LET THEM EAT CAKE

Now that the House Republicans are officially on record for trying to reduce food stamps….let us call in the Queen who blithely said LET THEM EAT CAKE, although the truly poor in our nation probably could not afford to do that. Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t our representatives there to help us?? Eric Kantor seems to think all poor people are layabouts, and that taking them off $1.40 a meal would turn them into over-achievers.

Get a job! A real job, Eric! You languish in a world of free health care, salary in the six digit category, and several “recesses” a year.
Do you have time to actually inquire of a single parent working two minimum wage jobs and trying to bring up children why they are so lazy?? Calls of fraud to the system are no excuse for letting many
of the children of our country go to bed hungry. There will always be fraud….and for those of you with excessive “faith”, let me remind you what Jesus said about the poor always being with us. He had miraculous ways of feeding them. The government has food stamps.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
