into offering free or heavily discounted veterinary care for all qualified program beneficiaries as part of the Pet Food Stamps program.BUT—at least their funding is voluntary. So far. What no one has figured out, ‘cause they’re all probably low information Democat voters, ya’ can feed your pets using food stamps. Take a minute (or two or ten—it’s a long list) to read through the ingredients of organic dog food and you’ll see most of the ingredients are sold at any market. Dog (and fe-lyin’) food makers just put it all together for convenience. Even if ya’ aren’t as hard up as some, mixin’ in stuff like rice and green beans is a healthy way to go.
