A lot of Utahns are justifiably in an uproar over the situation at Uintah Elementary, wherein students whose parents had not kept up payments on their accounts had their lunches taken away from them. I've heard people blaming the public school system, the phantom of “government bureaucracy,” and some talk of a “culture of bullying” with the school district.
Isn't it possible that the culture of bullying here is the same one that promotes cutting food stamps, or not expanding Medicaid, because poor people (including children) are “lazy?”
How can some of the same people be outraged that food was taken from children at school but be in favor of taking food from them at home? I don't get it.
