    Default Republicans: Hunger Can Be A Positive Motivator

    So I was watching Colbert Report and heard of this.

    Apparently, hunger will make little Jimmy go to Harvard, and little Suzy to the kitchen and rearing the kids.(In the spirit of the Theocons, this is the ideal world for her)

    A gun can be a real motivator, but it won't make her grow a brain any faster.

    Good. Time for the poor to get off their asses and start contributing.

    I can say this, because I am just about as poor as you can get in a civilized country.

    Poor people contribute by eating at McDonalds and working at McDonalds. Just keep doing that.

    any negative influence on a kid during their formative years can lead them to succeed, giving them a drive to be better
    it could also lead them to be a serial killer, or a criminal, or just a defeatist failure, but whateva

    Yeah, that's exactly what she said........

    Stupid comment for a politician? Yes. False statement? Not really.

    You can't really prove that anyone can be motivated anyways. People only do as much as they have to, and maybe less. Sure if the only option is to work they'll do it, but they'll do whatever they'd rather do first, mooch, steal, unemployment insurance or whatever your country has, etc. I'm not too fond of feeding other people by raising taxes, I'd like to make it easier to let everyone afford to eat by cutting them =\.

    3.7 million meals at a total cost of less than $9.5 million last

    Not to mention, do the math. What a fucking waste of money.

    $2.50 per meal is a lot.

    The problem is the food they are giving them tastes good =/
    Vitamins, bread, and water, and maybe some spam. Thats all.

    But then again, theres business involved in purchasing that food, it doesnt come from no where. So its not all bad.

    It is all bad. Let the lazy trash feed their own kids and let me keep the money I work for to take care of my needs. Porn ain't cheap.

    Its cause the government has no experience in real budgeting.

    I live in one of the most expensive to live cities in my country, and I can still make a meal for under that. A whole loaf of bread costs 99 cents plus tax (safeway ftw), milk a maybe 5 bucks at most, a dozen eggs I get free from my friend (lives outside city), maple syrup for a few more bucks and add a few cents for energy and equipment overhead and I can get a 3 slice french toast breakfast for under a dollar, including a glass of milk on the side. That's pretty classy food for a poor kid so I think they can manage.

    Throw in an orange too or some juice and it may break a buck, maybe. Full meal right there.

    Hunger motivates me, it causes me to go out and kill people to feast on their flesh. Though it's never motivated me to be a better person...

    Only a 3-slice french toast breakfast? I guess women really can prepare a $1 "full" meal.

    Bread for 99 cents? Even at safeway if the hobo on the side put his fucking dick through each slice they'd still sell it for 3+ bucks
