    While lying is a sin, I’m sure they aren’t above trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes to meet their agenda. They want to reclaim the “7 Mountains”, which are government, religion, media, family, business, education, and arts and entertainment. Sarah Palin was/is one and so is Betsy Devo or whatever her name is. We would have Xian madrasas and destruction of the earth, as well as other animals. In short, it is Xian Sharia- government, education, etc and there’s been mention of forcing kids to pray in school (that’s a taste of it) and crap like “kneel to the cross and not to the national anthem” B.S. They want to be governed by the Bible or their version of it and everyone has to bow and coo to that version, even Lutherans, Episcopalians, and Catholics, who they don’t consider Xian, even though they are. I can find more if that’s not enough to comprehend what could happen under He Who Is Not Worth His Name.

    Here’s a few links to give you an idea of the hell they would/could create:

    Well that is a scary thought that some wannabe theocrats are among the T rump loyalists.  OTOH, T rump will only be loyal to them, to the extent that it helps keep him in power.  But the only dominionism that he really cares about, is his own dominion over all.  If Jesus, at some point comes riding from the sky on a white stallion, I don’t think T rump will appreciate being upstaged.

    They think he was sent by god, so that’s about as close as him having a dominion he will get, which maybe a long ways.

    No the bigger insult is that my grandson and other kids won’t be getting the nutrition they need.

    What about getting fed at home? If a kid doesn’t even have that then they have much bigger problems than missing out on fruit at school.

    They health of a generation is just a joke to you. Awesome. #weredoomed

    Crappy school lunches play very little role in the youth obesity epidemic.

    Get fed at home during the noon hour? No kid is at home during the noon hour. They are in school. So you propose they skip lunch and only have breakfast and dinner, which would be at home for all kids? Nice. Kids don’t get lunch and go hungry until they get home at the end of the day, with no fruits, veggies, or anything else. That’s just cruel.

    Conversations like this usually reveal prejudices quickly. The solutions to systemic societal problems are solved by the prejudice person because they imagine a poor hungry child simply going home and finding a warm kitchen filled with  caring people who understand their needs. They believe the stories of people reading by candle light, or riding their bicycle to the computer lab, or whatever hero’s journey someone went on, can apply to everyone, they just need to motivate themselves. I feel bad for people who think that way, and for all the people in their lives who contributed to who they are, but remain unappreciated.

    Are you suggesting that Oneguy has been positively effected in his life by some humanistic, empathic types, and he is just disregarding them?

    I mean it’s the parent’s responsibility to provide “nutrition”, not the school’s.  If parents are relying on schools to feed their kids they are unfit to even have kids living with them.

    School lunches are just garbage they have to serve because it’s not feasible in today’s world for kids to go home in the middle of the day to eat. They don’t have to be that good for you.

    What a pile of bullshit. It’s the parent’s job to feed their kids. Not fucking complicated at all.

    Meals at school should be nutritious too, because it does no good to feed the kids junk and expect them to learn, as well as grow healthfully. The meals don’t have to be garbage.

    Or else….what? Do you even realize what you are saying?

    Let the kids starve, while they are trying to learn so that they can get a job and provide food for their kids? I hope you do know that poor nutrition is detrimental to learning.

    In the richest country in the world, you would deny a meal to US school kids who someday must become bread-winners themselves?

    You believe mankind should go back to the jungle and “survival of the fittest”,  in this case the “richest”? Is that your interpretation of Capitalism?

    I suspect that Oneguy is a good parent.  I think he’s just not a good humanist and that he doesn’t want to be. On the spectrum of loyalty to, and concern for, family, tribe, larger community, nation, world, I don’t think he goes all the way across. Family, I think, yes.  Tribe, I think, yes.  The larger community, I think, not so much. Nation, yes.  World, no.

    Based on your psychological profile assessment of Oneguy, I have to say he in pretty sane. The larger community in a conservative monolithic culture like China or Japan, is just a bigger version of the family. Chances are folks share the same values. In the US, all bets are off and it’s best to mind your own business when you are outside your neck of the woods. The nation is real to an American. The world is an idea.

    I have never questioned Oneguy’s sanity, just his humanity.
