When It’s Not About the Box

February 15th, 2018 Viewed 702 times

Pres. Trump’s recent budget proposal came out, and this time around it included a proposal to replace some of the SNAP money that people are getting with a box of food that’s chosen based on governmental factors:

Under a proposal in the president’s budget many participants in the program would be given half their benefits in the form of a “Harvest Box” full of food preselected for nutritional value and economic benefit to American farmers. The cache of cheaper peanut butter, canned goods, pasta, cereal, “shelf stable” milk and other products would now be selected by the federal government, not by the people actually eating it.

While Ann Althouse wonders whether Trump is simply attempting to troll people or whether it’s a creative way to think outside the box by thinking about a box, I think it’s another persuasion play.

Budget Cuts

What are you wasting your money on?

That really is the biggest question that you have to answer when it comes to saving money and creating a budget.  You see, we all waste money—we impulse buy things that we see, we buy things at full price instead of waiting for a sale, and we buy things that we could make cheaper than pay for them.

Let Me Give to the Poor, Not You

2008-10-07t223221-450x361-us-usa-politics.jpgPart of President Obama’s budget has a weird twist. I mean, we all know that he wants to raise taxes on the wealthy. We also know that he wants to give that money to the poor. So why is he doing it by capping the amount that the wealthy can give away?

Because socialism is all about government control.
