    Bs! The Gov teaching what it is doing is correct/right/good/not wrong/healthy is indoctrination.

    Just to be anti-Obama?
    You stop and think. Your position involves force and indoctrination.
    That is as wrong as wrong can be.

    It is not the Gov's business who eats what.
    All you are doing is exemplifying the real problem.
    The Gov incrementally takes control of something it shouldn't, then starts forcing. It is wrong.


    And that "Just to be anti-Obama" is ridiculous, and just shows you have no valid argument.

    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.
    We need less.
    ... "Kentucky" is as far as you need to look to see what's going on in those pictures.

    Kentucky doesn't have any other suppliers (they have the worst public health scores in the country and their food economy reflects it), so they have to continue feeding the same graven laden meat carb crap as before. Just sans the sides to meet calories quotas.

    Other states have similar problems.
    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.

    Well I can't say I'm surprised your source is tweets from pimply-faced, voice-cracking high school kids who turn down the included salad and then whine about not having enough to eat. As james said - spoiled little brats. But, hey, don't worry about these kids - their spineless parents will give their precious little darling a few bucks so he can buy skittles and mountain dew out of the vending machines.

    No. How about we not apologize for lousy parenting. How about you teach your child to finish his plate and eat his ****ing greens. Why do you advocate caving to a pouting child? Is that your idea of parenting?

    Oh please, quit being so dramatic. There's nothing wrong with serving kids a few more veggies at lunch. FFS, get a hobby.

    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.
    Lol, if it's for the kids, you people just happily follow along. "Oh how can you be against THIS it's for the CHILDREN!". Sad.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    (Just don't send the apple - wouldn't want the children to have to choke down any fruits or veggies).

    That person that turned down the salad was the parent. And even with a salad it isn't very appetizing. Which is part of the problem.

    How cute, you can't discern between Gov involvement and parental involvement. So of course you want Gov involvement where it doesn't belong.
    Figures.

    Typical reply of one who desires a nanny State, as such, your argument fails.
    There is nothing wrong with them bringing their own meal either.
    And as a school lunch program exists, there is nothing wrong with simply offering it to those who want it.
    But making it only an, and/or nothing, is wrong.

    Have you ever had a school lunch before? They all look like that, they're all unappetizing as ****. Mystery meat slop with a few hairs from the obese lunch lady for garnish.

    And now Michelle Obama comes in and tries to improve things! That bitch!

    A problem that has existed since school lunches have existed. A problem that clearly isn't going to fix itself because it hasn't fixed itself over the past God knows how many decades. Maybe if we just sit on our hands and wait a few more decades our problems will fix themselves, right!

    I can discern the two just fine. I disagree with your belief that we should appease ****ty behavior from kids stemming from ****ty parenting. The reason kids are throwing green beans in the trash doesn't have a thing to do with the government. It has to do with ****ty parenting. How about acknowleding some personal responsibility instead of trying to blame someone else (the gubmint) for our problems.

    Yep. Exactly what I said earlier.

    That's right. If you don't want the school lunch you don't have to buy it.

    Quote Originally Posted by Excon View Post

    Nobody is requiring anybody to eat Michelle Obama's lunch. You can feed your child anything you want for lunch. Every parent can.

    So spare me your "Help Help, I'm being oppressed" Monty Python impression.

    And you got it wrong again. You really should stop saying folks are saying something they are not.

    Yep all the more sadder that you didn't know who you were talking about.

    Not her's, the Gov's or your job.

    It is part of a problem that doesn't need to exist in the first place.
    Nor should the Gov be involved.

    Obviously you can not discern as I have not said what you say I did.
    The Gov does not belong in this at all.
    Personal responsibility means providing your own food for your own child. Not Gov involvement.

    Bs! Gov involvement is. Then the Gov dictating what can be eaten is further Nanny State control.

    Ah geez! The school lunch provided by the Gov is already relied upon. Duh!
    When that is all that is relied upon and the program only offers such that is where the problem lies. It may not be required to eat it but it is all that is relied upon.
    That is the problem of Gov involvement in the first place.

    All one has to do concerning changing eating habits is to come to a popular National Park and look at the shapes of the tourists. It is very rare to see a European or Oriental obese .
