Americans now don't have enough money for food? What's happened to that place? I feel sorry for them all. Maybe we should send aid like we do to Africa....

This is another "fluff" piece done by a liberal group looking for more handouts.NYS has the second largest entitlemt program in the country.The only way anyone has a food shortage is if they are selling their EBT cards and looking at the people in the intercity(Rochester) it sure doesn't look like they are going without food.Just more liberal B/S.

That is a lie. Take a look at them some time. They are better fed then at their mommy's knee. If their children are hungary, maybe they should quit smoking, and swilling beer. There was a time when all the people in America wanted to help those less well off, but they bred like rabbits, knowing full well they couldn't feed these children on their own, just took it for granted the rest of the country would raise them. That is just crazy

Everybody gets hungry every day. If people get hungry, they should eat.

If people only have so much money for food they should spend it on food. And only food. No drugs, no alcohol, and no cigarettes. Just food. There are food banks, and Churches that have food to hand out. There is no excuse, not one for anyone to be hungary in America.
