    'Put CCTV in addicts' homes to protect children' - Herald Scotland

    That's just a relatively recent example... every few months or so there's a small article that might make it somewhere discreet in the newspaper where few will actually read.

    Cnspiracy theories seem to be your strong suit.

    Cause you know, we're only one school board decision away from CCTV in our homes
    It's called a TREND. If the TREND continues, it COULD wind up in the absurd as I pointed out. Why stop with telling parents what they can or cannot put in their lunches... hell, why allow parents to pack a lunch at all?? Parents cant' be trusted to make good decisions for the kids when the state is MUCH more capable.

    Of course everything you don't want to believe is happening is called a "conspiracy"... sometimes I wonder if people actually understand the meaning of "conspiracy theory" anyway. If THAT trend continues, "conspiracy" will become the most commonly misused word, even over "irony".

    Don't like it, send your kids to a private school or homeschool them.
    The public babysitt...school doesn't exist to serve your kids palate.
    - Banning Brown Bagging: Chicago School Cracks Down on Homemade Lunches - TIME NewsFeed
    - Elementary school bans tag - US news - Education - msnbc.com
    - New Mexico school bans club meetings after gay club formed - Yahoo! News

    How far does it have to get before you realize there's a problem???

    - Should they have to go through security like at an airport? (oops, too late in many areas)
    - Should they have to get their thumb print recorded for lunch? (Concern over thumbprint reader at Cressex Community School in High Wycombe (From Bucks Free Press))

    So, send the kids to a public school where they are effectively treated like prisoners... OR a person could pay the exorbitant fees involved with private schooling... OR can have one parent give up their career for homeschooling (which is also becoming more and more difficult through regulation...)

    Why isn't a school's offering of unhealthy alternatives seen by conservative/libertarians as a waste of the taxpayer money? Shouldn't there just be one or maybe two healthy choices, and the parents can provide additional alternatives if they choose to?

    Should schools limit their offerings to one or two unhealthy alternatives? Why should schools give students entitlements to unhealthy foods?
    1. Government shouldn't be in the restaurant business.

    2. I dislike busy-bodies who tell people what they can consume and can't. They ban candy at school, they ban bake sales, they make war on soda. These people piss me off. Why?

    You get absolute idiocy like this:
    Michael Sheridan was stripped of his title as class vice president, barred from attending an honors student dinner and suspended for a day after buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate.

    The New Haven school system banned candy sales... as part of a district-wide school wellness policy, said school spokeswoman Catherine Sullivan-DeCarlo.

    TWW - Middle school kid suspended for buying candy

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Kids shouldn't be forced to go hungry in school period. Most kids pay for their lunches, and if we can't provide food for kids who have no control over their situation, then that's not a country I want to live in.

    Let's see, recesses are being shortened, high activity games are either banned or heavily structured for fear of "lawsuits" cause kids might "get hurt".

    It's not what you eat, it's what you do. The more parents abdicate their responsibilities of raising their kids to the Gov't, the more problems we keep having.

    Amazingly the answer seems to be "more control"! It's like the world has entered a dark time of stupid.
    For the first time, I'm with Mr Vic on an issue. Instead of all these things, I'd rather them teach kids more about nutrition and healthy diets and how to take care of their own bodies.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You only provide healthy meals at school, take the choice away from them at school, while giving them the skills, and education so that they can make the healthy choices outside of school. This is what I think would be best.

    We can, but the government should not be doing it.

    Why? Why not let private institutions do this, do it more effectively as they always do, and do it at a far lower cost, thus eliminating 16 billion (and growing) in annual costs to the taxpayer, and in one motion gut a bunch of corruption and waste?

    Why always look to government? That huge ineffective wasteful behemoth?

    What do these kids eat on weekends, holidays and summer and winter vacation?

    Because they need to provide healthy foods at school, not whatever a company wants to sell to the kids.
