|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.
