Colbert & Matthew 25

This is from last week, but I had to give a plug for Colbert referencing Matthew 25 in this segment. Colbert reports on Missouri State Representative Cynthia Davis' recent statement that "Hunger can be a positive motivator." The comment was made in reference to her opposition to subsidizing school lunches for low income children during the summer.

In fairness, Davis later wrote, "We all agree on the importance of feeding children, but we differ on who should do this. I believe this duty belongs to the parents." I'm glad she thinks that children should be fed. Unfortunately she doesn't seem to understand that in American we have a great deal of poverty and many children go hungry.
