Thank goodness I live in a free country where if I don't like what they serve in the school cafeteria I can send my children a lunch everyday. No need to complain. Just take personal responsibility. I don't hear anyone forcing children to buy a school lunch!

Are you serious/?Do you know that they have the power (as they have done-see comment above or below) to seize your kid's food if it is not in "compliance'"? Don't be naive. A lot has changed in almost four years. And none of it good...

"I don't hear anyone forcing children to buy a school lunch!"

I have read that it had indeed happened, where a child was forced to buy a school lunch because 'they' did not approve of his homemade lunch.

As far as living in a free country, let's hold our breath. The socialists/communists are doing everything they can to change that. Vote Republican for a better chance for freedom!

If you want documented proof of the Socialist, Marxist, and Islamic influence on Obama and Company, just read 'The Manchurian President.' It'll scare the pants off you! And it explains a lot about Obama and his policies.

Just watch "America 2016" by Dinesh D'Sousa. It's available online. It explains Obama's Anti-Colonialism -- and to him, WE (the USA) are Colonialists. He wants us in the gutter with the ne'er-do-wells. All of us. He wants us "the same" as those poor places in the worth with not enough of anything.

Did you hear about the case in North Carolina? Some federal government muckadeemuck was present investigating the school and forced a child to throw away her bag lunch and take a school-sanctioned one (which in the end was probably less healthy than what her mom had sent and was charged to the home). About the only real solution at this point is for more people to yank their kids and start home-schooling systems.

Or, of course , start voting in better candidates.

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.

Perhaps the real motive is to starve students into slimming down. Just ask students in Pierre, South Dakota who, too, are in an all-out revolt.
