People keep forgetting this part. IIRC, it was the farm lobby that started pushing for the school reduced and free lunch program. And the government who had all that food in warehouses that they had 'purchased' needing a place to go.

I also remember vividly the soft drink people pushing long and hard to get soda machines into schools. Their selling point was the school got part of the take. Now they just replace soda with other sugar water drinks

But education is wasteful (and yes, nutrition is part of the education package, whether you like it or not. Look it up.)? Nice priorities you have.

My objection is to illegal aliens and "bogus" asylum seekers. This topic isn't about that anyway it's about the taxpayer providing free lunches in schools.

Go away, if you're going to continue to play the race and not stay on topic!
You and other people brought that card to the thread when started pointing out how bad it is that non-citizens kids get to eat at schools. I am only replying to that full of hate comments and try to find if there is some humanity left inside people here with that mentality. Of course there is not. And you do not shut down my voice. If you donít like my comments feel free of not reading them (itís not like you understand anything anyway).

So is it YOU the one who get to decide what expenses are a waste and which are not? And I have to believe it because you said so? Wow man you can some ego issues going on.

It is she. And I didnít bring it. That post was a reply to another poster who said she/he was against non-citizens illegal kids getting free lunches at school. You decided to continue that line of thought because you obviously share those same thoughts of that poster.

I never mentioned the status of these kids in our country nor the race of any of these kids. What I said is that I oppose free breakfasts and lunches in our schools. That would be for anyone, white, black, Hispanic, etc. I do however, oppose all handouts to kids here illegally even more so because they shouldn't even be here. Are you done now?

Are you for real? Where did I say I had the authority to decide how our taxes are spent? I just offered my opinion just like you did in another post as to what you deem to be a waste of our tax dollars. Are you special that you can offer your opinion but I can't? Go away, please. You're being ridiculous and obviously looking for a whipping post in here.

I'm here to enlighten the clueless. Where was I screaming? It's you liberals that constantly bring up race/skin color to demonize us conservatives and you know it! We aren't allowed to defend ourselves? I have no internal bias unless you call being opposed to illegal immigration a bias.

Now, I have had enough of you! This topic is about free school lunches not race or skin color. I don't care what race or skin color these kids have, schools aren't restaurants they are education facilities and their parents are responsible for feeding them, not the taxpayer. Buh, bye welcome to my ignore list. Find yourself another whipping post.

Don't worry. They play the race card whenever they run out of arguments. It doesn't mean anything anymore.

Not wanting to pay for all the illegals' meals, education, housing, etc. does not mean you are a racist. I would be willing to bet the people who say so are the 45% who pay zero federal income taxes and want YOU to pay more.
