In the week leading up to Thanksgiving, food banks across the United States have seen unprecedented lines with struggling families hoping to get some help for the holidays.
A report from the Rhode Island Community Food Bank estimated that roughly as many as 1 in 4 households in the state was facing food insecurity. Food banks in the state have seen a 26% increase in demand this year.
“I don’t think we’re going to get through this unless Congress approves another COVID-19 relief bill,” the food bank’s executive director told The Providence Journal.
The North Texas Food Bank told the Dallas Morning News that their location handed out roughly 8,500 meals, which us up from about 1,000 on an average year, according to The Hill. Some reports have indicated that people waited in line for over 5 hours at some food banks.
DB Note: Thanksgiving? You must be kidding!
“Government today is growing too strong to be safe. There are no longer any citizens in the world there are only subjects. They work day in and day out for their masters they are bound to die for their masters at call. Out of this working and dying they tend to get less and less.”
“The ideal Government of all reflective men, from Aristotle onward, is one which lets the individual alone – one which barely escapes being no government at all.”
“It [the State] has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities; it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the high dignity and impeccability of a State religion; its agents become a separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men.”
“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out… without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.”
Quote from the following article:
At this time, nothing is being done to provide millions of unemployed, impoverished Americans with vital aid for essentials to life.
Millions of US households are food insecure, millions more face eviction from residences in January for lack of income to pay rent.
Millions of US debt-entrapped students can’t service loans for the same reason.
The vast majority of ordinary Americans struggle daily to get by while privileged ones never had things better.
The greatest ever engineered wealth transfer from ordinary people to the super-rich added trillions of dollars to their wealth in the last four years — around $1 trillion this year alone for US billionaires.
All politicians lie, Biden as untrustworthy as Trump.
In August, candidate Biden falsely pledged to largely reverse Trump’s tax cuts for the rich.
He lied saying he’ll use the funds for education, healthcare, childcare, strengthening Social Security, and other vital homeland needs.
He’ll do none of the above. Nor will he make corporations and rich households pay their fair share…
