    Yes. If the individual school or district wants to pull the machines for whatever reason, or limit their soda to diet (sans sucre) that is their choice. Last I heard, soda is a legal substance.

    Our school system: Sorry, no soda kiddies, it's dangerous, but here... have a box of condoms.

    Are you seriously offended by Michelle Obama doing something like this or are you just drawing a straw from anywhere you can get it? What you are saying is stupid and asinine.
    I don't like government telling me what I should eat. They government's food pyramid has failed epically, causing greater problems, and more obesity and heart disease... which is typical for government. They put their finger in something they have no business doing, and create a huge problem, which of course only more government can fix... Go to hell I say. Michelle, take your salad bars and shove them.

    If she wanted to do something constructive, then tell the nation, THE GOVERNMENT WAS WRONG, WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, EAT WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. The only thing you should watch for is you don't eat too much. Period.

    Then she can go back to gardening.

    From the WSJ:
    The Government's Food Pyramid Correlates to Obesity, Critics Say
    While the government has stood by this (food pyramid) regimen for 11 years, some critics say it's no coincidence that the number of overweight Americans has risen 61% since the pyramid was introduced
    That achievement in 11 short years!!!

    And 400 million for government sanctioned salad bars is a waste. In fact, they should scrub school cafeteria's period... unless they are run like restaurants for profit.

    Laura Bush started an inititative to educate women on their health particularly on how to prevent heart disease. HOW DARE SHE TELL OUR WOMEN HOW TO BE HEALTHIER. IF I WANT TO KEEP FEEDING MY MOM AND GRANDMA GRAVY FRIES AND DEEP FRIED TWINKIES GODDAMNIT IM GOING TO DO IT IM AMERICAN **** HEART DISEASE.
    Well, again... if you want to do that, that's between you and Grandma.

    As for Laura and The Dept. of H&H, they can close that down too. I mean really, what did we ever do without this Dept before its creation in 1979. SHUT IT DOWN. If the private sector wants to start some initiative, and they want the First Lady as a spokesperson, then fine... I'm all for it.

    She also started inititatives encouraging kids to read and read specific kinds of books when they begin reading as they are growing. HOW DARE SHE TRY TO TELL AMERICA'S CHILDREN WHAT TO READ. WHY? SO SHE COULD BRAINWASH OUR KIDS! I'M DISGUSTED. IF I WANT MY KIDS READING HUSTLER AND WATCHING SPONGEBOB UNTIL THEIR BRAINS ROT THATS MY DEAL SHE NEEDS TO STAY OUT MY LIFE.
    Literacy is important because you need to be able to read to have a modicum of success in life. I don't recall her saying read anything specific, just read. And if this is an arm of the Federal government... shut it down. Let the private sector fund this too.

    In fact, let's scrub the Education Dept. and return this to the states and their localities. It's another Carter era behemoth that's been the creator and guardian of failure, watching over the demise of American Education.

    What would we do without these failing departments? We'd be doing far better.

    Illiteracy Statistics

    Illiteracy has become such a serious problem in our country that 44 million adults are now unable to read a simple story to their child. A few other shocking facts:

    * 50 percent of adults cannot read a book written at an eighth grade level.
    * 20 percent of Americans are functionally illiterate and read below a 5th grade level.
    * Nearly half of all Americans read so poorly that they cannot find a single piece of information when reading a short publication.

    Literacy Falls for Graduates From College, Testing Finds

    Published: December 16, 2005

    The average American college graduate's literacy in English declined significantly over the past decade, according to results of a nationwide test released yesterday.
    And your solution? More federal government? More money?

    And to bring this back to the OP... who's Reckless? Palin? Or the Federal Government?

    My point is, is every First Lady has gotten a cause and this seems to be the first time anyone bitched about it like it was actually hurting us.

    You want to know what would be a better solution than getting rid of departments that put these standards out there? Get rid of half the **** rotting our brains in the first place. There is no correlation to federal government controlled education and "illteracy". In fact, in the third smartest country in the world, Japan, the Japanese government gives a set of guidelines, and will only allow secondary schools (colleges) to function if they meet their strict and very high standards.

    South Korea which is probably the smartest or close to smartest country in the world has a centralized education system as well that concentrates greatly on math and science. So your arguement isn't there.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Nancy Reagan couldn't do anything without being bitched about. Hillary Clinton was bitched about for HillaryKare, first by the right, then by the left after they got demolished in the midterms. Then she got really, really quiet and went back to baking cookies and boning up on those 900 raw FBI files of political enemies.

    That's Japan and SK. We aren't Japan and SK; our cultures are vastly different, and we know what doesn't work. If it works for them... Yipppeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Our federal government has overseen the demise of our school system for 4 decades. The correlation couldn't be clearer. Send it back the the states and their localities. Smaller, more accountable places; you know... places no bigger than Japan or SK. Let them run their experiments, let them compete... because the feds have instituted catastrophic failure.

    The Carter education scheme has had the same effect as the damn food pyramid. Disaster.

    Zimmer, how many people bitched about "Just say no"? I do not remember any. People bitched about how expensive her dresses where is the only one I remember, and that was a retarded bitch.

    Actually I know a LOT of people that thought the "just say no" campaign was as mindless and politically motivated as the one under discussion. I was as well...and have said as much here (tho there were strangely no threads available during the JSN campaign...)

    Geez...how many people here are young enough to remember a time with no internet??? And I dont mean due to a power outage...
