If my body didn’t require food, it’d be ridiculous how much money I’d save. A shitload. My goal is to sock away $1000 and never dip below that amount. And eventually as I keep working, this base minimum will change to $2000. Then $3000, et cetera. But having to eat costs more than it should. My stomach and my wallet keep getting into this nasty little tiffs. The government needs to create a system where they give each household in America free food. Each week they’d hand out a certain lump sum of nutritional goodies and it’d be up to you to ration it out for the entire 7 days. They’d hire workers to drive around in trucks as delivery men. And each worker would have their particular area to make deliveries to. And depending on how many family members you live with, you’d be given a percentage of food more or less. They would give you the most basic and easily mass producible foods of the 5 food groups. So a grain (probably just bread or pasta), a vegetable and a fruit (which could change each week), a meat, and a diary product like cheese or milk. They wouldn’t be handing out 5 star meals or anything extravagant. If you wanted better tasting, more expensive food the government wouldn’t help you with that. You’d have to either buy it yourself from a super market or go to a restaurant. And it’s not like they’d be dishing out an entire weeks worth of food to every single household in the US either. That would be asking way too much if it isn’t already. They’d give out enough food for a week if you eat very conservatively but you’d probably have to do some shopping on your own. I’m positive this is never going to happen since as of writing this we’re in over 15 trillion dollars worth of debt and rising (see: http://www.usdebtclock.org/). And this definitely would be an expensive project but it’s a great idea! My bank account agrees with me.
