Message to Barack Obama
Has anyone noticed the similarities between Tweedledee (George W. Bush) and Tweedledum (Barack Obama)?
The guy who promised us "change you can believe in" is giving us "more of the same old crap" on the Cuba issue. He fooled me once; he won't fool me again in 2012! Everyone should start considering writing-in NOTA. Very little difference between the two major capitalist parties.
In the meantime, here is today's report from the NYT:
WASHINGTON — The number of Americans who lacked reliable access to sufficient food shot up last year to its highest point since the government began surveying in 1995, the Agriculture Department reported on Monday.
In its annual report on hunger, the department said that 17 million American households, or 14.6 percent of the total, “had difficulty putting enough food on the table at times during the year.” That was an increase from 13 million households, or 11.1 percent, the previous year.
Brother, can you spare a Big Mac?
