Adding insult to insanity

July 26, 2012
The Daily News

EDITOR:There are many definitions of insanity. One that is not discussed openly in our political roundtable discussions is this: two men or women each have children of their own. Both sets of children are hungry.

One of the two men or women allow their own children to go hungry and give money to the other man or woman to buy food for their kids, while the person who gave the money away allows their own to want. Then, to add insult to insanity, the person who is given the money for food for their children keeps the money for themselves and deposits it into a foreign bank account.

Without exaggeration I just described a part of our country's foreign policy. It's not just the current president; it's been going on for decades.

Statistics were just released that our poverty level is the worse it has been since 1965. More than one in 5 children in this country now live below the poverty line. Who's fault is it?

Well that question can be debated over and over. I do know it is not the fault of the kids who are suffering. That much I can tell you for certain.
