Senator Says Lining up to Buy Food a "Good Thing"

Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) boldly countered assertions that socialism would lead to food shortages, rationing, and long lines for those trying to get food by contending that "contrary to capitalist propaganda, making people stand in line to buy food is a good thing. Let's examine the facts."

"Can anyone rationally dispute the reality that in the United States a distressingly large proportion of the population is morbidly obese?" Sanders asked. "The ease with which food can be obtained is the main reason for this health crisis. If food were scarcer and more expensive people wouldn't be able to get fat. The amount of money each person would have under socialism would be low enough to force him or her to be more selective. The time-consuming procedure of requiring food seekers to wait in line would also tend to work against obesity. There just wouldn't be enough time in the day to stand in all the various lines for bread, meat, etc. for anyone to get all the food he or she wants even if they could afford it."

"The ancillary benefits of the queuing process would also contribute to a healthier population," the Senator added. "Standing is healthier than sitting. And since the majority of those in line would be outdoors they'd get more fresh air and sunshine. There' would also be more opportunities to chat with fellow citizens while waiting in line. This would combat the loneliness that currently plagues America where isolated individuals can drive to pick up fast food, take it home and watch TV alone. So, when we seriously look into the dynamics I think we can all agree that the food lines that have characterized socialist societies around the world are, on balance, a net plus for the human condition.".....

His line of useful idiots is long enough to cause concern and how outright stupid a large percentage of the population actually is.
