Jeezuz what next?
Is the Federal government constitutionally allowed to ban such things as bake sales?
Can the government force your kid to eat GMOs?
Are we going mad?
The whole business of governing is getting far too damn personal IMHO.....
Where in the constitution of the USA does it say the feds can call the shots on what you feed your kids?
When will the American people finally tell the US Gov. to Butt the hell out of their personal choices?
This is a sick sick society.....

They have not banned bake sales. Schools just can't have them during school hours on school property or during the week, UNLESS they meet certain (low sugar) standards.

Did you read your link?

What gives government the right to legislate those standards? They poison our water and food, but are telling us not to eat too much sugar? It's insanity and another blow to society free from Government meddling.

Ever heard of the Dept of Education?

The Federal Role in Education



That means the Federal contribution to elementary and secondary education is about 10.8 percent, which includes funds not only from the Department of Education (ED) but also from other Federal agencies, such as the Department of Health and Human Services' Head Start program and the Department of Agriculture's School Lunch program.

Although ED's share of total education funding in the U.S. is relatively small, ED works hard to get a big bang for its taxpayer-provided bucks by targeting its funds where they can do the most good. This targeting reflects the historical development of the Federal role in education as a kind of "emergency response system," a means of filling gaps in State and local support for education when critical national needs arise.

I owned a restaurant for 10+ years, you couldnt pay me enough to eat a bake sale cupcake. With as many crazy people there are in the world, I just wouldnt trust the product. From filthy kitchens and roaches to Crazy people spiking the cookies with something harmful. No thank you. Ill support the process by buying a cupcake, but I would take it home and throw it out.

NO ONE is telling parents what to feed their kids. Are you serious?

Jesus! The right-wing propaganda machine is hard at work, here...

So, they can't even have a bake sale? It's not even like they have those all the time so that kids have a steady diet of bake sale.

That's just stupid and unnecessary no matter how much you try to defend it.

By your own %ages the Fed has a 10% stake in kids educations....
To be fair they should be able to make reccomendations....
But they certainly don't own the system which property owners and parents of LOCALES pay for.....
Get out of the peoples lives and get on with fixing the real and pressing problems....don't make it that much harder for people to support their own kids funding efforts....
The overreach of the Feds is getting egregious...cupcakes or no.....

The school can't teach my kid to read, write or do arithmetic, but he knows all the sexual positions gender orientations and they make darn good and sure he never comes within a mile of a cupcake!

They CAN have a bake sale! Read the article. They aren't banned. Stupid sensationalist titles...

a reply to: Benevolent Heretic

But only if it's nowhere near the school or at any time when school might be in session unless they sell stuff no one wants to buy because the treats taste like crap.

So, no, they can't have bake sales.

WHY does the Government need to be involved at all? They shouldn't be.

The fact that you don't see government meddling at a problem is scary.
