    At kleast that. Do you pay for school lunches on top of that or do they brown bag?

    Nnot sure I carwe whether local or federal government does it. Nor do I see how either doing it is losing any freedoms. So, I don't really follow you here.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    the freedom loss is when they dictate what it is your children can eat. I remember a story of a kid told that he couldn't have his lunch he brought from home because it contained certain banned foods...That goes too far.

    First lady Michelle Obama has lobbied for the bill as part of her "Let's Move" campaign to combat childhood obesity.
    I think their are many others involved in this "Let's Move" campaign, especially regarding the Obamas.

    They're not doing that. The dictated would be what schools can fix with our money. You're free to feed them whatever you want. There is a real difference here.

    And when you pay, that adds to your cost. Right?

    You can blindly trust all you wish....Why do you expect other to do that though?
