My first thought ...

It is reported that 78% of students "qualified" for free or reduced lunches (AND breakfast). The reality is that perhaps 1/3 or around 26% should be getting them.

But for the sake of argument, let's stick with the 78%. That means 22% can afford them, but will be included in the so called "free" program anyway.

The Obama administration has been almost comical in its' efforts to expand that food stamp program, with their advertising in Mexico and pushing it door to door in retirement communities.

Now, the Obama administration has figured out a way for a little over 7000 students in Richmond County (22% of the 32,159 enrolled per BOE) to be pulled into government dependency without ever filling out a form!

IE: You WILL become dependent, whether you want to or not! Will the madness ever stop?

.
Answer: Yes, but only when the economy collapses, as Margaret Thatcher said, at that point where the socialists run out of other people's money.

Not a pretty picture.

Won't argue

Won't argue with that Darby, but I hope we can stop it before it gets to that point. I'm no longer holding my breath though.

Making sure children in school are properly fed so they can be better and contribute to our country shouldn't be controversial.

"Making sure children in school are properly

fed so they can be better and contribute to our country shouldn't be controversial."

Oh! that it could be that simple. Have you considered the fact that for generations we had what many considered the premier educational system in the world.

A system under which parents were responsible for feeding and clothing their own children and making certain that they got to school, behaved in school and did their homework when they weren't in school.

What happened?

I know, but I don't think you do....

There is no Free Lunch

Someone working is paying for it.

Just another Freebie as we run up to the next election, votes.

Never met a Liberal that did not love spending any ones $$$$ other than their own.
