    So when reports came out of NSA employees violating the law to spy on their relatives/girlfriends/etc, you blamed the employees and not the government, right?

    Then why provide two articles that proclaim just that? Seems your break from this forum has affected your grasp on logic and debate.

    Poverty is a lib thing but I didn't say that no poor families are republicans.

    But when people demand handouts from the government they tend to become democrats sooner or later.

    Correct. You feed the kids and have them bring a note home to their parents telling them of the shortage in their lunch fund. That would be the only proper way to handle it. I don't know why plain common sense is so rare these days.

    I agree with you here, take it out on the parents, garnish their wages, but give the children their needed lunch.

    Well said, personally I not interested in retribution, I would prefer that incidents like this are properly administered, without the children taking a hit. One can garnish wages, dock pay, et al, that is not as important as to have a policy where the children are denied food.

    If someone gave the "ok" why would it only been going on in this school? Do you know of any other schools that this company is involved with that this happened in? If so please provide that information.

    And naturally, 'management' claims they're never aware of what their employees are doing, and then invariably scapegoat the workers themselves when they get caught. Nobody is ever in charge, apparently, except when the bonus checks are handed out to the 'management' who claim to not have a clue about the businesses they manage. Hilarious.

    really:
    But that's a fact apparently missed on the school's meal provider, Whitson's, who recently sent a staffer to the cafeteria to enforce its rule mandating that students unable to pay for food shouldn't get any.

    I think that you are confusing this story with a similar one in Utah, where the school officials did the same thing as the Whitson company did in Massachusetts.
    Compassionate conservatism seems to be poking its head out all over the place.

    What's your point, other than to distract?
    The public school system is implemented at the county level and they chose to deny the kids lunches.
    You could say that at least they're one step up from the Whitson gang since they gave the kids a drink and fruit after throwing their school lunches away.
    Tell me again what the (*)(*)(*)(*) you're defending here?

    That may be your opinion but it is more about the method used in teaching that. I will never see a "not feeding kids" punishment of children as a proper method.

    You believe it is okay for children to go hungry for the rest of the school day. I say that is inhumane.

    Okay. But I will always add "inhumane" to your description.

    I can guarantee you that Whitsons is not liberal and that not feeding children had nothing to do with any school system.
