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.

Luckier kids? Who gives a shit. Nobody handed me shit except grief and bullshit. You think Bill Gates would have been motivated to rule the world if he hadn't been shoved in a couple of lockers? **** sakes, like adversity is the death knell of humanity. Suddenly the idea that you can earn is the most offensive thing you can teach. Kids should be taught to be resourceful and self reliant. They can earn their shit. They learn how to earn they will be the ones with the hot wife and successful career to show off at the 20 year reunion while the "lucky" ones will have grown into Al Bundy types.

Maybe you should post another irrelevant thread that nobody gives **** about. You could add to your collection, dipshit.

I appreciate the fact that someone posts new topics in here. So what if some of them don't generate a lot of responses?

Apparently you're too dumb to understand the concept of a kid who wasn't fed before school and doesn't have money for lunch either. I give up.
