Let Them Eat Pencil Shavings

Aldona Wos with The Guv
We have abundant evidence of how Pat McCrory and his top people feel about the poor in North Carolina. Deny them Medicaid assistance, cut off their unemployment, call them "morons" if they show up in Raleigh to protest, discourage their participation at the polls. It gets worse...

Also starve them.

The Department of Health and Human Services, ruled over by Duchess Aldona Wos, is supposed to help families in great need obtain food stamps. Instead, the department has dragged its feet, fumbled the ball, shown a callousness that passeth understanding, and now, as of Dec. 31, some 30,000 NC families had waited more than a month for food stamps. That figure represented a 10,000 jump in supplicant hunger, from numbers released in mid-November. Over 9,000 families have waited three months or more for relief.

The situation is so bad that the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which supplies most of the funding for the food stamp program, is threatening to end North Carolina's share of the money because of Aldona Wos's failure to deliver.

Wos and McCrory blame computer programs. They blame former Governor Bev Perdue. They blame every Democrat who every walked the earth. We blame their failure to give a good goddamn what happens to the poor and hungry.

Their attitude toward people stupid enough not to be as rich as they are is as plain as the maid in Aldona Wos's kitchen.
