Fucking elitist bastards.

"My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don't think too much further than that. And so what you've got to do is you've got to curtail that type of behavior. They don't know any better."

Andre Bauer, Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina

He was comparing Government assitance programs to feeding stray animals.

Not only just that. But he was saying poor parents of students who eat free or reduced price meals in school cafeterias should be required to attend parent-teacher conferences, or else the students should go without.

...The only problem with that is that sometimes, poor parents are required to work 1 or 2 or 3 jobs, trying to get by, and can't attend those conferences period. I do believe parents, poor or rich or in between (though the in betweeners are fading away more and more) should attend parent teacher conferences if ABLE. They should cancel social events for it, because it's about their kids. BUT if they have to work, they have to work. Because they have to pay the bills. Make sure their kids have heat, and water, and a fucking roof over their head.

So yes, even in two parent households, sometimes people have to work so much they wouldn't be able to do something so important. And so the CHILDREN would suffer. Yeah. That's smart. That's you're fucking compassionate conservatism right there.
