    What's hard to believe about that? We did that at my school too.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    so how did your children pay your for their lunch money? Strangely I've rarely heard of non-poor children being expected to pay their parents back for lunch, or breakfast, or dinner. Hmm, but poor kids whose parents don't have that money should have to work to be fed? It takes a special kind of hate to think children should work to have the honor of not being hungry.

    You can call BS all you want, its what we did in a "small town" school district in the 70's. You call it progress I call it socialist crap.

    Isn't that what liberals do? How often do we engage in social policy due to the "poor" story of this person or that?

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.

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.
    Kingston is from the "I Got Mine, **** You!" contingent of the GOP, aka Tea Party. His voting record tells you all you need to know.

    Kingston, formerly of the Agriculture Appropriations Committee, supported giving billionaires millions upon millions in farm subsidies for doing nothing, no work at all. Kingston supports the heavily government subsidized dairy industry but doesn't want to support poor children who need a good lunch or even breakfast. Kingston supports paying farmers millions to grow no crops, to do nothing while demanding poor children work to eat at school. Kingston talking out of his flabby white ass says poor, largely black children need to learn work ethic.

    As usual, my dear, you are full of sarcasm and hyperbole...hardly suitable debate tactics, don't you think?

    Anyway, when did I say I ever made my kids pay me back for their lunch, breakfast or any other meal?

    You got any other deliberate misunderstandings you want to air out?

    Then why do you expect poor kids to be taught "TANSTAAFL" with regard to eating lunch when your kids and non-poor kids are not expected to?
    And if you think asking a valid question is sarcasm and hyperbole, you have comprehension issues, but we've seen how obtuse you can be when you're pinned.

    1. The remark you responded to said nothing about school lunches. It talked about TANSTAAFL.

    2. If you have read a little more of this thread before you reacted (with misunderstanding, as usual), you would know that I suggested that the PARENTS work for their kid's "free" lunch. But, of course, I'm sure you can come up with something equally sarcastic and hyperbolic about that notion, as well.

    3. Your question about me and my kids was dripping with sarcasm and hyperbole...and now you compound your idiotic debate tactic by feigning innocence. Have you no shame?

    Many of those parents are already working 2-3 jobs just to pay rent, afterschool childcare, utilities, bus fares, and so on, and now you want them to be free labor for their kids? I bet you think they should equally find time to "be better parents". I think you are so ignorant of what the working poor face as to be useless in such conversation. Bless your heart.
