The tacos were good, pizza burgers were awesome, tater tots with ketchup were off the hook.

If people are fat that means they over eat and/or dont exercise.

The "battle against obesity" though superficially noble gives the state an incredible amount of discretionary power over personal choice and liberty. What about sleep requirements?

First they came for the smokers, but I wasn't a smoker...

A free people are entitled to make choices, good, bad or indifferent. Controlling food (look how noble--it's for nutrition) gives the impetus to gain more control of the selections in ALL phases of life--not just the cafeteria line.


As long as you don't expect me to pay for your Medicare and SSI when your lifestyle finally renders you sick, broke and unable to work.

Reminds me of Ayn Ran, always complained about the moochers then she smokes herself into the hospital and then has taxpayers ponying up money for it.

We can say that about anyone that gets sick then, no? Joggers developing leg problems, having heart attacks while running...what are we supposed to do not give them medical treatment or give them medical treatment because YOU approve?

That is why health care should be FREE MARKET BASED NOT GOVERNMENT SPONSORED (ie, NO OBAMACARE). If I make poor choices, I pay more. If I don't, I pay less due to the SPECIFICS of my situation. NOT A GOVERNMENT MANDATE that is one size fits all and that i must buy insurance and I must eat, etc., as they dictate.

That is why so many are supporting Dr. Paul.

We're supposed to be okaying horse meat. I have no idea why we dont use the horse, goat, other meats in fast food. If we kill them, we should use the animals and not waste.

As far as the issue in the article, in my perfect world people should have the freedom to kill themselves any way they choose and I should have the freedom to choose not to support them doing it or when they become ill. In the real world, there are a lot of idiots out there who cant feed their kids right and absolutely do not care. Probably shouldnt have had the kids in the first place. As compassionate human beings we should care for these kids who did not ask to be raised by morons. However, checking lunches goes too far. A parent should have the right to pack a lunch and not be required to pay for it when some idiot says such a good meal isnt good enough. I am glad to see the outcome of this particular case and hope this is isolated. If we must do this, at least dont let someone who cant figure out a turkey 'wich and nice sides are better than the nuggets, free meals or paid school lunches. Just my humble opinion. There CAN be a happy medium since we do not live in my perfect world and we should probably work to meet it rather than griping and doing nothing.

Spot on! All activities have an implied risk--even those deemed 'healthy.' a free society allows choice DETERMINED by the individual (or in this case parent) NOT BY A BUEAROCRAT FOLLOWING A STATE MANDATE.

It's nice that an apology was issued. But the bigger issue is a system that intrudes into lunch bags (and those that will willingly permit it).

There is an anti-foaming agent in chicken nuggets along with a host of other things that are not needed to fry chicken.
source

The FDA has admitted that chicken meat that's sold in the good ole U.S. of A. conains arsenic that is purposely added to the chicken feed.

It's not about my approval. It's the simple reality that many people are dependent on the state for Health Care. Since this is the case the state has to intervene in lifestyle to lower costs

Joggers with knee problems are vastly outnumbered by the Obese with Diabetes. You better find another example.

Maybe the government should focus on making the making of food and processing of food safer and cleaner and healthier.

This is why it is important to learn before dictating whose lifestyles we agree with. The question is who will be in the cross hairs next? Actually you are demonstrating a major problem in the thought processes that go into universal health care.


It’s not weight gain which causes diabetes. It’s diabetes which causes weight gain. The majority of people with type 2 diabetes (there is no such thing as Type II diabetes) have an excess of insulin in their blood, which causes the body to lay down white adipose tissue. (There are two types of fat, white and brown, and it’s the white fat that is associated with health problems.)

I have long suspected as much and good to see people catching on.

you know what 30 years ago when I was in school they put the kids like myself whose parents sent them lunch in a separate isolated room and made us feel like we were looser's because our parents gave a damn enough to have us eat right.

To hell with a system that punishes everyone for those who are bad, some people drink beer at the beach and fight so no one can have a beer at the beach, some people can't figure out how to eat right so our kids are punished, some people can't pass HS biology and understand the drugs they ingest so no one can do drugs, some people can't control their drinking so having wine with dinner is for all intents and purposes a felony if you want to eat out.

Don't harp on any one example you all know what i'm saying.

Leave us alone and let the darwin awards be handed out to the dummies

I heard about this on A.M. radio on my drive to work this morning. Absolutely ridiculous! I wonder what else they gave this girl besides chicken nuggets? French fries, sugar cookies, fruit punch!? Seriously the gov. can keep the F away from my kids and family....I know much better than they as to what is healthy and what is garbage!

No
herbivores = FOOD

grass, plants....etc = Food food (thats the stuff that food eats so it can grow up and become food)

young rabbits eat grass, so they can grow and become food

calves eat grass, so they can grow and become food
grass is food for FOOD

Someone earlier asked for another sources.

Here's another source from the Carolina journal

The article says the girl had to have a new lunch, but she only ate the nuggets. She probably threw out the rest.
The article states that the girl didn't eat the lunch her mother gave her after she was told by the lunch lady that there was something wrong with it.

Also, the mother said her daughter is picky, especially with vegetables . However, in my opinion, I don't feel her daughter is too picky if she is willing to eat what her mother packed.

The article doesn't say, but I would be willing to bet real money that the lunchbox cop was A) overweight, B) An undereducated minority.

Why do you say that, you may ask? Are you a RACIST?

Nope. Walk into any government agency. Who works there, for the most part? Minorities that have been ground through training programs to do specific paper-pushing tasks. You see one or two token white guys so they maintain the illusion of "fairness". Government jobs are liberals' way of putting "underprivileged" people to work. Bigger government "creates jobs".

What better way to enforce a socialist educational system than to train someone that gets a real sense of importance by telling little kids whether their lunch is up to spec? Smart people would certainly question that logic and be a problem employee.

Sorry - I'm probably not PC enough for most of you.
