    Yeah, really.
    I don't have any children but if I did, I'd make sure that they have FOOD, A GOOD ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS AND MY LOVE. I don't need the government to provide anything for my kids because I wouldn't consider myself a man. Why?? because I was raised to be this way and I always back up my talk.
    Catch me if you can.

    Alright, jmac and the rest of you who oppose S.3307 (with or w/o the amendment), let me ask you this...

    Since you believe the public school nutrition program is another aspect of "big government bloat", what has a Republican government done since Reagan to change the program and make it better? Go back to the "No Lunch Left Behind" article, review it, then do your own research and show where there have been sweeping changes within the program under a Republican administration or a Republican Congress where the problem you all see currently have every been addressed to your satisfaction beyond merely terminating same entirely because that would be unacceptable in my view. Not every student who hails from a low-income household have parents who don't work hard everyday trying to provide better for their children. Sometimes, being a waitress or a mechanic is the best they can do. But that doesn't mean these people are lazy, good-for-nothings.

    So, you tell us, what have Republicans done to solve this particular problem over the years? (And need I remind you, we've had 3 Republican presidents since 1980 with a cummulative 20 years in the White House compared to just one Democrat totalling 8 years (10 if you count Obama's 2-years).

    I have a friend on foodstamps. The amount varies with their wages. When people are at least working but the income is low, I don't think there should be anything like a time limit.
    It's probably non working single mom's who get the most food stamps. Since we have turned into a society where single mothers seem more common then married ones, I wouldn't be surprised.

    We had a pretty heated argument about this a few months ago. It was pretty much the lefties arguing for the right to buy tonic and other unhealthy drinks and foods with food stamps.

    Yeah, really.
    This bill is proposing MORE students for not just the breakfast and lunch programs but also dinner AND throughout the summer. Good lord...Lets just seize them...house them...feed them...clothe them...

    oh...wait...thats precisely what we are doing...sans the 'seize' part.

    When does it end? And how do we CONTINUE to sustain these endless social programs? Who pays for it? Wait...I have an idea...lets start there...All the people that believe this is a good idea...YOU pay for it. Voluntarily...out of your pocket...because its what you believe is the right thing to do.

    Prov. 19:17. He who is gracious to a poor man lends to the LORD, and He will repay him for his good deed.
    Where does it say we give the money first to the goverment and let them decide who is hungry? I don't see anything there about a middleman.

    Ya gotta love the mindset that thinks that allowing people to keep the money they have earned is somehow wrong. Thats the latest line on the tax breaks...that the republicans are 'TAKING' from the poor and GIVING to the rich. Good Lord...just...wow.

    This legislation is not unlike the unemployment proposals. Costs about the same, continues to extend the 'benefits' (handouts) indefinitely, requires no cuts to pay for thyem which ensures the government will dig the hole deeper and deeper. It grows the government, increases dependency...YEP...thats a recipe for success...

    And why won't it see the lunch tray. Explain.
    Conservatives give much more than liberals. Of course you're likely to find the exception to the rule.
