Comment of the Day: Shoes Are Overrated

LaComtesse on Tennessee's plan to cut welfare funding to families of students who don't perform well in school.

THANK YOU. That should be required reading for members of legislature before they vote on this dumb bill — everything fucked about the entire idea wrapped up in two little sentences!
