    How much food, boo? do tell.

    Do you think that 501(c) orgs. should be getting this money?

    What would be the objection? Is there something inherently wrong with nonprofit organizations?

    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.

    Yes, I saw your answer. I almost mentioned to j that someone already said yes. I don't agree, but I'm sure we'll get to that later.

    dude, 25 years ago when I was in college I got food stamps. I had a wife and two kids and we got over $300/month in food stamps. I have never eaten better in my freakin life.

    as for the mandating healthy food bit....that's where personal responsibility comes in. If some parents are too lazy, busy, stupid, don't give a ****, whatever to make sure their kids eat healthy...that is THEIR ****ing fault and THEIR ****ing problem. Don't take more money out of my pocket (money I could use to provide more healthy food for MY kids) to feed their damn kids.

    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.

    We got food stamps when I was a kid, and didn't. So, maybe our experiences are simply different. But, how would you think they should eat?

    And if the money is not there's, shold the choice be?

    How much did you get, and how many were you supposed to feed. Perhaps it was poor planning on your families part.

    I am pretty sure that Media Matters doesn't have the slightest care about school nutrition beyond how they can get at that money.

    i'm willing to bet that 300 dollars in foodstamps went a bit further then than it does now...
