Food v. Protest

A recent article by Paul Krugman in the New York Times hit the nail on the head.  Here is the piece that says what so few have seen so clearly:

Hypocrisy of Sound Bites.

Since the start of the Bush Recession conservatives have yammered away at "those" poor people taking up space without paying more into the system.  With what, one might ask?  Wages have been suppressed for the last 30 years.  When you cannot find work there is only the safety net (public and private) to keep you above water until things turn around.

While the economy is getting better the Teapublicans have voted consistently to eviscerate the safety net.  This will cost us all for years to come... even if we fix it soon.

Is it time to protest the acts of these haters, these short sighted ignoramuses?  Yes, I think it is time to push back on the streets and the ballot box.  Without that these takers, the 1%, will continue to load their wagons with our goods and then horde as much as they can in off shore accounts.
