Let them Eat Rice and Beans

I understand Americans have a festival dedicated to eating food tomorrow. But spare a thought for those on food stamps.

Fox News Certainly hasn’t. Apparently, Andrea Tantaros thinks the food stamps would make a great diet for people to go on. In that vein, I should sell untreated water as a great way to lose weight through amoebiasis.

That being said? At least she isn’t Sean Hannity whose “Poor People Should Eat Rice and Beans” stance has a rather unfortunate “Antoinettey” feel to it (Sean Hanntoinette?).

Qu’ils mangent de la brioche… That ended rather well.

    I’ll go one further than Hannity: EVERYBODY should eat rice and beans. You’ll be healthier, and you can donate the money you save to charity. And of course mass production of meat is a leading cause of climate change, and causes horrific animal suffering.

    New Orleans style red beans and rice is pretty good. I think Good Eats says it’s a complete protein. But people need variety.

    But dysomniak, beans taste terribly, and feel gross in my mouth.

    Beans are a suitable Thanksgiving food, having been domesticated in the Americas, but what’s with rice? That’s an Asian cereal. For Thanksgiving it’s corn and corn-meal.

    Seems like Andrea hasn’t taken a realistic look at the food stamp program or it’s recipients. It doesn’t pay enough to buy healthy foods, most people wind up buying cheap and low-quality foods. In addition to that the people who are on it are working a lot and don’t have time for the exercise and food prep that keeps you fit. (As in cutting veggies and cooking low-cal meals rather than hamburgers and fries.) Ignorance is bliss for people like Andrea I’m sure.

    There is no evidence that Marie Antoinette ever said Qu’ils mangent de la brioche: the line comes from Rousseau who attributed it to an unnamed “great princess” long before Marie Antoinette became queen.

    Unfortunately, rice paddies produce considerable amounts of methane – although not as much as cows and sheep.
