Dirt Bag of the Week 9/29/15 Rep. Jim Jordan

Republican Congressman from Ohio; Jim Jordan spoke to Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards in a way that he probably speaks to most women in his life. It felt familiar, he worked it well. His bully tactic in public was an obvious attempt to entrap Cecile into tripping over her words and flustering her.

Why would he have to bully and fluster someone to trip up there words?
This reminds me of the kind of tactics mentally and psychologically abusive partners and parents use when battering someone. Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus seems to have the tempo down rather well.

Here is a thought: find out what federal monies are used and where. Speak to the people before you with respect and understand that a woman’s reproductive rights are never, ever, ever your business. Ever.

Faux News Hard Hitting Opinion “News Anchor”

Megyn Kelly makes our final Dirt Bag of the Week for 2013.
Racially profiling not only Santa Claus but Jesus Christ as being ‘white’. I personally love watching privileged folks of any ethnicity completely lose their grasp on reality; but when it happens to a blonde bobble head.. it makes it so much sweeter.

Fox News guest: ‘That’s a teaching moment’ when hungry kids can’t eat school lunch,

not punishment

This week’s Dirt Bag of the Week award goes to Thomas Kersting a New Jersey School Counselor who weighed in on school children in New Jersey having their school lunches tossed in the garbage if they couldn’t pay for the meal.  Fux News had Kersting on who is a school counselor who objects to children who forget lunch money from getting a meal. He instead supporting throwing the meal in the garbage and using the hunger as a teachable moment for the student.
Thomas Kersting has probably never missed a meal in his childhood nor as a school counselor does he interact with children who often rely on school lunch as their main meal of the day. Unemployment is still high, Food Stamp benefits are being slashed, and states like Massachusetts is making sure all their students have access to breakfast and lunch by providing free meals. Being hungry can affect concentration, behavior, test scores, and self esteem. I am shocked that a man like Kersting who is in a position to help students in low socioeconomic  backgrounds chooses instead to shame them and keep them hungry. Those who are on the poverty line and may not qualify for food stamps, or free and reduced lunches will bear the brunt of this ‘teaching moment’.
