I agree. Every time a Democrat or Republican sounds good enough on the stump to get elected, he turns on us in D.C. and becomes just another hog at the trough, trampling our U.S. Constitution as he wallows around that disgusting pigsty on the Potomac. Third party candidates are where all the good ideas and honest statesmen reside.

Ask any DHS cult member, and they'll regurgitate some cultist jargon about how the TSA's gropes, thefts and searches are perfectly Constitutional because, well... "They just are. When an authority figure tells you something is good, then it is, y'know? Like, duh! What the gub'mint does is lee - gull, 'cause like, they're the gub'mint..." It degenerates from there, and suddenly the cult's favorite thought stopping phrase, 9-11, 9-11, 9-11 comes into play.

Talk to few of them, try to reason with them, and you realize they're simply members of the DHS cult. They are hopelessly indoctrinated into a cult that encourages antagonistic we vs they mentality, paranoid delusions about omnipresent "domestic terrorists" and magical thinking with respect to their useless equipment's supposed efficacy. We have to shut this cult down. It is dangerous to all our liberties.

The TSA is an offense to everything decent and right the U.S. used to stand for. Their thugs are our nation's disgrace, because they don't know they're thugs. Our public education system has produced these mindless authoritarian drones who imagine their crimes are legal and Constitutional simply because their morally insane "leadership" has declared it so. These people have no moral compass, no reasoning skills and no human decency. The extend of a TSA thug's delusions knows no bounds. They regularly declare they've witnessed various types of "real" explosives, when in reality they've just seen mock-ups and training videos. Their idiocy is the culmination of decades of staring slack-jawed at "reality shows" on TV.
Like you, I never force my children to eat anything. It just doesn't make sense. Forcing them to eat something just makes the food more repugnant to them and fosters anger. I involve my children in food preparation, particularly when introducing new foods. When they are familiar with the ingredients and proud of the dish, it's far easier to get them to try it. By not making a big issue out of my children's passing rejections of certain foods, I've allowed my children to quietly and gracefully change their minds and enjoy the food later. It's normal for children to dislike a few foods at earlier stages of their development, then enjoy these same foods later. Turning meals into a battleground sets children up for eating disorders.
We homeschool too. This AM our daughter, who is skinny as a rail and just took up running, scrounged through the fridge for the leftover hamburgers from last night. She made herself a burger on top of her usual breakfast, and I don't expect her to be bashful at lunch or dinner today either. The food is all wholesome. I make all our bread with diverse whole grains and serve fruits and vegetables with every meal. I feed my family good food, which doesn't mean I starve 'em. Deliberately starving kids just to prove some goofy dietary point is child abuse. If parents did it social services would haul our kids away. The government commits child abuse with impunity.
This is the problem with fascism. Fascists always think they're benevolent dictators forcing the ignorant masses into line for our own good. Michelle Obomanation and the other food fascists don't understand that "one size fits all" doesn't work for child nutrition, and is a complete and total disaster for teen nutrition. We feed our children an unusually healthy and well balanced diet. This does not prevent our teenagers from occasionally developing a desperate need for extra carbohydrates or protein. When they enter a growth spurt or start a new sport they become voracious. You can't feed the kids engaged in sports the same diet you imagine to be best for tubby teens whose major athletic outlet is video games.
