The chocolate ration is being increased to 25 grammes per week.

On that “Farm” bill

Let me get this straight.  It’s OK to increase subsidies to corporate farms (there are few small, struggling farmers that  get subsidies anymore), while at the same time eliminating food stamps.  One kind of assistance is OK, to corporations and wealthy individuals.  One kind of assistance is bad, to hungry, poor people.

If this is some sort of game, it’s a pretty sick one.  If it’s not a game, it’s clear the GOP members in the House of Representatives have no soul.  Either way, disgusting.

UPDATE: 7/16/13

Bob Schieffer: “You pass a farm bill in the House. It gives billions of dollars, much of it to large corporations that own farms. It’s almost like welfare for the wealthy. But you don’t include a dollar for hungry people for Food Stamps. What kind of a message is that you’re sending?”

Finally someone asking the proper question.
