I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
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.

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 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.

"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
