THE HUNGER DAYS

Here you are, America, people in bread lines, masses of unemployed and the corporations and the rich get bailed out, the poor go back to work.

I was being cynical when I said they’d drag their feet on unemployment, the masses, the essential workers will have to go back to work. The President orders the meat packing plants to stay open, national security, the workers the expendables. There’s got to be a better way to process meat than these unsafe factories.

The shining city on a hill, the magical thinking, the President’s lack of empathy, the crass self interests of the political class taking partisanship over patriotism, as the gulf widens between those who have and those who have not.

These are the hunger days, and they won’t even give the hungry food stamps, they have to go to food banks, stand in line, beg their betters for a crust of bread, here in the USA.
