Every day, the Rushpubliscum Party takes us closer and closer to that land with that guy that Chimpy said he loathed so much ‘cuz he let his own people starve so he could spend money on guns.
Midwestern farmers pinched by drought have had to wait for relief because Rushpubliscums want to use a relief bill to slash food stamps, which are the only source of a decent meal for more and more Americans. And, how, do you ask, does this tie into what we saw happen in North Korea? I’m glad you asked that question. I’m always ready to explain what I say.
But first, let’s see what is happening to children all across America.
Three out of five public school teachers in Maryland say they have students who regularly come to school hungry because they are not getting enough to eat at home, according to a new survey.
The national survey from the nonprofit group Share Our Strength, to be released Thursday in Prince George’s County, also found that students who are hungry have lower academic performance and suffer from health issues and behavior problems.
“When students are hungry and distracted, they’re not learning,” U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan in a statement. “To set kids up for academic success, we must make sure they’re getting the healthy food they need at breakfast and lunch so they can concentrate in the classroom throughout the day.”
The nonprofit group, which seeks to end hunger among school-age children, surveyed 1,000 elementary and middle school teachers nationwide for the report on hunger. An oversampling was taken of teachers in Colorado, Maryland, Arkansas and Los Angeles.
