America is Very Much Like Nazi Germany

“I mean, [our society is] very much like Nazi Germany.  And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe.” —  Ben Carson, 14 March 2014


Poor Parents Starve Their Kids Because They Don’t Love Them

“The left is making a big mistake here. What they’re offering people is a full stomach and an empty soul. The American people want more than that.  This reminds me of a story I heard from Eloise Anderson. She serves in the cabinet of my buddy, Governor Scott Walker. She once met a young boy from a very poor family, and every day at school, he would get a free lunch from a government program. He told Eloise he didn’t want a free lunch. He wanted his own lunch, one in a brown-paper bag just like the other kids. He wanted one, he said, because he knew a kid with a brown-paper bag had someone who cared for him. This is what the left does not understand.” — Paul Ryan, 6 March 2014

Incidentally, this entire story seemed to be lifted, with key points altered, from a book written by a child hunger activist who actively fights to connect kids with federal programs such as food stamps and school lunches.
