Right now, there is a shortage of turkeys for those who don’t work. They’re showing up to get their free food, but it isn’t there.
“People are turning to charitable organizations for their Thanksgiving meal this year in record numbers, while donations have dropped significantly and funding has been slashed.
Charity organizers across the country say the lagging economy has forced individual donors to keep money to themselves, while businesses that usually donate are struggling to stay afloat.” —http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/11/25/thanksgiving.food/index.html?iref=24hours#cnnSTCText
What should the poor people do? Well, get a job. Obviously they’re lying around, or we wouldn’t have such an immigration issue.
Also note that CNN mentions businesses who usually donate. O.O
Wow! Businesses actually help people! I know. Hard to believe.
Greg Danner of Sioux City, Iowa was of the opinion that, “being a hobo is quite a profitable profession, for there are many plastic bottles all over the place,” and set out to prove this. So far, he has earned nearly 200 dollars by collecting bottles, and he plans to use the money he gets to build a treehouse for the hobos in his backyard.
So, a list of things to do if you show up for your free turkey only to find it has run away:
1) Get a job.
2) Collect bottles.
3) Vote for lower business taxes.
