    Being silly and stupid is not being vigilant. No one is making you eat anything you don't want. it is silly and ignorant to say they are.

    And we can't afford two wars either, so I noted your complaint with them being started without just cause as well.

    Re: Obama to sign Child Nutrition Bill today

    the govt is giving advice, not mandating anything....I agree that we don't need a mulitbillion dollar program to do that, surely the teachers can find time to teach a little bit of nutrition once a week or so. And surely the schools can remove the vending machines that contain junk food, it they want.
    This whole thing has been blown out of proprotion, and has about as much merit as the so called death panels.

    Maybe you should stop the ad hominem attack calling your political opponents "silly, and stupid" and you might find a better level of debate. People are not al "silly, and ignorant" if they don't agree with you sir.

    And we can't afford two wars either, so I noted your complaint with them being started without just cause as well.
    Clever, so let me get this straight, under the laws that govern "you did it first...." you get to do anything you want and point to the war in Iraq, and Afghanistan to justify your socialist take over of America? That's a real stretch Joe, even for you.

    Just a question....Is there money to the schools from the Fed if they comply with the standards?

    If I can't think of anything logical to rebut someone's point, I normally just avoid the thread. I mean, I see you have your own tactic, but you might want to give mine a try. It looks a little less...obvious.

    read carefull and for meaning. I'm calling the exaggeration silly and supid. I haven't called any person anything.

    And no, under logic and consistency, you need to be consistent in your views and not just hate the other side. If money is a real concern, be consistent in worrying about it. If it isn't, then consistently keep to that belief. or at least argue that fighting needless wars is more important than helping people here at home.

    And if I disagree that the wars we are engaged in are "needless" as you put it? what then?

    It'd be difficult for schools to remove the vending machines without unreasonable cuts in their budgets. Vending contracts just for single school districts run into the millions. I don't mind paying more taxes to fund our schools so they don't have to rely on corporations, but I'm often in the minority on that stance.
