SESThat's ANOTHER thing.Fri Feb 11, 2011 8:04am220.127.116.11Talking about expenditures at grocery stores....
...there was an article in the local paper recently about neighborhoods in and around the city that have poor access to grocery stores.
The article talked about how people in those areas either have to drive "long distances" to get to grocery stores, or shop in more expensive convenience stores.
The gist of the [Liberal] article was that the government needed to do something to ensure that these neighborhoods had grocery stores.
As if grocery stores were anything other than businesses trying to make a profit.
Grocery stores don't GO into those areas because they can't make a profit. The crime alone probably makes the insurance prohibitive.
I guess Liberals think the purpose of grocery stores is to feed people. Go figure.
- Oh, you thought food stamps were about feeding the poor? PureStevil, Fri Feb 11 7:59amWell, they probably said they were, but really it's just a forced expenditure from the middle class to guarantee some income for grocery stores and restaurants.
