    Do you have a link to the actual school menus?Not photographs that mean nothing except for maybe the kid didn't want everything offered( assuming those photographs are actually from a school)? Anyone can take a plastic tray,stick something on it,take a picture of it and claim its school lunch.

    Indoctrination is not a Government's job.
    Or would you prefer that the Gov indoctrinate everybody to socialist ideals? Or how about liberal ideals?
    Or maybe you want Gov to indoctrinate to Conservative ideals?
    Telling kids to eat healthy and serving healthy food is not anywhere near the same as pushing political ideology.

    So again, we need less Gov control and less Gov influence.
    Isn't it government that orders food for the school cafeterias?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The issue isn't should the schools feed the kids .
    The issue is should the schools feed the kids healthy food or junk food.
    You come down on the side of favoring junk food just to be contrary to anything Obama.
    You say **** the health of the kids just to make some stupid political points.
    Shame on you.
    Shame on you for misstating the position. The food they were receiving was not junk.
    Secondly Gov involvement is part of the issue here. Period.

    The Gov should not be teaching anything it does is correct/right/or good. That is indoctrination.

Even if you had done such a thing, rocking the status quo requires political investment, of which any political actor has a finite amount. There's a sorting algorithm to where they should rock the status quo and where they should work with, through, or around it.

    Given the overall state of education and public health in this country, there's nothing that suggests your policy is the one we should be pursuing right now.

    No, that is what you said.

    And it's a good thing we live in a Republic then.

    No one's dictating anything to you. Don't like it, pack your child a lunch.

    Schools already serve lunches. Schools already decide what to serve. That's all that's happening - a decision on what to serve for lunch. This is not a new restriction on your freedom. Your kids are being offered a healthier lunch than before. Quit your bitching. Save your faux outrage.

    No one said it was. Please address what's actually being said, not strawmen.

    "long term calorie nutrition"?

    1/2 cup of cantaloupe is "too much fruit"?

    ahh, now I see! You're just making crap up

    If not junk then at least not as healthy. Fat kids don't need more fat in their diets ...they need less.

    The government / public schools has a duty to teach what foods are healthier choices. If by example ...all the better.
    That is teaching, not indoctrination.
    Stop and think for a moment ...You are arguing that the schools should feed kids less healthy food...
    Is that really who you want to be?
    Just to be anti-Obama?
    Really?

    No, that is what you said.

    And it's a good thing we live in a Republic then.
    Doesn't matter if you call it a republic or a democracy. In this country, if you don't have a consensus to back you up, you don't have any power or ability to decide anything about policy.

    I'm not sure where that "that is what you said" comment comes from.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    If you do not want to believe them don't. That is on you.
    But I need not provide more.
    And of course I am going to select those that make the point.
    So again, if you do not want to believe them that is on you.







    And if the kids have a choice, then offer them what they will eat. Not crap they wont even take.
    And as noted by another, as well as on-line, more crap that they have to take is tossed. It is doing no good.

    Yes it is. Pushing/teaching/indoctrinating anything the Gov does as right/good/healthy, etc... Is wrong.

    If it is, it didn't used to be.
    We do not need any GOv involvement.
