No Such Thing as a Free Lunch

Unless, of course, you're a congressman:

http://tinyurl.com/jwwkhj9

WASHINGTON -- Weeks after Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) made headlines for suggesting low-income students sweep cafeteria floors to learn there's "no such thing as free lunch," Savannah TV station WSAV 3 looked at the "free lunches" Kingston himself has received as a member of Congress.

There's no precise way to count the number of lunches Kingston has enjoyed on taxpayer dollars, but the station took a look at expense reports and disclosures to uncover staggering figures from the congressman's three years in office.

According to the station's investigation, Kingston and his staff have expensed $4,182 worth of "meals for business purposes," and recorded $4,289.33 in free meals from third-party interest groups, including the Congressional Institute and the Georgia Bankers Association.

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, Kingston has traveled to four continents, racking up $24,313 in per diem allowances. While the allowances were allotted for more than just lunch money, midday meals were included.

When WSAV 3 asked Kingston whether he believes members of Congress "work hard," the congressman "defended his work ethic," saying he works 60 hours to 70 hours a week.

"That's what representative democracy is about, is members going to Washington, but coming home and answering the tough questions," Kingston told the station.

Beyond taxpayer dollars, Kingston has enjoyed many free meals on the campaign trail. WSAV 3 reported $145,391.26 in expensed meals and catering for campaign events, $26,066.45 of which was charged at the Republican Club of Capitol Hill, an exclusive, members only venue.

The subject is very clear. Quit dick dancing around. Do you or do you not think kids who don't have lunch money should be required to sweep the floors in order to eat?

No Republican who even wants to sniff a national office, or who is even a decent human being for that matter... would TOUCH such a dumbass solution/subject.

If the Republicans want another 8 years of Democrat rule, then just start talking about some stupid stuff like this, its gauranteed irrelevancy... and if they believe it but try to hide it, it will be smelled like a fart in a car.

Greed simultaneously bolsters and ****s up this nation all at once.

ps - its only just a bit past midnight you old fogies, wake up and argue your stupid point.

You are the only kid who was trying to earn 'walking cash'.



Walking cash. Are you 60+?

I'm just curious what virtues of hard work you all are teaching your children moving forward.

There's nothing I can find for you to do around our house, best go ask your neighbors what manual labor they have for your 'walking cash'.

Just an old saying I heard one time. It was referring to being close but not on the target. As in dick dancing around the target. That seems to be what he is doing. He keeps speaking to the virtues of hard work when he was young. I grew up poor and have gone through life needing to work hard for what I have. I just want him to answer the topic yes or no~

Yes. Worked the neighborhood for jobs. Raking leaves, lawn mowing, shoveling snow, dog walking, shit like that from the time I was about 8 years old. But apparently I'm wrong and the ****ing loser for it.

Nobody is saying anything of the sort. Simple question: Do you or do you not believe kids who come from families who cannot afford lunch should have to sweep the floors in order to eat?

Not as a requisite.

Which offends you more; the premise of the idea that people should be expected to earn their way or the policies that have created the current state of multi generational dependency that made these children, for all intents and purposes, wards of the state to begin with?

They are two entirely different subjects. If you have read anything from me you know I clearly stand on the belief people should make their own way. I am pretty conservative as far as dependency on the government. However anyone who thinks kids should sweep floors to earn their lunch if poor is an ****head who needs a ass whipping~
