You Can't Make This Stuff Up

"In a surprise ruling, a three judge panel of the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals issued a unanimous opinion supporting the right of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients to unionize in order to assure equitable access to benefits, along with an uninterrupted flow of payments should the federal government be forced to temporarily shut down due to congressional budget stalemates."

I don't often say this, but I am outraged. Do we live in a country where people who receive handouts are so brazen that they think they should get their "fair share" even when the government itself is shut down? And one of our so-called "courts" upheld this travesty? Go and read the rest of the article here and come back and tell me what YOU think.



  1. Btw, Copious Cookies to jw for the awesome link!

  2. Actually, everything should continue "as is" during a Gov't Shutdown. Except for the sudden Partying In The Streets. And the subsequent Baby Boom.

  3. We should agree to food-stampers forming a union, but only if the 9th Circus agrees to disband (and I'm not talking about disbanding like the Hell-Freezes-Over Eagles Disbanding, but like really disbanding, like the Beatles).

  4. You know, I thought briefly that this was serious, but then I saw the writer sort of plagiarized his last line from a line in a piece I wrote last October.
