    So I guess you are left with inane personal attacks. Brilliant.

    And this children, is a perfect example of a non-sequitur. There is absolutely no reason for kids to expect anything forever once they grow up to be adults. However, blind Libertarianism says they will without a gram of evidence to back up such an assertion.

    No - if I was a democrat in heart I'd be on reduced or free *right now* - via lies or some sort of bizarre marital arrangement. . . .instead of spending thousands out of pocket every year just on school lunches.

    Schools are funded by more than just property taxes. You asked that people debate honestly. I suggest you start doing the same.

    This is very ambitious and costly I'm sure.

    This must be a rich school districe in a City that is dirt poor and falling into what looks like a City that was bombed.

    Note the gleaming City beyond the slum. This is what they want people to see, not the third world ghetto that is the real Detroit. So where are they getting the tax money for such a program. Don't get me wrong, I do not appose this program. I just wonder where they are getting the funds.

    Not all of those living in poverty in Detroit live in cardboard boxes. A little hyperbolic and dishonest to imply such.

    Not at all, if you look at Detroit as a whole the houses for the poor is expanding, and if was not they wouldn't be doing this.

    With a poverty rate of 32.5%, Detroit is easily the poorest city in America.

    How about we pay nothing and tell the kids to quit acting like sissies? Who the **** cares if one kid uses their mommy's money to pay for their breakfast and lunch and the other kid gets theirs for free or uses their mommy's money to pay for reduce prices. the only this does is cost the tax payers money and and encourage society to cater to pussies. There are worse things in the world than eating free meals at school, There are kids all over the ****en world that would love to have free breakfast and lunch.Those little starving Ethiopian kids you see on those feed the children commercials would love a free breakfast and lunch so would those kids in Somalia and other dirt poor 3rd world countries. These kids in the US whining and having self esteem issues over eating free lunch are nothing but spoiled brats whining over nothing.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
