Are the farmers of Greenbriar County against school lunches for hungry little children?

Are they like that HYPOCRITE Republican Delegate Ray Canterbury from Greenbriar County.

Is Delegate Ray Canterbury, the Second Vice Chair of the Agriculture Committee, against the recipients of Federal Livestock Subsidies to farmers in Greenbrier County, totaling $1,318,000.00 from 1995-2011?

"The Fox News special explained that one contributing factor to the massive expansion of the food stamp program is the crony capitalism that has cropped up around the anti-poverty program. "

Despite the $15 trillion U.S. taxpayers have spent since the war on poverty’s inception, poverty in America is largely unchanged. This week, figures from the U.S. Census Bureau revealed that nearly 50 million Americans live below the federal poverty line.

Massive Government FAIL!

But we want to keep spending MORE so Democraps can PANDER to their voter base while the Crony Capitalists PROFIT from their connections to the Demoncratic Party.

In 1969, just 2.8 million Americans received food stamps. Today, over 47 million Americans are on food stamps. The Fox News special explained that one contributing factor to the massive expansion of the food stamp program is the crony capitalism that has cropped up around the anti-poverty program.

Soda makers, for example, bag an estimated $4 billion a year in taxpayer money through the food stamp program. Efforts to kill the so-called “soda subsidy” have been met with fierce resistance and lobbying by the soda industry.

companies that administer Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards profit when the welfare rolls swell. Since 2004, for example, JP Morgan, which donated $808,799 to Barack Obama in 2008, has made at least $560,492,596 running EBT programs for 18 states.

Chokingchicken you friggen idiot, your homboyz CANT FIND JOBS under the piece of crap President you voted for.

In March 2013, 88,000 New Jobs were created.

However, 663,000 LOST THEIR JOBS, or just gave up looking!!!!

The POOR are SO MUCH MORE worse off under Obama than under Bush! Bush EMPLOYMENT rates and TOTAL EMPLOYED are UNMATCHED in the HISTORY of this country.

Total employed under Owebama as the WORST since 1979 under the OTHER IDIOT, Saint James Carter.

Bring from facts for a change so I don't have the mop the floor with your sorry azz.

Do some of you actually think that people would rather be on food stamps than have a job?

Has it been replaced with "Love Thy Money"?

@WaterBuffaloRider,

Democrats have proved quite effective at killing non - Christians. Especially non - military! From CNN, "The study by Stanford Law School and New York University's School of Law calls for a re-evaluation of the practice, saying the number of "high-level" targets killed as a percentage of total casualties is extremely low -- about 2%."

From CNS, "For the total 2,053 fallen troops in Afghanistan since the United States began military operations in October 2001, 1,484 have died during the Obama administration, meaning approximately 72 percent of U.S. casualties in Afghanistan have occurred during President Obama’s first term."

No blood on Democratic hands eh WBR?

No work, no eat. This used to be the way in the former Free country called the USA in the 20th century. Before all the "free" Govt. give a ways started. Most did some form of earning their way. Others who were un able were given food, meals from Churches and other charities. Today we live in a different country. Today our young are being taught by the State that everyone is entitled to "Free" everything re guard less of their personal situation as long as they support the State. And if someone else has more, through earning it themselves, they are somehow evil and should have their stuff taken away to support the masses.. If our country stays on this path, things are not going to end well for most. "The problem with socialism is that at some point you run out of other peoples money"

Republicans are willing to provide meals to American youths, plus uniforms, if they are old enough to march into oil rich countries and kill non-Christian people.

How much do we, as taxpayers, pay for Republican from Greenbriar County, Delegate Ray Canterbury's lunch per day ?

Does he really eat that much?

How much does a little first grade girl eat ?

We should be so thankful that we have such a great hard working man as this representing the business interests of The Great State of West Virginia.

THE WHOLE WORLD IS NOW WATCHING !

ARE YOU READY FOR THAT republican delegate ray canterbury?

Delegate Ray Canterbury sounds like someone who I would want to have live next door to me.

A compassionate businessman.

Did Delegate Ray Canterbury ever take a single dime from the government he is sworn to represent.

I hope not, because he sounds like a wonderful human being.

Pulled himself up from his bootstraps.

How does he sleep at night?

Oh yeah, counting his earned income.

"The National School Lunch Program supports student nutrition in over 101,000 schools and residential facilities. It provides free and reduced priced meals to low-income children before school, during school, after school, and over the summer. In fiscal year 2012, federal school nutrition programs underwrote more than five billion lunches served to over 31 million students. Total funding for all nutrition programs sums to more than $14 billion in both cash and commodity payments. School nutrition programs are one of the largest federal funding streams to schools."

"Students who do not qualify for free or reduced price lunch can purchase slightly subsidized meals, but these lunches are considered “paid” because the student shoulders most of the cost. The lunch program subsidizes each “paid” meal between 23 and 25 cents to offset administrative costs."

It is the liberal politicans way to pretend that there are people who want children to go hnurgy and say so even with tears in his eyes. Why do children go hungry? Is there not enough food? Are there not enough state programs to feed kids? Did the food stamp program end and we didn't know it? Are there enough charities to feed kids? No, the answer to why children suffer is that they have horrible parents who use all their resources for booze and drugs. So now, instead of dealing with the parents who torture thier kids and leave them hungry we are going to invent yet another way to not deal with the basic problem. The only reason that any child in America goes to bed or school hungry is that the left wing dream of a social service system will not deal with bad parents, who abuse and neglect their children. Pretty soon we will have a program to go to homes and make sure kids take a bath, or go to bed on time. Deal with the parents that the welfare system created and hunger ends.

"Delegate Ray Canterbury spoke against the bill, repeating that there is no such thing as a free lunch and encouraging kids to develop personal responsibility. "I think it would be a good idea if perhaps we had the kids work for their lunches: trash to be taken out, hallways to be swept, lawns to be mowed, make them earn it," the Greenbrier County Republican said. "If they miss a lunch or they miss a meal they might not, in that class that afternoon, learn to add, they may not learn to diagram a sentence, but they'll learn a more important lesson."

What an arrogant S_O_B !

I thought Senator Manchin said that "Buckwild" was giving West Virginia its bad name.

WRONG!
