I was simply responding to your original post about "what have CB grads done". You bring up important issues but to say the school is responsible, I just do not agree.  (Jul 8, 2013 | post #146)

Without giving names for privacy CBHS has produced lawyers, doctors, a judge, an actor, a movie director, military members, NBA player, many, many college grads. How many stayed home? A few. The director can be seen working at local spots and one proud alum and successful businessman can be found at Denson's grocery.  (Jul 8, 2013 | post #143)

Beach schools to serve summer meals

Not quite sure, nor do I care. As long as some kid gets a meal they wouldn't otherwise have, it's all good to me. Does Satan talk to you through osmosis or does he actually pay you a visit?  (Jul 2, 2013 | post #86)

Funny guy. I am an ally to the movement though. Glad to see you're so open minded.  (Jul 2, 2013 | post #84)

Of course Chick Fil A doesn't hate gays... I eat there every Monday. Love their food and sauce, but it does often seem like a Sunday school class. But I digress. And I am not blaming Bush for anything. I think there are only 3 people on the planet that still believe it was a good idea to go to war with Iraq, Bush, Cheney and Geezer...wait, 4 with Tony Blair.  (Jun 27, 2013 | post #72)

Geezer, don't recall blaming Bush for any ills, so please don't put words in my mouth. You and I can go round and round on these issues. It seems as if we have different opinions on what spending we like and don't. I do however, find your answer about gay marriage/civil unions to be good. I wish more of your conservative friends shared your beliefs as you and I wouldn't be having this conversation. The progressives do have a legit problem as most on the Christian right (those whom decide most GOP primaries) do not even support civil unions.  (Jun 27, 2013 | post #68)

Again, I ask, where were you when Bush was "wasting " taxpayer money on the Iraq war? Where do you stand on "wasting " taxpayer money fighting for discrimination against gays and lesbians? If you are true to word in your fight against wasteful spending, you would answer these questions. I know where you stand on the social safety net. I would be curious to hear your thoughts on issues some of us find "wasteful "? (And to answer your question, instead of avoiding it, I think the war in Afghanistan was the correct response from the U.S. after 9/11)  (Jun 27, 2013 | post #64)

And you can't seem to "catch on" or read. Firt, the federal government pays for this program. Little local cost. Second, do you consider low cost or free lunches during the year appropriate? Sounds like you may. Third, how does serving free lunch "cost" their education?? Last, when you contributed to those homeless people, did you scold them to stop being lazy and get a job in the process? Were they children who can't help the lot they have been given in life? Do you support state funding for foster parenting or adoption programs? Do you support state funding for roads or do you think those lazy roads need to get a job and pave themselves?  (Jun 26, 2013 | post #129)

Congrats! I am sure that there are a lot of other successful, relentless people who may have used the SFSP when needed and grew up to be productive members of society. A child is not to blame.  (Jun 26, 2013 | post #61)

So you are a conspiracy theorist, who thinks that schools should teach "rading" (at least you spelled English correctly) and believe that the 10 commandments should be taught in school?? Wow. Would you believe that there are actually people who live in the real world, who have two jobs, work hard and are still considered the working poor?? You are aware that people from humble means can grow up to do great things? You are aware that there are folks who are "disabled " by the letter of the law, who still go to work, yet may receive some sort of assistance? A kid whose family is poor getting lunch and breakfast at school is a lot different than the guy who lives off the government dole for the last 20 years because of sore back, claiming disability. Don't punish kids, punish the abusers.  (Jun 26, 2013 | post #59)

I have two jobs, no social programs for my family, we just don't hate those less fortunate or need some help. I'd rather my tax dollars go to that as opposed to another war in a country that didn't do anything to us. I bet you eat at Chick Fil A specifically because they hate gays?? Shop at Walmart only because they pay low wages?? Still mad at the audicity of an african american to run for office, and win twice? Probably want public schools to teach creationism too, right?  (Jun 26, 2013 | post #57)

Did you go to public school HB? Feeding hungry kids, through no fault of their own, is not a bad thing, yet you have a problem with it. You and Geezer should put down the Ayn Rand books, watch something other than Fox News, stop listening to Rush and Hannity, drop the mantra of the worst parts of the Republican party and remember that organ beating in your chest is a heart.  (Jun 26, 2013 | post #127)

And yet you continue to ignore a few things. A news story comes out and you outraged by it, only to ignore the fact it was been around for a long time. It has survived Democratic and Republican White Houses and Congress. My use of wikipedia was only for a quick reference... yet you are shocked by this horrible social program aimed at perpetuating our communist policies. Where was the outrage when Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Bush x 2 did nothing to get rid of it?  (Jun 26, 2013 | post #56)
