Get your own damn breadline

In a piece yesterday at Daily Kos on potential cuts to Food Stamp programs, this photo was posted with the caption "The U.S. Congress Sees Nothing Wrong With This Picture." Well, they may not, but I do. It's a picture of the Yonge Street Mission in Toronto, which started its work helping the needy in 1896. Toronto, as you may know, is not in the United States, and while Canada has its own problems with poverty, I don't expect the U.S. Congress to be all that worried about them.
