Nullify now. Call your the representative in you STATE (not in D.C.) government and demand a law to protect your children from federal tampering in school lunches.

Oh and demand that states no lose their tax dollars they sent to DC for schools, the USDA or whatever. Demand equal protection under the 14th amendment.

YES! We should all march on Washington! Unless of course we are having a foot removed between now and then because of type-II diabetes.

What is it to you?If you are not smart enough to change your diet you deserve losing a foot.

Well moron, usually people go to school to learn, and I don't think many 8-year-olds know how to feed themselves properly or have the self-control to do so if given a choice.

That's sort of the whole point.

And I ate Butterfingers and drank Pepsi for lunch when in the eighth grade.

So what?

I'm perfectly healthy, in my early 50's, and anything but overweight.

Deal with that!

When you were a kid, there was probably one fat kid in your entire class.

Today more than a third of all school-age children are obese according to the CDC.

I'm more interested in "dealing with that."

I will agree with you that the families you are speaking of (the 8 year olds who are mostly nonwhite school children) are not smart enough to see to it that their children eat properly and need to be fed at gunpoint to do the right thing.

Yes I will.

When the majority of 8 year olds where white, there wasn't a need to point a gun at them and tell them what to eat.

As we know, blacks and Hispanics have the highest rate of obesity in America. It is obviously their problem and the rest have to suffer for it. Just like education standards have to be lowered because of them.

This is about race and the failures of these groups and the meddling that must go on because of their irresponsibility.

'Deal with that' via your own kids.

Do not worry about mine, or anyone else's, unless you are willing to feed them at YOUR expense-and the parents don't paste you one for sticking your beak in where it doesn't belong.

THAT is the ticket.

Alive-I still dring 3 cokes a day and I've never been over 100 pounds. My cholesterol is so close to the low end of the spectrum that they talk about putting me on medication to raise it, but they don't because my ratio of good to bad is perfect. My sugar level is never over 95. Everyone's system is different. The one-size-fits-all government programs are not only unconstitutional and intrusive, they're pointless.

All those Government programs do is enrich self-satisfied bureaucrats. That's all they do.

Mom fed me OK-I didn't starve. I've done better than that by my own kids, through simple observation.

I don't drink much soda these days, nor do I eat a lot of candy (once in awhile I like Twizzlers or a Snickers bar), and I'm grateful that our grown kids don't either. My cholesterol is fine, blood pressure very low (so am prone to chilling) but otherwise I'm just fine.

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.
