    BUT

    The poverty rate rose quite a bit last year apparently...so yup...poverty is getting worse in America.

    The unions are at fault for ruining America.

    There are unions that are still demanding outrageous wages. They have given us no choice but to send American jobs overseas.

    Get your facts straight. French Fries are not a vegetable. The catsup poured on top of the fries is a vegetable.

    Come on man- don't play stupid. Virtually all children in school are taught basic nutrition. As for what the school cafeterias are serving for lunch, I don't give a ****. That's not what this discussion is about, and if people are too stupid to figure out how to eat for their health, then let them be fat. It still doesn't mean anything as pertains to the discussion, which was about poverty. If our poor are fat, they are getting too much to eat.

    Traditionally, the primary promotion of nutrition among school-aged children has been through the government regulated child nutrition programs such as the National School Lunch Progra. These programs do not mandate nutrition education in schools; their role is to provide financial support and nutrition standards for meals served.

    Poor people obviously can not afford gym memberships, personal trainers, many do not have health care, they cant afford to buy local fresh food, many work long hours and sometimes even two jobs so cooking food at home is not always an option.

    "If our poor are fat, they are getting too much to eat. " Or they arnt getting to eat enough of the good stuff!

    Just to understand your point would eating too much of the 'good stuff' make people fat?
