If a school wants to run an optional lunch program via local businesses (we do that here) to make a couple of bucks then I'm all for it. A high school cafeteria is fine, the school can tell them to make sure they have some healthy options. Don't get the whole government involvement here. Just seems to overly complicate things.
    Sure. Kind of makes my point though that there's no need for more oversight when the district already has an entire division dedicated to the issue.

    Unfortunately mission creep happens in all sorts of fields. So we end up with a nutrition services division in our school district and then wonder why we're always being told that the district doesn't have enough money and that we need to vote for a tax hike. However, at this point there's little to no chance that nutrition services ever gets shuttered so in that case I'll let them do their jobs and say no thank you to increased mandates from Washington DC.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I don't believe in mandates from the federal government (particularly the first lady), influence I like though. That was clearly something she was passionate about and I think she could have used her voice to shine some light on areas serving trash to kids. I think had she done that she might have gotten more support from all sides if she asked for schools to make better choices rather than tried to legislate change. But that's a complaint I have for political leaders, I think they often waste an opportunity to influence behaviour.

    I want to make it clear that I’m not saying that her intentions could coming from the wrong place, but sometimes the best way is not always what people think.

    Speaking of bombshells...I'm straight up tired of that word. We need to come up with some new lingo there because it's been so overused it's become meaningless. It's as played out as adding "gate" to the end of every scandal to make it sound like Watergate.
    Does the fact the Republicans at the time didn’t see the need to impeach Obama for his actions, minimize the illegality of Trumps actions? That’s a misdirect.

    This is no different than Republicans telling Dems to stop bringing up Bush during Obama’s tenure.

    Obama’s gone. He’s played no part in Trump running his White House like one of the 5 families in NY.

    Actually worse than one of the 5 families to be honest. They’re all typically run a whole hell of a lot more honourably, soundly and intelligently. 🤣

    80% of black people are probably right. Not his fault but it's brought a lot of racists out of hiding.

    I don't think she was replacing steak at the local high school caf with a baked potato.
