    Just when I thought I'd couldn't be surprised by anything else our .gov does.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Don’t touch my brownies!

    A child nutrition bill on its way to President Barack Obama — and championed by the first lady — gives the government power to limit school bake sales and other fundraisers that health advocates say sometimes replace wholesome meals in the lunchroom.

    Republicans, notably Sarah Palin, and public school organizations decry the bill as an unnecessary intrusion on a common practice often used to raise money.

    “This could be a real train wreck for school districts,” Lucy Gettman of the National School Boards Association said Friday, a day after the House cleared the bill. “The federal government should not be in the business of regulating this kind of activity at the local level.”

    The legislation, part of first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to stem childhood obesity, provides more meals at school for needy kids, including dinner, and directs the Agriculture Department to write guidelines to make those meals healthier. The legislation would apply to all foods sold in schools during regular class hours, including in the cafeteria line, vending machines and at fundraisers.

    Un-friggin-believable. How about before any elected official passes a law they practice what they preach. So, before they tell us what we should and should not be eating they get on a scale and show us who up there in DC wonderland does not fit the category of overweight! THEN, as soon as they ALL lose weight and come down to what they set the standard as, I’ll not eat brownies from the school bake sale.

    We don't have a "smiley" icon with enough of a shocked and disgusted look to properly portray what I'm feeling.

    Listen!!!!.....:dunno: it can't be too bad..I don't hear the sheeple bleeting... If I had a kid in school he or she would be taking lunch from home... why trust the school to feed a good lunch to your kid... of course they will make a law against non Fed Guv approved food stuffs entering the building.. lets see..there will be a weapons cop, dope cop / dog, a PC cop, now a food cop... pretty soon they will be looking at your daughters bod with their scanners and putting it on you tube for the wankers..

    How about a national school walk out day... walk out and stay out until they stop this crap..

    mdprepper I sold my soul to The_Blob. He had candy...

    At the elementary school that my kids went to, they USED to be able to have cupcakes for the kids birthdays. At first we could make them from home and send them in, then they made us go to store bought only (it wasn't sanitary if it came from your home). Then they decided that they would no longer allow birthday celebrations (because not everyone believed in celebrating). Now, if you are packing your childs lunch, you can no longer send peanut butter (too many other children with allergies). I am just sick of all this.

    Considering the shape of this nation's economy-- the unemployment, the sad foreign affairs, big pharma shooting us with untested vaccines-- this move definitely instills confidence in the fraud at the WH. (snark)

    I have an idea. Instead of being the food nazi lets give kids longer recess and more gym. Because if they dont eat it here they will eat it at home. Then when they are in high school we can show them how to do manual labor:eek:

    Have you also heard about the lemonade stands that were shut down because the kids didn't have a permit?

    The next generation of kids is going to grow up in a very different world. :(
