    This is a good idea gone bad. If the children of the poor are undernourished, but live at home with their own parents, then those parents are neglecting them. If that neglect is unavoidable, then curses on us and we should be moving heaven and earth to address the problem.

    But if that neglect is willful, then the answer has to lie elsewhere. There is no more powerful place to civilize a child than the dinner table. Whether the fare is rich or poor, it can be nutritious and well-prepared and served with love. The idea of lazy parents telling their wee ones to go catch a meal in the school cafeteria on the weekends because they cannot be bothered to make Sunday dinner is so disturbing, I hardly know where to begin.

    It is not my job to make dinner for my neighbor's child, any more than it is to read that kid a bedtime story or take him to the MD when he is sick. The very worst possible substitute for a parent is government.

    There has to be a better way to feed the hungry than by segregating the children from their families.

    Oh My God. What next?

    REMEMBER the healthcare classifies a "child" as 26 years old. We're gonna see lines of 18-26 year olds outside their high school cafeteria on Saturday afternoons!!!

    And the gov't wants control of the internet.

    Soon, the gov't will control your childs:

    - Education
    - Nutrition
    - Healthcare
    - Entertainment
    - Transportation
    - Housing

    Really, this is like a Communist glacier that has been creeping in for decades, and will keep slowly creeping in until 2075 when we'll be the new USSR.

    Once again we rush into another stupid program that has a warm fuzzy feeling about it but never addresses a perceived problem and costs millions if not billions.:gives:

    Go ahead....continue. I'm not gonna get evolved in this one.

    Not to mention............this takes away yet one more item of responsability from parents who do a shitty job raising their kids.

    Hey, Shanequeesha, don't worry about feeding little La'Jamar any more, the school cafe is open 7 days a week now!!! Go spend that welfare money on a new hair do instead!!!

    Hey, Bobby Billy Jo Willis, don't worry about feeding little Bubba any more, the school cafe is open 7 days a week now!!! Go buy that new NASCAR collectible plate you wanted!!!

    And of course, we didn't forget you Pedro and Juanita!!!! Bring ALL your precious immigrant children to the cafeteria Saturday!!!! They eat for free!!! Yes, even the ones that dont attend school here, because we sure as hell ain't gonna make you prove it!!!!

    Or how about this:

    Get your tubes tied or sterilized, and pay no payroll taxes for life. Only eligible for people over 18 with no kids.

    The ghetto and trailor parks would have lines miles long!!

    I fail to see how giving out school lunches on the weekend to kid is "controlling" anything.

    The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
