Georgia Drops Thousands from Food Stamps

The State of Georgia may have found a way to slow down or perhaps even reverse its demographic crisis.

MyAJC reports:

Thousands of Georgians have lost their food stamps after the state gave them an ultimatum: Get a job or lose your benefits.

…Georgia has been rolling out work requirements for food stamp recipients for over a year. The latest round affected some 12,000 people in 21 counties, several in metro Atlanta, who are considered able-bodied without children.

When the April 1 deadline came around for them to find work, more than half — 7,251 — were dropped from the program, according to state figures released this week. Essentially, the number of recipients spiraled down from 11,779 to 4,528, or a drop of 62 percent.

…State officials say they plan to expand the work requirements to all 159 counties by 2019, with another 60 coming on board next year.

…Food stamps come from federal dollars, but the program here is managed by DFCS. Some 1.6 million Georgians receive food stamps.

The number of food stamp recipients deemed able-bodied and without children in Georgia has dropped from 111,000 to 89,500 in a year’s time. That is an uncommon reduction of 21,500 people or 19 percent. Officials say they have no firm reason for the sharp decrease, though they suspect a statewide review of this population may have played a role.

The state began implementing the work requirements in 2016 with Cobb, Gwinnett and Hall counties. The state gave recipients there three months to find a job or training program or lose their benefits. A year later, the number of able-bodied, childless adults in those counties diminished 75 percent from 6,102 to 1,490, according to DFCS figures. The state selects counties with relatively low unemployment rates for the work requirements.

Let’s take a look at the demographics in counties in question. Cobb County was roughly 50% White (and 12% Latino) in 2010. Gwinnett County was perhaps 50% White (25% Black and 20% Latino) in 2010. And Hall County was around 48% White (7% Black and 26% Latino) in 2010. This assumes that most or all of the “Latino” population is actually Mestizo or Indio and not Spanish. Remember, Mexico does not send its best. Thus far Georgia seems to have targeted counties with high Mexican migrant populations, which is positive. It will be interesting how things proceed once it gets around to cutting off food stamps in mostly-Black counties. And it will also be interesting to see if this measure by the GOP-controlled State Government improves the over-all demographic trend in the Peach State.

  1. “He who will not work, shall not eat.”

    2000-year old advice from an Apostle of God- St. Paul
    ‘Bout time we began to listen to our Elders…..

  2. Way I see it an even bigger problem is “able-bodied WITH children” these bimbos breeding all this useless biomass with IQ80 that have no hope in a technological society. How do you shut off the spigot to this giant tapeworm leaching the vigor out of society? Even amongst whites the rise of “The Bastard Non-Family” is going to make the vast majority of “citizens” of this land little more than lower class louts that must be kept at a distance from the children of the remnants of the stable married middle class to keep from corrupting them too. Won’t be much left to carry on science and engineering great things.

  3. Buts what about de po chillen? Deys hongry! We needs mo munny fo dem programs, muthafukka!

    Hmmm, perhaps demanding that some additional CSA monuments get pulled down will help?

  4. Allow me to be the devil’s advocate here. It is one thing to tell a man to get a job. It is quite another when the system in power has outsourced all the jobs to third world nations. What happens when all the menial labor jobs are automated? Perhaps welfare is in reality a social net to buy off opposition and keep the unemployed from rioting in the streets and assuming revolutionary proportions. Most of these people are unemployed and unemployable have no work skills and certainly no work ethic.

  5. Good points ethnostatist. Then why isn’t whatever passes for Negro leadership up in arms about 3rd world immigration?

  6. Because the coloreds are more intefested in “sticking it to the Man” than getting a job.

  7. Factor in consumer economy index for decades made it profitable for wall street, taxpayer subsiding welfare programs. Inflation sky rocking.

  8. @Ethnostatist…

    You made a good point. May small Southern towns have been decimated by Yankee Empire trade policies and there simply are no jobs, and there ain’t been no jobs for as much as 20 or 30 years.

  9. If it bring on genocidal levels of violence. Let’s get on with it.

    You remove a monument you don’t eat.

  10. More of the same- there is great animosity between Negroes and Mexicans more so than between whites and blacks.

    My own opinion is far too many whites are dancing in the shadow of Vesuvius oblivious to its distant rumbles. Cold, hard, reality is about to impact them and not in a good way either. Regardless of what happens with Trump they have let the white Jihn out of the bottle and I do not think they will be able to get him back in.

  11. They’ve sent out the town crier to tell all the sheboons – get procreating or find a job! And more black babies will now be coming…

    What most people fail to see is that the welfare system was created to make people dependent, provide an excuse for imports, and implode the system that much faster. I am talking about the controllers and not the whores who peddled it to their constituencies. Everything they do is to destroy. They just giftwrap it with fuzzy lies of fake benevolence. We think in years, they think in decades….. or longer. They are very patient people but they are not benevolent.

  13. 1980s Yuppies generation could afford children reduced their reproduction , those who could not afford children began reproducing like rabbits. System law had made it profitable for the unemployed to reproduce with welfare incomes.

  14. “What happens when all the menial labor jobs are automated?” – The same thing that is largely happening now with large numbers of foreigners being brought in to do these jobs, and the remainder of said jobs being shipped overseas. It sucks but hopefully people understand that they have to put America first or else they get nothing.
