Family walking on highway, five children. Started from Idabel, Oklahoma. Bound for Krebs, Oklahoma. Pittsburg County, Oklahoma. In 1936 the father farmed on thirds and fourths at Eagleton, McCurtain County, Oklahoma. Was taken sick with pneumonia and lost farm. Unable to get work on Work Prjects Administration and refused county relief in county of fifteen years residence because of temporary residence in another county after his illness. 1938 June. Dorothea Lange, photographer (Library of Congress)

The rich buying off lawmakers and amping up the Pig People to help them screw the middle class while blaming the poor is exactly how this country works. Without an ample supply of Conservative meatsticks to help the oligarchs bury their bodies and frame their patsies, we’d hardly ever get a decent war for oil, or secret prison system, or mass wiretapping program or casino-economy off the ground.
