    Reuters: 1 of 8 New Yorkers Need Food Assistance

    In their nostalgic zeal for the bad old days, Republicans are bringing back an icon of their beloved Hoover era: Soup kitchens.

    According to Reuters news service, more than 1 million New Yorkers are forced to choose between paying rent or buying food, and the city’s major food bank distributes over 250,000 meals a day.

    “NEW YORK (Reuters) – Food or rent? That is the daily choice faced by about 1.2 million of New York’s 8.2 million people. Faced with that choice, mostly they pay rent and rely on emergency or charity food to survive, poverty activists say.

    “‘It’s a struggle,’ said 53-year-old Pierre Simmons … as he wrapped up a bagel from his soup kitchen lunch …. ‘I have a job, but the cost of living is so high it makes it hard to buy food.’ …

    “While the city’s Wall Street bankers … collect nearly $24 billion in bonuses … more than one-fifth of New Yorkers … make ends meet below … $10,000 a year ….

    “‘I feel angry that we still need to be in this kind of business,’ said Lucy Cabrera, the Food Bank’s president and chief executive. …

    “On the other side of the Bronx, people began to gather outside a soup kitchen … as rain started to drizzle from the sky. … Virgilio Avilus, 45, limps back to his table carrying his lunch. In 1988 he was working as a window washer … when he fell four floors. After spending … 10 years in hospitals, Avilus now has an apartment of his own that costs him $200 a month rent. His government income is $250 a month. ‘That’s all I have to my name,’ he said. ‘I have to eat here. I can’t be spending $10 a day on food.'”

    According to the article, 40% of NYC families with children have difficulty affording food, and 20% of the city’s children depend on free food to survive. And, of course, this story is replicated all across America. Welcome to the Wingnut Economy.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Sucking up to rightwing dictators is part of the CHEAP LABOR CONSERVATIVE strategy to beat down the wages of working men and women by creating a pool of offshore labor that is forced to work for almost nothing under sweatshop conditions.

    “When you cut right through it, right-wing ideology is just ‘dime-store economics’ — intended to dress their ideology up and make it look respectable. You don’t really need to know much about economics to understand it. They certainly don’t. It all gets down to two simple words. ‘Cheap labor’.

    “That’s their whole philosophy in a nutshell …. The larger the labor supply, the cheaper it is. The more desperately you need a job, the cheaper you’ll work …. If you are a wealthy elite – or a ‘wannabe’ like most dittoheads – your wealth, power and privilege is enhanced by a labor pool forced to work cheap.

    “… [L]et’s apply this principle, and see how many right-wing positions become instantly understandable. …

    “Cheap-labor conservatives don’t like the minimum wage, or other improvements in wages and working conditions. …

    “Cheap-labor conservatives like ‘free trade’, NAFTA, GATT, etc. … [b]ecause there is a huge supply of desperately poor people in the third world who … will work cheap. …

    “Cheap-labor conservatives don’t like unions … [b]ecause when labor ‘sticks together’ wages go up. …

    “Cheap-labor conservatives support every right-wing authoritarian hoodlum in the third world. …

    “Is the pattern becoming clearer? These cheap-labor Republicans have no problem at all opening the public purse for corporate interests. It’s ‘social spending’ on people who actually need assistance that they just ‘can’t tolerate’. And now you know why. Destitute people work cheaper, while a harsh police state keeps them suitably terrorized.”

    The point is that now that Saddam is dead, we’ll never know the secret deals between the Reagan/Bush team and the murderous dictator (the Iraqi one).

    “Crimes against humanity
    Hussein was convicted on November 5 of crimes against humanity in connection with the killings of 148 people in the town of Dujail after an attempt on his life.

    The dictator was found guilty of murder, torture and forced deportation.

    The Dujail episode falls within 12 of the worst cases out of 500 documented “baskets of crimes” during the Hussein regime.

    The U.S. State Department says torture and extrajudicial killings followed the Dujail killings and that 550 men, women and children were arrested without warrants.”

    Funny entries Moonbat!s. Somehow my memory doesn’t fail me like many Moonbat!s here on GoldiesAss.

    Saddam’s uncle and future father-in-law Kharaillah Tulfah, a leader in the failed Nazi-backed 1941 coup in Iraq, influenced him, and induced an early maturity in his political thought. I forgot this as one of the many reasons Furball held Saddam in such high esteem. He married his first cousin!

    When Saddam returned in the 60s to lead the coups to get him in power he had the CIA’s backing. I wonder who was US President then? Another reason Furball liked Saddam.

    “I think it’s a great verdict — I mean, Saddam Hussein is a war criminal and he’s getting what he deserves,” Howard Dean, the Democratic national chairman, said on “This Week” on ABC.

    Representative John P. Murtha, the Pennsylvania Democrat who has become the face of his party’s opposition to the war in Iraq, said the verdict was the right one.

    Nancy Pelosi wrote this: ““The Iraqi people are to be commended for bringing Saddam to justice in an Iraqi court. I commend our brave American troops in Iraq as well, for the trial could not have taken place without the security and logistical support they provided.” This is another reason Furball needs his meds.

    Why are Moonbat!s on GoldiesAss so delusional?

    Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

    November 13, 2006 Saddam Hussein Verdict

    Seventy-eight percent (78%) of American voters believe the death penalty verdict for Saddam Hussein was appropriate. A Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 Likely Voters found that 13% disagree and 9% aren’t sure.

    The guilty verdict, delivered earlier this month after 39 days of testimony, sentenced Hussein to death by hanging for committing crimes against humanity. Specifically, the sentence refers to Hussein’s role in the deaths of 148 Shiite Muslims in Dujail.

    Ninety-one percent (91%) of Republicans believe the death sentence is fair; that number falls to 66% among Democrats. Conservatives (89%) and moderates (77%) are more likely than liberals (67%) to support the verdict.

    Seventy-two percent (72%) of all voters believe that Hussein received a fair trial. Eight percent (8%) believe he did not and 20% are not sure.

    Once again Moonbat!s on GoldiesAss are out of step with the US population, even after the election.

    I guess facts hurt the libtard Moonbat! mind.

  52. 64

    Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

    Congressman Tom Lantos (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House International Relations Committee, has issued this statement: “An Iraqi court has rightly handed down this verdict, and it is just.”

    Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) said the verdict brought long deserved justice for Iraqis but added that Iraqis “have traded a dictator for chaos” since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

    Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.), the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, said the verdict reflects that the Iraqis have established a functioning judiciary and a rule of law. But, he added, “Holding Saddam Hussein accountable for his crimes against the Iraqi people is a necessary and significant achievement”

    Once again Moonbat!s on GoldiesAss are out of step.

    Kuwaitis, who were invade and occupied by Hussein’s military in 1990, praised the Iraqi court’s verdict and sentence. “This is good news,” said Kuwaiti political analyst and former oil minister Ali al-Baghli . “Saddam deserves to be hanged because of the atrocities he inflicted on his people for the past 35 years and on his neighbors also. He sent millions of people to their deaths.”

    Many adults in Germany are content with the conclusion of Saddam Hussein’s trial, according to a poll by Forsa released by Stern and RTL. 59 per cent of respondents agree with the verdict.

    Once again Moonbat!s on GoldiesAss are out of step with the other countries.

    Update::::11:44pm Eastern update…CNN and Arab media reporting that pictures/video expected soon…Iraqi state TV reporting it will air images…*** From Michelle Malkin:CNN correspondent says a witness reports there was “fear in Hussein’s face” as he headed to execution…Celebration…more execution witness details…refused to wear a hood…had a Koran…shouted “Allahu Akbar!”*** Who cares.. he’s dead, good riddence!!!!

    Iraq’s national security adviser said: “He was a broken man… You could see fear in his face.” Good, like those he killed?

    NYT pisses on the party…. Somehow not shocking.

    Piss off “Butcher of Baghdad”, shocking a liberal who get’s it right.

    From Huffington cited above:

    We Got Him!!!! Only $354 Billion & 3,000 US Military!
    (I’d call that a Bargain. The best we’ve ever had…)

    Funny how we never include the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi deaths and maimings in our cheery little outlook . . . but then, wingnuts don’t really care about anybody else, do they.

    And Iraq is better off today than it was in 2002? I wonder . . .

    Of course, if all you’re counting is size, yeah, Bush’s is bigger . . . congratulations.

    Proud at 79,

    Last I heard, Saddam was the only war criminal executed yesterday, so of course I’m referring to Saddam.

    I can’t help it if people infer what they choose to infer.

    Stick a sock in it. We may not agree with the prosecution of the war, but I care enough about this country to respectfully disagree. By your implied hate speech, you have proven that yourself to be a card-carrying ACLU’er and a Secular Progressive that worships the likes of George Soros. George Soros must die !!

    #84 – Clever, but you haven’t disproven that you didn’t mean Bush either. This blog seems to attract a number of those who would want to see the President tried and convicted at the World Court of war crimes, then somehow executed.
    I am all for the First amendment, but those who abuse have to face the consequences.

    When history writes the chapter I think we would have been better off sending him off to the ICC at the Hague. But that would have taken someone in charge with more maturity than the Bush form of cowboy justice.

    #86 – should read; but you haven’t disproven that you meant Bush either instead of a double negative.

    #87 – Until this planet becomes a one world order (God forbid), it is none of the ICC’s dam business. Congress had the opportunity to veto the war, which in fact is an undeclared war, as was the Korean War and Vietnam.

    Europe, as a whole is a secular continent in chronic recession, that has become infested with Islamists partly because they worship political correctness, so to believe they have the moral high ground is beyond ridiculous.

    You may well be correct, but I’m afraid it’s likely the Iraqis specifically, and Muslims in general, would view the ICC as a biased Court of the Crusaders. In that context alone I would favor a Muslim Court, albeit not the mess we saw during the monster’s trial. The Iraqi Court oddly chose the killings of 148 Shiite Muslims from Dujail, as the basis of the trial, when a selection made from one of his Sunni massacres might have gone farther in dulling the Sunni reactions to come.

    OK, Saddam’s proverbial fifteen minutes are up, and he’s now a stinking piece of rotting meat buried in the ground.

    Good. The putz got what he deserved. He can’t do any more damage.

    Now, can we get back to dealing with some of the world’s other problems?

    Nice try Goldy….
    No one took you out of context, you are not a victim of a right wing conspiracy…You are a victim of your own ideology…. When the heat gets turned up, becuase of your own words and views, you run for cover….
    I would respect you more if you just took responsibility for your words…instead of blaming someone else for reacting to them….
    Saddam? Good Riddance. Rumsfeld? Patriot. Who has done more for this country than 99.9% of those reading this….

    Saddam was a GREAT friend to America when we needed him most during the Reagan years! As this picture attests to, Saddam made war on our BITTER enemies Iraq! And he sacrificed the EVIL muslims in his own country! Reagan, and Rumsfeld were smart enough to ensure that Saddam had as much deadly gas as he needed!!

    ANd yet now that the DEMONcRATS have won the Senate and House, they have killed our beloved friend Saddam!!!

    You unGODly DemoncRATS will pay for this outrage against GOD and his chosen leader Gearge W. Bush! The Greatest President EVER!!

    35 Want a job done right? Hire Democrats! We won World War 2 in less time and at less cost than it took you wingnuts to hang Saddam. You’ve got, what, one (1) — count ‘em, ONE — war criminal to your credit now?

    Sounds good. Are you advocating dropping 1/2 of the available US nuclear arsenal to ‘make a point’, and show a willingness to sacrifice US troops at a rate of hundreds per day, ration food, gasoline, tires for your Prius, to US citizens to supply the troops, build 10s of thousands of state-of-the art aircraft, be drafted, accept the losses of 80-100 heavy bomber aircraft in single mission, and partitioning Iraq/Malaysia/ into an Islamist/Western sectors, and allowing the military to execute insurgents/saboteurs on the spot?

    Of course, one could ask what the value to the reduction of the length of the war was of the MASS internment of US citizens of a particular identifiable ethic background authorized by FDR (Mr. “son of a financially-privileged family parents and opium-dealing grandfather/Pack the USSC with 5 new Associate Justices — taking it from 9 to 14 — to get his way” himself), the ramifications of running the national debt up to 90% ( of the US GDP (we were at 65% in 2005) in 1944, and 120% within a year/two after that, and the imprisonment of conscientious objectors who refused any alternative service and striking Union members…

    (Wiki Bio) Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born on January 30, 1882 in Hyde Park, in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York. His father, James Roosevelt, Sr., and his mother, Sara Ann Delano, were each from wealthy old New York families, of Dutch and French ancestry respectively. Franklin was their only child. His maternal grandfather, Warren Delano, Jr., made a fortune in the opium trade in China.[1]

    To all of you who have posted “kill-Bush” comments: Keep talking, scumbags. People will just walk away from your hate. Just like Air America is fizzling out, so will your pathetic audience do also.
