LIberal Lies

Things must be pretty good in this country or liberals wouldn't have to make up lies like "war on women", "rape culture", or "food insecurity", as examples:
The Agriculture Department announced this morning that 48 million Americans live in “food insecure” households. Soon you’ll hear we’re suffering an epidemic of hunger. While the federal government is already feeding more than 100 million Americans, we’ll be told that it just isn’t enough.

But it isn’t true. “Food insecurity” is a statistic designed to mislead. USDA defines food insecurity as being “uncertain of having, or unable to acquire, enough food to meet the needs of all their members because they had insufficient money or other resources for food"...

USDA noted: “For most food-insecure households, the inadequacies were in the form of reduced quality and variety rather than insufficient quantity"...

USDA food security reports, by creating the illusion of a national hunger epidemic, have helped propel a vast increase in federal food aid in recent years. But that has been a dietary disaster across the land.

A Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics study concluded that “food insecure” adults are far more likely to be obese than “food secure” adults — indicating that a shortage of food is not the real health problem. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “seven times as many (low-income) children are obese as are underweight.” President Obama proclaimed September as National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.

This is more of the same from the folks who brought subsidized free lunches into schools as a way to manipulate how schools operate. I will not deny there are some kids who benefit from the meals programs. But there are many others who linger on the program even after their families have improved their lots in life. Prime example, a former friend of mine had three kids and was divorced. We helped her rehab the rental she was forced to live in. They needed that help at the time because she was unemployed and living on whatever her ex would send. She got a job as a police dispatcher and moved up the ranks. Her kids stayed on free lunches. She married a man who bought her a new house, cars, etc. The kids stayed on free lunch. She divorced the new husband, got the house and a settlement, plus court ordered child support from prior husband. The kids stayed on free lunch. She married yet again, moved into a very very nice house, but the kids stayed on free lunch. Finally her son graduated from high school and got a scholarship BECAUSE HE WAS ON FREE LUNCH!!! People do not realize how the system is manipulated and how scholarships and grants are often given to "poor" children who are not poor based on this one incidental.
