The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service says the agency is investigating an effigy of President Barack Obama found hanging from a building in the hometown of former President Jimmy Carter.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that the large black doll was found Saturday morning along Main Street in the small town of Plains.

According to footage from WALB-TV, the doll was hanging by a noose in front of a red, white and blue sign that says “Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President.” A witness told the television station that the doll wore a sign with Obama’s name on it.

Donovan said the doll was removed Saturday. He declined further comment.

Sumter County Sheriff’s Department officials declined comment, referring all calls to the Secret Service.

Living on Food Stamps…….Socialism is bad?

For those people who are afraid of the socialism in the upcoming Healthcare Bill…check this out

….American, one the wealthiest countries in the year 2010 AD…..has a lot of people surviving by getting food stamps from government….this the second post I have done about people being hungry…..the social net for an increasing amount of Americans includes government assistance,  to live thru unemployment insurance and food stamps…in a lot of places it is governmenet assistance in finding a place with a roof over your head with the Section 8 Rent assistance Program….

Stop bitching about Socialism in Healthcare people….Socialism is supporting an increasing number of Americans everyday…..and it’s cold out there tonight…….

Here’s the numbers and facts……

The New York Times said the data from those states, which account for about 60 percent of the national caseload, suggests there are six million people in households with no income, including 1.2 million children.

“The numbers have nearly tripled in Nevada over the past two years, doubled in Florida and New York, and grown nearly 90 percent in Minnesota and Utah. In Wayne County, Mich., which includes Detroit, one of every 25 residents reports an income of only food stamps,” according to the report.

Some point to these findings as evidence that the safety net is torn because of the lack of cash support. James Weill, president of the Food Research and Action Center, a Washington advocacy group, told the Times, “The food-stamp program is being asked to do too much…People need income support.”
