Yeah, you go ahead and explain it to us Johnny. Via MM.
The Digital History project website at the University of Houston, co-authored by Steven Mintz and Sara McNeil, has a brief blurb on cases of starvation in the U.S. during the Great Depression:
President Herbert Hoover declared, "Nobody is actually starving. The hoboes are better fed than they have ever been." But in New York City in 1931, there were 20 known cases of starvation; in 1934, there were 110 deaths caused by hunger. There were so many accounts of people starving in New York that the West African nation of Cameroon sent $3.77 in relief.
If I got a whiff of this as a parent, there would be hell to pay. The whole sordid story here.
Do Republicans respect ANYbody?
"Half of 'em are drunk or stoned. These would be the people I would LEAST want to make important decisions about our future."
"Let's start with the young. What do they know? That's why they're young, they don't HAVE to know anything."
After having been an educator in public schools for years, one thing I can promise these jokers: Never underestimate "the young." They're smart, creative, energetic, full of promise, impressively strong-willed, and despite what Stossel and Krauthammer may think, they are our future.
And they are awesome.
