    more active people have more energy too, lets force everyone sucking on the govt tit to exercise daily, maybe by getting off their lazy asses and actually looking for a job instead of sitting around bitching about the evil GOP not wanting to extend unemployment bennies.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Kids need to work? There was a time we believed that, true. Many a ten year old put time in the minds once upon a time. Shoudl we go back to that?

    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.

    I'm more a feed the hungry kind of guy:

    Deut. 15:7. If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.

    Lev. 19:19ff. Now when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. Nor shall you glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the needy and for the stranger. I am the LORD your God.

    Prov. 19:17. He who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD, and He will repay him for his good deed.

    well, just as soon as the lord sees fit to give me some land and some fields and vineyards...I'll get right on that.

    we have two choices:


    we can either continue the system as it is now until we reach the tipping point and watch it collapse or we can make some hard, tough choices now. better that some people suffer now than all the people suffer later.

    And nowhere in any of that does it say it should be mandated by a wasteful governing body.

    Christians give charity by the boatloads. We're the last people you should be preaching to. But we know, of that $4 billion, 3/4 of it will never see a kids lunch tray. Otherwise, why with all the earmarks?

    That is just not true. This bill expands government in at least 17 different areas, plus allows 501(c)s to get money out of that 4.6 Billion. Why? Why would I want Media Matters involved in my kids lunch program? Why do I need to provide Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Summer food to these kids? Are there not programs already that cover this if the parents are so inept in their duties that they need all three meals provided plus get food stamps?

    The bill also increases the roles of kids that qualify for this program, how long before the government just dictates everything you do? ENOUGH!

    The school systems in this country are already a shining example of what liberal good intentions do when left to their own devices. Kids are dumber today in the public system than ever before, and it ain't because they had a cheese burger!
