from 1990 to 2005 the percentage of students recieving free or reduced lunches at school increased from 27% to 75% in the Roanoke school district. I
got a feeling that if you checked out you own school district, you mind find a similar increase. this tells me alot more that anything the government
is gonna tell me... the jobs being created are not replacing the wages that are being lost. more and more people's incomes are falling below the
level that is needed to be self sufficient, thus more need for public handouts...and thus more people not paying taxes to help pay for these handouts.
meanwhile, more join the status or wealthy, or near wealthy, to balk and complain about all that taxmoney the government steals from them that is
wasted on these government handouts. programs that are now really in jeopordy due to our lovely out of this world deficits. over 75% of the kids in
my public school system have parents that seek help to pay their lunches.....that tells me all I need to know! the rich are getting richer, and the
rest are getting poorer.
