KDKA AM in Pittsburgh has had a government is your daddy government employee on for the last two days extolling the role of government in dealing with disasters. Near the end, she was laying the foundation for claiming disability due to PTSD from this storm.
At one point she asked the hopelessly “Born Democrat” host – if it wasn’t for Meals on Wheels, how would our seniors have something to eat?
I would like to answer her question:
– go into you kitchen and open a jar of peanut butter
– call your children on your Obamaphone
– call people from your church
– call people from other churches
– tell your friends you need help
– talk with your neighbors
– domino pizza delivers
– pea pod grocery delivery
Back in the late 1970s, my mother decided she wanted to volunteer with Meals on Wheels. It lasted about a week. One story I remember was they delivered to a man and started talking. He volunteered that the food was inedible and he fed it to his dog. The reason he signed up was just to have someone to come by and talk with him.
