There never.....NEVER.....was any requirement for eating garbage. This is simply the sort of lie that you Leftists.....FDR boot-lickers......offer in place of truth. I repeat: there was never any starvation in America. Prior to Franklin Roosevelt, welfare was handled by charities and churches, carefully considering who got the relief, and the reasons for same. Under FDR, welfare and charity became a patronage endeavor, to get votes rather than to ease suffering. The Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC) doled out relief nationally to those states with the best political connections. The Emergency Relief and Construction Act of 1932 began with the best of intentions...but under the Democrats it went to well-connected friends, including mayors and governors. Illinois, a swing state, got $55,443,721, which was almost 20% of the RFC's $300 million, more than NY, California, and Texas combined. Murray Rothbard, "America's Great Depression," p.262-263.
