'Lord, when did we see you hungry...?"

Can we please stop pretending that these Republicans have any acquaintance with Christianity? This:
It’s official: Congress will slash food stamp funding in the midst of a deep economic recession, when more people rely on food stamps than ever before. 
Monday night, the Senate passed a five-year farm bill that contained $4.1 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) over ten years. This ensures that the only debate now will be about how much to cut—and it’s likely to result in cuts much deeper than $4.1 billion.
But hey corporate farms need their subsidies. So what if families go to bed hungry?  They are just takers....

Makes me sick.

We are so much better than those Republicans. They pretend people are going to help the poor out of the goodness of their hearts. We know the only way to help the poor is to tax people who have more money than we have. But we'll have the last laugh when all those Republicans are in hell and we're in heaven with the Democrats.

Poe or No?

Assuming "." is writing sincerely, you should know that neither atheist IT, nor universalist Yours Truly, believes in hell. Let's get that out of the way, before we debate the more hyperbolic aspects of your comment. [Unless "." is just Poe-snarking, in which case Buh-bye!]
