Unbelievable and pathetic. And it sounds racist to me (chortle). Sounds like 'Julia' made it to roughly age 60 or so.

Why is this show 5 against 1? This shameless promotion of welfare has been going on a long time, way too long if you ask me. In California, they used to have these "Baby-Cal" commercials with Will Smith's wife. "Baby-Cal"- oh how cute. If people want/need the help, they should look in the phone book, apply in person or online, but it should NOT be advertised.
It's also possible that this is a sort of backdoor stimulus or promotion for the agriculture industry.

Totally messed up.

Congress just increased the Food Stamp budget from $78 Billion to $700 Billion. Currently 15% of our population to now budgeting for 120% of our population.
