Another GOP Clown Boards The Pro Child Labor Bus

From Album 5

First, it’s not even original. N. Leroy proposed the same thing some two years ago, and it was just as dumb then. Second, using poor children as props for your asinine wingnuttery is…just plain sick. Finally, poor children hardly need any reminding they’re poor. Some of their less poor classmates very likely tease or taunt them — kids can be like that — which, almost unbelievably, might be the LEAST stressful part of their day. Between crappy neighborhoods and parents who might lash out at them, to limited access to books or toys,physical hunger offset strictly by…school cafeteria food that’s regularly the butt of jokes, to the understanding that “vacation” is…more of the same, grim, possibly crime ridden neighborhood, no, I’d say these kids know damn well there’s no “free” lunch, and especially don’t need to be told that by a member (making $175 thousand dollars a year) of the Least Productive Congress Ever, a Congress that spent less time in session…than these kids spent at school.

Jack Kingston can go fuck himself. And clean up afterwards.

  1. So, is Mr. Kingston saying that he personally paid for each and every lunch he ate this past year while he was in Congress? Out of his own pocket, not on his taxpayer-funded congressional office expense account?
    Is he willing to produce records that show that? Please, Mr. Kingston, show us all what it’s like to pay for your own lunch each and every day.
    Gee, I hope none of our fearless bulldog reporters on the political scene are so churlish as to ask Mr. Kingston to do anything like that.

  2. Why don’t we teach little rich brats that there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
    Make them work for their meals every day? Make them work for anything.
    That’s something I’d like to see one time.

  3. Sorry. That was uncivil. It’s not the fault of rich children their parents are asshats.
    But I did have one too many rich 18 and 18 year olds in my freshmen classes this year, earnestly explaining to me that Wal-Mart jobs were good jobs for people without educations or opportunities.
    “Plus,” one of them told me, “I worked there to earn money for my trip to Europe, and my boss was real nice to me. So don’t believe the stories you hear!”
