Moron Snail Mail

More propaganda. The question is whether it's from the letter writer, or from the guy who picks which drooling correspondence to print. From today's batch:

The Senate has plans to cut $574 million from the Food Stamp Program this week. It is also set to pass a $70 billion tax cut for the wealthiest Americans. Get involved, people!

M^RY @M3$, EDINA.

SHE'S RIGHT! WE MUST ALL DO SOMETHING! WRITE YOUR SENATORS!!! DRAW UP SIGNS!!!!! APPLY BUMPER STICKERS!!!! AND -

Hang on a sec -

Oh. Never mind:

WASHINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - The federal food stamp program for poor Americans is no longer targeted for cuts under a revised plan to reduce Agriculture Department spending, the head of the Senate Agriculture Committee said on Tuesday after key senators from both parties objected to the proposed cuts.

It's a good thing to "get involved" - whatever that means to any given individual. But it also helps to pay attention, rather than flying off the handle and making a bunch of noise about some percieved injustice, and then immediately re-inserting your head back into your sphincter.
