    What Are We Becoming - Sickening

    - Woman lives in under-privileged area

    - Lots of hungry kids

    - Woman partners with Catholic Church to feed kids a free lunch each day

    - Township wants to shut her down – activity illegal

    - Is this really what we are becoming???

    Philadelphia woman faces $600-a-day fine for feeding needy neighborhood kids | Fox News

    I hope the voters fire the pasty-faced old fart that is too dang lazy to give a darn!!!

    She should be "shut down", that is the Government's job to feed people. *Sarcasm*

    This seems to be a trend with Government these days, they want to have their hand in everything and control all. We need to get these Jack Booted thugs out of office and like now.

    Perhaps we should take up a collection to help cover those "administrative fees" so this wonderful woman can continue feeding the kids. It might even generate a little *good* PR for responsible gun owners ;)

    We could call it "Project AAAH" (Armed Americans Against Hunger)

    It is sad , but yes, this is what we are becomeing, lets send the money overseas, and let our own go hungry.....let our eldery do without, our vetereans do without. it is time we take america back, my theory is VOTE, VOTE VOTE VOTE. AND I will not vote for encumbants.....it is time for a lot of new faces.
    I wish there were a way we could get our real leaders back, or like minded....lets not stop the American Dream, even for those who want it, but lets stop hindering americans, by showing favoritism to those who show up at our borders with their hand out, by borrowing money from China or whoever will lend it to us, just so we can give it out in aid to other contires.... there is so much nonsense going on in Washington, I honestly think that it is the normal there, and there is not a lot that can honestly be done...other than VOTE !!!

    Ya know, I've been banging the "Let's vote 'em all out" gong for a looong time... and that's certainly a good start....

    but here's something else to consider....

    All the little "plebes" that do the government's bidding... All the administrators that enforce the laws and the codes and the programs the elected representatives pass into being for our "common good". Most of these guys aren't elected... they're appointed... and many of them have been appointed by administrations long gone... But they stay in their little fiefdoms... and are truly the "power behind the throne" the mini prime ministers... in charge of various little divisions of government... Zoning... public welfare ...streets... parks... sanitary... animal control... et cetera... et cetera... et cetera...

    They wield a huge amount of power, they insulate the "Lords" of the city, county, state, and country from the masses of serfs who must comply or be "put in the stocks" for their crimes against "society"... like feeding the children without a permit...

    This article.. and the video... actually brought a tear to my eye... and all I could see in that pasty fasted plebe was a Pharisee of old....

    Sickening... NO... Reviling... nauseating... disheartening...

    and the following from thesaurus dot com:
    abominable, animal, appalling, awful, beast, bestial, detestable, disgusting, dreadful, frightful, ghastly, grim, grisly, gross*, gruesome, hateful, horrendous, horrid, loathsome, macabre, monstrous, morbid, nasty, odious, offensive, repellent, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, shocking, sick, sickening, terrible, terrifying, ugly, uncomely, unsightly, weird

    This is the only part of Ayn Randian theory I believe in.... it is not the people who undermine the free market system, it is these jackwagons.

    and again, you might take a look at the book in my sig line... this is what is happening to America.

    I'm of the opinion that the help-chain should go as follows: family - friends - churches - NPOs. I don't believe the government should belong there. I don't believe the role or responsibility of the government is to "take care of" anyone, but only to provide the opportunity for people to take care of themselves and each other.

    This story is disheartening but not surprising. This lady represents competition for the government and that cannot be tolerated.

    I can't wait to see how this one ends.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    My guess is that the woman that's feeding the kids has already received more than enough donations to make certain she can file for the "variance" and feed a lot more kids as well... or she soon will have received enough... and, of course Uncle Sam will be there with his hand out for the vig (also known as taxes) for the money she receives... because she is not a Non-Profit 501(c)...

    It's the Lawyers that create the problems. They have created a tangled web of laws and then they get paid to decipher them. Then they sue people who don't abide by them. Changes happen at a snails pace no matter who the 'figure head' is who gets voted into office.
