  •  Outstanding body of work (8+ / 0-)

    capped off with this:

    There are ways to lower the use of foodstamps.   Increase minimum wage.   Require better benefits.  Lower debt assessments.  And so many more.  And everyone benefits.   But asking us to despise or shame people who are poor and need our help isn't the answer to this problem at all.
    which should be the left's pat answer to the right's dog whistle.

    Excellent work and republished to Hunger in America .

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
