Just... Just... OW. My brain literally hurts trying to comprehend how the flipping flying fark Republicans and their rabid followers think this is at all helpful or beneficial to the American public.
 
2012-04-26 04:08:35 PM
It's positively Dickensian.

"moaaaaar?"

vernonFL: alaric3: I suggest compromise:
Can't we feed 280,000 hungry children to 3340 Millionaires?

A modest proposal.


Actually, the millionaires are pretty rich, I suggest it should be the other way around.
 
2012-04-26 04:32:55 PM

Slaxl: It's just not funny anymore. Why does the GOP have a loyal following of poor people who think the millionaires need tax breaks while their children starve? Why does this happen?


Because they're a bunch of petty motherf*ckers.
 
2012-04-26 04:33:02 PM

SlothB77: Cutting taxes for the rich will lead to more prosperity which will lead to well more than 280,000 children who were hungry, no longer being hungry anymore. So, cutting taxes for the rich will actually help out more children.


This is what Republicans actually believe! LOL
 
2012-04-26 04:34:51 PM
"If you want to feed hungry children so badly, then do it yourself"

is kinda like

"Write your own check to the government if you think they need more tax money"
 
2012-04-26 04:34:54 PM
Why the f*ck should children have to pay for their food? Shouldn't all school meals be free? What's wrong with our society that we have to turn a profit by feeding kids?
 
2012-04-26 04:34:56 PM

alaric3: I suggest compromise:
Can't we feed 280,000 hungry children to 3340 Millionaires?


I have an alternate compromise. Let's feed 3340 millionaires to 280,000 hungry children.

Lost Thought 00: Why the f*ck should children have to pay for their food? Shouldn't all school meals be free? What's wrong with our society that we have to turn a profit by feeding kids?



School lunches don't turn a profit.

AdolfOliverPanties: choo: And instead of hiring cafeteria workers, why don't we let these schoolchildren purchase, prepare and serve these nutritious meals as a sort of "job-training" program?

As long as they clean up after themselves and learn valuable janitorial skills, then I'm all for it.


see the funny thing here is that when i was a kid (long ago) everyone got to take a shift in the kitchen for a week. serving food, cleaning trays and scraping the leftovers into a big can for the principals pigs.
at the time, all the kids got a kick. we didn't feel, nor did anyone think it was wrong to have the kids helping out. kids got to do something that seemed very "adult" and have a bit of responsibility.

it was not job training for a future career in janitorial services.

but somehow, i don't think this is what folks like you have in mind.

so awful.


So if you send all of your pay to a rich person, you'll end up making more money than ever, right? Give it a try.

Here is an interesting idea why don't poor people quit having children they cannot feed?

Oh, good. After false starts from cman and BillCo, Sloth is here to white-knight this reprehensible shiat in earnest.

Frontpage?! Wow, that is some seriously weak sauce.

Pour another glass of 'Tears of Conservative Rage', drink up, then try again, idiot.

Neither.

That's 2 bombs we could build to blow up our enemies with.
 
2012-04-26 04:42:06 PM
It's the Christian thing to do, people...

When "Christian" is defined as:

"Claiming to do things in the name and manner of Jesus Christ, while not actually following any of His teachings"

..the fark you talking about?

cman: what_now: Guys, I think you're missing a very important factor in all of this: some of those children are not white.

Pay attention, children, this is how you shame people into compliance: accuse them of racism.


How is this white knighting?

Americans are not poor, they are temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

Oh my God it's that easy. Why has no one thought of this before?

Quick! Start a Facebook status updating campaign! Those solve problems!

chiefsfaninkc: Here is an interesting idea why don't poor people quit having children they cannot feed?



That works, we could also make it illegal for anyone to fire people from their jobs. That way people have kids they can afford, there is no chance of them becoming poor.

Not enough meat on them, they'd have to be fattened up first.

Deflection. "Shame people into compliance", as if this isn't shameful behavior.

Or, you could just hope that their actions would cause enough shame, except that this is the Right we're talking about. They have no conscience, and therefore no shame.

Slaxl: It's just not funny anymore. Why does the GOP have a loyal following of poor people who think the millionaires need tax breaks while their children starve? Why does this happen?


Because lots of poor people think they are going to hit the lottery one day and become rich.

Because lots of poor (white) people hate blacks/gays/Muslims/Mexicans/whatever.

Because lots of poor people think abortion is murder.

Because lots of poor people think Obama is going to take their 12 guage away.

Of course, very few poor non-whites vote for Republicans.
 
2012-04-26 04:43:59 PM
So you libtards are trying to tell me all the poors have refrigerators but no food???
 
2012-04-26 04:44:24 PM
The Republican budget sells this bill as an effort to "reduce lower‐priority spending" to avert military cuts that will otherwise take place in January 2013 due to the debt deal agreed to last summer.

What a bunch of chicken hawk pussies who think that even cutting the Defense budget by 1% would make us weak and vulnerable.

They're hopeless, the lot of them.
 
2012-04-26 04:44:32 PM

Grand_Moff_Joseph: See America, shiat like this is why the EU and most other industrialized nations make fun of us all the time. They don't feel a urgent need to listen to lectures from a country that has a hard time deciding between feeding low-income school children and shielding millionaires' estates from paying taxes.


Are you aware of what is going on in Europe? Don't think they are laughing it up there Cheech.
 
2012-04-26 04:44:40 PM
Is it better to educate 280,000 poor children, or use the same money to build 3340 for-profit prisons owned by millionaires?

This format works for many, many things.

busy chillin': If I were rich, I would absolutely eat polar bear steak.

I would wish polar bear steak on rich people. They deserve all the polar bear steak they can stomach.

(Polar bear meat is completely disgusting and is somewhat unhealthy to eat.)
 
2012-04-26 04:45:25 PM
If you give the millionaires the tax breaks, the food will trickle down to the children.

They just need to look for it in the dumpsters.
 
2012-04-26 04:45:55 PM

Slaxl: It's just not funny anymore. Why does the GOP have a loyal following of poor people who think the millionaires need tax breaks while their children starve? Why does this happen?


Short answer: Jesus, Gays, Abortions, Mexicans, Soshulist sekret moslum, their parents voted Republican.

Long answer: Despite what we want to believe, people are not logical. They do not vote with their self-interest in mind. They vote with their identity in mind. They say to themselves, "What kind of Person am I? What kind of action is this (voting for this guy). Would someone like ME vote for this guy?" What often happens is that people vote with their emotions, they vote with who they "identify" with ("he's Christian, I identify with that guy!" "the opponent is liberal - he's not like me! He doesn't believe in the same things I do!"). Liberals do this too, but they identify with other things.

We could always round them up and sterlize them. Or force them have abortions.
 
2012-04-26 04:46:36 PM
Frack the children

Obama put them in debt, they need to get to work, and pay it back

Dickinson: But remember: Most men with nothing would rather protect the possibility of becoming rich than face the reality of being poor AND THAT IS WHY THEY WILL FOLLOW US!

Well, then, they are bootstrappy enough so make it bi-polar bear, live, delivered, some assembly required, and I'll chip in.

Ok, I was responding to someone who screamed "RACISM" for no reason. I called them out on it. Thats not white knighting, thats not deflection, thats a response telling them they are full of shiat.

qorkfiend: I have an alternate compromise. Let's feed 3340 millionaires to 280,000 hungry children.


That's only a temporary solution. With approximately 100 lbs of good food on a typical millionaire (I'm including sweetbreads), you'd only be able to get around a pound and a half of millionaire sausage per child.

People shouldn't have kids they can't take care of, but the reality is that they do, and the kids are not to blame. I know. I come from one of those families.

What if you were one of those children? How would you want to be treated?
 
2012-04-26 04:48:02 PM

That's complete bullshiat.

After all, Republicans aren't capable of shame.

You also spew bullshiat. This country is not just Dems v Repubs. There are many others out there that do not subscribe to the two party system.


We call those people "unimportant". If they don't vote, or always vote third party (same result), they are showing they think that the Republican candidate and the Democratic candidate are exactly equal in every way and they don't really care about which one wins. So why would any elected official bother to care what they think?
 
2012-04-26 04:49:19 PM

T.M.S.: How many jobs are those children creating?



Sarcasm aside, this program does create jobs. An increase in people ordering lunch means more cafeteria workers and more work for everyone else along the line from farm to lunch room.

chiefsfaninkc: Here is an interesting idea why don't poor people quit having children they cannot feed?


I know, with all that freely-available birth control and easily obtainable family planning services available, I wonder why they don't!
 
2012-04-26 04:50:35 PM
Is it better to fund Planned Parenthood or feed children?

I propose slashing all PP funding and using instead to feed children. If you disagree with me then you're a reprehensible monster who doesn't want to feed hungry children.

We could also cut all US ties and funding to the UN, and use that money to feed children.

We could also cut lavish pension and benefits for public sector workers and use that money to feed children.
