The left lost. The left does not accept losses as their failures. The left is unhappy. Unless the left figures out why they lost, they will be unhappy for quite a while.
Is everything just left or right to you?

Anyhows the Democrats lost the electoral college but not the popular vote. So they only got half the equation wrong.

The only popular vote they won was in California, the rest of the states went for Trump.

What's right or left about my post? What's not fact?

Popular vote? TP#223.

We played by our own different rules. We must have won at least half.

Where is former candidate Hillary BTW. Haven't heard from her for a while.

Meals on Wheels is a nonprofit group that receives funding from the federal government, state and local governments and private donors. “We serve more than 2.4 million seniors from 60 to 100+ years old each year,” the organization writes. “They are primarily older than 60 and because of physical limitations or financial reasons, have difficulty shopping for or preparing meals for themselves.”

If that doesn’t clear the bar for “results,” as Mulvaney put it, there’s also been a fair amount of peer-reviewed research on the efficacy of the program.

A 2013 review of studies, for instance, found that home-delivered meal programs for seniors “significantly improve diet quality, increase nutrient intakes, and reduce food insecurity and nutritional risk among participants. Other beneficial outcomes include increased socialization opportunities, improvement in dietary adherence, and higher quality of life.”

he also said free breakfast for underprivileged school students wasn't shown to help students in school work.

The communities that have such programs have to adhere to many federal regulations that eats up their budgets so that they must buy the cheapest crap possible. If one thought mama obama's lunch program meals were detestable, you would get the same when looking at many of the meals served to seniors.

Much of the food is thrown out, (just like obama's lunches were,) it does not socialize anything for some seniors as they are home bound and alone. Nor does it improve the diet.

Seniors are also charged for the service. It is asked that they pay up to three dollars per meal, which averages out to $60 bucks a month. Many of the seniors could afford to pay that amount, but chose not to do so because of their entitlement mentality.

One more note, to say that meals on wheels reduces food insecurity and nutritional risk among participants is a lie. Many times during the year because of weather meals are not delivered at all, and the people will be given little to no notice what so ever. They also don't deliver on weekends or government holidays. There are times that seniors will go four days without their meals on wheels.

This program would better be served by the private sector, but because of government regulations and interference it can't work. Cut the funding at the federal level and let the states handle it without all the regulations.
Where you live, respectfully, Sir is a highly populated area, and I'll bet most are grateful for the food or they wouldn't have signed up for it. I don't know what you mean by the meals aren't good...regulations. But I do know there are better cooks than others. We have an excellent MoW program here that serves the same meals as our private non profit senior center. I have eaten there and it's pretty great.
