    If that were the case we would not have so many fleeing to the US every year. The funny part is they are not so much fleeing because of political reasons anymore, mostly economical. So no.

    Well I guess since we're Cuba, they might as well just stay put lol.
    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.

    So are you saying we need a government program to correct this? Seems we need a government program to do everything else.

    Should schools limit their offerings to one or two unhealthy alternatives? Why should schools give students entitlements to unhealthy foods?
    <- This libertarian thinks it's a waste of money.
    If we are going to spend so much on schools, in general, then the money should go towards more expensive but healthier lunches.

    Being completely practical about it.

And I think the government could do that the best. Also we should provide breakfast, and lunch to all students who can't afford to pay the amount it cost to buy them.
    In Georgia, school lunch involves fries on almost all levels.

    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 &#40;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...)
    Then send your kids to another school or take it to the school board.
    There are other choices.

    Look at the ingredients of chocolate milk and then get back to me.

    And no, I don't drink white milk either.
