Giving Charity a New Face

Posted by on March 9, 2013

According to Facebook, I have 600 friends. Statistics would say that 84 of them woke up this morning not knowing how they were going to fill their plate with food.

So how do live in a world where (according to the CDC) 68.8% of adults are either overweight or obese?

 In Mitchell alone, we have a great support safety net.

  • We have the school breakfast, lunch & summer food system offering free and reduced meals
  • We have a state of the art James Valley Community Center with nutritional meals for our Seniors
  • We have Meals on Wheels
  • We have a weekend snack pack program that sends home food to families for the weekend
  • We have the Mitchell Food Pantry that handed out 1553 bags of food serving 644 people in February alone
  • We have the Love Feast
  • We have churches and community members who give and give
Why does it appear things are not getting better?

    Typical. Your 84 people can waste time on Facebook, but can’t earn a living and have to parasitise the rest of us.

    Too much unregulated “assistance” makes for a larger crop of deadbeats. Too much “safety net” produces people with no aversion to making bad decisions.

    Irresponsible breeding is the single biggest–maybe the only–problem this world really has. Every other problem is caused by, or made worse, by overpopulation.
