    Choosing which child lives, and which child dies...
    :eusa_eh:
    For some, famine means picking which child dies
    August 11, 2011 - Wardo Mohamud Yusuf walked for two weeks with one child on her back when her 4-year-old son collapsed at her side.

    Millions Impacted by Drought in Northern Kenya
    August 11, 2011 - The ongoing drought in northern Kenya has put millions of people in need of immediate food assistance. Many children are at risk of facing the devastating effects of severe malnutrition. But the effects of acute water shortages on families are even more far reaching. They include lifestyle changes in communities experiencing water shortages.

    40% of U.S. corn acres are devoted to producing ethanol. Unneeded and unwanted, save for the agriculture industry. They make so much ethanol that 20% of it is exported.

    Our nation's farmers are starving the world in the name of profits. In the process they pollute our groundwater, air, rivers, and streams. And still we hand them billions of dollars of cash year after year.

    It's time we called out these fuckers and name them for who they are. Usurpers and rapers of economy and environment.

    my heart breaks what do we do

    cash goes to mercenaries

    every time you hear someone say send money we know how to distribute it, its a lie. I'll just keep backing my MCC but oh my my heart breaks when I see these children.

    Oh and someone tells you they've got issues because of the sequester? Smack them up side the head and ask them if they have eaten their gruel today.
