But guilt is one of the Left’s favorite weapons! Before you lay out the gun control placemats and plan your Obamacare talking points for dinner Thursday, take a moment to think about how many food stamp meals your Thanksgiving feast could have purchased. That would be 35, by the way — if you assume Thanksgiving dinner costs $49.04, feeds one and provides no leftovers for future meals.
The average Thanksgiving dinner costs as much as 35 food stamp meals: http://t.co/ehiPFdnmqo

Feeling ashamed yet? No?
@RBPundit @ezraklein The average thanksgiving dinner cost is borne by the family that eats it.

Why are some people so bothered that others work hard, save and have actual intact families to celebrate with? @RBPundit @ezraklein

About those leftovers…
@ezraklein of course ten people can eat that dinner making it more like 3.5 SNAP meals which isn't bad since it fills you for whole day

And don’t forget about churches and charities; that’s easy to do sometimes when government runs so much of our lives.
@RBPundit @ezraklein I bet 3.5 million turkey dinners are given away this week by private charitable groups.

@ezraklein So I'm supposed to feel guilty for being able to provide my family with a decent meal? You suck at life.
