I find this disturbing in many ways, and upsetting.
But a serious candidate for governor and current lieutenant governor has made comments that reveal how far we have to go in our quest to understanding poverty:
He made these comments recently:
"My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals," Bauer told a Greenville-area crowd. "You know why? Because they breed.
"You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that. And so what you've got to do is you've got to curtail that type of behavior. They don't know any better."
