  1. Americans struggle with hunger every day, about one in six. These troubles all of us, but some of us have voted Tea Party Confederates into public office. This country is the breadbasket of the world. There is no reason for the cowardice that lead to these monsters being entrusted with ruling America. America has the most advanced intelligence, security, and military in the world. America is under siege and this siege is causing one in six Americans to struggle with hunger every day. Tomorrow it will be one in three Americans, then one in two, then you will be carrying your 3 year old daughters still warm corps, dead of starvation after spending every penny you could beg borrow or steal to get her to the hospital that will no longer have the resources to help her. Remember, “Health care is a service, not a right.” You’ll carry her out of the hospital dead with diarrhea running down your legs and walk past beautiful buildings and abundant food looking for a place to bury your daughter’s lifeless corps so you can go and die in peace. The Tea Party gods you and your neighbors, friends, and family worship as the saviors of American morality and budgets won’t look at you or her because they don’t want to know. They’re too fragile to realize there’s no reason for the deliberate lack of food and medicine distribution that caused this famine. Tea Party monsters want the government to do nothing besides provide for the national defense. They don’t want ANYONE to get medical care, food, housing, haven for the elderly, unemployment insurance, mental health care, . Those of us that haven’t been directly affected yet figure you’re somehow to blame for your circumstances. How could you be so evil to let your daughter die? Even if you only care about money, these enemy combatants ruined our credit (kooky if you know anything at all about economics, which Washington D.C. rulers don’t). The Tea Party infiltrated the Washington, District of Columbia's government and deliberately prevented it from doing its job establishing a budget. They knew this would happen just as surely as they knew they could murder thousands of unionized public servants by blowing up the twin towers in New York.

  2. And our government did nothing at all about this. This is why Standard and Poors in Canada downgraded America's credit rating, causing our debt (that we shouldn't have because it's nutty - I'll explain) to cost more interest...on Trillions of dollars. Don’t blame S&P, you did this. You voted for these bastards. And if you didn’t your friends, neighbors, and family did. If we’re in a depression and can’t get by, how are we supposed to pay more interest? I can't for the life of me understand why America would borrow money from other countries, but I've been told that we did. Money is something a country coins, prints, or otherwise manufactures for its citizens as a method of trade within that country. It translates what you contribute into trade with what others contribute that you want or need in a uniform, if not necessarily fair way. It also enslaves the citizens of a country to its government. That's where a country's power comes from. There's no excuse for not making proper nutrition for all Americans the top priority of our elected officials. Brazil has done this. It's working. They still have poor people and struggles, but they have the nutrition necessary for their citizens to be resilient, hardworking, healthy, and successful, even in the face of adversity. When's the last time you thought of Brazil as a better country than America? I'm not donating one dime to enable anyone to back down from this fight. These Tea Party monsters don't want balanced budgets. These monsters don't disagree with you. These monsters can't stop what they're doing to America because they aren't in charge of themselves. These monsters are bought and paid for by highly organized international criminals that have infiltrated every nook and cranny of the Internet, local, state and federal government in this and other countries. They have bottomless pocket with infinite money because they've enslaved you, me, and everybody else. If five thousand of them saw the light tomorrow and got brave enough to stop raping Americans they'd be replaced before the sun went down.

    If you want to help starving Americans, fire a Tea Party supporter (AKA ALEC, national Governors’ Association, “fill in your state’s name here” Heritage Policy Center, and Americans for Prosperity, CATO Institute, GOPs that adopted the Tea Party platform in early 2010 and haven’t repented and changed their ways). If you can’t fire one, vote them out of office, cancel their contract, black ball them, out them for who they are and what they’re doing, do whatever it takes, zero tolerance…because there’s no excuse for domestic abuse. Unless you trust Sally Struthers to bring you fly swatters like she does in Ethiopia. This country is at war. It’s on our doorstep, not in somebody else’s country. How do we deal with enemy combatants? What if an enemy combatant were your governor, you legislator, your local representative, your senator, or you? What if that meant you were struggling with hunger today, and every day?
