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.

Go ahead…make your move!

This is my attempt to work through my thoughts and ideals…so if you get offended or do not agree with me, I am sorry...that's your opinion and I am glad that you have it! This undertaking is my own. I write this blog for me alone, and it's not meant to persuade anyone. Just because I link it, does not mean I completely agree with it…It just means I read these articles and form my own opinions. This blog is my way of giving myself a proper flogging about the head and shoulders. It is a form of self-torture that I must work out.

Hillary Rodham Clinton

“I supported Hillary because she was the best candidate, because she was a woman, and because I am a woman. Women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s representation, women’s causes, and the fact that she was a smart populist woman instead of another empty suit — yes, absolutely, all reasons I supported Hillary Clinton.” -Wonk the Vote

Hillary’s Quotes

"We are here to advance the cause of women and to advance the cause of democracy and to make it absolutely clear that the two are inseparable. There cannot be true democracy unless women's voices are heard. There cannot be true democracy unless women are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their own lives."

"Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you."

"The challenge is to practice politics as the art of making what appears to be impossible, possible."

"What we have to do... is to find a way to celebrate our diversity and debate our differences without fracturing our communities."

"We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential."

"It is a violation of human rights when babies are denied food, or drowned, or suffocated, or their spines broken, simply because they are born girls.

It is a violation of human rights when women and girls are sold into the slavery of prostitution.

It is a violation of human rights when women are doused with gasoline, set on fire and burned to death because their marriage dowries are deemed too small.

It is a violation of human rights when individual women are raped in their own communities and when thousands of women are subjected to rape as a tactic or prize of war.

It is a violation of human rights when a leading cause of death worldwide among women ages 14 to 44 is the violence they are subjected to in their own homes.

It is a violation of human rights when young girls are brutalized by the painful and degrading practice of genital mutilation.

It is a violation of human rights when women are denied the right to plan their own families, and that includes being forced to have abortions or being sterilized against their will.

If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, it is that human rights are women's rights - and women's rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely - and the right to be heard." (from 'Women's Rights Are Human Rights' Speech Beijing, China: 5 September 1995)
