Trump Announces Plan To Replace Food Stamps With New Low-Income Foraging Program


WASHINGTON—Championing the decision as a way to cut costs and still meet federally mandated nutrition requirements, President Trump announced a plan Tuesday to replace food stamps with a new low-income foraging program. “We have developed a new foraging-based plan that provides qualifying Americans with a small, reusable bag they can fill with whatever they are able to scavenge from alleys, empty lots, or nearby wooded areas,” said Trump, explaining that underprivileged participants in the program would search for food scraps anywhere they can find them, including the dumpsters behind restaurants. “We will also be providing these low-income Americans with charts that explain which rotting foods are still safe to eat, which seeds and berries can be consumed without getting sick, and how to spot insects that are high in protein. Many disadvantaged citizens don’t have access to healthy meals at home, but this program will teach them the self-reliance they need to ensure their basic requirements for sustenance continue to be met.” Trump also proposed a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in which Americans would receive a weekly meal service kit containing pictures of food.

2. In 2016 The Onion stopped publishing outrageous satire and went to an all-factual format.

Nobody noticed.

3. Always

more than a kernel of Truth in good satire.

At any rate, I hope no Republicans see this. It might give them ideas.

13. Reminds me of the old Monkees comic book.

They always played like they were starving musicians and one time Peter was searching for pictures of food in a magazine and eating the pictures.

They had some great writers, I believe Carole King wrote "Pleasant Valley Sunday".

14. Next up

the Trump Student LOan DEbt Relief Program. (SLODERP)

Students can agree to work for free for a length of time in order to pay down their student loans. Of course, rent, food, and clothing provided by the employer gets added onto the debt, so this means it will take about 10 years to pay off public college loans and 20-30 years for a private college loan.
