Default Re: Eating on $4 a day

Why are people talking about how they can totally do it like its not an issue. Of course you CAN do it, but in America you shouldn't have to, not on a regular basis anyway. This is a country of great excess; people have two cars, vacation houses and CEOs get million dollar bonuses when they LOSE jobs, yet we're wondering why so many are doing a bad job at eating off of four dollars a day.

We like to spew bs about the US being better than other countries, yet expect our citizens to believe it while living at the same standards as the poor in some of the poorer countries.

What i'd like to see are statistics on how many food stamp recipients are taking care of children or live in a home where they have to feed more than just themselves.
