Re: "More schools serve students dinner as demand expands" (TNT, 1-15).
Awful parents are to blame for hungry kids.
As Americans, we already give them free food stamps to pay for their children's breakfast. Further, we have instituted free breakfast in schools, just to make sure their children are fed. School breakfast is there just in case the parents are so incompetent they can't make food stamps work.
Kids still show up for school hungry. Why? Because their parents are so disorganized and uncaring that they get their kids to school too late and unfed.
No amount of free food by way of food stamps or free breakfasts can solve the main underlying problem: awful parents. They literally let their kids starve instead of shifting their lazy behinds.
No amount of government assistance can overcome this. Indeed, when government consistently relieves people of responsibility for their behavior throughout their lives, it teaches them the precise lack of caring that achieves starving kids.
And "progressives" call these government programs "caring." Government "cares" so much, it permanently teaches people how to be irresponsible.
