Before you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, take this one action

Kitchens across America are bustling with Thanksgiving dinner prep, turkeys brining, rolls and pies baking. But in millions of households families are at the end of a month in which food stamps were slashed, and are trying to figure out how to scrape together enough to eat for the rest of the month.

This isn't intended to guilt you out as you prepare your Thanksgiving feast, but here's a pretty astounding statistic:

Yep, this one dinner could provide 35 meals in food stamps. It's astounding in a couple of ways, mostly by pointing out just how cheap it really could be for this country to feed all of its hungry, particularly the 20 percent of our children who don't have enough to eat.

So this post isn't intended to make you feel guilty, but to prod you to act. Tell the House and Senate conferees on the Farm Bill to stop cutting food stamps.

Corruption in food stamps has reduced to food to the kids that need food.

Prepared food ONLY should be given to those needy kids. When food stamps go to parents they simply exchange them for cash and buy drugs etc with the money. Meanwhile their kids needing food go hungry.

According to my little name jacker above, you should be able to do just that. All you have to do is scam the system like so many of the moochers do.

Hey ... a question for all our Lib friends out there ...

How many people can you feed with one month's worth of jet fuel from Al Gore's private plane trips?
