    Post where I denied I said that. Lying about what I posted - unsurprising. You twist and turn about so much when you lose the argument you forget your way back to what was said.



    No, there is not.



    Public schools are an entity of state and local government. They are NOT part of the federal grant of powers. Even so, the responsibility and grant of power the state and local have here is to EDUCATE. We're talking about school lunches here.

    You nanny needing types seem to have the same disability to recognize the difference between state, local and federal government. And to burst your little feel good bubble some more - I don't hate government, federal, state or local. They all have their purposes. Telling us how to eat is not one of them.
    This is just more of your ducking and dodging. You've merely added a new step by acting as if you have been making a distinction between the federal govt and state and local govts all along

    I think you're projecting.

    So do I. There is a big difference between seasoning your food and adding the excessive amount of sodium to a home cooked meal that is in a frozen dinner.
    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.

    Frozen dinners and similarly over-processed foods require excessive amounts of fats, sugars and salt in order to make them palatable by covering up the "off" flavors of the chemicals used in them.

    I would not be surprised if someone now takes issue with the term "over-processed" (by arguing that many healthy foods are "processed" and the word "over" is not clearly defined)

    Obviously, the answer is to outlaw possession of food items and only allow people to get food at government run cafeterias. We all know people can't be trusted to make the right decisions, only bureaucrats can.

    Even better - if we spend all our time making up absurd straw men, no one will have time to eat anything, good or bad

    Problem solved!

    So you haven't been arguing that a government solution is preferable? All I'm doing is taking your argument to its logical endpoint. How else can you control all of the issues you and others have raised?

    This thread makes me think just how crappy my school lunches were. Government cheese and miracle whip sandwiches, peanut butter that smelled like deck stain. pseudo-soy burgers. Ugh.
