There is no “free” breakfast either


I recently had to register a grandchild for middle-school. The staff was all gushy about how all the kids could now get “free breakfasts” at the school.

They seemed puzzled at my look of displeasure.

First, it isn’t free. I am paying for it via taxes at the local, state, and federal level.

Next, this benefit comes from claiming lots of poor kids go to this school. So, I am to be happy that we now officially have more poverty? This school is in a quite wealthy community that is booming.

Also, it is a bit of a culture shock to be in an era where parents are not expected to feed their own kids. What are they still expected to do?
