    You claimed they are going to be "eliminated", yes?

    "So you support the state eliminating parents?" This is what you said. Don't say it if you don't mean it.

    "For the first time in the history of the school lunch program, all children in Baltimore are created equal.

    Beginning this week, every student in the city, regardless of income level, is being offered free breakfast and lunch under a federal program that allows school districts to eliminate a decades-old meal-subsidy structure for students in high-poverty schools."


    +++

    This is the proper way to provide a social benefit.

    Means tested benefits are inherently unfair, unproductive, rife with fraud and highly divisive - provide it for all, or for none.

    The same with healthcare, et al ....

    Food, especially mass produced breakfast food, like oatmeal with raisins, just isn't that expensive.

    Freak'in Bean Counters ( accountants ) salaries are expensive.

    It is probably cheaper to give out free food to anyone child who is hungry, than it is to start a program to determine who needs it, and who just wants it.

    Additionally, by making the experience free for all, it takes the onus off of the child who is so poor, that they don't have food, and makes an experience of commendatory between the truly needy and those whose parent have it more together. This encourages the poor kids to accept the meals, rather than be shamed away from them.

    I'd 10 X rather we (our Government ) spend a bit more to give free food to any hungry child, than set up yet another program with gives out special benefits based on RACE.

    My Daughters received notifications of my grand children's notification of the school's Race Classifiers having determined that they have been designated as "White", even though their mothers are half Hispanic. On digging into the details, we found out that the school would have had the kids designated as "Hispanic" if they possibly could, because it would mean increased annual funding. Why?

    This is why the Government / State employs specific, non-local-school based Race Classifiers, to look at children who have on their forms, parents of mixed race, to make the determination of "Race". That way, none of those evil White appearing Hispanics can receive True-Hispanic only preferences, privileges and funding!

    Is that the kind of "Racial Means Testing" you'd prefer in Baltimore?

    Not yet anyway. They do however take the children away for about any cause they feel is necessary.

    Yeah, but that's not related to this topic. You can make claims that Child Services is exceptionally inept and aggressive, I'd likely agree. But schools providing meals for all its students doesn't quite fall under the level of the "state eliminating parents" as some would claim.

    It's the progressives taking over more of our lives at the tax payer expense. They love living under the control of government.

    How much money am I being forced to pay to blow up kids all over the Middle East? Feeding some of our own is one of the least harmful things our government has done.

    Geez. And if you support things like the Patriot Act and all this free reign surveillance against the People we run under the guise of fighting terrorism, then it's awfully ironic that you'd claim others love living under the control of government.

    It's on it's way of eliminating parents. This is just another step in the process of the ultimate goal. Government knows better than you.

    It's breakfast for kids at school. It doesn't control your life. You can still feed your kids all the cocoa puffs you like.
