Won't Someone Think Of The Families?!

How often do we hear that the family is the basic unit of society? That all political parties and all politicians are in favor of family values? More times than I can shake a ten foot pole at I can tell you; and usually it makes me suspect that whatever else is in the statements of those politicians is being sugar-coated so we don't notice the rat poison that's really being delivered like a judo chop to the solar plexus of our country.
And I'm right about that.

Imagine my surprise, then, when congress recently came out against families! Of course, they're portraying it as being concerned for children (won't someone think of the children?!) as a smoke screen, but it's awfully easy to see through it.
  • Because there are kids from poor families, we give them free food at school.
  • Kids who get free food at school have the stigma of getting free food at school, while the other kids have to bring or pay for their own.
  • We must erase the stigma of being poor, so no one will worry about being poor any more, so let's just give every kid free food - at least in Detroit, apparently.
  • This makes the job of the schools that much easier, too. After all, it's much easier to feed kids than to educate them, so the teachers' unions should be happy.
  • Now that poverty is no longer stigmatized, we won't have to worry about people looking for jobs to get out of that situation.
  • That means we don't have to create extra jobs, and that the unemployment rate will drop dramatically as hardly anyone will be trying to get a job!
  • It also means that kids won't have to worry about whether they have meals with their families, since their family won't have any food - they'll just eat with their indoctrinators teachers at the training facility school every day.
  • This will make it easier for them, when they're parents, as they won't feel guilty that they aren't providing food for their families, since that's not their responsibility anyway.
If you're a moron; and I'm not.
