You reap what you sow

This post by Raskolnikov at Dust my Broom is a must read. Certainly one of the best blog posts I have read this year, if not ever.

There’s a lot of hang-wringing, tisking and head-shaking going on in the province this week after the news hit that Manitoba is one of the worst provinces in terms of children in poverty, food bank usage etc. While I certainly feel ashamed my home province has such a dubious distinction, I also feel rage and disgust that a province as socially-engineered and statist as Manitoba still has this problem despite the dumptrucks of money being spent on various programs to help welfare mothers and others in poverty.

As they say in Tennessee, read the whole thing.
