Who could possibly object to a government program that feeds the hungry?
After reading the report below, please tell us what you think. Do you see anything wrong with government taking your money by force (taxes) and spending it to feed a stranger or to pay for his health care?
From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs! Sounds reasonable does it not?
Tell us how much communism you are willing to tolerate?
In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs! – Karl Marx, 1875

Children from low-income families can get a free lunch at several places in Tarrant County this summer, courtesy of the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
One site has been added this year: Worthington Point Apartments, 12301 Hemphill St. in Crowley, where lunch will be served at noon weekdays through Aug. 24.
Meals will continue to be served at:
The Rosemont at Mayfield Villas apartments, 2002 Mayfield Villa Drive, Arlington, 1 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday through Aug. 23.
Rush Creek Apartments, 1200 W. Sublett Road, Arlington, through Aug. 24.

Snacks will be served at the Arlington sites — at 3:30 p.m. at the Rosemont apartments and at 5 p.m. at Rush Creek.
One in 4 Texas children is eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school, but the state’s participation in the summer food program is one of the lowest in the nation.
In Texas, only 1 in 11 children from low-income families had access to summer meals last year.
There are no income or registration requirements, and any child under 18 will be fed.
