This is nothing but a front for something insidious. They rail at us for being too fat then they castigate us for widespread hunger. Which is it? Why, it’s manipulation boys and girls. “Look over here at this shiny object!”. “No, look here! They sky is falling!”. Pure misdirection while they stab us in the back again and again. God, I hate our government.

100 billion to Ukraine and only 8 billion for starving over-weight Americans. Whatever happened to LBJ's billion-dollar declaration to completely wipe out the poor in America? And Doorknob Hussein's sharing the wealth policy to save the poor? You can spend trillions to save the poor but they will always be there by choice or by entitlement.

The “War on Poverty” has been lost. Instead of a hand up, through all of the free or highly subsidized social programs, all we have been doing is to help a small number of those few whi worked to get ahead while sustaining the poverty of the masses. It might sound cold, but it is a Truth of Life— whatever you subsidize with federal money, you get MORE of that which you are attempting to prevent from happening and things get worse over time. In virtually every social program the government comes up with, corruption follows, and the problems and budgets only get larger. Unfounded “mandates” pile up and future problems maintaining all the programs eventually leads to collapse. Ignoring proper immigration law through inasaion of the Southern border only throws more fuel to the inferno on an out of control situation, and creates a never-ending vicious and unbroken cycle.

Eight billion isn't squat. We've already spent something in the neighborhood of 22 trillion on the war on poverty only to get more poverty, more unwed mothers, and more welfare recipients than before. I remember about ten years ago the city of Baltimore opened a food kitchen to help out the homeless and those on welfare. The kitchen was opened near a construction site. The kitchen started running out of food because the construction workers were coming over and getting a free lunch, then going back to work. Your tax dollars at work.

They started this back in 1965. Tens of trillions spent on the WAR ON POVERTY. It has actually worked to an extent. We now have the wealthiest impoverished people in the world (cell phones, air conditioners, automobiles, microwaves, TVs, game consoles, etc). What money cannot fix is the impoverished soul, the destroyed families, the addiction and despair of people who cannot see life more than five minutes ahead.

From USDA food data report: To qualify for Food Security and Assistance Program benefits, a person's gross monthly income must be no more than 130% above the national poverty line. For a family of three, that is $1,830 per month. "Spending on USDA's food and nutrition assistance programs reached a new high in 2021. Federal spending on USDA's food and nutrition assistance programs totaled $182.5 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2021, 49 percent more than the previous high of $122.8 in FY 2020." Well, then, fellow heartless Republicans, what's another measly $8 billion to finish the job by 2030?

Can't wait to see the parade of late-model vehicles in the local food pantry giveaway line. Hunger in the US is a phony issue. The streets are hardly lined with emaciated bodies. The "exceptions" prove the rule, and there are damn few exceptions. And all that "charity" will be passed along to the paying customers. Ain't nothing free.

More money thrown down a rat hole. There is a certain segment of the population in every civilization that simply refuses to do do the minimum necessary to care for themselves. That has been consistent throughout time. Jesus nailed it when He said, “The poor you will always have with you.” Btw, do you know how the government determines the number of hungry people? With a survey that asks questions like, “Have you been hungry in the last 6 months? Have you ever wondered if you were going to have enough money to buy food?” Do you know how many times in my life I could’ve answered “yes” to either of those questions?

Warren — Top Michigan GOP nominees contended a Saturday night rally with former President Donald Trump in Macomb County would help motivate their party's base and eventually benefit them on election night. At about 3:30 p.m., hundreds of people were entering the Macomb County Community College Sports and Expo Center in Warren to hear speeches from Trump, Republican candidate for governor Tudor Dixon and others. The event was taking place 38 days before a pivotal election, in which the GOP is hoping to unseat three Democrats who hold the battleground state's top offices.

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman was ridiculed after a video emerged of him giving an apparently nonsensical answer during a cable news interview. Fetterman, who is running for Senate in the Keystone State, suffered a stroke in May questions about his health have lingered. “I just wanted to check in and see how you’re doing,” MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked Fetterman on Friday — noting it was the first time they had spoken since the stroke.“I’m doing fantastic. It’s not about kicking balls in the authority or anything,” Fetterman responded. The garbled response drew laughs from Republicans who jumped on the clip on Twitter Saturday.

Vladimir Putin today came under stinging criticism from his own side after Russia was forced to withdraw troops from a key Ukrainian city this afternoon as Ukraine's eastern counteroffensive recaptures more territory. Ukrainian forces encircled the strategic eastern city of Lyman on Saturday in a counteroffensive that has humiliated the Kremlin, while Russian bombardments intensified after Moscow illegally annexed a swath of Ukrainian territory in a sharp escalation of the war. Russia's own Tass and RIA news agencies announced that troops have fled Lyman, citing the Russian defence ministry.

Among them was an off-the-record transcript of Obama in a roundtable conversation with progressive opinion journalists on Jan 17, 2017, just 3 days before he left office. As Bloomberg’s Jason Leopold reported, Obama referred to the 2016 election loss during the discussion and wondered about what might have been if only Bill and Hillary had made “different decisions.” Interestingly, Leopold notes that he hadn’t asked for this transcript specifically.

What is love? The permanent kind. Not the kind that breaks down upon contact with reality and life’s to-be-expected hardships. I’m talking about the kind built to last until death. The real stuff. Love is mutual self-fulfillment through mutual self-sacrifice. Love’s most perfect expression is in a good and lasting marriage. Through vocal repetition, we have become habituated to the notion that marriage and children are a better deal for men than women. Men get it. It’s not easy to be a mother—particularly a working mother. It’s a real sacrifice and it’s not easy. Lost completely in the conversation and thinking, however, are men’s motivations and sacrifices—most often made in silence.

The White House quietly announced a change in its student debt forgiveness program on Thursday that could exclude up to 4 million borrowers with private loans backed by the government. The change was so quiet, in fact, that lawmakers weren't even informed of the altering qualifications. Democratic Representative Yvette Clarke said the change need to be 'revisited' to not 'dash' the hopes of people who thought they were receiving relief and now will not.

Scientists fear they've found the next big pandemic threat — a virus that lives in monkeys in Africa. Simian hemorrhagic fever virus (SHFV) causes devastating internal bleeding and kills virtually every primate it infects. It hijacks the immune system, disabling key defense mechanisms and breaking the body down cell by cell. No cases have been detected in humans yet but it is 'poised for a spillover', according to US researchers. By developing tests and monitoring the virus now 'the global health community could potentially avoid another pandemic', they said. Experts at the University of Colorado Boulder are raising the alarm due to SHFV's 'compatibility… with humans'. In a lab study,

Mayor Eric Adams is finalizing a deal with the Norwegian Cruise Line to house migrants on one of its massive cruise ships and dock it at Staten Island’s Homeport, The Post has learned. Adams wants to lease the luxury liner for at least six months and use it to house and process migrants before they enter the city’s shelter system, a source familiar with the matter said. The migrants would be allowed to come and go while staying on the ship, the source said. Preliminary estimates show the plan will be “cheaper” than erecting another tent city similar to the one the city plans to open in the Bronx

In keeping with British tradition for coins featuring male monarchs, Charles is not wearing a crown and faces left. Coins featuring an image of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, face right and wear a crown. With each successive monarch, the direction of silhouette is changed. The new coins are inscribed with "Charles III • D • G • REX • F • D," which is a condensed version of the Latin expression "by the Grace of God, Defender of the Faith."
