Pick any country in Africa where there is famine.
Can you find any to which the West hasn't sent massive food relief?
Why doesn't it get to the starving people?
Corruption of the powerful.
In this country we have no such layer of banditry but we do have recipients of social programs who divert money given them for food to other priorities.
You and other may consider this bashing the poor
but unlike you and them, I don't believe the poor to be noble and virtuous simply because of their economic status. Like any group of people they have segments that are virtuous and segments that are not.
None of you narrow-minded bleeding hearts can offer up even a shred of evidence that this nation's poor are all suffering from hunger (and not the BS "fear of hunger")
So why is this the case?
Because the virtuous poor, the majority, who receive public assistance spend it on the welfare of their families while the lowlifes don't.
So you expect me to believe there is something wrong with this nation because people who shouldn't have children won't feed them, no matter how much money the State provides them?
How about the all powerful State takes their kids from them? Are you OK with that?
