These progs think they have not only have the right to tell people what to eat, but to give underage girls "morning after" pills. Good God, what a mess.

It makes sense that the government should decide what to serve at a public school considering it's a friggin taxpayer funded public school.
But if you'd rather fish for red herrings, I'm cool with that too.

Stupid:

The taxpayers should decide NOT the government. The TAXPAYERS own the schools, NOT the government.

This is why parents are pulling kids out of public schools and using charters and private schools

The taxpayers are too busy flooding message boards with fears of communism.

That's no solution. The private schools by and large are run by educators who are just as brainwashed and usefully idiotic as any public school teacher. At the private school where my wife teaches, the board has to constantly ferret out the cultural Marxists and the progressives who try to get in the door.

And half the parents are so braindead by public education, that they constantly do the same stupid things: like complain to the teacher because she won't give their little angels undeserved grades and praise for doing nothing.

It makes sense if you think socialism makes sense.

"But if you'd rather fish for red herrings, I'm cool with that too."

This isn't a red herring, but a "red" policy. And stupid fools like you enjoy these kind of things.
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.
