Republican Denial of Global Warming is Starving School Children Across the Country
Back-to-back snowstorms caused by the Republicans refusing to accept man made global warming and pass Cap and Trade Legislation is literally starving thousands of children in the Mid-Atlantic States.
Marla Caplon the food services supervisor for Montgomery County Public Schools is worried about how would student’s eats? Caplon said “the two snowstorms that pummeled the region, leaving more than 3 feet of snow in some areas, deprived tens of thousands of children from Virginia to Pennsylvania of the free or reduced-price school lunch that may be their only nutritious meal of the day.” What, because of school closings these students are now going to starve. What about the parents; aren’t they responsible for feeding their own children. I forgot, according to Hillary it takes a village to raise a child so now it takes a school system to feed one!
If only those Wascally Wepublicans would have accepted the fact global warming was our fault and passed Cap and Trade these poor kids wouldn’t be starving today! In addition to the school closings the nonprofits that try to meet the need when school is not in session also closed their doors for much of the week, leaving many families looking at bare cupboards. So if the schools can’t feed the children and the non profits can’t feed the kids according to Caplon, then the kids starve. Good God; how did we ever get to this point in today’s society. The parents chose to have the kids and it’s the parent’s responsibility to take care of them not the schools and not the non profits!
Caplon put the number of children at risk at 43,000! The programs that were cancelled because of the insensitive Republicans provide free breakfast, lunches and bags of staple foods to take home for the weekend. Did you realize you were providing free breakfasts and lunches for the children of families you are already providing with food stamps to feed themselves and their children? This to me is incredulous; no wonder childhood obesity is a problem in this country!
In addition to the figures cited by Caplon, Philadelphia public schools provide nearly 86,000 free lunches every day; Baltimore, provides an estimated 50,000; the District of Columbia, accounts for 32,000 each day. That’s a total of 168,000 free lunches plus the 43,000 admitted to by Caplon for a whopping 211,000 starving children thanks to the Republicans refusal to accept the Global Warming Premise and pass Cap and Trade!
Remember that old saying there’s no such thing as a free lunch, well nationwide; about 19.4 million students received free lunches on a typical school day last year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. So if you look at this crisis on a nationwide basis, because of the Republicans absolute refusal to accept the premise of manmade global warming and do something about it by passing Cap and Trade 19.4 million school aged children are going hungry!
