    Gotta remember this about the nazis...why did they do the things they did? Because they could.

    This is not one of those times.
    Wow, you even capitalized Right's Noise Machine. I guess that makes it a real thing.

    Trying to change the subject? Not working so well, is it?

    Here is the issue: A school bureaucrat unilaterally decided that a child's lunch didn't meet his/her personal nutritional standards and imposed a cost on the parents. The bureaucrat imposed his judgment over the parents' judgment, and then commanded that they pay for it. The amount involved is not very large, but the principle is huge. What if the school didn't like the kid's lunchbox (all those nasty corporate characters and logos) or notebook (is the notebook manufacturer unionized? Green? Do they give to the right causes?)? Can they demand that the parents purchase a school-approved lunchbox with a PBS character on it instead of a corporate one (My daughter will go berserk if they try to replace Scooby Doo with Nina Totenberg)? Can a school decide that a child's wardrobe isn't up to school standards and purchase a new one and bill the parents (Just think, Che t-shirts for everyone!)? Where does the school get the authority to decide how I will spend my money?

    You mean because the Chinese attacked Pearl Harbor? Well, that's understandable.



    (And even if they served sushi it would not be the most worrisome thing fed to the bodies or minds at Sidwell Friends)

    Turkey - old dead bird takes a long time from kill to consume, even if it's Boars Head. If it's cheap turkey, it's full of grease, gelatin, salt, and of course the decaying flesh of some kind of bird.

    Cheese- No other animal eats the milk of another species. Think about it- would you snack down on a cow's titty for a direct connection? It's probably not real cheese anyway. The label of cheese slices (and I know because my mother insists on eating them) is 14 things other than milk.

    Potato chips - one ounce of potato chips has 10.6 grams of fat.

    The apple juice could be real or it could be some kind of juicy crap with HFCS and color added along with a mess of chemicals.

    Ok if all of what you wrote is true what right does the school have in forcing her to eat something else? Never mind that chicken nuggets are filled with rat shit, hairs and what not.

    And three chicken nuggets is a vast improvement over that.

    So what? It IS NOT the schools job to monitor kids lunches. I wouldn't give a shit if all the kid had was jell-o, candy bars and a bag of sugar, it's still not their place to change what the parent's sent to school with them.

    I grew up eating in the cafeteria at school....that shit is in no way healthier than what the mother sent to school with her daughter.

    You both have a point on the nuggets, my response was simply to the quality of the bag lunch. Of everything that was in the bag, the banana and the paper bag were probably the most wholesome.
