Food banks are a self-fulfilling prophecy. Politicians can't say no to such proposals due to the political negativity that would result, essentially it is extortion. When I hear recent stories of food bank executives making from $75,000 a year on up to $100,000 a year I lose my appetite quickly - yet my taxes will be taken with little recourse. A new dictator every four years is still a dictator. It seems to me that far too many socialist programs are about their operators, not their clients.
