    The chubby poor!

    As this clip is most anti obama, I applaud it.

    I was once one of America's youngest poor, as were my 6 siblings. And that was well before the plethora of social programs that are available today.
    It's hell. It's miserable, depressing, and oppressing.
    But it's survivable.

    NO, it doesn't. You should send that child money for meals.

    The child is the video isn't starving and appears to be, if anything, a bit on the chubby side.

    It was the 60's and with 7 mouths to feed aged 3 to 17 yes it had to be like that.
    It's just the way it was.

    BTW you can still send me money if you like. :D
