“Butt Out, Parents, I Know Better!”

As the First Clydesdale uttered when yakking about FedGovCo’s latest power grab, mandating with the force of law what your kids can and cannot eat at school.

First Lady Michelle Obama said of deciding what American children should eat: “We can’t just leave it up to the parents.”

To borrow a particularly imbecilic phrase that we heard somewhere: “Yes You Can!”

Moreover, given our particular allergic reaction to the federal government butting into our personal affairs, a reaction that includes, but is not limited to, sudden yet alarmingly precise discharges of high-velocity projectile firearms, we strongly recommend that you do leave it to us.

Listen, Moo-chelle, we’re not at all opposed to you filling your meaningless existence with some hobby horse of yours, nor are we particularly in disagreement with you that too many of our youngsters are unnaturally well-endowed in the adipose tissue department, but it’s still none of Washington DC’s, or your, business.

And, and let us be frank here, the message you’re trying to convey would be ever so much more convincing if it came from somebody other than an ambulatory double-wide with a tendency to sneak off to gorge on french fries and burgers any chance she gets.

Imagine Nancy Reagan with pinhead pupils, a syringe in her hand and a latex tube wrapped tightly around her biceps saying “just say no.”

You dig?

But that’s not the point, really. The point is that you don’t get to tell us that we’re too stupid to raise our own kids, and if you try to use the force of law to do so, you won’t like the reaction. Because it’s none of ya bidness.

Oh, and thanks for your idiotic claim that childhood obesity is a “national security matter.” Now your retard hubby’s understudy, Janet Incompetano, will be sending out goons to dig around the crotches of three-year-olds for Twinkies and Ho-Hos.

We don’t begrudge you your hobby. You can plant collard greens all the way up and down The Mall if you so desire, but fuck with our Imperial Family and you’re going down. HARD.

So tell your Food Police to bring friends. Lots of them. We like target rich environments.

Thatisall.

P.S.: Oh, and could you tell your emasculated beta male hubby to try to hide the fact that he’s your trained poodle a little better? First we get to see him abdicating his office to Billy Blow Job because he doesn’t want to “keep you waiting” and now he’s up there saying that he had to sign your pet bill or he’d be sleeping on the couch.

It’s not that we don’t know that lil’ Hussein has less spine than a tape worm and that he lives in mortal fear of your jutting testicle shelf but, you know, could he at least pretend to be in charge of his job? For national security reasons?

Thatistrulyall.

    Question here is say Worf manages to get this particular totalitarian fantasy of hers enacted, and schools must only provide “healthful” fare, such as raw veggies and tofu to the little sweethearts, will a federal agent be there to force them to choke this crap down before they’re allowed to leave the cafeteria?

    Not that your reply isn’t accurate, truthful, and jaw-breakingly funny, (emasculated lap dog, heh heh), but does this silly b*tch actually think that just because she says that kids can only eat whatever that they will listen? I know keeping mine off of drugs was fairly simple, (it is called good parenting) if labor and time intensive, but telling a 17 year old male, who hunts his own dinner a couple of times a week that he can’t eat a twinkie is gonna go over about as well as telling the ocean to ….. oh wait. That didn’t go over so well for someone, did it?

    I was thinking the same thing, GC. Perhaps the TSA guard that searches for hidden Twinky and Funnybone contraband will inspect the home-packed lunch sack for forbidden items and confiscate. “No lunch for you!” Then a warning will be sent to the child’s parents that a fine will be in order the next time they do not adhere to the State’s dietary requirements. :em96:

    There is NOTHING in this law that says parents can’t send their children to school with a truckload of Ho-Hos and Twinkies wrapped in bacon. What you are complaining about is what the school will provide in breakfast and lunches and vending machines.

    If the school only provided bird seed, and the parents don’t like it, then send the child to school with the food of their choice. But as long as the government is providing this food for less than cost or free, then the government can decide what to provide.

    Again, don’t like it? Then feed your own child and quit bellyaching as to what they feed other kids.

    There is nothing in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act that mandates what a child can bring to school, only what the school will provide.

    In short, if you disapprove of the school menu, then send your kids to school with a lunch box.

    Perhaps you should read the bill. All it does is change the federal breakfast, lunch, after school and summer programs for schools that participate in those federal programs. It doesn’t effect private schools or public schools that don’t take federal grant money to provide meals. And it only effects those meals that the school provides, not what the parents send with the child.

    For many children, the school-provided meals are probably the only meal those kids get. Getting all screechy over telling the parents how to feed their kids is asinine. The way I see it is if the government has to feed your child, then shut the fuck up about HOW they do it.

    Ok, I come from the side of having been on the adminstration side of school lunches. When I taught at parachiol schools we would have “hot” lunch 2 or 3 days a week if parents chose to pay for it. Guess where we got the food from McDonalds, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut. My second year the fat ass principal decided that we could not have french fried with the hamburgers anymore and the kids got stuck with little bags of carrots instead. All those carrots that got thrown out by the upper grades. Those of us in the primary grades had more control and required that they eat at least a portion of their lunch before throwing it out. We were a private school and were allowed. Principal realized that fewer students were ordering on McDonald’s day and allowed for the french fries again because we made a small amount of money on the sale of each lunch.
    I then had to become a candy cop because the principal decided that the kids were not to be allowed to have candy or sugary snacks. That was a serious pain in the you know what.
    Then when I started working at a “Choice” School, or a voucher school. Schools that are private but tuition is paid by the state allowing low income parents to opt out of the public schools. Part of my administration duties was to oversee the federally funded school breakfast and lunch program. As federal mandates state you CANNOT require the kids to eat the food, so you know what happens they go through the line take the food and dump it in the trash can before they even sit down except for the desert if it is something that they like. So the kids do not eat breakfast or lunch, which affects their education(I hate sounding like a liberal but it is true) and when they get home are hungry and so their parents let them eat crap because to their knowledge their child ate healthy food in school.
    Yep, changing the school meal programs will just mean more government money being thrown in the trash unless they decide that they are going to force feed the little chillin’s.

    This wasn’t a result of THIS law, or any other federal law. It was school’s misinterpretation of a Texas state law.

    There also seems to be a couple of variations of this story. Some say the girl got detention, and others say she was suspended.

    I do know that schools have a compelling reason to restrict certain foods from being shared. My friend has a daughter who is allergic to Red Dye #3 which is found in all sorts of different foods. She is old enough now to know which foods contain this chemical and knows that if there is a doubt not to eat anything that she is unsure of. But when she was younger, she didn’t really have that knowledge and understanding and she got seriously sick when another child shared some food with her.

    There are also kids who are allergic to peanuts. I remember when my kids were in school there was a kid who couldn’t be in the same room with peanuts or peanut butter. So the school restricted other kids from bringing peanut products into class. But those are all safety concerns, not nutritional. I can see having rules in place that prohibit sharing of food, or even bringing certain foods into a certain area. But if a parent wants to send their tubby to school with bacon-wrapped Hostess Twinkies and two large bags of Lay’s Sour Cream and Onion potato chips with a two-litre bottle of Coke to wash it all down with for lunch, then that is up to them.

    Sir George bloviates:

    I think this effort is rather pointless, because what a kid eats at some particular meal isn’t that important, as the food intake is averaged out and ends up as poo anyway. But these new regulations do point to a far more important and serious issue, which isn’t what kids put in their mouths but what they put in their heads. A snack the child eats will only affect him for a few hours or days, but a book he reads can effect him for a lifetime.

    Which is why the federal government needs to regulate books in school libraries that take federal funds. Most, of course, should be banned as containing dangerous or socially unacceptable thoughts, images, or situations. Most of what Mark Twain wrote comes to mind, as does almost anything written after 1920. Ban it. Ban all of it, lest children be exposed to things far worse than a few extra calories that they’ll burn off on the playground.

    Perhaps these new food regulations will provide the precedent so the House can address the issue at the start of the next session.

    But as long as the government is providing this food for less than cost or free, then the government can decide what to provide.

    But it isn’t provided for free. We’re paying for it. And we shouldn’t be.

    It isn’t the federal fucking government’s job to use the schools to feed anyone, and it certainly isn’t their job to feed them fucking breakfast.

    This bill is loaded down with federal nanny bullshit:

    One glaring example from the top of page 141(and there are other “programs” Floowups, surveys, and rule-making opportunities throughout this well-polished turd):

    ‘‘(2) PROGRAM.—The Secretary shall carry out a program to assist eligible schools, State and local agencies, Indian tribal organizations, agricultural producers or groups of agricultural producers, and nonprofit entities through grants and technical assistance to implement farm to school programs that improve access to local foods in eligible schools.”

    Really? Really?

    So the idiots in DC think that either the evil local farmers are all conspiring to keep their products out of the local schools;

    Or that the local schools are too stupid to know how to buy food from local producers;

    Or that farmers, who have been selling surplus product since they figured out how to move beyond subsistance farming were somehow too stupid to find a market for their wares.

    Thank God for those Haaaaavvvvvaaaarrrd edumincated loyahs in the Senate to help save the day for them with yet another fucking government program! How the hell did we ever make this far without them….and more importantly, how will we ever survive the application of even more layers of this bullshit?

    It isn’t free. It never was. And that’s the point.

    If I’m at the point where my kids need these lunches [Now with an extra .6 cents a piece in Federal Subsiudies and Grants!], its because these fucking theives in DC could not stop buying votes with MY money, and there was nothing left of MY money for me to spend on MY children’s food.

    Again, are you expecting the school to be feeding your child at 5000 calories? Seriously? The taxpayer should foot that bill for you?

    This bill has nothing to do with what YOU choose to feed your child, only what the SCHOOL will feed him. If he requires more, then he needs to bring his own. There is nothing in the bill that restricts what the child can bring from home.

    As a parent, it isn’t mandatory that you allow the school to feed your child. The program is only there to feed those children who aren’t being fed at home, or who have parents who are too lazy to provide a child’s breakfast or lunch. Don’t like what the school is feeding your child? Feed your own child, and quit bellyaching about how the taxpayer funded food consists of.

    What is so hard to understand about this? So the kid doesn’t like the food. If the kid isn’t eating at home, pretty soon he will learn to like the food — or go hungry.

    To nobody in particular (but if the shoe fits…)

    I personally feel that if you cannot care for, and feed your own children, then you shouldn’t have had them. Why should I have to subsidize YOUR kids with meals? And then have you complain about the meals they are being fed by the government?

    If it were up to me, I would take the kids from you and give them to parents who can and will provide for them.

    The thing is, it ISN’T on anyone’s agenda to do that. We can sit here for days thinking up the “what-ifs” and “I-wonders”. The long and short of it is this: the bill was designed to provide guidelines for healthy food being served as part of a government subsidized school feeding program. Not all schools receive these federal grants, and if a school doesn’t want to participate in such a program, then they don’t have to apply.

    As far as a parent wanting to supply his or her child on their own — they still have the freedom and the option of doing just that.

But that is a safety net of limited proportions — enough to provide shelter, food, and clothing at a basic level until they are able to get back on their feet again.

    Unemployment is a different animal. It is insurance that you’ve either directly or indirectly paid into in case you lose your job through no fault of your own. You aren’t going to live comfortable on unemployment — as some of you can already attest to — but it will help prevent you from being tossed out on the street until you are able to secure another job or income.

    But food stamps and welfare? Nobody “earns” that. It is a giveaway, and the government has every right to dictate how and on what you spend it on.

    Unless I’m wrong, the whole point of the local foods thing is to help local producers and work their way through the mountains of red tape that get in the way of the schools’ being able to buy fresh produce from local producers.

    What red tape might that be?

    Do counties and states micromanage schools (which are subdivisions under their jurisdiction) to the point that they make it difficult to procure food from local producers?

    Or is it some sort of federal nanny-state bullshit law where the Federal government somehow usurped authority and imposed “red tape” into a process where none need have existed?

    When the cure is as onerous as the disease, you can bet that both were originally a government “solution” to a perceived problem, and the distance of the government from the cure is in inverse proportion to its deliterious effects.

    The operation created a big distraction to motorists heading eastbound on I-20 in rush hour, and many motorists let the AJC and the WSB traffic center hear about it.

    But the operation, which also involves the Transportation Security Administration, is top-secret before it happens, Minerly said.

    How nice, now TSA is conducting secret ops on the nation’s highways. Say “Hellooooooo Police State!” Never mind that it’s been shown that highway checkpoints do little, if anything to curb crime.

    The reason why the breakfast program was started was because studies show that kids who do not eat breakfast struggle more than those who do not. Unfortunately because of how the program is regulated most kids past the age of 3rd grade don’t bother to eat the breakfast they are given because it is not cool and not the crap that they want to eat and federal regs prevent telling a child they have to at least eat part of the meal. So the meal is just tossed out. Why give the kid a tray of food you know is going to be tossed out, because if the child does not take possession of the food the school cannot record that meal for reimbursement from the Federal government.
    It is a system that has many many more flaws, I know too much about it and it sickens me how much taxpayer money is abused and how much corruption goes on. I bet I could get anyone qualified for free(tax-payer paid) meals, I could but would not do this since it disgusts me and is illegal. You just have to fill out the forms in the right way.

    I am a Canadian citizen, and to my knowledge we “participants” in the healthcare system have no choice about participating–the monthly premiums are deducted from our paycheques just like our taxes are. So the only way to avoid paying is either tax evasion(which is illegal) or stop working for a living and starve or start sucking the gov’t welfare teat.

    Costs are not fixed — that is capitalism. If you’ve been providing services without keeping up with the funding, then eventually you either raise those funds or you cut the services.

    The problem the states have been having — California isn’t the only one in financial trouble, is mostly due to the economy, and the lower tax revenue caused by more and more people being unemployed. If you don’t earn an income, you don’t pay taxes. Lower tax revenue makes for large shortfalls. In order to keep certain services running, you either have to raise taxes, cut services, or both.

    Then you have the jackasses who want to “privatize” everything because they don’t want to pay taxes. They are too stupid to understand that they will end up paying MORE money for LESS services because whoever provides those services will have a much larger overhead, and will take a lot of the money out in the form of profits. Apparently these people are not able to think things through all the way to the end, they just get to the part where they won’t be paying out as much in taxes, and how wonderful those services will be provided by that magical “free market” horseshit.

    I was using it in the context that Weyland used. He complained that his $54 premium “subsidized” others, so I’ve been pointing out how he is being “subsidized” by others, in that the meager premium he pays doesn’t come close to covering the actual costs involved in even one office visit.

    Additionally, the meager amount of money we individually pay in taxes doesn’t come close to paying for the services and systems we all take for granted. We rely on money from other people to make all of this work.

    If I visit Nebraska, I didn’t pay for the roads I would be traveling on, someone else did. So they are in essence, subsidizing me, aren’t they?

    Grammar Czar said the following:

    When I pay my doctor, I’m not contributing. I’m paying for a service that I use

    And I submit that you are not paying the full cost for your visit, that if others hadn’t already been paying for the time, equipment, location, and labor, then you couldn’t afford the actual cost of that visit.

    The use of the word “subsidy” was probably wrong, but so is your definition, that tends to limit “subsidies” to government. It was used initially by Weyland, and it came close to what was needed. In essence, by everyone paying into a pool, they are being subsidized by others when they need to use the service or infrastructure.

    This also works the same way in the private sector. You pay a specific rate for say, cable service. Let’s just say you pay Comcrap $142 per month for TV and Internet. Because there are hundreds of thousands of other customers using the Comcrap infrastructure, Comcrap is able to provide you with that particular service you want for $142 per month, and they still make a profit. But if you are the only customer, there is no way they would be able to provide that same service to you at even ten times that much. Or a thousand times that much. You pay what you pay because there are a lot of others paying for that service. Like you, they helped pay for the infrastructure, so Comcrap subsidizes the cost to you while providing the service you request.

    Getting back to the original, Weyland pays a small premium every month and complains that he is somehow ‘subsidizing’ others. If so, then HE is being subsidized by them as well.

    It is just how it works.

The only thing MS gets out of it is that they aren’t hauled up on anti-trust violations.

    I don’t “subsidize” the airlines if I don’t fly. I don’t “subsidize” Walmart if I shop at Target. If I donate to walmart (or am forced to pay taxes to support them), and I don’t shop there, THAT becomes a subsidy.

    A true subsidy is like us providing for the NEA (arts, not education). I get NOTHING in return. NOTHING. I helped subsidize government motors. I got NOTHING in return. The least they could have done was send me a new car, since I paid for one.
