Speaker2Animals: OK, since that didn't work, care to share the name of the "Republican in my area" at least?


LOL.  What is it with you liberals and evidence?  Evidence is nothing more than a series of well-researched facts.  Evidence doesn't prove anything.  If you actually had an opinion worth hearing out, you wouldn't have to rely on evidence all the time.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: You know what would really give those kids a sense of pride and accomplishment? Let them clean the toilets... you'd have to be careful though to avoid the inevitable fights that would break out over who gets to clean the shiatter in the teachers' lounge.


I'll do the girls' locker room. I just have to bring my AV equipment with me so it doesn't get stolen and shiat.

I've resolved myself to the fact that I will absolutely never understand why conservatives pick the battles that they do.  School lunches?  A little kid getting something to eat?  This is the hill this guy chose to die on?  Farking school lunches.  Unreal.

ZeroCorpse: /It's amazing how Republicans love A Christmas Carol but completely miss the farking point of it.


? I don't get what you're saying. A Christmas Carol is a cautionary tale about how job creators like Scrooge (who spent a lifetime building up wealth) are under so much pressure and stress from their hard work, they can suffer terrible hallucinations and go nuts and give their money away leaving them no legacy. The moral is that Scrooge's contribution to the economy by employing lots of people and amassing all that wealth doesn't matter if he doesn't take care of his mental health. This is why it's so important to have your yachts, etc. Rich people need their "me time," and need to stop being so charitable all the time. I don't see how that conflicts with the Republican philosophy.

So many questions.

Did you drink paint thinner as a child?

Is there a crayon still lodged in your brain?

How often do you huff gold paint?

Were you dropped on your head?

"At this festive season of the year, Mr Scrooge, ... it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir."
"Are there no prisons?"
"Plenty of prisons..."
"And the Union workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?"
"Both very busy, sir..."
"Those who are badly off must go there."
"Many can't go there; and many would rather die."
"If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."


/It's amazing how Republicans love A Christmas Carol but  completely miss the farking point of it.
//The same goes for their understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
///Honestly, when you embrace the idea that charity must be earned, you're an asshole who will go down in history as a selfish villain.

ELKAY: I wouldn't be opposed to having children work around the cafeteria, but not singling out the free lunch kids. I think all kids should have little chores to do. Have kids take turns wiping down the table or doing a little sweeping.

FTFA: WSAV also found that Kingston also racked up $4,289 of free meals paid for by third-party groups like the Georgia Bankers Association and the Congressional Institute.
