A new time-lapse video illustrates the depressing rise of food stamp usage throughout the U.S.

The video’s creator, Zero Hedge’s John Lohman, points to the alarming levels — food stamps now feed a record 43 million — and warns that the program is the only thing keeping Americans from going “postal.” Sinatra’s upbeat tune “I’ve Got The World By A String” serves as an especially disturbing soundtrack.

According to a recent <em>Wall Street Journal report, food stamp usage has increased almost 60 percent since 2007.
