    I do have to wonder how much money is stolen by the handlers, its a sad reality in all situations where someone has control of alot of money.
    I agree 100%. Providing food is possible at relatively low cost.

    No. It isn't.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    A human right???? really???????
    There are many kooks who post here. Nothing that someone must provide to another can ever be a human right.

    Their is no inherent right to food, but state led sanctions that lead to starvation is indeed a war crime.

    We have seen many socialist and authoritarian nations starve their enemies.

    What do we do about political parties who destroy their countries by unrestricted immigration? I believe that should be considered a war crime.

    I'd rather give some of my tax dollars to those starving kids in Yemen than to the land-manatees I see pushing over-stuffed food stamp carts down the grocery store aisles.

    In Canada and most West Europe even prisoners are provided humane conditions and good food.

    I am not an important person -- I have no political power.

    George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were some of the first prominent people who stood for Universal Human Rights.
