Today while working at the free dinner my church serves every Tuesday,

I had to tell a little kid he had to wait 1/2 hour to ask for seconds because we're never sure how many are coming and don't serve seconds before 6PM.

So a little kid had to wait 1/2 hour for another hot dog and more baked beans.

5. I got to go home to a good dinner - I don't know where that kid is eating the rest of the week!

We're seeing a lot more kids since school let out - no breakfasts or lunches!

7. Heartbreaking - and enraging!

I guess Republicans feel that kid should go out and get a minimum wage job if he wants to eat!

A lot of the other people are pensioners with limited budgets and folks who can't work because of disabilities.

9. And they consider themselves Christians. That is what really annoys me.

 

Have they not read the NT at all? Just mind boggling.

11. Actually, Republicans

don't believe people should even have a minimum wage.

2. Makes your heart ache

A society can be measured by how it treats its frailest (most vulnerable) members.

I think a person can be measured by how s/he treats those less fortunate then her/him.

4. Horrifying. Simply unacceptable. But you are a good person for what you do and you care.

 

What a fucked up country we live in.

10. Some bailed-out bank execs only have two yachts

 

We all need to tighten our belts during this time of phoney crisis.

12. I wonder if you could persuade the church

to alter the policy when it comes to children under a certain age.

13. Thank you, hedgehog

for lending a helping hand. We know the food is there - it's the distribution that makes the difference.
