Dramatic images from South Florida on Monday show a long line of cars backed up bumper to bumper on a roadway while motorists wait hours to get food from a food bank.
A drone captured aerial shots of vehicles waiting in line in Sunrise, Florida, just northwest of Fort Lauderdale, on Monday. The motorists were waiting to receive food from Feeding South Florida, a food bank that relies on donations to feed the poor. Feeding South Florida has seen a 600% increase in the number of people asking for food as millions have been laid off due to the coronavirus outbreak. Check out the video drone footage here:
Sorry, but the Right Wire Report got triggered on this story. Now we realize that the Coronavirus is real and presents numerous challenges both from a health and economic perspective. The crisis has been going on for only just a few weeks. And now Americans are lining up in food lines? Seriously?
Take a look at the feature image. See that nice shinny yellow Camero with the black racing strips? Take a look at some of the other vehicles … there are some nice SUVs in line. And yet they need food? Now Right Wire Report has its contacts in Southern Florida, we run a daily chat room and get information on the ground across America. There is no reason that people can not get to the store to buy food – the Coronavirus lockdowns are not that draconian.
Furthermore, we understand some may have lost their job – but with a few week’s loss of income, and Americans are in food lines? It is a simple case of poor management of their financial resources. These people do have resources, we can see this with the cars they are driving, they are not destitute. Spawning the question, whether these people are taking resources from others in true need. For sure there may be some exceptions – but a massive line to get free food?
This story is a sad commentary on the state of the American mindset. Our society has been marinated in big government socialism – ready to stick our hands out for any freebies one can get. One should be more self-reliant – have basic food stocks and three month’s financial stability – before you buy your fancy car. This story goes into the WTF folder.
