Well, just DUH, and SMH.


The survey also looked at homeownership, race and having a disability in relation to food security. Results showed that 4.9 percent of homeowners and 15.5 percent of renters were food insecure, meaning they had “low” or “very low” food security.

I place high value in being able to quantify these things. Especially because if I made an unquantified claim, people would ask me for a cite. And you would never accept "Well, duh, everyone knows that..."

I don't know what the government thinks the definition of food insecurity is, but I have yet to see any low income people, including the homeless, who look emaciated from hunger. Most of them, especially the children, are overweight. So they are all getting a steady supply of food from somewhere.

The only underweight people are the meth heads and even they aren't skeletal, so they are getting food when they remember to eat.

And OP feels entitled to free housing, medical/dental/vision, no obligation to be active in the work force, California weather, .... all paid for by those who work for it.

My suggestion is getting off medication, shaking off unrealistic expectations, write resume, make daily list of where to apply for jobs, look for housing options, learn to cook.

Food insecurity—the condition assessed in the food security survey and represented in USDA food security reports—is a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food. Hunger is an individual-level physiological condition that may result from food insecurity.Oct 4, 2017
Note that involuntarily missing a few meals is considered food insecurity, but probably won't make someone look emaciated. Hunger can have ill effects, such as distracting kids from their school studies, long before they starve to death.

I'm okay with work requirements for Medicaid recipients. Puts them (sorta) on par with people who get medical from their employer.

Given my dead-end job history, my resume is essentially useless.

All recent discussion about multimillionaire condo renters aside, you are talking about two different economic tiers, especially if you're not differentiating between "upscale" or "mainstream" renters and the bottom half or so. Duh is an understatement.

Nobody "gets" anything" from an employer. You work for it. You pay for it. You are what you make yourself to be.
