(Lack of) Food for Thought

While we're inherently skeptical of research involving vague metrics like "food hardship", we thought it was worth noting the release of this study from the Food Research and Action Center. The verdict for California? One in five residents surveyed reported not being able to afford enough food in the past year, with the highest such proportions found (unsurprisingly) in the Fresno area and the Inland Empire.

We're sure this has absolutely nothing to do with the state's overbearing environmental regulations and taxes, and their predictable effects on the ability of private businesses to operate successfully here. Just as we're sure it has nothing to do with the Federal Reserve's frantic efforts to destroy the American dollar.

Something to think about any time you're tempted to believe that politicians are better able to run your life than you are.
