…and it’s a losing strategy.
Simply put, our government is opting to pay farmers not to grow food and insure not yet planted crops while simultaneously electing to cut programs that feed people who are going hungry today, will be hungry tomorrow and chronically famished when the new crops are sown.
The utter dysfunction and unimaginable inhumanity of our socio-political and economic system is profoundly and perfectly demonstrated by this bill. Ours is not a government put in place for the good of its citizens. It is apparently there to cater to the interest of those who already have power and are not in need and not to those who are in desperate need of the most basic thing, their basic human rights.
