Paul Ryan: Free School Lunch Means Poor Parents Don't Care About KidsRep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) said Thursday that liberals don't understand disadvantaged students would rather have parents who care for them than a free lunch at school.Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Ryan said Republicans offer their constituents "ideas" while Democrats offer a "full stomach and an empty soul."He then told an anecdote he said was relayed to him by Eloise Anderson, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's (R) Department of Children and Families secretary."She once met a young boy from a very poor family, and every day at school, he would get a free lunch from a government program," Ryan said."He told Eloise he didn’t want a free lunch. He wanted his own lunch, one in a brown-paper bag just like the other kids," he continued. "He wanted one, he said, because he knew a kid with a brown-paper bag had someone who cared for him. This is what the left does not understand."SOURCEDid you bother to actually THINK about your words before they left that asshole you call a mouth? You're essentially telling poor kids, that if their parents aren't making them bagged lunches, that they don't love them. WHAT THE FLAMING FUCK. Also, anecdotal evidence much. Shit, WHY IS THIS EVEN AN ARGUMENT IN THE FIRST PLACE? How WARPED is your philosophy when you feel that you have to deny poor children FOOD or else it's somehow a violation of your principals?
Texas death row inmate Ray Jasper is scheduled to be put to death on March 19. He has written us a letter that, he acknowledges, "could be my final statement on earth." It is well worth your time.( 'You said that my perspective is different and therefore my words have a sort of value. Yet, you're talking to a young man that's been judged unworthy to breathe the same air you breathe.'Collapse )
Good morning, Communies! I give last night's episode five Meow Meow Beans! And I give HitFix's Alan Sepinwall one Bean for going to see a play last night instead of staying home to watch Community and more than 12 hours later still having failed to post a review. Now let's see what the reviewers who take their jobs seriously had to say!Matt Carter, cartermatt.com:There were so many great moments in here, from Jeff working with the frat guys to Abed making small talk to Britta throwing mustard on her face to appeal to the commoners. It was completely ridiculous, but also funny through and through. (A-)Brian Collins, Badass Digest:Last week's episode was praised for toning things down and focusing on characters instead of a high concept, so in Community's world, it actually makes perfect sense that they'd come back with an episode that pays homage to Zardoz, of all goddamn things. The great thing about the show is that it can swing back and forth like this without giving its fans whiplash - it's always done fine with both ends of the spectrum.Todd VanDerWerff, A.V. Club:Some of it is wildly funny. Some of it is impressively original. Some of it has a lot to say about social media culture and the ways we try to make ourselves look better on Facebook, Twitter, and the Internet in general. And some of it is just a mess.Gabrielle Moss, TV Fanatic:The playfulness of this half hour, the Community quotes, the social commentary, the part where Britta becomes a socialist revolutionary-cum-warlord--I feel like we're finally seeing this show bloom into the complicated, deranged flower that we planted five seasons ago. (4.8/5)Jared Russo, Geek Binge:This is a loaded episode, that can often times be deep, and has a constant string of interesting things to show and profound things to say, however ridiculous both can be. “App Development and Condiments” is outlandish and wildly entertaining from the get-go, and never lets up. (10/10)Ben Umstead, Twitch:Franky, this is as close as Dan Harmon-led Community can get to paint by the numbers. Which is probably less a knock and more a testament to just how good the show remains.Joe Matar, Den of Geek:I can see a lot of people finding this one flat out dumb (and there’s certainly an argument there). I even sort of feel like I’m betraying my standards for what makes a Community episode good (I thought the previous episode was the best of this season). But for whatever reason, the very fact that “App Development and Condiments” is (mostly) ungrounded and unabashedly ridiculous is what made it work for me. (4/5)Eric Goldman, IGN:Unfortunatey, the episode kind of petered out at the end. Britta successfully getting almost everyone on her side was somewhat abruptly undone, adding a sad note just a week after she seemed to be heading in a better direction. (7.6/10)PolarBear, Polar Bears Watch TV:The episode is certainly overstuffed, as it attempts to provide social commentary on whatever seems to come up; admittedly, this could use a few extra minutes to let the plot breathe a bit. However, the concept alone is already infectious, grabbing hold of the audience the same way MeowMeowBeenz grabs hold of the school. The show throws itself headfi
He liked it, so he put a huge vintage Cartier ring on it! Mary-Kate Olsen‘s engagement ring from Olivier Sarkozy has had us buzzing since the moment she debuted it in N.Y.C. Now we have new photos of her showing it off during Paris Fashion Week, as well as more details about the diamond-and-sapphire stunner.According to a StyleCaster source, the ring was chosen for Olsen at a Feb. 6 Sotheby’s auction, where it sold for $81,250. The Sotheby’s catalog description of the ring lists it as having a 4-carat European-cut center stone, plus 16 calibré-cut sapphires surrounding it and about 1.5 carats of diamonds forming the “petals” around the high-set stone. It dates from 1953 and was previously owned by “a Tennessee collector.”Olsen, 27, and Sarkozy, 44 -- half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy -- first stepped out together in 2012. Since then, they've been a frequent presence at basketball games in New York City, where they live together in a $6.25 million townhouse. This will be the former Full House star's first marriage, and Sarkozy's second. He was previously wed to Charlotte Bernard, with whom he has two kids, Julien, 12, and Margo, 10.SOURCE
