If you believe that feeding kids is bringing you down, you are one lost American......

Worthless parents or not....

I am blessed to have never been truly hungry.
I know that.

BTW, I would LOVE to be a welfare fraud investigator.

Or insurance fraud, or disability fraud, or employment fraud, or tax fraud, or..well, you get the idea.

I hope all of you now realize the boy recanted and never asked for lunch. Too bad the bus driver decided to take matters out on FB instead of taking his report to a superior.

I wonder if you could stand there and watch a 6 or 7 year old crying with other kids around eating their lunch and not do something to help the child. If you could....go look in the mirror please.
You realize that never happened right? But hey mention a kid and everyone just believes the little imp would never lie.

It's a really crazy story anyway. I've seen kids in elementary have great
healthy lunches packed and they throw so much food away that it is disgusting. Most schools would either give the kid a peanut butter or cheese sandwich. I've never seen a situation in the schools here where a kid didn't have lunch instead when the teachers decided not to take any lunches on a field trip and we weren't allowed to take the kids to get something to eat either. The kids didn't get to eat lunch until we returned to school and the buses took a wrong turn. We didn't return to school until 2 p.m. It was Friday the 13th, so I figured if the worst thing that happened was that the kids had a late lunch, we should be grateful everyone got back safe.
I've seen churches who want to get involved in summer feeding programs. If you point out that kids who are in a certain economic range are eligible to go to a designated school to get something to eat, they don't like it.
Some churches sponsor homeless families, do their laundry, and have volunteers that make meals for them. These are families that have lost their jobs due to some unforeseen crisis.
When did schools start providing breakfast for kids? How many went to school during a time if you didn't get breakfast at home, you just went hungry? My mom says none of the kids ate breakfast and she went to a $$$ high school.
The girls skipping breakfast were probably Wintergirls, worried about gaining an ounce.
Whats BS is the fact if you cannot feed your kids, you should not be having kids. A bowl of generic Cheerios in the morning, a sandwich and apple at lunch and some chicken for dinner. Cost, about two dollars. All we have today are folks that are nothing but leeches.

Well, MSO4, that partcular question you are criticising was a GENERALIZED question to a specific poster who has shown no compassion whatsoever toward any disadvantaged child due to her extreme racism. You realze that, right? I was referring to MY daughter having payed for a child's lunch and then having been criticized by the HATER on this thread. So, get it straight before you try to straghten anyone out...'k?

I never heard the term Wintergirls. Is that local and what does it mean? Just curious.

That would be a great rule, but it unfortunately is not the case. Therefore, people are trying to cope with the real situation, not quoting ideas on a PERFECT world.

And if you think millions of children are going hungry here you would be wrong. You see a malnourished child you should immediately contact DCF.

You seem to make up your own ideas about what others think and/or believe. I DO NOT think millions of children go hungry here, as many low info progressives might argue. There are many provisions for them with food stamps, lunch and breakfast programs in schools, etc. You assume too much in making your arguments.

I do know that some kids have parents that don't take care of them. I agree, contact DHS, do what you can. Isn't that what the man in this article we are talking about did...bring attention to the problem?

My argument was against Tired of Silly's attitude that the children should suffer because the parents were low life scum who couldn't care less. I think all efforts should be made to help the children, as they have no control over what family they are born into. And if that means paying for school lunches for them, so be it.

I apologize. Maybe I read your remark the wrong way.

I would go one step further. If parents were that damn bad, I would pay them(yes pay them) to consent to sterilization.

It's very kind to raise a child to buy another a lunch or share theirs if someone doesn't have one. Everyone may find themselves in a precarious situation. One time we had a lunch meeting and I forgot to put in an order, so I didn't get a lunch. Someone gave me their fruit and I appreciated it as we couldn't leave. Another time we had a church meeting and we were supposed to bring a lunch. Several people offered to share, but I went and got something out of the machines to get by on. We had an end of the month meeting and I grabbed cookies and a fruit tray. The women acted like I had reinvented the wheel.

We were challenged to step outside of our comfort zone, so I bought a homeless man lunch. I know now that I was flirting with danger. I also gave him some change for the laundry and tried to find out if there was any family I could call. You can think my stories are made up. I guess if you have never read any scripture, you might think "every man for himself"...

Yeah, I've been on the short side of things too. I think people who used to wait tables give bigger tips and anyone who's had rough times in life tend to be more sympathetic and giving. For the most part.

People who have enough money to tip should tip. Those who have six figure incomes should tip everywhere they go...eateries, salons, spas, etc.
