Stunning budget contrast

I read the article about a national retailer making donations to food banks as part of its business practices. This, of course, is admirable. But then I had the thought that if so many people go hungry in this country, why are we giving $60 billion more to the Pentagon? We already have the strongest, best-funded military in the world. The Pentagon needs to use its money more wisely. It may not be government’s job to feed everyone but we need to keep people from starving. Government needs to provide a level playing field of opportunity for all.
