    Finally, someone within the Republican party took the blinders off and saw things for what they truly are. My hat goes off to you, jamesrage.

    (Sorry...I know I said I'd hold off on my response, but once I notied that a Conservative made the connection, there really was no reason to delay.)
    I recognize it as a tactic and nothing more. I do not mind republicans opposing the bill. I just think it is foolish to try to make it appear as though it is just democrats being opposed to doing back ground checks as for why the bill would fail, of course this probably just the republicans paying the democrats back for trying to make them look like monsters who hate children for opposing the bill.
    "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"

    Because that's the Liberal Democrat's idea of trying to solve any kind of problem. Spending replaces the idea of being creative or using their brains. Wait... what brains??? they don't have any.

    Not sure it is. But I'm not sure I would leave children to suffer for their parent's failings.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's a bad thing if you are a liberal. Liberals as you know want everything free from the government and as much help as possible so they can sit on their arses and do nothing but sponging off the government.

    You must be a liberal to speak for them so much.

    if "the state" is going to pay to feed, clothe, house and educate these kids because their parents won't/can't....what's the freaking point of having parents anyway? that's why the foster care system is bursting at the seams. dirtbag POS parents pumping out kids that they have no intention or capacity to care for.

    The legislation would give the government the power to decide what kinds of foods could be sold and what ingredients may be limited in school lunch lines and vending machines.
    These decisions need to stay with the local schools not be allowed to be dictated by by the Nanny State.

    The bill would provide money to serve more than 20 million additional after-school meals annually to children in all 50 states. Many of those children now only receive after-school snacks.
    After school? Why don't we round them up and put them in dormitories and make sure they are taught that they have to depend on Big Brother for everything in life and the Democrats will provide it.

    Don't you dare tell them that it's part of the Democrat plan to keep minorities down by keeping them dependent on other peoples money stolen through Socialism/Marxism redistribution of wealth.

    We have to stop the spending of money that is not there.

    Our problems are based on over spending by an out of control government controlled by Liberals and just plain idiots.
