Seems to me a sprinkler is a very creative way of ensuring the kids eat for a very long time.......


One afternoon, a wealthy lawyer was riding in the back of his limousine when he saw two pathetic-looking men by the side of the road, eating grass. He ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate. He asked the men, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have no money for food," the first man replied.

"Then you must come with me to my house," insisted the lawyer.
"But, sir, I got a wife and three kids here," said the man.
"Bring them along!" replied the lawyer.
The second man exclaimed, "I got a wife and six kids!"
"Bring them as well!", the lawyer proclaimed as he headed back to his limo.
They all climbed into the car, and once underway, one of the men expresses, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
The lawyer replied, "I'm most happy to do it. You'll love my place. The grass is almost a foot tall."

Their families probably have a refrigerator too.

And a color TV.
And Cable.
And a flat screen TV.
And a WII.
And a SUV.
And a dog.
And More than one toilet.

But we are going to feed them


Feel free to get on welfare if you think its so sweet. We'll be happy to feed you too just so you'll stop biatching about it. Maybe with a full stomach you'll start to think about us buying billion dollar planes and tanks that go un-used instead of worrying that somebody got $175.00 you think they don't need because they have a Playstation 2 in their house.

Sargun: netcentric: Teacher:   How many of you students have the new NIKE sneakers?   Kids all raise their hands.   How many have two pairs at least.   All raise hands.   How many of you have a cell phone better than this one (holds up personal phone).   Kids all raise hands.

Teacher: and yet I note that every one of you is signed up as 'in need' and get free breakfast and lunch.   Hmmmm...

Teacher: ok, well on to our reading assignment....


/Penna.

Phones are free or cheap with contract, and shoes cost like $60.

THE HORROR OF PROVIDING CHILDREN WITH SHOES AND A CELL PHONE


Their families probably have a refrigerator too.

Since this earmarked money was illegally shifted from one bucket to another, the attorney general will soon announce criminal charges, right?

/right?

sno man: Langdon_777: Money is handed to them for a specific program, it is the job of their accounts department to ensure this happens.

I noticed there is no mention of specific names and no mention of charges or job loses.

"The report states that none of the school districts mentioned is accused of embezzling money for personal profit" and yet it seems these people profited by still having jobs "(used to) pay for expenses ... salaries of employees at the district's television station."

A school district has a television station?!?  Is this a thing?


There was an article here a couple years ago talking about one of their new schools that opened that cost 1 billion dollars. It even had some sort of famous night club recreated for the students to get shot in.

This is what happens when you have the feds involved in programs that should be operated at the state and local level.  Welcome to Obananny's America.
