Why is the OP, who professes to be poor and disabled difficult so understand and so sarcastic and snarky about what for some people is a very real problem? I don't believe for a minute you have ever experience hunger. You are being so trollish and manipulative in this thread that I'm surprised you get away with it.

Tell me what you really think about hunger in the USA.

What if anything should be done about it? There's food stamps but many people still go hungry and if I recall correctly food stamps allocates about three dollars or four dollars a day maximum. Tell me how many weeks you can eat on that small amount without blowing it one day and buy something "expensive"...something that might cost six dollars for an entire meal! Then you are sunk for the rest of the month.

Tell me what you really think.

I cant buy a farm if I move from my townhouse. My townhouse is rented. I only pay $700/month. Do you know any farm with a 3 bedroom house on it that I can rent for that price? Help me! I am landicapped.

I see someone is trying to stand under my bridge, while demanding tribute for safe passage??? (:


I think the total opposite

I think companies should be allowed to put whatever they want in food...

There is a huge pollution problem which would be fixed over night if there were no standards or FEDERAL definitions.

Just imagine

MEAT JERKY - (who gives a #@$@ what is in there, it tastes fly!)
BOOM get rid of Dead Animal Pickup right there!

Save the land fills and eliminate some money from the bureaucracy of budgets around the nation.

If people call to complain, just make a robo phone line that keeps disconnecting them,
they will give up right?

MILCK - IF its white and creamy put it in a bottle and create jobs!
If someone might get sick call a phone line like the one above.

Heck all these companies
can pay another company to suppress all the contact information to said companies.
No contacty, no servy...

I say let other companies put contractual clauses into their contracts that they can sell to other companies.

I.E You get Water from a company, but stipulate that the water customer needs to
buy three AT&T phones in the next ten years or they go to jail, which the jailers pay AT&T for the new business for those that default. IMAGINE THE BUSINESS

I mean hell, YOU signed the contract, the government needs to stay out of it.

Every hand shakes every other hand if you are a hard worker and own a business.

If not this might motivate people to not be so lazy!

I would like to put it out there and say that I wouldnt mind paying a little bit more in taxes if it went to feeding everyone in America. There shouldnt be people who are starving anywhere, especially here.

I am not disabled. I am landicaped. Meaning I suffer from a life condition where I do not own enough land to raise my own healthy food. Therefore I think the government owes me food, because how can I get my right to health if I can't afford good food? It is purely logical that if I have a right to health and I need good food to be healthy that I therefore must have a right to good food provided at government expense if I cannnot afford it.

As far as my thoughts of food in this country I was thinking that I spend a lot of money on food and its not even good food. If I can get rich people to pay higher taxes so I can get free food then I could use my food budget to buy a nice car. I mean for what I pay to feed my family I could be driving a Beemer and even have some credit left over to put some spinners on it.

Me buying a nice car has to be good for the economy. Just think, not just me, but millions of people no longer having to spend money on food. I mean there is just now doubt that is going to stimulate the economy and make people healthier. I mean I would just be healthier by not having to worry if I am going to have enough food to keep everybody fed. McDonalds chicken nuggets are like $3 for 6 and my kinds love them. Sometimes I have to tell them no and they get mad at me. Do you know how that feels?

If you can only insinuate and not offer anything productive here what exactly is it that you are looking for or advocating? Politically, I mean? If you can only fabricate a life in theoretical terms that are difficult to believe and your terms are slippery...then I say you are inept if not trollish. See, I doubt your sincerity.

To the point - what do you offer politically?

I am advocating taxing other people more so that the goverment can provide me with good healthy food, so me and my family can be fully empowered to achieve our right of good health.

I am tired of cutting coupons, buying generic food, shopping at multiple stores for the best price. That is too much work. I think the government should give me a hand up and just deliver the healthiest food and diretions to prepare it and if it isnt asking too much maybe a dietitian to help out.

Does that give you an answer.

This is just silliness.

Making up of non existent play on word to advocate just whatever the hell you are jabbering about.

the world owes you NOTHING. in order for it to owe you something then you have to have given in the first place. Just what have your given to the world for it to give you free food.

Hmmmm lets see the world DOES offer free food. it is just that you have not invested enough time effort or skillbase to be able to exploit it. You just sit back and decide that paying paper for hard reared food is sufficient.

I fully advocate that you leave you townhouse, and spend that $700 a month on a Kibbutz, or commune, self subsistence community. to see just what it is like to sustain your well fed derriere!

maybe then you can appreciate the true value of what you demand for the total price of sweet fanny adams!

In short, stop whinging and take some personal responsibility for YOUR life!

As a final note let me just add this. Law of the jungle, the elite historically ate the best, because they were the best hunters, the strongest. The same exists today only now it is a out money. You just wnat to eat for free, and that my friend is against nature. in any other species with an attitude like that, you would be a feast for a stronger predator.

Well that is just offensive. How can you attack the landicapped like that and still feel good for yourself. You probably have a large farm full of a cow, a pig, and two veggies. Here I am stuck going to the grocery store week after week paying my money to the fat cat grocers.

I am with you. I feel I am handicapped also. I do not have a mansion. I mean really to stay healthy you need three things, good food, good water and good shelter.

I think we should tax everyone at a high enough rate so that everyone gets to live in a 10,000 sq ft home at the minimum. One cannot be healthy without shelter.

I think the going rate right now for both starvation/malnutrition/shelterlessness death toll is about 300,000 per year. I think you are onto something here.

Let us go all the way, I want Al Gore's house, that house would be good shelter. That could be his tax.

I like the cut of your jib. That is dead on. They should drag Al Gore's fat stupid carbon producing ass out of his house and give it to the people. I'll take Michael Moore's. Maybe they can just cut that butter hog up and let us have him for dinner. I bet he tastes like veal, because he has never exercised a day in his life.

I think you have brought up a good point that housing should be a right too. Once again purely logical. You cannot be heathy without proper shelter. I encourage you to create a thread about this as the world need to be enlightened to this truth.

Well it just isn't working because we don't have enough. It is kind of like when you are drinking beer. If you just drink a few you just feel like you are tired and going to puke. However, if you drink 15 you feel 8 foot tall and bullet proof.

I am sure once we get our food and mcmansions from the government you will feel a lot better about it.

Here you go: memphis.craigslist.org...

That is just an example of what you can do in a 3 minute search on the internet.

I like it!!! star for you. But no I live in an average city house in Mexico, (I am not Mexican, or American) with no land, but at least when TSHTF I know that I have gathered sufficient knowledge to be able to hunt, farm and defend. how succesful that will be who knows, but I have enough confidence to give it my best shot. Most people would panic the moment the Wallmart closed its doors!

For now I just live within the structure of society, earning my way. and being thankful for the food I can provide to my family. knowing fully what it takes to be able to put it there in the first place.

Now that is a great position to be in. Able to provide for your and protect your family and to be confident in your ability to do so. I would hunt my own food down here, but you have to jump through 50 hoops just to kill your own dinner in this country. That is why being landicapped in America is such a nightmare.

I think if they are not going to provide our food for us then they should either give us a piece of land or pass some kind of landicapped rights bills that give us the right to hunt and plant wherever we need to.

I see it as working kind of like the handicabable laws they passed in the 90's, where they made public places create accessible facilities at any cost. They could make farms create landicapable places where we could hunt and fish just like those with their own land.

To quote the band "James"

"if I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor"

After seeing places like El Salvador, Jamaica, Bogota. I can only wonder at just how weak, idle and self fulfilling we in the developed world have become.
