Another Christian That Hates Poor People

In her June newsletter Republican State Representative Cynthia Davis tells you how she really feels about the poor. She states that the summer food program provided by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is a waste of money, the malnourished in Missouri are actually obese, and any problem that might exist is being caused by poor people going out dinner instead of preparing good home cooked meals.

Her articles is delivered in a "point-counterpoint" style. She pulls quotes from the report fromt he Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, and then delivers her own comments on them. For example, the subtitle of article states: "Current economic woes make Summer Food Service Program more important than ever. Program provides nutritious meals to young people throughout the state," and Rep. Davis counters:

The implication suggests that during a recession, parents don't give their children nutritious food. The reverse may be true. During hard times, many families find it even more important to pull together. Families may economize by choosing to not waste hard earned dollars on potato chips, ice cream, or Twinkies. Perhaps some families will buy more beans and chicken and less sweets.

That's the ticket! If only the lazy underfed would stop eating all of those potato chips, ice cream, and Twinkies!

"Anyone under 18 can be eligible? Can't they get a job during the summer by the time they are 16? Hunger can be a positive motivator. What is wrong with the idea of getting a job so you can get better meals?"

"Tip: If you work for McDonald's, they will feed you for free during your break."

Yes, she really said that. And workers at McDonalds don't get free food, the get a discount - if they can get a job there. And if they are over 16.

Are you hungry, and only 9 or 10 years old? Just wait a few more years! Maybe you can get a job at a fast food restaurant when you are older!

This little nugget was interesting. She starts out saying that probably no one in Missouri is actually hungry, it must be some kind of myth. Then she zig zags into saying that the problem is really obesity, that the malnourished in Misouri must be obese:

"While nobody is disputing the benefits of nutritious food, why the presumption that parents are not providing nutritious food for their children? Even if they are not, who created a new rule that says government must make up for any lack at home? The problem of childhood obesity has been cited as one of the most rapidly growing health problems in America. People who are struggling with lack of food usually do not have an obesity problem. Click here to read about obesity."

The link directs you to a video, which I presume you must read as she directs you to do, instead of watch.

Rep. Davis indicates that those lazy unemployed people can just stop eating out:

Most parents put their children first, even ahead of themselves no matter what. If parents are laid off, that doesn't mean they stop feeding their children, at least not any of the parents I know. Laid off parents could adapt by preparing more home cooked meals rather than going out to eat.

One might argue that preparing a home cooked meal on zero dollars can be a bit challenging. The statistics indicate that One in five children in Missouri currently live in hunger. I seriously doubt that the problem is being caused by poor people going out dinner instead of preparing home cooked meals. I think they would probably love some home cooked meals.

"The right way to solve this is with more education. If the problem is that parents do not know how to serve nutritious meals, let's help them learn how to do that."

So the answer is clear! Poor people are hungry because they are stupid and Uneducated. Food has nothing to do with it!

According to her official biography, she formerly owned the Back to Basics Christian Bookstore, so she knows all about how Jesus hated lazy poor people and how never gave away free food.

I'm willing to bet that none of Clown Car Christian Conservative Cynthia Davis's kids are are malnourished or living in poverty. And if they were, I am sure that she would gratful for any assistance she could get to feed them.

At the end of the article she has a section called "A Little Bit of Humor" with a joke called "Chronic Laziness":

The man told his doctor that he wasn't able to do all the things around the house that he used to do. When the examination was complete, he said, "Now, Doc, I can take it. Tell me in plain English what is wrong with me?"

"Well, in plain English," the doctor replied, "you're just lazy."

"Okay," said the man. "Now give me the medical term so I can tell my wife."

Get it? One in five children in Missouri currently live in hunger because poor people are lazy. What a hoot!

By the way, can you guess which lawmaker in Missouri now calling for a federal trial to prove Obama's citizenship? [ 2 ] Cynthia Davis, that's who! Rep. Cynthia Davis Action Figure Missouri lawmaker on child hunger scholarships for Stay-at-home-moms but not for Stay-at-home-dads

These child labor laws are undermining young people's initiative. Honest work would keep them out of trouble, like such as drugs and video gaming! Perhaps some if these underprivileged waifs might find gainful employment in the reality TV field? I hear that Kate Gosselin might soon be auditioning a replacement for disobedient Leah! Gosselin could provided these youngster with the discipline they so sorely need too, since she's not shy about dishing out the corporal punishment! Well at least they're not waterboarding the homeless, yet. ;)

Dr. Zaius -

I saw some mention of this on some brand X site and wondered if it was true. She's really a piece of work.

Oh, by the way: the value of the food -- even discounted -- is considered taxable income. That question came up at a National Payroll Association meeting I attended a while back, and the payroll tax experts said that because there is a dollar value, it has to be considered as income.



At Mon Jun 22, 01:27:00 PM, Blogger Seeing Eye Chick said...

Wow Dr Zaius you managed to make a Fuctard Monday Post. I am impressed. We have almost covered every day of the week now between us.

As a person who grew up profoundly poor during the Oil Bust in the Middle Southwest, I would just like to tell this woman to eat my shit.

1. Poor people buy what they can afford. Coupons are for Mac and Cheese, chips, twinkies, hohos, and other high starch, low protein, high sugar combos that are laden with High Fructose Corn Syrup and preservatives. Thats why these items are so cheap, they keep for ever, so stores and other distributors can stock up for years on some items and periodically have sales to move them to make room for more stockpiling. Hamburger Helper, Kraft Cheese and Macaroni, Biscuit mix and hamburger meat {that is periodically recalled due to E-coli and high processed meats like Sandwhich meat, that is periodically recalled due to listeria are also high in bad fats.

As for working at McDonalds. I have worked there, at Long John Silvers, and various greasy Spoons. You do not get free meals period and often you are penciled in at the last minute. The boss doesnt care if you have childcare issues, Marburg virus or are wearing a cast either. Get to work you lazy lump or we will give your job to that other non HS/NonCollege Grad. You can leave your kid at the libary or in the car. Many waiting jobs pay below minimum wage and you are expected to make up the difference in tips. And because you are part time always--even if technically you work the hours, you get no health care benefits unless someone accidentally knocks you into the fryer or locks you in the deep freeze over night. That means your kids are unemployed. You get no childcare services to speak of and if you find someone who will do it for free, better use your half hour on the net at the public library to see if that person is a registerred sex offender--otherwise you could loose your kids to the state. Or just take your chances locking them in that roach motel you call an apartment.

I know some people think that poor people could garden. Um, yea that requires a yard. And since most poor people work 2 or 3 jobs to keep the electric on, they have a choice. Garden OR sleep at some point.

That fat cunt should take a flying leap off a short pier. She is an arrogant scum sucking harpie who is of as this moment stealing my Air and I want it back.

I meant to say, "That means your kids are uninsured."

Got to love it when Christians are so Christ-like.

Let them eat cake, indeed.

I heard that in some states they have Celebrity "Roasts" and that some participants are politicians.... Maybe 'Roast Politicians' are the answer!

So... what kinda garnish goes best with BBQ republican?

At Mon Jun 22, 03:23:00 PM, Blogger Dean Wormer said...

I think it's more expensive to eat well, personally. Fish in particular never seems to be on sale.

Side issue- school lunches. I'm sure Mrs. Davis would be happy to add extra funds to federal school lunch supplements so they can serve better food.

The whole story makes me want to vomit. What a horrible horrible individual.

Starve the children to motivate the parents.

I think I saw that in work camp diary once.

I don't really know what to say. Just when I think the GOP can't get any dumber some GOP fuckwit steps up and owns it and lowers the bar. I kept reading and hoping it but it kept getting incrementally dumber and dumber. All I can say is I really feel for the people of Missouri. This woman pathetic.

While working at McDonald's, they can contribute to the Godless obesity epidemic, too!

Liberals think everyone should eat!

I bet Fox News loves this woman. She's just the type of God loving, flag waving mom-of-many who shows the world how it's done.

Well you know Missouri also provided us with John Ashcroft, so maybe there is some kind of gene pool problem there.

The man who draped a cloth over the bared breast of the Justice statue.

I wonder if he showers in the dark too.

Dis-f*ck-inggusting is too nice a word for the harpy.. but I love the picture at the top.

I hope there's a lazy, starving bear out there that just happens to poke through her garbage cans and, upon finding nothing, barges into the house and has him or herself a nice, hot meal.

That last comment has me throwing up again, and just when I'd stopped for a moment after reading about this hideous soul-less and clueless woman.

Great post, Dr. Zaius. Disgusting, but great.

Maybe it's time the poor just eat their children? Solves two problems, doesn't it?

I thought that Aerosmith had a better idea. Eat the Rich.

Phew! And these are the sort of people that always pretend this is a meritocracy. So let her privileged children work their way up. Let them start NOW at some shoe factory in in Asia earning $5 a day and they can eat during their once daily 5 minute break.

Jang-chub Ozer: Indeed! Are there no work houses? Are there no prisons? I am against giving poor people free water, though... ;o)

Tengrain: Ack! Then we are definitely under taxing the poor and hungry!

Seeing Eye Chick: She thinks that the poor can live on wish sandwiches. (You know what a wish sandwich is, don't you? That's when you have two pieces of bread, and you WISH you had some meat.)

Seeing Eye Chick: I know what you meant. I too hate having a low paying job.

aironlater: Jesus said that the loaves and the fishes are only for paying customers!

okjimm: The best garnish for BBQ republicans? Humble pie and just deserts. ;o)

Dean Wormer: The problem with fish is that there is never enough tartar sauce... I think that if Mrs. Davis were to add extra funds to federal school lunch supplements, it would be for nutritious vegetables like ketchup.

Seeing Eye Chick: Yep. She is indeed a piece of work.

Zirgar: I know what you mean... They keep topping themselves in stupidity and inhumanity. It's like a contest!

Anna: I only hate Christians that have no idea what the philosphy of the religion is about. And the ones that park badly. Those are annoying, too.

Comrade Kevin: Indeed, you are right. "Liberals think everyone should eat!" What a crazy idea...

The Ardent Thread: She could be news anchor on FOX News! Except she's not blonde. ;o)

Seeing Eye Chick: John Ashcroft is very annoying. On the other hand, no wait... He's just just very annoying.

Susan: Thanks, Susan! Comparing her to a harpy might be considered to be insulting to harpies, however...

Randal Graves: I like the way you think! The poor bear might get indigestion, though.

Dguzman: I deleted that fellow's comments. With a little research I found that he is just a troll using many sock puppets. Thanks, Dguzman!

Lisa: You may be onto something. The Queen Tamora was tricked into eating her own children in Shakespeare's play Titus. They had been baked into pies. Look how well that turned out!

Seeing Eye Chick: Eat the rich? Ick! Too fatty!

The Hermit: At first I was angry, and later I just felt sorry for this stupid woman. How she ever gained public office is a mystery to me.

Poor people are poor because this is god letting us know that they are deficient in morality and righteousness. That way when I treat them badly I know I am doing the will of the lord.

maybe cynthia wants all the waifs of the world to rummage through the garbage - they get food and clean the environment as well
