    If those liberals that are so up in arms about this horrible attrocity were truly as committed to 'the children' as you pretend to be...where the hell have you been PRIOR to the article? Cuz...I gotta be honest...I havent seen NARY a post or thread from ANY of you prior to this proclaiming the need for similar proposals and I DAMN sure havent seen the massive groundswell efforts to do it without the federal government.

    And I'd bet you STILL havent bothered to read what is actually IN the legislation...
    Actually, that's not true. There's a good number of bills being considered that have been blocked by republicans for awhile now. This is just one of them. Congress has been a stand still for sometime, not eve being able to agree on the simplist of legislation. It has been quite annoying.

    Some odd things in the bill..


    40 million for school gardens?


    mandatory funding for recognizing "exemplary breast feeding" practices?

    Maybe it has something to do with even the simplest of bills containing thousands of pages with surprises tucked in them?

    Not exaclty her point. Unemployment insurance helps more than being unemployed with no income.

    I didnt say ANYTHING about what congress has been considering...I stated the absolute fact that until Yahoo posted a biased article, none of you were clamoring to provide dinner and summer meals...for the sake of the children. You kneejerk responded...just like you were supposed to. You dont do it on your own...but you sure fall all over yourself whenever the federal government can grow bigger...for...'the children'...

    Not what she said.

    Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

    Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it gives recipients little incentive to work. By her reasoning, those checks are helping give somebody a job.

    "It injects demand into the economy," Pelosi said, arguing that when families have money to spend it keeps the economy churning. "It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name."

    Pelosi said the aid has the "double benefit" of helping those who lost their jobs and acting as a "job creator" on the side.

    All KINDS of BS in there. and BTW...it isnt enough to do what they claim it will do, which means once they establish the precedent of feeding the 'the children' dinner in addition to the school lunch and summer meals, then they will allocate another several billion. There are state and federal grants with no guidance on purpose, scope, results. Its typical leftist garbage.

    Don't mistake a lack of a thread for lack of knowledge or concern. As I said, because many bills have been held up, some most would consider easy to reach agreement on by reasonable people, there is more here to be upset about with both parties.

    And if you notice, I start very few threads. I merely listen and talk when I hear something I deem worth my responding to. You leap to far too many inaccurate conlusions.
