    far from beggars, hard working folks, some with a sworn duty to protect the whiniest of CONs.

    Grant is of the opinion using CON is 'insulting'... THIS beggar CON crap is both ignorant and insulting.

    Educate your CON self....
    You think I'm a Con cause I used the word beggars? Have you never heard the phrase "beggars can't be choosers"? Try this one, "never look a gift horse in the mouth".

    Then why are you complaining about school lunches. What do you put in your kids lunches?

    What happens when a parent disagrees with the decisions of the government school food czars? Will they have any recourse? Will the government decide when a child is to eat, and with whom?
    Ah but here's your problem. There are parents who don't take responsibility. They don't provide breakfast for their children, they don't do the right thing and pack a lunch. I was one of those children. The moral and right thing that we can do as a civilized society is provide a meal to a child at school. For many those are the only meals that they receive.

    It is and if they're to be given anything it ought to be "healthy".

    So the answer is to reward the parents irresponsibility with a plan that allows them to become even more irresponsible. Where's the learning process here?

    As it is, schools decided some time ago to provide a lunch to these children, of whom you were one at one point. Then it became breakfast and lunch. Then breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Then all that and perhaps something to take home for dinner. Here in Los Angeles, for many kids it's all that, plus weekends, year round, and available whether they're a student or not, as long as the kid is under 18.

    So, where does it stop? Are these parents going to eventually be removed from the equation? Because, it certainly can't be argued they are being made to learn to be more responsible.

    I can't fathom why anyone with any sense of moral decency would want to deny our children access to food particularly healthy food in our learning institutions. What's the conservative message in that? Anyone who has common sense should be aware of the fact that there are irresponsible parents who don't provide properly for their children. So give them some damn decent food at school and go find something else to bitch about.

    Your solution is to punish the child and let them go hungry all day? Tough kid, We're not going to reward your irresponsible parents by giving you a sandwich. Talk about a ****ing heartless POV.

    So punish the responsible parents by taxing them so you dont feel guilty. Ever think many of these kids on free meals are because the parents refuse to be responsible because they know ppl like you will gladly make others pay for thier kids?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
