Now a Blue Apron for the poor?

Can't even make it up:

Trump administration is proposing a major shakeup to the the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP): instead of giving low-income families food stamps every month, they would give them a box of nonperishable foods. White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said the proposal, included in the $4.4 trillion budget the president sent to Congress for approval Monday, will save billions and offer families a more nutritious option. According to Politico, he also described it as a "Blue Apron-type program"

Maybe Bezos or the Wal-Mart people are in there making proposals to do the whole thing and cheaper?  "save money!"?

A heads up to my American neighbors: "Soylent Green = People" ;)

Overheard the other day,

When a couple of Greeks were asked how could they leave a beautiful country such as Greece and move to Canada, a cold country, they replied, "Yes, it's cold in the winter but at least our bellies are full."
