grocery shopping for 795 million people on 37 cents a day?


How many people are hungry in the world?


Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth. The vast majority of the world’s hungry people live in developing countries, where 12.9 percent of the population is undernourished.

I read that today and cried.

What is spent on nuclear weapons?
As hundreds of millions of people across the globe go hungry, the nuclear-armed nations spend close to US$300 million a day on their nuclear forces.

I read that and laughed.

I know it’s unrealistic, even naive, to imagine spending that Thirty Seven cents a day on food to save 11% of the world, but I bet I could do it. You buy the large sizes you’d be amazed what you can save. Coupons, store membersips, points back if you use that “What’s in YOUR wallet card,” I mean, you buy rice by the hundred metric ton you’re down to 2 cents a serving. Beans, lentils, believe me, I’ve fantasized about this for years.

Get these people healthy, put ’em to work, make consumers out of them, a credit rating, ATM cards, the world economy would be booming.

Not a chance, damnit.
