    Re: Report: Nearly a quarter of all Americans struggle to afford food

    Can we take bets on how many of these people "struggling" to afford food own a smart phone?

    Report: Nearly a quarter of all Americans struggle to afford food - Salon.com

    Looks like many of our citizens are struggling to get one of the basic needs in this world; food. One of the richest countries in the world, no wait THE richest country in the world, and nearly 25% of our citizens are struggling to get food. [/INDENT]
    Wait a minute, wasn't Obama supposed to put everybody back to work, or is he keeping unemployment high on purpose to enact yet another entitlement freebie program. We all know under Obama he has increased the role of citizens on food stamps to the highest level in US history. Maybe the problem is these people are not getting enough food stamps. By giving them a double amount of food stamps should take care of the problem. Kids these days don't eat at home anymore they are fed all their meals for the day at school paid by the tax payer.

    Doesn't matter, if you had a calorie deficiency (can't access food) it doesn't matter if you ate only bacon and cheese, you still wouldn't be obese. Obesity is caused by overeating.

    Re: Report: Nearly a quarter of all Americans struggle to afford food

    I'd be willing to bet that three-fourths of those 25% are not REALLY struggling to put food on the table.

    They said "HAVE HAD difficulty putting food on the table"... not "are constantly having trouble".


    In many cases it will be due to money mismanagement, spending too much on other things. In other cases I'm sure it is an exaggeration... as in, "we were short of cash one week due to vehicle repairs and couldn't buy our usual expensive meal choices".

    Or blew it on crack and beer.

    I doubt even 10% are REALLY having trouble paying the necessities and buying groceries.

    Wonder how many of that quarter have cell phones with data plans, internet, video games, smoke, drink alcohol, and/or do illegal drugs.

    For that matter...as we have seen in California, more than a few of them spend the food money given to them by the state in strip clubs (and from the comments on this site, more than a few people support their right to do so).

    As cheap as they are now...

    Cell phones are a utility. Should we take bets on how many of them have electricity? How about indoor plumbing? Or access to refrigeration?

    What I see is a complete failure of the welfare programs as they exist now. People don't need cash, they need food and a place to live.

    If that many people are hungry in this country, why do we have to import illegal aliens to harvest the crops? How is it that there are jobs that Americans won't do?
