    I've given up hoping starvation will end around the world and starting concentrating on hoping it won't grow here. Our government and our people seem to be set on seeing the poor starve to death. I can't believe our governor, among other things, just stopped hospice for the poor. Seems they can't die off fast enough for her.

    How can the richest country in the world not have enough money to provide food for it's people? Medical care? etc. Seems all Obama's promises were empty.

    I kind of hope the evil greedy blanks that run this country get their comeuppance sooner rather than latter. We've tried voting them out, we've tried demonstrations...what's left?

    This is the glory of socialism. Misery, starvation, and a morally dead aristocracy.

    If you are broke in South Korea, it is no picnic then either. South Korean media are quite direct about the level of pain the destitute face there.

    But this level of crass and stupid is only achievable with communism. From Ethiopia in the 80's, modern Cuba, Russia in repeated periods in the 1920's 1930's and again in the 1950's, China during the "Great Leap Forward..." As Marx said, History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. This is a particularly gruesome kind of face here.

    Of course our blocking trade with NK has nothing to do with their problems at all.

    Same story as Cuba. We don't deal with jerks like that. (We have jerks we will deal with who are no teddy bear's picnic either, but we don't deal with these particular two) But the rest of the world does deal with them with no problem at all, except the Norks don't pay their bills and ship shoddy merchandise that doesn't meet customer specs. We don't block the rest of the world's trade, as much as we want to.

    Hospice doesn't do anything to keep people from dying, sheila. And we do provide food for our people, as well as medical care.

    Nobody ever starved before tyrants began masquerading as communists?

    Also, make up your mind: Is it socialism like America or communism like Twin Oaks?

    Or maybe we could focus on reality instead of trying to turn everything into sad political hackery?

    Famines were common in the days before Republican government. There were laws to artificially depress the prices of food, prevent folks from selling stuff for the best price they could get, And there was just the fact that moving bulky stuff from point A to point B was hard due to no roads and bandits where there were roads.
    But this kind of thing in the 20th Century has been exclusively the results of deliberate policy by Socialist states.

    As long as the current regime in North Korea is in power the people will keep starving there.
