    No...I think that's how people that aren't assholes look at it.

    I'm not complaining about my tax dollars feeding children. Why are you?

    Better than spending over a trillion dollars on a foreign, occupation war.

    I don't know why they can't and frankly I don't really care as I'm not going to punish kids for it.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    In Los Angeles, they also provide dinners as well as year round meals. IMO this illustrates the Liberal/Progressive effort to turn parents into breading stock supplying future dependents of the state.

    It used to be that even among the poorest families, they were still able to provide meals for their children. That is a commitment the state feels they should no longer trust to the carbon based units they tolerate as suppliers to their system.

    Does seeing children fed really bother you that much? I believe you have a despicable position and it shows in your lack of compassion toward the less fortunate in our society. In some ways I actually pity you.

    Weird you take that view. I think it shows people's outlook on life in how the view something that is normally considered straightforward.

    I take the view that it's an investment in the future ensuring no kid lacks the proper nutrition during one of the most important times in the development of their brains and cognitive abilities.
