Food stamps

My comment is real simple. Food is a human right. There is no one that doesn't NEED food. The measure of any society is how it cares for for it's citizens. We pay taxes to ensure security, that includes food security. I see fascism creeping into America under the guise "what's good for us". The government (actually it's the insurance companies) sets standards as to how much we should weigh, what our BMI should be, how many calories we should consume in a day. When the government controls the very thing that gives life...you've got the beginning of fascism. After reading some of the petty remarks on this forum, I see petty people, mired down in petty jealousy and wanting to control because a person is poor. With 1 in 10 American's receiving food stamps, that's a lot of control. Oh people...be careful what you wish for! Now, ya wanna talk about Monsanto and genetically modified food? Educate yourselves!
