    What? You think because you actually lived in China and worked in Chinese schools, that you know anything about them?

    It's a personal rights issue because parents should have the right to choose what their kids do and don't eat. Like Rev said, call human services if the parent is neglectful in this regard. The school's role is to teach nutrition, and to set a good example in the cafeteria, but they should not dictate parents' and childrens' choices like this.

    Isn't it sad that we would allow the government to feed their minds, yet people want to riot in the streets if the government has a say in what goes into their stomachs.
    The government doesn't always know best, and must always be questioned. That's why I think the Department of Education should be completely overhauled. The only thing it should do, and the only thing the Fed really has Constitutional authority to do, is to put out curriculum guidelines or suggestions. Individual schools can choose to incorporate some, all, or none of it as they see fit, and parents can choose which school they want based on what it teaches. But we're already so far away from that I doubt it would ever happen.

    Libbo talking points rarely, if ever, have anything to do with crack.

    But, most often--when left with anything else--have much to do with insulting their opponent.

    No, your comments of themselves apart from political persuasion seemed to merit my reply. That Soviets or Chinese would illegalise school lunches brought from home or completely to the ends of totalitarianism for its own sake. Actually now that I think of it, the Russian school I went to had better food than my American gradeschool.

    What? You think because you actually lived in China and worked in Chinese schools, that you know anything about them?
    Or was this just a funny I didn't catch? Ehh it's probably a funny.

    Wasn't it you who made the claim that China would never prevent children from bringing lunches to school from home???

    I thought he had an aneurism and his logic circuit failed after ridiculing me for believing they wouldnt ban home lunches. I assume their food is better in schools there too. Maybe the nice ones.
