Something is wrong with our government/economy when millions of children go to bed hungry each night.

Why is everything the responsibility of the government?

The children that go to bed hungry (I don't know the number, but any is too many) are the responsibility of the parent and society; not be confused with big brother and the government.

How much are we contributing to charity? How are we selecting the causes our charities support? How are we analyzing the work those charities do? We have a FAR better chance of our money going to those in need through well managed charities than through another poorly managed government agency.

From observing kids who go hungry in the school system, it is the parents fault not the government. They waste their wic, food stamps, or other asst. needed. There are so many resources out there. I feel badly for each of those kids but it is the parents to blame.

48/49 % on food stamps.
There is no reason for a child to be hungry! Where did the money go!

Food stamps don't actually give you that much food

Rag. I really don't know. I will take your word for that. I support 3 food banks. One in the city PHL. Two locally. They are always stocked for our needy...
