We spend way too much on subsidized lunches. Now the vegetables are in the garbage and kids bringing their own lunch. Unintended consequences?

Now this is what I call, sticking it to the man. Students in Wisconsin are protesting federal regulations that require school lunches to be no more than 850 calories. But in the big picture, this isn't about school lunches, it's about the federal government over regulating pretty much everything. Is it really necessary for the feds to be monitoring what kind of lunch is served in local schools? No and it's a waste of money and resources.

By 7 a.m. Monday, senior Nick Blohm already had burned about 250 calories in the Mukwonago High School weight room.
