free food

I’ve never worked somewhere that sells prepackaged food, but I’ve got to believe that they make an employee throw out all of the food that’s “expired.” If I was the one charged with such a task, I’d be aware that the so-called “expiration dates” are merely suggestions, and that food can and does last longer than companies sometimes claim. Rest assured that I would have an impressive stockpile of aging yet deliciously free food if ever given the opportunity.

http://www.breadoflifemission.org/services.htmlSpeaking of free food, it’s pretty absurd that food costs money to begin with. It’s perfectly reasonable for specialty foods to cost money; such products may be difficult to grow, or hard to find, or just especially tasty. But I think it’s the duty of all modern governments to meet the basic needs of its people, and those who are hungry should always be presented with a way to obtain nutrition. Even if it’s just bread and water, a government should sustain its people. Food stamps are a nice effort but, based on my complete lack of knowledge concerning their usefulness (except that they don’t buy diapers – thanks Eminem), they really aren’t sufficient.

I know I’d be willing to pay increased taxes if it meant that more people could sit around all day without working.
