Comment: Food is literally cheaper than dirt in the US (Score 1) 86

You can get a loaf of bread and a dozen eggs at Walmart for $2.50. A typical beggar could earn that in less than an hour of begging in front of the store. Here in the US, we have subsidized farms, put entire villages out of business, and monopolized entire agricultural sectors so that food can be extremely cheap. Even the poorest of the poor can afford a meal if they are willing to work or beg a little.

Furthermore, anything small enough to shop-lift is most likely not going to be nutritious.

As somebody who writes and performs music professionally, AND as an avid Ubuntu user, I would be hard pressed to find any competent recording engineer using Linux, simply for the fact that competent engineers want to RECORD, not compile device drivers and tweak kernel flags.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
