    Your strong opposition to the situation says otherwise. And I never said you had "fortune", just maybe you had a better opportunity than some to excel, to move yourself forward when others may not. However, I don't disagree that there are some out there who will sit back and mooch off the system and then be angry with their subsidy is cut off. Those folks I can care less about.

    Any able bodied non retard has exactly the same opportunity that I had.
    True to a degree...

    Minorities have more because there are special minority programs they qualify for that I didn't.
    Very true.

    I have never advocated not helping those who are UNABLE to help themself.
    Again, your strong stand against this legislation overall indicates otherwise. Nonetheless, if I've misjudged or misunderstood your position, let me be the first to apologize. While I don't agree with the bill entirely, there are some aspects of it I think are worthwhile.

    which is exactly why it shoudn't be passed. why pass a crappy POS bill because there may be a few aspects that are worthwhile?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    That's not material. In reality the "wars" are Constitutional while the school lunches are not. So yes, we can pay for two "needless wars" but not to feed children.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    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.
    The government shouldn't be a substitute for a father or mother, and it shouldn't be paying bills except for those incapable of operating in society; the handicapped.

    Where will it all end? We're seeing right now. Trillions of debt that would have been better left in the hands of people to make decisions about their own life.

    The Libs think the Constitution is merely a document of suggestions, to be fully ignored unless it serves their purposes... which is rarely.

    Re: Republicans block child nutrition bill

    It's kinda ridiculous to spend a billion or more putting more veggies on a kid's plate at school when they don't eat them in the first place. The majority of kids I see at lunch (I'm a teacher) do not eat peas, carrots (unless they have ranch dressing with them), broccoli, etc. They'll just wait until they get home a couple hours later and eat some Cheetos.

    It's a waste of money.

    So then you are failing to teach children about the benefits of healthy eating habits then?

    You can tell a kid until you're blue in the face that they should eat broccoli instead of Doritos, but they're gonna eat the Doritos. Are you around kids at all?

    Like 99% of the people on here I believe I am an expert at every subject I am discussing, all I am saying is you could do better.

    Get back to me when you spend time around kids in a school cafeteria.
