Sadly Canadians were caught up in the US led distraction in Iraq. That's why I read Amnesty International. I want to know what's really going on, rather than be led by propaganda from someone with an agenda to make themselves and their friends wealthy.
Seriously... how could you possibly get caught up in something you were not involved in?
I don't support giving poor people money. I support making all basic necessities free and eliminating welfare checks and minimum wage. If someone earns money, they can spend it how they like.
When children go to bed hungry at night, does it really make a difference where they are? You keep denying your country has a problem. The sad truth is, most countries have poverty. While the US is rich when measure on a per capita basis, most of the wealth is held by a few people at the top. Each year the club at the top get more exclusive as more and more people fall through the cracks into abject poverty.

It is idiocy unless you truly want to feel REAL hunger and real poverty. If you TRULY want to experience the helplessness of poverty maybe China is the place for you.
However if you want to sit on your azz all day and watch TV and collect free everything from the many state and government agencies available to you then maybe the US is not bad at all.
People falling through the cracks... lol. It is a way of life for our poor in America. Their living is feeding off the public trough.
