    Those lazy 3rd and 4th graders should stop whining and get to cleaning if they expect to eat free food.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    Re: GOP Rep Suggests Kids Clean Schools In Exchange For Lunch

    So let me get this right....

    Supposedly kids with parents living in poverty don't understand the value of a dollar or that there's no free lunch...

    But apparently kids from wealthier background do?

    Well to hear the CON whine it is urban not suburban or rural. And I would remind you plenty of rural kids qualify for free lunches- should they sweep the floors as well???

    I can't say I have seen any study claiming child labor on farms leads to a strong work ethic or a shunning of any free hand-outs from the government. Plenty of unwed moms using the healthcare clinic in rural Oklahoma. Plenty of SNAP cards used in the local grocery store.

    So you can't just make blanket statements because of what you did.

    There is something wrong with teaching a child that because of his or her parent's financial situation, he/she gets to do manual labor for the school food essentially handed to his or her classmates by their parents without nearly as much thought.



    This idea does help to send home the fact that there is an upper class and a lower class in the USA so that when it comes time for these kids to vote they will know who is on their side and who is on the other side.

    This guy is the son of a university professor. He had a fairly privileged upbringing and thus has no idea what it is like to grow up poor as a kid. What an asshole. I mean what is he wanting to stand there at the lunch line and tell some 1st grader "Hey kid, you can have your Chilimac today, but first I need you to take this broom here and sweep the floor in front of all your friends".

    Personally, I grew up poor. Very poor actually, we did not take free or reduced lunches, we just brought ours instead (the same crappy lunch every day). However, I know what its like to be a poor kid. I know what its like to boil water to take a bath in for months on end because your gas is cut off. I know what its like having no A/C in Arkansas summers living in a trailer. This guy has no idea. Despite growing up poor, I always knew the value of work, indeed growing up poor is what instilled it in me. I got my first real job when I was 15 and have worked my whole life since. Before I was married I worked 2 jobs to get ahead. We would be considered upper middle class now I suppose, but I worked hard to get here and I did not need some privileged extreme right jackass to instill that in me. How crazy and mean do these guys have to get before we all say this is ridiculous, go home, and for God sakes get the hell out of government. We don't want people like you, Jack Kingston, telling us how to run our lives or our country. I don't see this one as a right or left issue, I see it as an anti-jackass issue.
    Isn't that in violation of child labor laws?

    You don't understand conservatives you just like to throw bombs and names around like the elitist progressive you portray on the Internet. A conservative would say, and I do, that all kids should be cleaning the school, the cafeteria and when I was in school we did just that on rotation. We had a kitchen rotation and we worked it. But today's coddled leftist loser humans need hand outs and as you have so well illustrated here on the forum you can't imagine having a poor / rich or any child actually work for a bite to eat. You think everything in life is entitled, and I call BS. But that's ok once you break the system and it collapses around you those who understand work, self sufficiency and living without the grubbynutt hand out will be the one's sticking around and getting the job done.

    Ready "One Second After" it will tell you what happens to the inept.

    Now you are just making stuff up to trot your favorite stalking horse out for.

    I NEVER said some don't work, I WORKED, my daughter WORKED, you claim to have.... but what I said is there is a legion of coddled middle class brats who think being badgered to take out the trash somehow is the same as working for their allowance. NO KID should have to work before he/she has a learner's permit. No kid should have to work for food but hard cash like the rest of us.

    FYI I come from a very distant day and I NEVER heard of kids working in the cafeteria, just what work did the school have children do? (You really think that taught any kid 'hard work' gets you a damn thing... more like ya have to do some suck-ass things to keep the creep off your back)

    I NEVER said anything about everything in life is entitled.... POINT TO WHERE I DID!

    I have said a poor kid can't get off a murder rap coz he didn't learn at home- DID SAY a very rich kid got to skip out on multiple murders for that very 'reason'.

    It is very bigoted to think kids don't learn to work for what they want just because their parents don't earn enough so they qualify for free lunches...

    It is very bigoted to think rural kids don't suffer from the same 'sense of entitlement', hell I've seen rural losers think the world owes them something because their last names is....... and 'grand daddy homesteaded here in 1907!'

    One of the richest wheat farmers around here ran for the water district commissioner awhile back, man had served on the national wheat board and was running for this piss-pot job. I found out why, he had cancer and his insurance was going to hit him up for a HUGE premium increase. Now it isn't he couldn't afford that but he is a .......... dammitt, he deserves better! As a Commissioner he got FREE insurance that must have cost us taxpayers plenty!

    So you can put away your stereotypes, you are HIGHLY selective in using them.

I think this would teach kids to take better care of things.
    I agree with this. In grade school I went to, it was a Catholic private school though, the kids would all rotate chores after lunch instead of going recess. Each week it would rotate and the boys took out the trash and helped the lunch ladies put everything away while the girls washed the tables and swept the floor. It was actually kinda fun and we would always work together and you would get to know other people outside your normal clique.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
