Neither Congress nor the media seem interested in openly discussing the level of hunger in the United States today.

AGENDA 21 is the commandment that is dictated by the NWO and our Congress has nothing to say about it because they are automatically OVER-RULED!

Grow your own food even if it is in a window box......PERIOD. OR TRADE FOR FOOD....save your money to buy existence beyond the Agenda 21 timetable.

Actually, this article is about the harsh austerity cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, more commonly known as Food Stamps, and the complete lack of discussion as to just how many children and families go hungry every day and night in the US as well as how the gutting of this vital program will impact those numbers and worsen the crisis. Commentators are recommended to go read the article and then make a comment pertinent to said article.

But thank you for hijacking this thread for your AGENDA.

The Heartless Ones have no shame. Deny food to the children and Elders, cut back programs for the disabled, take away benefits to the Veterans, it is a laundry list to add to the Wall of Shame.

The pull yourself up by the boot straps is assuming you might have boots to begin with. The take personal responsibility is laid at the feet of those in society who had to say in how things go, the children. Rob them of their nutrition and we rob this Country of any future.

Yet the Greedy Heartless Ones who have had much to do with robbing this society never seem to have to take personal responsibility. Too rich to jail, fail, or nail. Yeah I get it.

typo above: is laid at the feet of those in society that had "no" say, not to say.

Meanwhile, the Trans-Pacific Partnership threatens to expand the powers of the World Trade Organization, usurp the food sovereignty of all nations, and assault food security. Those who control the food control the people. This toxic trade agreement will cement corporate power above and beyond the laws of any nation. Starving times are ahead.

my understanding is that things are already dire for a lot of people and a lot of people don't get a lot to eat. And what they do, I see a lot of complaints that there's little fruits and vegetables available close to people's houses and at affordable prices. I don't know if I should be skeptical about that last bit or not, but I have seen hard figures about income rates so it doesn't take a genius to work out food is a luxury item at times rather than an essential
