    You're right. It's also a smokescreen. While we're busy trying to get smaller government, less spending and lower taxes, the left is sneaking up on 4 year olds and confiscating their lunches.

    and the fact that a school system/state is forcing kids to eat what a parent may not want them too is pretty damn high on mine.

    Do you have anything substantive to offer in rebuttal, or is this just going to be another of your snarkfests?

    Outstanding! You regurgitate like a penguin!
    Snarkfest. Not surprised. Can we assume that you approve of the school's actions, then? Or is your goal here simply to insult everyone who doesn't in order to demonstrate your otherwise hilarious presumptions of mental superiority?

    Maybe there are, or not, but where does the school get the authority to override the parents' wishes as to their child's lunch? Just answer that one, itty-bitty question, snark-boy.

    So, the principle that the government can unilaterally dictate that a product that has been in production for over a century and is demonstrably safe be taken off the market in order to replace it with a product which costs more, entails serious health hazards and provides no benefit except to the company that lobbied for the change is okay with you?

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    There's a difference between being informed and being told what you can or cannot do. Not that it makes a lick of sense to you.
