Spent a career studying military regulations and the Courts-Martial manual differentiating between what is required, recommended or what is permissible.

 

So can we dispense with attempting to take the thread off-topic or obfuscating it?

 

Besides I was stating my opinion.


Yes, you did make a post - the content of which stated opinion. (unsupported by valid and verified fact)

 

I'm permitted to state my opinion that the content of your post containing an opinion is bogus.

This is not a court of law but a discussion site, so the third degree isn't necessary.  But during their administration much was written about children not eating the meals she, through political influence as First Lady, had directed to be served in school lunchrooms. 

 

 



In other words - you want us to believe your unverified statement is "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth"?

 

Not sorry a bit - there is no overwhelming reason to believe the content of your posts.

And it sounds as if you are attempting to twist this around into a political statement.  No one said that hungry kids are throwing food away, but that there are those who receive subsidized lunches are wasteful.

 

Another liberal who attempts to twist other's posts to fit their needs.

As you may know, I volunteer a lot and have some knowledge of who is getting subsidized food. 


I doubt that since volunteers in school lunchrooms doesn't have access to that sort of information since it's privileged.  In any event, its not exactly knowing who is getting subsidized food, but those who are wasteful. 

 

And I don't 'may' know that you volunteer a lot.

Here are some thoughts for all about Alexandria and what we hear she supports. First: This country now has the largest debt it has ever had. If you could take away the Regan, and Bush Tax cuts (which were not paid for) our country would be closer to a zero debt than ever before so that shows all what unpaid tax cut do. Trump did not listen. What Alexandria and her crew did was take some existing proposals and use them in what they support. They did not develop them. You just saw a large employer pull out of NYC. That is 25,000 less jobs they will have. The people in her Dist. supported bringing that Co to NYC with its jobs by a large margin. Go check the polls. She will have to answer for that loss next election. She really has shown very little new. So far she has not even opened an office in her Dist.

Then again that’s about normal for trump supporters...they’ll just make up whatever justifies their position...has nothing to do with the truth!

Have they went hungry??
