“"We had kids that had never tried a banana before," Hays said. "It's culture shock for these kids."

Where the hell are the parents? I'm all for a healthier country and the amount of money this will save over the years is nearly incalculable. But why aren't parents feeding their kids healthy FIRST - instead of the schools and government picking up the slack?”

“I'm going to take a leap here, but I gather that 98% of politicians are not equipped to debate science. That's why we have...what are they called???? Oh, yeah, scientists. That's why we fund colleges and have science courses so we can actually learn something about the world around us or, at the very least, ask good and pointed questions. But if politicians won't listen to scientists, who WILL they listen to? Oh, yeah, the corporate donors to their campaigns, many of whom don't want anything to do with science or scientists.”

“So all these cops are there to protect a huge corporation worth billions. I'm sure they could afford a broken window or two. Why aren't these cops arresting the bankers and executives who drove this country into a recession? They should be on Wall Street - not pushing back against people wanting a minimum wage.”

“How's that drinking water, Richard? Those roads you drive on? How about that car you drive? What about that military? Was your education terrible? Looking forward to your social security check? Is this government incompetent sometimes? Yes. Could it be run better? Yes. But this constant drum beat that our government is terrible and we need less of it and nothing works is just a plain lie told to us by the corporate overlords who want to demolish any and all regulations while they frack our ground and spill toxins into our water and dirty up our air and load up our "food" with GMO's so they don't spoil and ruin their profit.”

“Well, there was footage of a rally on Washington where Fox News cut in footage of a different rally to imply that more people were there. There was the time when they creatively cut an Obama speech to make him sound bad and then said they'd show the entire clip, but then still showed the edited version. There was the time they had graphs adding up to 110%. Most recently they posited that Obama didn't do anything about the VA in 2008 when he wasn't even president. Go to mediamatters.org - I'm sure they've got more.”

“"Scott's push to test welfare recipients and state workers has come under suspicion because the healthcare chain he founded prior to becoming governor is in the drug-testing business. Scott's controlling shares in the company were transferred to a trust in the name of his wife, according to the Palm Beach Post."

Seems to me this is still a conflict of interest.”

“Those panels went out the door when obama refuses to work with congress. The mainstream media carries only the obama side of things. And only Fox carries both sides. So people generally believe what the mainstream say because they have more listeners while Fox is on cable.”

“What bothers me about a person like Palin, just like Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity and others is that even when they say something that is patently offensive, you know darn well they're never going to apologize for it. They'll say they were "misquoted" or that they were "misunderstood" or that it "came out wrong." But actually, you know, own up to it and say: "I'm sorry." Not going to happen. We need more people in this world who own up to their faults and less people you dismiss them.”
