Let them eat breakfast cereal…

National Review editor: Parents of kids in school breakfast programs are criminals | Raw Story

Parents of children who participate in school breakfast programs are “criminally negligent,” says the Washington editor of the conservative National Review.

Kate O’Beirne, who also appears as a pundit on MSNBC, made the comment at a Republican strategy session she moderated at the Hudson Institute Friday.

“My question is what poor excuse for a parent can’t rustle up a bowl of cereal and a banana?” O’Beirne asked. “I just don’t get why millions of school children qualify for school breakfasts unless we have a major wide spread problem with child neglect.”

She continued, “If that’s how many parents are incapable of pulling together a bowl of cereal and a banana, then we have problems that are way bigger than — that problem can’t be solved with a school breakfast, because we have parents who are just criminally … criminally negligent with respect to raising children.”

O’Beirne’s comments come even as statistical evidence mounts that more and more Americans are struggling to eke out a living.

Last month, the US Census Bureau reported that the number of people living in poverty jumped to 14.3 percent of the population in 2009 — a 15-year high, and up from 12.5 percent two years earlier. That means approximately 2.5 million people have fallen into poverty since the recession began.

So this comment from this woman has me so pissed.

That breakfast cereal cost per pound as much as steak, and the cost of fresh fruit is on the rise. This woman has never had to worry about anything, so if she wants to make it out that poor people are struggling to feed their kids are just “neglecting” their kids…it just shows what an ass these Republicans are.

25 percent more for butter?! Rising food prices add to shoppers’ economic worries

Oh, and that stuff Spam…canned processed meat, which that elitist witch probably has never had to eat, is going up in price starting early next year.

General Mills, Sara Lee, Starbucks, J.M. Smucker’s and Kraft Foods have all increased prices this year. Even SPAM, the low-budget canned pork product, will go up 3 to 4 percent at around February, Austin-based Hormel Foods has announced.

These kind of comments from people who have never had to a choice between food, or heat…make me so mad I can spit.
Oh and BTW, I chose that article to cite the rise in food prices for a reason…that article is from the Palm Beach Post…a county where the extremes of poor people to rich people is probably the most of any place in the country. See, I am so pissed about that “child neglect” comment…I better go and chill for a bit.

        When talking about the racist president in the White House… (and I still can’t believe a year later that turd of a man is the president.)
