Didn't believe or know a thing about the North American Alliance, did you?
Well here it comes - right between your eyes, and it's going to affect food prices, your tax money, your attitude toward altruism, it'll make us racist...all those wonderful things and more and who do you thank for this?
The Fraud In The White House and his henchmen, the entire Congress!
Maybe we'd better re-read Dickens....
"It was the best of times; it was the worst of times..."
The King of Amerika rules by edict (executive order), and the Queen eats whatever she wants and gives you grass to feed your children. Except that there will be food shortages because of the drought, and higher prices, but that's ok, because as long as the Mexican nationals here get more food stamps bought by your sweat and blood, everything's fine in Obamaland.
WHAT'S NEXT? A DRONE TRAGEDY?

Here are a couple of thoughts on this subject from a friend on the east coast.
The U.S. is ramping up its promotional efforts to sign up illegal aliens for the food stamp program. Thy call it "outreach."
I think we can now see why the cost of the food stamp program has more than doubled during Obama's presidency. This has resulted in a large increase in remittances to Mexico (when Mexicans here send money to their relatives back home) because since they are now being fed by the 1/2 of American workers who pay income taxes, and can afford more to send home - since they don't have to feed themselves any more........
But you do.....
The real purpose of this program, IMHO, is to encourage more illegals to sign up to register and vote....for Obama, of course.
The Mexican government has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.
USDA has an agreement with Mexico to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.
“USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexicans living in the United States about available nutrition assistance,” the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their “Reaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistance” web page. “Mexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.”
The partnership — which was signed by former USDA Secretary Ann M. Veneman and Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Ernesto Derbez Bautista in 2004 — sees to it that the Mexican Embassy and Mexican consulates in America provide USDA nutrition assistance program information to Mexicans living in the U.S, including Mexican nationals working in America and migrant communities in America. The information is specifically focused on eligibility criteria and access.
The goal, for USDA, is to get rid of what they see as enrollment obstacles and increase access among potentially eligible populations by working with arms of the Mexican government in America.
Some of the materials the USDA encourages the Mexican government to use to educate and promote the benefit programs are available free online for order and download. A partial list of materials include English and Spanish brochures titled “Five Easy Steps To Snap Benefits,” “How To Get Food Help — A Consumer’s Guide to FNCS Programs,” “Ending Hunger Improving Nutrition Combating Obesity,” and posters with slogans like “Food Stamps Make America Stronger.”
“The partnership with the Mexican embassy was established in 2004,” a USDA spokesman wrote The Daily Caller in an email. “USDA does not perform outreach to immigrants that are undocumented, and therefore not eligible for SNAP.” (RELATED: USDA buckles, removes Spanish food stamp soap operas from website)
Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, who has been pushing for reform of SNAP, sent a letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack on Wednesday demanding more answers and documents pertaining to the partnership.
The agency has yet to supply documents and information requested by Sessions’ Senate Budget Committee staff, including the Memorandums of Understanding between USDA and the Mexican government regarding the food assistance partnership.
In an interview with TheDC, Sessions explained that the little-known partnership raises questions not just about where tax money is going, but about America’s immigration policy.
“It’s a very disturbing policy, gone on for some years, and it raises very serious questions about American immigration policy as well as fiscal policy,” Session said. “Let’s get back to the fundamentals. What happened with the ‘96 welfare reform was to say that if want to you come to America you come legally, you assert you’re not coming for welfare benefits but you’re coming to work or otherwise be independent. There is no logic behind an immigration policy that would encourage immigrants who can’t successfully operate within this society.”
