Food Police

The Beer:  The Liberty is nearly gone; the Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot is not far behind.  Both have been a delicious part of my nutritious life and Empress Michelle wouldn't want me partaking.

The Bicycle:  On the work stand waiting for an inside-project day between now and March.

The VRWC:  Gosh...this is a, really.

Here is the bizzaro-world comment of the entire piece:

Margo Wootan of the Center for Science in the Public Interest says the bill is aimed at curbing daily or weekly bake sales or pizza fundraisers that become a regular part of kids' lunchtime routines. She says selling junk food can easily be substituted with nonfood fundraisers.
"These fundraisers are happening all the time," Wootan said. "It's a pizza sale one day, doughnuts the next... It's endless. This is really about supporting parental choice. Most parents don't want their kids to use their lunch money to buy junk food. They expect they'll use their lunch money to buy a balanced school meal."

In what UNIVERSE does that work?  What if I WANT my kid to have pizza and doughnuts every day?  But seriously, what's next?  Only organic food can be served at schools?  Children can no longer eat meals at home? They must eat the government-approved menu at school?

This is what we get in Lame Duck.  And Republicans voted for this abomination!  

Throw them all out.
