Wisconsin GOP Pushes Food Stamp Shellfish Ban

Oh, Good Grief, when & why did the GOP decide to impose kashruth on poor people?

Shrimp (mostly farmed) is an excellent and relatively inexpensive (why else would it be so common in dim sum, except that it tastes so good?) source of protein. I think those guys really need a class (conducted by Nuns with Rulers) in how not to be super-arrogant towards the people who elect them.

And yes, poor people sometimes abuse the Food Stamp Program. Its like the old Petty Cash Drawer Thing -- policing it carefully to prevent Abuse costs more than the abuse does. Because most people are reasonably honest. Even poor people Maybe even _especially_ poor people.

Now, if investigating those :Legislators for their donations from Big Business campaign contributions & resulting favorable laws were the matter of contention, I'd be much more Enthusiastic.
