You're so not getting it, I don't even know where to begin.
But let me assure you envy isn't the issue. It was a male fifth grade student. I'm just not into that kind of clothing or sneakers.
However, I did feel a little sorry for a few of the other boys in my class who wore their older siblings hand-me-downs and brought a sandwich from home every day.
Even so, it's probably still too obvious. So just forget it.
I'm only sorry you twisted this into something so unrecognizable it made you sick.
What a load. You couldn't stand the the Hispanic kid was dressed nicely. Period. If he was white you wouldn't have even had such a thought. Perhaps the kid had grandparents who bought his clothes; perhaps his parents were divorced and his father bought the clothes, perhaps his mother worked in a retail store... The possibilities are endless. Free lunch is based on income.

In a perfect world, bad teachers and administrators would be fired.
Last I checked, it wasn't perfect.
"Educators" are too busy bending over for Obama by putting below average intelligence students in advanced placement classes. Expecting high performance results from corporations dumbed down by employees with faux degrees is taking political correctness too far.



You won't see Japan risking it's economy by soothing the damaged egos of losers who think a college degree is something they deserve instead of something they achieve.
Yeah

"Galt pays far more for utilities and food every year than for medical care, all paid in cash, with no insurance…."
Translated,-

Galt pays more for food and utilities via a cash, than he does for medical care.

Anything beyond that is actually an open ?, as Galt could just have an inexpensive, worthless policy, with extremely high deductables and out of pocket expenses that he doesn't use much because of it.

Kind of like alot of the robbinghoodietic plans....at 100$ a month, with deductables of 1000$.

Which is the underlying problem in expecting healthy, young people to just pick up the tabs for NOTHING useful, to float an already over used and abused system of "fwee riders".

WORKING class people ALREADY pay taxes for THAT, every payday...and the idiots in DC can't even manage THAT.

Why would should they have to be saddled with MORE expenses to pay any MORE for nothing beneficial to them.

Cap, Curb (the already existing over used and abused welfare programs) B-U-D-G-E-T, balance and live with in Americas means again.

The economy and reality demand it!

REDO the HIPPA and Constiutional Breaching american communist act--it does NOT belong miring down and mucking up the private sector market, or on the oh so hackable public webs of more givverment failure, but instead belongs in the givverment offices of socialist programs-held at ACCOUNTABILITY-and for VERIFICATION and Identification purposes.

T.E.A.!

Independent working class voters FOR America again-NOT divide and drain MORE against it!

The great irony of this era under a Bozo regime is that while the rest of the globe is rising from the ashes of communism, socialism, economic ignorance and extreme poverty using the powerful machine of economic freedom, America is sliding backward into an economic collapse following the Magic Negro's corrupt and iron-fisted race to the bottom attempting to use centralized economic planning.
We're all heading for Kenya behind a grinning Banana Boat captain.
People are figuring that out now. Even some the oduhmbo zombie voter types.
(kinda funny to hear some of them spout as they finally get a little hint of reality clue) while OTHER type voters continue to "Pass on THAT slow boat to commietic no-where-ville!"

The great "irony" is your refusal to admit the great failure of our times has been Republican "trickle down" economics, based on the faulty premise that the more government cuts taxes, the more revenue is generated.
The simple fact is, the tax breaks never generated enough new revenue to compensate for what was lost.
So, yes, we are fighting our way out of the ashes, all right. Five terms worth of failed GOP economics.
Cap and Curb all those fwee riding red states!

SICK CALL: O'bama bundler Anthony Welters’ firm owns the company picked to repair the health Web site.
The couple then became top donors for Obama’s inauguration festivities, kicking in $100,000 out of their own pockets and bundling another $300,000 from friends and business associates, according to the center.
The investments quickly paid off for Beatrice Welters. The Obama administration tapped her in 2009 for the plum job of US ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, which she held through last November.
The couple have been frequent guests at the White House.
Visitors logs show at least a dozen visits between the two by the end of 2012, the most recent information available.
The entire Welters family has gotten into the donation game.
The Welters, along with their sons, Andrew and Bryant, have contributed more than $258,000 to mostly Democratic candidates and committees since 2007.
What’s more, UnitedHealth Group is one of the largest health-insurance companies in the country and spent millions lobbying for ObamaCare.
The insurance giant’s purchase of QSSI in 2012 raised eyebrows on Capitol Hill, but the tech firm nevertheless kept the job of building the data hub for the ObamaCare Web site where consumers buy the new mandatory health-­insurance plans.
QSSI has been paid an estimated $150 million so far, but officials couldn’t say how much more the company might collect on the ­repair contract.
Makes one wonder how much money O'bama and the democrats have stolen already.
And all's that needed done was a little upgrade tweak to existing system prgrams already found in every local givverment services office across the U.S.

People would've already had actual verifiable, indentifiable via far more secure means with out breaching HIPPA violations or the Constitution-to options of affordable care, should they choose to-rather than being communistically forced to pay yet MORE for an already beleagured and bloated system.

Just unreal.

Must I have a degree in economics to know the mountain of debt we have today began with the Reagan tax cuts and accelerated under the tax cuts of Bush?
FYI, I have two courses in college economics under my belt. It's not as though I'm totally ignorant of the subject. And you are no Paul Krugman.
I recall just the mention of "trickle down" economics was enough to make my instructors' eyeballs roll.
Well, they were right, weren't they?
The trickle down theory actually worked...the economy was excellent-plenty of JOBS and work for people that didn't mind doing so, with capped and curbed and far more constrained BUDGETS on the fwee-riding type socialist programs.

You were just oblivious to it, sitting there in some four walled box of a room, slurping up every word of some cross eyed college instructor as some sort of gospel real-rest-of-the-working-class - world truth lol.
