Headline should read lowest in five years. So sick of the bias. Most people only read the headlines and the opinion is formed there.
"The conservative Heritage Foundation called the report unreliable and exaggerated. It issued a statement saying it is implausible that the hunger rate could grow by double digits nearly every year for 20 years and cited Census Bureau (news - web sites) surveys showing a relatively small increase in the use of food banks since 1995."
The only truth in the article.
It's all President Bush's fault.
Judging from the waistlines I see in Walmart, hunger has increased 10-fold in the last 10 years.
A "perception" that only appears like the swallows at Capistrano, with the installment of a Republican President.
that only happens during a republican administration.
during a democrat administration the homeless disappear. (/s)
Last year's story and charts to show: Mayors' Claims of Growing Hunger Appear Wildly Exaggerated (and why).
Like usual: make a statement first, claiming that it's backed by scientific research, and confess later that the study uses a fuzzy math. The study's result is not important. The most important is that such study exists.
The report does not attempt to calculate raw numbers of homeless or hungry people. It is based on cities' reports on the number of requests for emergency shelter or food, as provided by shelters and food banks.
Well yes, there is a Republican in office, so it must be really bad, take a look back when Reagan and Bush 41 were in office and the horrible homeless report and how many were touted during the klintoon years?? Par for the course for the liberal press. Nobody listens or cares, because the reports are bogus, non-existant during demoncrapt presidency, horrible during a Republican Presicency?? NO BODY BELIEVES YOU ANY MORE LIBERAL MEDIA! Go find a soup kitchen, if you can.
Philip Mangano, the federal government's top administrator on homeless issues, said the concerns raised by the survey are valid, even if the numbers are a bit fuzzy.
Just like Dan Rather says... "Fake but accurate"
Homeless population increases, global warming getting near extremes, air pollution starting to affect the elderly, grandmas eating pet food, SUV's killing record numbers of innocents, AIDS on the increase.....
And all of this has happened since 2 November?
Break it down:
..."...Unemployment and underemployment are the leading causes of hunger, the report said, with high housing costs, medical costs, substance abuse and high utility costs also playing a role.
How many Homeless are receiving SSI or SSD or both SSD/SSI?
Plenty of MEDICAL coverage comes with all 3 of those options. Plenty of guarranteed monthly CASH benefits come with those options. Free Food Kitchen outlets and Food Stamps usually come with those options. People choosing to live in shelters, and in furnished rooms usually have low or no Utility Costs nor Rental fees.
What is left?---SUBSTANCE abuse costs--of course.. Those aren't free yet. Homeless people still have to work to purchase those necessities of life.
The AP is off on a jihad against anything the Bush
Administration is about.
Just tonight, look over the AP threads...It's like all the
bile and vitriol of the left had been dumped in one day.
The New York AP Editors must have gotten a new slough of
DNC faxes and are acting on every one.
Rush will have fun with this tomorrow.
Wonder how many illegal aliens these agencies are feeding? Of course, they could never be so rude as to ask about citizenship, but I'll bet subtracting that group would cut the over-all totals dramatically.
Ah yes. You know a Republican is about to be Inaugurated when the "homeless and hungry" Bloody Shirt is raised by the press. Next up is the " old people eating dog food" story. Film at 11.
