    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Schools seek changes to healthier lunch rules

    Link does not work for me.


    As for offering the kids healthy lunches? Why not just offer the stuff that is good for them?

    If they don't like it; they can starve/bring their own/buy it somewhere else (if available).

    My guess is if they either have to starve or eat whole wheat pasta...they will choose the latter.

    Nice, blame YOUR behavior on me. And no, I have not done that here. Post where I've said, "we have to wait until it becomes a problem" for instance.

    That's nice, but this doesn't, so again, not a government issue.

    More cherry picking and dodging your own arguments.

    The proper way to look at 'the problem' is not removing parents from some CONvoluted equation, but giving the student as much of a chance to get a good education and be able to get a higher paying job...

    Back when there were millions of manufacturing jobs that paid double min wage to start with a high school degree free lunches were not as widespread as now. I know CONs love to glare at the inner city but those qualifying for reduced and free meals are everywhere.

    But let's blame the parents...
    The problem with the emotionalism that cloaks ProgLibs in ignorance, is that you're focused on creating more irresponsible parents, when the need is to reduce the pool of them.

    Stop it, or the majority will most certainly do so without you.

    Uh? What now?
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    And more wiggle from you. Sure you didn't say the exact words "we have to wait until it becomes a problem" but when it was pointed out that it could become a national security problem you argued that it wasn't one yet. The implication is clear, no matter how hard you try to be unclear.


    That's nice, but this doesn't, so again, not a government issue.
    And there you go again, arguing that because it hasn't yet harmed our security, it's not a govt issue.



    We don't have to wait for Iran to have a nuclear weapon before they become a nuclear threat requiring military action, right?
    Right, but we have to wait until obesity harms our national security. Otherwise, it's not a threat.


    More cherry picking and dodging your own arguments.
    More dodging your own words. I'll repeat them for you
    However, I am not exactly comfortable with government as a teacher. I don't look to my government to teach me to "be better". Maybe you do.

    Some low income folks don't have that option.

    You guessed wrong. The article says they rejected it.
