Why Are There So Many Beggars On Street Corners Now?

A formal welcome back to Kavips who took a month and a half off and didn’t tell anyone…

“Get a job” gets screamed at them perhaps 20 times a day.  Unfortunately they have to beg to eat and that takes up all the time they would otherwise go out an look for a job.

But isn’t there a safety net?

No, thanks to the Republican Congress which passed draconian stringencies on SNAP recipients cutting their food benefits by almost 100%.

The mandate sounds innocuous at first.. Cutting food benefits by 30% of the wages a person earns.  Seems fair to most people. Better to cut the benefits from those who work instead of those who can’t.  Even I’d agree with that principle.

But as we have seen with all corporate proposals, (Common Core being just one of them), when they get implemented, they give a much different and harmful result..

How much does it take to feed a family of four?  Can it be done on $100 a week?…

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
