This is one of those things that make you think: real or satire? I’ve checked around, and everything I come up with seems to point to the fact that this ad really is a product of the federal government. If anyone finds anything different, let me know. This isn’t just a promotion of the welfare state; in fact, it is much more. It is an endorsement of the federal government’s grain-laden food pyramid, as well as the corporate state, corn-and-sugar, processed-food empire. Because no one on food stamps buys quality food. In fact, the food those folks tend toward buying is the cheapest, most processed, sugar-laden, economy food available on the market. But, according to this commercial, the welfare-and-food stamp set all look spectacular! Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.
When folks talk about the federalista food pyramid as vs. what they should really be eating, I always tell them, with the exception of the water and “sweets,” to print a large food pyramid and hang it upside down, and use this as a starter guide along the path to healthy and unpoliticized eating.
