    Did you know the government runs ads encouraging food stamps?

    I didn't know until my wife's grandmother told me she's been hearing them on the radio. Apperantly its not enough of our tax money going to the food stamps, but we also need more people dependant on them so we spend our money advertising it. And the Dems can't seem to come up with anything to cut. Hmmm.
