    His name is Ndidi Ndimba, and the N’s are silent so in reality his name is Diddi. He thought I had made up the song “Do Wa Diddi, Didi Dum Didi Do." Because I would sing it at work. One day he heard it on an oldies radio station and came in “I Believe You, it is a real song!!!” it was so funny as he thought I was just picking on him.

    How do you figure it is cheaper to eat out every night than cook? How much would it cost for a family of 5 to eat out at somewhere 'cheap' like McDonald's? 3 meals for 5 at McD's will pay for all my groceries for one week, diapers for two kids included. I would really be interested in how you come up with your numbers that say eating out is cheaper.

    Its not just that it's cheap. The point I was making (I must have done a poor job of it) is that poorer families are also constrained by time. In most cases it is a single working parent with children or 2 working parents with children. It is also frequent that working poor people work a lot more than the standard 40 hr week. Given these conditions, the consumption of garbage food, whether it comes home cooked via frozen dinners or tainted hamburger; or whether it comes from MdD's or some other joint doesn't really matter. It largely a high fat, high chloresteral diet which leads to all kinds of issues.

    and its all us right wingers fault!!!!

    never mind good solid meals are available at fast food restaurants everywhere. never mind that you can get great meals of steamed veggies and rice at asian restaurants everywhere. never mind that everywhere - even Dominoes - has a salad or something healthier.

    its poor parenting. my wife has been with WIC for 28 yrs. she has seen it all, you can lead a horse to water but...... well, you know.

    i liken it to giving your dog table scraps - most of us know better, but some still do it - why? because its easy.

    so the time constraint is BS. its the education and family values constraint.

    I find nothing wrong with table scraps for dogs. My last dog lived to be 14 years old. His life expectancy (by breed) was 8. His diet was supplemented with meat scraps and bones and other items from our table. Course we don't eat trash food, and neither did he.

    Hmmm....so your wife gave us food money for 2 years while I was in college, and now I'm paying her salary for the next 26 years plus pension?

    Sounds like we're both buying into a liberal socialist agenda and benefiting from it.

    This is probably a thread high jack, but anyway, Whats wrong with that?
    Is it wrong to work with a company for 30-40 years and expect a retirement plan and healthcare? Isn't that what the american dream is all about? I think so. To me, thats better than taking care of someone for their entire life because they wouldn't work. To me, working all your adult life and expecting to be rewarded with retirement is not liberal at all.

    Time is not an excuse. It is all about using your time wisely.
    I could say that 2 people making good money but working 60+ hours a week and not getting paid overtime are in the same boat.
    Stop making excuses for people eating like crap and feeding their kids crap.
    A crockpot is your friend. So is planning in advance and cooking healthy meals that can be frozen on the weekend and then heating them back up in the micro during the week.
    How many more execuses are you going to come up with?

    Thank you. That is what unions and democrats have been saying for years.

    I agree totally with you on that, but some here would consider that socialist views.
