Is this what the Left in America want for us, food rations and starvation?

Maybe we should not have caused more world hunger and rising food prices by taking 40% of our corn crops for fuel, what do you think?

The Left is always complaining about how fat Americans are I guess socialism is one way to get folks to slim down.

NK is a dictatorship.

Socialism can only work in a democratic society.


Socialism has nothing to do with NK's famine.

Now, now, we didn't cause more world hunger by burning our crops for fuel. We just drove the price up and cause hyper-inflation for food as a means to make the 3rd world and every other consumer of US foods even more poor by making it more expensive. Is it Monsanto's fault people cannot afford their grain?

Follow the money......

Now who was that again who administers the Food Stamp programs, JP Morgan?

When our POTUS willfully ignores our Constituion, our Congress (his shadow government of czars and legislating via regulation), and federal court orders (re: oil drilling permits and halting Obamacare), is that a democratic society or is that the beginnings of a dictatorship?

What about the WI judge that recently ruled that family farmers have no right to consume milk from their own cows or vegetables from their own gardens? Is that a democratic society or is that the ultimate infringement up on rights by limiting the very food one can consume even when planted by one's own labors and harvested from one's own land?

The useful idiots on the left largely are clueless. They think they can still create a Marxist Utopia. However, the global elite class does want every country's citizens at large to be as poor as N. Korea. There will be the elites, and then everyone else, no middle class.

Power and Control, what is not to luv about central planning?

People (including children) have been dying of starvation in the DPRK for generations, why should Americans be made to feel guilty because the DPRK leadership decided to invest in military technology rather than farming technology?

Lay the guilt trip on their next-door neighbors, the Chinese...

The left in America is no where near the right in Europe, much less North Korea, on the other hand when you have a completely unregulated free market you do get starvation. There were huge problems with malnutrition in the United States Prior to the New Deal. Before the 1940s it was wide spread among the poor in both the rural south and in the slums of the Midwest and Northeast.
