A bright, new day is finally dawning!
America, celebrate! You now have a MOTUS (Mother of the United States). First Lady Michelle Obama declares:
"But when our kids spend so much of their time each day in school, and when many children get up to half their daily calories from school meals, it's clear that we as a nation have a responsibility to meet as well," Mrs. Obama said. "We can't just leave it up to the parents. I think that parents have a right to expect that their efforts at home won't be undone each day in the school cafeteria or in the vending machine in the hallway. I think that our parents have a right to expect that their kids will be served fresh, healthy food that meets high nutritional standards."
In response, Don Surber offers this alternative perspective:
If kids get more than half their calories at school (and shouldn't schools teach kids instead of feeding them?) and they are fat, then the government ? not parents ? is to blame. Logic would dictate that the government is irresponsible and incompetent when it comes to feeding children.
It would be interesting to compare the weights of home-schooled children and the free lunch bunch.
Logic? Who needs stinkin' logic?
