    That defines Liberalism and is why I oppose it.

    This bill is a prime example. They piss and moan about the deficit and we need to raise taxes, then turn around and pass a bill that spends money on ****ing green lunch rooms in the school houses.
    Bravo my friend!!!!

    It's only tied in with schools and cafeterias, nothing about thousands of kids that don't go to school for one reason or another.

    Well, I can't speak for Boo, but like I said schools don't need to be serving the unhealthy foods that they do (like deep fried french fries). I don't think you actually know what kinds of foods would be provided, but that aside, parents can pack what ever they like in a lunch but if you want food that is state supplied then it is going to be regulated.

    One, not the **** that low income earners eat.
    Two, that doesn't mean that schools should be serving said ****.

    They really are on the road to completely taking away all parental rights.

    Stimulus cash spurs after-care program changes for Santa Fe schools - The Santa Fe New Mexican



    Parents of students who registered for the after-school program at E.J. Martinez Elementary School were told last week that they would not be allowed to pick up their children until 5:30 p.m., even if they themselves get off work earlier than that.

    "It's asinine to say if I can pick my kids up earlier than 5:30 p.m., I get penalized. That's nuts," said Valerie Ingram, whose children are enrolled in the school's after-care program. "I'll see them for maybe two hours before they go to sleep."

    If it weren't for federal stimulus money, Santa Fe Public Schools might have been forced to cut the after-care completely. Earlier this year the district was facing a $4.5 million budget shortfall for the new school year.

    Now many families are assured of getting the services — and for free. But, as Gutierrez admitted, there are "so many strings attached."

    In addition to the required academic instruction, the schools must keep careful attendance records and sign-in logs, employ research-based curricula and submit lesson plans to authorities. And because the money is reserved for children in low-income, Title I schools, students at Wood Gormley, who used to come to E.J. Martinez for after-care, must now go to a fee-paying YMCA program at Atalaya.

    That's a little hysterical. It's one school.

    Plus, I'd also like to add I'm a little tired of people bitching about free things. You don't like the rules for this after school program? Pay for your own. You don't like the nutritious lunch the school is serving? Pack one for your kid.

    My generation ate as many junk foods as kids do today, but the long-term effects weren't as destructive as you'd think. Life expectancy rose from 68 to 78, and heart attacks are about the same.
