Now, with VIDEO!!
I keep hearing them: the plaintive bleats of the left about how one in six Americans struggle with Hunger. Radio ads are regularly played that trumpet this dreadful statistic. One person in six is going hungry.
Prove it. Shoot, I maintain that all Americans have a problem with hunger, several times a day. Six Americans out of six. That is not an epidemic, because meal-time solves the problem.
"That was unfeeling and hurtful."
No. I just want to establish that there are ways and times to ask questions to derive the answer you require.
I do not deny that some have poverty issues, but if the number of 16+% seems astonishingly high. I mean, if 44 million people are on food stamps, that would indicate one remedy for the situation, and that a big bunch of people have sussed it out.
I do NOT believe the 1 in 6 number.
Of course, I have good reason to suspect skullduggery. Check out the anti-obesity fitness ads the US Givement is playing. Momma sends Daughter up and down stairs to look for Mom's purse...which Mom knows is in none of those places. She lies to her daughter to get her to scramble up and down the stairs and burn off some of those Skittles and Big Macs, but it's OK, because it's for the girl's own good.
Enjoy that nursing home, Mom!
The current administration thinks so little of truth, and the PEE-pul, that they encourage lying to your kids. For a Good Cause.
In other news, not raising the Debt Ceiling will automatically cause the US to default.
