Dog food for $47 a bag, and it flies out of the store. No cereal filler, first ingredient venison, salmon, even bison. Not many social security beneficiaries or poor people can afford duck or free range Australian lamb for themselves - unless hamburger helper just came out with a new flavor.
But, hey, the campaign claim is that the cause of our big deficit is social services spending and that needs to be eliminated - so vote in the folks that offer to cut that spending and your taxes, feed the dog the good stuff on the savings, and chuck the grandparents under the bus. They're poor because they didn't work hard enough or save enough, so they deserve what they get. (Not sure what the dog did to be more deserving).
Let's re-think this a bit. I have not yet seen any proof whatever that we are succeeding in shooting our way to world peace. So let's can instead the endless unwinable wars and the insatiable defence budgets. The Russians surrendered the Cold War when it became obvious they were spending their way into oblivion on armaments and quit. But we haven't won while we - as a government and a people - continue that same misprioritized spending.
