    Some people might classify me as rich, yet I feed my family of 6 for $500 a month. We eat well. This doesn't count going out to eat, but even that is rare these days. My fiancee's sister is on food stampe, two kids, and she gets $500 a month in NY state, so, I don't see how one on food stamps can't afford to send their children to school with a bag lunch?

    When the ones that think this is socialist or unconstitutional or some other horse **** like Moses brought the constitution and US laws down from Mt. Sinai, take a moment and do this for me:

    Think about why you disagree with having a bill that helps pay for school lunches and then say out loud, "I think this bill is socialist and bad for kids." If WHILE you are saying this it sounds like you are trying to get the taste of **** out of your mouth then you probably are an asshole.
    John we already have school lunch programs. Did you read the bill? There's a lot more in there than free lunches.

    If the bill was fine w/o the amendment, it should have been fine in it's original form "AS-IS" to send to the President for signature.

    Doood...other than the continued beating of the bleading heart drum...do you REALLY think this legislation should be passed? I mean...at first...whgen it was just a headline followed by a biased article..I can see people doing the kneejerk "but its for the chiiiiiiillllddddrrren thing"...but now that some actual details are out...details about the ridiculous excesses and government spending...seriously...would YOU endorse and pass this bill? Knowing our government and the excesses that have put us this deep in debt...do you still endorse it?

    (and you know...conservatives...you meet one...youve met us all...)

    Wow. OK...Ya know...I KNOW people struggle. Believe me...I know. So...now we feed 20 million plus children year round, even when they are not in school (ignoring the fact those children's needs have ALREADY been paid for by other social service funding programs). What next? Their home life sucks. Do we take them from their homes for their own good? Do we clothe them as well? And why stop with those 20 million...lots of older folks are homeless and dont have resources...lets feed them too. And house them. And provide for their needs. Indefinitely.

    THAT will sove ALL the problems.

    Yay. I'm so glad we're so serious about cutting the debt and deficit with such great things like a federal employee wage freeze and trying to raise the taxes of the top 2%.

    Wait? What's that you say? While simultaneously doing things to "save" money they're also pushing for billions and billions of additional spending?

    My god, who EVER could've predicted that

So, as I've said to others who would rather repeat the same stall rhetoric and talking points, pick up the needle on that old 45 and move it to a new position. Your "get your hands outta my pockets" banter is getting old.
    What the government removes from the economy is a direct assault on everyone's income unless, of course, the government decides that they won't spend responsibly, will continue to borrow, and will just open up the printing presses and churn out more dollars that way.

    Many see the latter as the likely scenario which is why the price of gold continues to move up. You may support BHO and his like minded democrats because of your belief system but those who create jobs and wealth use different criteria, and that involves the real world. Giving the government whatever they ask for, with no serious questions being raised, is a form of lunacy.

Of course...that they create them...manipulate them...use them for political power...keep them dependent...thats MUCH more caring. That the government already provides funding for those families to feed their children...no worries. That they provide money to take care of foster children (all of which are now included in the full meal deal program)...immaterial. That the federal government creates endless social programs and continue to dig us deeper in debt...that doesnt matter...and certainly not to people that wont be responsbile for paying off that debt...

    Evil I tell you...heartless.

    The irony...there is a reason this evil, heartless conservative bastard has just had to get dressed and is about to leave my home in the dead of night...
    here is the republican 'starve the beast' policy, incarnate
    we can either give tax breaks to billionaire$ or we can instead use that otherwise available revenue to provide nourishment to CHILDREN
    and the reich wing - aka the republican party - makes its choice
    starve the children so that billionaire$ do not have to pay a reasonable tax rate

    notice further that this post reveals - however snarkily presented - how that element of the political spectrum reveals the victims - the CHILDREN - to actually be the perpetrators:
    ... its the federal governments job to takle care of every poor crippled and dependent pet that they have created. ...
    notice how it is the CHILDREN'S fault that they are in need of sustenance

    and the forum member would have us believe that these CHILDREN, being responsible for their plight, are not deserving of a government solution to their hunger problem

    Evil I tell you...heartless.
    yes, that
    and
    disgusting, actually

    And it's not even a "federal" employment pay-freeze.
    It's a "civilian-federal" employment pay-freeze.

    All the elected and appointed individuals within branches of government are unaffected - that means congress, the judicial branch, and all their many cabinets and committee members.

    So who get's a pay freeze? The little guys that run the papers around, answer phones, check badges (like those stationed on post at the gateway), and take messages.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    yes, that
    and
    disgusting, actually
    there are only 432 billionaires

    why do you constantly spew your envy and hate of the uber rich when your masters' want to screw over everyone in the top 2%

    why do you think someone making 250K a year or a retired person whose only income is now his investment income ought to face tax hikes. If you make 200K a year on dividends your tax is going to DOUBLE. but that is ok to you because you figures it will "help the poor"

    as long as you dems and socialists think that the taxpayers have a duty to fund fund and fund some more every act of irresponsible breeding on the grounds not doing so will "hurt the children" the creeping crud of socialism will continue
