Its a free country. That doesnt mean you can have whatever you want at no cost.

Ok, blue, go ahead and be a miserable SOB by yourself over in the corner. It's a free country...at least until we're bought by BP and Monsanto.

Nice spin dick. Did you learn that from Jay Carney or Obama himself. By the way, if you are so jealous of oil companies, why don't you invest in them. They make money, you make money. Or maybe you can drill for oil yourself and refine it yourself for your car. That would beat the heck out of being a hair dresser. Just saying.

SONJACK and DickieVeesHairdresser, do all the "do-gooder" deeds your heart desires. Just don't expect that someone else might not feel the same way.

It's a shame some people take more time to argue about feeding kids breakfast than they do noticing big oil and Wall Street robbing us blind. I'd rather my dollar goes to feed a kid than to feed a greedy corporation.

"SO your saying its just fine for big business not to pay taxes?"

Since you feel so strongly that it is wrong, why aren't you working to change the IRS rules?

"Have you ever stopped to think maybe in this crappy town there aren't many decent paying jobs or any at all. Were still recovering from the bush disaster years. I'm sure you didn't feel the pain everyone else did."

I am well aware... Please explain to me again why I must provide food for someone else who does not wish to be responsible for their children eating.

"If you don't want to pay taxes don't live here."

What I pay or don't pay in taxes has nothing to do w/ the fact that lunches are being handed out w/ out the slightest bit of a requirement from anyone. How did we get here? My parents taught me to be responsible for myself, and not have the government provide for me.

SO your saying its just fine for big business not to pay taxes? Just like a true republic. I work just as hard as you and I am not poor but im sure not going to cry over paying taxes. After all were taking about free lunches for all rich and poor. These are kids not adults. Yes the government waste money just like all the programs for the farmers. If you don't want to pay taxes don't live here.

"Why don't johndeere and blue pay all of us back for there hand outs?"

The only handout I have received is for taking farm land out of production and returning it to native prairie. The payments on that will be for two more years yet the land will be "natural" forever...

Truth is you don't have a clue about what it takes to operate a business. You just want to complain because the democrats seem to paint a target on the backs of hard-working people.

"What about that and you don't have to pay taxes on things you buy farm related shut up."

No business pays sales tax on business-related items, which includes BIG OIL, AUTO, TOBACCO, MEDICAL, et al.

Well sonjack, I have never gotten a hand out and I have worked hard for everything I have and very proud of it. Im tired of the ones that think the world owes them something!!!!! World owes you and me nothing!!!! Free country You can do any job you want, and make as much as you want, but dont think you can do very little and have what the worker has. If you think the farmer gets alot, go and buy a farm and BE A FARMER!!!!! NO ONE STOPPING YOU!!!! THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY HAND OUTS TO ANYBODY IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY EXCEPT THE HANDICAP AND THE UNFORTUNATE. DONATIONS ONLY AND UR CHOICE TO WHOM AND IF YOU CAN GET DONATIONS FOR UR CAUSE, GOOD FOR YOU, BUT KEEP HANDS OUT OF MY POCKET FOR THINGS I DONT BELIEVE OR WANT TOO!!!!

OK Dickie you pay for all free handouts!! Keep your hands out of my pockets. Lets blame our so called elected officials that gives all our money away. People take anything thats free with someone elses money. Lets TRY to TEACH government officials we are done paying for the LAZY and NO GOODS!!! NO MORE HAND OUTS!!!!! YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR OWN LIFE STYLE AND ACTIONS.
