They're all around you, she explains, everywhere. You just don't know it because you are ignorant of real hunger because, she implies, you have so much and she has so little.
From the AdCouncil, here's an example:
Hunger is a reality for 1 in 6 Americans, including millions of children, seniors and working families.However, even with the recent economic downturn, many people still separate themselves from the domestic hunger issue with inaccurate stereotypes. In fact, those who are struggling with hunger are just like us. They live in our communities; they work; they have families; they share many of the same interests and values that we do. They're doing everything possible to change their situations-doing everything you would do if you stepped into their shoes.Where does the Ad Council get its funding?
A. Each Ad Council campaign is sponsored by a national non-profit organization or a federal government agency. They provide the funding to produce and distribute the PSA campaign.From Feedingamerica.org, which sponsors the commercials:
Although the United States is the wealthiest nation in the world, millions of children in our nation are food insecure, meaning they are either currently hungry or nearing hunger. Children who are undernourished are at greater risk for serious health, social, and educational problems. Today, many public food-assistance programs and private organizations strive to meet the nutritional needs of vulnerable children, but more needs to be done to fight child hunger.Now we move to the Washington Examiner:
As President Obama crafts a reelection income equality message aimed at punishing the rich and rewarding the poor, his own government finds that the 46 million living below the so-called “poverty line” live and spend pretty much like everyone else.
Forget the image of Appalachia or rundown ghettos: A collection of federal household consumption surveys collected by pollster Scott Rasmussen finds that 74 percent of the poor own a car or truck, 70 percent have a VCR, 64 percent have a DVD, 63 percent have cable or satellite, 53 percent have a video game system, 50 percent have a computer, 30 percent have two or more cars and 23 percent use TiVo.In fact, The Heritage Foundation has been explaining this story for a long time. There's lots more over there.
Poor Americans, on average, live in larger houses or apartments than does the average, non-poor individual living in Sweden, France, Germany or the United Kingdom.Let's face it. What's being done here is the encouragement of class warfare. Although Obama's policies are bankrupting people, this administration is encouraging class resentment.
The media cry with alarm that “nearly one in four kids” in the nation are hungry. Again, government data show otherwise. Fully 96 percent of poor parents stated that their children were never hungry at any time during 2009, despite the severity of the recession, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
You can have a Playstation and a big screen tv but you're supposed to resent the guy whose house is bigger than yours.
How do we know this?
They're telling us.
From San Francisco, we learn that the Occupy movement, encouraged by Democrats and the President, is founded in, encourages and nurtures the very feelings required to start an internecine war. SF Gate:
"Passionate, organized hatred is the element missing in all that we do to try to change the world," said Ortiz, a retired professor from Cal State East Bay. "Now is the time to spread hate, hatred for the rich."
