I am pretty certain 99.9% of the people posting here don't need good nutrition defined for them.
Someone mentioned the price of Mac & Cheese and Raman. The sodium content alone should scare people away from that. Not to mention very little if any nutritional value for a growing child.
The problem here is not about a lack of food, but nutritional food. I know from experiance nutrtious food is freaking exspencive.
My doctor put me on the South Beach Diet. Before that diet we spent about $400.00 a month to feed ourselves. After the diet started or food budget ballooned to almost double. I can't even imagine in this economy and being poor trying to feed a child a healthy diet.
More is at play here than just irresponsible parents. - Blackdog Post #103
Please feel free to point out where I made this statement that I am speaking for all poor people?

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
"Snow days mean less food for many students "
And yet we keep hearing people say there's no upside to global warming.
Global warming means less snow, and thus better fed kids.
Clearly the people opposed to global warming hate children.
It is from that up close and personal experience that I oppose ANY form of Federal welfare and would support us slowly, carefully and methodically easing out of all Federal entitlement programs in a way that does not create severe hardship for those we have made dependent on such programs. I support all public assistance being handled by the private sector or when it can be done intelligently and constructively by the states and local communities.
I am not saying that your mom deserved no help or that she should not have received it.
I am saying that it should never be an entitlement that creates dependencies that never should be encouraged or tolerated. The government should never be allowed to force one person to be responsible for another that he or she did not marry or who is not their own minor child.
"I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." --Benjamin Franklin 1776
Start whining about callous indifference when the callous socialists stop pointing their machine guns at hard working responsible citizens.
It might mean something then.
