    Do you think the libs would go for that?

    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.
    Exorbitant health care costs due to complications with obesity and diet are every government's responsibility. One T-shirt I saw here at Yellowstone said "Emergency Care Interferes with Natural Selection" .

    Re: Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches

    This study was written rather iffily (my word), from what I saw.

    They used words like 'agreeable' and 'generally liked'...pretty vague terminology, IMO.

    I think it's good that students eat healthier foods...but there is a big difference between foods being 'agreeable' and 'preferable'.

    I highly doubt if given the choice of a salad or pizza that most students would choose the former.


    But, at least they seem to not mind healthier foods...which is good, of course.

    No it is not.
    It is the individuals responsibility.

    Not necessarily.

    But what it does do is indoctrinate kids to be dependent on a Nanny State.

    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.
    Again alleged photos from school don't mean mean anything.Any schmuck can stick alleged school food on a tray,take a picture of it and claim this is all the school is serving.Styrofoam trays are actually pretty common and so are hard plastic trays.For around 30 bucks plus money for shiping you can get a case of 500 hundred of those exact trays on amazon and I am sure any walmart or other store carry those or similar trays.

    Here is a picture of what looks like Obama checking out a underaged girl's ass while France's president at the time Nicolas Sarkozy with a **** eating grin on his face..But that doesn't mean that is actually going on.Much like I seriously doubt the school just handed a kid a flour tortilla with a slice of lunch meat a slice of cheese for lunch and said thats it or handed a kid a measely sandwich,3 grape tomatoes and a milk and said that's it for lunch.
    0710090115_m_a450.jpg

    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.
    According the OP article 70 percent of the kids like the healthy food.So the idea they are not even taking it is absurd.

    Yes it is. Pushing/teaching/indoctrinating anything the Gov does as right/good/healthy, etc... Is wrong.
    A school's sole job is to educate.Educating kids on proper nutrition is not indoctrination.It is educating kids as to what proper nutrition is.


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

    You do know that public schools are run by government and funded with tax dollars, right? That's what makes them public schools.Are they supposed point kids towards the direction of the strip malls for lunch and provide food coupons for poor kids or say to the kids your mommy doesn't love you enough to feed you so no school lunch for you?

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"

    I do not know if you ever went to public school but school cafeteria food was not really known to be great in the first place.

    Do you mean tasty or healthy?

    At the most pedantic, ignorant level you could argue that inculcating ideas into young minds is "indoctrination" but that implies the lack of understanding of what "teaching" is these days. If teachers are producing questioning critical minds in their schools then they are highly unlikely to be fooled by simplistic indoctrination.

    Besides, as you and others have pointed out, pupils and parents still have choice in the matter whether to provide for themselves or to eat the healthy options presented.
