by Steve MacDonald March 15, 2017

The School Nutrition Association (SNA) which represents 54,000 school cafeteria professionals see the Trump Presidency as an opportunity to roll back some of the overreaches of the Obama years. Federal meddling in the form of S. 3307, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, has been more like the healthy food goes in the trashcan and kids […]

GrokShot: Obligation, or assumed responsibility?

by Skip July 12, 2015

First this:  As nouns the difference between obligation and responsibility is that obligation is the act of binding oneself by a social, legal, or moral tie to someone while responsibility is the state of being responsible, accountable, or answerable. Notice that this is a PERSONAL issue, not an organizational one. Now this: City food service […]

by Skip February 20, 2015

Essentially, that is what she has said to America – my your children will only know what I allow and then they will LOVE it!  I read FAR more posts from around the blogosphere than what I can ever write about so I’m in the process of going back to some of those old ones […]

So I disregarded all that Federal Govt nutritional diet advice this time…

by Skip December 28, 2014

After all, Michelle Obama’s federalization of our school cafeterias has turned out so DANDY, hasn’t it?  Pictures and pictures of more and more kids literally trashing their lunches and waging a #WarOnMichelle for the absolutely disgusting meals they had to buy.  No competition – Progressive Michelle also went after the vending machines and bake sales […]

Common Core, New Hampshire, And Pleading the Tenth

by Steve MacDonald November 22, 2014

Ann Marie Banfield – Breitbart (yes, that Ann Marie, and that Breitbart) In New Hampshire’s last legislative session, no bill sparked more unexpected public engagement than HB 1508. It consisted of a simple statement: “Terminate all plans, programs, activities, and expenditures relative to the implementation of the common core state educational standards which have been […]

Problem is, Obama has said stuff like this before

by Skip June 27, 2014

This just struck me the wrong way, but given the attitude he exudes, I’m not surprised: Obama Jokes about Executive Order to Make Boys Play It’s funny, because President Obama issues a lot of orders. “And last month, three young girls wrote to me that boys aren’t fair because they don’t pass the ball in gym […]

Kids, cafeteria managers, Parents, and even school officials are rebelling against centrally planned lunch menus that cost more, taste less, leave kids hungry, and fill up landfills.  Yet that is what the ‘experts decree.  Makes you wonder how we were so successful before they came along and ‘fixed it?’ (Note to progressives: Danger – There […]

Liberals like to use government to force their worldview on others, from as high up and as far away as they can, preferably with layers of bureaucracy between you–the more people to finger for their own failure the better.  So when Michelle Obama spun her domestic web of progressive meddling across the public school lunch […]

So, did Michelle O’s version of Big Government all over our kids food work out?

by Skip July 16, 2013

Conservatives believe that the best government is a limited one and the closer to to the Citizens it is supposed to serve, the better.  That way, it is much easier for Citizens to correct the actions and decisions made by their public servants. After all, local is where life is lived and when things go […]

Quick Thought – Oh, Steve…..

by Skip July 9, 2013

Two snippets from Grokster Steve’s post “Lunch Racists Bail On Michelle-O” caught my eye (emphasis mine): The Government limits the choices by force of law but human nature (and natures laws) trump man made laws every time so the kids end up skipping the Michelle-O in favor of quick alternatives.   So the law effectively creates […]

The Left’s War on Education

by Steve MacDonald January 12, 2013

The left’s objection to even one tax dollar finding its way into the hands of a church is legion.  It is (apparently) a matter of even greater concern that we might engage in tax policy that accidentally encourages others–by allowing them to keep more of their own money–to give some of it to a religious […]

S.3307 (2010) is the legislation that empowered the Feds to regulate local school lunches.
