When I read the GOTP attacks on food stamps I will now think also of those who cheered at the idea of someone 30 years old dying for lack of health care coverage at the September 12, 2011 GOTP primary debate or being executed in Texas.
Even candidates like Paul and Perry were booed when they showed any signs of compassion and humanity for other human beings.
The audience were well coiffed and obviously not composed of disadvantaged Americans .... for them this was just a political variation of dancing with the stars. A night out and a chance to boo and become celebrities. Will they now brag to friends about being there? Rush Limbaugh would and may have already applauded them on his hate filled radio show.
Is that what our nation is becoming .... more and more like the teapublicans in the audience? More and more like the GOTP candidates?
I hope not.
Getting back to food stamps.
Food and water are the last thing any human beings on this planet should be deprived of ...... and I can't imagine what those who want to cut food stamp programs are thinking.
They frankly deserve to be locked in a cell and left to starve to death. That is how I feel about anyone who opposes food stamps. They deserve to die of starvation.
This planet is hungry ... even while the plutocrats drink expensive champagne and snack on caviar.
Meanwhile poor and rich alike are getting fatter and fatter in America. Once the land of the free and now the land of the free fats for want of the need to lose weight. Most gain due to the cost of healthy foods ... and others out of opulence and self indulgence.
Many in of those well off say they have earned their fatness ..... but I say that the vast majority haven't. Many who are fortunate do voluntarily help others less fortunate ... but too many others seek to acquire even more power and wealth.
Those with surplus ... have just that .... surplus. No where more than in industrialized nations like the UK France and America where the wealth gap is the greatest .... aside from the third world nations we prosper from where the monies we give the leaders never reaches the people.
Meanwhile humanity is running a deficit.
Food stamps can be spun off in many political directions ... but it's not complicated. There's plenty of food on the planet once you take profit out of the equation.
Everyone on the planet should be given a food stamp debit card ... and allocated a fair amount to insure they can feed their families and them selves.
I say put all Americans on food stamps and on a diet as well.
Send the fat offshore to impoverished nations where it can be put to good use!
