Are There No Workhouses??


Last year Republican legislators in Tennessee wanted to tie benefits for food, clothing and shelter to a child's grades in school. Now there's another execrable idea targeting needy children again. At least this chucklehead is from Georgia.


He also opines kids lack work ethics at schools and they do nothing yet earn respect and benefits. He joins the Mythmakers who think schools are the hard scrabble exclusive proving grounds teaching that it's a dog-eat-dog world.

Go into any school and I'll promise you you'll find students working on many assigned jobs, from cleaning to oversight of classrooms, grounds, and more. All students are involved, regardless of their parents' income.

And yeah, you will change the world if you demonize hungry children. Just not for the better.

The biggest reason kicking people when they are down became popular among "conservatives" is they found out it was a great way to shine their shoes.
